Anker releases $100 24K gold USB-C to Lightning cable for fancy lads

30 May, by Brian Fagioli[ —]
Imagine being a fancy lad — a sophisticated man about town that draws attention and respect from everyone around you. Women want to be with you. Men want to be you. You have style, class, and a bank account that holds much money. Your car is foreign and your clothes are expensive. You of course use an iPhone, because that’s what high-class people own. Android is for peasants! When you need to charge your iPhone, you don’t use the cable it came with, do you? Oh, of course not — that would be so pedestrian. If you are truly a… [Continue Reading]

29 May, by Brian Fagioli[ —]
Now is a wonderful time to be in the market for a laptop. There are many great models powered by the latest Intel and AMD processors.

Whether your budget is a few hundred bucks -- or a few thousand -- there is a quality laptop out there for… [Continue Reading]

play episode
29 May, by Wayne Williams[ —]
Microsoft began to roll out the latest big feature update for Windows 10 a couple of days ago, and you can get it via Windows Update, or force the update if it’s not yet showing up for you, although that’s probably not a great idea given the current number of known issues. With each new OS update, however, some existing features get dropped, or stop being actively developed. Here’s what’s missing in Windows 10 2004, the May 2020 Update. REMOVED FEATURES: Cortana -- Cortana has been updated and enhanced in the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. With these changes, some… [Continue Reading]

The secret life of discontinued apps

29 May, by Ian Barker[ —]
When a book goes out of print the publishers don't pop round and remove old copies from your shelves. Similarly, when an app is discontinued it can be taken off the app stores but continues to linger on users' devices. Mobile security company Wandera has been taking a look at what happens to these with an analysis of six-months' worth of apps that were removed from the app stores, along with apps that were installed on customer devices prior to the six-month period and, subsequently, removed. It finds productivity accounts for the highest percentage (38.7 percent) of these apps, with… [Continue Reading]

UK government launches fund to boost smart device security

29 May, by Ian Barker[ —]
It's estimated that there could be as many as 75 billion connected devices worldwide by 2025, but the increased popularity of 'smart' equipment comes with risk as many products currently on sale lack basic cybersecurity. In response to this threat the UK's Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is launching a £400,000 ($490,000) fund for innovators to design schemes to boost the security of internet-connected products. The fund aims to support the development of market of assurance schemes for consumer smart products. Assurance schemes demonstrate that a device has undergone independent testing or a robust and accredited self-assessment process.… [Continue Reading]

Twitter hides Trump tweet for violating rules about glorifying violence

29 May, by Mark Wyciślik-Wilson[ —]
Donald Trump's war with Twitter looks likely to heat up after the social media site hid one of the president's tweets for "glorifying violence". Tweeting about people in people in Minneapolis protesting about the killing of George Floyd by a police officer, Trump referred to the protestors as "thugs". He then went on to say "any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts" -- and it was this phrase which fell foul of Twitter rules.

Securing the remote workforce during COVID-19 and beyond [QA]

29 May, by Ian Barker[ —]
The COVID-19 global pandemic has created a cybercrime playground. From phishing scams to ransomware to social media attacks, COVID-19-focused malware campaigns are on the rise.

29 May, by Mark Wyciślik-Wilson[ —]
Microsoft just managed to release the Windows 10 May 2020 Update in May, and many people are eager to get their hands on it -- but not everyone is being offered it straight away.

Microsoft hopes old video games will get people to buy Xbox Series X instead of possibly superior Sony PlayStation 5

28 May, by Brian Fagioli[ —]
It is never fun to buy the same game over and over again as it gets repeatedly re-released for newer and newer consoles. So naturally, backwards compatibility is a good thing. Microsoft seems to be hoping the ability to play old games will make the terribly named Xbox Series X attractive to consumers. In fact, the company isn't just promising backwards compatibility, but the ability to make some old games look and run better on the newer hardware. You will even be able to use Quick Resume -- the ability to start playing exactly where you left off -- with these… [Continue Reading]
