iPhone X is a 10

Naturally, we have our iPhone X, and it’s everything we hoped it would be. Getting it was almost as much fun as using it because the Apple hype machine adds so much more intrigue. I was one of 25 people who showed up at the UPS terminal in Parsippany to get our phones when the

Are You Printing Invitations to Your System?

Printers have been fingered as the weak link in many business and home networks. Most small businesses and home users tend to run their printers into the ground, and the longer they hang around without the latest firmware updates, the more vulnerable they are to a cyber-attack. You can stop printing invitations to intruders –

‘KRACKing’ Your Wi-Fi Network

KRACK is an ominously named crypto attack that exploits a flaw in the process of connecting a device and a Wi-Fi network. By allowing network access without the password, effectively it opens up the possibility of exposing credit card information, passwords, and practically any other data on your device. Here’s how to protect yourself –

Here’s Lookin’ at Your Password

Passwords are just as painful for companies that require them as they are for you. And, they’re expensive as well as subject to theft. What are we looking at in the near future? The eyes have it. Microsoft and Apple are moving ahead with facial recognition to replace passwords. The technology is getting better and

iOS 11 Has a Lot to Like

For cars, we really like the “Do Not Disturb, I’m Driving” response to text messages, and for iPads, we like the drag-and-drop feature. The “Do Not Disturb” feature has been available on Android phones, and for somebody

Tips from Orlando

Although we played as much as anyone who visits Orlando, we got a lot of work done at Microsoft’s annual tech conference. When I looked at my calendar, I had booked 21 sessions for the week, each session some 75 minutes long, and I probably walked some 40 miles in the expo. I narrowly avoided

Shooting Yourself in Your IT Foot

We got a call recently from an MIA client who was trying to save money by relying on their “resident IT expert.” They could have shot themselves in the foot, but somehow, a few dance steps worked in their favor. They dodged this bullet, but not everyone is that lucky. Our client is a multi-generational

Equifax and Protecting Your Identity

If anyone learns just one lesson from the recently disclosed hack of Equifax, the credit-rating service that has the keys to many people’s vital data, here it is: You have to take your data protection into your own hands. We had a really queasy feeling when we saw the news reports, and a lot of

Taking its place: Backup and Sync, which will be more powerful. Backup and Sync replaces both the company’s Drive
