16 ways to speed up Windows 10

Want Windows 10 to run faster? We've got help. In just a few minutes you can try out 15 tips; your machine will be zippier and less prone to performance and system issues.1. Change your power settings If you’re using Windows 10’s “Power saver” plan, you’re slowing down your PC. That plan reduces your PC’s performance in order to save energy. (Even desktop PCs typically have a “Power saver” plan.) Changing your power plan from “Power saver” to “High performance” or “Balanced” will give you an instant performance boost. To do it, launch the Control Panel app, then select Hardware and Sound > Power Options. You’ll typically see two options: “Balanced (recommended)” and “Power saver." (Depending on your make and model, you might see other plans here as well, including some branded by the manufacturer.) To see the “High performance” setting, click the down arrow by “Show additional plans.” To read this article in full, please click here

Video vs. VR: What’s missing for successful collaboration?

Just about every new software solution that allows you to communicate remotely these days is called a “collaboration product.” But most of the options that are videoconferencing-based focus on communication, while the mixed-reality platforms now beginning to explore the metaverse might actually be better for collaboration.The difference between the two? How they’re used. Mixed reality can help people collaborate on a common product or service that can be manipulated virtually. Videoconferencing basically virtualizes meetings where a limited number of people present to a larger audience. It isn’t ideal for collaboration due to the lack of actual conversations between participants and the tendency to focus on one-too-many communications.To read this article in full, please click here

What you need to know about NFTs

Unless you live in a cave, you’re almost certainly aware of a new internet phenomenon called non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The media hasn’t been able to get enough of this topic since a South Carolina artist sold a digital collage last March for the staggering sum of $69.3 million. Even more mind-boggling is the fact that the creation can be freely copied and posted by anyone.Many people are getting rich off of NFTs right now. In December nearly 29,000 collectors banded together to pay $91.8 million for a single piece of digital artwork. It was the highest price ever paid for a work by a living artist in any medium. Last year The New York Times’ Kevin Rose sold a NFT of one of his columns for more than $1 million (the proceeds went to charity).To read this article in full, please click here

Can Google be trusted?

For years, it seemed, Google lived up to its old motto, “Don’t be evil.” It also seemed to do no wrong in terms of product superiority.Google built its reputation as an ethical company that out-performed competitors. But is that reputation still deserved?One thing is true: It’s been a bad year for Google’s reputation.Does Google engage in unethical business practices? An antitrust lawsuit brought by a coalition of US states in 2020 and published in un-redacted form last week alleges that Google suppressed competition by manipulating advertising auctions.Google used what are called “second price” auctions, where the highest bidder wins the auction, but pays the publisher an amount equal to the second-highest bid. If one company bids $10 per click, another bids $8 and another $6. The $10 bidder wins — but pays $8 per click to the publisher.To read this article in full, please click here

Android's forgotten shortcut superpowers

I sure do love me a good time-saver. And sometimes, the best time-savers of all are the ones that are right under the surface of our favorite apps and services, just waiting to be seen — or maybe remembered.I'll admit it: Even as someone who uses and thinks about Android almost constantly, as part of both my life and my job, I frequently find myself surprised by how often I stumble onto something that I knew about at some point but long ago forgot to keep using. It happened to me with some of the Android Assistant tricks we talked about a couple months ago, and it's happened to me yet again now with a powerful shortcut system built right into Android and supported by oodles o' different apps.To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft beefs up Edge's security against zero-day attacks

In the latest release of its Edge beta, Microsoft introduced a new way for IT admins to better secure the Chromium-based browser against web-based attacks.The release notes for Microsoft Edge Beta Channel describe the new security features as employing several techniques to guard against so-called zero-day exploits; Zero-day exploits are software or network vulnerabilities developers are unaware of, and so they’ve not been patched.Imagine if the keylock mechanism on your home’s backdoor was faulty and jiggling the doorknob released the latch. Burglars could walk door to door looking for that particular vulnerability and jiggle doorknobs until one opened. Zero days are the same concept, but in cyberspace.To read this article in full, please click here

Meta's Workplace touts upcoming WhatsApp integration for frontline workers

Workplace by Meta has announced plans to roll out an integration with WhatsApp this year to better support frontline workers whose technology needs often take a back seat at many companies.When the pandemic hit in 2020, many companies found it hard to reach their frontline workforce because they did not have traditional lines of communication within their wider organization. According to Deskless Not Voiceless: The 2021 Frontline Barometer — which examined the views of 7,000 frontline workers and 1,350 C-suite executives in seven countries — only 55% of frontline workers surveyed felt connected to the company headquarters. And 75% of the respondents said they don’t completely trust their organizations to be transparent about company news and updates.To read this article in full, please click here

Apple (and everyone) needs harmonized digital health regulation

Has Apple lived up to its promises on digital health? Perhaps not, but perhaps this is because we lack international standards for digital medical technology.A heavily regulated space Digital health is, rightfully, a heavily regulated space. Those who build solutions in that space must prove their products do what they claim. An easy way to see it is that while you can say apps and services may be of use for overall health, you can’t say they will make a difference — unless you can prove that claim.To read this article in full, please click here

What’s an office good for, anyway?

Office space—its design and the concepts that drive that design—are a major contributor to company culture, employee satisfaction, and productivity. The ideal hybrid work office for your company is yet to be fully determined, but what we do know is that it’s the place where employees get what they can’t get at home.One little-appreciated fact about working from home (WFH) and remote work is that everybody’s workspace is different: Family members, children, roommates, visitors, neighbors, and others may cause constant interruptions for some employees. An office can provide an oasis where those workers can work in silence without interruption. Some remote workers have slow consumer connectivity options. An office can offer high-speed fiber access to the internet. Home offices can make employees feel disconnected, isolated, insecure, and depressed. Occasional days in an office can erase those feelings. Home offices are almost never great places for business meetings. Restaurants and coffee shops may be less than ideal, too—especially when discussing sensitive topics like mergers, intellectual property, business secrets, and competitive analyses. A physical office can provide a professional, provisioned, and acoustically secure space for proper business meetings. Central offices can provide all the things that home offices cannot for most employees, without provisioning individual office space for every employee.To read this article in full, please click here

How to keep your apps up to date in Windows 10 and 11

Look around a typical Windows desktop. Whether it’s running Windows 10 or 11, chances are that it’s running at least a couple of dozen Windows applications (.exe files), and at least four dozen Microsoft Store apps. On my local fleet of 10 PCs, the range for applications is from a low of 24 to a high of 120; for Store apps, it ranges from 49 to 81. Such numbers are quite typical, if my online research is at all accurate.In general, it’s considered good security practice to keep apps and applications up-to-date. Why? Because many updates involve security patches and fixes that block potential attacks and prevent unauthorized and unwanted access to applications and their data (and sometimes, the host OS and the PCs they run on). In this story, I will offer some tools to help you streamline this process, along with some instructions on how to put them to work to help you keep your apps and applications current and safe.To read this article in full, please click here
