Getting ready for 21H2 (and maybe Windows 11)

Microsoft recently announced it’s getting ready to test and release Windows 10, version 21H2. The features included in the release are mostly geared towards businesses, and include: New WPA3 H2E (Hash to element) standards for enhanced Wi-Fi security. In 2019, researchers used a side-channel attack to steal a WPA3 password. This standard increases security against current and future side-channel attacks. A new deployment method for Windows Hello for Business that Microsoft calls “Cloud Trust.” It supports simplified passwordless deployments and “get to deployed state” within minutes. GPU compute support in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and Azure IoT Edge for Linux on Windows (EFLOW) deployments for machine learning and other CPU intensive workflows. This enables the graphics card to "to accelerate math-heavy workloads and uses its parallel processing to complete the required calculations faster, in many cases, than utilizing only a CPU.” Microsoft indicated that users will see a routine deployment and servicing process and it’s expected to be a relatively quick installation. I still highly recommend that if you have Windows 10 on any computer, be sure you have an SSD as your main hard drive. If you use old-fashioned IDE drives, you will have a less-than-ideal experience with Windows 10.To read this article in full, please click here

About the Pegasus spyware, Apple's telling the full truth

When it comes to security and privacy issues, Apple generally does a far better job than its rivals — though admittedly for selfish marketing reasons. When comparing Apple's iOS and Google's Android, it's hard to not see that at least Apple makes a good-faith attempt at being security- and privacy-oriented, compared to Google, which would prefer selling ads and anything else it can think of.Still, Apple has been known to twist and shift the truth, omitting germane background info and context when it’s convenient. Remember antenna-gate? The battery-gate brouhaha?To read this article in full, please click here

Avoid calendar clashes with a new breed of scheduling apps

What’s the longest it has ever taken you to schedule a meeting? I can recall being on email chains that lasted weeks, with 60 or more replies-to-all flying around to a dozen people. As soon as everyone agrees on a time, of course, someone’s schedule changes and the whole process starts over again.Scheduling meetings is a task that has stubbornly resisted automation in part because the tools have been poorly integrated and also because of people’s natural inclination to do everything by email. Scheduling solutions may be in for a revival, though, now that businesses are settling on a limited spectrum of office productivity tools and artificial intelligence is coming into the picture.To read this article in full, please click here

For long-time Microsoft watchers, there might have been a moment of déjà vu last month as the Redmond, Wash. developer announced its upcoming Windows 11 operating system.The moment? When they read this line in the company's official Windows 11 FAQ: "If you're currently shopping for a new PC look for 'Free upgrade to Windows 11' on the fact tag."A decade and a half ago, Microsoft used something similar to market the PCs that were supposed to run its then-impending Windows Vista, with stickers at retail and labels online stating which machines were "Vista Capable."To read this article in full, please click here
