Smaller iPhone coming soon!

If there was one thing about the iPhone 5 that I missed, it was the smaller size.  Yes the smaller size.  In a race to larger screens, it seems the advantages of a smaller screen are lost on designers.  Smaller screens, smaller sizes (aka just the right size) enables the phone to completely fit in your hand and let the average thumb go all the way around the screen without having to move the phone.

LinkedIn – The Benefits of Meeting Strange People in Dark Cyber-Alleys

Like most of you, I get a ton of “I’d like to connect” traffic. Sure, you hang your digital shingle out there and folks will sometimes throw snowballs at it. I am just not sure if I should accept these invitations from strangers with no 3rd or 2nd connections, let alone 1st connects. Just – “hey there!! let’s connect!!” from all kinds of people selling anything, trying to meet the 500-connection goal (that LinkedIn would have us all embrace…) in competing industries, from polar opposite industries, from all over the place. It’s like meeting strange people in dark cyber-alleys  can be slightly off-putting and disconcerting and will blow up your inbox in no time.

Let’s Talk CRM 2016: Interactive Dashboards

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 has arrived!  Myriad functionality has been packaged with the latest version of the CRM platform, but the most exciting feature for me is Interactive Dashboards.  Originally designed to be an interactive dashboard for customer service in CRM, I believe Microsoft realized the potential of this feature and expanded upon it.

You want how much to do what?

So you’ve heard of Viruses and Phishing attacks, but have you heard of Ransomware? Ransomware is basically a combination of a virus and phishing attack that employs an application to encrypt your data to hold it for ransom. The phishing part of the attack is centered on an email with some type of attachment. An example would be “My Resume for your consideration” with a word document attached. The Word document has macros that will go out to the Internet, download and run an application that will search for and encrypt all of your data files (PDF, Office App files, photos, etc).

Microsoft Surface Pro – Bring me your poor, your tired, huddled PCs…

I got one of these (Pro 1) about 2 years ago and got the Pro 3 just 3 months ago. We are an IT provider so it is important to put on a good show and walk into a meeting flashing a snazzy new tablet around and wowing the crowd. (I suppose…) I liked my Dell laptop and was a bit resistant to this but after about 2 days – this thing rocked! It weighs less, connects to everything, runs all the full-version Windows apps, battery life is easily managed as it has a solid state drive and goes to sleep/wakes like a champ. I can dictate, type, handwrite, snap a pic, mouse, touch, swipe, gesture… The list goes on. Using this with Office 365 and OneDrive is a cinch and now that everything is synced to everywhere and Office Web Apps are free, I have access to everything, everywhere, all the time.
