WWDC: Is Apple preparing to give iPad a mammoth upgrade?

The lack of true multi-tasking has long been a criticism thrown at the iPad, but this may (or may not) be about to change, and we may (or may not) learn more about this at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The big event begins June 6. Let’s mingle, let’s mix it up The evidence for the change is sparse — it consists of additional WebKit code for a multitasking mode that suggests freely-resizable windows. What this might mean in practice is that you’ll be able to open multiple windows on iPad and resize them as you like, closer to the Mac experience.To read this article in full, please click here

Considering contract help? Keep these 10 tips in mind

A record 4.5 million people quit their jobs in March in the U.S. alone, and the ratio of unemployed people to job openings hit a record low.While the “great resignation” will eventually run its course, the attitude changes engendered by the COVID-19 pandemic are likely permanent. One of those is the freedom for people to work whenever and for whomever they want.Upwork reported that 59 million Americans - or 36% of the total workforce - freelanced in 2020, an increase of two million people over 2019.To read this article in full, please click here

6 Android settings for smarter notifications

Ah, notifications. Has any other technological wonder managed to be so incredibly helpful and so impossibly irritating at the same time?Notifications truly are one of our smartphones' greatest strengths — and one of their most irksome annoyances. They keep us connected to important info and yet also keep us tethered to our digital lives at the most inopportune times.Here in the land o' Android, notifications are actually designed in a sensible way that makes 'em reasonably easy to manage and customize. (The same can't be said for, ahem, certain other smartphone platforms.)But taking total advantage of Android's notification intelligence requires a teensy bit of effort. Some of the most helpful and advanced notification options are buried in the software and need a virtual treasure map (and/or a skosh of gentle coaxing) to be summoned into action.To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft pumps the brakes on hiring

Microsoft is pulling back on hiring quotas for its Windows, Office and Teams chat and conferencing software groups.The company is apparently readjusting staffing needs in reaction to a global economy that's been buffeted by rising prices, supply chain problems, and spillover effects from war in Ukraine. The move was first reported by Bloomberg."As Microsoft gets ready for the new fiscal year, it is making sure the right resources are aligned to the right opportunity. Microsoft will continue to grow headcount in the year ahead and it will add additional focus to where those resources go,” the company said in a statement.To read this article in full, please click here

DOJ reverses itself, says good-faith security researchers should be left alone

In a move that could have a major impact on enterprise penetration testing and other cybersecurity tactics, the US Department of Justice last Thursday reversed one of its own policies by telling prosecutors not to prosecute anyone involved in “good-faith security research.”This is one of those common-sense decisions that makes me far more interested in exploring the original DOJ policy (set in 2014, during the Obama era). The underlying law at issue is the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which made it illegal to access a computer without proper authorization. It was passed in 1986 and has been updated several times since then.To read this article in full, please click here

IT salaries aren't keeping up with inflation — but that may soon change

Pay for some IT professionals is failing to keep up with inflation, according to a salary survey by IT employment consultancy Janco Associates for calendar year 2021. But preliminary data indicates pay for tech workers could soon change drastically with job market in IT tight, and many companies eyeing major tech projects in the year ahead.With inflation in the US running at about 8% over the past year, salary increases — even for IT execs — have failed to keep pace.The mean compensation for all IT pros last year rose only 2.05%, with the median salary at $100,022 for those at large enterprises and at $95,681 for IT workers at mid-sized firms, according to Janco.To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft takes productivity, collaboration to the top floor at Build

(Disclosure: The companies mentioned are clients of the author.)Microsoft Build is my favorite Microsoft conference because it usually introduces me to fun new stuff to try out. Having this show be virtual is necessary because of the current environment but disappointing because it’s hard to check out some of the new things remotely. Interestingly, much of what Microsoft has been announcing at Build could fix that at future events because it’s turning up the ability of its tools to operate collaboratively far beyond what’s previously been possible.To read this article in full, please click here

Why you should pay more attention to Apple’s green slide

At every Apple product launch, the company demonstrates a green slide in which it talks about things like energy use and recycling. I've noticed way too many people seem to ignore that slide, but it may be one of the most important ones you see at every product introduction.Let me explain why.Sustainability has become a business imperative for virtually every enterprise, from resource gathering to recycling and every step in between. Like many companies, Apple is developing sustainable business practices across its entire operation.Zooming out, what strategic lessons can business leaders take from its approach?Work with your partners Apple’s environmental reports show it understands that to meet some of the environmental challenges of sustainable business, it isn’t enough just to improve the company’s own operations — it must also take steps to help partners and suppliers improve their own processes. In Apple’s case, this means working with smaller partners to build better business practices; the company’s recent announcement that its supply chain has doubled the use of clean power is part of that investment.To read this article in full, please click here

Android 13's dueling identities

When Android 13 officially arrives this summer, we're bound to see a bunch of befuddled head scratching.It won't be because of heat-induced brain fog and/or dry scalp, either — not entirely, anyway. Instead, this fresh crop of confusion will stem from the fact that after months of buildup and anticipation, Google's latest and greatest Android version isn't gonna look like much for the majority of Android-owning organisms.Sounds strange, I know, but it's true: For anyone carrying a phone that was already running last year's Android 12 software, Android 13 is shaping up to be an incredibly subtle, almost-not-even-noticeable change — at least on a surface level.To read this article in full, please click here

Travelers who plan to work at least part of the time while on summer vacation this year are creating increased travel demand, according to a new study by business consultancy Deloitte.The report examined travelers’ behaviors and preferences, and showed travel concerns over COVID-19 have waned. Those concerns, however, have been replaced by financial worries, with many travelers keeping a close eye on higher costs.After being decimated by the pandemic over the past two years, business travel is expected to return to pre-COVID numbers by 2024, according to the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA).To read this article in full, please click here
