Claris launches workflow automation tool beta

Apple-owned Claris has opened beta access to Claris Connect, its new tool for linking third-party apps such as Slack and Mailchimp to automate workflows.  FileMaker started life in 1986 as Claris, an Apple subsidiary set up to develop software products for the Mac, with responsibility for applications such as MacPaint and AppleWorks. In 1998 the company became FileMaker, named after its flagship database management system product, as most of its other offerings fell by the wayside.To read this article in full, please click here

Mobile security perceptions don't approach reality. And that's a problem.

In general, security vendors love consumer surveys where consumers say that they would never, ever, ever do business with a retailer or a bank with poor security practices. But consumers have historically been terrible predictors of their own behavior, and they also tend to tell retailers and banks what they want to hear, rather than the truth.And the truth, based on the public financial filings of plenty of companies that have suffered public data breaches, is that consumers — partially thanks to zero liability programs from the payment card companies — tend to not change retailers or banks when such data breaches happen. Why? Quite a few reasons. First, zero liability sees to it that they don't lose any money (it actually limits losses to $50, but almost no business enforces that, and they tend to simply eat all of the consumer losses). If consumers lost large amounts of money from breached retailers or banks, yes, they'd flee, but that doesn't happen.To read this article in full, please click here

Salesforce announces new iOS enterprise apps

One year since Apple and Salesforce joined forces to make it easier to use the CRM platform with iOS, the two companies have announced new apps and a new SDK.Swift, Siri, SDK and more With around 80% of Fortune 500 companies making use of Salesforce, the move to introduce better iOS support on the CRM platform was pretty much inevitable as enterprise adoption of iOS hit critical mass.Last week’s JNUC 2019 was a great illustration of just how far Apple has come in the sector, with some of the biggest names in enterprise IT now using iOS, and Apple tech used at every single Fortune 500 firm.To read this article in full, please click here

Sorry, Apple: For the education market, Chromebook is the clear winner

Wow. It’s been a long time since we’ve heard any desktop smack talk, but here we are.In a CNET interview, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said that kids “need to have these cutting-edge learning tools.” For Apple, that means, of course, iPads and MacBooks. Fair enough. But then he added, “Chromebooks don’t do that. Chromebooks have gotten to the classroom because, frankly, they’re cheap testing tools for required testing. If all you want to do is test kids, well, maybe a cheap notebook will do that. But they’re not going to succeed.”To read this article in full, please click here

But isn’t that better than the actual goal?

At the company where this pilot fish is working as a contractor, forms are scanned, reviewed, edited, corrected and uploaded to a database. None of this is relevant to what fish is working on, but he’s interested when he learns that the link between the database entries and the scanned images isn’t working.So even after the contract ends, he manages to find out what was going on: The manager of data entry misunderstood the turnaround time requirement. They had to upload documents within 48 hours of data entry, but the manager got the notion that it was 48 hours after receipt of the documents. No matter what, he told the data entry clerks, they had to upload those documents within 48 hours of receiving them.To read this article in full, please click here

What we know about the Win10 version 1909 upgrade — and what you can do about it

Win10 version 1909 is an odd beast. The first of its kind. Billed as a feature update (read: version change) disguised as a quality update (read: pedestrian cumulative update), the general rollout that began on Tuesday seems to be progressing well.Mind you, I don’t recommend that you install 1909 just yet. Like any Windows update, it needs time to ferment before consuming. Version 1909 has a particularly paltry — almost non-existent — list of worthwhile new features.To read this article in full, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: The Undead PC: Dell has the best PC sales in their history

[Disclosure: All of the vendors mentioned are clients of the author.]I’m at Dell Technology Summit this week, and one of the interesting stats from Sam Bird, the impressive executive that heads Dell Technology’s personal systems unit, is that they’ve had the strongest sales year ever. Dell is only Number 3 in volume, but they are Number 1 with a bullet in revenue and profit.This showcases that for companies that execute – including spending money on R&D and marketing – the PC business is as strong, or, in the case of Dell Technologies, stronger than it’s ever been.Let’s face it: The PC’s old days kind of sucked I started as the lead analyst in operating systems for Dataquest back in 1994 and rose with the launch of Windows 95. Back then, people didn’t build their own PCs, and I was one of the first to take a motherboard, processor, hard drive and memory and build what I wanted. Laptop performance was a bad joke, battery life was measured in minutes and a lightweight laptop weighed around 6 lbs. That first PC I built never was stable, took me around two months (part-time) to configure, and the motherboard was held in the case with tape and rubber furniture feet because the mounting holes in the motherboard didn’t match the holes in the case.To read this article in full, please click here

Yes, Google's using your healthcare data – and it's not alone

Google is working with one of the largest healthcare systems in the U.S. to collect patient data on millions of Americans in 21 states and across 2,600 hospitals or clinics in order to analyze it and come up with advice for better patient care and cost cutting measures.The project was reportedly revealed by a whistleblower who said the program, dubbed "Project Nightingale," involved Ascension – the largest Catholic health system in the world – and up to 50 million private medical records from healthcare providers.To read this article in full, please click here

He’s got his number

This pilot fish confesses that there was a time when he was known to take out his frustrations on any hardware that might be within reach.Which is the proximate reason a tech has to be called in one day to repair the phone sitting on his desk. The tech works on it for a while, then comes over to fish to announce, “It’s fixed. Hold out your hand.”Tech drops a bit of broken plastic into fish’s hand — it once served as the button in the cradle that opened and closed the line — with the comment, “You’re a mean man!”Sharky knows you have some true tales of IT life that are off the hook.

JNUC 2019: For enterprise pros, it's like the old days of Apple events

MINNEAPOLIS – “This reminds me of one of the old Apple events,” Apple’s one-time product manager of automation technologies, Sal Soghoian said as we entered the opening Jamf keynote speech at JNUC 2019 earlier this week.I couldn’t help but agree with him by the time the event was winding down.Enterprise and Apple evangelism All of the old Apple event ingredients were there: Enthusiasm, knowledge, curiosity, interest, excitement and for nearly all of the 2,500 Mac professionals at this year's  show, the added attraction about JNUC is that they get to talk how they make their living.To read this article in full, please click here

Motorola's new Razr gives me hope for the future of foldables

All right, stop me if you've heard this one before: After months of rumors and teasing, a snazzy new foldable phone is breaking cover — and promising to change the very way we think about mobile technology. Oh, but in reality, it's expensive and almost certain to be laden with compromises, not least of all its subpar-looking and inherently fragile display.It's a familiar tale for anyone who follows tech news even a little, thanks to Samsung's high-profile Galaxy Fold fiasco, and it's starting all over again with the latest overhyped entry to the foldable phone fold: the new Motorola Razr, which brings the classic flip-phone form back with a 2019 twist and a $1,500 price tag. The phone goes on sale December 26th and is available for now only in the U.S. and only on Verizon — another throwback to a bygone era of mobile technology, though one that's perhaps a tad less endearing.To read this article in full, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Critical updates to Excel and publicly disclosed exploits make for an urgent November Patch Tuesday

It doesn’t always take the drama of a zero-day vulnerability like we saw in September to get our attention. Make no mistake: This is still a really big update for the Windows platform. Two vulnerabilities deserve our attention. The first (CVE-2019-1429) relates to a vulnerability in the Microsoft Script Engine which has been reported as publicly exploited. And the second, (CVE-2019-1457)  is a publicly reported exploit in Microsoft Excel. We also think that the critical update to Exchange Server (CVE-2019-1373) will require immediate attention.To read this article in full, please click here

Throwback Thursday: Oh, sorry, did someone sell off half of YOUR capacity?

Back in the day, the company where this pilot fish works has part of its operations on a mainframe — and mostly that’s fine.“The start of the month — running reports from the prior month — was the busiest time,” says fish. “Fortunately, there was enough capacity that only at month-end did the system hit its limits, and sometimes not even then, if things were spaced out a bit.But then some system engineers decide to cut the capacity of the system by half and sell off the units making up the excess capacity. They call this a win-win: The company will rake in some money, and the system will be utilizing more of its capacity more of the time.To read this article in full, please click here
