Microsoft goes very small for Windows 10 1909's 'On' switch

Microsoft has trumpeted the smaller size of Windows 10 1909, the fall feature upgrade that broke the twice-annual mold the company used in 2017 and 2018. But how much smaller is it?According to members of the Insider team who held an online discussion Thursday, a lot smaller.The so-called "enablement package," the download that when installed transforms Windows 10 1903 - the full-featured upgrade released May 21 - into November's 1909, weighs in at just 180KB, as in kilobytes.[ Related: Windows 10 November 2019 Update: Key enterprise features ] (For context, 180KB is about 0.18MB, or less than 20% of a megabyte. More telling, it's about 10 times the size of a two-page Microsoft Word document. Downloading a 180KB file would be seemingly instantaneous on all but the slowest broadband connection; a torpid 1Mbps connection, for instance, would download that file in about one second.)To read this article in full, please click here

Flashback Friday: Your traffic is just going to degrade our perfect network link

This IT pilot fish and his co-workers have spent a week in heated discussions with the networking group. The subject: some major network problems between two particular sites. Why heated? Networking swears it can’t see any problems on the lines, so the problem must be with IT’s servers.But fish and friends know better; at some points, the line between the two sites is dropping out completely.It’s impossible to know how long the impasse might have lasted if someone at one of the sites hadn’t asked the networking people the right question: “Are we running on the emergency standby route?”The reply: “Err, yes; shall we switch you back to the primary route now?”To read this article in full, please click here

The 5 true takeaways from Android's camera vulnerability circus

I don't know if you've read much news this week, but it seems the sky is falling and we're all terribly doomed.No, I'm not talking about that news — as usual, that's another column for another publication — but rather the news that a security flaw in some Android camera apps could turn our phones into privacy-plundering spy portals and bring an end to human life as we know it.I mean, have you seen some of these headlines?! "Hundreds of millions of Android phone cameras can be hijacked by spyware" "Android flaw lets rogue apps take photos, record video even if your phone is locked" "An Android flaw lets apps secretly access people's cameras and upload the videos to an external server" Holy hibiscus, Henry! Even I'm trembling from all of that, and I know it's a bunch of misguided, sensationalized hooey.To read this article in full, please click here

Throwback Thursday: See if you can wriggle out of this one

It’s several years ago during a major virus outbreak — if you know your history of computer viruses, you can narrow it down — and a user at a remote site calls this pilot fish to complain that her computer won’t let her get any work done.“I asked her if she had called the local technician — who worked for me — and she replied that she had called him numerous times but he had not picked up his phone,” says fish. “I told her I would take care of it.”Fish calls his tech, who says he has spoken to the user each time she called and explained to her that he’ll help her as soon as he can, but he’s finishing work in another area.That satisfies fish, who goes back to his own work. And soon he gets a message from his tech, sent from the irate user’s email account, reporting that the tech checked the user’s PC, found a virus and removed it, and updated the PC’s virus definitions. Case closed.To read this article in full, please click here
