Slack begins rolling out video and audio message ‘clips’

Slack is rolling out a video and audio messaging tool that lets workers send short recordings to colleagues instead of scheduling lengthy meetings — another example of the growing trend toward "asynchronous" communications.Users create short recordings — “clips” — they can send via direct messages or into channels to be accessed by colleagues whenever it's convenient. Recipients can then respond in whatever format suits them best, be it video, audio or text.[ Related: Next-gen digital whiteboards: 7 shared canvas apps for visual collaboration ] The clips, which are live-captioned, can be slowed down or sped up as desired when they're accessed. And the text from automatically generated transcriptions of video and audio is also searchable within Slack’s app.To read this article in full, please click here

My boss, the algorithm

It wasn’t so long ago that Uber started a revolution in work: managing workers—or is it freelancers?—via an algorithm-driven app. The gig economy was born. Its promise was to save consumers money and enable anyone with a car to earn quick, easy cash. And, of course, to make Uber’s founders and investors rich.That was then. We know better now.Oh, the model is more popular than ever. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, for example, food delivery services exploded: 60% of US consumers now order delivery or takeout once per week from DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub-Seamless, or their minor competitors. There’s only one little problem. All those gig economy promises turned out to be lies—an important lesson for smaller firms that might be tempted to try to mimic all that “success.”To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft releases new perpetual Office for enterprise

Microsoft last week announced the availability of the next edition of perpetual-license Office for commercial and government customers.Dubbed "Office LTSC 2021," as in "Long-term Support Channel," the new Office suite was built as a subset of the feature catalog of Office 365 (and its more expensive, expansive sibling, Microsoft 365) that, once released, will live unchanged until it exhausts support."Keep in mind that Office LTSC 2021 includes only some, but not all, features that are available in versions of Office that come with a Microsoft 365 (or Office 365) plan," Microsoft warned in a support document. "Office LTSC 2021 won't receive any new features now that it has been released."To read this article in full, please click here

A penchant for patching: After 20 years, the system’s still a mess

As a Microsoft Patch Lady, I’ve been patching computers and servers for more than 20 years. We started with a process that wasn’t well planned. We had no set day or time for when patches were released, and no way to centrally manage and deploy updates. Over the years Microsoft has moved to a more dependable deployment plan and the ability to manage updates through platforms ranging from Windows Update to Windows Software Update Services to Cloud services.So things should be better now, right? We’ve had 20 years to get this right.And yet, here’s what I’ve seen regarding patching in just the last week.We are now on three months and counting of continuing issues with printing caused by patches. (This month included yet another fix for another print spooler vulnerability.) I’ve seen businesses dealing with new side effects directly impacting printing and, interestingly enough, these are businesses that didn’t have problems with earlier updates. This month, Windows 10 peer-to-peer networks appear to be the most affected. (FYI: The trigger for all of these printer issues seems to be older Type 3 printer drivers. Moving to type 4 drivers might help if that’s an option for you.)To read this article in full, please click here

What’s not coming (yet) in iOS 15/iPadOS 15

Apple ships the latest iteration of its operating systems for iPads and iPhones today, but some (though not all) of the most enterprise-friendly features won’t be ready on day one.What you get with iOS 15/iPadOS 15 Despite the extent of this list, you will still be gaining a slew of new features when you do upgrade your operating system(s). Focus, for example, will help you keep your head down to get things done, while the new design of Safari at present seems like great news to anyone else creating browsers for iOS. Maps gives new views, including 3D views, and you’ll get much better sound during FaceTime calls. Photos gets much better at identifying and sharing memories selected from \ your collection. Live Text, a slew of privacy protecting features, and excellent improvements to Contacts, Notes and Reminders — including support for tags — should give most iPhone and iPad users plenty of useful new tools.To read this article in full, please click here

How Apple is changing MDM in iOS 15

One of the biggest enterprise additions to iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 is a significant change to Apple’s MDM (mobile device management) protocol. Earlier MDM changes primarily focused on adding new management, security, or deployment features, extending what MDM could enforce. Declarative management, introduced at the company’s developer conference in June, is the first change that modifies the protocol itself.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story)

Legacy apps are at risk with the September Patch Tuesday update

This week's Patch Tuesday was an unusual update from Microsoft and we have added Windows, the Microsoft development platform, and Adobe Reader to our "Patch Now" schedule. These updates are driven by the zero-day patch (CVE-2021-40444) to the core Microsoft browser library MSHTML. In addition to leading to significant remote code execution worries, this update may also lead to unexpected behaviours in legacy applications that depend on or include this browser component. Be sure to assess your portfolio for key apps that have these dependencies and perform a full functionality test before deployment. (We have identified some key mitigation strategies for handling ActiveX controls and for protecting your system during your testing and deployment phases.)To read this article in full, please click here

Should the brilliant new iPad mini go Pro?

I imagine the A15 processor inside the iPad mini may deliver similar performance to what it can achieve inside the smaller iPhone. We don’t have the benchmark data to prove this assumption yet, but it's possible — assuming Apple hasn’t downclocked the chip.To read this article in full, please click here

Best-loved productivity tools of the rich and famous

What’s that one productivity tool you simply couldn’t live without? For me, it’s Dragon NaturallySpeaking, the voice recognition package that, despite its many quirks and frustrations, has saved me countless hours of keyboard time over the past 15 years.This week I set out to find a NaturallySpeaking equivalent for other business professionals. I posted a simple question on Twitter and the sourcing site Qwoted: “What’s the one digital productivity tool you would take if you had to be marooned on a desert island (presumably with internet access)?” I got way more responses than I could handle.To read this article in full, please click here

The problem with the Poly Studio E70 and X70

I got a briefing this week on the impressive Poly E70 conference room camera and X70 (with built-in speakers). They are impressive pieces of hardware, but they only work with Zoom at the moment (though Teams certification is coming). And that lack of interoperability between conferencing platforms continues to make every device in this class a far riskier buy than they should be. In the context of this Poly announcement, let’s explore why conferencing services providers don’t understand what networking and telecom companies figured out more than three decades ago. In short: this stuff has to be able to interoperate. To read this article in full, please click here
