20 ways to maximize collaboration with the new Gmail interface

The inbox sure ain't what it used to be.It's hard to even remember now, but way back in the prehistoric internet era of the early 2000s, an inbox was quite literally just an inbox — a place where your incoming email landed and waited for you to answer (or, perhaps more likely, ignore) it.Now, following Google's recent repositioning of Gmail as a collaboration-friendly productivity hub, email is only one small part of what the inbox represents. The new Gmail setup is a mashup of email, one-on-one messaging, channel-driven team chat, individual and group video meetings, and even multiperson document work. It's a "new home for work," as Google puts it, and there's really no single point of focus — as the website's newly expanded left-of-screen sidebar makes immediately apparent.To read this article in full, please click here

Should IT buy the new iPhone 12 Pro? Almost certainly not

Reviewing all of the material Apple released about its iPhone 12 Pro line, it's clear that Apple has some of the best marketing talent anywhere. But when it comes to whether enterprise IT should consider buying these phones — for those operations where BYOD hasn't already alleviated the need to buy phones — it doesn't make sense.Apple's great at making something irrelevant sound fantastic and a must-have feature. The biggest bogus claim for this year's rollout involves greater network speeds in the form of 5G support. Others have done a wonderful job of debunking that claim. The upshot of the 5G problem is that the 5G infrastructure simply doesn't exist yet in any meaningful way. That means the carriers can't deliver better speeds for almost all interaction points.To read this article in full, please click here

Editor's note: Dell is a client of the author.Like most tech events this year, Dell Technologies World is virtual. And like most companies, Dell is adjusting to the New Normal where most employees are still — and may remain — working from home.

Why 5G phones aren't a smart investment in the future (yet)

Here's an amusing little disconnect to wrap your musty ol' mammal-brain around: Right now, when you're looking at new phones, 5G is everywhere. You can hardly avoid it!And yet, if you find yourself holding one of those fancy new 5G-capable contraptions, you'll quickly be confronted with a competing reality: Out in the real world, when it comes to actual usage and availability, 5G is practically nowhere.Gee whiz.As we've been thinking through Google's 2020 Pixel lineup (and as our Apple-adoring amigos begin pondering a similar "To 5G or not to 5G?" decision on the iDevice front), I've heard lots of questions about the value of buying a smartphone with 5G today and whether it might be a smart long-term strategy — even if the value of 5G at this particular moment is questionable (at best).To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft Patch Alert: October 2020

October 2020 brought a lighter-than-usual crop of patches. For the first time in recent memory, there were none at all for Internet Explorer or the (Chromium-based) Edge browser. The cumulative updates went in with few reports of problems, although there were many complaints about printers not working after the update.Strange things happened, though, outside the usual monthly patching schedule. The day after Patch Tuesday, Microsoft announced a(nother) fix for a security hole in the HEVC codec — CVE-2020-17022 — distributed, once again, only through the Microsoft Store.To read this article in full, please click here

My new favorite Windows update setting

I’ve been a patcher of Windows machines for … well, a long time — so long ago I remember when we didn’t have a Patch Tuesday. Instead, we got updates on any-time-the-patches-were-ready-day-of-the-week. So I’ve long been a proponent of controlling when and how updates install. Windows 10 patching has come a long way since it was first introduced to the patching public. Initially, its patching processes were heavy handed; Windows pushed updates to users whether we liked it or not. Now – as long as you have Windows 10 Professional– Microsoft is much less a bully and, in the case of the feature release process, almost gentlemanly like in its demeanor and patience.To read this article in full, please click here

USB-C explained: How to get the most from it (and why it keeps getting better)

You’ve probably noticed something strange about many of the latest phones, tablets and laptops at your company: The familiar rectangular Type-A USB ports are gone, replaced by smaller oblong connectors. USB-C has taken over at work, at home and at school.While many iPhone and iPad models stick with Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector, USB-C is now part and parcel of most laptops, phones and tablets made today. Even the latest MacBooks and Chromebooks are part of the movement to USB-C.[ Related: How to use a smartphone as a mobile hotspot ] What is USB-C? USB Type-C, usually referred to as just USB-C, is a relatively new connector for delivering data and power to and from computing devices. Because the USB-C plug is symmetrical, it can be inserted either way, eliminating the frustrations of earlier USB ports and putting it on a par with Apple’s reversible Lightning plug.To read this article in full, please click here

How this tech-forward insurance might save you time and money

We don’t mean to scare you, but have you ever thought about what will happen if your home and valuables get damaged or lost? Disaster can strike anytime, and it can happen to anyone. When it does, how many thousands of dollars would you be down? That’s why we put up with insurance companies. It's not the most fun task to deal with, but it’s a lot better than losing everything you own. Of course, that doesn't make handling claims any easier. Insurance companies are notoriously slow, and did we mention they're slow? Even getting approved for renters and homeowners coverage takes ages. Once you're finally approved, you end up paying hundreds or even thousands each year on premiums. The least they could do is reimburse us quickly when our property is damaged or stolen. To read this article in full, please click here

Whatever platform you use, when you work from home you’ll want to optimize Wi-Fi performance as it’s hard to stay productive when your network crawls.Start in the right place Never ignore the basics: Move your router so it is not on the floor and isn’t behind any large objects. Update the software on all your equipment, including your router, printer and any other connected device. Restart everything, including disconnecting your router from power for a moment or two. Consider extending your network, or replacing it with a mesh network of some kind. Change your Wi-Fi password Changing your Wi-Fi password will knock all your devices (including those you've forgotten about) off your network, which is a good thing as you can then reintroduce them as and when you need them.To read this article in full, please click here
