How Apple is improving Siri Shortcuts in iOS, iPadOS

Apple understands that the greatest benefits technology provides can only be realized when technology becomes accessible and easy-to-use. That’s why the company has taken giant steps to improve Siri Shortcuts in iOS 13.Automation for the people Workflow begat an Apple acquisition which itself begat Siri Shortcuts, and while the original solution had passionate adherents, the opacity of the terms used in the Workflow/Shortcuts creation dialog mean lots of people just didn’t use it.This meant it just wasn’t approachable enough.That's a problem, because (as digital transformation experts warn), if you build it they do not come unless you make sure you build it for them.To read this article in full, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Intel’s turnaround is showing strong potential

I watched with interest this week an interview with Bob Swan, Intel’s latest CEO by Fortune's Aaron Pressman. Pressman did a reasonable job getting Swan to answer difficult questions and Swan was quickly able to move from being CFO and acting CEO to full CEO. This isn’t such a bad way to get the job because the Intel board was able to see how Swan actually performed in the job before officially giving him the role.I typically prefer subject matter experts in CEO roles because they tend to perform better, but a CFO does generally know where the bodies are buried and from day one can generally determine where his effort, and the company’s money, needs to be spent.To read this article in full, please click here

Help wanted

This company has been growing for the past couple of decades by acquiring smaller companies that do similar things. In the process, it acquires a lot of solutions these companies had developed, as well as the solutions’ accompanying code. Of course, the acquiring company has been less keen on retaining all the engineers who wrote that code, and year by year, their numbers decrease, until the company finds itself with a whole lot of code that no one really knows and a bunch of young employees.It needs to hire someone to help. It has no problem getting young and smart candidates to interview, but they all lose interest when told that none of the code they are going to have to deploy and maintain is in their preferred languages, it has nothing to do with AI, and none of it is in the cloud.To read this article in full, please click here

How gaming can save high-end smartphones

Smartphone makers have looked to the emerging markets, particularly China, for growth over the past couple of years — especially in the all important high-end market where margins are made. But the Chinese market for high-performance smartphones is becoming saturated, as is much of the rest of the developed world. Many people now balk at spending $1,000-plus each year for a new device that has only relatively modest improvements in features/functions. Indeed, this is a similar problem that the PC space has had for several yearsWhat’s needed is a new growth path for high-end devices. And much like the PC space, phone makers appear to have found one – in gaming. Phone makers are looking to relatively gaming-friendly markets like China and the Far East as the first area to concentrate on but with a bigger vision for other mature markets like North America and Europe.To read this article in full, please click here

How and why Apple users should switch to DuckDuckGo for search

Like liberty for all, privacy demands vigilance, and that’s why Apple users who care about either are moving to DuckDuckGo for search.Why use DuckDuckGo? Privacy is under attack.It doesn’t take much effort to prove this truth. At time of writing, recent news is full of creeping privacy erosion: We’ve seen video conferencing solutions that surreptitiously install software on your Macs; A face changing photography app perhaps implicated in the assembly of a vast database of faces; Ahousehold name in smart speakers sharing your private conversations with people you don’t know, including chatter you didn’t know was recorded in the first place. And then there’s Duck Duck Go.To read this article in full, please click here

Apple, Google, and the copycat conundrum

Let's just get this out of the way right off the bat: Yes, Google copied Apple when it comes to its new Android Q gestures.There's no way around it, really: The idea of having a thin bar at the bottom of a phone's screen that you swipe up on to go home or swipe up and hold to look through your recently used apps is a pretty distinctive element of Apple's current iOS interface.Now let's get something else out of the way: This bit of "great idea stealing," to, ahem, borrow a certain phrase from a certain someone, shouldn't be a major cause for concern among us mere mortals who use these mobile tech products. And, critically, it shouldn't be viewed as a unique or uncommon phenomenon — or anything that even comes close to being a one-directional behavior.To read this article in full, please click here

It’s all been documented

Pilot fish is document control analyst for a massive update and redesign of several dozen systems. Early in the multi-year process he is sent guidelines for naming the documents so that they can be easily identified within a matrix of system development steps. But it’s months later when the documents start arriving. Some have been given names that are pretty close to the guidelines, but others seem to follow no logic at all.Fish emails his boss about the discrepancies. No response. As the weeks and months go by, the names of the documents are even further afield. From time to time, fish asks for clarification. Still no response.In the end, the whole project gets canceled and the documents are to be archived. Then, just as fish is about to retire, he is asked if he would like to keep working. The project? Giving correct names to those 5,000 archived documents.To read this article in full, please click here
