And all it takes is 10 seconds of trying to wrestle with the on-screen keyboards on that other smartphone platform to appreciate our advantage.We've got plenty of exceptional keyboard choices 'round these parts, too, but Google's Gboard keyboard has really risen up as the best all-around option for Android input as of late. That's in large part because of its top-notch typing basics and its seamless integration of tasty Google intelligence, but it's also because of all the clever little shortcuts it has lurking beneath its surface.To read this article in full, please click here

Avoid calendar clashes with a new breed of scheduling apps

What’s the longest it has ever taken you to schedule a meeting? I can recall being on email chains that lasted weeks, with 60 or more replies-to-all flying around to a dozen people. As soon as everyone agrees on a time, of course, someone’s schedule changes and the whole process starts over again.Scheduling meetings is a task that has stubbornly resisted automation in part because the tools have been poorly integrated and also because of people’s natural inclination to do everything by email. Scheduling solutions may be in for a revival, though, now that businesses are settling on a limited spectrum of office productivity tools and artificial intelligence is coming into the picture.To read this article in full, please click here

Windows 11: Déjà vu all over again?

For long-time Microsoft watchers, there might have been a moment of déjà vu last month as the Redmond, Wash. developer announced its upcoming Windows 11 operating system.The moment? When they read this line in the company's official Windows 11 FAQ: "If you're currently shopping for a new PC look for 'Free upgrade to Windows 11' on the fact tag."A decade and a half ago, Microsoft used something similar to market the PCs that were supposed to run its then-impending Windows Vista, with stickers at retail and labels online stating which machines were "Vista Capable."To read this article in full, please click here

BrandPost: Banking Giant BDO and Huawei Collaborate to Provide Inclusive Financial Services for Filipinos

The average person in the Philippines spends more time on the Internet than any other country in the world. Filipinos are online over 11 hours each day, compared to a global average of just six hours. Indeed, with a total population of more than 100 million, 71% of Filipinos are active Internet users, creating the perfect environment to develop the country’s digital economy through Financial Technology (also known as FinTech).Despite being the most active online, more than 50 million Filipinos — over half the population — do not use any form of online banking. According to an official government report published in 2019, only 8% of Filipino adults have an active online account. This, combined with the 97% of Filipinos who still trade in cash, has created increased risks during the global pandemic when in-person interactions are limited.To read this article in full, please click here

How Valley Behavioral Health uses Slack in a regulated industry

Team collaboration tools have become popular in a variety of sectors in recent years, replacing email with group chat “channels” for real-time communication. For Valley Behavioral Health, that's meant using Slack to improve the flow of information between staffers while ensuring that patient data remains protected.Although it's largely a Microsoft shop, the Utah-based mental health services provider uses Slack’s Enterprise Grid for internal communications among its 750 employees, connecting doctors, therapists, social workers and other staff members.Valley Behavioral Health has channels for care coordination and a broad range of other purposes, from HR-related queries to property management issues (users can upload a photo of faulty equipment in office buildings, for example) to IT ticket submission. There’s also a  “general” channel allows for informal conversations between colleagues.  To read this article in full, please click here

Apple plans an all-5G iPhone range, but not until '22

But you can expect adoption on both fronts to accelerate into 2022.Good news, bad news Let’s get to the bad new first: If a report on Nikkei is to true, Apple won’t introduce an all-5G iPhone range until 2022, when it is expected to also introduce an A15-powered iPhone SE with 5G, but no iPhone mini. The current iPad Pro range also features 5G, but we have no info on any plans to extend this to other models.   To read this article in full, please click here

Email now and forever

Sometimes a story forces itself on me. First, I read a New York Times piece that raised a question: Could Gen Z free the world from email?. (The answer is no.) Then, I had a friend of a friend ask me if they could just replace email with Slack. The answer this time: Hell no.Here's why.First, there's a reason we've been using email for decades now. It just works. Really, it's that simple. In particular, the version of email that almost all of us use today, which is based on the Internet RFC-822 standard, works everywhere for everyone. You may work in Antarctica with an email domain ending in ".aq," but I can still send you an email with the address JaneDoe@SomePlaceReallyCold.aq and my note will get to you in a few seconds.To read this article in full, please click here
