Banks and Retailers Are Tracking How You Type, Swipe and Tap
Biometric systems can sometimes detect medical conditions. If a customer with a once-steady hand develops a tremor, her automobile insurance company might get worried. That’s potentially a problem if the customer’s bank, which detected the tremor through its security software, is also her insurer.
So basically they bought the Slack equivalent of Apple’s Workflow/Shortcuts app. Curious what will happen with it.
I hunk he’s forgetting what came before. 2007. Dropbox. 2008 Evernote.
Who was a member of the Rebellion? In 2009, Pinterest, WhatsApp, and Uber all launched. In 2010, Instagram and Xiaomi. In 2011, Snapchat. And in 2012, Toutiao.
Very interesting and in depth read on Google Photos’ code.
50% of the work is done by the square root of the total number of people who participate in the work.
Needless to say, I learned that it’s worth the time up front to assemble your whole team and make sure that everyone is kept up-to-date on developments from the start. Make sure to get your teammates’ input on who should be included. (And who shouldn’t be. Nothing slows a project down like too many cooks in the kitchen.)
I’ve learned that I can’t be very productive working on things I don’t care about or don’t like. So I just try not to put myself in a position where I have to do them (by delegating, avoiding, or something else). Stuff that you don’t like is a painful drag on morale and momentum.
By the way, here is an important lesson about delegation: remember that everyone else is also most productive when they’re doing what they like, and do what you’d want other people to do for you—try to figure out who likes (and is good at) doing what, and delegate that way.
Yikes. Something to watch out for.
Ask them. Repeatedly. Every time. Until they get tired of you asking.
To bring up the "hidden" screen to manually add a configuration profile on an Apple TV, navigate to Settings ⇾ General ⇾ Privacy, select Share Apple TV Analytics, then press the Play button and click on Add Profile.
Operationally, it’s also because Apple has a strong culture and it wishes to preserve it. Acquisitions dilute culture which is why integrations often fail.
The opening space scenes along with the third act are some of the most amazing moments in a Star Wars film to date – they are truly incredible to experience. Jaws WILL be dropped,
the GPS chip. If you’re swimming in the ocean or a lake, your watch uses that to determine how fast and how far you go. But GPS signals don’t travel through H2O. Luckily, people are likely to do freestyle in open water and for that stroke, your arms regularly break the surface. Apple sets the GPS chip in acquisition mode for the whole swim. It looks for the satellite signal each time your hand rises from the water.
Gotta love DerFlounder and running @JAMFSoftware at days like this.
What this means is your offices become “dumb pipes” to the internet and you cloud everything else. No access unless your MFA works. No more perimeters, no more firewalls (at least in the office, probably want some in the cloud).
Then I stopped.
What the hell was I rushing for?
I guess Apple asks a video for the review this time and this is @gruber being smart about it. Love it.
