Paul Snedden4,705Shared Circle of IrrelevanceI'm doing this for you, my Google+ family. I am not one for joining the masses and doing whatever the latest fad is, but posting my top 100 relevant persons seemed like a reasonable thing to do to celebrate the 12 month anniversary of Google+ (yes, I'm late). If you got this notification, you're in my top 100. Each one of you is awesome, giving me the content I want to see whilst also giving me lots of laughs along the way.Please enjoy. #top99  2012-07-24 23:55:3310126011CC G+

Kyle Beck66So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware.

I have never been a fan of putting my smartphone in a case. I really don't understand people who encase their mobile device in one of those OtterBox or LifeProof cases that turn the slim, elegant smartphone into some sort of personal armored tank. I love the SlipStopper, though.

Comcast tried to "retain" the wrong customer, and it came back to bite them.

Comcast claims to be "embarrassed" and issued a statement saying, "The way in which our representative communicated with him is unacceptable and not consistent wi...th how we train our customer service representatives. We are investigating this situation and will take quick action. While the overwhelming majority of our employees work very hard to do the right thing every day, we are using this very unfortunate experience to reinforce how important it is to always treat our customers with the utmost respect."

I disagree. I think this is exactly how Comcast--and other Internet, cable TV, wireless providers, etc--train their "customer retention" staff. The whole purpose of that role, and forcing customers to go through them to cancel service is so they can be bullied into... more »

A group called Who's Driving You? has been filling my Inbox with anti-ridesharing service propaganda. The taxicab industry can't handle the competition from services like Uber and Lyft, and it would like to scare everyone into not using tho...se services.

The problem is that taxicabs are guilty of the same things and worse, so Who's Driving You? doesn't make a very compelling case.

Your firewall and antimalware software appear to do an adequate job of detecting and blocking malicious threats, but the discovery of sophisticated cyber espionage attacks like Stuxnet and Duqu challenge that perception. How did these threats manage to circulate in the wild for years without being detected?

I have a portable battery cell that I really love, but it's a bit larger, and I have to remember to charge it or it won't do me any good. This new NomadPlus charger looks very cool because it is more compact, and you'd have to intentionally try NOT to charge it.

LOL. What a moron. What's worse is that a majority of people actually voted for this idiot to REPRESENT them.

I'll tell you what. If America is mandatory viewing to "teach" students about the impact of liberalism on the United States (LOL ...again--can't even type it with a straight face), then The Purge: Anarchy (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2975578/) must also be mandatory viewing to teach students what the United States will become if the Tea Party continues to be allowed to sit at the grown up table.

Even before Microsoft began to officially embrace the idea of a platform-agnostic, mobile first, cloud first strategy, it was already breaking OneNote free from the Microsoft ecosystem. Now, OneNote stands alone as an example of what Microsoft has in store as it continues to adapt to a world where Windows doesn't have a stranglehold on the market.

If you lock and deadbolt your front door, and have bars over your windows, and a monitored alarm system with surveillance cameras...but you leave the key to the door under the welcome mat, you're not really very secure.

It can be a challenge to maintain compliance, especially for companies that must comply with multiple laws or frameworks simultaneously. It's important for organizations to have tools in place to help automate as much as possible so that compliance doesn't become a full-time distraction from the real work the company is supposed to be doing.

The great thing about virtual servers is that you can run a bunch of servers on one physical machine as long as it has the processing power, memory, and storage to handle being shared simultaneously by multiple servers. Don't make the mistake, though, of thinking that if you have security tools installed on the host OS of the physical machine, that the virtual servers will also be protected.

If a security alert goes off on your network, and nobody does anything about it, what's the point. Having a security monitoring and alerting system with no process in place to address, escalate, or resolve the issues is pointless.

Would it make sense if car manufacturers included brakes--but left them disabled by default, and made it your job to choose to turn them on and figure out how to do it? That is sort of how most browsers treat your privacy.

The current security model is essentially a living illustration of shutting the proverbial barn door after the horses have escaped. The vast majority of the security tools we use are only capable of detecting and blocking threats that have already been identified, and even then they're sometimes not very effective.

If you call a wasp a flower, it won't make the sting hurt any less. What you call something means nothing--what matters is what it actually is. When it comes to DevOps, many organizations are already using it, but have no idea what it is or... what it's called.

Microsoft did pretty well over the last quarter according to the Q4 2014 earnings report. That report may shed very little light on how Microsoft will do in future quarters, though, since Microsoft is in the process of completely reinventing itself.

This is very awesome...in theory.

I easily spend more than $120 per year on books, however the value of Kindle Unlimited could be severely handicapped by the fact that the five major publishers are not on board with the program. If the books I want are not part of the 600,000-plus titles available, then it will just be a waste of $10 per month.

I'll have to check it out and find out for myself.

A judge in France ordered a food critic to modify a negative review of a restaurant because it was hurting the restaurant's business. Is the judge a stakeholder in the restaurant?

The whole point of a food critic is to criticize. If the critic's post was in any way inaccurate or slanderous, then so be it. But, if the assessment was honest, no restaurant or judge should be able to demand that a post be removed.

I have never been a fan of putting my smartphone in a case. I really don't understand people who encase their mobile device in one of those OtterBox or LifeProof cases that turn the slim, elegant smartphone into some sort of personal armored tank. I love the SlipStopper, though.

A new study by Microsoft researchers suggests that the established best practices for password security--you know, that advice from security experts you generally ignore anyway--may not be the best solution. The report offers up a new appro...ach to password security complete with a mathematical algorithm to back it up.

A DDoS attack can be a challenge to detect and block because you have to first determine what is malicious vs. what is a legitimate spike in Web traffic, and you have to thwart the attack as close to the source as possible because once it's... in your network eating up bandwidth the damage is already done.

Juniper Networks announced today new enhancements to its DDoS Secure solution that can help organizations defend against DDoS attacks.

Microsoft isn't going to sit idly on the sidelines and let Chromebooks and Android tablets have all the fun. A new generation of economical laptop and tablet options will slow down the success of the Chromebook, and could finally make Microsoft a dominant player in the tablet market.

Comcast tried to "retain" the wrong customer, and it came back to bite them.

Comcast claims to be "embarrassed" and issued a statement saying, "The way in which our representative communicated with him is unacceptable and not consistent wi...th how we train our customer service representatives. We are investigating this situation and will take quick action. While the overwhelming majority of our employees work very hard to do the right thing every day, we are using this very unfortunate experience to reinforce how important it is to always treat our customers with the utmost respect."

I disagree. I think this is exactly how Comcast--and other Internet, cable TV, wireless providers, etc--train their "customer retention" staff. The whole purpose of that role, and forcing customers to go through them to cancel service is so they can be bullied into... more »

Holy crap! Time flies. It is already Patch Tuesday for July 2014. That means there are only five more left until the end of the year.

Even though Microsoft fixed 59 vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer in the June 2014 Patch Tuesday, IE is the center of attention again this month with another 24 flaws fixed.

Dear Every Company--

If you have a recording that says you're experiencing "higher than normal call volume", but you play it 24/7--that IS your normal.

I've figured it out. 

It used to be that the record labels paid radio stations to play certain music in order to artificially promote the artists--a practice known as "payola". 

I'm pretty sure there's a new trend now that is more of a "reverse" or "anti" payola designed to make people turn the radio off. Companies like Pandora, Spotify, iTunes Radio, etc, that want users to listen to streaming music are paying radio stations to play horrible music so that streaming music becomes the clearly superior alternative. It's really the only viable explanation for why radio stations insist on playing--not just playing, but obnoxiously and obsessively playing--really bad songs like Rude by Magic, or anything by Florida Georgia Line. 

I have to admit--it is a very clever strategy, and it worked to get me to stop listening to thera... more »

Microsoft and Google have upped the ante for cloud storage--offering 1TB and unlimited data respectively for certain cloud storage plans. Choosing a cloud storage provider is quickly becoming less about the amount of storage provided, and more about how that storage integrates with the platforms, devices, and software you use everyday.

The first step in defending against cyber attacks and exploits is realizing that such things exist, and understanding how and why your network or PC is vulnerable. 

An alarming percentage of IT professionals seemed to be in denial about the state of the threat landscape last year, but a new survey from Lancope shows that they appear to be much more grounded in reality now.

The best way to execute a successful cyber attack is to make sure it isn't detected in the first place. Advanced evasion techniques enable attackers to fly under the radar and stealthily circumvent security defenses.

A lot of the perception and discussion of DevOps revolves around automating deployment and configuration of virtual servers. That is really just table stakes for DevOps, though, and just scratches the surface of what you can accomplish with DevOps.

Most people are familiar with the iRobot Roomba, but I've been testing out a similar robot vacuum cleaner from Moneual--the Rydis H68 Pro. Overall, I like it, but there are still a few hurdles that need to be cleared in order for the concept to actually live up to its full potential.
