I used another financial organisation's webs(h)ite the other day which blocked the clipboard. I'd dutifully created a 20+ character password with numbers, upper and lower case letters and symbols. I took three attempts to type it in accurately, by the time I was done I was almost ready to chuck the laptop out of the window....
Feature complete Photoshop is coming to iOS next year - on iPads. The issue with a desktop on a small screen is obvious.
I've been using Lightroom on an iPad for a while and it's surprisingly good, to the point that I use my desktop PC much less. On the iPhone, I find it a bit painful as the screen is too small so there are a lot of "clicks" to get to each menu item (admittedly this is on a 5S).
I was assisting a guy with a large hold in him and pulled out an iPhone to call the cavalry, only to find the battery had run out...
Thankfully, I knew the battery was crap and also took out my cheap Android phone which has my old UK number and was able to get him the help he needed.
When they studied the falls were they fake ones onto a crash mat or were they real ones with video or some kind of validation? Also, were they young or old people falling?
I've been involved in clinical trials with accelerometers and detecting falls is very hard; not to mention the liability from missed falls and also false alarms.
Hmm, an app to give remote management access to your sensitive network equipment. Not sure registration with the vendor is your biggest security risk there buddy...
I can see how sometimes this would be useful. If you're running networks for a load of SMEs then having them all in the same place is a huge time saver (Ubiquiti's Unifi lets you do this*); the alternative would be to have to VPN in to each site in turn to see how things are going on.
*I do have the Cloud side of things on my setup disabled though (and also on Netgear Nighthawk gear it replaced)
>If so, it is easy, the call should come out with the public general number of the hospital.
Even that could be classed as sensitive. Where I used to live in the UK there was a separate "trust" for all the less glamorous specialities, eg STDs, mental health etc.*
*I don't agree that these should be farmed off into another group BTW...
1. It was both the App and the Website - so presumably that narrows it down further.
The app tends to dump you onto a website to do a surprising number of things.
I'm almost pleased that the BA attempts to make themselves into an expensive budget airline persuaded me to use a proper budget airline and avoid this!
Yesterday in normally organised-Switzerland:
Doctor sentences me to more physio
Dr ticks some boxes on a physio form
I carried said bit of paper to an admin
Admin enters info onto a computer
Admin prints out another sheet of paper
Tomorrow I will hand this onto the physio...
...Who will then hand it to his admin who will probably reenter the selfsame data manually....
Apparently Capita is "well positioned to play a leading role in the transformational journeys being undertaken by the public and private sectors,"
To "secure Capita's position as the digital transformation partner of choice".
Please Mr Putin can we borrow one of these please -->
We'll even launch it from orbit to make sure....
A risk is that the level of specialist Appliance support will fall as experienced Appliance Team TSEs in the UK move across to the Core Team, and support calls needing Appliance Team specialist-level expertise get serviced by the new Appliance Teams in the USA and India, where the staff will not, initially, have the same level of experience.
Or maybe customers will ring "their" old TSEs who will help out of customer loyalty?
Good luck to all those impacted by this.
>BT reckoned the deal will help medics get themselves and their patients' data on the cloud,
How is this automatically better than running systems in a secure BT or NHS data centre?
>and then to "access patient data securely over high-bandwidth digital connections
Just wondering what a high bandwidth non-digital connection looks like...
a malicious person could send requests containing directory traversal "character sequences", fooling the target server into returning the contents of file directories – or even allowing the attacker to create their own files.
Potentially dumb question: Why don't their automated testing tools scan for this kind of vulnerability? Directory traversal exploits aren't exactly new.
Coming in at a gnat’s whisker under $100 per year, the subscription represents excellent value when compared to an equivalent perpetual licence purchase (in the short term at least.) When stacked up against something like LibreOffice which, frankly, does the majority of what a Home user needs, that value proposition is a little more whiffy.
Or you could look at it from the point of view that you get a free Office subscription for roughly the cost of Dropbox Plus.
It hasn't stopped, but their face when we give them an old laptop of the same vintage as their broken one from the stack of returned ones is priceless - "You're due a new one in 14 months, this will tide you over".
My Company phone's screen developed a fault; the Service Desk took great pleasure in pointing out that I'd only had it for 20ish months and that as it was less than two years old I'd get another identical model. The annoying thing was that I hadn't dropped it and it had genuinely developed a problem.
Knowing my luck it'll die next week when the new Apple phones are announced and it'll look like an "accident"...
