New Slack Team space :: IBM Think
Fri, Apr 28th 2017 3:37p   Volker Weber
The Connect 2017 space went really well. That made me register a new Slack Team space for IBM Think, before that name was taken. I am growing membership very slowly. Currently there are only ten people in the space. I am also not opening up registration by domain. That was one of the things that did not work so well in the old space.

IBM is consolidating its conferences into one big event. Think 2018 will be in Las Vegas from March 19-22. It will replace Connect, InterConnect, Amplify, Edge, Vision, World of Watson and PartnerWorld.

New update options for Windows 10, version 1703
Wed, Apr 26th 2017 8:23a   Volker Weber
Based on feedback from customers, we are making some adjustments to the updates that we are releasing for Windows 10, version 1703 (also known as the 'Creators Update'). With these changes, we will routinely offer one (or sometimes more than one) additional update each month. These additional cumulative updates will contain only new non-security updates, so they will be considered 'Updates'in WSUS and Configuration Manager. That is a very welcome change for Enterprise IT.

Is Slack a product or a feature?
Mon, Apr 24th 2017 2:35p   Volker Weber
This is a very good article on the difficulties you face when you try to replace email with something else. We have been struggling with this for years. Slack wants us to believe it is the future of collaboration. But is it truly a platform for that purpose or a readily replicable feature set? I have a pretty simple formula for the success of any tool: people will use it if they get more out of it than they put in. And from this article I learned (again), how Facebook & Co tip that bal

Samsung Galaxy S8 :: The verdict
Sun, Apr 23rd 2017 11:41a   Volker Weber
I have used the Galaxy S8 for a week, and by the end of the month, it will be back at Samsung. By and large it behaved exactly like I expected. But I have softened by judgement somewhat. The S8 is an almost perfect smartphone. There are only two compromises: Samsung had to move the fingerprint sensor to the back, next to the camera. It would have been better placed underneath the camera, but that is where the battery and the wireless charging sit. Yes, you will touch the camera, but that is n

The Apple Airpods are my most used headset. They fit my ears, they work well, they sound reasonably nice, they are easy to carry and charge. And when you wear them, you look like a complete idiot. And there are things that they cannot play well. When I need to be alone with myself, when I want to blast my ears, I need something more substantial. Enter the Marshall Monitor BT, an over-the-ear-headset with Bluetooth connection to my iPhone and a cable for everything else. They fit my head a

BlackBerry stumbles over April security fix
Fri, Apr 21st 2017 9:12a   Volker Weber
DTEK50 came again first with the April 5 fix and then there was radio silence. Now we learned that BlackBerry had difficulties integrating all the individual patches. But they are handling it differently from the DTEK50 delay in December/January. This time they released the (partial) April 1 fix to PRIV (and DTEK60?). It only weights in at about 20 MB taking the build to AAK689. I wonder how fast they can recover for the May patch which is due in two weeks.

IBM's revenue down for 20 consecutive quarters
Wed, Apr 19th 2017 6:20a   Volker Weber
In October 2011 Ginni Rometty assumed the role of president and CEO of IBM. A year later she took on the added role of chairman of IBM. She is also part of a White House business-advisory council under the Trump Administration. Five years seems to be quite a long time to right this ship. Whatever she is doing, it isn't working.

Samsung Galaxy S8 :: First impressions
Tue, Apr 18th 2017 4:30p   Volker Weber
When you unpack the S8, you will see the best Android phone on the market. Design, performance, display, cameras, everything is top-notch and you will not find any other device from any vendor that can hold a candle to this phone, and that includes Apple. It's beautiful, the display wraps around the sides and almost covers the complete front. And then Samsung ruins it all with their software. Android Nougat 7.0 is already outdated, Touchwhiz is now called Samsung Experience, and when you get
