Sonos + Spotify + Alexa
Tue, Aug 30th 2016 11:49a   Volker Weber
Big announcement today from Sonos in New York City. Cutting to the chase, three things are happening: New Sonos update very shortly making it easier to control your speakers from the Sonos controller. Instead of managing the queue, you now default to playing directly whatever you select. Queue management takes a backseat but does not go away. Sonos joins the Spotify Connect ecosystem. You can control Sonos directly from your Spotify app, no matter where you are. Beta in October. Control your S

Furminator

Frau Brandlinger hat zwei Fellwechsel im Jahr. Der erste von Januar bis Juni, der zweite von Juli bis Dezember. Mit anderen Worten: sie haart wie Sau. Heute kam eine Überraschung von meiner Amazon-Wunschliste. Der Furminator. Das soll wohl an Fur und Terminator erinnern. Und wie man sieht, funktioniert der auch so. In zehn Minuten habe ich mehr Haare aus dem Fell geholt als sie in einer Woche in der Bude verteilt. Danke, Jonas!

IBM publishes a blog post naming Inhi Cho Suh as the author. It celebrates an IDC finding that positions IBM as the leading enterprise social software vendor. I can't help thinking that the community is waiting for a different blog post, addressing the Notes/Domino situation.

Office Lens on Windows 10
Mon, Aug 29th 2016 10:11a   Volker Weber
Microsoft has quietly published the Office Lens app for Windows 10. However, Windows Store tells me it is not supported on Surface. Let's hope this is just one of those Windows Store quirks.

Signal :: Private Messaging and Calling

If Vanity Fair starts chatting up Signal as a secure "Snowden-approved" channel, it may finally see a breakthrough. It's my third messenger next to iMessage and WhatsApp. More >

Nach bisherigen Informationen wurden 3 bisher unbekannte Schwachstellen in iOS entdeckt, die in Kombination nach Klick auf einen Link zu Schadsoftware Zugriff auf das iPhone ermöglichen.

How ad platforms learn your real social graph
Fri, Aug 26th 2016 4:44a   Volker Weber
Facebook has two messengers. Messenger works with your Facebook login and your "friends", WhatsApp with your phone number and your address book. The interesting information is not the directory but the traffic between those people. Whatsapp is so pervasive because you don't need to build your directory. It's already in your address book. Google, the older ad platform, has had many messengers, but eventually Hangouts persevered. It works with your Google ID. And Google failed to convince y

Do not hit "Agree" on WhatsApp

I know, we are all trained to just accept any changes in ToCs. But this time, don't. Instead, tap in the "Read more ..." at the bottom of the page. It will take you to another page, and there at the bottom is a switch. Toggle it from 1 to 0. It should not be green before you agree. Too late, you say? Already hit that Agree button? Follow the steps under Option 2.

That "App Modernization" story

I would like to ask you what you need for your Notes/Domino app development. Please work under these assumptions: Notes and Domino are not going anywhere. There is no big market push by IBM. There won't be major new releases. Notes will continue to run on Windows and Mac. Domino will continue to run on Windows and Linux. Domino will continue to be connected to Android and iOS. That is what I call "maintenance mode". So, what do you need in terms of development? Be smart. Don't ask for

From the lookout blog: Lookout’s analysis determined that the malware exploits three zero-day vulnerabilities, or Trident, in Apple iOS: CVE-2016-4655: Information leak in Kernel – A kernel base mapping vulnerability that leaks information to the attacker allowing him to calculate the kernel’s location in memory.
