Follow the link and you get to the July security bulletin:

BlackBerry has released a security update to address multiple vulnerabilities in BlackBerry powered by Android smartphones. We recommend users update to the latest available software build.

When BlackBerry says "release" it does not mean they also deliver. DTEK50 and DTEK60 received no update in all of June and are wating for the latest and greatest in July. PRIV received a 14 MB small update bringing the patch level to July 1 (not the full patch July 5). KEYone, which BlackBerry Mobile takes responsibility for is also waiting for AAM481 which is available in some regions but not here. That should take the phone to July 05.

To add some perspective, the Huawei P10 recently received an update, taking it to May 5, the same level as the DTEKs are sitting on.

Sounds good in theory

Bad streaming and good streaming to #Sonos
Sun, Jul 23rd 2017 12:11p   Volker Weber
When Apple started AirPlay, it would stream everything three times across the network. From your library or music service through your access point to the app on your device, then back to the access point, then to your speaker. When you stream to a Bluetooth connected speaker, you are also streaming everything to your app and then via Bluetooth to the speaker. That's bad streaming. What Spotify Connect does is good streaming. You start streaming to your app, but then you tell it to cast

Sonos, please update your ancient network stack
Fri, Jul 21st 2017 12:37p   Volker Weber
We love that Sonos keeps its old gear updated and functional. That is pretty much unheard of in this industry. However, there is one big omission. You really need to work on your network stack. Two problems: Every recent piece of malware used SMBv1 as its attack vector. If you disable it Sonos is unable to find its music libary anymore. No support for SMBv2 or SMBv3. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Your STP implementation is ancient. If you add Sonos to a network with smart components that us

IBM Dumps Remote Work, Blows Off Its Productivity Kneecap
Thu, Jul 20th 2017 4:32p   Volker Weber
With a focus on US policy: IBM has destroyed a remote work policy that brought them provable gains, because a fashion exec says it’ll save the entire company. The IBM decision-makers are either voluntarily ignorant, or they think they’re above the market. 20 straight quarters of declining revenue says they are wrong. Make that 21. More >

Drei Android-Smartphones

Die Welt ist ein bisschen einfacher geworden für mich. Früher hatte ich ein halbes Dutzend verschiedene Smartphone-Betriebssysteme im Auge zu behalten. Heute sind es nur noch zwei. Damit ich nicht nur das iPhone kenne, benutze ich täglich mehrere Stunden auch ein Android-Gerät. Bisher waren das zwei: BlackBerry KEYone und Huawei P10. Jetzt ist mit dem Moto Z2 Play ein drittes dazu gekommen. Bemerkenswert beim Moto: wenn man es nur im Standby rumliegt, dann sag

Verkehrte Welt :: Lenovo Soft Keyboard vs BlackBerry Hard Keyboard
Wed, Jul 19th 2017 7:12a   Volker Weber
Laptops haben echte Tastaturen, Smartphones virtuelle auf dem Bildschirm, so die Regel. Bei diesen beiden Geräten ist es umgekehrt: Lenovo Yoga Book und BlackBerry KEYone. Ich mag beide. Jetzt bin ich wild entschlossen, auf dem Halo Keyboard des Yoga Book schreiben zu lernen. Warum? Weil es schwierig ist. Aber ich habe gelernt, dass man auf einem BlackBerry Keyboard nicht schneller ist als auf einer iPhone-Tastatur. Und was dort geht, sollte auch auf dem Halo möglich sein. Ich

Moto Z2 Play :: Let's talk about the phone
Mon, Jul 17th 2017 7:41a   Volker Weber
Three most useless things in an aviation emergency: Fuel on the GroundRunway behind youSky above youWhen I looked at all the Z2 Play reviews I found a common theme: Moto dared to make the device thinner and the battery smaller. And I was reminded of the old adage above. What does it help you if you have 30% battery left when you are about to charge your phone anyway? What difference does it make that a phone runs 36 instead of 30 hours? I think the Z2 Play is much nicer than the Z Play. Th

Moto Z2 Play :: A modular smartphone
Sat, Jul 15th 2017 8:24a   Volker Weber
Yesterday, I had total gadget overload. Moto sent a big box with the brand new Moto Z2 play and alll these Moto Mods. And here is the good news. This is a 2017 smartphone and mostly 2016 Moto Mods. I like backwards compatibility. I was very sceptical when Moto announced the Moto Z series last year. They had three models: the high end Z, the midrange Z Play and the Verizon exclusive Z Force. They were the top line Moto phones and shared the Moto Mod design. Moto Mods snap to the back of the ph
