    Those Darn Bad Guys on Social Media… (6/27/20 Part 2)

    Those Darn Bad Guys on Social Media… (6/27/20 Part 2)

    The baddies are really, really pains in the keister. Hijacking Social Media We talk about it today, whether we like it or not, because it is an election year. Additionally, social media seems to be quite divisive, doesn’t it? Its not an accident! https://www.brainpickings.org/2014/01/03/baloney-detection-kit-carl-sagan/ https://www.bbc.com/news/av/business-38919403/how-do-fake-news-sites-make-money https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2016/11/18/this-is-how-the-internets-fake-news-writers-make-money/ https://www.snopes.com/news/2020/06/24/how-fake-accounts-constantly-manipulate-what-you-see-on-social-media/ https://www.mcafee.com/blogs/consumer/family-safety/spot-fake-facebook-account/ https://www.wikihow.com/Reveal-a-Fake-Facebook-Account https://opendorse.com/blog/how-to-spot-fake-social-media-followers/

    Intel’s Lakefield: Setting the pace for future laptops and tablets? (6/13/20 Part 1)

    Intel’s Lakefield: Setting the pace for future laptops and tablets? (6/13/20 Part 1)

    Lakefield is the fruit of years of work from Intel, if not the industry at a whole. Lakefield Processors! We’ll be seeing a few things with it this year, but it should make for an interesting 2021! Given the scope of this, we’re giving you OUR notes for the show for lots of further reading! https://www.anandtech.com/show/15841/intel-discloses-lakefield-cpus-specifications-64-execution-units-up-to-30-ghz-7-w  https://www.neowin.net/news/intel-details-its-new-lakefield-processors-for-dual-screen-and-foldable-pcs  Lakefield is meant for super light laptops, folding PCs, etc. Preferably the “always on,” cellular connected type of thing. These are premium designs with a focus on portability, long battery life, and will command a premium price we’re sure.  Samsung Galaxy S runs Windows 10. Current version uses a Qualcomm ARM chip, but the next version will run Lakefield, enabling FULL Windows, weighing just over 2lbs, and a 13.3” screen. https://www.anandtech.com/show/15819/samsung-unveils-intel-galaxy-book-s-intels-lakefield-inbound  Lenovo has a folding laptop PC (single screen!) that can include a wireless keyboard that sits on top like a traditional laptop OR separately so you can use the whole screen area. https://www.anandtech.com/show/15280/lenovos-thinkpad-x1-fold-combining-foldable-displays-5g-and-lakefield-into-a-laptop  Microsoft’s Surface Book Neo is a foldable PC, with two screens. Its more like an actual book (maybe more durable than Lenovo’s Thinkpad will be?). https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/devices/surface-neo  What’s so cool?  Big/Little. This refers to Lakefield having 4 little cores (Atom Tremont) and 1 big core (Sunny Cove). The Atoms cores are for light work, but the Sunny Cove kicks in if need be. One theory for power efficiency is that finishing a job faster is better than taking a long time, so the power management versus performance must be part of the mentality.  ARM has been ...

    Are you Authentic(ated)? (6/13/20 Part 2)

    Are you Authentic(ated)? (6/13/20 Part 2)

    2FA ought be a part of your digital life. Authenticate This! Yes, it is annoying. But, its not as annoying as someone accessing your account after stealing, hacking, or figuring out your login! Many sites and services offer 2FA via text message, but unfortunately that is the weakest form of it.  https://www.cnet.com/how-to/do-you-use-sms-for-two-factor-authentication-heres-why-you-shouldnt/  https://www.protectimus.com/blog/sms-authentication/  So, tell me about some of them…  Much like sports teams, the overall landscape does change from year to year, so what’s “best” this year might not be next year. This is a good thing, though.  https://gizmodo.com/the-best-authenticator-apps-for-protecting-your-account-1840711013  https://www.pcworld.com/article/3225913/what-is-two-factor-authentication-and-which-2fa-apps-are-best.html
