So, you're ready to leave your iPhone for greener pastures '- specifically, the bright green hue of Google's Android ecosystem.
It's a major move, to be sure, but it doesn't have to be daunting. Beneath the surface-level differences, Android and iOS actually have a lot in common '- and with the right steps, you can switch from an iPhone to an Android device without losing anything significant (including your sanity).
Make your way through this easy-to-follow guide, and you'll be happily settled in your new high-tech home in no time.
All-in-one iOS-to-Android switching tools
First things first: Some Android devices, like Samsung's Galaxy phones and Google's Pixel products, ship with their own all-in-one iPhone-to-Android switching systems. These systems may include special software and possibly even physical cables for moving a bunch of data from your iPhone to your new Android device in one fell swoop. If your Android phone offers such a service, it's a smart place to start.
Office 365 subscribers always have the latest version of Microsoft Office '- currently Office 2016. They also get more frequent software updates than those who have purchased Office 2016 without a subscription, which means subscribers have access to the latest features, security patches and bug fixes. But it can be hard to keep track of the changes in each update and know when they'-re available. We'-re doing this for you, so you don'-t have to.
Following are key updates to Office 365 for Windows since Office 2016 was released in September 2015 '- all the 2017 updates and the most important ones from 2016 and late 2015, with the latest releases shown first. We'-ll add info about new updates as they'-re rolled out.
You've probably heard the news by now: Google is killing off Inbox, its experimental email app that's lived alongside Gmail for the past four years. The service is set to shut down for good this coming March.
When Inbox was announced in October of 2014, Google described it as something "years in the making" '- a "completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters." The engineers behind it said it was "designed for the problems we're going to see in the next 10 years."
How a business structures itself internally can have a huge impact on workflow and culture'-both across individual teams and the company as a whole.
Companies need to be fast, focused, and adaptable to remain competitive in a world where customers'- needs are constantly changing. A wide variety of stakeholders have to work together across an organization to align the product or service with customer needs and company goals.
A new model of work must be adopted to meet this challenge'-and with that challenge comes a major opportunity for IT leaders to demonstrate business leadership far and wide across their organizations.
Agile has been a prominent development practice for the past 15 years in technology, but the basic tenets of agile can be a cross-company organizing principle to help teams in any function be more efficient and, well, agile. According to Salesforce'-s second annual '-'State of IT'-" report, 75 percent of tech leaders say IT is currently in the midst of the biggest historical shift of its role, becoming more deeply involved in the business and playing a critical role in processes. Since technology leaders already have vast expertise with agile, they'-re well positioned to be change agents for forward-thinking companies by encouraging widespread adoption of the philosophy.
I believe the near-term future will largely be defined by wearable devices, but there'-s no denying the class started ugly.
First, we had the incredibly foolish Google effort called Glass. Then Apple decided to toss out the brilliant product, marketing and naming strategies that resulted in the iPod, iPhone and iPad and created the Apple Watch. While still powerful enough to set an industry trend, the move almost terminally destroyed what we now consider to be the smartwatch market.
You see, with the iPod, iPhone and iPad Apple defined the products themselves. But when you call something by a name that'-s already defined '-" like '-'watch'-" '-" that name then defines the product. But the Apple Watch wasn'-t a '-'watch'-" '-" it was more of a wearable iPod."
A staggering amount of digitally-focused companies launch every year, and none of these companies can operate without a dedicated team of IT professionals. Numerous avenues have opened for aspiring IT professionals seeking professional certifications. For example, this Ultimate IT Certification Training Bundle features prep courses for some of the most popular IT certifications on the market. You can find it here for $39.
Apple Watch is no longer a rich boy'-s toy or an accessory for Kool Aid-drinking hipsters '- it'-s a device you'-ll want to give to people you love because you want to protect them. This new status means it has reached a significant inflection point, becoming an essential tool for better healthcare.
What has Apple done here?
Among a raft of improvements to the product (many of which had been predicted), Apple introduced critical heart- and health-related features for Apple Watch Series 4:
Slack has unveiled new features aimed at attracting a wider audience of enterprise customers, including enhanced security, compliance and admin controls.
The company has made a concerted effort to court large businesses since the launch of its Enterprise Grid product last year. And during its second annual Frontiers event in San Francisco last week, Slack - which recently raised $427 million in new funding - highlighted several " enterprise-focused announcements, including the acquisition of Missions.ai, its new partnership with Atlassian, and a glimpse of its feature roadmap.
This pilot fish and his wife are planning a long-overdue vacation to an all-inclusive resort -- one of those places where you don't have to worry about things like meals or tipping.
"I log onto the resort's website in order to make some reservations ahead of our arrival," fish says, "and am presented with the standard registration page."
He enters his information on the page, which also asks "for security reasons" that he set up a password.
It's not until after he has clicked "OK" that fish looks at the icon in his web browser and realizes the page isn't encrypted. He does a quick browse of the source code for the page, and finds that there's no SSL anywhere securing the data he's just typed in.
Whether your business team is designing a next-gen widget or developing an online campaign, you need a place to get together, brainstorm and map out a strategy. In years past, a dry-erase whiteboard was typically where such ideas were recorded, with some obvious drawbacks. For starters, somebody had to capture all those great ideas from the whiteboard before it got erased. Worse, remote meeting attendees couldn'-t see the on-board action.
I wrote earlier on some of the enterprise implications of Apple'-s 2018 iPhone and Apple Watch range. Here are a few more insights on the new range as Apple closes in on selling its two billionth iOS device.
Analyst Patrick Moorhead believes the iPhone XR will be the biggest-selling smartphone over the next year. In part, this is because it offers the same powerful chip, can do portrait shots and other imaging tasks, and comes in a range of cool colors at a more affordable price.
CES 2018 had more than its fair share of wacky items and compelling gadgets, but one of the biggest trends to emerge, once again, from the popular tech expo was voice-enabled devices. And, of course, it was all about Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
At CES 2018, Ford announced it is working with a city in which it will operate its self-driving cars. The automaker wouldn't identify the city but did say how autonomous vehicles can change the way people live.
Intel is betting that Volocopter 2X will be one of the first passenger-carrying drones to operate in the U.S. A prototype of the pilotless two-seat helicopter-like drone was shown off at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
AMD CEO Lisa Su told Yahoo Finance that the Austin, Texas-based computer and graphics chip company is quickly working to resolve and address a recently-discovered security flaw that affects AMD computer chips.
It's hard to figure out which of the connected household devices on display at CES 2018 is worth buying, but it's even more difficult to know if they are secure from hackers. A security expert visits exhibits and tries to help.
You may soon get to say a lot more on Twitter. The social media giant announced it is testing a longer character limit. The change will extend the current 140 characters to 280 for all languages except Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Users won'-t see this change right away, though. Only a small percentage will be testing it at first, and according to the company, it is just a test and there is no guarantee this change will be available to everyone.
