Microsoft #Outlook 2016 for Mac always throws a security error when connecting to an Exchange server. What does Microsoft suggest as a workaround? Disable SSL. Not only does that not solve the issue, it's an unwise choice to make. Major #fail.

#Wired Magazine reports that FCC Chair Tom Wheeler has proposal to help disadvantaged families afford broadband Internet service. Since a high-speed connection is important for participating in the economy, I think this makes good sense.

The head of the FCC wants to subsidize broadband access for low-income families. The catch? The subsidy is just $9.25 per month---far less than most broadband plans.

The Large Hadron Collider restarted today after a 2-year shutdown for a major upgrade. The power is now 60% higher, luminosity is 10x higher. Having found the Higgs boson, the search is on for new particles, including dark matter.

Physicists hope a revamped Large Hadron Collider will discover new particles and forces that could help explain dark matter and other mysteries of the universe.

Do you have a #Dropbox account and want somebody without one to upload a file to you? Now you can. When you log in, click File Requests on the left. The click the large, blue Create File Request button, enter the person's e-mail address, what you're requesting and which folder it should go into.

A welcome feature in Microsoft #Outlook 2016 (currently in public beta) is that when you want to attach a file to an e-mail message, appointment item or other screen, the Attach File icon has a list of recent files, so you can attach one, again:

An update coming to Google #Chrome will let you disable auto-play of #Flash videos. Besides being less annoying, this will be great for laptop battery life.

Google Chrome is an incredibly power-hungry browser. A new update may fix that.

Are you using the new Bookly font in the Amazon #Kindle? The app automatically loaded it on my #iPhone yesterday (with permission). It looks similar to Bookman, and I'm not sure if I like it or not.

Not just a bakery! The baked goods are some of the best you'll find, but Baker's Treat has excellent breakfast and lunch items, too, including vegetarian fare. I've never had a meal there I didn't like and often come for takeout. In the nice weather, I enjoy sitting outside next to the boxed garden, where they grow some of their own produce.
