Google+ is now a core app under Google Apps!

"Starting today Google+ joins Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar and more as a core Apps for Work service. That means Google+ will now be included in existing Google Apps agreements for most customers."

Need to do something about this battery life. I'm on my 2nd battery today, getting only 1:28 screen on as of writing.

The G4 didn't have decent battery to begin with, but this isn't sustainable.

(Factory reset about a month ago, currently using less than half the amount of normally installed apps).

Exactly. If you were on Nougat, I was going to suggest possibly downgrading.

Bump for the morning folks!
 
My other half is currently working on her Bachelors and has chosen to focus on the IT repair industry for a module. As part of this, she's looking for the public to take a short survey regarding device repair here:

If you're a consumer of IT goods, be that computers, phones, or anything in between, your feedback will be invaluable.

Please share :)

NB: I've been hands-off with this to avoid skewing anything in one direction or another, but I'm happy to put any questions to her and quote her response.

This piqued my interest, I'm super curious about the touchpad keyboard.

So I've ordered one!

The hardware on this is identical for both Android and Windows, so one of the first things I'll likely be attempting is to run both Windows and Ubuntu.
Explore YOGA Book, a groundbreaking 2-in-1 productivity tablet that gives you a new way to take and record notes an amazing drawing experience. It's Halo keyboard is like nothing that's come before it, and it's exceptionally thin and light.

Wow.
 
Somebody has a very big Botnet.

KrebsOnSecurity was hit with 665gbps DDOS, following Brian Krebs breaking the story on vDOS. The alarming thing is analysis shows the attack was pure SYN, POST and GET, plus oddly GRE. Not an amplification attack. If someone has a Botnet that big they could do a lot of damage. 
On Tuesday evening, KrebsOnSecurity.com was the target of an extremely large and unusual distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack designed to knock the site offline. The attack did not succeed thanks to the hard work of the engineers at Akamai, the company that protects my site from such ...

I had a Dot for a couple of weeks before I sold it to a coworker. The main reason I wanted to use it was to voice control podcasts and it did not work well at all for that.

I upgraded the SSDs in my Elitebook this week from two Samsung 240GB's to a couple of Kingston Hyper X Fury 480GB's.

Previously running Windows across both SSDs in a RAID0 configuration I attempted to do the same again with the new drives, though no matter how many versions of the Intel RAID driver I attempted to load (including the one I'd used on the previous installation) it wasn't allowing me to use the RAID volume as an installation location.

Ubuntu didn't have this issue and installed without a sweat, so now it's running Linux again with a Windows VM for the two applications I needed Windows for.

Thank you Linux, happy 25 years.

It is indeed, unfortunately G+ is where I hang my hat and have the farthest reach - all data helps though!

Story
Tagline
Mobile, Web & Information Technologist.
Introduction
I'm a systems and server engineer, disaster recovery administrator, enterprise mobility management lead, compliance executive, web app admin, I run a tech blog over on bayton.org and do a bit of computer work and freelance writing in my free time.

I invest a lot of my time in Android, the web and emerging technologies and regularly openly discuss the above and anything else remotely tech.

I'm highly opinionated and have been known to express them over various topics.

I enjoy helping others and very rarely turn down a request, question or plea for assistance. Feel free to ask, I find it helps me stay on top of technologies and aids my troubleshooting skills over various technologies I may not necessarily encounter any other way.

Oh, and I also play the Tuba. I'm pretty good too. Oom-pah, baby.

If you've made it this far, clearly the next logical step would be to pop me in one of your circles. If you engage on my posts, I'll return the favour.

See you around.
