You probably know that #Windows10 starts shipping tomorrow. This means that at some point very soon, perhaps today, you need to start thinking about your upgrade plans if you haven't already. As much as you may like to, you can't just ignore it, so here are some ideas as to how you may want to approach your Windows 10 planning. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/its-time-for-it-managers-to-prepare-a-windows-10-upgrade-plan.html

The #FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler says he is recommending approval of the merger between AT&T and DirecTV. This has some big implications for broadband deployment, but perhaps even bigger implications for T-Mobile and Dish in their merger. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/fcc-chief-recommends-approval-of-att-49-billion-buyout-of-directv.html

When #TMobile CEO John Legere announced "Mobile without Borders" which started yesterday, my first thought was of my last call with legendary science fiction author and futurist Arthur C, Clarke, who predicted that one day all phone calls worldwide would be free. T-Mobile has taken the first steps to realizing that vision. http://www.eweek.com/mobile/mobile-carriers-start-fulfilling-clarkes-vision-of-free-global-calls.html

Assume you had to pay a toll charge when you flush your toilets. Right now
you have free flushing.

zd#Microsoft is rolling out the hype machine in time for the Windows 10 launch. Will your business upgrade immediately? Will you wait? Will your computers even run #Windows10? You need to find out in a test situation at least, but what do you do if you can't use Windows 10, either because your computers can't run it, or because your software won't work? You need to decide that as well. http://www.eweek.com/pc-hardware/microsoft-starts-singing-the-windows-10-siren-song.html

#Microsoft says it's not dumping Windows Phone, but it sure seems to be getting close as it lays off nearly everyone hired from Nokia, and takes a charge for everything it spent buying the company. While the company says it will still sell phones, it seems like Microsoft has finally bowed to the inevitable, and is kissing all but a few parts of its phone lines goodbye. http://www.eweek.com/it-management/why-microsoft-aims-to-cut-back-its-smartphone-business.html

The big question about #MasterCard's idea to use a selfie as a form of identification verification looks good at first glance, but can it be made secure enough? I can already think of a couple of ways it might be hacked, unless the company thinks of ways to prevent those. Tests may start this fall. We'll see what happens then. http://www.eweek.com/security/mastercards-plans-for-facial-recognition-raise-questions.html

A new #phishing scam targets CEO, CFO and other senior executives using very effective, socially engineered emails that show a lot of research. The emails direct company accounting departments to send wire transfers of large amounts of money for reasons that are confidential and urgent. The scam has been highly effective and has taken millions of dollars from US companies. This is real, the FBI and Secret Service are investigating. We have details here: http://www.eweek.com/security/advanced-phishing-scam-targets-ceos-cfos-for-phony-cash-transfers.html

The folks at #FiatChrysler have some serious recall problems, some of which were from cars that were built long before Fiat bought the company. But one recall involves some very scary possibilities. Time to check your car. http://www.eweek.com/security/fiat-chrysler-auto-recall-highlights-rising-fears-about-iot-hacking.html

Users of the #AshleyMadison adult dating site have a lot more to worry about than their credit card numbers and some revealing photos. Think about the Big Data implications if the folks who breached OPM and some other personnel databases also get access to everything on Ashley Madison. This could become a serious problem for some organiations when you consider the number of people involved. http://www.eweek.com/security/ashley-madison-dating-site-members-face-multiple-security-threats.html
