"Imma hack your wireless #keyboard  because I want all them key strokes." I wonder if this is a real threat vector. #security  
Nothing beats wireless for convenience, but whenever you transmit important data through the air, there's a risk that someone could be nearby, ready to intercept the signals before they reach their destination. If this sounds familiar, it might be because we talked about this very thing earlier this year, when security firm Bastille ousted

I've been using a wired mechanical for some time now. I don't really see any point to wireless.

You gotta be better than this #Microsoft . User choice is key. #Windows10  doesn't need #Cortana  to function, so why the heavy hand?
Cortana, the voice-controlled personal digital assistant that helps you find things on your PC and the web, is getting a promotion from an on-call employee to full-time status. That's to stay you won't be able to turn Cortana off once Microsoft rolls out its Anniversary Update for Windows 10, which is scheduled to arrive on August 2, 2016. "With

+Xande van Anon Wait, Mr. White-Knight.. You trust google more than MS and Apple? How come? Your whole profile is full of shitpost no one cares about additional to that your profile is almost full public. It doesnt even need some intelligent hackers to dox you, but you are scared about some big companies "spy" on you? Linux brainwashed much? Hope you use AOSP without GAPPS on your android at least, otherwise... we all know how bad your logic is (But since this is the internet, you surely use CM/AOSP without GAPPS and F-Droid installed for some "trusted" apps, kek)

Anyone have any experience with Aerohive support? It seems getting in touch with them is next to impossible.

We managed to get it resolved. I also learned why we sell Ubiquiti products and not Aerohive.

I was looking in my room at this decoration of mine, then it got me thinking. Would a wall "mounted" PC work at all with the components screwed into the wall? If so, how well? (assuming lots of regular cleaning)

+Kirill Ivanov I've seen those builds before, I'd love to make a performance build in one just to see how good it would work.

#AMD 's #Zen  is reportedly just around the corner. It needs to be good.
We're getting so close to AMD's release of Zen that it almost feels like you can reach out and grab it, though obviously that's not the case, at least not yet. During a recent earnings call with investors, AMD boss Dr. Lisa Su stated that Zen would trickle out by the end of the year before shipping in any kind of real volume in the first quarter

#NVIDIA 's new #Pascal  based #TitanX  is looking beastly.
NVIDIA has historically taken a somewhat different approach when announcing its newest Titan-branded graphics cards, that differs from the measured, methodical launches of its more mainstream consumer products. Tonight’s announcement, however, takes the cake. We just received details from NVIDIA regarding an upcoming ultra-powerful, Pascal-based

The French are none too happy with #Microsoft  and #Windows10 , and they're demanding action.
We reported earlier on France's demands to Microsoft with regards to bolstering its Windows 10 OS to better protect user data, and ultimately, their privacy. The fact that a watchdog would target Microsoft for collecting too much data probably strikes no one as a surprise, as that very complaint has been one shared by many users since the

It's now or never... (Sung in my best Elvis). #Microsoft  is ending the #Windows10  upgrade party today. No more nag screens?
Time is quickly running out if you're planning to take Microsoft up on its offer to upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 10 for free. Yes, it's been a full year already since Windows 10 released to the public. But don't fret if procrastination's gotten the better of you, there's still several hours left to upgrade at no cost.

Microsoft Remote Desktop licensing error

Today everyone in my company got kicked out of their RDP session into our server, it displayed the below message. We have enough licenses and they're not expired. We just bought them a couple months ago.

Our IT department is looking into it, but can't figure out what's going on. The licenses are applied, active, and everything.

So I'm wondering if anyone here has any suggestions on what we could try? Without being able to remote in, my entire company is dead in the water. I have to have this fixed tonight.

The server is v2012.

Aside from licensing server there should an entry in the AD pointing to licensing server, this what I remembered.

I've been waiting for Google to integrate a speed test into search for a while now, and it's finally here! Bet the folks at Ookla are bummed!

Google is definitely my most valuable IT tool.

Does anyone else use OneDrive and Sharepoint sync? Thinking of moving to Dropbox as its so unreliable. We have an Office 365 subscription so I'm just loathed to pay further for another solution for our storage.

You can opt out - IF you chose to stop receiving Insider Previews after your computer has been updated to the latest Public version. Am anxiously waiting my Anniversary Update so I can do so.

My article was just published on Forbes. Let's put technology into perspective. Check it out, Enjoy & Please share.
Instead of letting technology drive a wedge in between your department and the rest of the company, find ways to overcome the knowledge gap.
