  • The Essential phone that’s not that essential
    by John Brandon on August 18, 2017 at 9:43 pm

    Perhaps one of the most poorly named products in recent memory, the new Essential phone arrives just in time to make us wonder why it even exists.Using a “modular” design, the idea is to add pieces like a 360-degree camera or maybe some sort of connected home gadget to the smartphone, which runs a stock version of Android. It also uses a slick black enclosure, something that might make you think of a recent Blackberry model. And, the screen runs all the way to the edge. Hmm.Here’s my problem with it. While the modular design seems novel (Motorola does the same thing) and I’m impressed that any company would even try to go up against Apple and Samsung, there’s already some signs that this will be an uphill climb.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]

  • BrandPost: The Biggest Access Security Challenges and How to Address Them
    by Brand Post on August 18, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    As companies’ global partner ecosystems expand, remote suppliers, contractors and other external parties are just as likely to require access to some key enterprise applications as are full-time staffers working from branch locations, home offices or the field.With the lines continuing to blur between who is inside the enterprise and who’s outside it, and control over end points diminishing, the challenge for IT to deliver secure access to applications that reside behind firewalls and across multiple private and public clouds grows larger.  Here are some of the application access security dilemmas your own IT team may confront, especially when relying on traditional access approaches:To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]

  • Beginner's guide to R: Syntax quirks you'll want to know
    by Sharon Machlis on August 18, 2017 at 6:52 pm

  • Beginner's guide to R: Painless data visualization
    by Sharon Machlis on August 18, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    One of the most appealing things about R is its ability to create data visualizations with just a couple of lines of code.For example, it takes just one line of code -- and a short one at that -- to plot two variables in a scatterplot. Let's use as an example the mtcars data set installed with R by default. To plot the engine displacement column disp on the x axis and mpg on y:plot(mtcars$disp, mtcars$mpg)Default scatterplot in R.You really can't get much easier than that.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]

    We may be living in the future, but sending large files over the web remains…complicated.

  • Beginner's guide to R: Easy ways to do basic data analysis
    by Sharon Machlis on August 18, 2017 at 4:49 pm

    So you've read your data into an R object. Now what?Examine your data object Before you start analyzing, you might want to take a look at your data object's structure and a few row entries. If it's a 2-dimensional table of data stored in an R data frame object with rows and columns -- one of the more common structures you're likely to encounter -- here are some ideas. Many of these also work on 1-dimensional vectors as well.Many of the commands below assume that your data are stored in a variable called mydata (and not that mydata is somehow part of these functions' names).[This story is part of Computerworld's "Beginner's guide to R."

  • Beginner's guide to R: Introduction
    by Sharon Machlis on August 18, 2017 at 4:45 pm

    R is hot. Whether measured by more than 10,000 add-on packages, the 95,000+ members of LinkedIn's R group or the  more than 400 R Meetup groups currently in existence, there can be little doubt that interest in the R statistics language, especially for data analysis, is soaring.Why R? It's free, open source, powerful and highly extensible.

    Once you've installed and configured R to your liking, it's time to start using it to work with data. Yes, you can type your data directly into R's interactive console. But for any kind of serious work, you're a lot more likely to already have data in a file somewhere, either locally or on the Web.

    The PCI Express standard is one of the staples of modern computing, with a slot on more or less every desktop computer made in the last decade. But the nature of the connection is somewhat nebulous: on a new PC, you might see a half-dozen ports in three or four different sizes, all labelled “PCIE” or PCI-E.” So why the confusion, and which ones can you actually use?

  • Looking at a 1TB Surface Pro 2017? Make sure you know what you’re getting
    by Woody Leonhard on August 18, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    If you buy a top-of-the-line, 1TB computer, you might expect to get 1TB of storage. Yes? But if you shell out $2,700 for a 1TB Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 (or a princely $2,960 if you want a keyboard and pen), you actually get two 512GB SSD drives. And therein lies a problem. Two of them, actually.Microsoft’s ordering site offers a 1TB option for the Surface Pro 2017 with an i7 processor, but it doesn’t warn you that the “1TB” storage ships, in fact, as two separate 512GB SSDs, configured to appear as if they were one single 1TB SSD. In the normal course of events, that might be an inconsequential oversight, but several customers are finding it highly problematic.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]

  • iCloud security: How (and why) to enable two-factor authentication
    by Michael deAgonia on August 18, 2017 at 10:11 am

    Given that so many of the details of our digital lives are either with us (on our smartphones) or easily accessible (via the web), you should be doing everything you can to protect that information and data. On iPhones and iPads, data is largely kept in a vault, sealed behind strong encryption and (hopefully) a strong password. Even if the device is lost or stolen, chances are good that encryption will keep data safe. (That vault is secure enough to frustrate even the FBI.)Although iOS devices are designed and built to be secure, data is also stored and accessible online. With security breaches occurring routinely, your data is vulnerable to anyone in the world with an internet connection and a halfway decent browser. If a breach occurs and thieves gain access to your email and password, they can easily reset any account linked to that email, change the password, and lock you out of your own data.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]

    It's a few decades back when this college student pilot fish lands a part-time IT job at a research hospital, where part of his job is helping out doctors who have -- surprise! -- research projects."One doctor had received a grant and developed a statistical database for childhood leukemia," says fish. "She had a grad student program it in an early PC relational database, but he left at some point."Her database sat unused because she didn't have anyone technically savvy enough to reproduce his work."Fish takes a look, and it turns out the grad student was doing everything with the database manually, including running reports.

  • Find My Device: How Android's security service can manage your missing phone
    by JR Raphael on August 17, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Losing your phone is one of the most stressful predicaments of modern-day life. We've all been there: You pat your pocket, swiftly scan every surface in sight — then suddenly feel your heart drop at the realization that your Android device and all of its contents are no longer in your control.There's certainly no scenario in which losing your phone is a good thing.

It'll show you the device's exact location on an interactive map and give you tools to remotely ring it, lock it or wipe it entirely and send all of its data to the digital beyond.To read this article in full or to leave a […]

But as of early Thursday morning, U.S. time, nobody’s seen it. There may be a good reason why. Or maybe not.

  • New Windows 10 Pro edition reveals Microsoft's inconsistency

    Microsoft last week added another edition to its Windows 10 portfolio, introducing a variant of Windows 10 Pro aimed at high-end desktops, often tagged as workstations."Windows 10 Pro [for Workstations is] designed to meet the needs of our advanced users deploying their workstation PCs in demanding and mission-critical scenarios," Klaus Diaconu, a manager in Microsoft's Windows and devices group, wrote in a post to a company blog.One analyst said the new Windows 10 would attract some customers, but called it "a very niche product." And he wondered why Microsoft is adding another SKU (stock-keeping unit) to the line when it's harped on the need to drive customers off Windows 7, even Windows 8.1, so that everyone is on 10.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]

    by Brand Post on August 16, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    The push for enterprises to be more agile, flexible, and fast—a.k.a. Digital Transformation—is driving IT resources out of legacy environments and into the cloud.Business today depends upon a more flexible, remote and mobile workforce, and that workforce needs secure, reliable, and fast access to those resources and applications that live in the cloud.But the transformation to an inside-out enterprise—where applications, data and users increasingly live beyond a company’s confines—imposes some challenges along with the benefits it brings.At the top of those issues: security. IT remains responsible for the security, visibility, and performance of applications and users that now sit outside the business’ traditional zone of control. Three-quarters of respondents [1] to a recent IDC survey say that the ability to provide secure remote application access is a priority.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click her […]
