Google Drive apps are loved for their simplicity and ease of use, but don't let that fool you. There's a whole lot of power locked up in these web apps. And while we'd never put the suite on a par with Microsoft Office, there are some impressive features in Docs, Sheets, and Slides that you've likely overlooked.
Microsoft has begun clamping down on sham Windows Store apps that try to dupe users into paying for free software, the company announced Wednesday.
Microsoft today re-released a security update that was pulled two weeks ago after users packed the company's support discussion forum with reports of crippled computers.
While SAP has made a big push into mobile software and device management with the acquisition of Sybase and a series of apps, it hasn't made overt moves into the devices market. But this could change down the road, judging from a recently published patent application submitted by SAP.
So-called deceptive "crap apps" have always plagued the Windows Store. But now, Microsoft appears to be finally ready to do something about them.
In June, Rhapsody and T-Mobile announced Rhapsody unRadio, a subscription streaming music service. This isn't the first time we've seen such an arrangement. Mobile carriers and music streaming services are increasingly getting together in this one-hand-washes-the-other kind of way (as evidenced by the relationships between AT&T and Beats Music and Sprint and Spotify). Getting free or less-expensive music streaming is a perk that might attract customers to a particular carrier, and pre-packaging the services with specific data plans increases the services' visibility.
IBM announced late Wednesday that it's making its artificially intelligent computer system, Watson, available to researchers as a cloud service.
You've got a Mac, an iPhone, maybe an iPad or two in your household, and you have a problem. Maybe one of them's got a cracked screen, and you want to find out if it's still under warranty (and what that warranty covers). Maybe one of them won't start up, and you want to find out what to do. Maybe you just have a question that requires an Apple expert. Turns out you can find out all that and more in one place--a place that a lot of Apple users have never heard of.
Links are, in many ways, the lifeblood of the Internet. They are a good thing but not when they bait you into thinking you're getting something you're not. Links, and more specifically clicking on them, may make the Internet go round, but when that stream becomes a never-ending cycle of buffoonery, scheming and outright lies on sites like Facebook it can be pretty unbearable.
A labor protection group is accusing one of Samsung's suppliers in China of hiring over 10 underage workers to build company components. But the Korean electronics giant was quick to dismiss the allegations, and said it had no "child workers" at the facility.
