Darren, Jesse and Stuart return with the seventh episode of WTF Tech show. We discuss the Wanna Cry attack, IBM’s new work location strategy. We also touch on the Jive acquisition and the new Surface Pro. Oh, and Tech Nostalgia. (Recorded Wednesday 24th May 2017).

For starters, sorry about the audio quality (particularly Stuart’s track). We were hit by a Chrome bug that incorrectly detects the audio sample rate. We did investigate re-recording the episode, but with vacations imminent, felt it was better to get it out ASAP. We’ve cleaned it up as best we can, but you’ll still hear the occasional dropout and artefact. Sorry about that!

Show notes:

Chitchat

WannaCry attack

IBM’s work from home/office colocation strategy

Jive acquired by ESW Capital/Aurea

Microsoft’s new Surface laptop

  • Microsoft’s announcement
  • Microsoft going head to head with Apple on vertically integrated systems
    • Very normal laptop design, not convertible tablet/laptop
    • Material covering is a bit weird?
      • “Surface Laptop provides the perfect blend of texture, subtle details, and clean, elegant lines — plus the luxurious touch of our Signature Alcantara® material-covered keyboard.”
  • What will this do to Microsoft OEMs?

Cutting the Cord

Tips

  • Jesse: White PC cases! It turns out they’re very “Space Odyssey”-esque… 
  • Darren: New TV! LG Electronics 65UH8500 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
  • Stuart:

    • Used this years ago, and have just returned, discovering it has improved a lot over the years… Dlvr.it. Now supports RSS as output, meaning it can aggregate RSS feeds, a la Yahoo Pipes… Great for sharing own blog posts on social media as well as curating content from elsewhere.
    • A great plugin for WordPress. Redirection. Allows any URL to be redirected, and can be managed manually or via CSV upload, so is a great way to help with migrating sites. E.g. from DominoBlog to WordPress.

The post Welcome to WTF Tech! appeared first on WTF Tech.

]]>

You know when your enterprise tech vendor makes a move that forces you to involuntarily exclaim ‘what the f*** ?!?‘ (or words to that effect).

Perhaps announcing a new product that will cannibalise the old one, or making a huge acquisition that rapidly turns to dust, or… Well, you get the picture! We’ve all been there.

In fact, Darren, Jesse and I have been there a little too often over the years. So we’re getting together on a semi-regular basis to review the latest industry news through the lens of our aggregate 50+ years of enterprise tech experience. Whilst we’re determined to cover the news in an independent and fair manner, given our personalities, hard-earned battle scars and experience (as admin, developer and strategist respectively), we’ve no doubt a little snark will be revealed along the way. Above all, we aim to inform and entertain in equal measure…

This starts from our first episode, published today, where we discussed the big events and keynotes of the past couple of weeks (Google, IBM, Microsoft and Apple). From the Google Assistant to Watson Workspace, and from the Surface Studio to the Macbook Pro with Touch Bar, we ruminate on what these new products and services will mean for the confluence of consumer and enterprise tech.

WTF Tech is intended to be the start of a conversation, so we want your feedback and input. So please listen the first show and tell us what you think! You can comment on the episodes, reply or DM on Twitter or even leave a voicemail from our site (we may publish these in the show). Please do get in touch!

So if this sounds up your street, subscribe to WTF Tech in your favourite podcast app now.
