You are on the right track.

Success is earned, one step at a time. One of the most invaluable skills a person can have is being able to clearly express what they want. Sometimes the hardest part of finding success is gathering the courage to get started. As long as you’re learning, you’ll never really fail. 

The most successful people don’t look back to see who’s watching.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fail.”

—Confucius

Look for opportunities to lift others up along the way. Having the proper mindset, moving outside your comfort zone, developing and maintaining healthy relationships, and staying focused have been key drivers of success for thousands of years. 

Sweet success.

How Secure is Your System (Internet of Things)

Recently I read an article in PCMag about how secure is the Internet of Things? by Eric Griffith. Great article and kudos to him. This is a summary with my takeaway.

Let's be clear about the term "System" in this blog title. System could include anything in your house that is high-tech such as a microwave, toaster (yes, some of the more expensive ones qualify), TV, PC, tablet, smartphone (these last 3 obviously), car (definitely), and I won't go on, but you get the idea. A more definitive term and buzz-phrase is The Internet of Things.

It is now possible for hackers to hack into the above mentioned items you own. Yes, common household items are fair game. What used to be the realm of PCs has slowly transitioned to the aforementioned. So the bottom line is, how secure is it?

Alex Balan, Bitdefender's Chief Security Researcher at NSA says to look for a Bug Bounty program. Companies that subscribe are having specialized companies investigate their products for a potential hacker's exploit. Since they tell the company if there's a problem and how to fix it, if your product's company is listed, you're fairly safe, since the company is taking measures, including paying very large fees to uncover any unknown bugs.

Who are some big-time companies having their security vulnerabilities checked? Would you believe the U.S. government Dept of Defense? And there are other heavyweights including Microsoft, Google, United Airlines, Facebook, Yahoo, and Apple.

Technology is here to stay, but as with many good things, there often exists a mixed bag.

 

The New Samsung Galaxy S10

Samsung shipped pre-orders in late February and is hitting the market. As a long-time Galaxy user, I'm aiming for this one. Here's some stats on it:

  • 6.1 inch AMOLED display
  • Operating System: Android 9 Pie One UI 1.1
  • 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization
  • 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera
  • supports hi-res audio; Dolby Atmos
  • in-display fingerprint sensors
  • wireless charging and power sharing
  • 8 GB of RAM
  • Storage: 128/512GB; MicroSD slot
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
  • Colors: Flamingo Pink, Prism Blue, Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Green

Strongly considering this as my next phone.

Cheers

Windows 7 Support Ending

In yesterday's blog, I omitted an important thing you should be aware of concerning Windows 10. If you use Microsoft Office, you can get Windows 10 free. Here's an article that describes this as well as some new Office features:

How to Use the New Office App with Windows 10

In addition, I've included some important points about the Windows 7 support ending, as posted yesterday:

Microsoft will be ending its Windows 7 support in January of 2020. With that said keep in mind the following as well:

  • You can upgrade with a full license to Windows 10. Windows 10 is a great operating system; I've been on it for over two years and I love it.
  • When support ends you can still use Windows 7 although your PC will be vulnerable to security issues. You won't be receiving any more security and feature updates from Microsoft.
