Tired of marketers dialing it in to check a box.I’m not coming from a place of having all of the answers – and I’m fighting with several of these issues, too.– we all can benefit from thinking beyond the usual platitudes and ideas.But, I like how Mark Schaeffer takes this further when he talks about content creation in his book Known:Answering customer questions is a solid strategy for beginners, but it’s not ideal in every situation, especially in a more crowded content niche.In that situation, you need to focus on insights instead of just answers.

p EK Water Blocks has announced it is retiring its existing Nvidia GeForce GTX 10x0 and Titan X water block families, halting production and selling off existing stock, in favour of a new family of full-coverage blocks designed for Founders Edition reference design cards.According to EK Water Blocks' product change notification, the company's entire range of water blocks for Nvidia's GeForce GTX 10x0 and Titan X graphics cards has entered end-of-life.Current stock of the coolers will continue to be sold, but once existing stock runs out there will be no more and the stock keeping units (SKUs) will be delisted from the company's web store.The reason: the launch of a new range of water blocks, designed to fit Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, Titan X Pascal and Titan Xp 'Founders Edition' reference designs.According to EK Water Blocks' reckoning, this covers 106 graphics cards from a range of Nvidia's hardware partners, with the proviso that 'we recommend that [buyers] refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match' to see if a particular Founders Edition is a true reference design or modified in such a way that it would be incompatible with the block.The new blocks come with a range of improvements, the company claims, most obvious of which is what the company describes as a 'recently introduced aesthetic terminal cover' as standard.

p Twitter held its annual shareholder meeting yesterday, and while most of the information provided wasn’t new, CEO Jack Dorsey did reveal one interesting detail, regarding live video.In a segment of his presentation on the platform’s performance, regarding their increased use of machine learning and personalization, Dorsey showed this image on screen.A selection of in-progress live videos at the top of the feed, which would theoretically function similar to how the ‘While you were away…’ tweet highlights work – you get shown what’s happening, then your feed converts to real-time updates from there.When discussing live video, Twitter COO/CFO Anthony Noto said that they currently offer a live video highlights module within the Explore tab on Android, and they’ll soon roll one out on iOS.They didn’t discuss the specifics of this new ‘Happening now’ video segment within timelines, but VP or Product Keith Coleman later confirmed they’re experimenting with the new option.In the expanded discussion around boosting engagement, Dorsey also noted that they’re working on utilizing notifications to make users more aware of personally relevant news events as they happen – he illustrated this by discussing a protest in his local area which tweets could have alerted him to an hour before it happened (he didn’t receive any such notification in this instance, but that’s where they’re now looking).

p If you own an affected lens Canon says it will inspect and repair it free of charge.Canon USA, in addition to most other Canon subsidiaries internationally, has officially confirmed the existence of some autofocus defects with its newly released 24-105mm F/4L IS II lens.This comes after a Canon subsidiary in the Philippines prematurely released the announcement a week or so early, causing many to wonder about the issue, and its validity, after that release was removed from the website.Well, now that the release has been made official, you are probably wondering what Canon is saying could be wrong with your brand-new 24-105mm F/4L IS II lens.According to the Canon product advisory notice, the issue becomes apparent on the wider end of the lens (at or around 24mm) and results in focus not being properly achieved when peripheral AF points are selected.Canon says this issue happens regardless of AF mode used, but luckily it only appears to effect a limited supply of the shipped 24-105mm F/4L IS II lenses.

p The worst of the WannaCry global malware attack may be over for now, but specialists say it has changed the game in cybersecurity.“In the past, the tools and technologies [of launching cyberattacks on such a scale] were in the hands of governments.But now, a thug on the street can get access to a cyberweapon of mass destruction,” Professor Xue Yibo, a researcher at Tsinghua University’s Network Security Lab in Beijing, said.The WannaCry virus started spreading rapidly around the world on Friday, locking up data on infected computers and networks in more than 100 countries, and demanding a ransom to release the systems.And while international cybersecurity agencies reported variants of the ransomware, all appeared to respond to a “kill switch” stopping them from wreaking further havoc.WannaCry encrypted user data and deleted the original files, but some files, mostly text documents, could be retrieved using existing system recovery tools, the specialists said.

Nowadays, people around the world instantly communicate and bridge the distance via voice calls, texts, and emails with the simple touch of a button.The service — now one of the most popular chat clients in the world — conveniently allows users to see one another using a webcam while talking as if they were facing each other in the same room.Skype essentially brought people together, granting them an easy means for intimately communicating with people thousands of miles away.With the introduction of smartphones touting front-facing cameras, a slew of tools for video chatting soon found their way to mobile devices.The reason that Facebook Messenger is perhaps the best choice on this list is the fact that you probably already have it, and most of your friends do too.Simply open up the app, press on the person you want to call, and tap the camera button in the top-right corner.

p How to accidentally stop a global cyber attacks So finally I’ve found enough time between emails and Skype calls to write up on the crazy events which occurred over Friday, which was supposed to be part of my week off (I made it a total of 4 days without working, so there’s that).Presumably there’s an element of using that understanding to defuse criticism when it comes to subjects like the terrible reputation of Steam’s support system and whether it’s warranted if you add in some more data.We just squirt all the footprints onto a board layout, connect all the traces, send out the gerbers and position files, and we’re done–right?Whoa, hold the phone, there, young rogue!Just like we can hack together some working source code with variables named after our best friends, we can also design our PCBs in ways that make it fairly difficult to assemble.Windows 10 Edge, IE: We're now blocking sites signed with SHA-1 certs, says Microsoft With this week's monthly Patch Tuesday, Microsoft has also rolled out a new policy for Edge and Internet Explorer that prevents sites that use a SHA-1-signed HTTPS certificate from loading.

p KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a man with a better-than-average record at predicting which way Apple will go in the market, is confident that we'll see both the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the long-rumored Siri speaker unveiled at WWDC this June.As 9to5Mac reports, Ming-Chi Kuo puts the chances of the iPad showing up at 70 percent, and the chances of Apple's Echo competitor appearing at 50 percent, so tailor your expectations accordingly.The claim does fit in with earlier rumors we've heard about both the tablet and the speaker.WWDC, or the Worldwide Developers Conference, runs from June 5 to June 9 this year.The annual developer shindig is traditionally used to show off advancements in macOS, iOS, tvOS and watchOS, but the event has also been used to debut hardware before.Talk to the touch panel

Without early reviews – delivered just after a phone is announced or before it goes on sale – it’s difficult to judge whether a phone is truly worth pre-ordering or buying, but there is a problem with those reviews: time.In all forms of technology, time plays a large factor in the experience and, specifically, how a handset performs after weeks, months or even years of use can be radically different to how it was at the start.On the one hand, Samsung has gone all-out to make a phone with luscious curves that stands out from the crowd thanks to its incredible sex appeal.The lack of the curved dropped edge on the G6 also means it feels more grippy, and less likely to slip out of your hand.The LG G6 is powered by late last year’s Snapdragon 821 processor with 4 GB of RAM and an Adreno 530 GPU.Samsung, as you know, is rumored to have had first dibs on the initial batches of Snapdragon 835 chipsets as part of its manufacturing agreement with Qualcomm.

p It looks to me like Microsoft has wrestled control of our creative future from Apple and Adobe.When you combine Microsoft's two most recent updates of its Windows 10 operating system -- the first Creators Update and the just-announced Fall Creators Update -- with its aggressive work in mixed-reality and computing-related hardware, Microsoft looks like Windows is turning into the go-to platform for creative work and cross-device productivity.Plus we don't know what Apple's got up its sleeve for its own WWDC developer conference next month, or what secret projects they may delight us with.The data Microsoft's collecting on you -- Microsoft Graph -- is at the core of almost all of its recent development activities, and I think Microsoft has just accelerated the demise of your privacy.(I'm looking forward to reading the updated privacy policies.)Relatively inexpensive headset packages are going to be shipping in time for the winter holidays, including a new design in motion controllers for interacting with a virtual environment.

p The Google Pixel 2 is set to be a flagship phone, so we’d expect it to be packed full of power, and now a benchmark has provided some evidence of exactly that.Listed on Geekbench and spotted by PocketNow, the benchmark is for the ‘Google taimen’ - which is widely rumored to be one of the codenames for the new Pixel 2 - and reveals 4GB of RAM and a 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm chipset.That chipset is almost certainly the top-end Snapdragon 835, since 1.9GHz is the speed the slowest four cores of the 835 typically run at, and as the Snapdragon 835 has been rumored for the Pixel 2 before.Those specs would combine to make the phone’s power a match for the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium, at least on paper.Its multi-core benchmark score of 6248 suggests it will be powerful in practice too, since that’s not too far off the Galaxy S8, which in our own tests scored 6630, and this is pre-release hardware, so the Pixel 2 might score higher at launch.Though of course, by the time the Pixel 2 does launch in likely October the specs might feel a bit less cutting edge.
