Information Management just published its lessons learned from the data breaches that occurred in 2016.Can we learn anything new from the lessons?No, like so many of the lists published every year, they rehash what we ve known for years.The Move to the Cloud Puts Organizations at Greater Risk Put another way, if the number of internal applications increased as rapidly as cloud deployments have increased, there would be greater risk internally.Coaches know that the more athletes you play the more injuries there will be and the longer the game goes on the more penalties there will be.

Whether they re in our smartphones, laptops, electric cars, or any number of other rechargeable electronic devices, the overwhelming majority of us rely on lithium-ion batteries in our everyday lives.Unfortunately, as companies like Samsung and HP are all too aware, there can be dangerous side-effects to lithium-ion batteries if there are any manufacturing anomalies or damage done to the batteries that affects their structural integrity.There is a highly-flammable liquid electrolyte and porous material layer between the anode and cathode layers in today s lithium-ion batteries.And if that liquid is exposed or otherwise compromised, whether through defects or physical damage, the batteries could literally burst into flames and explode.One of the holy grails of battery development is the creation of a cost-effective, efficient, non-volatile electrolyte material, without the explosive risks associated with current technologies.Mike Zimmerman, a Material Science Professor and former plastics engineer, and his team have created a solid, plastic electrolyte material that is durable, lightweight and already being manufactured in Zimmerman s own small facility.

At an event in San Francisco today, cloud file syncing and sharing software company Dropbox announced the launch of Smart Sync formerly known as Project Infinite .The feature, which is meant to provide easy access to all your data without taking up all the space on your computer, is becoming available for users of the Dropbox Business service tier in an early-access program.Dropbox introduced Project Infinite last April, describing it as a way to see cloud-stored files in folders on your desktop computer but also very quickly save and open local copies of those files whenever you want them.Dropbox came under some criticism for Project Infinite when it became clear that the feature would require kernel access on users computers.But other than that, Dropbox hasn t said much on Project Infinite since then.We re also exploring ways to bring it to individual users in the future, Dropbox vice president of product and design Todd Jackson wrote in a blog post.Additionally today, the Dropbox Paper notetaking app launches out of beta.Dropbox introduced it in 2015, and it launched in open beta in August; at that time, Android and iOS apps became available as well.

The promise of USB-C is great: One cable to connect all of your devices, laptops, tablets, smartphone.Unfortunately it comes with the big caveat that you might end up damaging your gear if you cheap out on a USB-C cable.But Satechi s new Type-C Power Meter makes it easy to tell if your USB-C gadgets are at risk of getting fried, or under-powered, by a sketchy accessory.Given the amount of power a USB-C cable is able to draw, upwards of 3 amps in order to charge a power-hungry laptop, you need to ensure you ve got a high-quality cable or accessory that can handle the load.And as Google s Benson Leung discovered, there s even more risk to your electronics when you ve got a cheap USB-C cable with an older USB connector on the other end that doesn t properly regulate power draw.Buying USB-C cables and accessories from a reputable manufacturer is a good first step to protecting your devices, but there s always the risk you ve accidentally spent money on a convincing counterfeit.

Plus, apartments have different needs than single-family homes.I can t even count the number of LED and smart lightbulbs I have lying around, but when picking out smart lights for the DT smart apartment, I had a number of factors to consider.There are a number of ways to make your lights smart: There are smart bulbs, smart switches, and smart plugs.If your switch isn t permanently flipped up, the app can t illuminate the bulb for you.If you recently switched to non-connected, long-lasting LEDs, fear not.This is more work than swapping a bulb, but it has some advantages.

Docusign has hired Daniel Springer as its new CEO, putting an end to its strange, 18-month quest to find a replacement for current boss, Keith Krach.Springer has the right mix of experience to lead Docusign, an e-signature software maker last valued at $3 billion.He sold his previous company Responsys to Oracle for $1.6 billion in 2014, three years after taking it public.Before that, he spent time at the consulting firm McKinsey and a startup called Telleo."I'm thrilled to discover the opportunity at Docusign.It s a big scale company but also with hyper growth, and that s what gets me excited," Springer told Business Insider.Springer's real challenge will be in ensuring a smooth CEO transition for Docusign, who took an unusually long 18-month period to fill the position.After Krach expressed his desire to step down in 2015, the company was close to appointing Google executive Rick Osterloh as CEO last March — but he pulled out at the last minute, cancelling the press briefings that were already scheduled to announce his hiring.On top of that, Docusign saw four of its top executives suddenly leave last year, adding to speculation around the company, which was once seen as one of the leading candidates to go public soon.

Apple has confirmed to developers it is raising app store prices by up to a third, more than countering any downward currency swing in the British pound since the Brexit vote in June.The changes PDF will happen in seven days and will see the cheapest app go from 79 pence to £0.99 - in the US the entry level price is $0.99 - and from £1.49 to £1.99 in the next price band.When foreign exchange rates or taxation, we sometimes need to update prices on the App Store.Price for app and in-app purchases excluding subscriptions will increase in India, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, the letter to the devs - seen by us - stated.The rise in India and Turkey are related to a service tax rate change, said Apple, but in Blighty the reason is the drop in the local currency, which yesterday fell against the US dollar to a 31-year low of $1.20 to £1.Prior to the EU referendum, £1 would get you $1.42.

Marknaden för containrar – som används av utvecklare för att paketera applikationer – "exploderar" med en mängd startups som vill konkurrera med etablerade leverantörer, som i allt högre grad också prioriterar den här tekniken.Analysföretaget 451 Research har kommit ut med en av de första rapporterna som uppskattar hur den här marknaden växer.Just nu är omsättningen ganska liten: 2016 omsatte marknaden 762 miljoner dollar.Men det kommer att ändras.Den årliga tillväxttakten väntas bli 40 procent fram till 2020 – vilket innebär att den då skulle omsätta 2,6 miljarder dollar.I rapporten skriver 451 Research att den kommersiella marknaden för containrar bara är i sin linda.

Every once in a while when you re using your smartphone, there s that annoying moment when you need to tap through a recipe, flip the page of an eBook, or skip a video ad but don t have a finger to spare.Perhaps they re coated with flour dough — or barbecue sauce.Whatever the reason, the result s the same: You re stuck without a way to use your touchscreen — unless you have the gesture-sensing Bixi 2.0, that is.The original Bixi, the product of the French startup Bluemint Labs, looked a little like a miniature hexagonal hockey puck, and its successor is no different.The Gorilla Glass-shielded black surface, which houses optical sensors and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to a month, is supported by five stabilizing plastic feet.There s also a key chain ring.
