When will Apple break up iTunes for Windows?

iTunes, once described as “the best Windows app ever written” by the ever-modest Steve Jobs, has already been transformed into multiple apps for Apple devices. But when will the company’s focus on media and services drive it to introduce better Windows apps?Coming soon, hopefully Apple’s media services focus seems to put the spoken word at the center of the strategy: TV+ delivers video and speaking content. Books also offers audiobooks. Apple Music offers the Beats radio channel. News/News+ now provides spoken daily word news briefings and reports. And the company is thought to be investing in podcasts. Ever since the iPod, Apple’s services vision has embraced other platforms. Just as iTunes was on Windows, TV is on televisions and streaming sticks and Apple Music is available to Windows and Android users.To read this article in full, please click here

At mid-morning Wednesday in the U.S., Outlook stopped working. Dead in its tracks. Both the Click-to-Run version of Office (er, Microsoft) 365 and the installed (MSI) version of Outlook refused to start:  Today when I went to check my email, Outlook would not open; it would load the “Starting Outlook…” splash screen, which would close without opening the Outlook window itself, and the taskbar icon went away. Looking in Reliability History, it states that Outlook has crashed.To read this article in full, please click here

It would ensure that any devices with the Android Enterprise Recommended stamp of approval would receive timely and reliable software updates, among other things — including support of the current Android version and delivery of all security patches within 90 days of their release for a minimum of three years.To read this article in full, please click here

The Microsoft-Android transformation is about to affect us all

I'm starting to feel like a broken record here, but man: Microsoft really is shaping up to be one of the most interesting forces in the Android ecosystem this year.As the company gears up to release its first homegrown Android phone, the unusually dual-screened Surface Duo, we're seeing more and more signs of how it's bending Google's virtual neighborhood to suit its needs. And the effects of those efforts could end up having a surprisingly broad impact on Android — one that'd reach every corner of the ecosystem and all of us who use it, whether or not a Microsoft-branded device is involved.To read this article in full, please click here

Apple, the iPhone 11, CBRS and the enterprise

Apple's iPhone 11 introduced support for Citizens Broadband Radio Services (CBRS) for the first time, which should help U.S. enterprise users solve real problems. What is it and what can it do?What is Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)? A simplified explanation of CBRS is that it’s a selection of new frequencies recently made available in the U.S. by the Federal Communications Commission.It’s sometimes also referred to as "private LTE," because it enables users to create ad hoc wireless networks that are both ultra-private and more reliable than Wi-Fi. The frequencies used are between 3,550-3,700MHz in the 3.5GHz band.To read this article in full, please click here

Memory-Lane Monday: Harder_than_it_looks, apparently

It’s a long time ago, and this pilot fish is writing real-time code for an aerospace company. “On one project, I developed some software to test a radar interface at a remote location,” says fish. “The test software was installed on a computer and the box was shipped to the remote site.”Next day, fish gets a call from an engineer at the test site: The test software is crashing as soon as it starts.Still on the phone, fish opens a listing of the latest version of the source code, and his heart sinks. Right in front of him is a typo that’s guaranteed to cause a fatal error on startup.Fortunately, fish installed the source code and a compiler on the test computer. He can’t directly edit the code, but all he has to do is walk the engineer though the process over the phone — and all the engineer will have to do is type a few commands that will edit the file and build the software.To read this article in full, please click here
