Some form of tech roundup!

I’m really losing track of what, who, when or where my news is! My life has been a whirlwind of half-days, trips to London and interviews! The good news is that I have now attained another freelance position at the very snazzy ITProPortal, so effectively my new output will double! On top of that I have a second-stage interview next week with the IT powerhouses of ITPro and CloudPro, where hopefully I can wow them with my tiny blog statistics and (ahem) wit.

This week, last week’s and everything in between roundup will be a slap dash affair I’m afraid, even more so as I’m doing it on a Thursday instead of a Friday, when I should really be doing it!

So what do we have? Tumblr has ramped up security on its site with two-stage authentication, while Google and AWS battle it out in the competition to see who can cut cloud prices the furthest. Facebook, Paypal and Ashton Kutcher (?!) have all invested in a secretive AI firm, while employees are going against company wishes to use commercial cloud services.

Here’s all of the news:

Last week’s (and some of this week’s) tech news roundup!

Well, this is getting complicated. I really have to make sure that I get more regular with these so news doesn’t overlap! Anyway, here are some recent tech stories, including the news that Morrisons have had the details of their employees stolen and posted online. IT pros have also said in a survey that wearable tech will outsell traditional electronics within five years. I don’t know about you, but I for one welcome our new clunky-watch filled future!

Here’s the rest, as usual:

This week’s (and last week’s) tech news roundup!

Whoops, I might have forgotten a little bit about this blog. I’ve been all over the place in travelling to interviews and sending applications, as well as having to sort out some money issues and an upcoming visit to Wembley. You lucky things, you get two doses of tech news this week. It might be old, but it’s still juicy! The best reading can be found where an IBM man has said that Windows Phone is the best for business, as well as scary news from McAfee, who have writ large about a secret underground malware industry. 300,000 routers might have been infected in a new mega-hack too!

Here’s the roundup in full:

This week’s tech news roundup

Once again I’m horribly late to round up the news, but life gets in the way sometimes, and I was enjoying my weekend far too much!

So, here we have an update for the week of the 24th to the 28th. There’re some big goings on at Google, who have peeved more than a few by taking the stance to disable any apps that have not been downloaded from their own app store. I suppose when you start filling your company with ex-Microsoft employees you’re bound to start to turn into a consumer-ignoring super-corp, right? Gartner has also raised a few eyebrows by predicting that 33% of the Fortune 100 companies will have an ‘information crisis’ by 2017. It’s of course only a coincidence that their management convention is around the corner.

Here’s the rest of last week’s news, enjoy!

This week’s tech news roundup

This post is slightly late due to other commitments at the weekend, but that doesn’t mean that the news isn’t as quality as always! With the mobile world congress on the horizon there have been a lot of stories on networking and mobility.

Perhaps the most worrying is the study conducted by Tripwire that discovered that four-fifths of popular routers have major security flaws. Better news came in the way of findings that British companies are the best for outsourcing their IT needs, while French and German premier’s are discussing a European communications network.

Here’s all the news as always:
