Microsoft goofs, leaks new Wi-Fi service for consumers and Office 365 Enterprise subscribers
Microsoft is preparing to rebrand and expand its almost-unknown Skype WiFi service to make it both a consumer service and a perk for enterprises already subscribing to Office 365, according to a briefly-available website. The draft site -- microsoftwifi.com -- was up for hours Tuesday, but was eventually pulled and a "coming soon" placeholder substituted. However, parts of the website still languished in various search engine caches as of early Wednesday. Microsoft touted the service as a "hassle-free" way to connect to the Internet with a single sign-on. Like Skype WiFi, the renamed Microsoft WiFi will let users connect to paid public wireless hotspots without having to grab a credit card and fill out online forms for each operator. Those hotspots are typically found in hotels, airports and restaurants, and in the U.S. often run by companies such as Boingo.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

How to create a robust backup strategy with cloud services
Love it or hate it, cloud storage is here to stay. Yet the fact is that cloud storage providers, like all IT companies, can experience outages or even go out of business. Moreover, the ever-present threat of data-corrupting malware and ransomware means that synchronizing to the cloud no longer offers adequate protection against data loss.With this in mind, let’s look at how you can work with more than one cloud storage service to put together a cloud-based disaster recovery strategy to protect your files.Narrow down your cloud storage option Despite there being many cloud services out there that offer free storage space, it makes sense to narrow down your primary cloud provider to just one service before trying to create a backup strategy. This serves to reduce complexity, and also makes it easier to ensure that your files are accounted for and backed up correctly.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

4 strategies to negotiate a better salary
Salary negotiation is nerve-wracking, whether you've landed a new job or are angling for a raise at your current employer. Here are four strategies to help your next salary or raise negotiation end successfully.1. Don't be afraid to negotiate While salary negotiations can be stressful, don't let fear and anxiety get in the way of being paid what you're worth.

Security startup finds stolen data on the 'Dark Web'
Finding stolen data on the Internet is often the first sign of a breach, and a Baltimore-based startup says it has developed a way to find that data faster and more securely.The company is called Terbium Labs, named after a malleable, silver-gray element. CEO Danny Rogers and CTO Michael Moore say they're taking a large scale, computational approach to finding pilfered data.Terbium's product, Matchlight, uses data fingerprinting techniques to create hashes of an organization's data in fragments as small as 14 bytes. Only those hashes -- which can't be transformed back into the original data -- are stored by Terbium.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
