New Cybersecurity Policy Will Impact Federal IT Market


Federal agencies already under the gun to modernize their information technology capabilities have a new set of standards to meet as a result of an executive order President Donald Trump issued this spring.

You won't have to wait until November to buy Apple's next-gen iPhone 8

For as popular as the iPhone already is, Apple’s iconic smartphone will take things to the next level once the iPhone 8 is released later this year.

Despite Intense Scrutiny, Uber Lays Another Egg


Already under the microscope for claims of sexual harassment and questionable labor practices, Uber said it would ban the use of a controversial technology to block regulatory authorities from monitoring its operations. The company’s “greyballing” technology is designed to hide the standard city app view in specific cases — for example, from former riders blocked for being abusive. However, some drivers have used it to circumvent local regulators, a practice that Uber no longer will allow, according to Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan.

What to Expect at Dreamforce 16


Something tells me that if Salesforce already leaked news about its new AI product, Einstein, that it might not be the biggest news that will emerge from Dreamforce next week.
