Buy your iPhone charger straight from Apple, warns a new safety study

Six weeks after Apple launched a lawsuit in connection with fake chargers and other “Apple” items being sold online, tests carried out by global independent safety body UL on such devices have shown 99 percent of them to be unsafe.

Commissioned by the U.K.’s Trading Standards organization, UL officials tested 400 fake chargers – sold as made by Apple but found to be fake – and discovered that all but three fell short of basic safety standards, the BBC reported Thursday.

Illinois-based UL found that nearly all of the devices lacked sufficient insulating material to protect against electric shocks. The chargers used in the tests were bought online from eight countries, among them the U.S., China, and Australia.

The chief executive of the U.K.’s Chartered Trading Standards Institute told the BBC that consumers should think seriously about how they buy such items for their smartphones and other gadgets.

“It might cost [a little] more, but counterfeit and second-hand goods are an unknown entity that could cost you your home or even your life, or the life of a loved-one,” Leon Livermore said.

With seemingly so many stories in recent months of faulty batteries causing sudden fires and meltdowns, device owners are being warned to take simple steps to stay safe, including never to cover their gadgets when they’re charging and never to use a charger that’s obviously damaged, such as one with a visibly damaged cable.

Apple lawsuit

Apple’s October lawsuit, which targeted Amazon seller Mobile Star, is an attempt by the tech company to stamp out the trade in fake Apple goods.

To support its claim against Mobile Star, the Cupertino company tested more than 100 “Apple” chargers and other products bought from a number of Amazon sellers, and found 90 percent of the devices to be fake.

Apple noted in its lawsuit that “unlike genuine Apple products, they are not subjected to industry-standard consumer safety testing and are poorly constructed with inferior or missing components, flawed design and inadequate electrical insulation.”

 My 8 Reasons to Get Excited about Dynamics 365

Microsoft Partners know that business is first and foremost about meeting their customer’s needs. Today’s digital tsunami of automated marketing, spam, telemarketers, and poorly targeted advertising has left customers disinterested and confused. In order to really engage with your customers, authenticity is key.The modern partner knows that to attract customers into the buyer’s journey, they must create a customer focused culture and service oriented sales process. That’s where products like Microsoft Dynamics 365 is revolutionizing the customer engagement and business processes experience. Here’s why you should be excited about our next generation of business apps in the cloud.

1. Seamless Integration with a Unified Platform

Dynamics 365 is all about access to end-to-end intelligent business applications. It gives partners everything they need to provide those intelligent business solutions to their customers, all from the convenience and power of the cloud.

The combination of CRM and ERP applications is of incredible value to businesses. The vision behind Dynamics 365 was born from the goal to make business applications easier to integrate into compelling processes quicker and more efficiently. This unified platform makes the development of partner solutions easier to build, test, demo, deploy, and manage. Now, all of Microsoft’s intelligent business apps will align to a common data model. That streamlined efficiency means you will be better able to connect with your customers consistently.

“The powerful ability to combine the business process data from Dynamics 365 with PowerBI, PowerApps, Flow, and Office 365 and deliver a creative solution that really delights the customer gets us all very excited. That’s what it is all about, creating something new that is truly better than anything our customers have ever experienced before!”

“Cloud business applications enables faster deployment for our Customers – delivering quicker time to value.“
– Sam Dharmasiri, Sales Director at eBECS Ltd.

6. Built-In Intelligence and Advanced Analytics

Dynamics 365 helps businesses connect with their customers by enabling them to start with the basics, then grow and automate their business capabilities at their own pace. It connects the structured workflow of business applications with unstructured processes and uses built-in intelligence and advanced analytics to guide employees to greater sales or marketing results.

The nimble and adaptable applications of Dynamics 365 allow business users to change and adapt to their customers’ needs in real time, without IT supervision. It allows organizations to reimaging their business processes at their own pace with a consistent yet flexible platform.

“The biggest change for companies like us is that all our solutions used to be add-ons. With Dynamics365 we now are able to take a much broader perspective on our products. We can now set up workflows across platforms, such as Powerapps and even Office 365. That is a big change for us. We now are looking beyond the products themselves and are focusing more on the customer needs and user expectations.”Microsoft Office 2010

Latest Upgrade to Windows 10 with System Center Configuration Manager

Upgrade to Windows 10 with System Center Configuration Manager
Special Summer Windows Upgrade service call now $59 for first hour. 4 hour min. Peter Coach Computer Systems Specialist 631-834-4796

Michael Niehaus|Last Updated: 5/27/2016

IN THIS ARTICLE

Applies to

Windows 10

The simplest path to upgrade PCs currently running Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 is through an in-place upgrade. You can use a System Center Configuration Manager task sequence to completely automate the process.

Proof-of-concept environment

For the purposes of this topic, we will use four machines: DC01, CM01, and PC0003. DC01 is a domain controller and CM01 is a Windows Server 2012 R2 standard machine, fully patched with the latest security updates, and configured as a member server in the fictional contoso.com domain. PC0003 is a machine with Windows 7 SP1, targeted for the Windows 10 upgrade. For more details on the setup for this topic, please see Deploy Windows 10 with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.

figure 1
Figure 1. The machines used in this topic.
Upgrade to Windows 10 with System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager
System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1 adds support to manage and deploy Windows 10. Although it does not include built-in support to perform an in-place upgrade from Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, you can build a custom task sequence to perform the necessary tasks.

Create the task sequence
To help with this process, the Configuration Manager team has published a blog that provides a sample task sequence, as well as the original blog that includes the instructions for setting up the task sequence. To summarize, here are the tasks you need to perform:

Download the Windows10Upgrade1506.zip file that contains the sample task sequence and related scripts. Extract the contents onto a network share.

Copy the Windows 10 Enterprise RTM x64 media into the extracted but empty Windows vNext Upgrade Media folder.

Using the Configuration Manager Console, right-click the Task Sequences node, and then choose Import Task Sequence. Select the Windows-vNextUpgradeExport.zip file that you extracted in Step 1.

Distribute the two created packages (one contains the Windows 10 Enterprise x64 media, the other contains the related scripts) to the Configuration Manager distribution point.

For full details and an explanation of the task sequence steps, review the full details of the two blogs that are referenced above.

Create a device collection

After you create the upgrade task sequence, you can create a collection to test a deployment. In this section, we assume you have the PC0003 machine running Windows 7 SP1, with the Configuration Manager client installed.

On CM01, using the Configuration Manager console, in the Asset and Compliance workspace, right-click Device Collections, and then select Create Device Collection. Use the following settings:

General

Name: Windows 10 Enterprise x64 Upgrade

Limited Collection: All Systems

Membership rules:

Direct rule

Resource Class: System Resource

Attribute Name: Name

Value: PC0003

Select Resources

Select PC0003

Review the Windows 10 Enterprise x64 Upgrade collection. Do not continue until you see the PC0003 machine in the collection.

Sticky: Office 365 Account Management

Office 365 Account Management
Office 365 Account Management

Account, Group, and Resource Management

Overview

  • NYP Active Directory is synchronized with Office 365
    • This permits for management of users, groups, and resources through tools like ADUC/ADAC
  • Synchronization will push changes from NYP Active Directory to Office 365
  • Processes are being put in place to aid in account and resource provisioning

Synchronization

A process called DirSync copies information to Office 365 roughly every 10 minutes (varies based on workload)

  • Most account changes need to be made in NYP Active Directory and then allow DirSync to push them up to Office 365
  • Changes to the global address list are only processed once a day at 3am, and therefore may not show up to end users until the next day.
  • This is a process controlled by Microsoft across their customer base and is not a process DoT can manually kick off

General Account Changes

  • NYP Active Directory is synchronized with Office 365
  • This permits for management of users, groups, and resources through tools like ADUC/ADAC
  • Synchronization will push changes from NYP Active Directory to Office 365
  • When the following fields are changed in Active Directory the changes will later appear in Office 365
  • First Name (under an automated process)
  • Last Name (under an automated process)
  • Display Name
  • Username
  • Job Title
  • Department
  • Office Phone
  • Mobile Number
  • Fax Number
  • Street Address
  • City
  • State
  • ZIP

Distribution Group Management

  • Distribution Groups are created and managed in Active Directory
  • There are two types of distribution groups
  • A native distribution group which is designed solely for emailing groups of individuals
  • A security group can also be mail enabled allowing emailing of the group members
  • This can reduce need for duplicate group creation if members are the same
  • Distribution Groups can be hidden from the address book (GAL), which DoT can assist in configuring
  • Mail aliases can be created for distribution groups, which DoT can assist in configuring
  • Currently Distribution Groups need to be managed using tools such as ADUC/ADAC

Note Regarding Migration

  • The tools indicated for user and resource provisioning and conversion are designed primarily for new accounts
  • Unless directed by DoT, do not utilize these accounts to assist in the migration process
  • DoT may utilize these tools to rectify account issues with the migration, but only after checking on other settings with the account beforehand
  • Many times accounts that are having problems during migration require specific issue resolution

User Provisioning

  • Provisioning is the process of creating an account in Office 365
  • A SharePoint form allows for LAN staff to provision accounts to Office 365
  • https://collaboration.nyplace.org/sites/resourcecenter/sys/Lists/Account%20Provisioning
  • Enter the username from Active Directory, and select the account type of User
  • Choose whether they should have a G1 or G3 license
  • Select whether their email should forward back to GroupWise/Gmail/Lotus Notes when provisioned
  • If your site HAS NOT been migrated to Outlook, you should select Yes
  • If your site HAS been migrated to Outlook, you should select No
  • Due to dependency on several subsystems the provisioning process can take up to an hour to fully provision an account
  • You can only provision a user account you have rights over in Active Directory
  • An email will be sent to you when an account has been provisioned

Resource Provisioning

  • A resource is a Room, Equipment, or Shared Mailbox
  • Prior to provisioning a resource, an account should be created in Active Directory that represents the resource
  • Resources are provisioned through the same form indicated prior
  • Select the resource account in the form
  • Select whether their email should forward back to GroupWise when provisioned
  • After a resource is provisioned groups are created in Active Directory that provide various access levels to the resource
  • A Room or Equipment Mailbox will have a FC (Full Control) group created
  • A Shared Mailbox will also have a SA (Send As) and SOB (Send On Behalf) group created
  • Populating these groups in Active Directory will provide users the above required permissions
  • Because resource accounts are considered a ‘place holder’ object in Active Directory, the account is disabled by the provisioning process

Account Conversion

  • You can use the provisioning system to perform some forms of account conversion in Office 365
  • You can convert which license is assigned to a user in Office 365
  • You can convert a user mailbox to a shared mailbox
  • To convert you submit them for provisioning
  • The conversion process can still take up to an hour to complete

How Does the Translator Works?

According to the company, “the training data for speech recognition and translation is fetched from the different sources such as  translated web pages, previous conversations, videos with captions etc. It records the conversations to help the machine teach better and hence, giving the users the best translation in all the four languages during Skype calls.” Same goes with the instant messaging, but it’s not hard as converting the live conversations. You can see the video of how to setup Skype Translator on your windows desktop right here:

Who Will Find it Useful?

Anyone in the world can use the Skype Translator Preview on their windows PC or laptop. However, the ones dealing with clients in different country with different language preferences will find it more immensely useful. There are times someone approaches you with a project, but he/she is unable to speak in English and can only speak the native language. This is the time when you, as a business owner, will find it pretty easy to deal such situations.

Skype is getting better with usage and user feedback. Translation ability will expand as more and more people use application.
