In a recent data snapshot on business chat applicationssuch as Slack and Microsoft teams, the Spiceworks Community said that by the beginning of 2019, usage of the business chat application Microsoft Teams would stand at around 20 percent of businesses. By comparison, 17 percent of IT pros said their organization will have adopted Slack by then.
This prediction came as a surprise to many considering Slack's early lead, but once you consider that Teams is available at no additional cost to organizations that use Office 365, and that more than half of organizations have an O365 subscription, you realize that money talks.
But while saving money might be a good reason to adopt one collaboration app over another, the price tag alone doesn't tell the entire story. With the recent news that more than 200,000 organizations are using Microsoft...
World Backup Day is March 31, and backup is on many IT pros' minds. If you work in tech, data backups can be your best friend.For example, if someone accidentally deletes critical files from a share, backups are there to save the day. When ransomware holds your data hostage, you can just wipe the drive, and restore from a backup. And if a hard drive dies, you can just pop in a working one then apply a working image.
What about backing up people?
If any part of your body is like a computer, it's your brain. In fact, the word for computer in some languages literally means "electronic brain."
Think about it. Both a computer and a brain handle input and output from various "perhiperals"; they both process data quickly; and there's a storage and memory component to them both (long term vs short-term memory).

My wife is a nurse and we got to talking about the idiots we work for/with and I was telling her about PEBCAK and ID10T. She said they have one similar "Pod People". This refers to people that get hurt while listening to their ipods/headphones.
Got me thinking, I wonder what kind of other amazing words are out there to describe people's idiotic behavior.
I know, it's been a while. Sorry about that. Life has been absolutely bonkers.
Let's start with some backstory. My grandfather gave me some rings to use, I lost my phone, I proposed, she said yes, blah blah blah. That should do it, yeah?
So we've been planning a wedding, no surprise to anyone. That's kind of the next logical step. At this point, her dress is mostly done (made by my mom), the cake is planned (also will be made by my mom), the decorations for the reception are coming along (most things organized and planned by my mom, who is quite possible the world's best mom at this point). If you're wondering why I'm not taking a larger hand in things, it's because we live in / near Raleigh, NC, but are getting married near Charleston, SC. So rather than do remote planning, she's doing the legwork (as she lives there). Seriously. This...

So we use Carbonite to backup our laptops, and mine runs daily at 4pm so it backs up before I shut down and throw it in my laptop bag for the night. Well today, it decided to through an error message that it was having trouble...

As an IT professional, you likely have a firm grasp on how tech works at both your company and within your industry. But how much do you know about IT in other businesses and trades? In a series called Extreme IT, we highlight both tech and IT pros in interesting or unusual industries.
Since the launch of the originalStar Trek in 1966, “Space ... the final frontier” has become a trope for human curiosity and exploration: a match between our ingenuity and the (nearly) infinite.
You simply can’t continue to forge that final frontier without advancements in technology — and the means to support that tech once it's engaged.
That’s where Stephen Hunter, manager of ISS Computer Resources at NASA, enters the picture.His job is to supply primary IT resources, operations support, and payload utilization for NASA on the International Space...
This Japanese animatronic scarecrow wolf is fending off pests and protecting crops for farmers. I'm thinking it could have server room applications as well.
