So I watched the movie "Steve Jobs" last night, what a snooze fest! It was a horrible movie. It wasn't even very historically accurate. When it was first announced that Michael Fassbender (or Fenderbender as I call him) was going to play Steve Jobs, I was like ....WTF. Well, after watching the movie that is still my opinion on that casting choice ...WTF.

 

My dad after watching it made a very good observation. Almost the entire movie takes place 30 mins before some big announcement / keynote. My dad asked, "Did all the important things happen behind stage before the big announcements"

 

It was so stupid. What a waste of what could have been amazing movie.

      TalkTalk hackers get a total of 20 months in prison
      by Paul Hill



      Two hackers, Matthew Hanley, 23, and Connor Allsopp, 21, have been sentenced to a total of 20 months in prison for their part in the 2015 TalkTalk cyber attack. Neither Hanley nor Allsopp, both from Tamworth, UK, exposed TalkTalk’s vulnerability but did exploit the security vulnerability in order to steal more than 8,000 customers’ records. The attack, which could have included up to 10 attackers, is believed to have cost TalkTalk £77 million.

      Hanley and Allsopp via Met Police Hanley was described as a dedicated hacker and that he was on the one that shared the customer details with Allsopp. Subsequently, Allsopp passed on the details to another user for the purposes of fraud, he also supplied them with the tools for doing further hacks. The then-CEO, Dido Harding, was blackmailed with the stolen data with the perpetrators demanding payment in bitcoin. While these two were not doing the blackmailing, the judge said Hanley and Allsopp “helped facilitate it.”

      Judge Anuja Dhir QC, commenting on the case, said:

      Hanley was sentenced to 12 months in jail, while Allsopp was sentenced to just eight; given the rules around sentences in the UK, the pair could be out quite a bit sooner.

      I was hoping I could reach out to all of the pros out in the neowin.net community for some advice. I am trying to find a good training option and I am not really finding quite what I need.
       
      My work is starting to get into continuous integration / automated deployments. I am somewhat familiar with TFS Build system already and have some build / release definitions created for several projects. I am most interested in the training covering migrating branching strategies and the more complex things you can do with creating custom build processes with the new vNext system. Does anyone know of a good online course that is offered that goes into this sort of thing? It could be an onsite deal if necessary instead of online.
       
      The only online resources I can find cover more of the TFS administration, with only covering the TFS Build as a side item. This makes sense from the prospective of most PMs maybe, but it isn't what I am going for. I'm not sure if this is because since Microsoft gives such a good range of options for really making your build process do whatever you want that it is hard to cover a lot of presentation material on the subject or not, but it seems like there should be a paid option out there somewhere.
       
      My company is willing to spend money to make this happen, so that is not a concern at this time, it is just a matter of finding the right resource. Worst case I could always try to find books on Amazon, but that is currently my second choice.

      IDC: Huawei and Lenovo were biggest winners in 2015 smartphone shipments
      by Andrew Stevenson



      The International Data Corporation (IDC) has just announced smartphone shipping performance data for Q4 of 2015, and market data for 2015 as a whole. The numbers have been crunched and the results counted and verified, and over the holiday season (and indeed the year), there was growth for both Samsung and Apple.

      As you can see from the data, Huawei, is up 37.0% on Q4 2014 taking the third spot behind Apple. We’ve previously reported that the Chinese vendor is doing well and our review of the Honour 6 Plus was very positive.

      We should also be tipping our hat to Xiaomi, who managed to open a sizeable gap, from LG in sixth, to claim the number five spot on the list. Posting a 10% year-over-year growth. Expansion into the US market can only help push them further up the chart.

      While Lenovo posted a massive 43.6% growth over the previous year, the purchase of Motorola prompted their name to be mentioned in an 18.1% drop in shipments, compared to Q4 2014. Over the next year, the Motorola name will cease to be, being phased out by Lenovo.

      Probably as expected, Samsung posted an increase, coming out on top with 14% growth compared to the same period the previous year.

      This just leaves Apple, who have been reporting a slowdown in their iPhone sales. The IDC corroborate this, with Apple only posting a 0.4% growth compared to 2014. That said, they still took the number two spot, because it’s Apple!

      Finally, when we compare the figures for 2015 as a whole, the top five remains the same, again with Huawei posting a hugely impressive 44.3% growth, over 2014, putting it firmly in the "big winner" category for the year. As for Apple, it still managed to ship 231.5 million smartphones in 2015, a growth of 20.2% over 2014. Finally, while Samsung only grew 2.1% over the previous year, it did this by shipping a whopping 324.8 million handsets.
