Microsoft’s Deal With Dropbox

Dropbox and Microsoft Office 365 tie the knot…  It may not be the news that makes me jump up and down as Dropbox still poses great security risk to any business, however – if you want the best synchronisation technology, with the best productivity suite, then this is going to be one relationship worth looking at.  I believe in progress – and this will tick many boxes for small businesses.

In a nutshell – Microsoft Office will support opening files from Dropbox, and Dropbox will be able to launch files directly in office.  Microsoft aims to have a new release of Office Mobile ready before the end of November, and bigger changes in 2015.

iPhone 6 Plus may be recalled

The iPhone 6 Plus 128GB model may need to be recalled due to defective flash RAM. A report from Business Korea warns that Apple might be facing a huge potential iPhone 6 Plus recall, not because it bends — something that is a problem for many buyers, even though the company tried its best to minimize its seriousness — but because of a different kind of issue that might be affecting the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus model. A few days ago, various reports claimed that 128GB iPhone 6 Plus owners have discovered a strange type of error affecting their devices, particularly ones that store very large libraries of apps: the device would constantly crash and reboot, with Apple not being able to fix the issue.

Now, this new report says there may be a memory defect affecting these 128GB iPhone 6 Plus units, specifically with the “controller IC of triple-level cell (TLC) NAND flash” memory.
