Evernote backtracks, makes employee peeking opt-in

Evernote backtracks, makes employee peeking opt-in

Well that was quick. Just as Evernote's privacy mess escalated rather quickly, its resolution came quickly as well. Whether forgiveness and redemption will also quickly follow remains to be seen. Sensing that a inconsequential apology from CEO Chris O'Neill wasn't enough to quell flaring tempers, Evernote has quickly followed with a statement that they are revising their stance. Sort of. They will still offer users the "privilege" of enhancing their experience by letting employees read snippets of notes. This time, however, they're making it optional by default rather than the other way around.

Privacy should never be sacrificed for the sake of free

Privacy should never be sacrificed for the sake of free

Yesterday was not a very good day for privacy. First was the revelation that Evernote’s new privacy policy will basically allow its engineers to take a peek at any of your notes. Then there’s Google’s lawsuit settlement, which involves still scanning your (and non-Gmail users’) e-mails. And to top it all off, Yahoo has admitted that an even more massive breach happened in 2013, affecting no less than 1 billion accounts. All this should send chills down your spine, and yet most people will probably react to the news with a shrug. Have we become accustomed, even numb, to intrusions of privacy in exchange for service? Common sense tells us we shouldn’t, and yet that might not be the case.

Available to Windows Insiders first and then coming to the Windows 10 Creator’s Update next year, Microsoft Edge will take a stronger approach to decreasing Flash’s use by requiring users to click to even load Flash content instead of running them by default and then making users pause or stop them.

Microsoft Surface: what Redmond finally got right

Microsoft Surface: what Redmond finally got right

Microsoft, unsurprisingly, made a rather bold boast this week. It attributed the strong sales of its Surface devices to a growing dissatisfaction among MacBook Pro users. While many will definitely call BS on that, it's futile to deny facts. The Surface Pro tablets and the Surface Book laptop has done quite well. An achievement for a company that has traditionally sucked at devices (save for the Xbox). That success is definitely surprising and unexpected, which makes us ask, "how the hell did Microsoft pull it off?"

macOS 10.12.2 removes Time Remaining estimate, users cry out

macOS 10.12.2 removes Time Remaining estimate, users cry out

Apple has been hailed for championing simplicity and minimalism but, at the same time, also accused of “dumbing” things down because users will be too confused. The latest macOS Sierra maintenance update, version 10.12.2, will probably be remembered for the latter. Together with the dozens of fixes for actual issues and security holes, Apple silently sneaked in, or rather out, one more. Much to some users’ exasperation, Apple has removed the “Time Remaining” indicator from the battery applet. Apple’s reason? It’s not exactly accurate and, therefore, confusing
