INDUSTRY
According to the RightScale 2014 State of the Cloud Survey, 94 percent of organizations surveyed are either running applications or experimenting with Infrastructure as a Service. One of the more common services that small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are turning to in the cloud is voice over IP (VoIP) for their unified communications needs. Cloud-based, or hosted, VoIP services provide SMBs with benefits that help equalize the playing field against larger businesses and move them away from the antiquated technology that runs most traditional telephone services.
TECH
Wireless charging is a convenient way of topping up your device's battery, and new technology is on the way to make it even better.
At the moment it can take quite a while to fully charge batteries via a wireless charger as the technology can only run at a rate of 5 Watts.
BUSINESS
Digitalization and the digital business are catalysts of change that are affecting the human-machine relationship and driving better customer outcomes. The top 10 predictions indicate that computer-based machines are taking a more active role in enhancing human endeavors, because the machines are more connected than ever before, they are sensing their surroundings, and they are becoming smarter. Because of this, they have an increased ability to supplement (or even supplant) human jobs and to reduce the cost of operations. All in all, the trends indicate a near-term future in which machines and humans are co-workers and, possibly, even codependents.
The top 10 Predictions are organized into three categories:
BONUS
Americans sit through some 11 million meetings every day - with the unproductive ones costing companies $37 billion a year.
We've already learned that meetings fall apart thanks to sloppy agendas, un-articulated ground rules, and other structural mistakes.
So we decided to look at how some of the most effective executives in history - from GM czar Alfred Sloan to Apple prince Steve Jobs to Facebook queen Sheryl Sandberg - run the meetings that invariably fill their calendars.

Dropbox Issue fixed in OS X Yosemite





We're reaching out to let you know about an issue in Apple's new OS X Yosemite that may affect your team's use of Dropbox on Mac computers. Your users can resolve this issue by installing the OS X Update 10.10.1 on all of the Macs in your company running Yosemite. (If your company is not running Yosemite, you can ignore this email).

Apple's new OS X Yosemite may occasionally cause some programs to crash when users open, save-as, or first save a file. These crashes are rare but happen when an application, such as Dropbox, uses Yosemite's official Finder integration — and if that program crashes because of this interaction, unsaved changes may be lost. 

To fix this issue, Apple has released OS X Update 10.10.1. This update is available for free in the Mac App Store. Details on how to update your team's Macs are available on Apple's support site.
