What’s the best way to expand iPhone storage?

- You’ve decided to go with the new iPhone, and chosen a color, but there’s still one more thing to figure out: how much storage to go with. Wait, what?

Wanted: A world where virtual assistants help (without being asked)

- Instead of fearing that artificial intelligence (A.I.) will replace us, we should be excited about how A.I. will help us. In a perfect future, our A.I. virtual assistant will know what we're doing, where we're going and — most importantly — what we're saying. They'll know lots of other things, too. And when they sense we need help, they'll whisper suggestions, ideas or facts into our ears, essentially giving us real-time knowledge as we go about our day

How Hardware Drives The Shape Of Databases To Come

- One of the reasons that the University of California at Berkeley was been a hotbed of software technology back in the 1970s and 1980s is Michael Stonebraker, who was one of the pioneers in relational database technology and one of the industry’s biggest – and most vocal – shakers and movers and one of its most prolific serial entrepreneurs. Like other database pioneers, Stonebraker read the early relational data model papers by IBMer Edgar Codd, and in 1973 started work on the Ingres database along IBM’s own System R database, which eventually became DB2, and Oracle’s eponymous database, which entered the field a few years later

During an event at his company's Silicon Valley headquarters this week, he offered a surprising answer when asked how his new device can compete with Apple or Samsung: The over-saturated smartphone market is actually a signal that things are about to change.

2017 Audi A4 Allroad: Android Auto is great, just not with MMI

- I love Android Auto, but I've given up using it in our long-term 2017 Audi A4 Allroad. In fact, I've given up using it in any car that doesn't have a touchscreen interface. A rotary knob like the one in the Allroad works fine when the system is designed around it, but using it as the input device for Android Auto is frustrating and distracting since it the system was designed for touchscreens

- Presumably the only thing that gives me authority on podcasting is that I have been running my own podcast for almost three years. The Sysadministrivia Podcast often includes not-safe-for-work language—in fact, it conjures images of raucous, uncouth men battling mid-life crises and sitting around a dimly lit poker table, smoking cigars and playing Texas Hold 'Em. We don't play cards, though—we talk about systems administration

Where’s the KB 4034661 jumbo bug fix for Win10 Anniversary Update?
