Microsoft Ignite 2020 Lights Up Power Platform With Updates

Earlier this week, I published my first coverage of the virtual Microsoft Ignite 2020 conference, in which I did a flyby over a wide range of product areas—Teams, Power Platform, Azure, and more. While I did touch on some of the Power Platform announcements, today, I will continue my coverage with a more in-depth look at Microsoft’s announcements for its low-code developer platform for businesses. This platform is a great differentiator for Microsoft and one of the best enterprise tools for enabling digital transformation. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite of the company’s offerings to follow, and with all that Microsoft does well, that’s saying something. Let’s take a closer look.

With the current digital transformation rate, accelerated even further by the pandemic, there’s just not enough developer talent out there to keep up with the demand. Many businesses, especially small-to-medium-sized companies, do not

The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest.

Texas Tech fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Texas Longhorns on Saturday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 63-56.

BYU vs. Louisiana Tech: Live updates, score, results, highlights, for Friday’s NCAA Football game

The Cougars ran circles around the Troy Trojans this past Saturday, and the extra yardage (665 yards vs. 157 yards) paid off. BYU took their game at home with ease, bagging a 48-7 win over Troy. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point BYU had established a 38-7 advantage.

Apple Pulls Problematic Safari 14 and Security Updates for macOS Mojave [Updated]

Apple appears to have pulled the latest macOS Mojave Security Update (2020-005), which was released on September 24 alongside the macOS Catalina 10.15.7 update. Apple has also removed Safari 14 for macOS Mojave from download.


Both the Mojave Security Update and the Safari 14 update were causing numerous problems for those still running macOS Mojave, as outlined by Mr. Macintosh.

macOS Mojave users who installed the updates have been noticing memory issues, slow boot times and Finder stalling, numerous system.log entires, and crashes when attempting to use Migration assistant, among other problems. Complaints about the update started shortly after it was released, but Apple did not pull the updates until yesterday.

Those who had already downloaded the Mojave Security Update or installed Safari 14 should soon be getting a fix in the form of updated software that addresses the bugs that were introduced. Reverting to a Time Machine backup, reinstalling

The latest on UGA football and basketball games with Georgia Tech and other schedule updates – Sports – Savannah Morning News

ATHENS — Georgia’s football game with Georgia Tech in 2021 will remain as scheduled to be held in Atlanta even with the teams not playing in Athens this year, Bulldogs athletic director Greg McGarity said.

The in-state rivals will not go up against each other this season for the first time since 1924 after the SEC decided to play a conference-only schedule due to the pandemic. The ACC allowed for one nonconference game played in the school’s home state.

“I think if the shoe were on the other foot, it’s not that you push the game back a year, but it would take both schools to agree to do that and obviously Tech has no interest in doing that,” McGarity said. “We’ll just basically be in Atlanta in 2021. It’s unfortunate but it’s just where things stand.”

The Georgia men’s basketball game at Georgia Tech for this season may not

Microsoft Highlights Future Of Work With Teams Updates (NASDAQ:MSFT)

Having recently passed the six-month point since the COVID-19 pandemic started impacting workplace environments in a big way, and now headed into a fall and winter season that some fear could make things worse, there are a lot of organizations thinking and planning for the future of work.

At its recent Ignite customer event, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) highlighted that it is clearly one of those companies thinking about the evolving work environment by unveiling several important new additions to its Teams collaboration platform. What’s most interesting about these developments isn’t the functionality they bring – though that’s certainly valuable – but how they reflect bigger picture issues about the evolution of the workplace.

At a basic level, some of the new Teams features are add-ons in the seemingly never-ending race to bring more flexibility to videoconferencing applications. As most of us do more and more videoconferences, it’s becoming painfully obvious that
