Practice Safe Surfing
Our March issue of SIMformation deals with safe practices for use of the Internet at work, home and in public places. We have seen increasing incidents of ransomware, spearphishing and malware affecting our customers, and so this month we remind people of ways to avoid being infected. We also look at some new technology that will make a splash in 2016, and have our usual look at other industry news.
In our January issue of SIMformation, SIM2K president Mark Finegan weighs in on the move to "The Cloud" and if the economics of moving to an off-site cloud vendor really makes economic sense. We also look at the new policy from Microsoft to push Windows 10 upgrades out to business users and how SIM2K can help block this alert. We take a look at a new browser designed to block ads - by substituting its own?! Amazon's drone program is gaining steam, and we also discuss safety and security issues in light of the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT).

We also discuss ad blockers and why this tool is becoming more important in an environment where malware is being delivered through corrupted web site
advertising. We discuss the trend towards the new devices that straddle the line between laptops and tablets – the iPad Pro and Surface Pro. And, there's more inside this issue too!

We also look at the continuing "Computer Center" scam calls problem and what the FTC can and cannot do to stop these. And, we look at Windows 10 and Chrome adoption, and lagging PC sales and more in this issue.
The Internet of Things
Our October issue of SIMformation discusses the Internet of Things and potential issues of having devices connected to the Internet that extend into our businesses and even our homes - is this really a benefit to us or are we opening ourselves to malware where least expected. We also discuss some issues with cell phones, especially iPhones and the Wi-Fi Assist feature. We look at how lightning strikes took out a Google Cloud data center affecting operations for those sited there,
and have a wrap-up of other IT news and information.
