SAN FRANCISCO – This week’s Tech Deep Dive podcast started out on Windows 10 and the new Surface Pro devices, moved on to security and ended “liking” Facebook’s new emojis.
Forrester analyst Julie Ask talked about Millennials and their devices after a quick intro to the Surface Pro 4 tablet hybrid. The consensus was that more and more a device is only a means to an end — with the end being files and information stored in the cloud.
Caleb Barlow, vice president at IBM Security, offered some thoughts on what all this means for security, especially when employees today want to use their own devices.
There’s even a word for what happens to devices with very strong security that aren’t easy to use — they get “bobbed.” That’s for Bottom of the Bag, which is where they tend to end up when the user reaches for an easy-to-use phone instead of the secure one they’ve been issued by their employer.
USA TODAY’s Elizabeth Weise and Laura Mandaro added a bit about Facebook’s new emojis, which offer users options beyond just “liking” something — especially helpful when someone’s sharing bad news.
