    How to Grant or Deny an iOS App Access to Your Location 

    Many of the apps you install ask for permission to access your location – and if the app seems useful, you’re going to allow it more often than not. But we tend to forget about this afterwards, and over time, you’ve got a dozen different apps that are asking for location information and draining out the battery. For both privacy reasons and practical concerns about battery life, this kind of usage is a problem. Or sometimes it happens you deny an app location access on first launch, but you may need to enable it later, but are not sure how to go about this.

    Some apps such as Zomato only use your location when you have the app open. Others such as Google Maps use your location even in the background. There may be a legitimate reason for this. In the case of Google Maps, it provides directions even when the app is not open. But that’s not the case for all apps that use your location.

    The easy solution is to just turn off the GPS altogether – but this means that even important apps you rely on can’t check your location. If your battery life is getting worse by the day though, or if you’re just not comfortable with certain apps sharing your location data, then you can turn off location access for just those apps.

    Here’s how to enable or disable location access for individual apps on iPhone or iPad.

    Microsoft, Cray Partner to Give Azure Cloud Users Supercomputer Access 

    Highlights Cray has partnered with Microsoft to bring its devices to Azure This might offer dedicated Cray systems in Microsoft’s data centres This can make Cray systems affordable for some people too

    US-based supercomputer manufacturer Cray has partnered with Microsoft to bring its devices and storage system to the Azure Cloud platform.

    “Using the enterprise-proven power of Microsoft Azure, customers are running their most strategic workloads in our cloud,” Tech runch quoted Jason Zander, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Azure, as saying.

    “By working with Cray to provide dedicated supercomputers in Azure, we are offering customers uncompromising performance and scalability that enables a host of new previously unimaginable scenarios in the public cloud.

    “More importantly, we are moving customers into a new era by empowering them to use HPC and AI to drive breakthrough advances in science, engineering and health,” Zander added.

    Microsoft and Cray are looking at offering dedicated Cray systems in Microsoft’s data centres so that Cray users can easily access the rest of the Azure cloud services.

    Similarly, potential Cray users can now also get access to these machines without having to own and maintain a data centre themselves.

    Each Cray system will be custom configured to match the individual customer’s needs.

    This might prove to be good news for people who wish to use Cray machines that are extremely expensive to even rent.

    Since Cray’s focus remains squarely on the high-performance computing needs of researchers in both academia and industry, the partnership could provide the potential users a cheaper option.

    Microsoft Teams Gets Guest Access Feature for Office 365 Commercial, Education Users 

    Highlights Users from outside the company can be added as guests The company says guest access is one of the most-requested features IT will be able to centrally control the guest accounts as well

    Microsoft on Monday announced that it is introducing the heavily-requested guest access feature to its Teams messaging platform. The Redmond-based company said that it is now rolling out the new feature to all Office 365 commercial and education customers. This means that Office 365 users can now add people from outside their own company to a team.

    “Now Office 365 users can add people from outside their company to a team, so guests can participate in chats, join meetings, collaborate on documents, and more,” Microsoft said in its blog post. Starting Monday, anyone with an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) account can be added as a guest in Teams. This effectively means that users from Microsoft commercial cloud services and third-party Azure AD integrated apps can be added as a guest.

    “Later, we’ll add the ability for anyone with a Microsoft Account (MSA) to be added as a guest in Teams. If the guest doesn’t have an existing MSA, they will be directed to create a free account using their current corporate or consumer email address, such as Outlook.com or Gmail.com,” the company said in its post.

    Microsoft says that the new feature comes with enterprise-grade security as the guest accounts are added and securely managed within Azure AD through Azure AD B2B Collaboration. “Azure AD also uses adaptive machine learning algorithms and heuristics to detect anomalies and suspicious incidents, enabling mitigation or remediation actions, such as multi-factor authentication, to be triggered as appropriate,” the company said.

    Apart from this, the new guest feature comes with the ability for IT to centrally manage how guests participate within their Office 365 environment, providing consistency across application experiences in Office 365, Microsoft said in its post. Notably, the IT admins can easily view, add, or revoke a guest’s access to the host tenant, as per the company’s post.

    Separately, Microsoft has also introduced a new app for Mac as the company has launched a toolbar for Office 365. The new toolbar, called My Workspace, essentially gives users quick and convenient access to their Office 365 apps and features.

    Windows 10 ‘Controlled Folder Access’ to Provide Protection From Ransomware 

    Highlights Certain apps can be allowed through the protection The new feature is seen in preview build version 16232 The new Exploit Protection feature is work-in-progress

    After WannaCry and Petya, it seems like Microsoft has realised the potential harm that ransomware can cause to its operating systems and its customers’ sensitive information. This might partly be the reason why the Redmond-based company has now introduced new features that provide users protection from such malware with the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build.

    Earlier this week, it detailed the end to end security features it would bring to Windows 10, and some of these features have been brought to the preview build.

    With the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build, version 16232, Microsoft has introduced a new feature called ‘Controlled folder access’ to Windows Defender that protects users’ valuable data from malicious apps and threats (including ransomware), Dona Sarkar, head of Windows Insiders program at Microsoft, said in a blog post.

    This new feature essentially monitors the changes that apps make to files in certain folders that are protected. If an app is blacklisted and tries to make changes to files in the protected folders, the user will get a notification about the attempt, Sarkar explains.

    “You can complement the protected folders with additional locations, and add the apps that you want to allow access to those folders,” Sarkar said. In order to switch the Controlled folder access feature, Windows Insiders need to head to the Windows Defender Security Center and go to the Virus & threat protection settings section.

    To allow certain apps through the feature, users need to click Allow an app through Controlled folder access and locate and add the app.

    Apart from this feature, the company has also added ‘Exploit Protection’ with the latest build. “Starting with this build you can now audit, configure, and manage Windows system and application exploit mitigation settings right from the Windows Defender Security Center,” Sarkar said in her post. Notably, Exploit Protection has been described as a work-in-progress and might not be fully function yet, as per the blog post. There were also several improvements to the capabilities of Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG).

    It is good to see that Microsoft is finally responding to the threats to Windows 10 in a constructive manner but the company will have to stay on its feet with the growing capabilities of hackers and leaks of state-sponsored hacking tools.

    Western Digital Gets US Court Order to Access Toshiba Databases, Chip Samples 

    Highlights US court has granted Western Digital permit to access Toshiba’s database Toshiba earlier threatened to lock WD out of the shared databases It also stopped sending Western Digital chip samples

    Western Digital Corp won a temporary US court order on Tuesday saying that Toshiba Corp must allow Western Digital’s employees to access databases and chip samples as part of a joint venture with Toshiba around flash memory chip plants in Japan.

    Toshiba is scrambling to sell its flash memory business and Western Digital is among the bidders.

    In a sign of high tensions around the deal, Toshiba threatened to lock Western Digital out of shared databases and quit sending chip samples.

    Western Digital sued Toshiba in San Francisco County Superior Court saying that its joint venture with Toshiba means Toshiba must get its consent for a sale. It asked the court for two separate orders: An injunction to stop the sale, and a temporary restraining order forcing Toshiba to give its workers access to shared databases.

    A judge granted the temporary order for access to the shared databases Tuesday and set a further hearing on July 28.

    “We welcome the decision of the court, which we believe validates our position,” Western Digital said in a statement.

    Toshiba plans to appeal the ruling, which it believes essentially provides Western Digital access to technical information until the July 28, the company said in a statement.

    “This is a proceeding with many rounds and many rulings, and while we are disappointed with the judge’s ruling, it doesn’t forecast the outcome of this proceeding or those to come,” Toshiba said in the statement.

    A hearing on the injunction to stop the sale is set for Friday.

    Despite the legal tensions between them, Toshiba and Western Digital resumed talks this week. Toshiba also returned to talks with a group led by Taiwan’s Foxconn. The renewed negotiations come after a potential $18 billion sale to Bain Capital and South Korea’s SK Hynix Inc stalled out.

    Toshiba Resumes Blocking Western Digital Access to Chip Joint Venture 

    Highlights Toshiba said it resumed blocking access by Western Digital to data Toshiba earlier allowed WD partial access to shared data servers WD said that it will file a brief against the decision in the coming days

    Toshiba said it resumed blocking access by Western Digital to data at their memory chip joint venture, intensifying its dispute with the US firm over the Japanese company’s planned sale of the chip business.

    Toshiba is counting on the sale of the chip business to cover billions of dollars in cost overruns at its now bankrupt US nuclear unit Westinghouse, while Western Digital says any deal would require its consent.

    Toshiba allowed Western Digital partial access to shared data servers after the Superior Court of California granted a temporary restraining order earlier this month. But the Japanese company said it resumed blocking access after its petition for an appeal was accepted by the California Court of Appeal on Tuesday.

    In response, Western Digital said that it will file a brief against the decision in the coming days.

    The California Court of Appeal issued the temporary stay of the restraining order based only on a brief submitted by Toshiba, and without consideration of Western Digital’s opposition filing, the US company said.

    The next hearing on this case has been set for July 28 in the Superior Court of California.

    Western Digital has also sought an injunction to block the planned chip-business transaction, arguing that any sale required its consent.

    On July 14, the Superior Court of California postponed a decision on Western Digital’s injunction request and proposed requiring Toshiba to give the US company two weeks notice before closing the sale.

    3D Printer Tool Changer Gives You Access to Lots of Extruders 

    The benefits of having a 3D printer with multiple extruders are numerous: you can print soluble support material for easy removal, print a combination of flexible and rigid filament, or simply print in different colors. Unfortunately, traditional multi-extruder setups have some serious drawbacks, even aside from the cost.

    Usually, the extruders are all mounted next to each other on a single carriage. This increases the mass, which can cause print quality issues like shadowing. It also reduces the printable area, as each extruder needs to be able to reach the entire area. All of this means that the design becomes more and more impractical with each extruder you add, and that’s why it’s uncommon to see more than two extruders on a printer.

    Medicare cards likely nabbed through access compromise: Tudge 

    Confidential briefing given to peak doctors body.

    The anonymous vendor selling Medicare card data on the dark web likely obtained the details through a compromise of legitimate access credentials, Human Services minister Alan Tudge has indicated.

    The Guardian yesterday revealed that an unknown individual was offering any Australian’s Medicare card data for around A$29 per file, once the target’s full name and date of birth are provided.

    The vendor claims to have exploited a “vulnerability
