…And Finally

Two really interesting items this week. For those of you who always wanted to have a tricorder, the first iteration is on its way to your phone. It starts out at $249, but I’m betting this will be a standard item on smart phones in not too long. Then you can analyze your pizza for alien life forms: Pocket Spectrometer is the Star Trek Tricorder you Always Wanted, from Epic Times.

And another article fraught with Star Trek implications (data crystals here we come): Scientists have finally discovered massless particles, and they could revolutionise electronics, from ScienceAlert.

Time to Patch!

The British actor David Niven once said: “After 50 it’s just patch, patch, patch”. Technology doesn’t wait until you are 50:

Oracle Critical Patch Update for July 2015

Dear Oracle Security Alert Subscriber,

The Critical Patch Update for July 2015 was released on July 14th, 2015.
Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.

The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes the list of products affected, pointers to obtain the patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities for each product suite, and links to other important documents. Supported products that are not listed in the "Affected Products and Components" section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.

Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information. Critical Patch Update Advisories are available at the following location:

Oracle Technology Network: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/alerts-086861.html

The Critical Patch Update Advisory for July 2015 is available at the following location:

Oracle Technology Network: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/cpujul2015-2367936.html

…And Finally


I’m (finally!) back on iPhone after an unpleasant jaunt into Android telephony and found a weather app I love. It makes use of the built in barometer on iPhone combined with user reporting, radar, etc. to give really accurate predictions on precipitation. I tested it the other day with an approaching thunderstorm and it was accurate on the arrival and intensity of the rain to within a few minutes: Dark Sky update looks to 'revolutionize weather forecasting’ by tapping iPhone sensors, from The Verge.
