Eclipse Photos- She Blinded Me With Science...

Hi, All-

I started out on the deck with this contraption, but soon moved
it out front in the driveway to get away from tree limbs..

This was an idea I stole whole off of the internet. Worked perfectly. It's a 'pinhole viewer'. Expected
image size is 0.01 times the length. It's 6ft of box (72in), so we expected (and got) an image of
abnout 0.72 in width. That's about 3/4 inch. See why this is way better than a crumby old shoe box?
Anyway, it did the job..

The faint crescent you see is our sun coming out of the 80+ percent eclipse seen in the mid-Atlantic
region. At peak time of 2:42PM local, that crescent was real skinny like a new moon. That little 'smile'
just kept getting wider and wider; started to resemble a jack o'lantern smile to me... The moon is
moving away to the right in my reverse image here. Started out a real skinny crescent- it's starting to
get noticeably wider in this shot... 1/16 inch, 1/8 inch, 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch. Eventually I became bored
(and overheated) and went back inside to enjoy the air conditioning. This renews my belief in
science, the universe, and everything. By golly, them scientist guys are the real deal, Martha! Vivid
visual proof of celestial mechanics and what not. (She blinded me with science!)

How to choose the right enterprise mobility management tool

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

It’s almost redundant to refer to a “mobile workforce,” because so much of the workforce today is using mobile devices in some fashion. Managing this large and expanding environment continues to be a huge challenge for IT, and for a growing number of organizations, enterprise mobility management (EMM) is the solution of choice.

Recent industry research shows the expected growth in demand for EMM products, which typically incorporate mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), mobile security and mobile content management. An April 2017 report from The Radicati Group forecasts that worldwide revenues for the EMM market will total $1.8 billion by year-end 2017. This will increase to more than $3.3 billion by year-end 2021, for an average annual growth rate of 18% over the next four years.

How to get Android 8.0 Oreo on your Pixel or Nexus right now

Posted by Computerworld in Computerworld News

I don't know if you heard, but that solar eclipse wasn't the only significant event of the day. Today also marked the official unveiling of Google's Android 8.0 Oreo release — the software previously known only as "Android O" (oh, yes).

While Google's own Pixel and Nexus devices are almost always first in line for a fresh Android rollout, this year's dessert-themed delight isn't actually quite ready to be served to everyone just yet. Google says it's in the midst of "carrier testing" with the Pixel, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P Oreo builds and expects to start sending updates out to those devices soon.
