Mobile web development, also known as responsive web design, is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries.

Dear Experts,
Recently, one of my clients requested I look into finding him a good combination of rugged tablet and mobile printer for his workers to use on the road. This is his description:
"They need to connect via cellular, not just wifi.
Print load is small – perhaps 6-15 prints a day – 1 or 2 pages per print… but need to withstand dirt and mild abuse.
Tablet will access internet and use web for application they will be using.
That website may integrate with google maps, and they may use it for navigation, and they may use email app on tablet"

My past experience with rugged tablet is only with Fujitsu, which I do not see anymore, and I want to make sure that I select a combination that will fulfill their needs without being too difficult to connect to Internet, Cellular, etc.  I do see some portable printers with battery, such as
Canon Pixma iP110 or HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer, but I do not have any experience using them.
If you could share some working sample combinations, I would greatly appreciate it.

Typing on mobile: some thoughts

I was thinking the other day about smartphones and how I often don't like to type on them. I'm just so used to typing on full-size keyboards, that typing on mobile is like swimming in molasses. And it's really a shame, because in so many other ways, my iPhone is incredibly convenient.

But then, I thought about how speech to text these days is pretty decent, and perhaps the best approach would be to just use Siri for dictation instead of trying to type. I've held off on such things, because I'm old enough (and had enough bad experiences with flaky computer dictation long ago) that psychologically, it feels really weird to talk to a computer.

But in this case, my computer is a phone.

And that means: I feel weird talking to a phone.

Which is kind of weird, don't you think?

What about you? Do you type on your smartphone a lot? Or do you use Siri/Cortana/Google for dictation? Does talking to your phone feel weird or is it totally normal for you?

This morning I was texting on my phone and was asked if I was drunk.   I switched to voice.  It does seem weird but it works. Even at 95% is better than fat finger + auto correct.  I feel like mind control to text is around the corner and that will be a game changer.

How often does your phone accuse you of binge drinking in the mornings?

Our Lync 2013 Server hosts to sip domains.  a.com and b.com

I have an employee who can log in to b.com fine on his computer but not on his mobile device.
Users in both a.com and b.com can log in on both computers and mobile devices, myself included.
I attempted to log in as the problem user on my iPhone and was unable.  

The troublesome user account's sip domain is username@b.com.  
Not sure what is going on.  I tried removing then adding the AD account from the Lync solution via the control panel.
I've compared AD and Lync 2013 account information with a b.com user that CAN log in on a mobile device and they are configured the same way.  

I'm at a loss.

Hey folks. Web design and css is not my day job, more of a side hobby. That said I've been working iteratively on my site for a while now, and have worked myself into a corner when trying to make the site mobile friendly.

Overall I've had pretty good luck taking a two-column dynamic layout I tracked down a few years back and adapting it to mobile. I achieved the dynamic sizing for web with some nested divs that by necessity have a greater width than the window and need to be hidden, though.

On mobile, this only works if I assign overflow-x:hidden; to html,body. If I follow proper procedure and assign it, or the website scrolling setting, to document.body instead (or any other combination therein), the smooth scrolling is broken. I like the smooth scrolling, so even though it cost me the function of tapping the time bar to move to the top of the page, I went with it. It worked, right?

I accepted this compromise until I started to go further and taking my sidebar menus and try to make them fixed position nav menus for mobile. Even that worked fine until I created a logobar that would pop in upon scrolling away from the top of the page. The same compromise that broke "tap to top" has broken any JQuery scrollTop functions I tried to include, on mobile, using a simple enough technique I found here.

Now I have the choice, make any change at all to this css and lose smooth scrolling and gain my logobar and tap to top: as seen in test page 1

I'm trying to understand internals of mobile networks (GSM, 3GPP) and routing calls between them.

When new Mobile Network Operator (MNO) starts its operation, how does other mobile (and fixed) networks all over the world know, how should they route calls to this new network?

Where can I find more information about this topic?

I've got a media query that looks like this:

@media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 991px) {
            .watermark {
            position:absolute;
            margin-left:45%;
            margin-top:28px;
      }

}

As long as we're at 991 px or something within 50 px, it's positioned in the lower right hand corner exactly where I want it to be. But as we get closer to to 768px, it starts to drift closer to the center and it begins to look more and more like a mistake.

Is there a better way to ensure that the watermark stays fixed in the right hand corner? Or, do I have to create additional media queries to accommodate the dimensions within the range of 768 and 991?

I am a single technician managing 7 stores.
I would like to go more mobile via cell phone iPhone.

I'm looking for something that I can create my own forums and have reminders along with documents.

I'm leaning towards making my own in access however if something is better I don't want to recreate the wheel.

In addition since it's just me I don't want it to be costly since it's an employment job. They have there own software however I want to Crete my own flow and ways of doing things we are allowed to do.

Reaching out of other pros see what you use!

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?
When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

Have Exchange 2013 CAS+Mailbox servers = 2 and 2 domain controller. Both have Exchange 2013 sp1. Among two servers primary exchange server holds just the arbitration mailboxes and another one holds all the mailboxes. The owa and ECP access are routed through primary and it was working fine, suddenly OWA stopped working but ECP works fine. Tried recycling the owa application pool and even restarted the primary. But still the same. Couldn't find any specific error for the OWA. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

OWA ERROR :
 The item you tried to access no longer exists.
The item wasn't found. You or a delegate might have moved or deleted it using another computer or a mobile phone.

My OS is win 10 prof 64 bit, and I installed the latest version of iTunes but my mobile phone still did not show up on iTunes.  my mobile is a LG MS323 phone.   I even bought a new usb cable from bestbuy.  During my research I found that I had to install the version 12.1 of iTunes, so I tried to uninstall the  latest version first thru Revo Uninstaller and when that failed thru the Control Panel.  But it looks like there are traces of the latest iTunes left as when I installed the version 12.1 the attached file show the error I got.  
How do I do a clean uninstall of all traces of iTunes, or how do I fix this problem.  Thank  u.

If you keep the mobile phones safe in your pocket or purse, it's still at risk for picking up a virus or leaking data to thieves. Hackers don't need physical access to your phone to steal your personal information or infect the device with malware. They infiltrate your phone with innocent-looking apps or link to it via unsecured Wi-Fi networks. A Technology blogging site (http://www.mobileblog24.com/ ) talking about this problem. Before some days I take my new phone from online shopping site (https://www.buymobile.com.bd/). Some informative site (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ ) also provide disadvantage of hacking. Now I want to know how can protect my mobile phone from being hacked?

We have an Exchange 2013 setup ussing self signed certificates, everything is setup as pretty much bog standard with the exception of mailbox sizes being allowed more than default.

OWA and Mobile access works and 90% of our IPhones work, we have a few that don't.

On the majority of our Iphones when we add the exchange account it comes up with image 1 - Image 1 has 3 buttons and allows us to press details and trust the certificate - once we press details and trust it works.

Image 1: click details and accept
Image 2 shows what a few of our devices do, the continue button is missing and the details button just shows us the certificate with no option to trust it, All of our devices are running the latest ios 10.3.2 and the ones that haven't worked have even had factory resets to see if it resolves the issue.

Image 2: 2.jpg
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Regards

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and I have a LG MS323 phone which I am trying to setup in iTunes.  I downloaded the latest version, and it did not install the phone.  On researching around I saw that i should try the version 12.1 , so I uninstalled all previous versions of iTunes using the software Revo Uninstaller and then downloaded the 12.1 and installed.  The installation went thru but when I tried to load it I got the error as in the attached file, that there was a library already created in a previous version.  But I thought that the Revo would have deleted 'everything' from iTunes and will not leave any traces any where.
Can the experts please suggest a solution to this problem. Thank u.

My OS is win 10 Prof 64 bit and I have the latest version of iTunes.  I also bought a new pc micro usb cable as I think the old was a cheap one and could be the cause.  But with the new cable, the phone which is a LG Model MS323 does not show in iTunes.  My mobile carrier is ultramobile which is a subset of Metro PCS.  
Hope the experts please let me know how to fix this problem.  Thank u

Exchange server 2016  version 15.0 (build 847.32)  with around 300 users.
They are unable to search for mail. It works with cached exchange mode but that doesn't help with not being able to search on mobile devices and OWA.


I went through the steps of stopping the search services and deleting the old index. Its back to corrupted state again..
On ECP it says content  index state: failed and suspended. On the server in the exchange management shell it says corrupted.

- Not sure if this has anything to do with my problem but i looked in database availability groups and I see nothing there. -

What are the main security consideration and risks associated with accessing a web application through a mobile phone? Are there any specific to using a mobile phone rather than a PC/Laptop?

We have an application that is web based, an update to this has added the functionality to access this through a mobile.  I was fairly happy as normally the application would be accessed from PCs/Laptops attached to our network.  However the thought of access through a mobile phone that could be lost or accessed if there is no PIN makes me a bit nervous to how insecure we may now be making the application.

Are there any specific controls I should be checking are in place with regards to mobile access?
