b2ap3_thumbnail_QuickTime.jpgThe Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has recently released a statement informing those who use the Windows Operating System of security vulnerabilities related to Apple’s QuickTime application for Windows. While no threats or infections have been reported in relation to this vulnerability, it has been recommended by the DHS that any QuickTime application be removed from a Windows environment. If you have a Mac PC or Apple device with QuickTime installed there is no risk and no need to remove it. Apple chose NOT to release critical security updates to the QuickTime for Windows application, resulting in the vulnerabilities originally reported by Trend Micro. If you are unsure if you have QuickTime for Windows or would like to speak with a technician regarding this threat call (570) 321-7370 or visit our office at 31 Ashler Manor Drive in Muncy, PA and we would be happy to look over the PC for you.

As always, diagnostics are free at Intrada! Virus/Malware Removals start at just $69.95!

b2ap3_thumbnail_AHCFlogo.jpgThe Army Heritage Center Foundation, in cooperation with the U.S. Army and our other partners, serves as the lead agency supporting the development and expansion of the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC). The Center is being developed to preserve the memories of Soldiers and their Families, honor their service, and help educate the American public about the Army and its’ Soldiers’ contributions to the Nation.

The Foundation was incorporated in 1999 as the Military Heritage Foundation after Secretary of the Army Louis Caldera committed the Army to, “the establishment of an Academic Research Facility and Army Museum at the United States Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania.” Since its establishment, the Foundation has been the catalyst in forging the unique public-private partnership that has advanced the Center. Then, after Secretary of the Army Thomas White announced the creation of the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in October 2001, the Foundation assumed doing business in the name of the Army Heritage Center Foundation. The intent of the name change was to more closely align the Foundation’s efforts to the development of the Center.

Intrada took over site management and support in 2008, when the site was not maintained correctly causing some security concerns. Working with the staff to stabilize and update different functions, allowed Intrada to learn more about the Army Heritage Center Foundation. A tour of the facility, including the education center and museum, was amazing.

Intrada was asked to research and create a solution to address the high bounce rate the site was receiving. Intrada also took this as an opportunity to upgrade the webstore and site to a responsive template supporting mobile friendly standards. The site launched in early December and staff is pleased with the new look and functions.

The Monthly “Steal” by David Steele

The Monthly “Steal” is a bit of relevant technology information intertwined with personal thoughts, opinions and some real life experiences. It is written by David “Steele” and is free, hence a “steal” from a “Steele”.

David Steele SpeakingOver the years, I have taught several clinics, lunch and learns, training seminars and presentations from web strategies to network security and HIPAA compliance training. Our sister company, PRworks, a communications and public relations company, pushes me to continually work to improve my presentation skills. I have been working with Bob Saline, CEO of PRworks, for over 15 years and I value his honest, experienced and strategic comments. I want the feedback so I can improve, because I have sat through some agonizing presentations. But, sometimes feedback is painful, like when I found out I had a verbal pause. At first I didn’t believe it or even understand what Bob was saying because I knew I didn’t have whatever Bob said I had. Bob then softly tried to break my pride and told me that most people don’t even know they have a verbal pause. SO, I asked, what is my verbal pause? “So”. So what? “SO” is your verbal pause, David”. So then I paused to comprehend. Bob explains that when I’m between topics or getting ready to move to a different step, I start the section by saying “SO”.

CONSEQUENTLY, I was made aware of my verbal pause and at the next event I started catching myself verbally pausing all the time. That was a hard habit to break and the hardest part was not replacing the verbal pause with something else. I asked Bob what I should do and he said, “Just shut up, David” – more honest feedback from the heart.

THEREFORE, I’m now on the path to quietly pausing when I’m gathering my thoughts. As I get older, the pause sometimes is lengthy and I hear jeopardy theme music in my head. I found that replacing my “SO” with “’Do you have any questions?” gives me time to think and is usually is a good time to pause. I was so proud of myself the first time I tried the question in place of “SO”. I answered the question, then continued with, “SO, let’s move on”. BUT, now I find myself listening to other speakers, teachers, preachers and politicians to see if they have a verbal pause. When I hear one, it’s like a large bell going off in my head. I start marking down a dashe each time I hear the pause and counting them like I will get a prize at the end. I blame Bob Saline.

David Steele SpeakingSUBSEQUENTLY, I’m going to continue to work on my #Silence and let you know – It’s OK to shut up. It’s like white space on your home page and you know that too many words can be bad.

HENCE, do you have a verbal pause? Common pauses include so, um, ah and you know? Find a Bob Saline that you respect to give you honest feedback and hold you accountable. Also – ask for feedback. I have a rule of thumb that has helped me with comments or suggestions. If someone makes a comment that offends me, then usually it’s true and I just don’t want to admit it, so I work on it. Other times, you know the person is just being, well, stupid, and I move on. We might laugh about it over dinner. Be careful, pride driven presenters are shadowed by humility, not knowledge or experience. It’s a great time to build a relationship with a new prospect. If you are interested in learning more about Intrada, give me a call or email me today.

(Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) is set to launch two new iPads and release the next version of its Mac operating system at its next event on Oct. 21, a Daily Dot report said, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The company plans to unveil the sixth generation of its iPad and the third edition of the iPad mini, as well as its operating system OS X Yosemite, which has undergone a complete visual overhaul, the Internet news website said.

The iPad is expected to have a 9.7 inch screen, while the new version of the iPad mini will have a 7.9 inch screen, Bloomberg earlier reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Apple also unveiled its Apple Watch, two larger iPhones and a mobile payments service dubbed "Apple Pay" last week.
