Make it Quip
I always thought I was the oral-hygiene expert in the family, but recently my son one-upped me when he introduced me to the Quip Toothbrush. Sure, there are plenty of electric toothbrushes you can buy, but what sets Quip apart is the slim, stylish design of its brushes, and their price is a fraction of their competitors, with electric models starting at $25.
Plus, Quip can send you replacement brush heads in the mail every three months, so you never have to worry about running out or using an overused brush. Happy Brushing!
Windows False Positives
Microsoft has addressed a known issue that plagued Windows Server customers for weeks, preventing the Defender for Endpoint enterprise security platform from launching on some systems. You can install this cumulative update through Windows Update and Microsoft Update, Windows Update for Business, Windows Server Update Services, and the Microsoft Update Catalog.
While Microsoft didn’t reveal what triggered these false positives, the most likely reason was that the company increased the sensitivity for detecting Emotet-like behavior, making its generic behavioral detection engine too sensitive. While it’s never fun when you get a false positive for Malware, it’s good that your Archway techs are always on it!
I’ll Take 5G for $50 Please
For only $50 a month, T-Mobile is offering 5G home internet with no long-term contracts or data caps. If it sounds too good to be true, it almost is. It’s still early days, but depending on where you are located, it could be worth looking into. If it’s speed you’re after, T-Mobile’s 5G home internet might not impress you if you have other cable and fiber internet providers available at your address. But if you’re in a rural area or less developed area where DSL or satellite was your only previous option, T-Mobile will feel lightning fast by comparison.
If nothing else, since it demands no contract commitment, it’s an opportunity to try a different option and maybe even use it as leverage to negotiate with your current internet service provider. Hopefully, the more options we have as consumers, the better our internet service will be in the long run.
