Imagine that you could ask a question to any company you’re a client of, anytime right in Facebook messenger. For the active users of Facebook Messenger, the number of whom is rapidly growing each day and as of today is 900 million, this would be a super option, don’t you agree?
Grovety Inc. – developing products based on Skype for Business
Our goal was to make search in Skype for business easier, so we did it! Today we want to show you a tip "How to add a contact speed button"
“…Spring 2014. I’m sitting and gazing attentively at the little Lync window icons on my big screen. The craze of mobile technologies cut down the market of desktop applications. Nevertheless, personal computers still dominate in our everyday work, and monitors are becoming bigger. There are even desktops in the offices of IT-leaders: Google, Apple and Facebook, which I visited during my recent trip to Silicon Valley. My company develops software solutions, and I am suffering! We need to come up with an add-on to use the Lync key functions, often buried in the contextual menu. In one click. The task is to think a bit more and arrange an appointment with developers...”
This is how it all began. We developed the Lync Lite app, which eased interactions between contacts. Our add-on for Lync unfolded in full screen as a separate ‘Favorites’ panel. You could add contacts/groups of contacts, which would look like tiles, and move them around the screen as you want. Chat, call, start a video conference with one click. Essentially, Lync Lite was a window with tabs and links, which could launch necessary Lync functions.
Last time we wrote about email accounts being actively hacked and the fact that your personal data is not safe unless it is on your company’s local servers. However, time has shown that it is not that simple, companies’ servers may also be poorly protected and vulnerable to hacking and criminal intervention.
The market of hacked servers may be much bigger than previously thought to be. There is evidence that hackers have sold access to more than 170,000 hacked servers, one third of which is located in the USA.
According to express.co.uk, hundred millions of email accounts are on the black market. It is roughly estimated that around 270 million accounts have been hacked, 24 million of which belong to Gmail, 12 million to Microsoft and 40 million to Yahoo Mail. The rest belong to national postal services (web.de, mail.ru, inmail.sk, etc.).
