Connect Amazon Echo (Alexa) to IFTTT

IFTTT makes the possibilities practically endless for what you can do with an Amazon Echo running Alexa. IFTTT provides workflows that connect Alexa to many of the most popular cloud services on the Internet. For example, Alexa can make a spreadsheet of all the songs you listen to using your Prime account, Email you a shopping list, sync To-Dos to Evernote, find your phone, set reminders on your phone, extend Alexa to manage your TV using Harmony, run Wink shortcuts, print files, manage a Wemo bulb (Belkin), control otherwise unsupported thermostats, control items within apps (e.g. make all your Hue lights a given color), time things (e.g. turn on the air conditioning for an hour), lock a door using an otherwise unsupported lock (e.g. with a Smarthings), do random things (e.g. assign a random color to a Hue light), interface with Google Calendar, and so much more.
Basically, if a service can interact with IFTTT using an API, then your Alexa can be made to talk to it. But... | Read more »

Manage Alarms On Amazon Echo

One of those fun things that Alexa can do is set alarms for you. I usually sleep around 4 or 5 hours a night, so no amount of alarms is enough to roust me out of bed. Therefore, adding Alexa on my Amazon Echo to the extensive list of alarms I have around my house is welcome. Let’s look at some things you can tell Alexa to do for ya’, when it comes to alarms. First, let’s set an alarm for noon:
“Alexa, set an alarm for noon tomorrow.”
Alexa will then repeat back the alarm she just configured. Now, let’s setup a repeating alarm for every Tuesday morning at 6am:
“Alexa, set an alarm for every Tuesday at 6am.”
Now, let’s check a list of all the alarms running on your Amazon Echo account:
“Alexa, list my alarms.”
If an alarm for tomorrow is at 11am, we can then delete it using:
“Alexa, delete the 11am alarm for tomorrow”
To snooze an alarm, just say:
“Snooze”
You can also ask about what alarms you have for a given day. So that... | Read more »

Play Audible Books On Your Amazon Echo

The Amazon Echo is a great device for accessing content using a Prime membership. But the Echo is also useful for media that isn’t sourced from Prime. One of these is Audible, which makes sense, given that Audible is owned by Amazon. I found that my Audible account was around before it was linked to an Amazon account with Prime. In order to link the account, I needed to open the Alexa website and link my Audible account. To do so, open http://alexa.amazon.com. Then click on Music & Books in the sidebar.

Then click on Audible and either you will see your Audible books, or you will be able to provide an Audible username and password. Once authenticated, you’ll see a list of books from your Audible account.

Block Specific iOS Versions From Accessing Exchang...

Exchange Online and Exchange 2010-2016 can block a device from accessing ActiveSync using a policy. To do so, first grab a list of all operating systems you’d like to block. To do so, first check which ones are out there using the Get-ActiveSyncDevice command, and looking at devicetype, deviceos, and deviceuseragent. This can be found using the following command:
Get-ActiveSyncDevice | select devicetype,deviceos,deviceuseragent
The command will show each of the operating systems that have accessed the server, including the user agent. You can block access based on each of these. In the following command, we’ll block one that our server found that’s now out of date:
New-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule -Characteristic DeviceOS -QueryString "iOS 8.1 12A369" -AccessLevel Block
To see all blocked devices, use
Get-ActiveSyncDeviceAccessRule | where {$_.AccessLevel -eq 'Block'}
If you mistakenly block a device, remove the block by copying it into your... | Read more »

TA16-144A: WPAD Name Collision Vulnerability

Original release date: May 23, 2016
Systems Affected
Windows, OS X, Linux systems, and web browsers with WPAD enabled
Overview
Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) Domain Name System (DNS) queries that are intended for resolution on private or enterprise DNS servers have been observed reaching public DNS servers [1]. In combination with the New generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) program’s incorporation of previously undelegated gTLDs for public registration, leaked WPAD queries could result in domain name collisions with internal network naming schemes [2] [3]. Collisions could be abused by opportunistic domain registrants to configure an external proxy for network traffic, allowing the potential for man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks across the Internet.

Manage ActiveSync Policies on iOS Using Powershell...

Sometimes you need to manage policies in Exchange ActiveSync programmatically. For example, if a device shows up in a JSS, you can deploy policies to that device at the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) level rather than using a mobileconfig. To manage these, Microsoft has provided a few pretty easy-to-use commandlets in Powershell.

  • The New-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will create a policy based on some attributes that you define.
  • The Get-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will show what the contents of a given policy are.
  • The Set-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet will set a policy, and has the same structure s the New-MailboxDeviceMailboxPolicy, but applies to existing policies.
  • The Remove-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will delete a policy.
  • The Get-MobileDeviceMailboxPolicy commandlet in Powershell will show all the devices that are associated with a given user.

Quotes in InfoWorld Article About Careers

I love being asked questions about career trajectories. I alway preface my answers with the fact that it’s just my reaction to things and I’m weird and maybe not everyone agrees. I recently provided some answers about careers of developers, from the perspective of a hiring manager. Luckily there are others that answered more intelligently than I! So, feel free to read the article here.
