For Sale – REDUCED – Apple Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2, AirPort Extreme & Twelve South Magic Wand

Like others, I’m having an Apple clear out to make way for my recent purchases on here

I’ve tried to get on with both but have given up, the mouse especially but I’ve just recently bought a Logitech MX Master 2S mouse which does all I need. No remaining warranty, box or lightning cable with either.

Magic Trackpad 2 – Perfect condition on the top and all ends. On the rear are a couple of marks. One is a single faint scratch towards the top but no matter what I do, I cant capture it. The other is as shown. Obviously neither affect use and aren’t seen anyway! Works perfectly.

Magic Mouse 2 – This is in perfect condition and works perfectly.

Both will come fully charged and will be securely packaged. I’ve used/mislaid the lightning cables so I’m sure you’ll have your own for recharging.

Will consider offers/deals for combinations…

Cheers!

Misconfigured Tor sites leave public IP addresses exposed

The Tor network’s degree of anonymity has come under increased questioning over recent years, and new research found public IP addresses can be connected to misconfigured Tor sites.

Yonathan Klijnsma, lead threat researcher at RiskIQ, a cyber threat intelligence company based in San Francisco, said he found out about the misconfigured Tor sites when crawling the web to associate SSL certificates with the host IP address for the site.

Klijnsma found misconfigured Tor servers that were listening to requests on public IP addresses instead of on the localhost IP address, 127.0.0.1, which is the default address for traffic originating on the same system. Tor servers must listen only on localhost in order to preserve the anonymity users expect from the Tor network and to keep anonymized Tor network traffic off of the public internet.

If correctly configured, an SSL certificate for a Tor site would only be associated with the dark web onion address of that site. But if a misconfigured Tor site listens on a public IP address, the certificate will also become associated with that address. However, it is unclear whether the issue is widespread.

Klijnsma did not respond to requests for comment at the time of this post.

Klijnsma began tweeting about the issue in July in order to make Tor administrators and users aware that sites they expected to be anonymous may not be. And he has even gotten pushback on his research.

Klijnsma’s research isn’t the first to find ways to deanonymize Tor. Researchers previously found that domain-name-system monitoring could be used to identify Tor users. And the FBI notably chose not to disclose a Tor vulnerability it used to find a suspect in a child porn case, leading to the case being dismissed.

Empowering literacy for everyone with free Microsoft Stores workshops |

America has a literacy crisis.

Students, parents and teachers attended a recent literacy kick-off event at Microsoft to see how Learning Tools improve reading.

More than 36 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third grade level. And children whose parents have low literacy levels have a 72 percent chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves. These kids are more likely to get poor grades, display behavioral problems, have high absentee rates, repeat school years, or drop out1.

In a majority of classrooms today, teachers have students reading at up to four different grade levels, trying to keep the same pace on curriculum2.

That’s why Microsoft Store and Microsoft Education are teaming up to offer free workshops this fall, using Microsoft Learning Tools to create dedicated curriculum for those with literacy challenges.

Workshops will be offered at different times throughout the year at all Microsoft Stores in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico, so be sure to check out the local Store programming near you to find the right workshop for your needs. Workshops will be catered to students’ age range, including:

Empowering students affected by Dyslexia

Educators and parents/caregivers working with students of any age; and children in 8th grade or above who are accompanied by an adult, will get hands-on experience with Microsoft applications and tools – including Learning Tools, the Ease of Access menu and accessibility and productivity features of Office 365. Teachers will be empowered to create inclusive classrooms that support students of all abilities, while parents/caregivers will gain skills to support learners outside of the classroom.

The workshop covers why it’s important to create an inclusive classroom, tools to empower different learning styles and abilities, and tools to support students with disabilities.

Boost your reading confidence and literacy skills ages 8-12

This workshop introduces students, with foundational literacy skills, to the Immersive Reader in the OneNote app. Participants will build confidence and improve their reading comprehension through grade-level–appropriate activities with Immersive Reader features. Activities include demonstrations, playing “Mad-Lib” style games, and building and reading stories in pairs to gain hands-on experience using the tools.

Literacy skills for emerging readers ages 6-8

This workshop introduces emerging readers to Learning Tools for OneNote via age–appropriate activities with Immersive Reader features. Activities include discussions, demonstrations, and playing word and story games to gain hands-on experience using the tools. At the end, participants will share what they learned with their parent or caregiver. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn how to build confidence and improve their reading comprehension, and should leave prepared to continue using Learning Tools to further develop reading skills at home and at school.

Two students celebrate during the literacy kickoff event at Microsoft.

With free software like Microsoft Learning Tools and heroic educators like Merlyne Graves, we are encouraged by the progress that’s happening every day. More than 13 million teachers and students are already using Microsoft Learning Tools for free as part of Office 365 Education, including tools like Immersive Reader, Picture Dictionary and Dictation. These are proving to increase reading and writing skill successfully, as evidenced by the recent 3rd party study from RTI International, Leveling the Playing Field with Microsoft Learning Tools.

Through these workshops, we hope to give anyone who may have challenges with reading and writing skills the tools they need to feel empowered and to personalize their learning experience, especially those in underserved communities, or with learning differences like ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia or Autism.

Decoding Dyslexia, a parent-led movement to raise awareness around Dyslexia, is partnering with Microsoft on these workshops. “We need to get technology like Learning Tools into the hands of more students with Dyslexia and other learning differences before they fall behind,” said Rachel Berger, CEO of Decoding Dyslexia, “so I’m excited about the reach Microsoft Stores will have this fall. It’s truly empowering software that can make any classroom more inclusive.”

To kick off the program, Microsoft recently hosted more than 400 students, parents and teachers from across Washington and Oregon to be the first to try the new workshops. The event also included a keynote from former NFL cornerback Robert Tate, who shared his experience with dyslexia at a young age. “My friends didn’t know I had dyslexia,” Robert said. “I would hide within myself and make sure I wasn’t the one putting my hand up to ask questions or the one reading in class. You just have to keep moving forward and never go backwards.”

Ales Holecek, corporate vice president at Microsoft who helped spark discussions that led to Learning Tools, also spoke to the group, telling the audience of parents, teachers and students about his reading comprehension issues that started at a young age and continue today. “I take a long time to read anything and hate emails. I tell my team to send short emails; or better still, come speak to me in person,” said Holecek. For Ales, the turning point came in coding, which he felt operated on a simpler vocabulary.

Mist Systems gives VMware NSX SD-WAN a boost

Arista Networks and VMware, both recent entrants in campus and branch office networking, have made significant moves to add cloud-based Wi-Fi management and analytics to their respective software portfolios.

VMware launched this week interoperability between its NSX SD-WAN and Mist Systems’ machine learning engine for maintaining Wi-Fi performance. Meanwhile, Arista acquired Mojo Networks for the startup’s analytics, which it calls Cognitive WiFi.

Arista’s purchase of Mojo shows the former vendor taking control over its Wi-Fi offering, rather than depend solely on its current deal to offer Aruba wireless products from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, said Bill Menezes, an analyst at Gartner. “[They’re] going to have much more input and control over the pace of tech development.”

The VMware-Mist collaboration, on the other hand, reflects an industry trend of connecting the wireless access layer in remote offices to an SD-WAN product, Menezes said.

“That’s something that most of the major vendors are looking at in one way or another,” he said. “Some of them, like Cisco and Aruba, are developing that capability in-house.”

Mist is providing interoperability between its products and NSX SD-WAN through open APIs. As a result, the combined products deliver to IT administrators “end-to-end visibility and insight into users, application and network performance for LAN and WAN,” the companies said in a statement. Other features include trend detection and recommendations to avoid problems, and event correlation and anomaly detection for fault isolation and remediation.

Mist combines big data and machine learning to track user behavior on Wi-Fi and ensure network performance. The company’s machine learning engine will help NSX SD-WAN analytics by gathering more than 100 different user states from access points (APs).

Metrics gathered by Mist technology include the time it takes an AP to connect to devices and the number of failed attempts. The system can also collect roaming data, such as when a mobile device switches APs to take advantage of a stronger signal or leaves an AP that’s dropping too much data.

Mist will also add to NSX SD-WAN anomaly detection for APs, mobile devices, operating systems and applications connecting to Wi-Fi. Mist and VMware will sell their products separately through joint channel partners.

In 2017, VMware entered the market for branch-office networking with the acquisition of software-defined WAN vendor VeloCloud. In May, VMware extended its virtual networking software, NSX, to remote offices through integration with VeloCloud, which the company renamed NSX SD-WAN. Combining the technologies made it possible for VMware customers to use NSX for policy-based network management across the data center and branch.

Arista acquires Mojo

The VMware-Mist collaboration came nearly a week after Arista said it would acquire Mojo for its cloud-based software focused on network analytics and management. The acquisition, which Arista expects to close by the end of September, is the company’s first. Arista did not release financial details.

Arista announced the Mojo acquisition roughly three months after introducing its first switches for the campus LAN. Available in the fall, the 7300X3 and 7050X3 spline switches are 10/25/40/50/100 Gigabit Ethernet gear equipped with telemetry and monitoring features designed to help network operators  diagnose performance problems.

Arista acquired Mojo for its machine learning and big data platform. The Cognitive WiFi system tracks more than 300 key performance indicators, Gartner said in its latest Magic Quadrant for the Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure. The research firm listed Mist and Mojo in the visionary quadrant of the report.

As a campus network supplier, Arista needed more than just technology for the wired LAN, Arista CEO Jayshree Ullal told financial analysts during a recent conference call. That’s because a growing number of Arista customers are turning to Wi-Fi as it approaches multigigabit speeds.

“What we bought Mojo for was their Wi-Fi, their Cognitive WiFi, and the software capabilities associated with the access points [Mojo provides],” Ullal told analysts, according to a transcript on the financial site Seeking Alpha.

Arista plans to  merge Mojo technology with its CloudVision network management software that combines cloud computing, big data and machine learning. The product collects and archives network state and runs a suite of applications against the data to provide visibility, automate the deployment of network components, and analyze and report on incidents.
