Facebook at Work, an enterprise version of the social network, is designed specifically for colleagues in organizations to communicate; which has been in closed beta since January, but now opened up for businesses that want to connect employees securely.

Albeit, the company has been tinkering with Facebook at Work internally for years, it surfaced that the office tool is for external organization only recently.

The service is rather a basic, but more secure version of Facebook to be employed on an enterprise network, whereby employees can follow/friend each other to get updates posted by each user.

Now, with more than 300 organizations signed up for Facebook at Work as part of the beta, Facebook though intending to make a little money from the new product has maintained that businesses will start with the free version and only pay for extra features or analytical services.

However, it’s unclear at the moment the number of employees, for instance, that a company is allowed on-board with the service, or if they’ll be charged extra to create a large number of groups.

Facebook at Work has a standalone app for iOS and Android, while on the desktop, users are able to toggle between their professional and personal Facebook accounts.

Yahoo suffered a major breach in 2014, which led to the leakage of many users' email addresses and passwords online. The company has lately been tinkering with log-in features to replace the password, given that most of the breaches had stemmed from the humble password.

The Internet giant earlier launched a service that auto-generates a short password, which it sends to a user's phone at any log-in session, though closely tied to two-factor authentication, it differs as no initial password is required .

And as a step up, the company has extended this to its Mail app with a feature called Yahoo Account Key, which uses push notifications to provide a quick and simple way to access Yahoo account using mobile device.

Dylan Casey, Yahoo's vice president of product management, yesterday said at a press event in San Francisco that they're going to kill the password altogether.

Albeit, Yahoo's process is a take-on the common two-factor authentication, whereby a user has to first enter a username and password, before a message is sent to phone for completion of log-in, it works minus the initial factors.

If a user loses or smartphone is low on power, he/she can still log in using traditional username and password.

To get started, you'll need to turn on Account Key, and register your smartphone. While on opening the app you'll be sent a push notification. And simply clicking on the notification gets you verified. The Account Key is now available globally on iOS and Android.

Yahoo rethinks two-factor authentication: Is this end of the Password?

Microsoft HoloLens is untethered holographic device, enabling high-definition holograms to integrate with the real world. It is part of the Windows Holographic AR Platform incorporated into Windows 10 OS, which unlock all-new ways to connect, create, collaborate, and explore.

The wireless headset is able to project high-definition virtual content or holograms over real world objects, and works with apps developed for the technology; including Skype, Office and gamification.

It features high-definition 3D optical head-mounted display, with advanced sensors to allow interaction with AR applications through head movements, gestures and voice command.

Microsoft, however, believes that Windows Holographic project will be the future of computing, while bringing the digital experience into the analogue world.

Albeit, the potential of the HoloLens is enormous, but the real sizzle didn’t quite match the buzz generated. For instance, using HoloLens to play a game of horror genre, is not only terrifying, but capable of some psychological aftereffect.

The onus, therefore falls on the developers, if they can create apps with worthwhile experiences, HoloLens might perhaps be the next way to consume contents. And as Microsoft chirped, it belongs to the future - until we get there.
