Some exciting news is on the horizon for Office 365 users. Changes to the Delve application are about to make finding relevant documents and connecting with colleagues even easier. New, customisable profiles will consolidate relevant documents with professional details, including a contact number, managers and the skills & expertise others might need to borrow you for. With information always on hand, along with Skype chat, calls and email built directly into profiles, communication in large companies will now be even more streamlined and seamless.

After a successful preview program in January, Skype are now rolling out group video calling across iOS and Android systems. New updates will mean video calling can be more mobile and flexible to suit travelling participants. Coming with these new changes will be the option to increase the amount of call members from 5 to 25 and, to give you the best experience, the ability to customise the interface for a grid or focused view will also be included.

Apple have taken the controversial, yet strangely comforting, move to deny the FBI access to the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters. Though you might argue that the iPhone could contain vital information for fighting terrorism in the US, Apple have released a public statement sticking to their values of protecting user rights, which has been backed up by both Twitter and Facebook. The outright refusal for what some might consider an exceptional circumstance prevents the FBI from abusing this allowance in the future, protecting the mobile privacy of the individual. Short of knowing your pass-code, no one’s cracking into your handset.
