Most companies are moving to multicloud—about 92%. The latest Flexera State of the Cloud report shows that 92% of enterprises have a multicloud strategy and 80% have a hybrid cloud strategy. Old news.The new news is that most enterprises are attempting to make devops or devsecops work together with multicloud and are running into pretty tough obstacles—namely having to deal with the complexity of the target platforms and considering deployment and cloudops. [ Also on InfoWorld: Applying devops in data science and machine learning ] This manifests as a bunch of problems, such as misconfigurations, over- or underprovisioning, not using the right native services, and even security and operational issues that have to be resolved after deployment.

Image: MSCHF Nike and the internet collective MSCHF have settled their trademark dispute over a run of unofficially modified Satan-themed Nike sneakers. Neither company disclosed the terms of the deal. But it apparently includes an offer to let customers return their $1,018 “Satan Shoes” — or a pair of MSCHF’s earlier “Jesus Shoes” — for a full refund. In a statement to The Verge, MSCHF’s attorneys said they were “pleased” with the settlement over the shoes, which were designed in collaboration with rapper Lil Nas X. “With these Satan Shoes — which sold out in less than a minute — MSCHF intended to comment on the absurdity of the collaboration culture practiced by some brands, and about the perniciousness of intolerance,” the attorneys said. They... Continue reading…

Internet data caps are not like pizza — where taking a slice could mean fewer slices for everyone else. I don’t think Verge readers have trouble understanding this concept? It’s been well-established that ISPs have no trouble delivering unlimited data, even during — say — a global pandemic when vast throngs of the population have suddenly found themselves working from home. This, however, did not stop WideOpenWest (aka WOW!) from using pizza to justify brand-new, possibly-never-before-seen data caps for its cable internet subscribers, starting June 1st, 2021, as Ars Technica reports. Here’s a portion of the email subscribers are receiving: What’s a monthly data usage plan? Let us illustrate … Imagine that the WOW! network is a pizza.... Continue reading…

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Welcome to April. This month began with, frankly, too many brands insisting on making fools out of themselves. But now that the prankster holiday is behind us, we’re focused on deals that are still happening. This has been a fun week to write about deals because a little bit of everything has seen a discount. There have been several deals lately on game subscriptions, so my colleague Taylor Lyles put together a big up-to-date guide to help you find the best prices. Nomad’s Base Station Pro is half off until Saturday night If you have an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods and are still lamenting the fact that the AirPower charging mat never released, check out this deal. Nomad’s Base Station Pro does what the AirPower promised to do —... Continue reading…

Easter weekend is upon us and if you’re lucky, you’ve got four glorious days off work to fill.

Gatherings must take place outside, but you’re allowed to spend time in private gardens. Bringing food? These recipes will help you up your picnic game.Play Ginger’s Big Drag Bingo After a day outdoors, get the Prosecco on ice and prepare for a hilarious bingo-meets-game show night, hosted by drag superstar Ginger.
