Lecture about p≡p in Luxembourg

Sorry for the bad quality. I'm posting this video because we're missing an English one. This take was done with the mobile phone of Sandro, and I was using my mono headset I'm using for Mumble, recording with iScream. (Thank you, lix, for getting out of this data garbage what could be extracted ;-)

In short, the organizers had no recording in mind, and we were improvising things ;-) The slides are here.

This is Microsoft's proposed “solution” to move data to your server with Outlook 2013

From https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2781261:

"Cannot move the items" error when you move items from an Outlook 2013 client to an EAS store […]

To work around this issue, configure the Outlook Hotmail Connector in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 or in Microsoft Outlook 2010 to move email message items to an EAS store.

The p≡p for Outlook beta test is going to its final stage. Android seems to work now, too – and needs more testing (we wanted to use GnuPG from the Guardian project, but this made too many problems, so it's an own Android port of GnuPG now). We're a little behind with iOS, but, well.

This is reported by German media. See also this report about details (sorry, only available in German language). Max Schrems twittered:

YAY #CJEU on #SafeHarbor: SH invalid. DPC had to investigate. #EUdataP

Here you can find Safe Harbor filings with the Federal Trade Commission as Open Data.
