Little Things from Big Announcements

Little Things from Big Announcements

Today, Apple had an event where it announced some things. Little things.   First and foremost, Tim Cook started by talking about Apple’s dedication to privacy, and not-so-gently hinted at his disappointment in the government’s requests (and responses) for Apple’s assistance.

Two giants of the tech world – Apple and Cisco, recently released a document that seemingly wrote off one of the most common aspects of wireless technology: the 2.4GHz WiFi band.   It’s important to note that the claim is primarily focused on large, enterprise grade networks.

The Minneapolis (and arguably midwest) ad scene would never be where we are without him. Perhaps unbeknownst to …

Updates Available? Think Twice.

However you describe it, it comes down to this: compatibility issues.   Take ‘El Capitan,’ (OS X 10.11), the latest version of the Mac desktop OS for instance.
