From June 13 - 17, Apple will be holding its annual WorldWide Developers Conference. This conference gives Apple a chance to connect with software and hardware developers and demonstrate new features in its upcoming products.
What does that mean for us mere mortals? Oodles of new stuff!
While Apple tends to hold its cards close, the expected updates include a new Os X (possibly to be renamed “macOS”), a new iOS for iPhone/iPad, a new watchOS, and a new tvOS (for AppleTV). For Os X, the crystal ball says look for Siri to finally come to the Mac.
The hardware predictions are a little sketchier. ‘Maybe” a new MacBook Pro Retina, a new Mac Pro, and/or a new Mac Mini. A new Thunderbolt Display is an outside chance as well.
What would you like to learn?
I have been fielding a lot of questions recently about whether I teach classes on Macs. The answer is yes, and the time has come for me to put it together!
I am trying to determine the scope and form of the classes. I am thinking that it won't be 'just' about Macs, but about our Digital Gadgets in general.
To help me in planning, please take this poll. Thanks!
If you are looking to have a new website built,
then I'd like to tell you about Joomla!
Joomla! is a one of the most popular website platforms today. Joomla! is a CMS or "Content Management System". It is open-source, free software. It is standards compliant and mobile device friendly.
Mobile-friendliness, also called 'Responsive Design' is more than just a convenience. These days it is a necessity, because more and more people are visiting websites on their phones and tablets. It will really help your Google rankings. Last year saw the infamous 'Google Mobile-geddon'; when Google changed the way it ranks websites, favoring those that are Responsive. So if your site is not responsive, odds are that it will not see page one in search results.
Part of my work in Web-related services is as Webmaster for PVMA Deerfield.
For some time we have been looking to migrate to a new machine two of our most important sites, American Centuries and Raid on Deerfield: The Many Stories of 1704. Our current Dell machine is 13 (!) years old, and while it is still operational, we know that it's days are numbered. Of even more concern was the aging server software running on it.
