Flash is Gone from Computers

Flash is Gone from Computers

It was 1999 and even though we weren't partying like it was that year I did see something amazing for the first time. A website designer I knew showed me his newest site, it loaded in a mere 20 seconds, and it had amazing "videos" with beautiful graphics moving around, looking very pretty...and it hadn't taken 5 minutes to download.

Big Sur? No Ma’am!

Last week, Apple launched their latest operating system, MacOS 11, named “Big Sur”. Unfortunately, it has been plagued by a host of problems, as Apple enthusiasts have found out first-hand.

Testing of Big Sur has revealed major concerns, one of the largest is that Apple apps now connect to a server to confirm that the use is legitimate. The big problem is that if the Mac device cannot connect to this server for any reason, such as a bad internet connection, or if Apple’s server is down then the computer may not run at all! There are also security concerns related to this, as it bypasses any firewalls, which could possibly be exploited by malicious software.

What will we do differently this year?  How do we prepare?

TP-Link Powerline Internet Solution

Powerline is a way of getting internet from one room of your house to another in the situation where your wireless isn't strong enough and you have no network cabling to use.
