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.
The people have spoken! They must have Gadget Class!
With all these devices being thrown at us, wouldn’t it be nice to have someone actually show us how to use them? Are we supposed to know this stuff by osmosis or what? (For that matter, nobody ever showed us how to do Taxes either, but that’s another story.)
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.
