2017 Tech Rewind by Month

Writen by Bryan Ware - January 09, 2018 in Computers
Seems like 2017 went by too quickly. Maybe because of all the new technology coming at us, time just rushed by. Maybe because of  Moores Law - you know, the law that says technology exceeds itself every three months - we were so preoccupied with all the new tech advancements and gadgets, we didn't notice time slipping on by. Whatever the reason, in case you missed it, here is a run-down, per month, of some of the biggest tech news events in 2017.

The FCC repeal of net neutrality rules - what it potentially means for you.

Writen by Diane Ware - December 19, 2017 in Computers
First of all, to summarize quickly, net neutrality basically comes down to a dispute between Internet infrastructure and high-level Internet content providers.   In other words, a dispute between Internet infrastructure major players, such as Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon, and high-level Internet content providers, such as Google, Youtube, Facebook, and Netflix.   Internet infrastructure encompasses the broadband cables and other devices, like routers, servers, switches, etc., which move digital ones and zeros, the basis of...

Fanuc, the robotics company behind the metal casings for iPhones, is accelerating the fear of lost jobs due to robots

Whether or not jobs will be lost due to the greatly increasing trend of manufacturers, and retailers, to use more and more robotic systems to perform assembly and other production duties remains to be seen for certain.  In my opinion, the less jobs available, the less people have the finances to purchase robotic-manufactured products and goods, and so the less money and product demand these companies will experience. They will lose sales. They will lose profits. So this thereby defeats the main purpose they impl...
