Everything Apple changed and who should upgrade

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled four iPhone 12 models: the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

How The Landscape Of Raising Funds Has Changed For Startups In A Post-Covid Era

Founder & CEO at DX Medical Solutions, creating healthcare systems for a better tomorrow.

This year has taken everyone for a loop. Regardless of anyone’s 2020 plans, the Covid-19 pandemic has changed everything. The virus outbreak has strongly affected businesses, closing some and forcing changes in many day-to-day operations for corporations, as well as the startups and small businesses that have survived the roughest periods of Covid-19.

Private investors and venture capitalists (VCs) in particular are reconsidering how they choose to contribute to startups, for better or for worse. Many have decided to invest in their current portfolios rather than beginning business partnerships with new companies. It’s important to understand these changes because they will have lasting implications on the fundraising landscape for both investors and founders.

Last year at the end of the second quarter, things looked pretty different according to

The CRISPR story: How basic research discovery changed science

When Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier embarked on the project that would change science and medicine in incalculable ways, their intentions were much more muted. Theirs was a basic research inquiry into bacterial immune systems, not an attempt to develop a new tool to manipulate the genetic code.

Yet their discovery of the CRISPR-Cas9 editing complex, recognized Wednesday with the Nobel Prize in chemistry, has ignited what even scientists allergic to hyperbole routinely call a revolution in how science is conducted. Researchers and companies are regularly discovering new applications in agriculture, diagnostics, and therapeutic development.

COVID-19 changed the way we approach technology | Feature Columnist

In the initial chaos of COVID-19, everyone had to adjust quickly to new ways of interacting with technology.

The pandemic impacted every area of life from work, to community involvement to parents providing virtual learning assistance with school and even our leisure time. The learning curve may have seemed steep at times, but it will have a lasting impact on how technology integrates into our daily lives.

  • Working remotely: Social distancing, essential business designations and school and daycare closings forced many Rocky Mount employees to work from home. Remote communication technology suddenly became a necessity as companies scrambled to adjust. Organizations that previously balked at using Facebook now gave regular updates through social media. This rapid shift pushed leaders to create new ways to support employees virtually, and to re-evaluate the previously accepted norms of work hours and benefits across many industries.

In May, just two months after its workforce

Google Just Forever Changed How We Find Each Other and Not Entirely in a Good Way

On Tuesday, Google published a blog post to announce it was “giving everyone, everywhere an address.” That sounds very generous of the company, though it’s worth considering what that really means. Obviously Google runs the largest map service on earth, and it isn’t even close. Clearly it has a motivation to bring a standardized way of locating places since Google Maps is the default way many people get directions every day.

In that sense, Plus Codes, which is what Google is calling this new feature, is a good thing. According to Google:

Plus Codes use latitude and longitude to produce a short, easy-to-share digital address that can represent any location on the planet… A Plus Code can easily be used where no addresses, street names or even streets exist today.  Someone in an area without addresses no longer needs to give out complicated instructions to find a home or workplace–like

ACMA survey highlights how COVID-19 changed Australia’s online behaviour

Australia’s reliance on the internet and communication services grew significantly for the six months to June 2020, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) 2020 annual consumer survey has revealed.

It showed that 99% of Australians accessed the internet, an increase from 90% of Australians who accessed the internet during the same period last year.

The survey suggested the increase in online activities was likely driven by the COVID-19 restrictions that were introduced in March 2020, given that there were no significant changes from 2018 to 2019.

Emailing, web browsing, banking, and watching videos remained the most popular online activities during the six months.

How A Break From Lord Sugar Changed The Fortunes Of This Young Entrepreneur

It takes hard work, determination, and talent to achieve startup success, but getting an early break from a major business leader like Lord Alan Sugar can be a real game changer, as entrepreneur Ross Testa, founder of video and social media agency 3 Heads Agency discovered.

At school, Testa had no idea where his future career lay. While his friends pursued predictable routes into law, medicine, and journalism, he admits that his plans were non-existent. Everything changed when, aged 18, he decided to organize a charity week at school to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust after one of his closest friends, Ellis Haggith, was diagnosed with leukemia.

He says: “I was determined to make it a success, and it was: the campaign raised just under £5,000 in one week. We had support from a lot of businesses and celebrities, and the experience made

25-Year Anniversary: How Windows 95 Forever Changed Personal Computing | Tech Buzz

Last week was the 25th anniversary of the biggest and most critical launch in computing history. Steve Jobs was on a forced hiatus after being fired from Apple, and that platform wasn’t doing well. OS/2 the supposed successor to DOS/Windows, wasn’t selling well either, and DOS/Windows was way out-of-date and aging poorly.

Then Windows 95 was promised and the year running up to the launch was a fantastic mix of media showcases, previews, speculation and excitement. From the standpoint of lines and demand, nothing that preceded the product even came close, and even after the launch, only Apple has been able to drive the same level of excitement — but not for an operating system, only for complete hardware.

The launch year was an essential point in the history of the PC that changed the market forever. It also made my career for which I’m eternally grateful. Let’s talk about
