    Apple Retail Employees are Struggling

    Apple Retail Employees are Struggling

    There is a pretty bad article out on how Apple treats its retail hourly employees. We know retail can be brutal but it seems some employees are having a very rough go of it.

    One of our GNC family members is having a challenging time. I want to draw your attention to Sam Garcia’s resume. He has significant experience in Web, UI, UX Design, Front End Dev, Product Mgt. He is looking for remote work at this time. He has also setup a GoFundme for those wanting to donate direct.

    Microsoft is once again fighting against companies they have edged out through bundling making it harder for them to compete. There is an ongoing issue with companies that cry they cannot innovate when faced with competition so they go cry to a government agency hoping to get relief.

    Facebook Papers to be Released

    Facebook Papers to be Released

    Facebook papers to be released by Gizmodo and others upon review. Should be a great read to see the inner workings of Facebook. I am back from Hawaii with a hell of a scare on my back all the details on the show and of course, I hope each of you here in America has a great Thanksgiving with your families and be safe out there. I lost a personal family friend to Covid complications so the danger is still out there.

    Russia Blows Up a Satellite

    Russia has blown up a Satellite into thousands of pieces and is recklessly endangering the other orbital satellites and the team on the International Space Station had to go to their capsules for real and hide out because of the idiot moves by the Russian government. This is the ultimate act of stupidity by the communist government and now we have two idiot nations causing harm.

    Apple Legacy Contacts

    Apple Legacy Contacts

    Apple is implementing Legacy contacts as a way for you to designate someone to get access to your iCloud account when you die and have access to that content. I have been pondering many of the questions they seem to be preparing for as folks die and those survivors have no way of accessing pictures and other digital images on their phones etc.

    65 Billion Broadband Plan or Scam

    65 Billion Broadband Plan or Scam

    With the massive infrastructure bill passed will the 65 Billion earmarked for Broadband expansion actually work or will it just be a scam as it has been in the past to get internet service providers essentially a free handout. I am very skeptical that this money will truly help those of us in rural America that have absolutely horrid Internet.
