Apple is making big changes to how it builds software so iOS 14 might be less buggy

%name Apple is making big changes to how it builds software so iOS 14 might be less buggy by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Following the calamitous launch of iOS 13 this year, Apple reportedly plans to overhaul the way it develops and tests software updates in the future. According to Bloomberg, Craig Federighi, Apple SVP of software engineering, recently held a meeting with the company’s software developers to announce the changes.

As the report explains, Apple’s development process was a mess prior to these changes. As recently as iOS 13, some teams would add new features to the latest build on a daily basis, while other teams would add features weekly. Many of these features would not be fully tested or functional, which meant “testers would go days without a [usable] build, so they wouldn’t really have a handle on what’s working and not working.”

It turns out that mysterious new Sony invention has nothing to do with the PS5

%name It turns out that mysterious new Sony invention has nothing to do with the PS5 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

A few days ago, a Sony innovation was uncovered thanks to a patent filing that showed illustrations of a device that looked like a video game cartridge. At the time we thought Sony might be working on a second console, other than the highly anticipated PlayStation 5. In the days that followed, we saw speculation that said the cartridge might actually be a modular SSD storage solution that would help Sony keep the PS5’s price in check, and we explained why that might be a great idea. It turns out the mysterious invention is indeed a storage cartridge, one that Sony briefly featured in a product video for a new device that you can’t even buy yet. But there’s a big twist: It’s not the PS5.

SpaceX’s shiny new Starship just blew up – watch the video right here

%name SpaceX’s shiny new Starship just blew up – watch the video right here by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

A cryogenic pressure test resulted in an explosion of a SpaceX Starship prototype in Texas on Wednesday. The blast produced a huge cloud of vapor that continued to pour out of the vehicle for several minutes. The unfortunate incident was caught on camera by enthusiasts who were filming the Starship test vehicle from afar.

Starship is perhaps SpaceX’s most exciting project to date. The company envisions versions of the Starship vehicle being sent to other worlds, including Mars, but first, it has to get off the ground. The prototype that blew its top was slated to begin short test flights soon, but the timeline will now have to be pushed back a bit.

Don’t wait until Black Friday to get awesome deals on Lenovo ThinkPad laptops

%name Don’t wait until Black Friday to get awesome deals on Lenovo ThinkPad laptops by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Black Friday deals are all about slashing prices and selling amazing electronics for a fraction of the cost. But what if we told you about a deal that was so good, it started almost two weeks early? In anticipation of Turkey Day, Lenovo wants you to be able to shop online by letting you buy your electronics before Black Friday even arrives.

Right now, Lenovo is offering some of the top deals you’ll see all year on the best selling business laptop ever: the ThinkPad. With this sale, you’ll have a ton of laptops to choose from as you’ll be able to get up to 53% off ThinkPad laptops, starting at $251.40! That’s right, you’re saving more than half off the regular price of a premium computer just for participating in this deal.

If you’ve been in the market for a new laptop and want a durable, reliable and fast laptop, you can’t do much better than a ThinkPad. Lenovo recognizes that and on top of the 53% off ThinkPad laptops, they are also offering 45% off most X and T series ThinkPad laptops starting at $763.95!

The X series is known for its epic battery life and ultra portability, so you can keep it in your bag and bring it with you wherever you need to go without having to worry about finding an outlet immediately. If you want superior performance in a lightweight design, you should take a look at the X1 Carbon Gen 7 or 6. If amazing graphics is a characteristic you’re dying for, then the X1 Extreme Gen 2 ad 1 could be right for you. For those who want the versatility of a 2-in-1 device, take a look at the X1 Yoga Gen 4/3/2/1.

The T series is Lenovo’s flagship line of laptops and will have you covered just about anywhere. For those looking for super fast speeds from their USB-C ports, this is the line of laptops for you. The sleek yet sturdy design of the T590 makes it one of the top new laptops on the market. You won’t be disappointed with any business laptop in the T series, as you’ll be able to choose from the T495/495s, T490/490s, T580, T480/480s, and T470/470s. All of these feature unbelievably long-lasting batteries and easy configuration, so you’ll be ready to work in seconds.

Now, while the X and T series are both fantastic in their own right, Lenovo is offering even more deals during this sale. The next deal offers you 40-50% off E series ThinkPad laptops, starting at $629.40! This opens up even more possibilities for you to save and come away with sweet tech. Perfect for small business owners, the E series is known for its security and privacy settings. You’ll be amazed at how the E490 and 490s protect your information and how reliable the E595 is. For those looking to handle video conferencing, the E590 can’t be beat.

With these kind of deals, it’ll be hard to find reasons not to take advantage of this amazing pre-Black Friday sale. Make sure you head over to Lenovo’s website and when you’re checking out, use the promo code THINKSGIVING (get it?) to receive these great deals on ThinkPads. The THINKSGIVING sale runs through November 30, but don’t worry, as Cyber Monday deals are right around the corner, with the promo code THINKCYBER running through December 8. Get the deal that you want right now, thanks to Lenovo.
