iPad 4 given a new lease on life

Greg-Gazin-Senior-EditorEDMONTON, AB, Mar 18, 2014/ Troy Media/ – When Apple introduced the iPad Air in November 2013 it discontinued the fourth generation iPad but retained the iPad 2 which was originally introduced three years earlier as their entry level full sized tablet. Well it seems that the iPad 4 or appropriately called iPad with Retina display has been given a new lease on life as the iPad 2 is put out to pasture.

While not as sleek, light and powerful as the new iPad Air, the iPad with Retina display is still a decent and reasonably current product, especially now that it is priced the same as the affordable iPad 2 it replaces.  READ FULL STORY at TROY MEDIA

Gold Card

While it has only been a year, but it seemed to be a long time coming as the world anxiously awaited the arrival of a new iPhone. Critics said Apple was way behind and quickly losing market share, but after the first weekend, when the dust settled, Apple sold a record breaking number of new iPhone 5S and 5C models in just 3 days after its initial launch this past Friday, September 20th.

“This is our best iPhone launch yet―more than nine million new iPhones sold―a new record for first weekend sales,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”

Analysts had predicted that the company would sell 5-6 million iPhones in the first weekend, but easily surpassed that figure.

Evernote resets all user passwords after security breach

EvernoteWarning

At least every second day I get a security alert supposedly from my bank or some other service notifying me that something has gone awry and that I must sign in to fix the problem. More often than not there’s a link embedded in the email that I’m urged to click on immediately. Thus far, virtually all of them have been phishing expeditions by less than scrupulous individuals in an attempt to defraud me. However, one that arrived today from Evernote’s Operations and Security Team is real.
