Twitter Apps for iOS, the Apple Watch and MacOS

Apple Watch users noticed in September 2017, that Twitter had disappeared from the Apple iTunes App Store, no longer referencing it as compatible with the Apple Watch. In fact, the Twitter Watch App was removed in iOS version 7.8. In my opinion, the Twitter app for the Apple Watch was by far the best Twitter app for the Apple Watch. Although some apps may not be ideal for the Apple Watch, I feel that Twitter’s Apple Watch app was spot on, and for anyone using Twitter, would have been one of their core apps.


MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Causing Finder Crash

After updating to MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2 (from 10.13.1), I found that I could not connect to my NAS unit or other Windows computers on the network without Finder crashing and the inability to relaunch without rebooting my Mac.  Thus far, there is no official fix or definitive answer from Apple for this problem or OS update, leaving many users looking for methods to connect to their NAS and/or Windows servers.

In attempts to make amends for iPhone slow down “misunderstanding.”

The past few weeks have been tumultuous for Apple ever since the company confirmed it slows down iPhones as their batteries age.

Financial institutions & your personal data

If you think your personal data is safe when visiting financial institutions, think again.

According to the German company, eBlocker, which manufactures online privacy tools, there are more than 110 third party trackers snooping on visitors each time they visit 10 of the top financial institutions. Banks are likely to use this data (salary and other personal information entered into forms) in customer risk assessments. Since Congress killed a FCC regulation this year regulating internet providers to ask customers for permission before collecting and possibly selling information obtained from their web browsing habits, VPN's (virtual private network) have become increasingly popular. However, once logged into a site, the VPN may mask the IP address, but will still allow the company to track identifiable personal data.
