If you’re in the business/enterprise world, you no doubt interact with or manage a number of Cisco and/or Meraki products, and for good reason. They’re dependable and long lasting. But a certain issue has popped up that appears fairly wide spread and as of right now, it seems like Cisco is trying to keep it as low key as possible (read: sweep it under the rug if they can). The issue, (highlighted here) is a hardware issue revolving around the clock signal component. Long story short – as the affected devices near and cross 18 months of life, they can…

CES is trucking along. That said, take a minute to check out some of yesterday’s more unique unveilings, compliments of TechLaunchPad. CES!

To say there was a lot of new tech unveiled at CES 2017 would be an understatement of epic proportions. That said, there are always some stand out gems and overall cool stuff. This year it is no different. Day 1 of CES saw things such as LG’s crazy thin OLED TV, an under water drone (because flying drones are so 2016), and an odd but unique music creation attachment that can be connected to your phone and interacts with a downloadable app. Day 1 coverage video compliments of TechLaunchPad In addition to the above, the slew of Windows laptops shown…

To a certain degree, Apple’s implied forecast of the future – that iOS and non-traditional OS’ will succeed traditional desktop OS’ such as macOS — is correct. As more and more things move to the web, there becomes less of a need for something like a Mac. That said, there are still key things that while they can be done on a more mobile device or tablet, doesn’t mean they should or that such a scenario will be “the best”. Whatever…

15 inch The Pro-est of the pros, the 15-inch has all the power you could want. Core i7 processors with base speeds of 2.6/27 GHz (Turbo up to 3.6 GHz) up to an optional and upgraded base 2.9 GHz (Turbo up to 3.8 GHz). To be fair, though, the CPU upgrade has rarely been worth it in modern times on Apple’s laptop range. RAM is firmly planted at 16 GB with no upgrade option – a bit disappointing given the $4,000+ plus one could build to order. GPU options come in the form of AMD Radeon 450 or 455…

Today was a big day for Apple fans – iPhone 7 day! While we’ve known for a little while now that the actual physical looks would not be the big “Tick” change that would normally have come at this point, there’s still plenty to like under the hood of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
