A Commentary On Changing Technology by Mitch Santell
The New World Order is already here, and I always know this whenever Apple, Inc. is having one of their “big meetings.”
Today it was a trip as I literally had to spend the entire day resetting my Administration Password on my MacBook Air. My laptop is running macOS High Sierra while my iMac is using the latest version of Mojave.
Of course, Apple will always tell you these systems are compatible with each other, but at the end of the day, they are not.
Next? The Wifi wouldn’t work right so I had to go into my closet and pull out my old Apple WiFi Unit from 2013.
I’ve placed a picture of it here so if you haven’t seen it, you can check it out.
Next? Thank goodness I am a patient man because then I had to check the MacBook Air’s Wi-fi (via my iPhone) to make sure that the Laptop’s Wi-fi would still work. It checked out perfectly and yet even my “Cox Wireless Modem” still could not recognize my MacBook Air without the old router plugged in and streaming.
The world we live in is 2 stage authentication. Apple makes this process easy, and it still feels like I am making a doctors appointment as each device checks every other device.
This is my “best guess,” as to what I think happens.
So you have millions and millions of users who use various systems on their desktop or their laptop and then there is the iPhone which as my dear friend Tom always says “is like having a MacBookPro in your pocket.
After that? There is always the issue of “Security Updates,” and of course, we never know when Apple will notify us about that except it always seems to be before their Big Event.
Yes, I use an iPhone 7plus and have not had one reason to upgrade it.
The best way that I have found to simplify the Apple experience is to text message off my Mac.
What was the best part of today?
After all this craziness starting at about 10 AM today, I finally had everything updated and working and back to “normal.” Of course, what is normal right?
My Apple Wireless Router is now back in my closest, the MacBook Air is now working correctly, and of course, since I also have an iCloud account, I didn’t lose any of my family photos or videos or pictures.
Parting shot: Who can still tell the truth?
Yes, this may look like a joke when you hear it and laugh, but there is a lot of truth here from Bill Burr.
