ENTREVESTOR: Technology education lacking in schools | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it
Jonathan Robichaud recently completed a private tutorial on writing computer code with Java-Script, and he can’t wait to move on to Python.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

From what I'm hearing writing computer code is missing in schools. The students in our school system seem to agree.

The Apple TV Is About To Get Much Better | Micheal Grothaus | FastCompany.com

The Apple TV Is About To Get Much Better | Micheal Grothaus | FastCompany.com | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it

When the new Apple TV was unveiled last September, it represented a massive leap for the company’s digital media player set-top box, which previously had not seen a significant upgrade since 2012. While the box itself looked basically the same, only thicker, it packed more powerful internals and a game-changing remote called Siri Remote that, yes, brought Siri to the Apple TV, but also made navigation much faster by introducing a touch pad as the primary means of moving around the OS. And speaking of that OS…

The fourth-generation Apple TV ditched the old, closed OS for a completely new OS called tvOS, which is based off iOS. tvOS allows for not just more baked-in features, including Siri search, but opened up the Apple TV platform to developers, allowing them to create apps and games for the Apple TV.

Yet despite its promise, tvOS seemed unfinished, as if it were rushed out to meet a sales deadline. Both developers and users complained about a lack of basic features in the OS along with software bugs. The criticisms of Apple’s software have not been limited to the Apple TV alone as of late, either. As Walt Mossberg penned in an op-ed recently, complexity, feature gaps, and bugs have crept into Apple’s software across devices.
