Darlene Clapham K12's insight:
I purchased the Bose Soundlink Mini II for my summer wireless listening entertainment and very happy with this speaker. Great sound for the backyard, cottage and virtually anywhere that you have access to your tunes on mobile device or PC. If I use my PC, I can play all my iTunes music from both my home stereo system (connected to Apple TV) and wireless speaker at the same time, which means that we have room to room and outside audio in sync. The Bose Soundlink Mini II has great sound quality for such a small mobile speaker. Enjoy the summer tunes!

Wi-Fi Alliance announces 802.11ah HaLow technology for connected cars

Wi-Fi Alliance announces 802.11ah HaLow technology for connected cars | Technology News | Scoop.it
“The Wi-Fi Alliance has introduced a designation for the IEEE 802.11ah frequency called HaLow. It operates in low frequency bands for longer range and lower power usage. It is meant for use needs with longer-range capability such as Smart Home, Smart City, and connected car applications.”

Ronald Bannon MBA, C.Adm., FCMC, International Senior Trade Advisor's curator insight, January 10, 11:08 AM

Wi-Fi HaLow extends into the 900 MHz band and was originally designed for wearables and low-power sensors. With a range nearly twice that of standard Wi-Fi, connections with HaLow are generally more robust in challenging environments where physical and electronic impediments such as walls and other electronics are obstacles. This would include building walls, car and truck bodies, thick clothing (including kevlar and other advanced fibers), and multiples of the same.

From my own experience, you never know when your knowledge of coding will be useful, but you know it will one day. The earlier we familiarise ourselves with it, the better (no need to go over board though).

How to backup your iPhone and iPad to save your iOS data

How to backup your iPhone and iPad to save your iOS data | Technology News | Scoop.it
“ Data loss is a fact of life - you drop your phone, it hits the ground, shatters to pieces, and chances are you lost the majority of your data on the device. Thankfully, we have services like iCloud that automatically backup your data, making it easily retrievable in the case of a shattered or damaged smartphone. Unfortunately, it isn't the best solution for backing up data, particularly because Apple just isn't the best when it comes to cloud services. Security is a big concern with iCloud, and if you ever want to get more storage, it's quite pricey compared to competitors. The company also gives you a mere 5GB of cloud storage that it's hardly possible to backup all of the pertinent data on your iOS device, especially if you have a large photo library full of special moments you want to keep. That said, there are plenty of other ways to make sure your data is safe by backing up your files across a few free services. The first step is, of course, making sure you have a backup of your device on your PC or MacBook.”
