It’s rare that I mourn the death of an engineer. We don’t recognize them the same way as pop culture tech titans. Listening to Dr. Bill Wattenburg (or as most of us knew him, Dr. Bill) was something that spanned generations in my family. For forty years, Dr. Bill was an anchor of weekend radio on KGO 810. Back when it was a real, independent radio station, that is.
In the history books, you could call today the official beginning of the end. Today really marks the end of the Macintosh as an independent computing platform.

Apparently Engadget doesn’t understand basic law. No, 50 votes in Senate would not restore Net Neutrality. At all. When people wonder why “fake news” is such a thing today, here’s a case study in why.
I take the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for a spin… on a Mac Pro from 2008.
I’m going to skip the usual bury-the-meat-until-the-3rd-paragraph. The journalists got this one wrong. The Affordable Care Act depends on the Individual Mandate.

One thing I wanted to figure out was the difference between the two PrecisionCore versions. More specifically, I wanted to know what really was different between them.
I give DIRECTV NOW and AT&T’s Sponsored Data as a solution to cut the cord, completely.
PSA: Do not clean install install Windows 10 Creators Update on a Mac. You need to install Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 1607), and then update via Windows Update. Microsoft will not fix this until the next major Windows 10 release.
