Yesterday, when I came home from work, I got to play with Comic-Life, finally!! It's pretty intuitive, but I work in Adobe applications so much, that I keep instinctively reaching for Adobe key commands. Like space bar for the move tool, or command + or - for zoom. Some work, like holding option & dragging to duplicate a shape or shift to scale a shape proportionately. My biggest complaint is that it runs slow on our computer. There is much waiting for the "beach ball" to stop spinning. My non-computer savvy guess is that OS 10.4 uses more RAM than 10.2, so there is less "juice" left over for running the applications.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
