Apple have today launched their iPad Pro 9.7 inch and iPhone SE.
The new, smaller iPad Pro will cost you a surprisingly reasonable amount in Australia, with the entry-level storage option being a 32GB tablet for $899, a 128GB variant for $1049 and a whopping 256GB top of the line storage option for $1399.
This is a fair amount cheaper than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which starts at $1099 and extends as far as $1599 in Australia. Like the iPhone SE, it’ll be available from March 31 in Australia, with pre-orders opening a week before on March 25.
The iPhone SE essentially moves the features (other than 3D touch) to the same size phone that was the iPhone 4/5. This is great news for those wanting the new features, in a smaller form factor.
It is also going to be the cheapest iPhone, even though it has the same hardware as the more expensive phones, with a camera that doesn't stick out like on the iPhone 6.
The iPhone SE has a 12 megapixel camera with Focus Pixels and True Tone flash. It can also capture Live Photos, the Harry Potter-like embedded video feature that Apple launched in the iPhone 6s last year.
The phone, which looks similar to the iPhone 5s in style, has Touch ID and has NFC to use Apple Pay. It can also shoot 4K video.
As you will now see, our new Technology Website is up and running, and we are finishing off testing the Travel and Automation Sites as well.
You will also note you can book a job using the Blue Help circle in the bottom right corner now as well.
We have again had some clients affected by the Crypto Locker Virus, some of them for the second time.
This virus is one of the worst going around, and typically gets the user to click a link in an email. When they do this, it starts (behind the scenes) encrypting all files on that machine, and ALL FILES on any server share it can see.
If you see files like decrypt.txt in a folder, please call use urgently
You may not even know about it until it has encrypted all your files, and then it gives you the option of paying from $500 to about $5000 USD to get them unlocked.
Many of the major virus scanners still cannot stop this virus. We can lock all clients machines from running executable programs, but this also impacts doing updates, installing real programs and many other things.
We have started a new service to combat this, with a new firewall and spam filter that is discussed in an article below. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU CLICK!
Call us to confirm the authenticity of any email you are suspicious of.
