Newsletter - May 2018

Hello and welcome to this month’s newsletter.

Happy May Day to you all. Yes, another fiesta day here, oh what joy. For those of us with a day off in the sun today, enjoy! For those in the UK you will have to wait for the bank holiday weekend to enjoy your day off.

Microsoft has just released it's latest Windows 10 update (1803) after an unscheduled delay earlier in the month. Newer computers should start to see the update available from 8th May and others will get it according to Microsoft's phased release program, or you can manually download it now. Further details here. My advice to you is to wait until your computer downloads it automatically to avoid any potential update problems. Most of my machines picked up the update when I went into Windows Update and manually checked for updates.

If anyone is looking for a fast, quiet little desktop computer, I might have just what you are looking for. It's an HP ultra-small form factor computer, measuring just 7 cm tall by 25 cm wide and 25 cm depth, with a powerful Intel dual core processor, 4GB memory and 120GB lightning fast SSD storage. It's running Windows 10 Pro, the 1804 latest version, has a dual layer DVD writer, both VGA and DVI monitor connections and 8 USB ports. It also has both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections to connect to the internet. This would be a perfect computer for someone who wants to replace their old noisy, slow, on it's last legs desktop computer (which is perhaps running Windows XP or 7) with something small, quiet and superfast running the very latest version of Windows 10. All you need to do is plug in your existing monitor, mouse and keyboard and you are up and running. This little beauty is priced to sell at just 175€ so if you are interested get in touch with me pronto because I don't think it won't be around for very long.

Apple has just released their iTunes app for Windows 10. If you connect your iPad or iPhone to your computer, you may very well want to consider using this new app rather than the horrendous desktop program you are currently forced yo use. There is a nice little write-up on the benefits of using the new app which you can read here.

There is a very strong rumour that Apple will be releasing a new iPhone SE this month, the 'lo-cost' iPhone. If you prefer a smaller phone, rather than those big 6" ones that seem so fashionable these days, this might suit you.

There is also a very strong rumour that Nokia is about to release the Nokia X this month, their new top of the range android device. More details next month.

Have a great month.
