Hard to believe, but we’re now into the second last month of the year!
With the end of October we saw the M3 announced from Apple for the new iMac 24” and MacBook Pro 14” and 16” models. So we’ll start to see those shipping this month.
So that will most likely be the last Apple event for the year as we now start looking toward Christmas - time to make the Santa list of what Apple products we all want!
So some hot products to match the temperatures increasing here in Perth!
Also, later this month is the cut off time to move your email from iinet/West/TPG before it gets turned off. So if you haven’t done that yet,..it’s worth looking into. You can read more about it on my previous month here.
Hopefully November goes well for everyone before we start heading into “the silly season”…..

Have you considered if your computer stops working or could be down for quite a while?
If your computer crashes or is down for a long period time, or even if it’s going to be away for service work for a while, have you considered the down time this could cause to yourself, your work and/or business?
There is a way that an external drive can be set up beforehand where in these sort of circumstances you can still be up and running relatively easy - even if your computer has to go away for days to be repaired.
It’s a relatively cheap and easy process.
If you would like to find out more about how this can be set up for yourself or your business please feel free to drop me an email or call to discuss.
Be aware of “Fake webpages” advising you need to update.
So there is a bit of a rise on the number of webpages or fake links that will try to trick you into calling a number or clicking a link to “update” some piece of software.
I’ve written a page with a bit more info on it here
