Told through the lens of two complicated women working to navigate the minefield of high-octane jobs while facing crises in both their personal and professional lives, “The Morning Show” is an unapologetically candid drama that looks at the power dynamics between women and men, and women and women, in the workplace.

If you want to pick an Apple, have your eyes on Catalina

Published

on

By

Generally, when it comes to computer operating systems, the two major ones that people talk about are the Mac Operating System and Windows Operating System.

We know that different people have different opinions and perceptions about which one is the best and most convenient but today, we will not dwell on that since we are going to talk about the newest Mac OS, Catalina, and give you some related highlights and guidelines.

We believe that this information will help you to make informed choices whether you are a first time buyer (user) of an Apple computer or you are already a Mac big fan.

According to Apple itself, macOs Catalina gives you more of everything you love about Mac. Experience music, TV and podcasts in three all-new Mac apps. Enjoy your favourite iPad apps now on your Mac. Extend your workspace and expand your creativity with iPad and Apple Pencil. And discover smart new features in the apps you use every day. Now you can take everything you do above and beyondhttps://www.apple.com/za/macos/catalina/

At CompEye, from our own experience with Catalina, we believe that ‘she’ is unique and is a must have if you believe in the beauty of life especially from the angle of technology.

Catalina has so far received positive reviews from some very tech savvy people including renowned computer or information technology centred magazines such as PC Mag.

Edward Mendelson from PC Mag says Catalina, the latest version of macOS, offers beefed up security, solid performance, the ability to use an iPad as a second screen, and many smaller enhancementshttps://www.pcmag.com/reviews/apple-macos-catalina

The Economic Times says “If you are deeply entrenched in the Apple ecosystem you will probably love the new OS. If you are moving from a Windows device, this will be a pleasant — yet initially difficult — change. Apple’s macOS Catalina is a free to download and works on almost all MacBook, iMac, Mac Pro and Mac Mini devices launched in 2012 and later”. (sic) http://lnnk.in/8Fg 

Hereunder, we have listed for you some Mac computers that are compatible with Catalina just in case you may be thinking of upgrading your Operating System – MacBook (2015 or newer) 

MacBook Air (2012 or newer)
MacBook Pro (2012 or newer)
Mac mini (2012 or newer)
iMac (2012 or newer)
iMac Pro (2017 or newer)
Mac Pro (2013 or newer)

More so, with the new release of Mac OS 10.15 Catalina, if you are a Graphics Designer, you may wonder which Adobe applications are compatible, or whether you should wait to install the new OS update.

In that regard, we have compiled a list of some known issues that we have been able to come across thus far in Catalina. 

You can have a look at them on the links below but if you run into any issues that are not listed below while you are using Photoshop or Lightroom in Catalina, please let us know.

The Computer Age and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) are some of the terms which are familiar to people across the continents and quite often these words reflect the prevailing use of computer related technologies in people’s day to day interactions with each other.

Computers have redefined how work is done in businesses and has also made an observably definite impact in the field of education.

In almost every sphere of life, people are either considering the use of or they are already using a computer in making life and work easier and faster and more effective.

In as much as computers are very essential in addressing various issues that people attend to from time to time, we must also understand that in one way of the other, computers may or can start to develop faults and even break down thus causing great inconveniences to various stakeholders.

With this knowledge in mind, at CompEye, we are always excited to be an Information Technology (I.T) centred initiative that quickly and efficiently attends to computer or information technology related issues at your own convenience and to your satisfaction.

We offer Apple Mac Repairs, Hardware and Software Installations, Operating System Install/Repair, Windows Troubleshooting, Data Backup/Recovery, Networking Setup, DC (Power) Jack, Screen Replacement, Password Recovery, Virus Removal, System Upgrades, Printers and Peripherals Installations as well as Mobile Phones Repairs

Meet the Zimbabwean building driverless cars in the UK

BY Face2face Africa – January 10, 2020

Pasi William Sachiti is a Zimbabwean serial entrepreneur, who is building driverless cars in the UK, using a combination of advanced robotics and driver-less vehicle technology.

His UK startup, Academy of Robotics has been working on “Kar-go”, a driverless car to solve the last-mile delivery problem.

The vehicle has been developed in collaboration with the UK’s vehicle licensing authority, the DVLA, to travel on the roads at up to about 96km/h.

Prior to these amazing cars, Sachiti has built quite a number of companies that have been acquired by others. He built “MyCityVenue”, an A.I. driven experiences platform serving 1.6 million users which was acquired in 2015 by Secret Escapes.

Born in Harare, Zimbabwe and moving to the UK at 16, Sachiti started out as an entrepreneur when he was only 19. His first start-up at 19, was called “123-registration”, a domain registration business which was acquired for an undisclosed amount.

Before building “MyCityVenue”, Sachiti was on the BBC Investment program Dragons Den, where he pitched a start-up, “Clever Bins” – a solar-powered digital outdoor advertising bins. The company he pitched traded for three years and subsequently licensed its technology to six countries and local governments before closing in 2013.

Sachiti, who studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and Aberystwyth, is now the founder and CEO at Academy of Robotics.

His autonomous vehicle was launched in 2019 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.

During his trip to the UK, Zimbabwe’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, S.B Moyo together with Zimbabwe’s ambassador to the UK inspected the Kar-go vehicle at an exclusive reception hosted at the Westbury Mayfair hotel.

Sachiti shared his vision to make Kar-go technology available around the world at the event which was organized by Conrad Mwanza and the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards team.

According to Sachiti, he used Zimbabwe roads to train the car’s AI. “There are some great delivery robots out there, but most of them are designed to run on neat pavements or sidewalks of grid-like cities. We want Kar-go to be universally applicable, so we have trained our technology in a number of different environments and of course, for me, Zimbabwe was a natural choice,” he said.

Kar-go has a software stack that allows it to navigate on unmarked country roads and even without GPS. “It works in conjunction with an app, where recipients can track their delivery and meet the vehicle just like meeting a pre-booked taxi. Recipients will then use the app to open the hatch to release their specific parcel. Inside the vehicle, a patented package management system will sort and re-shuffle packages on the move”.

Kar-go is powered by Telsa batteries and can drive at 60mph and cover around 193km before it needs re-charging.

According to TechZim, Kar-go uses advanced evolutionary artificial neural networks to train the vehicle in a way that mimics aspects of nature and biology, helping it to learn from events in the past and apply this knowledge to new situations it faces. It adopts a revolutionary terrain-training approach.

In 2010, Sachiti was nominated for HSBC Start-up stars for his company and innovation ‘Clever Bins’. In 2013, he won the Zim Achievers Awards in Business Innovation also for ‘Clever Bins’.

In 2017, Sachiti got the award for the Aberystwyth InvEnterPrize for ‘Kar-go’ and in the same year, he got nominated for the Wales Start-up Awards for the most innovative start-up in Wales.

Sachiti was also named one of the top 2017 “35 under 35” entrepreneurs in Wales.
