5G Energy Levels

As it says in the article from ZDNET:
For conspiracy theorists, looks like it's time to head back to chemtrail forums and hating on fluoride, because 5G is no better or worse than the other frequencies used, according to tests from Telstra.

Apple issues second iOS 13, iPadOS 13, tvOS 13, watchOS 6, macOS 10.15 betas

The new builds can be acquired by developers in the beta as an over-the-air update on devices enrolled into the program, or via the Apple Developer Center. Public beta versions of each operating system normally arrive a few days after the developer betas, though so far they have not been made available for the milestone versions, and are made available via the Apple Beta Software Program website.

Information about the new features of the new operating systems for the different platforms is available on a variety of sources such as
AppleInsider, Catalina Preview , Apple Developer - Beta 2 Release Notes as well as a host of other locations such as TechRadar that reported on the WWDC 2019 event.

One of the many significant changes are with the MacOS which will lose support for 32 bit apps and the iPadOS will have much better functionality with using storage devices for files. Something that has been a long time coming but most probably held back to avoid cannibalising the Mac sales.

Apple WWDC 2019

Apple will be conducting their Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, June 3rd (US PDT).
It is expected that announcements will be made about the next MacOS 10.15, iOS 13 and as usual, many other announcements ranging from new initiatives to potentially new hardware.
Many IT magazines and bloggers speculate on what to expect. Sometimes they are completely wrong and other times mostly right. It is interesting to speculate but we do not need to wait too long to get the real facts.

iPod touch (2019) 7th-generation review

Earlier this week the iPod touch received a modest upgrade, arriving with little fanfare via an Apple press release. The new 7th-generation iPod touch has little in the way of new features, but it does receive a CPU spec-bump that takes it from an iPhone 6-era Apple A8 to an iPhone 7-era A10 Fusion chip, not to mention double the RAM of the previous generation.

Poland files complaint with EU's top court over copyright rule change

Poland has submitted a complaint to the European Union's top court against copyright rules adopted by the bloc in April to protect Europe's creative industries, which Warsaw says may result in preventive censorship.
Yes, the innocuous appearing legislation! Today the likes of Google, Facebook and Twitter absolve themselves of responsibility for content but actively censor anything they consider to be wrong-speech. The mainstream media have become on the whole propagandists that censor and distort any information that does not correspond to their narrative. Interesting that a former east block communist country stands up for freedom.
