IOS 7 release

Apple’s annual IOS release in September has made this month along with April (for tax reasons) two of my favorites.  All around the world, Apple users will download this latest update to their smartphones and tablets on September 18th and see what developers have been up to over the past several months.

Curiosity will also get the best of me but I will not download IOS 7 on that day but will wait until Friday.  My time in the IT world has taught me to let other people download and test this release first and let them take any hits to their computers.  Even though it has probably been tested quite thoroughly, there are always small bugs which cannot be predicted.  A patch release to address these issues is usually sent shortly thereafter.

Even though it won’t be available, I will be doing some Google searches to see if there is an interface between Siri and WordPress as we incrementally move to automate the process of providing updates for Alberta’s real estate market.  WordPress 3.7 and 3.8 will be available this year and we will be vigilant on this development but are not having any expectations as we realize this is far off into the future. We will have much more to say on this at a later date.
