Solar Eclipse Glasses : the definitive SAFE list

Solar Eclipse Glasses : the definitive SAFE list

It's a confusing time for Eclipse Watchers in the United States as Amazon recalls hundreds (if not thousands) of Eclipse Glasses this week. This happened just before the Total Solar Eclipse of August, 2017.

Apple let me down: 3 things I wanted to see at WWDC 2017

At a jam-packed two and a half hours, Apple's WWDC 2017 keynote certainly wasn't slow going. iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra; the Siri-powered HomePod and new MacBook Pro and MacBook Configurations; the updated iMac and the sneak peek of the stealthily-seductive iMac Pro: this year's Apple developer conference bucked the trend and mixed new software and hardware. All well and good, but I went into WWDC day one with some back-of-the-envelope expectations, and those turned out to be dashed.
