Windows 7 and 8.1 Update Issues

August 19, 2019

Microsoft published a new Windows update for their operating systems 7 and 8.1 on Tuesday 13th of August 2019, which has since led to critical errors with certain computers including a complete system wipe and loss of all data. (Recommended Update: KB3133977 must be installed before Monthly Update:KB4512506)

Reports started coming in Thursday 15th of August 2019 of this issue and we are recommending to our clients that are being notified of the update or if anything happens that isn’t expected, such as being prompted to factory reset their computer, to turn off the computer and contact us.

If you have a question regarding this please contact us at 02 8007 2930.


Is 5G coming soon?

February 12, 2019

 

Telstra reveals that we could have a new 5G network running as early as the first half of this year and Australians could be one of the first in the world to have this privilege.  They already have a number of smartphone manufacturers bringing their 5G compatible phones exclusively to their 5G network.

This could mean that we can download a 4K movie on our smartphones in only a few seconds! Not only will data transfer will be at hyper speeds, but consumers will be able to enjoy high quality streaming and gaming. Also, there will be reduced latency in the transfer of data which will support remote heart surgery to be conducted through a robotic arm.

Automation of physical assets such as tractors, irrigation systems and even livestock will become more common as they can be connected to a network with sensor technology.

The benefits are huge!
