The case of the X!
Start saving, start queuing, iPhone X is here…
‘Our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen. One so immersive the device itself disappears into the experience. And so intelligent it can respond to a tap, your voice, and even a glance. With iPhone X, that vision is now a reality. Say hello to the future’, says Apple about their sleek new baby.
Brace yourself for the iPhone X (pronounced as 10). Apple admits it will cost more than any other handset and they assure you it is worth your money and the extra waiting time to receive an order. Apple will release it on 27 October, 2017 as a limited edition. This is Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone, and it is set to change how the handset game forever. It leaves behind the familiar physical home button and tried-and-true fingerprint sensor.

THIS WEEK’S FUTURE TIP – INTERNET OF THINGS
Africa Prepares for IoT
IT leaders and business executives are meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa on 14-15 March 2018, at the Internet of Things Forum Africa to explore the latest developments in IoT technology. The forum will showcase technologies, platforms & devices that will power the future.
So What Is The Internet Of Things?
Simply put, this is the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet. This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of. The analyst firm Gartner says that by 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices… The IoT is a giant network of connected “things” (which also includes people). The relationship will be between people-people, people-things, and things-things. Forbes.com
