My firm uses BlueJeans as its default video conferencing tool. At first, I really didn’t like it. I found it unreliable and non-intuitive. I still don’t like the user experience, but it seems more reliable, at a time where I’m sure its traffic has skyrocketed.

I’m a devoted MacBook Pro user, but Apple’s commitment to Mac Pros, and the software that runs them, is fantastic news for all Mac users. And I’ve long felt that the Mac Mini is an under appreciated gem, so I’m delighted it will remain in the lineup.
Are you kidding? That’s exactly what’s going to happen. Big media companies are conscripting the mostly powerless W3C in their war to stuff the cat back into the bag. And anyone who doesn’t think opportunistic content providers will take advantage of the destruction of the open web is dreaming.
