    iPhone X and more recent iPhones with the use of screen protectors

    Nope, not necessary. I never use one and have had no issues on any of my iPhones with scratches.

    Ubiquiti equipment

    Have had fantastic experiences with it over the years. Like anything, once you know it the smaller quirks and differences people complain about tend to be non-issues. It is a unique architecture with their controller setup, but once you get it the whole system is great to work with. I run 10+...

    Need HelpDesk software suggestions

    You are mixing a few different things under 'HelpDesk'. For pure Helpdesk / ticket functionality, I really like ZenDesk. It is also one of the standards in the industry so a lot of other SaaS solutions integrate easily with it for things like IT Asset Management, etc.

    Ubiquity / UniFi AP Setup & Edgerouter X Load Balacing

    The Edge(Router) line is really designed for people that know networking well. They are extremely powerful devices, but not designed for ease of set up and configurations if you do not know networking. That said, if you do, it is significantly easier than say a Cisco IOS device. Unifi is a...

    In late 2019, do we still need to manually set wifi channel?

    and if you want to really go for it, do so with a Ubiquiti Unifi AP. Has been my go to in multi-living / condo situations for clients and does an impressive job of keeping strong client connections amongst the noise.

    iPad Air (2019) vs iPad Pro 10.5 (2017)

    You will like it, the 10inch is quite a bit more real estate and all are plenty fast these days. I regularly use iPad Airs, Pros (10.5, 9.7 and the new gen), and base iPads. The only one that really lags behind IMO is the base iPad.

    Multi network setup help

    The scenario he is seeing is degraded performance as the Wifi cameras are steady consumers of the channel traffic, not the need to separate the traffic for routing, security, etc.. Simply using a multi-SSID AP will do nothing to help with this problem as the multiple SSIDs are still on a single...

    Hax and firewalls?

    If there is one, sure. But frankly even a basic stateful firewall (like many routers now are) will make a direct "hack their system" approach very difficult unless there is an application open that has a vulnerability. Yes, there have been stateful firewalls with exploits in the past, but to the...

    Hax and firewalls?

    Firewalls typically are not the issue, application security vulnerabilities that can be exploited are. No code is perfect.

    Amazon Is Kicking All Unauthorized Apple Refurbishers off Amazon Marketplace

    I don't hate the idea, much of the refurb on Amazon for Apple products has been shit. It is not refurbed when you just cleaned it off and stuck it in a new box.

    WinAmp Not Dead?

    SEO "Company" asking me to change my nameservers

    Cloudflare is a solid service, also easy to setup for yourself if you know a bit about DNS/Nameservers, etc.

    What I’ve learned from nearly three years of enterprise Wi-Fi at home

    He even over-complicates his article. Unifi can be set it and forget it, if you go with the KISS rule.
