Today marks a historical day in the world of computing and technology, as Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple has stepped down from his role as the leader of the tech-Goliath.
The announcement followed the news that an iphone 5 was due for release in the near future.
Jobs, who co-founded the company, has been plagued with medical issues of recent years, including his bout with pancreatic cancer which he beat. Steve has been on a medical leave of absence in the past few months, only to briefly return for an announcement of the new Max OSX Lion at a conference.
He has been a driving force at Apple, and only time will tell if the company will continue to be innovative and maintain it’s strength without their leader. One thing is for certain, Apple’s share price dipped 7% on the announcement, and had a tendency to drop on previous announcements of his leave from work. The company almost fell over during the 90s while he was away, and only started to recover when Steve took the reins and introduced the iMac personal computer, and announced a partnership with Microsoft to run MS Office on their machines.
Apples rise and rise since his return has been attributed to the slow but steady growth of the OSX Platform, and most notably the introduction of the iPod music player, and more recently, the highly sought after Apple Iphone smart phone, and iPad tablet devices.
Steve has indicated he will be staying on as Chairman of the board at Apple, should he receive share holder approval.
We hope Steve recovers to health and continues contributing to the things he is passionate about.
ONE, a provider of Fixed Line Broadband and Mobile Broadband is proud to announce our support of the new Huawei E1762 Mobile Broadband USB modem.
This latest device from the popular and fast-growing Huawei hardware manufacturer replaces the previous E169 and E160 Devices.
The features of the E1762 include:
- Native Intel Mac OSX 10.3 to 10.6 Snow Leopard support (the E169 supported 10.3 – 10.5, and only worked in Snow Leaopard via a hack)
- Support for Windows 2000 through to Windows 7
- Support for GPRS, WCDMA, and 3G HSDPA mobile technologies
The device is technically capable of speeds up to 7.6 Megabits per second download speed, however the current network only supports up to a maximum of 3.6Mbps, and the device is completely happy at that speed.
The modem, which is in the form of a USB Key, is small enough to fit in your pocket and carry with you on the go. It has an opening on the side allowing insertion of an external antenna for improved signal in rural areas, as well as an expandable Micros SD memory slot, turning the modem into an external storage device as well.
Also built into the software is a notification system that receives network notices from the ISP, such as download usage, which is sent via SMS and pops up into the application as a message. This is handy when your internet plan has a set limit of data per month. Previously this feature was only available to Windows users, but is also now available to Mac OSX users as well.
The Huawei E1762 Modem is bundled in all new Mobile Broadband plans from ONE.
