Hello, and happy post-Labor Day to you. We're here with another edition of the IvanExpert newsletter. Not too surprisingly, with everyone spending so much time at home, we've been getting a lot of questions about Wi-Fi, and whether it can be made to perform better. It usually can.

Welcome to the latest IvanExpert newsletter. We're going to take a look at a much-overdue new update to Apple's popular desktop computer, the iMac.
Apple held their annual developers conference a couple of weeks ago -- all online, for the first time. They announced major under-the-hood changes for Mac users, but if Apple does their job well, you won't really notice.
I don't think anyone would deny that these are interesting times, and that we're all making adaptations, and one of the largest ones has been working remotely. We've been doing that here at IvanExpert, because, as it turns out, everyone needs their home computers to work well now more than ever.
We're all in the same boat, so when we're not working, we're just like everyone else -- a new cocktail regimen, kids to occupy, time to fill. Fortunately, we live in an age of technological wonder, so we have a few advantages over our ancestors who had to read books and play bridge. Not that there's anything wrong with those things. We've been playing a lot of board games too. But here are some ways to use the digital world for connection and fun.
Well, we may all be in lockdown, but Apple has been busy, and we're here to tell you about it. Please remember we are working by remote control and are here to help you in these strange times.
Hello. First things first: Everyone on the IvanExpert team is safe and well, and we wish you the same. We are ready and able to help you remotely with whatever your needs may be through these unprecedented times. We can log into your computer and control it from afar as though we are sitting in front of it, so if your home Mac (or other technology) is giving you trouble, please don't hesitate to call us. We are here.
First off: Is it safe to upgrade to macOS Catalina?
Before we get started, we'd like to answer a question we are often being asked: Is it ok to upgrade to macOS 10.15 Catalina? We think you should still hold off, unless you really want it, or you have a specific need (such as you depend heavily on Notes, and they no longer synchronize with your phone).
Can't think of anything to give to friends and family? Got some store gift cards? Planning on returning those ugly sweaters? Here are our suggestions of favorite tech items to buy for yourself this season!
