OSX 10 – Day 1

Good Evening NevoLighters!

I hope that the day was kind to you and your tech. Today, We took the plunge and became an OS X 10 developer beta tester to see what, if any, changes we need to make to our site designs and applications. Below is our findings. We’ve opted to rank our findings from 1 to 5 where 1 is worst and 5 is seamless.

1. Installation: 1

Yeah, Yeah – it’s beta. Sure. But, is it suppose to lock up your mac? Probably not. My Macbook was docked prior to installation and certainly had something to do with it. The external display was working fine however, the built-in display went all crazy. It was only after a reboot that we were actually able to use anything.

2. Speed: 2

Wireless seems to be much, much slower. In fact, I’m uploading a new video to a client’s channel and have been for a few hours. Prior to this it only took a few minutes. Certainly it could be a problem with our internal systems, however all other systems seem to be functioning correctly.

3. Look: 4

Basically it boils down to this – if you liked the new iPhone look, you’ll love iOSX 10. If not, you’ll hang yourself. Back in our development days we had Vista icons and this very much reminds me of that. The biggest change that we can tell is the absence of the “extended” icon at the far right. Now the maximize green button does the same thing – frankly, it makes the green button usable now and not just “slightly bigger than normal” button.

4. Safari: 3

Whoa, now Apple. Everything is totally different. A few sites don’t seem to work however according to apple forums, this is to be expected. We’re not sure how we feel about it – it’s very kindergarten-ish. Mac users already get in trouble and bullied for their starbuck-fetishes and their Birkenstocks; a candy crush style browser might have us getting swirlies in the toilet again.

5. iTunes: 5

Ah. Okay. This is why it was released. AirPlay is seamless. Most all of my artless albums now have art (sweet!). Very fast, very quick, super responsive. If you’re using BowTie, you’ll love it even more. love it!

6. iPhone integration: .5

We’re not sure we’ve set this up correctly. Yes, we actually saw an icon that said “iPhone” but once we clicked it – it vanished never to be seen again. You can now message people other than iPhone users and even answer calls (with the worst quality in the free world) however Google Voice users might have a problem. We’ve been getting issues when replying or starting a message with Google Voice. We’re hoping this is corrected soon.

More to come – certainly this is a long road. Our assessment so far is. . .WAIT. 🙂

“MCHE” at the Launch pad

 

Hello Nevolighters, and Happy Sunday!

NLT is proud to announce that our newest customer, Meridian Christian Home Educators, is at the launch and sitting at 90%. The site will be able to provide Meridian’s homeschool parents login information to gain access to pay their dues, access message boards and resources as well as photo and video libraries!

This client also allowed us to design their logo and really let us go with our creativity.

Further, the guys (and gals) at MCHE has asked that we launch the site publicly and personally! To that end, we’ll be launching it at their yearly kick off, Saturday August 9th. Bill Cole, NLT founder, will be on hand to walk the masses through the new site as well as a tutorial on “Raising Kids in Technology.”

We’re hoping to video the event and launch it on a podcast! In any event, we’ll be sure to keep everyone posted!

Greetings NevoLighters,

NLT is branching out and has done our first ever scheduler site. We launched a few hours ago and have loved seeing our lights light up. Looking for a place to stay in the Illinois area? Like to hunt? Give these guys a look here.

Both Brian and Geri were wonderful to work with (as always). It helps tremendously when your customers already know what they want!

NevoLight Partners With Voices Unlimited

Good Evening NevoLighters!

NLT is proud to partner with Voice’s Unlimited, a local TV show that promotes positive and uplifting things in our community! In our NLT offices (Also known as, The Basement), we don’t watching much public TV because it’s so negative and depressing. It’s nice to see this Christian ministry take hold of this cause and help bring Meridian back to it’s former glory that starts with her citizens.

More to come, including our first ever Nevo After Dark podcast, Stay tuned!!
