This time last year, I would not have guessed that facemasks and UNC sanitizers would become stables on out kit in 2020. But here we are, almost made it to 2021, and while we don’t know what that year will bring, I think it’s a good idea to get technology to work for us and allow us to get more done, have more downtime, and feel less stressed.
Here is a small list of my top tech items to kick-off 2021. I have tested everything on this list under real-world conditions, and nothing has found its way on this list based on a snazzy press release. Everything featured here is the tech that I use and rely on daily.

The second ETF’s director had announced in late October that the time when the fund’s units would be tradable was unclear.
Davood Razaqi said, “As two of the four refineries, whose shares are due to be offered via this fund, have increased their capital, but the capital boosting has not been considered in the ETF’s asset, the fund’s index cannot be opened yet.”

Good news for gadget freaks in Europe! With the aim of making buying gadgets more convenient for consumers, encouraging fair competition and reducing e-waste the European Commission is on its way to introduce a law that will make tech giants and smartphone makers disclose their repairing details so potential buyers can know how easy or difficult it is to fix them. Not just phones, this new rule will be applicable for TVs, laptops, washing machines and lawnmowers as well.
Meanwhile, France has already become the first country to announce that it will introduce repairability scores to gadgets sold there from January 2021.

The SaaS industry has democratized access to technology for businesses of every size. However, once you begin to scale your business, you’ll start to notice the pitfalls of licensing a third-party SaaS solution.
When the seams start to show, you’re faced with a decision: Is it time to stop renting your software systems and owning them instead? There’s no single right answer, but there is a decision matrix to run through.
Customization, Control And Competitive Advantage
The first question to ask is whether the business function(s) is business-critical. The more critical the function, the more you want to control the software system running it and the system’s evolution.

Even before the pandemic, 6 in 10 students were not meeting expected proficiency levels in reading or math and 17% of our high school students who took the state Youth Risk Behavior Survey indicated they considered suicide. That same survey indicated 25% of high school youth were food insecure.

He testified there was no hint of his son being capable of it.
“I’ve seen no history of violence. He is, if anything, he’s always been characterized as a gentle person.”
Minassian’s father said his son had problems from a young age because of odd behaviours. He was in a special education program throughout his schooling. In some subjects, such as math, he was ahead of his peers but in other he was far behind.
Social interaction, he said, “was one of the greatest challenges he had.” He did not recognize facial expressions that reveal other’s emotional state, such

Some Apple customers who pre-ordered the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are finding their orders have updated with shipping information advising their iPhone is on the way, but it is unlikely that many of the deliveries will actually occur before November 13.
