Sneak Peak at IOS 8

MSMS HelpDesker, Shawn Tsotsi has put together a nice little presentation on what we can expect out of IOS 8. Shawn has a Mac Developer account, allowing him to install and test Apple products before they are released to the public. He thinks that we should be as equally interested on these excited changes.

The Dreaded Shelf of Shame!!

7th Grader and Helpdesker Josh has made a decision:

"It’s been getting really annoying that everyone is just putting their iPads on top of the carts or just shoving them in our faces. We aren’t here to put the iPads away; we’re just here to plug them in and lock the cart. Now, in A11, anyone who doesn't put their iPad away has theirs left to die on the Shelf of Shame."

"The shelf above the numbers is the Shelf. If someone leaves their iPad on the Shame has auto-lock turned off and their iPad set to a white screen, guaranteeing a dead device the next morning. It seems to be effective."

Thank you Josh for standing up for other iPad Helpers!

Evolution of Cell Phones

Helpdeskers thought this was cute- they agree that bigger screens can be better depending on what you are using the phone for. The Android vs. iPhone debate is still going strong.

Which one do you prefer????

Out of 20 Helpdeskers, here are our results:

9 for Android

11 for iPhone
