Holiday Tech Gifts At Discount Prices For Generous Hosts

by Bill

If you are in the tech industry (reading the NationalNet Blog about our amazing hosting on a regular basis would definitely qualify you), then the annual holiday season likely brings you the added pressure to come up with terrific tech gifts for those you care about.

At NationalNet we pride ourselves on providing every client with top tier tech support from the first ring or support ticket straight through to the final resolution of each opportunity for our staff to provide you with service, but we also understand that you may prefer not to provide phone support to your own extended family every time they misplace their password or need to reboot their device. For that reason we are posting this listing of terrific holiday tech gifts at deeply discounted prices.

Laptops, Desktops, Smart Home Devices and More at a fraction of their list price, and many of the items listed are the sort of “one button” items that would be difficult for any luddite to misuse.

What we have learned over the years from serving our clients, is that providing useful technology in a simple, straight-forward and cost effective manner makes all the difference in many relationships. We hope the holidays are a time of tremendous joy for you and all those you love. Hopefully this post also allows you to ring in the New Year with a peaceful January of 2018, fill with happy friends and family who hardly need your assistance at all with LED smart bulbs, Video Doorbells and other terrific tech gifts you provided for them as a gracious host in your own right.

Happy Holidays!

– Your Friends at NationalNet

Google Rethinks Self-Imposed Ban On Accessibility Apps

by Bill

Google recently warned developers it would soon ban the use of Android accessibility APIs for things other than accessibility. Developers have long used the accessibility APIs to connect with the operating system, until Google notified developers they had 30 days to explain how their app was using the Accessibility APIs to help a user with disabilities or face outright removal from the Play Store. Now public outcry has Google reversing direction and pausing their bans.

Many of Android’s most popular apps use the Android accessibility APIs’ unique set of features including popular apps like: Tasker, Lastpass, and Greenify. The workaround was necessitated by the fact that Google has been so slow to build proper APIs for some of these accessibility hacks. Usage Access API, Autofill API and others are in different points along Google’s own development timeline but the fragmented Android ecosystem makes solving systemic issues far more complicated than they are with a closed system like the one Apple uses.

Will Google Android become more of a walled garden in the future? Or will they simply allow Devs to continue to use workarounds on systems that now skirt the original purpose of their creator’s intent? It’s an interesting evolution unfolding and it is impacting millions of potential customers as Android gains market share and the number of devices continues to expand in ways that will make these sorts of complications even more challenging to moderate in the near future.
