When Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns to Minneapolis from business in Hong Kong, what she thought was jet lag takes a virulent turn. Two days later, she’s dead in the ER and the doctors tell her shocked and grieving husband (Matt Damon) they have no idea why. Soon more cases are reported as the virus begins to spread. Researchers mobilize to break the code of this unique biological pathogen as it continues to mutate. Deputy Director Cheever (Laurence Fishburne) tries to allay the growing panic despite his own personal concerns, and must send a brave young doctor (Kate Winslet) into harm’s way. As the death toll escalates and people struggle to protect themselves and their loved ones in a society breaking down, one activist blogger (Jude Law) claims the public isn’t getting the truth about what’s really going on, and sets off an epidemic of paranoia and fear as infectious as the virus itself.

  • iPhone X: A Review for Users and Developers

    iPhone X: A Review for Users and Developers

    So I have started posting my iPhone X review. The first article focuses on the Screen. As mentioned in that article I normally write one giant review. But for the iPhone X, given its myriad of new features and just how much it change the idea of an iPhone, I opted to break it up into different articles. I have decided to bundle them all up into a single e-book, in case that is easier for you to read it in one fell swoop.

    iPhone X: A Review for developers and users covers many of the new features of the iPhone X. Some of these topics include: the Screen, Face ID, Animoji, Apple Pay, Gestures, and Passwords, aspects of the iPhone X that developers need to consider, wireless charging, and some thoughts on going from an iPhone 7 Plus to an iPhone X.

    iPhone X: A Review for Users and Developers is available as an e-pub book. You can buy the iPhone X: A Review e-book for $1.99 from Amazon or for $0.99 from Apple.
