Dark Mode Web Site

Dark ModeOne of the coolest things about macOS 10.14 Mojave is the new Dark Mode appearance. We liked it so much we decided to create a special "dark mode" version of our web site to help celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Out new dark mode pages come online every night and show through until morning when the old style white background kicks in again. But don't fret! You don't have to stay up late to check our dark mode style. Just click the "Dark Mode" checkbox at the bottom of any web page to toggle it into dark mode at any time of day.

Custom Apple Stores

AppleStoreThe Apple Consultants Network has now replaced the Apple Business Affiliate program with a new initiative to provide small businesses with their own custom AppleStore that certified Apple Consultants can help them with to achieve discounts and unique management opportunities with the new Apple Business Manager. Over the coming weeks we will be working with all qualified clients to get them their own custom Apple Store and get them initiated into Apple Business Manager so they can enjoy the unique security and management benefits associated with the new program.

DetectXEvery Mac has Apple's built-in XProtect running in the background to keep evil software at bay. But did you know that Precursor uses a variety of other technologies to protect your Mac from unwanted and evil software? The Precursor health agent (courtesy of Watchman Monitoring) detects Malware and reports it to us immediately. And we have always had the latest version of MalwareBytes free version available to install from our Managed Software Center. But we felt we needed a licensed tool that could help you remove malware yourself and we chose DetectX Swift. DetectX has deep integration with munki (the technology behind our Managed Software solution) and Precursor's enterprise license allows us to put the the full version of DetectX on every Mac that we managed to help keep your computer safe.

Data-Driven Documents

Data-Driven DocumentsThe world of online info-graphics has been progressing by leaps and bounds and I was just blown away by an interactive example of Uber Rides by Neighbourhood: Research revealed it was built using D3.js - a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG, and CSS.

The D3 web site is full of incredibly rich and interactive examples of d3.js infograpics that will just blow your mind. I heartily recommend you check it out!
