    Whenever Technews covers product releases, I feel like the newspaper is marking a moment in history, and future readers and writers will go back to that issue of the newspaper randomly and realize the leap of technology that has happened since the article. This article is for you, fellow reader in the year 2024 on October 14. This week, on September 12 2018, Apple has held an event at the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino, California. They released the new iPhones (iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR) and the new Apple Watch series 4. The long awaited event left Apple fanboys with empty wallets, android users with the usual frustration, and investors happy.

    However, Walt Disney envisioned something very different from the permanent fairground that currently sits on the original EPCOT space. The original community that Disney envisioned was to be just that - “a real city that would never cease to be a blueprint of the future.” Disney’s original EPCOT concept was to be a living, breathing company town that Disney would be satisfied leaving to his descendants and to the future of humanity.

    This week, Apple released three new iPhones, namely iPhone X-R, iPhone X-s and the iPhone X-s Max, as well as the new Apple Watch series 4. For a while now, I have been waiting on Apple’s next move since my last iPhone was the 3GS, and my current phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 that I got at the end of 2015. As anyone that was hyped for Apple’s event on September 12, I became annoying around my friends. My friend Iris Uwizeyimana, who was trying to keep her calm around me, asked me the question of “The iPhone looks just like the previous one. Has Apple really innovated since Steve Jobs died?” I tried to concoct an answer to say what I was thinking while being still affected by the hype of the event. However, I had to think with the facts.

    During Welcome Week, I met a lot of people and made several friends. When we wanted to meet up and head somewhere together, we all agreed to meet in the MSV lounge that has the word “TECH” displayed in large letters on its wall, in plain visual range of anyone walking past it. To us, this location became known as the Tech Lounge. I assumed that the sheer size and splendor of the word “TECH” on the wall meant that this lounge was also known by this moniker to the rest of the student body as well. Recently, to my utmost surprise, I have come to find out that this location is actually known as the Center Lounge.

  • Campus Creepers, and no, I don't mean people

    There are creepers crawling around campus. Peering into your windows at night, they lurk. Public Safety has neither a method nor any desire to track and monitor these delinquents. They are allowed to wander campus freely day and night. We have become complicit with our safety. Students, faculty, and administration are all accountable for this oversight. It’s easy to brush aside when there’s just one. One isn’t a problem on its own, but these evil creatures gather together, increasing their potential to wreak havoc on this campus exponentially. I suppose we could wait it out till winter. The cold weather reduces the chance that they will cause problems, but can we last 'til then?
