CompuScoop follows events for Total Solar Eclipse of 2017

Like some of our readers, we are gearing up to witness the total Solar Eclipse that’s scheduled to take place on Monday, August 21st, 2017. So much so, that we have created a countdown clock (on the left) for the event. According to NASA, the first site for the Eclipse will be in the United States in the state of Utah and go from there. We have also included a link to the official NASA SOLAR ECLIPSE under the clock.

Q: Why aren’t we covering iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra? A: Read on….

We have had a few questions as to why we are not covering what’s new and upcoming with the recently announced iOS 11 and High Sierra. The short answer is -> WE CAN’T. Unlike other media outlets, the company that owns this web site is an official beta test site for Apple and other companies. For us to cover such information would violate any NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) with those companies.

CompuScoop’s in the “Eye of the Storm”

Because CompuScoop is on the upper-East coast of the United States, we are bracing for a major winter snow storm, with reports of 1-2 feet in some areas as well as high winds and blowing snow.
