Docket Featured in Launch Class of Zoom ‘Zapps’

Docket, an online collaboration platform that helps teams run better meetings, has teamed up with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) to deliver one of the first Zapps (Zoom Apps) as a part of a new integration offering.

At their annual user conference, Zoomtopia, Zoom announced a new library of apps designed to enhance the Zoom meeting experience. Dubbed ‘Zapps,’ these apps will blend other top software platforms and tools with the Zoom desktop meeting client.

“Docket empowers Zoom users to tie meetings together from preparation to follow-through,” said Wei Li, Head of Platform and AI at Zoom. “We want to bring these platforms closer together through our new Zapp to elevate the collaboration experience and bring happiness to our customers.”

The library of Zapps is a separate addition to Zoom’s App Marketplace of third-party integrations. Docket took first-place among more than 600 app marketplace integrations in Zoom’s first ‘Whale Watch’ competition earlier this year.

“We’re excited to expand our relationship with Zoom to provide new ways for teams to seamlessly collaborate end-to-end,” said Darin Brown, CEO of Docket. “Zapps are a natural extension of our mission to improve the way people meet, and we look forward to taking advantage of this emerging technology.”

Docket’s meeting intelligence platform enhances business meeting transparency and alignment end-to-end with shared agenda creation, stored meeting history and action item tracking. The company launched out of High Alpha’s venture studio in Indianapolis. Before co-founding Docket, Brown served as the CTO of Angie’s List and Vice President at Salesforce and ExactTarget.

Docket plans to build a Zapp that brings important meeting resources into Zoom’s desktop meeting client. Users will be able to build and share a meeting agenda, take notes with meeting guests, assign tasks for follow-up and save attachments and resources without leaving the Zoom

New class action suit resurrects iPhone throttling controversy

A new class action lawsuit filed in California takes aim at an erstwhile iOS battery management tool that allegedly hindered the performance of certain iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and iPhone SE series devices.

Filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the complaint is the latest in a series of lawsuits targeting the so-called “batterygate” fiasco from 2017. The complaint arrives on the same day as a submission deadline for iPhone owners to file claims in a $500 million settlement that was reached earlier this year to rectify identical grievances.

Discovered shortly after the release of iOS 10.2.1, the iPhone throttling issue was traced back to a hardware management tool that was included in iOS to mitigate negative effects of aging iPhone batteries. In particular, the software was designed to thwart unexpected shutdowns suffered by certain iPhone 6 and 6s devices, but was maintained well into the lifecycle of iPhone 7.

Release notes accompanying the 10.2.1 release state the update “improves power management during peak workloads to avoid unexpected shutdowns on iPhone.” No mention of CPU throttling is made, nor is the management feature detailed in full.

Third-party tests confirmed the presence of an undisclosed throttling process, prompting Apple to issue an apology to iPhone owners for a lack of transparency. To make up for the alleged indiscretion, prices on out-of-warranty battery replacements were cut and the company later introduced a battery health tool that allows users to disable the throttling feature manually.

Still, the lawsuits flowed in. A total of 61 class action complaints were consolidated in April 2018 by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, with Apple ultimately agreeing to settle in March of this year.

Terms of the settlement grant members about $25 each for their troubles. The actual payout

LIGAO CITY—Four persons, three of whom were students taking online classes, were injured after a ten-wheel truck rammed on Tuesday (Oct. 6) the computer shop where they were in along the Maharlika Highway in this city, a police report said.

The injured were identified as Nikko Oriel, 14 years old and a Grade 9 student; Ralf Marcos Quiped, 12 years old and a Grade 6 student; Justine Dela Cruz, 15, a junior high school student and Marion Manga, 27, computer shop owner, according to SSgt. Joel Llmas, Ligao City police investigator.

Llamas said an Isuzu flatbed truck from Guinobatan town was on the national road at the village of Tuburan past noon when it careened off its track and slammed into the computer shop where the students and shop owner were in.

The truck was being driven by Severo Sadia, of Naga City, and on board was the driver’s companion, Jero Abraham, 18.

Student seeks mayor’s aid to get gadget for online class


AN EDUCATION student belonging to a poor family in Capas town, Tarlac province has sought the help of Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan to get a new laptop for her online classes.

Erica Gracia personally wrote the mayor a letter explaining the economic status of their family.

She said her father used to work as a construction worker while her mother is a house help.

The student told Catacutan that her old phone is no longer reliable.

“Nahihirapan po kasi akong mag-online class dahil sa aking phone. Kailangan po kasi ng bawat oras o minuto ay hindi nakatanggal sa pagkaka-charge,” she said.

Gracia said she needs to use Zoom and Google Meet applications but her phone is not compatible.

The student added she has to borrow gadgets from her cousins and schoolmates just to submit her requirements.

“Minsan ay pinilit kong gamitin ang aking phone kaso nahila ko sa pagkaka-charge at dahil dun hindi po ako nakapagsubmit,” she said.

Catacutan immediately acquired a brand new laptop and donated it to Gracia.

The mayor stressed the need to support programs on education especially the scholarship of students belonging to poor families.

Catacutan recently distributed educational assistance to some 76 poor but deserving students of Capas town.
