Well, that's a wrap on solar year 2017 from your Space Javelin crew -- we'll be back with Season 3 and maybe a warp core engine if Santa thinks we've been good, starting on or around January 8. In the meantime, among those receiving a lump of coal this Xmas will be FCC chair Ajit Pai and his lickspittle cronies at the FCC, the US Justice Department for studiously ignoring Amazon's ongoing monopoly abuse, and whoever at Apple keeps screwing up the software and delaying the hardware. Still, the iMac Pro is out, Final Cut Pro X got updated, the Apple TV 4K and Google's Chromecast are both re-appearing on Amazon after two years, and Tim Cook and Charles Koch found something to agree on, so not everyone has been naughty this year.
In addition to fighting for net neutrality and saving up for that hella-pricey iMac Pro, Disney bought 21st Century Fox, T-Mobile bought Layer 3's video assets, and they both look like they're going to try and create their own competition to Netflix. AppleInsider shows off Samsung's stockingful of fail on the Galaxy Note 8's biometrics, the Windows 10 S version of iTunes isn't going to get here in time for the figgy pudding, and Phil Schiller doesn't seem to bothered about much of anything, really. Alibaba says it has a way to jailbreak iOS 11, if there's anyone left who cares, Apple fixes things they should have fixed earlier (including their Airport routers), and we *don't* spoil the new Star Wars movie or Doctor Who Christmas Special for anyone (until next episode ...). See you in three weeks, cadets, so enjoy your shore leave and stay tuned for the faster, further, higher new season of ... Space Javelin!
