What’s in this week’s issue? Well, as the team here at Fedora likes to say, “grab that cup of coffee or tea,” get comfy and take a look at what’s been going on lately.
The first story we’re focusing on this week is actually an Apple rumor that is buzzing around the internet lately. Wonder if it’s true or not.

Fortunately, within the next two years, the FCC will be required to provide audio output for all television emergency alerts.
