I will never speak to you again . . . . You’ll never see me again.” Read Full Story

But one of the pandemic’s more surprising side effects has been the new drive to treat patients remotely via telemedicine.

When Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg took the stage during Apple’s virtual “Hi, Speed” launch event on Tuesday , he declared that the introduction of the first 5G iPhone was a “historic moment.” People, he said, have “been waiting for 5G to get real. With the network coverage they expect, the incredible performance they have been promised, and the devices they love. Well, today, with iPhone, the wait is over. 5G just got real.” Read Full Story
