This was again another pretty busy month for tech news.  The SolidWorks Blog was active as usual thank to Matt West, surveys were flying off the handle, and tech alerts were flying off the print press.  May into June was a big month for general tech news with Google I/O, The D Conference, Apple iPhone 4 and Microsoft launching Office Online.

I also touch on a topic that has burned a few users in SolidWorks 2010 and connectivity to the SolidNetwork License (SNL) via VPN.  This topic is growing on the phones and in the forums and users want to get a fix ASAP!  Hope to get to the bottom of it after some deep testing and conversations with SolidWorks.  ~Lou
