A woman smiles while preparing to give blood

For the American Red Cross, summer can be a difficult season for blood drives - especially in a college town like Columbia, where many donating students leave once school lets out.

That's just part of the reason Socket is happy to host a Red Cross blood drive in our headquarters every summer.

Today's blood drive had 22 people volunteer to donate, with 16 units of blood collected. Every donation can save up to three lives, so every pint matters!

Having WiFi woes? There are a variety of reasons your wireless speeds might be suffering, but if you’ve exhausted the abilities of WiFi extenders or just how close you can sit to your router, there’s another option for improving network performance.

Bear with us – while it can sound a bit technical, it really just breaks down to there being two kinds of WiFi networks. Not so bad, right?

Congratulations to Sam Johnson, Service Delivery Specialist, on being named Socket's You-Make-The-Difference Winner for May!

Sam is one of our Service Delivery Specialists, but finds himself with a variety of titles, depending on what needs to get done.
