Learning Javascript during Quarantine

By |2020-05-22T09:34:07-04:00May 22nd, 2020|Technology, The Blog|0 Comments

What have I been doing with my quarantine time? Picking up some JavaScript training and making some good progress too. If you have the time and resources I would highly recommend a coding boot camp, especially now that you can access them from anywhere via Zoom.

In another story of captivity, under the Pharaoh in Egypt, the Children of Israel were valued only by how many bricks they could make each day. When they left Egypt it took years to get that mentality out of them - to move into being identified not by what they did but by who they were.

Starting Over

I believe this is a great time for our entire country to reboot. Know what happens to a computer when it reboots? It runs faster. There may have been a “virus” running that you did not know about but rebooting flushes it out. This country is long over due for a reboot. When it does it is going to fly! The entrepreneurial sprit is back. Companies are starting to innovate again which I have not really seen in quite a while. American car companies are producing ventilators...

Sorry Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook isn’t a “positive force”

By |2019-12-27T07:58:02-05:00November 25th, 2018|Facebook, Technology|0 Comments

Zuckerberg argues that Facebook is a positive force in the world because it "gives more people a voice." But I'm old enough to remember what the Internet was like before Facebook came along. If Facebook disappeared from the Internet tomorrow, people would still have plenty of ways to make their voices heard.

Analysts Predict a Big Quarter for the Apple Watch!

By |2018-09-30T17:06:26-04:00September 30th, 2018|Apple, Technology|0 Comments

Apple Watch is eating into the traditional watch business. Now, analysts are predicting that demand for the Apple Watch this holiday season will eat at sales in the already-slowing traditional watch industry. If Apple is looking at wearables, should your business be too?

Facebook plunges more than 24 percent on revenue miss and projected slowdown

By |2018-07-28T10:35:39-04:00July 25th, 2018|Facebook, Technology|0 Comments

Facebook Inc’s shares lost as much as a quarter of their value on Wednesday (7/25/18) after executives said that profit margins would plummet for several years due to the costs of improving privacy safeguards and slowing usage in the biggest advertising markets. Worldwide daily user growth for Facebook’s namesake service slid for its sixth straight quarter, bringing it to nearly 1.5 billion users in the second quarter.

Adults Need to Engage in Vigorous Debates. Facebook Should Not Be Policing it.

By |2018-04-16T05:18:37-04:00April 15th, 2018|Facebook, Technology|0 Comments

I was able to watch quite a bit of Facebook CEO's Mark Zuckerberg's testimony in front of the Senate this past week. After years of following facebook issues, I learned nothing new. This is a company that is a monopoly and needs to be regulated along with Google, Amazon and may

Working with Millenials can be a Challenge…

By |2018-03-05T06:50:46-05:00December 28th, 2016|Technology, The Blog|0 Comments

Through no fault of their own, Millenials have suffered from bad parenting skills. Growing up with instant gratification, being told they are special and that they had to follow their passion, make an impact or have a purpose in life, Millenials arenot finding instant life or job satisfaction. These concepts were taught throughout a Millenials childhood by both parents and society and has made Millenials ill prepared for the corporate world. It will take strong leaders to address this problem but only if they can identify it. It is something I am constantly aware of with Mellinials, especially after beating my on Social Media addiction.

Breathing Some Life into an old MAC. Now I Just Need Apps.

By |2017-10-12T17:28:12-04:00October 6th, 2016|Technology, The Blog|1 Comment

I added an original Mac Mini 1,1 to my little collection of Macs. This particular model is 10 years old. I acquired it a few weeks back and decided to see if I could go breathe some life into an old Mac as a backup to my other macs. You can easily find Mac Mini's on eBay for less than $100. Here are a few of the things you can and cannot do on Mac's today as opposed to 10 years ago...

While millennials may be unfairly caricatured as socially inept much the way boomers are wrongly dismissed en masse for poor technical chops, the trends in companies' staffing needs are unmistakable. Gen X-ers, on the other hand, may be more likely to prove communication maestros by comparison.

This is what it’s like to grow up in the age of likes, lols and longing

“I don’t feel like a child anymore” she says. “I’m not doing anything childish. At the end of sixth grade” — when all her friends got phones and downloaded Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter — “I just stopped doing everything I normally did. Playing games at recess, playing with toys, all of it, done.” This article probably should have been titled "How Technology is Stealing Our Kids Childhoods"

The sad reason many people love their Apple Watch – CNET

By |2016-05-16T09:24:47-04:00May 16th, 2016|Apple, Technology|0 Comments

People sit in meetings with laptops in front of them and talk over the top of them. They go to dinner, place their phones on the table and pick them up at least every five minutes to see whether something vital has happened in the (ir) world. Does the Apple Watch really make it better? Or will it finally destroy any concept we have of eye contact?
