RoboLawyer? RoboWorm Is More Likely

While many of us think of robots as human like creatures that will steal human jobs, the reality is that robots are already here, and they look nothing like us. Industrial robots have been building cars and other stuff for decades. As science finds ways to miniaturize computer circuitry, many shapes and sizes of robots are being created to perform tasks that humans can't. A new cylindrical robot that can grow into tight spaces is the newest form of robot that can be used to search rubble in collapsed buildings, or slither into any tight space for any task required. So, the next time some Hollywood producer films a scifi movie about a Terminator style robot pillaging the countryside, consider that robots are far more likely to save human lives in the future than to take them. I would much prefer a movie about RoboWorm.          Related StoriesYour Future With GoogleArtificial Intelligence Isn't Very Intelligent After AllElon Musk : Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid  [...]

This is a great article by Nicole Black on the trend towards mobile lawyering. I am proud to be at the tip of that spear, and have been for over 20 years. Recent tech advances have actually made it possible to practice law from a Smartphone, and to do anything on the phone that can be done in a traditional office. The big risk is mobile security, and I always recommend encryption, two factor authentication, and third factor where possible. Read and learn, grasshopper.           Related StoriesPractice Resource Institute - Security Awareness Tip of The DayPowerLine - Phone Status Bars That Are Always There#WhyIAmASolo - I Seldom Have To Go To Meetings  [...]

This will hold dozens of drive images for the typical computer, and is more storage than you are likely to need, ever. You should be imaging your drive and backing up essential files on a daily or thrice weekly basis at a minimum; especially with the newer viruses and exploits going around. Inoculate yourself. Back up early. Back up often. It is easy. Be careful out there.           Related StoriesEcho Show - Watch Amazon VideoData Security?

Life is a stressful existence. Stress is good for us, in limited quantities. The attraction of Stoicism to me is that it offers practical advice and strategies to deal with stress. Most of what we stress about is outside our control. Once we do what we can, it is counterproductive to worry about it. Then, we start worrying about what other people think, whether this or that client will hire us or like us, or whether we win or lose a hearing or trial. Enough. Read this quote from Daily Stoic and think about what you are stressing about today. Then, stop. "How much of your time is spent thinking about what that rude person said to you? Or whether so-and-so will like you. Or if your coworker will follow through on their part of the assignment? And not just time. How much anguish, angst, and anxiety has it caused you? How much sleep have you lost because of these things outside of your control? Marcus Aurelius—someone who, as Emperor, had his share of critics and frustrating subordinates—said, "Tranquility...comes when you stop caring what they say. Or think, or do. Only what you do." How they feel isn’t in your control. What they do (or don’t do) isn’t in your control. What they think of you isn’t. You know what is? What you do. The actions you take. The actions you take in response to the actions they take (or don’t take). Focus on the part that’s in your control, stress only about what you do, and you’ll find the tranquility Aurelius was talking about."          Related StoriesPractice Resource Institute - Security Awareness Tip of The Day#WhyIAmASolo - I Seldom Have To Go To MeetingsStoic Comedy - Philosophy For Real People  [...]

Google Chromecast is a marvelous device. Anything on your phone can be wirelessly broadcast on your big screen over the same home network. YouTube videos, home movies, regular movies and anything on your phone can be controlled and watched on a sub $50 device plugged into a spare HDMI port on the back of your TV. Some bright bulb decided it would be a good idea to enable phone notifications on the Chromecast. The only problem is that the notifications pop up at all times during the broadcast. Some notifications are not for prime time viewing, are they? Or, during a presentation to a room of people, it probably isn't a good idea for a message to pop up that your significant other wants you stop and get something after work. Oops. Well, relax, because now you can turn off notifications during broadcasts. Thank God.           Related StoriesSometimes They Really Are Out To Get YouStoic Comedy - Philosophy For Real PeopleThis Is Not A Video Of Me Pressure Washing The Deck Last Saturday  [...]
