Business owners nowadays are facing an interesting dilemma. We have a workforce that is increasingly interested in unrestricted work space. At the same time, we have a society that places higher demands on information security than ever. The conflict that arises and becomes a real struggle for companies is finding a balance between giving employees the freedom to maneuver and securing the data that the company stores from breeches. The only advice the I have in dealing with that struggle is that you need to find the balance that works for your team.
Sometimes you get creatively stuck. From writer's block to the inability to overcome objections, to being just plain cloudy, a creative rut can cause all sorts of slowdowns in your day to day life and on the way to your goals. Here's something I tried out to help me, and considering how easy it is to actually do it, I recommend it to you.
It's been busy out there in the world this week. Agricultural industries have been showing interest in new technology to make farming far simpler. Major financial institutions have decided to take on personal finance startups over security concerns. And developers' environmental impacts will be a decision for the people. Check out what's happening this week in the news.
This week has an amalgam stuff to report on in the news. It's so dramatically varied by type that it's a little refreshing, let me tell you. Beacon technology has become useful and affordable for small businesses as well as big. Small businesses have begun to snub the SHOP exchanges, raisin questions about its value.

Here's what's going on this week in the news.
Does your computer run slower than it used to? Does it seem to freeze up or have problems it didn't used to? Are you about ready to throw it out a 5th floor window? Computers can slow down for dozens of reasons. From unnecessary clutter on the hard drive to hardware failures, computer freezes and slowdowns can bring a halt to your day. But what do you do about it? Before you head to some big-box electronics store to buy your next system, we've got a suggestion. We recommend a PC tuneup.
As technology and society continues to change and evolve, its interesting to watch the ways the two commingle. There are so many different factors that come in to play at the intersection of the two that the natural evolution of each can be both predictable and erratic at the same time. However, every now and then you witness a blend that's so nearly seamless it stops you for a second. I want to share my most recent experience with you.
It's interesting to watch businesspeople who have to work while traveling. They have strange rituals that they go through, including finding restaurants and coffee shops to spend 90% of their time away from the hotel at. Those restaurants and coffee shops all have one thing in common; WiFi. In fact, that seems to be the only qualification that matters when you do business from the road, even to the point where the health and nutrition provided by the food is obviously nonexistent. I know that it used to be a major factor for me when I traveled. That is until I discovered that I've had the secret to those problems in my pocket all along.
Seriously, that title isn't science fiction any more. Cars are now so connected that, without solid security implementation, they can be hacked. And that means exactly what you think it does. Today I want to talk about this situation, which was brought to my attention as a result of a safety recall issued by Chrysler. Welcome to the future, folks!
