Beware! A new Facebook malware hack is being sent to users via Facebook Messenger
Over the weekend, a Facebook friend of mine noticed an odd message (via Facebook Messenger) was sent to her from someone who normally only communicates by leaving comments on my friend's timeline, not by messages. I also received the same message from this person (she is also a Facebook friend of mine), though I hadn't been on Facebook, never clicked on it, and just took a screen shot of this message today:Read more
2017 Tech Rewind by Month
Seems like 2017 went by too quickly. Maybe because of all the new technology coming at us, time just rushed by. Maybe because of Moores Law - you know, the law that says technology exceeds itself every three months - we were so preoccupied with all the new tech advancements and gadgets, we didn't notice time slipping on by.

And then, once the Internet became more popular about the same time (and especially toward the end of the 1990s and early 2000s), things really began to pick up.

Fanuc, the robotics company behind the metal casings for iPhones, is accelerating the fear of lost jobs due to robots
Whether or not jobs will be lost due to the greatly increasing trend of manufacturers, and retailers, to use more and more robotic systems to perform assembly and other production duties remains to be seen for certain. In my opinion, the less jobs available, the less people have the finances to purchase robotic-manufactured products and goods, and so the less money and product demand these companies will experience.
