I am a river to my people

When I think about the sheer volume of content I put out there for my followers in my columns, articles three blogs, podcast and book, I feel like Anthony Quinn in the movie "Lawrence of Arabia."

Tried this French dairy product

It tastes like the insides of a camembert. It's kind of good and kind of bad at the same time.

This is actually a really great idea!

They won't charge your phone all the way. But they do fit nicely in a pocket.

BYOG (bring your own glasses) will bring headaches for IT

(Read my column: https://goo.gl/kXxf71 )

The trickle of smart glasses entering enterprises on the faces of employees this year will become a flood in the years ahead.

As the use of smart glasses becomes more ubiquitous in the workplace, the challenges for IT departments and, indeed, for enterprises generally will grow.

And while the future of smart glasses is just now coming into focus, the unexpected consequences of this trend remain unclear.

What I believe is certain is that smart glasses are coming, they’re going mainstream, and very few organizations are ready for what’s coming.

Let’s take a look:

Welcome to the era of self-destructing gadgets, from phones to drones

(Read my article: https://goo.gl/ckS16V )

The old Mission Impossible TV series was 1960s cool. But star Peter Graves never told us how those recorded messages were able to “self-destruct in five seconds.” Neither did Tom Cruise.

Mission Impossible gadgets self-destruct for one reason: To erase data. Great idea, Hollywood!

But the U.S. military has an even better idea: What about gadgets that self-destruct so completely you can’t even tell they were ever there? And what if those gadgets weren’t Peter Graves’s reel-to-reel tape recorders or Tom Cruise’s exploding sunglasses, but all manner of wearables, smartphones, laptops, and even drones?

The Pentagon is working on devices for soldiers and spies that can explode, melt, liquify, evaporate, or otherwise self-destruct on command, on a schedule, or under specific environmental conditions. Tech companies and research universities are working on such technologies, too.
