What do Musk, Jobs, defaults, poop, hoarders, quarks, planes, and the Super Bowl have in common? They're all on our summer reading list. 
Now that you’ve recovered from Mad Men’s final episode, you may be wondering, “What do I do now?” Time for our annual summer book list.

You might think, 2038? Almost a quarter century from now? Who cares? But it’s more likely to cause problems than you think. Some smartphones already have problems creating calendar entries past that date.
Have you rebooted your plane lately? A recent FAA warning points out the importance of properly using counters in your code.

The question is not CPU, but data representation in software.

It’s tempting to think you need to hire programmers from Silicon Valley or New York, but if everyone else thinks so too, there’s going to be a lot of demand for those people. If you’re in those areas, look outside, and if you’re already outside the traditional high-tech areas, look to hire local.
If you’ve been having trouble lately hiring programmers, developers, and other tech types, you’re not alone.

A judge has ruled that – following the lead of the Supreme Court ruling that a warrant was needed to search a cell phone – customs officials needed probable cause to search someone’s laptop. Why? Because the potential amount of personal data in a laptop makes such a search more like a strip search than searching a handbag.
Is a laptop more like a purse or a butt? Be prepared to explain your answer. Since August 2009, civil libertarians have objected to a Department of Homeland Security that enables U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents to search laptops and other electronic devices at the U.S. border, for large values of “at” – that is, within 100 miles of the border 100 miles might not sound like much, but according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACL...

Many processes—even complex ones—could be automated into workflows. Creating a workflow also gives organizations the opportunity to streamline a process to make it more efficient. But fewer than one out of 10 surveyed—regardless of size or department—reported using automated tools for this work. Instead, more than 80 percent of organizations reported using manual tools such as email, spreadsheets, phone calls, and personal visits to perform these work processes.
Automating regular business processes could save managers up to 40 percent of their time, says a new survey

A lot of companies are still looking for degrees+traditional experience and expecting to find out of the box thinkers that way. A lot of other companies punish the traits that come with those same out of the box thinkers like speaking the moment something comes across your mind that you know is a good idea and will solve the problem rather than waiting for all the bad ideas to be mentioned first, wasting a lot of time in the process.

Energy storage (heat storage, batteries, fuel cells, etc.)  - 
 
While power companies might not be thrilled at the notion that some of their biggest customers suddenly buy power when it’s cheap and not when it’s expensive, the ability to limit peak loads helps reduce power company costs, both on operating the power plant and its various energy sources, and in being able to build smaller power plants in the future. 
You might not be able to afford a Tesla electric vehicle anytime soon, but you might end up having a Tesla electric battery in your data center.

Somebody claiming to be from this company just came to our door, with no identifying logos or anything, and started asking about our medical conditions. Not only is this inappropriate and a violation of our privacy, it's a violation of national HIPAA regulations. I suggest you ask your salespeople to follow the law before somebody with more time on their hands than I decides to take you to court.
