Thought Of The Day

I don’t know how we keep up with our lives online because all the usernames and passwords to remember. Just think of all the apps on your phone and sites on your laptop/tablet that must have login information to provide. When you migrate to a new device you have to recall all that information to be able to use those services. Yes there are password managers and the like but you know those require usernames and passwords too. I am sure you have the same experiences too. Frustrating, oh yes.

I got a new phone yesterday. The Google Pixel 2 XL is a great device and I got an incredible deal on it at Walmart. The reason I chose this instead of the Pixel 3 is the price and is still a big step up from the Pixel XL I have had the past couple of years. When I got my first pixel I anticipated upgrading to this phone anyway and the 3 was a surprise. So my posts will be just as nerdy and pictures will look amazing. Google has it going on with phones these days, all the cool nerds have these.

Isaac Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics”

In the age of robotics and automation we should be aware of Issac Asimov’s three rules of robotics. Human beings need to be mindful of these rules when building and programming these aware machines. Smart and forward thinking from this noted futurist and writer.

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm

2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

The New and Improved tonyburgess1969.net

Announcing my new and improved blog look for 2018. I have taken the four-year-old Twenty Fourteen and have tweaked the CSS to make it look very blue which is very me. I am a big fan of white font on dark backgrounds because I think its much easier to read and it gives it a certain style.

Twenty fourteen allows me to pull in my blogging community in a very effective way too because I am looking at making my blog the central social network for me in the coming year. Not only is my blog where I express myself its also a connection hub too for you the followers.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

I make phone calls for a living and I used a computer based phone system. This headset is something I use daily. Without it my job would be very difficult.
