Business Deal - Millennial Style

As I read these posts, I thought to myself this sounds very fitting for 2017, very, well, "millennial." Talks between Google and phone maker HTC were not secret. But in a somewhat surprise move, Google didn't buy them outright, they just rented or leased some employees. In the $1.1 billion deal "some 2,000 HTC employees will move over to work at Google on devices such as the upcoming Pixel 2, which should give even more control over how it develops its own smartphone hardware."

More and more surreal

As more and more information unfolds about the Equifax breach, it gets more and more surreal. I'm starting out with a post from Brian Krebs who corrects some false information circulating out there. In the second post, we read about Equifax's twitter account "helping" people by sending them to a fake website a security researcher created! Lastly we have an interesting analysis of potential payout scenarios and a "dirty little secret" about these kinds of lawsuits. Krebs has compared Equifax's breach response to a dumpster fire, "noting that it could hardly have been more haphazard and ill-conceived." Make that a melted dumpster in the desert with raging green fires. Read more at:

News

Ron Friedmann posts about what he thinks is the "first instance of blockchain being used in software targeted, at least in part, to legal operations and law practice management." As far as I am aware, he is correct. But here is the most powerful piece of what Ron wrote, "As you think about blockchain, keep in mind that the duty of tech competence many US states establish for lawyers may someday include being able to understand the details here." Blockchain, AI - all these require understanding. Read more at Prism Legal: Blockchain for Law Practice Management - A First?
