Tales from foreign lands

The French feel that My Friend doll Cayla is no friend to children. The Commission Nationale Informatique et Libertes (CNIL) served formal notice to Genesis Industries to "cease its 'serious breach of privacy' caused by the toys' lack of security." A Bluetooth-enabled talking/listening smart doll just can't catch a break. And speaking of breaks, it seems that the German government is preparing a bill to "mandate backdoors in encryption" allowing them to break into any encrypted device. Read more at:

Hidden AI

Watch and listen to Ronald van Loon give a 101-primer on artificial intelligence using very real world examples. AI is not JARVIS (not yet), but it is already hidden all around us. It is very basic, but at a little more than eight minutes, not bad if you want to help educate your peers. Read more at Data Science Central: What Is AI? | Artificial Intelligence For Beginners

Always Connected

Windows 10. But not just on a regular tablet. On a gigbit LTE-enabled, ARM-based, all day battery "Always Connected" tablet. The claim is that it "will change the world of work in the same way the public cloud has."

When top clients go belly up

Having lived through it at two firms, I can tell you Mike O'Horo isn't kidding when he talks about fortune 500 clients going belly up. His "Lessons for Lawyers" section has good information for everybody. Read more at attorney at work: Not If, But When, Your Fortune 500 Client Goes Out of Business

What was he thinking?

"A lawyer who convinced a client facing drug charges to transfer ownership of land worth $135,000 as payment for representing her in a case that ultimately required just 40 hours of work was indefinitely suspended by the Ohio Supreme Court Nov. 29."
