Google Home Progress

It's sad to say that Google again is failing to fix it's Nest disaster. They keep on making promises that they never keep and if it keeps up the future for Nest can be their end. 

Legacy Nest users can still use the old app but if you buy a new camera you are forced to use the Google Home app, now this does not make sense. And recording is just a mess, I am ready to throw in the towel and start looking for other alternatives. Thanks Google for wasting my money and making a new paperweight for my desk. 

If you are looking into Nest products, stop do your research and think again.


Amazon Miscalculation

Amazon recent promotions for managers faced a big problem. The software miscalculated employees who were promoted and affected a number of employees.

My suggestion is first to test drive the site and the switch is worth it, then pay for the premium service for the extra storage. 


Equifax Wage War

It looks like Equifax recently fired some remote staff members that were working second jobs and this brings a new attention to the next generation employee monitoring software.

It's going to be interesting to see if other companies start following this procedure.

Pretty smart move for SpaceX. 



How much Internet Speed to I need

This is a question that I always get; it depends from person to person. Some users would need more speed if their kids do gaming or are running security cameras throughout their house and are using their wifi. But the majority of the users who do not have this problem can use the chart below.

Note : Don't fall for those salesman scams that you need gigabyte service. You are just wasting money. Gigabyte is way to advance and it will be a few more years before anyone trully gets full capacity. My advise is start low and gradually increase your internet plan as your broadband needs get bigger.

It's bad enough that their economy is not doing well, but a recent test to stop password sharing in the country has started a social media boycott. 

Now it's going to be tough for some locations but if Netlfix does not make a firm stand for its subscription services, the future growth of this company will be questionable. Let's see what moves they make next. 


Amazon IP Inaction

A group of hackers again were able to get control of Amazon's IP addresses to hack some crypto users and when all the dust cleared these thieves were able to drain $235,000 from crypto users. 

It's another deja vu from Amazon, and they should have learned from the 2018 attack that their systems need to be changed.
