Joining Jim Polito for another Tech Talk on his show over at WTAG.

We discussed how a Google hack was done using an invite via Google docs. And even though it wasn't as alarming as it sounds by not making it in the news, everyone should still stay vigilant of how even a simple Google doc file will penetrate your privacy and security.

Also, how far is artificial intelligence (AI) going? Is this the future where robots will be taking over, starting with jobs?

Joined Jack Heath this morning to discuss what's new with Uber, the car transportation service widely-known and used by using their app. Just recently there has been a gray area where if you are interested in driving for Uber, you might want to be aware of the city or state restrictions defined for Uber pick-up and drop-offs.

What's interesting about this? Uber is possibly up on federal criminal charges.
