Joined Jim Polito to talk about why haven't we done a lot about cyber security in the past years, that even Yahoo's billions of accounts have been hacked.

How much security do we actually get from a “secure” website via HTTPS? Not much, as it turns out. Today Craig talks about the history behind this executive order and what “secure server” really means.

Craig also tells you how you can establish your own HTTPS Secure Server for free! That’s right, there are actual free-for-life SSL certificates you can use for your business or community organization. :)

Joined Jim Polito to talk about how soon robots and automated services may take over jobs today. Not too soon as some may fear, but what are the types of jobs that would be first on the list in case it does.

And with the jobs such as delivery of packages now being done by Amazon and 7-Eleven, we now have majority of services being done by robots.

It’s a really bad time to be a Gmail user, and I wouldn’t want to be Google either. There’s a new type of phishing attack that’s using a simple form of doxxing that is almost guaranteed to catch you off guard. It’s going to let them get into your Gmail account, which means that they’re going to be able to get at your bank account information and you know where that leads. You’re also going to be an unsuspecting dupe in spreading their attack to all of your friends.

In today’s Tech Sanity Check I explain exactly what’s going on and the two ways you can use to protect yourself — unless you’re the President of the US.

Turns out the Facebook/Zuckerburg thirst for a Facebook hardware product may cost them $3 billion. Lack of Due Diligence, bad Employment Agreements and more may have made the perfect storm in this court case. So much so, the Zuck has come out of his extended hiding and flown to Texas for court.

The financial services industry has been co-operating with each other to help stop cyber-crime, but they're obviously getting tired of being sued. So, instead of beefing up their operations to lessen the odds of being sued it looks like they'd much rather just pass the responsibility onto the Feds -- who can't be sued when there's a hacker attack. Also, why the inevitable financial services attack would mean an increase in mortgage failures along with civil unrest.

All in all, a busy Craig Peterson Tech Sanity Check today.

Apple's seen strong performance lately with the iPhone, but that market's going to slow down dramatically in the months and years ahead. So, what's next? Apple has always relied on big innovations that quickly bring in bundles of cash, but if they start "producing" scripted TV and new Movies it's a much different business model. Will they survive?

Trump's nominees are starting to have their Senate hearings, and as predicted its entirely political, with no mention of tech jobs. H1B visa at companies like InfoSys and Tata are really hurting the tech jobs sector. When will the focus at the hearings change?

How real are the news that you are reading, listening, and watching about?

When your social media newsfeed is catered to only what you like, you probably are going to get only the reports that are to your preference. And this means that you are more like to not see the other side of the story.
