    What a question! And I'm not referring to the mortgage one although it also thought provoking. To change someone or our own mindset is difficult yes, but I think that in this era of technology unstoppable change and evolution we are inclined to do so or almost obliged if we don't want to fail into being part of society. Maybe what I'm saying sound dramatic, but I believe that sooner or later we won't belong to society if we don't adapt and keep an open mind.Great share @Sasa Radovic

    #16 I really wanted to cover AR in this article as well but I didn't want to make it too long! Augmented reality has taken off in a large way especially within marketing. Some of the things they can do now are incredible, take the catalogue app from Ikea, where you can place desired items in your house in full size, or the lego marketing ploy that lets you see the finished product in front of your eyes before even leaving the store! There are even some incredible apps available for smartphones that utilise AR technology

    It has already reached the point of saturation into our culture. Can you trust a picture to be of an actual event anymore? VR and AR have become interchangeable already in our world. In very real and abstract ways we are already merging with our tech. This of course was inevitable, we have always sought a better stick. We were set on this path when we learned to convert matter to energy. Considering matter is only energy behaving cohesively, there must be a basic set of instructions, or program running we call god. I suspect we are a virus...

    #9 The Matrix theory! Interesting concept but I´m not convinced. The fact that I am born of human and not grown in a test tube is enough proof for me to know I am real and not the digital recreation of someone or somethings imagination. However the concept of the virtual world will only get better with time and our wildest Sci Fi dreams are only a stones throw across the lake! Once we learn to master this tech, and systems get faster and stronger, the more I think VR and AR will be integrated into the real world meaning we will live our lives simultaneously, in both the real and digital world. I actually wanted to include a comparison to AR in this post but I decided to keep it short, Maybe I will do that for my next post. Thank you for your comments @William VanDorin

    When virtual reality approaches the tangibility of actual reality, how will you argue which is more valid? Can you conclusively prove you are not in a virtual landscape at this moment? One could argue that the basic and often painful consequences of physics serves as proof... but would that not be programed into the basic parameters?

    Once again a fascinating glimpse into the issues of the future. Once again I turn to my background dealing with blackbox trading of equity derivatives. High Frequency Trading Groups have a kill switch that's very basic function is to close all open positions, or cancel any outstanding orders when a significant event causes a huge spike in volatility. Problems arise when these market makers disappear suddenly from the market causing further volatility spikes. The debate continues, but certainly kill switches, circuit breakers, and other tools will be necessary to avoid a War Games like scenario.

    #25 There are a lot of recent articles, Nick, starting with the one about the young men who walked on some of the most delicate parts of the hot springs. Or the story about the couple who put a bison calf in the back of their car because they thought it looked cold and scared. Or the recent one of a guy who was illegally walking on the hot springs and fell in - there's nothing left of him. There's also a story about a woman who was charged by an elk after getting too close, and a young woman who was gored by a bison when she got too close. It's absurd, really. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/animalia/wp/2016/05/16/baby-bison-dies-after-yellowstone-tourists-put-it-in-their-car-because-it-looked-cold/

    13/06/2016 #23 Sarah Elkins
    Good points here, @David B. Grinberg. I'm not a big believer in work/life balance because I just call it balance. We can no longer separate our professional and personal lives, so we need to find balance across all of our activities. The bigger issue here, I think, is the clear disconnect from the natural world, mostly as a result of our hyper-connected lives. Recent news from Yellowstone National Park makes that crystal clear.

    Great observations @David B. Grinberg... As technology continues to make every thing more accessible faster and virtually present, disconnecting is harder as you stated. Balance is needed to achieve recovery, rest and a happy contentment; and we should always work to provide for our life and not live solely for the business place.

    My philosophy & insight on workload/business came from a very mature wise person who taught Karate' his whole life. He once said to me :" Bill, to remain balance in life you need to keep these three things in this order & you will be happy. He said if they go out of the following order stated you will have issues, confusion & be imbalanced as a person. The 1st item is God, the 2nd item is family & the 3rd is work." Makes sense & early in my career I did not follow at times but always got back on track here. My words of wisdom for this Sunday for all my Bee's.

    Hi David, I am glad you cast further insight on workload/business and well-being interconnection as it is the foundation on which I based my current HandOnWeb project- to create a community-driven space for consulting on the latter main streams via in-circle networking. I believe that people enhance quality of life through improving business or working practices, and vice versa, so it is essential to raise awareness around it in an interactive environment of trust, expertise and referrals.

    Well, isn't 'work-life balance' a burning question? One simple solution: as you take 'day as day' and 'night as night', then think of what you're accountable at workplace and what role you have in your personal and social life. Stick to your commitments honestly and, in that way, you'll balance the work with success, and live your life, at peace. Let’s attune right balance for healthier lives!

    @David B. Grinberg! This is an excellent buzz, mentioning a very crucial issue. It's surely a difficult task to draw a clear line between our professional attachment with the work and personal life. The technology, a sort of, compels people to remain on duty after duty hours even if somebody is not working on a home-based job. In the longer run, I fear an absence of discipline and a growing lack of teamwork if we continue to allow the technology to take over our professional and personal life. The most viable solution, in my opinion, is that we should very clear objectives about using technology for professional purposes, and should stick to those objectives firmly. We should not turn ourselves technology addicts. The problem is not just growing professional use of technology, the problem is that we are becoming technology addict. Unless we control our spending of time on these technologies. Unless we have clear mind as how and when to use the. Unless very are stick to the objectives we formed about the use of any technologies, the required work-life balance is hard to achieve.

    @William Davis: Quite pertinent and succinct, especially for professionals of today. Two thoughts: (1) Your comment, "Networking. Do you know what it is? How it works? Can I do it?" surprised me. Gosh, if someone about to go into Consulting doesn't know what Networking is by now, then that's a "One Stop Shopping" place to stop, and "Do Not Pass 'Go'" until the network is established. That's my thought, until one has a social following of at least 5000 contacts. Would love your opinion on this ~ how many Followers (that truly believe in you as a person) does one need to have before beginning to 'hang out the sign' that one is Open for Business? And (2) wrt the sharing of ideas, the field of medicine can be full of thievery and bullies. It is notorious for this, so one strong recommendation I have is this: Do Not Share Ideas with anyone until you FIRST have a signed and fully executed Confidentiality Agreement. People will steal your ideas. I jumped on the bandwagon with your high-resolution image here, too ~ eye grabbing and perfect for your discussion!

    #12 @ @Franci Eugenia Hoffman - That is true. But even if we ignore the risk involved in having some other than yourself hold important and sensitive data on your behalf, we need to understand that cloud-based computing will continue to fail at times when a robust internet connection is not available -- for example, most of the time while flying on a commercial airliner. To my mind, the situation with cloud-based computing is the usual one of marketing people running way out ahead of real-world fulfillment. Thank you for reading and commenting. Cheers!

    #7 @ @Pamela L. Williams - Yes, those of us who travel a lot know well the travails (travailia?) of cloud computing. If I were to rely entirely on cloud-based computing, every time I fly to Taiwan, I would lose more than a day's potential working time while in-flight. And BTW,don't believe for a minute that the airlines actually provide in-flight internet service. In my experience, fewer than 50% of planes have been fitted with the equipment, and of those which have, fewer that 20% of those are actually functional -- never mind the exorbitant fees for using it.

    #4 @ John Williams - I have no doubt that some people will find cloud-based computing satisfactory from an operational standpoint.

    #5 @Donna-Luisa Eversley - This is not a technical issue. It is simply the case that that universal, reliable, and robust WiFi and internet service does not yet exist. So if you base all your programs and data in "The Cloud", there will be times that you will be unable to work or access those programs and data files. My recommended approach for most small-business is to 1) work only with software that keeps a functioning copy on your local drive, 2) keep your critical current working files on a local drive or auxiliary drive, and 3) keep a mirror of your data files in the Cloud (which mirror is synced at regular intervals with your local files).

    Makes 100% sense @Phil Friedman, and there is also the caveat of public access. At one company I worked for it disallowed accessing the internet on company owned laptops if the source was public. That immediately ruled out airports, Starbucks, or any other public WiFi. I tried to do some urgent 'updates' from a hotel while on vacation and ended up having to call and walk a teammate through the fixes because the laptop wouldn't allow me to access the company system or the cloud. Secure; yes. Conducive to working on the road, No.

    I have a phobia against building on rented land. I do use the cloud for many things, but none of them are "mission-critical." (Sorry, for the use of an over-used phrase).

    @Phil Friedman great obsevations.The biggest challenge for entrepreneurs with cloud computing storage is access and integration when you need it ...as internet access is never always foolproof. As secondary storage i think its great. For small businesses and entrepreneurs it may be best to really evaluate backup options, because it can be an embarrassing situation. I can recall years ago launching an interactive website and visiting customers trying to illustrate how easy access was on tablet, mobile, and computer... well , that day there was a problem with access in the area...something happened to a cell tower and we could not get online. To make the time valuable, i thought to review offline some information with client and had no access to get in...

    I entered the world of NFC many years ago with a project to gather physical information about airline baggage that would exist only for the duration of loading on the plane. The idea was to associate the weight and dimensions of the bag to the RFID tag, compile and notify the freight people of available space on the plane for other stuff. I love the technology because the applications are almost limitless. Thanks for the post.

    Very nice. The first Agile project I worked on turned out to be a hybrid and it was the developers who were not agile and the business end that was...this had to do with resource availability and offshore programming where deliveries of code became stories in iterations and the deliverable for iterations often didn't include finished programming,, but some other aspect of the project.

    What a great article @Ekaterina Novoseltseva. I think in a day and age where people feel the pressures from internal and external factors, its important to feel in control of the work you do at work. Equally, to feel appreciated which improves productivity and gets results! Do you think this could be the new workforce trend?

    Macs do last longer. They get less viruses and malware and that's why they are more stable. Apple products are better built and their quality exceedes all other manufactures. The Mac and IPhone cases are aluminum not plastic.

    Good to know @Jim Cody, I think I would add that Mac's last longer. I don't know if it is because Mac doesn't get viruses as Pc's do but mine has lasted 8 years, something unthinkable with another laptop. I wouldn't switch to Android also anytime soon.

    I believe your experiences have taught you well because you own them. Your article reflects you're in control - "I believe I can master it as I have mastered many skills in my life." You will be noticed because you are noticed now, as a good writer. Good luck in your journey. and as @Kevin Pashuk stated "Work will come to the diligent".

    I feel like I'm eavesdropping on your self reflections @Phillip Hubbell. I fully agree that one gets pigeonholed into a category... "Hey the projector doesn't work! Call Kevin!" even though you have many other facets. I see you as a writer who does other things rather than someone who does things and writes on the side. I'm an avid photographer and musician, but I would starve if that's all I do. You sound very self aware. Keep pressing on my friend. Work will come to the diligent.

    #4 Yes! If you give them well use it is probable that laptops can last so much (depending on also the needs of your profession regardings its use) It is a good decision to use it as back up, sometimes their good for using them as an "external hard drive" (I don't know if this is the right term in english)

    #3 I feel your pain, @NO one. I am surprised my 10 yr old laptop has lasted this long. I considered selling it since I have a new one but decided to keep it as a backup. It is smaller than my new one and easier to travel with. It's a Toshiba and I have never had a problem with it, except I wanted a larger screen. I couldn't get a Toshiba with a larger screen through my source so now I have a HP. So far, so good.

    My laptop (apple) is 7 years old, since I'm a designer I need a new one, because getting mine to work again or adjusted to new design software and more space is more expensive than buying just a new one (this is sad, but what happens with tech companies, they make this on purpose to incentive consumerism). Also I'm waiting for iPhone 7 to come out, I've been having some crappy phones for the last 3 years because they were cheap. At the end, cheap phones have made it impossible for me to even download beBee app on them, I rather spend some more but knowing that my iPhone 7 (taking care of it) will last maybe 2 or 3 years and it'll be a more economic decision. That is if I don't fall into the seductive smell of new tech as you mention @Kevin Pashuk!

    I am a Samsung fan. My husband and I both have a Galaxy 5. We upgrade every 2 years and so far, this model has served us real well. I have never had any of the Apple products but several computers by varying manufacturers. I have a laptop that is 10 yrs old and working perfectly. I just purchased a new laptop in order to get a larger screen. I buy mostly based on need but I am attracted to all of the bells and whistles that make the devices easy to use, innovative and fun.

Blackberries were a great thing at that time, iPhone changed the world, but the stop to innovate and I can say - in my opinion- Samsung S7 Edge is the best mobile phone by far !!!
