A fascinating study from the UK on the real cost of employees. According to the study, the highest cost incurred by a new business is the hiring of its first full-time employee.  Subsequent hirings are brought in a lower cost over time.  The study suggests that small businesses could realize a cost saving by hiring more workers. Interesting conclusion. Aloha, Russ.

Not only does it help you stay in contact with your team members no doubt scattered across the globe, but Skype also helps consultants and other business professionals stay in touch with their clients.

Skype is a pretty good tool for a variety of business and personal applications.  Here are four alternative systems that could be more efficient and useful for your business:

8X8:  this system features a "squeeky clean" user interface.

RingCentral:  this system emphasizes security.

SnapComms: this system focuses on internal business communications.

DialMyCalls:  this system is useful for broadcasting company messages.

You may want to test a few of these alternative communications systems.  Aloha, Russ.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, November 1, 7:48 PM

User privacy is a big topic these days.  I'm not surprised that this viewer was concerned about the monitoring capabilities of his new "smart tv." This is really a cautionary tale for all of us.  Digital devices often come at the loss of personal identity and security. This article reminds me of the "telescreens" used in George Orwell's "1984", which monitored everything people said or did in their apartments and at their jobs.  If personal security is a concern, don't buy these devices. The same goes for smartphones, which can be tapped by various government agencies.  Of course, life would be a bit more difficult without these wonderful devices--so use them with care and be cautious with whom you share your personal information.  You can integrate digital devices into your life, but remember these tools can be used for other purposes not intended by the manufacturer.  I suppose you can't escape the intrusions, because these devices are seen as necessary tools for business, education, and science.  Just be careful how you use them.  As for "smart tvs", the choice is yours.  Privacy or convenience.  A tough choice in some cases.  I've chosen to do without this sophisticated television  set.  My money is spent on more important things, such as food, housing, health, and transportation. Your mileage may vary.  Aloha, Russ.

Alas, the drone wars have begun. If this keeps up, we will have armies made from drones, fighting wars managed by drones, and governments run by drones.  Drones could make humans obsolete.  A far-fetched idea, to be sure. But, we've seen some strange happenings this century. Science fiction is becoming science fact.  Beam me up, Scotty.  Aloha, Russ.

This does relate perfectly to the lasers I posted an article about. I'm sure America is developing similar technologies and yet we don't hear anything about it.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, November 2, 11:50 PM

A fascinating and somewhat frightening article from "arstechnica.com" concerning the jump in virtual reality devices from the computer gaming community to the general population.  Not everyone will make the transition well.  Studies show that 10 to 20 percent of those using these advanced VR devices experience discomforting reactions such as nausea.  A far greater fear is the complete blending of VR with the real world and the inability of some people to tell the difference between the two.  This theme has been explored in films such as the "Matrix Trilogy" and "The Hunger Games."  Science fiction has explored this territory several times, often with the warning: "Be careful what you wish for." These devices will definitely affect the neural connections in the brain, hopefully for the better.  I have my doubts, though.  VR devices are the perfect tool to indoctrinate the clueless.  After a few generations of altering peoples' concept of reality, those who wield the real power in our world will be in a perfect position to maintain an authoritarian state.  George Orwell's "1984" is becoming scientific fact.  You've been warned.  Aloha, Russ.
