Spaghetti Should be for Dinner; Zoom Should be for Cars

2020 has taken a toll on all of us in one way or another. For those businesspeople who work from home, the pandemic has greatly exacerbated PowerPoint and zoom fatigue. Countless studies have shown that video conference interaction is not a proper substitute for in-person interaction (though the risks of this still outweigh the rewards), and more video conferences tend to lead to more PowerPoints, which, if done the wrong way, can increase feelings... Read more...

The Science Behind the Effectiveness Biden’s Eye Contact in Debate

If you happened to watch last night’s presidential debate, you may have thought at least two things: 1) Thank God this is the last one and 2) Does looking directly into the camera to make a statement make people feel more at ease or put off? Obviously not everyone will react the same to this tactic; however, even though consciously deliberate, Joe Biden effectively used the live video interaction to form a relationship and feeling of empathy with... Read more...

Your computer stops working. All your remote working has taken its toll on a personal laptop you never indented to use this extensively. You panic because you can’t go into the office, and there’s nothing your remotely-working IT person can do when your machine can’t turn on. What to do? Ship it back to the manufacturer? It could take weeks. Call the Geek Squad or your local tech repair shop? This may be the least bad option at this point. So... Read more...

What is “Legal Proof”? Optimize! Panelists Share a Decade of Use in Courts

In the early 2000’s, RPost coined the term “Legal Proof®” to describe what one received when they sent a Registered Email™ message. There is no such thing as “Illegal Proof”, so what could “Legal Proof®” really represent? We defined “Legal Proof®” as an email record that can serve as third-party evidence of the uniform timestamp of email sending, delivery, opening, and/or failure with cryptographically... Read more...

“The Hair of the Dog” Lives in Infamy

Most clichés originated from terms that were once clever, useful and connoted some broader meaning from hearing the phrase. These welcome, useful terms catch on and last over time but eventually get overused and then get relegated to cliché status. “The Hair of the Dog,” as an example, lives in infamy today to mean, ‘indulge again in what you overindulged, and you may feel better’. This term originated from a 16th century medical “remedy”... Read more...

Working from Home Continues to Test Patience of IT Administrators

Has this happened to you recently: You get an email from yourself asking you to click a link to see an agenda you didn’t write or for an invoice you never sent? The newest are people sending you pictures of checks that they supposedly put in the mail to you (hoping you click on the image which then makes nefarious things happen). Earlier this week I saw an email from myself with an exact duplicate of my own RPost signature asking me to click a... Read more...

A couple weeks ago, we at Tech Essentials highlighted how Lionel Messi could have saved himself a lot of trouble and even more money by using the Registered Email™ service included in RMail®. Instead of using Burofax (somebody, please find these guys another name!) he could have sent his notice to Barcelona in a Registered Email™ message, thus receiving forensic timestamped and authenticatable proof of content delivered.
