Call me silly, but if I was being ousted from a job, where crap like that was taking place, I’d be all about finding a way to persecute the person that assigned that error rate.

Technology is a double-edged sword in some ways. There’s no question that virtually every aspect of our lives is immensely better because of the advances in technology. So much so, that often, especially the younger among us, can’t imagine a life without it.
Yet because I’m an old dinosaur, I am often wary of just how advanced we’re becoming, and how accepting of newer technologies we are. The evolution of the Internet of things, has our doorbells connected, or appliances connected, our thermostats connected, our voices connected.
Smart homes allow you to unlock or lock your door via smart phone. Nest systems allow you to control your indoor temperature via your phone from a thousand miles away. You speak to a little round cube and this cube researches things, adjusts your lights, turns on your sous vide machine.
