The downside of modern technology

Scams

We are living in a world in which we have to be vigilant regarding criminals who try to scam us. These criminals contact us via email and telephone. In some instances, their pitches are very intelligent and logical and, if you've been having computer problems for a month, for example, and you get a phone call from someone claiming to be a techie who does outsourced work for Microsoft, you might be tempted to allow him access to your computer. DON'T! A legitimate techie won't initiate a call to a potential client and Microsoft never initiates calls to clients or potential clients.

The Value of Online Reviews

Maybe I'm naive, but I think that it makes sense to look at online reviews before choosing venues for dining, working out, playing a sport, celebrating a milestone, etc.  It's even more important to read online reviews for health care providers, other professionals and service people.

The key is to look at the overall pattern of the reviews as reviewing a professional, service provider, or venue is a highly subjective activity: people's expectations and tastes vary.  As nobody and nothing is perfect, one reviewer can have a negative experience with a service provider, whereas five other reviewers can have a very positive experience with that same service provider.

Triangular Relationships

Happy New Year!

When I think of triangular relationships, I normally think of a man or woman cheating on his or her significant other.  That is not the kind of triangular relationship that I had in mind when I decided to write this blog. I'm referring, today, to that all too common, relatively new triangular relationship:  a man or a woman, his or her significant other, and a cell phone.  The offending party, typically, spends more time gazing into his or her cell phone than he or she spends gazing into the eyes of his or her mate.

Too Much Noise

Everyone is blogging these days and "people in the know", i.e., those with MBAs and SEO types are telling me that I should be blogging too.  Of course, since everyone else is blogging, I don't know why you need another blog to read, however, since I enjoy writing, I might as well take a stab at this and join the blogosphere.

I am going to share some reactionary feelings with you.  

I just saw a picture on Facebook that showed snow removal in the "good old days".  Those were the days before the Internet and cell phones, when people actually had a little peace and didn't have to check their phones, every five minutes, for fear of not getting back to a client instantaneously or making a friend wonder whether you're angry with him, sick, or even dead because you didn't respond to his e-mail within an hour.
