Echo/Google Home infinite loop - YouTube. I have both an Echo Dot and a Google Home device on my desk in my office. No, I don't need both; but, I do review this stuff on the blog. So, I was intrigued by this YouTube video, in which a user got the two devices talking to each other in an infinite loop. In fact, while I was playing the video, the use of the Alexa catchword set off the Echo Dot in my home office. Talk about the invasion of the speaking bots. I wonder what would happen if you got an army of these devices all talking to each other simultaneously. I smell a new hit song for Xmas.
NCIS: Gibbs' Rules - NCIS. Gibbs doesn't like lawyers; well, maybe a couple of them. Thankfully, Rule 13 is more honored in the breach, than in the observance. As Rules to live by, you could do worse than Gibbs' Rules. For instance, Rule 11: "When the job is done, walk away". This one can be applied to the lawyer who keeps talking after the Judge rules in his favor, or after the witness says what he wants to hear. Shut up, and move on. Or Rule 18, which has informed much of FutureLawyer's life: "It is better to ask forgiveness, than permission". My final favorite is Rule 45: "Clean up your messes". This one can be applied in many ways; but, they all involve taking responsibility for your own problems. Now, get out there and create your own rules.
Cyber Monday. There are all sorts of bargains on the web today for geeks and gadget lovers. Frankly, a lot of these deals are available for the whole week. My favorite so far, however, is only available today. I have had a Typepad blog since 2005, which is 11 years in people time. So, it is a safe bet that, unless I have another heart attack, that I will be blogging for at least another year. So, this 25% discount for an annual renewal will save me $75 over the next year. Now, I just have to live long enough to enjoy it. :-)
Law Latte Blog � Blog Archive � FutureLawyer%u2019s Next Office Miriam Robeson posts this suggestion for the next FutureLawyer office. I agree. How cool would it be to come to work and sit in the cockpit of an airplane? However, I would want a working version, so that I could take off and move the office every now and then. Of course, I would have to learn to fly. Oh well.
