If you missed last weeks topics on AM900 CHML here is what you missed with Adam Oldfield on the Bill Kelly Show! Building a better airplane seat: London-based design firm PearsonLloyd is looking to give the dreaded economy chair a reboot with the goal of making planes more fuel-efficient and giving passengers some relief. The Eco Seat has a carbon fiber composite shell and a curved spine, which reduces the chair’s weight, creates additional free space for passengers and is more ergonomically friendly than standard airplane seats. It’s also made of recycled aircraft aluminum and wool, adding to its environmental benefits. https://www.dezeen.com/2018/04/24/pearsonlloyd-economy-class-aeroplane-seat-design/ The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a fatal crash involving a Tesla Model S. The car crashed and caught fire in Florida on Tuesday, killing two teens and injuring a third. The probe will focus on the vehicle’s battery — not the semi-autonomous Autopilot system, which is…

BITCOIN, Even though it’s dropped to less than $11,000 in the past week Bitcoin continues to be used as a resource for people selling their home. You can now purchase a 5250-acre property for to 2.1 million or 124 Bitcoins. The main reason is the currency is available to be exchanged anywhere in the world. Allowing you to travel and use it anywhere. It’s hard to believe that in 2010 – in Florida a kid paid 10,000 bitcoins for 2 pizzas.  Today that pizza would be worth about $141Million. Stripe (online payment) no longer will allow for accepting BITCOINS along with a few other as the fee’s and transaction confirmations are taking too long. https://mashable.com/2018/01/23/bitcoin-stripe-payment-transactions-ending/#dsaBohjUsaq2 You know sometimes your legs can’t hold out and there is now airbags…

What happens when Internet of Things does an update and software doesn’t make it better but actually disables it? This is the case with the Lock Lockstate Company. The software update actually disabled one of their models and now it will take between 5 to 18 days for it to be repaired. The good news is, it comes with a key. However, keep in mind the  “Internet of Things”,  which is products that are controlled and updated by the internet also can have a situation where your bad review can also result in an inactive product. In the case where a gentleman and the states had a garage door with a video camera and left a bad review on Google and they disabled his garage door completely. https://newsstand.google.com/articles/CAIiEDX3dlmyQvyegg__jfaRLxIqIggEKhoIACIQd3d3Lm1hc2hhYmxlLmNvbSoECAowCDChmB4 As the season’s almost over barbecues are getting smarter.

Drone takes over office lights

Drone takes over office lights

by: Adam

Last week was a massive attack on servers through the Internet of Things. Adam Oldfield talked on 900 CHML Tech Talk about a lot of cool technology however we haven’t talked about the security that goes with it. This is a video that was done with a drone and hacks Philips light bulbs inside a building from outside drone. It is only a sample to explain how the power of security is critical when it comes to this new technology. LED lights come with the ability to be controlled with your smartphone. However, it costs extra to get the security installed. A new regulatory body is in the works for the United States to put security regulations for anything that has an internet-connected device to it.  Here is a video showing how it works!   Adam Oldfield, President of FPM3 can be heard Fridays on 900 CHML 11:30am with Bill Kelly….

Google has changed to rules of FREE to FEE

by: Adam

    It appears that with all things that are “FREE” there eventually comes a time when it’s going to have a cost associated to it.  I was informed on December 5, 2012 that the Google Business Apps (small business) is no longer free.  You used to get to setup your business (1 person to 3 people) to share calendars and have access to their programs online that share in the cloud.  Such as Insight.ly and other CRM tools.  These are now coming at a cost and you can no longer access this without making a payment and signing up. The cost isn’t huge mind you, but the chances of trying it are over.   The cost is now $50 per person, per year.  You get 25G of email through Gmail and you can register your MX (Mail Exchange) to go through google so GMail can be your email and you…

by: Adam

Some of the features coming out are exactly earth shattering as they have been around with the android system for the past couple of years. However, there have been many and prudence to what Apple is trying to do this includes a new map program that is completely unique to Apple. After they’ve licensed software from tom-tom they been able now to create their own mapping system to their mobile units no longer needing Google as a resource to get people places or to find information. Apple claims they’ll have access to 100 million businesses that you’ll be able to search online for their mapping system. What isn’t outlined is if the Canadian businesses are included in this mapping system. As well how would a business go about adding their information to this map is not yet indicated on either side of the border. They’ve improved their voice recognition system,…
