Usernames to Block

Remember when you were a kid, and you needed a password to get into the tree fort? Not a bad security step. If you recognized the person who wanted to get in to your fort and they knew the password, that person was welcomed in. If they didn’t have the password – and they weren’t…Read More→

Roll with the Changes

In the same way that it wasn’t surprising to see Toys ‘R Us go out of business, it’s also not surprising to see that Blockbuster is down to one remaining location.

Toys R’ Us Going Under Is Not a Surprise

Not long ago, someone asked me if I was surprised that Toys R’ Us was going out of business. I couldn’t help but laugh. Oftentimes in life we can learn so much from other people’s mistakes. The same is true in business and Toys R’ Us is a perfect example. I’m not saying to wear…Read More→
