  • On a recent vacation, I made the time to dig into a book by Karen Kingston entitled, “Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui.” I selected this book, after having witnessed a neighbor’s house almost destroyed by a gas pipe that had been struck. Thankfully, the family members were all safe. The house of course, could be rebuilt. I still felt sadness, though, for the possible loss of photos, letters, documents, children’s drawings on the refrigerator and other priceless and irreplaceable mementos that could have been lost.

    Artificial intelligence, commonly referred to as AI, has great potential to increase efficiency, accuracy, and cost savings within the legal industry. But the ability to make decisions autonomously without any human involvement has caused concern in some legal circles as to the ethical implications. Specifically, a literal artificial decision does not apply the same critical thinking, intuition, and professional judgement traditionally practiced by a seasoned lawyer.   (more…)

    The evolution of document management is astounding.  When I was growing up, I handwrote my homework until I had access to a typewriter at my mother’s real estate office. What a treat to type  my reports for school!  They looked so professional. What could beat that?! Enter home computers. My father’s and grandparents’ computers were the holy grail of my homework experience. I no longer had to use white-out to correct my mistakes or start over entirely. Plus, I could save  my work inside  of a computer?! Amazing! (more…)

    As we quickly transition into a new year, I think back on 2017 and the rash of cyber security stories that made national and international news. Ransomware like WannaCry and NotPetya, the Equifax breach, SMBv1 and SSL vulnerabilities, etc. Even a global phishing scam used a fake Konica Minolta C224e scan to email message as bait.

    Most noteworthy in the printer industry were the major campaigns launched by various MFP and print providers. As it turned out, one of the most prolific printer security campaigns actually backfired when it was discovered that the very printer vulnerabilities described in the campaign were actually discovered on their own portfolio of enterprise printers. You couldn’t make it up if you tried. (more…)

    KMBS_LogoImagine a technology of bygone days that’s still a vital communications tool today, relied upon by businesses of all shapes, sizes, industries and regions worldwide, and still needed in today’s digital transformation. No, it’s not the automobile or the lightbulb. It’s fax communications. Consider this: The latest 2017 IDC Fax Trends survey confirms the vitality of fax and its continuing growth and relevancy today.  In the survey, 75 percent of total respondents expect fax usage to grow or remain the same in the next two years while in North America it’s expected to be an even higher 88 percent!

    legal picMy first car was a gray Pontiac Sunbird and, being that I was intrigued by manual transmissions, I had to have this feature even though I only knew how to drive an automatic.  You may ask, “Why did you buy a new car that you couldn’t even drive?” Well, my rationale was that if the car was purchased, I would have to force myself to learn and face my fear.  So, I bought the car and a good friend drove it home for me and, for about a month, I stared out the window trying to get up the nerve to learn how to drive it. One day, after growing tired of catching the bus, I found the nerve to learn and, of course, it wasn’t that bad. I drove that car for 13 years. Although it wasn’t new technology, it was new to me and it was a giant beast I had to conquer. (more…)
