Robots Are Now The Workforce

In a recent article written by Brian Heater, he goes into detail about the recent improvements and employment of robots in factories around the country.

Although this is only the beginning, the engineers at Esko Bionics have developed usable exoskeletons that are more than capable of performing repetitive and useful tasks in many areas (such as on the battlefield and in factories).

Although the technology is not quite mainstream yet, it is continually improving and is too becoming less expensive as the materials become more readily available; this, in practice, means that our future will most likely be filled with robots taking over our laborious and dangerous jobs, leaving many unemployed.

However, on the other side, this means that there is a great market and need for more engineers and robotic enthusiasts in order to ensure that our future is safe and reliable.

It will be very interesting to see how these companies integrate robots and how they help shape our future.

Should You Change Your Twitter Password?

On Friday, Twitter released a statement “[revealing] that it made a monumental security blunder by exposing the passwords of users in plain text.” It is not yet clear how many users were affected or how the error occurred but nonetheless, changing your password won’t hurt.

In addition to creating a new password, it is also a good idea to enable the two-factor identification feature. Once enabled, Twitter will send a verification code whenever a new device is attempting to access your account. Two-factor identification also allows you to use a third-party app to generate a password for you.

Lastly, it is a good idea to get a backup-code for your Twitter account in the event you lose your device. All of these features can be accessed by clicking on your profile image and then settings and privacy—which will lead you to a screen where changing your password and security features is a breeze.
