Hold your breath…even Apple experiences security issues. We know it may come as a surprise to some who claim Apple products are more secure than others, but the truth is, even your favorite brands, like Apple, are prone to vulnerabilities.
In the latest security issue with Apple, researchers discovered their software was not interacting as it should with Apple’s code-signing API. This vulnerability could allow malicious files to bypass the code-signing process, which would make it look like the code is Apple approved.
Technology and robotics just keeps getting better. A new firefighting robot is in the works. Dragon Firefighter, a robotic snake, can crawl into windows of burning buildings.
Erik and Amy discuss how it is designed to act like a water hose with powerful jets to get into areas of burning buildings that firefighters cannot get to.
We’ve all seen the businesses who have celebrity endorsements to promote their brand and products. For the most part, it works. People who love Justin Timberlake will most likely buy drinks by Bai because of he is featured in their commercials.
Businesses who use the celebrity endorsements are counting on a spike in product sales because of the product’s relationship with the celebrity. But reports are seeing a decline in celebrity influencer marketing and resorting to a more personal marketing tactic: their employees and their customers.
Cherokee Nation Entertainment (CNE) realized they were spending an incredible amount of time reviewing security footage. So much so, that they wanted to find a way to make the process more efficient, so their security team could focus on other tasks.
CNE now uses an on-premise video analytics solution to identify events of interest more quickly. This is just one example of how businesses can utilize technology and video to improve efficiencies.
