Microsoft, TikTok, and My Idea for a Secure Login

Posted by Joe Moline on Aug 10, 2020 1:38:58 PM

Microsoft perhaps buying TikTok is all over the news currently.  I am by no means willing to weigh in on how politics has surrounded this potential transaction and I am probably not the one in our organization to discuss the security implications of having TikTok on your phone.

Coaching to Your Advantages

Posted by Joe Moline on Feb 3, 2020 1:53:29 PM

As a kid there was nothing more I loved than playing sports and competing.  Now, as an adult and father of two, there is not much more I enjoy in my life than coaching.  Initially, I was thrilled introducing my kids to the sports that brought me so much joy child and about teaching the basic skills of each sport.  As my son has grown older and the skills and competition become more advanced new elements to coaching youth sports start to emerge.

Setting your IT Budget to Help your Clients, Employees and your Bottom Line

Posted by Joe Moline on Nov 13, 2019 5:22:21 PM

As companies prepare their budgets for 2020, financial leaders across the world are often looking at IT as one of their biggest annual costs. Additionally, each year seems to bring on steep increases depending on the type of organization and how they invest in technology. The expense is not necessarily predictable either- the more an organization has workloads in the cloud, the more likely the final expense becomes a moving target.

Joe's Link: Missing out on Technology revolution could seriously change your life

Posted by Joe Moline on Nov 3, 2017 8:33:44 AM

I admit I am not someone who was not always on the cutting edge of technology.  It’s not that I don’t love technology and appreciate the many improvements it has made to my quality of life.  It’s just that I am not an early adapter type. I need to fully understand how and why each technology product is going to improve my life before I invest any of my own time or money.

Joe's Links: Getting to know you're scammer and brews and bytes

Posted by Joe Moline on Oct 13, 2017 7:38:47 AM

I remember growing up and the old rotary phone ringing during dinner time and we’d frustratingly find out that it was telemarketers.  This was before caller ID or the ability to just silence the ringers.  We as kids were advised to try and determine if it was someone our parents actually knew, and then if not, to lie and say they weren’t home.  Wait, then the kidnappers would think we were home alone. We had to tell a better lie... For years telemarketers thought my parents took really long nightly showers.

Joe's Links: Fantasy Football in the office and legal sports gambling

Posted by Joe Moline on Sep 8, 2017 9:15:44 AM

And just like that summer is over, kids are back in school and football takes over our living rooms for the next four months. And for many offices fantasy football takes over the water cooler conversation.  We have an office fantasy football league which is good for team building or smack talking, depending on the day.  My one piece of advice for anyone out there who runs a fantasy football team: Nobody wants to hear how your bench player put up 30 points or an overturned call cost you the big “game.”

Posted by Joe Moline on Sep 1, 2017 8:19:32 AM

The internet is cram packed full of people complaining about their customer experiences, but I wanted to take a moment to share a story about an excellent customer service experience I encounter every time I visit.  This past week I got my oil changed and new tires put on my vehicle at my favorite place Youngtedt’s in Maple Grove.

Easily one of my favorite days of work each year is our annual customer appreciation event, which we hold at Rush Creek Golf Club.  For 11 years now we have used this as an opportunity to thank our loyal customers.  A customer appreciation golf event allows us to spend more than the usual time with our clients while enjoying fun day at an outstanding venue like Rush Creek.  We receive fantastic feedback from our clients and they look forward to the event each year.

Floyd Mayweather, Peanut Allergy and Solar Eclipse

Posted by Joe Moline on Aug 18, 2017 8:19:35 AM

We are about to see something that we have not and will not see again in our lifetime.  Well, maybe you can say that about a lot of things that are going on lately in the news, but I am referring to the solar eclipse.  Here is an article on what you need to know.  Most interestingly is that “the tiny of town of Carbondale, Illinois, will be treated to the longest eclipse duration - about two minutes and 41 seconds of total darkness.”

Joe's Breakfast Links Pt. 25

Posted by Joe Moline on Aug 4, 2017 10:44:52 AM

I am a coach for my son's hockey team and at practice this week he skated up to me and said a player from a different team which we share the ice with threw snow in his face. He wanted either advice on how to deal with it or he wanted me to deal with it. I really didn't do either. I just asked him how he dealt with it.
