Bad Things Come in Small Packages; Good Things Come in No Packaging at All We at Tech Essentials had been hoping to have at least a one-week respite from any talk of COVID, and we were sooo close this week...until I saw an article about a British mathematician who calculated that, based on there being two quintillion virus particles with an average diameter of 100 billionth of a meter, all the COVID in the world could easily fit into one (empty) can of soda. That’s right. T [...]

Email Encryption with Future Proof Technology

February 22, 2021 / in Blog, Tech Essentials / by Zafar Khan, RPost CEO

Let’s Ring in a New Era of Privacy? The German philosopher, Hegel, wrote (and I’m paraphrasing here) that history is merely a never-ending series of reactions to reactions. Once a thing is done, there is an inevitable reaction to it and then a reaction to that and so on. Technology works the same way in that innovations are often countered and re-countered by subsequent innovations. The technology that allowed for connectivity via social media spawned an outcry about [...]

How to Say ‘Leave Me Alone’ without an ‘Opposite Shock’ A year ago, there was a sudden “shock” to the world that caused mass disruption in people’s normal routines, forcing an uncomfortable behavioral change for most. This pandemic-induced shift to an isolated work-from-home (WFH) routine should become a shibboleth once vaccines flow freely. But perhaps it wont. Over the course of the last year, we’ve all acclimated to our new routines, comfy chairs, lounging in between [...]

Big Game, Little Tech Innovation on Sunday This Sunday’s Superbowl will be the latest US sports championship to be presented during the COVID era. Kudos to the NFL for pulling of its season and post-season largely on schedule and without too many hiccups—though there were plenty. The Superbowl has become such a spectacle over its 55-year life, that it long ago transcended the actual sport for which it is declaring a champion. People will watch it for the ads, the celebrity-studded [...]

Now Let’s Really Start The 2020s 2021 may now be well underway. The government is starting to drop more money from helicopters, potentially trillions more upon the trillions already. I am not sure what this means for the Bitcoin crowd (I won’t bore you with my speculation on this unless you ask…). But, we at RPost and Tech Essentials are a hopeful bunch, and as I wrote in an  [...]

The Government is Dropping Money Out of Helicopters. FOMO. The Government is Dropping Money from Helicopters. And every American business is trying to catch some of it, any of it, and fast. Surely there won’t be enough to support payroll for every small business in America for 2-3 months. What then? Two trillion dollars sounds like a lot — but much of it is to support big brands and big business. Fear of missing out (FOMO) strikes again. What if these governmen [...]

Today’s New Triple Play (without baseball) Last week everything was as fancy as an iPhone 11. Being on a business conference call with the sounds of a baby happily chirping in the background was distracting. Those good old days (back in February) when anything less than elegance or perfection was disturbing. With today’s California lock down order of all citizens, the fifth largest economy in the world has nearly ground to a halt. Things will change. W [...]
