    The latest episode of our technology channel podcast features Encore Technology Group’s President and Chief Strategy/Technology Officer, Michael Knight. What are we chatting about this month? First, Facebook’s latest in a string of security gaffes dealing with the sale of consumer data (this one may make you ditch the platform for good!). Next we touch on fraudulent tactics and dirty dealings on Amazon Marketplace. We read the Verge’s recent exposé of the topic and it really made us question our holiday shopping lists and the products we had delivered in the last few weeks.

    ScanSource was honored to be part of a wonderful project at the USS Wisconsin Museum in Norfolk, Virginia. Our partners IPConfigure and Axis Communications offered a great deal of support, providing the equipment and manpower to set up cameras and run cables as part of the Museum’s Ship Experience Access Room (SEAR). The SEAR provides a wheelchair accessible room full of large monitors for veterans and their families to get an in-depth look at several areas on board the Battleship USS Wisconsin, many of which are very hard to gain access to. Using pan-tilt-zoom security cameras on the ship and joysticks back in the SEAR, veterans can control the cameras to explore the spaces.

What do I mean by “Cisco Collaboration” in regards to this new role? I’m glad you asked...

    If you told me 20 years ago humanity would be looking through the doorway to a digitally transformed world, I might have laughed to myself and said not a chance. Maybe in a hundred years, but never in a few short decades, would we be seeing autonomous cars, virtual reality, humanoid robots, and handheld computers and devices interconnected and communicating with each other all over the world. Ironically, though, nothing could be farther from the truth.
