Good morning, everybody. I was on with Mr. Jim Polito this morning.  I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve started kind of a soft launch. So this is kind of hush-hush. I have been wanting to try this for a while, start doing some live streaming over on Facebook, because a lot of people who are the de-facto IT people for businesses use this platform. You know, who you are — you’re interested in computers and you’re kind of the operations person. Now you find yourself elected to be the computer person.  That leads into what I’ve been doing here this week, and I’m going to keep doing it, without really promoting it. In fact, I haven’t really told anyone but people have been finding out which I love, okay as I’m helping and I love the feedback I’m getting. I have been doing Facebook Lives now. I kind of did it this morning with Jim Polito and I had a couple of little issues when I got started figuring out FB specific tech. But hey, if you check me out on Facebook, you will find my Interview with Mr. Polito that I did live on Facebook as well. Also, I had a daily, this week of little training videos, I’m doing lives talking about VPNs. We’re talking about all kinds of aspects of VPN this week and next week’s mobile devices and then we’re going to get into Wi-Fi and then security compliance. We’re going to be doing this and so you will eventually I’m guessing next week, or maybe in Saturday’s email, I’m going to be announcing but if you want to be in a little bit early, go to my Facebook account. It’s Craig radio, actually is what my facebook account is. And you can see some of these lives right there.  Well, it is that time so, here we go with Mr. Polito.

Good morning, everybody. I was on with Mr. Jim Polito this morning.  I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve started kind of a soft launch. So this is kind of hush-hush. I have been wanting to try this for a while, start doing some live streaming over on Facebook, because a lot of people who are the de-facto IT people for businesses use this platform. You know, who you are — you’re interested in computers and you’re kind of the operations person. Now you find yourself elected to be the computer person.  That leads into what I’ve been doing here this week, and I’m going to keep doing it, without really promoting it. In fact, I haven’t really told anyone but people have been finding out which I love, okay as I’m helping and I love the feedback I’m getting. I have been doing Facebook Lives now. I kind of did it this morning with Jim Polito and I had a couple of little issues when I got started figuring out FB specific tech. But hey, if you check me out on Facebook, you will find my Interview with Mr. Polito that I did live on Facebook as well. Also, I had a daily, this week of little training videos, I’m doing lives talking about VPNs. We’re talking about all kinds of aspects of VPN this week and next week’s mobile devices and then we’re going to get into Wi-Fi and then security compliance. We’re going to be doing this and so you will eventually I’m guessing next week, or maybe in Saturday’s email, I’m going to be announcing but if you want to be in a little bit early, go to my Facebook account. It’s Craig radio, actually is what my facebook account is. And you can see some of these lives right there.  Well, it is that time so, here we go with Mr. Polito.

Jim Polito 
The man the myth, the legend, our tech talks. Guru and good friend Craig Peterson. Good morning, sir.

Craig
Good morning. How are you doing, Jim?

Jim 
I’m good. How are you, Craig?

Craig
Doing well, but enjoying the show per usual this morning. No wonder you the fastest growing show in the world. Also the fastest growing host when you get right down to it.

Jim

Yeah, I’m the fastest growing host. We should put that out there as it is an interesting promotion. Well, thank you. I appreciate that. But you are part of the reason why we are one of the fastest growing shows and it’s what you bring to the table. And I found two things today. And I hope we can get to both of them in your material. And we’ll tell folks at the end of the segment how they can get on your mailing list. So you can have what I get every week from Craig. Craig, this is this is interesting, right when I saw that headline I got it You should lie in your password recovery questions like when they say, what was the name of your first pet? What’s your mother’s maiden name? And what street where you are is your family living on when you were born? Right? Those are the most common. And and you’re saying lie on those questions.

Craig
Yeah, this is a little different than you’re used to with what your mom told you to do when you are because , n fact, you should lie to your bank. You should lie.

Jim
I do frequently. As a matter of fact. I say that now because I might get arrested for that.

Craig
You’re right. It was a different type of line, right? Yeah. In this case, what we’re trying to do is avoid what the FBI is warned more than just this last month is the number one problem we have when it comes to hackers. And that is the whole problem of hackers getting our personal information and then using that to hack us think back a little bit to the days of the Nigerian prince scam, for instance. And, and I help and developed a system to stop these scams all those years ago. But that’s where you got an email from the prince and he needed to get your help because he’s trying to get his money out of Nigeria, and you needed a US bank account to move it through. So would it be all right if you send to the money and you could keep a little bit of it as kind of a commission that you could then you could then use I didn’t end this spelling was terrible. The grammar was terrible. And, you know, they were doing it on purpose to get people who were, frankly a little naive, right. And unfortunately, they caught a lot of people Today they do real social engineering. So they want to know your name, your birthdate, where you’re from all these things. And if they break into a website, and that website is asked you those questions, and they’ll have it. So I want you to go back to when the book going room came out. There’s a little bit of a subtle reference. I do remember actually. And then there was a kind of a comedy democrat book called going ruse about Sarah Palin. Remember, there was a 20 year old college student that broke into Sarah Palin’s Yahoo account. By the way, Yahoo is paying people right now. And you had if you had a Yahoo account, it was compromised, basically 2 billion accounts compromised. And Yahoo is paying their penalties right now in the form of checks. But anyways, courage was broken into specifically by this 20 year old, because he could go online and find out what your zip code was or birthday, the date of her wedding, the name of her kids or husbands or dogs and all of that sort of stuff. And he got into it. And he took all of her emails, and he shared them with the media. And there was a whole big thing about Sarah Palin because of that. That’s social engineering to just an amateur degree. Today, they want you to put in all this information on the website to be able to recover your password. So here’s my advice to you. Don’t give them the real information. I use a password manager. You’ve known that for a long time. Yes. And you can get my special report on passwords. If you go to Craig peterson.com slash passwords. It’s free. It’s easy, okay, and it’s 10 pages long telling you what to do how to do it. So I use a password manager and I put in my password manager in my secure notes and I just told Bank of America that I was born in ultra design. Well, first name of a city, right? American. Yeah. And I told Bank of America again, this is for the recovery questions right? That my the name of my first teacher was CEO Soho, right. And I’m never going to remember this because I told Bank of America that but I told TD Bank something entirely different. Yes. And I do that for every website. So that now if someone breaks in, and they’re trying to get to me, because they know I’m a business owner, they know I have employees. So they want to try and transfer money out of my account like they’ve done for some of my newer clients that I picked up because of the bad guy who’s got their bank accounts or operating accounts. There are many good because Bank of America thinks that, you know, I was born over here and in fact I was born over there. According to This this other website.

Jim

So good advice there right here bank? Well, at least on the password recovery questions, it makes sense because people could also get that information. All right. Let’s go on to this one. That that obscene amount of money that I spend on a smartphone, I won’t be doing it in the future. Well, wait a minute, I’ll probably be still be spending an obscene amount of money. But I won’t be using a phone because AI is going to be all around me. What’s this?

Craig
Yeah, this is interesting and scary and wonderful all at the same time. A guy that I follow Gary vein or truck, yo, smart guy. He’s claiming now that artificial intelligence is going to get to the point and is going to be so ubiquitous, it’s going to be everywhere. That everything we do is going to change. Take a look right now. We’ve got these Amazon Alexa is there all over the place I have a my use of the Internet. That’s how I listened to your radio show. I just tell Alexa the tune the end. And off I go with my, my Jim Pluto show. So what and, and Amazon has a new Echo, which is one of these electric shock devices for your car, little teeny tiny thing. And it clips right on to the event. And it will hook up to your phone so that it gets data and it hooks up to the Bluetooth to your, your stereo so that it can play and then you just talk to a Jew to ask it to send a message, make a phone call, play certain music, whatever you would normally have your Alexa do very, very cool. And that’s today. So another five or 10 years from now. We’re going to have you know Google Play in the car. We’ve already got some fairly advanced technology Apple has car, play, etc. Yeah, the cars and upcoming with Wi Fi built in the coming with microphones and speakers, but they’re these devices, Gary saying are going to be everywhere and AI is getting so good at understanding what we say and interpreting it. You know, it’s still not okay. But it’s a lot better than it was that in 10 years from now, these devices are going to be everywhere. We already know that Levi’s is building smart, smart jackets, their trucker jacket, it has sensors

Jim
crazy

Craig
in it. That soon going to be everywhere gym and we’re going to be because of that able to just talk to get answers go further. And if Elon Musk is successful, he has a business and just came out of stealth mode. And that business is designing a direct neural interface into your brain.

Jim
No, really

Craig 
Yeah. And the glasses think of google glasses that weren’t such a big hit people today are would be a little more accepting from those. But it’s going to be everywhere. We’re going to use it for everything in our lives just going to get simpler and more complex. Remember, the younger generations don’t care that everybody has all their information, and they will trade their email addresses for as little as a cup of coffee, according to a test. I know.

Jim
I know. They will, which is incredible to me.

Craig
Yeah. This is incredible. I don’t know how far we’re going to let this go. But you know, let’s get right down to it. Even marketers, right? If I’m buying a car, not only do I not mind seeing car commercials that are aimed at me, they know I want a new F150 pickup truck. And so I’ve got now 10 dealers bidding against each other trying to sell me an F150 I’d rather have that. Then Then have, you know all these other commercials for all of this other stuff that I don’t care about? In some ways, having the marketing guys kind of know who I am, what I want, is really to my advantage, and yet at the same time, I don’t want you’ve got it, you’ve got to look at it. You’ve got to drop everything.

Jim

The thinking is I need this device in my hand to be able to connect everything to I’m going to be connected to everything.

Craig
Yeah, it is entirely different. So you’re not going to be carrying that little device around. You might have a pair of sunglasses, it might be in your hat, it might be in the color of your shirt that you’re wearing is just a little clip, and it’s going to change absolutely everything. Now I want people to also understand something that is not being talked about the time into this. And that is we’ve got a couple of candidates on the trail now like our beloved senator, and they’re out saying, Hey, listen, if a company replaces you with automation, we want that company to give you stock in the company in lieu of a job, which I can see where she’s going with this. But what we’re actually finding is that the jobs that are being replaced, obviously, they’re the simpler jobs typically, those people and the new jobs are being created, are higher paying. And we know right now with the economy the way it is and what President Trump is done, but blue collar workers, the lower end workers, if you will, have been making more money. Some of these jobs have paid 15 bucks an hour before President Trump was elected are now paying as much as 25 an hour. But we’re also seeing that the new jobs are being created, even though they might not require A whole huge level of skill are actually higher pain. Yeah, so this is gonna be an interesting trend to watch and hopefully we don’t get caught up in that negatively.

Jim
This is great stuff, folks, you know, every week every Tuesday at this time, we’re joined by Craig Peterson, but you can stay in touch with Craig, he doesn’t want to sell you anything. He just wants to provide you with information. So what you do is you text my name, Jim J-I-M to this number

Craig
8553855553 just texted Jim, to me at 855-385-5553

Jim
Standard data and text rates apply. Craig will not try to sell you anything. You won’t hack you, but you’ll get the information I get. And it’s interesting stuff and you the best to know this stuff. And to be ready for it. So Craig, thank you very much. We’ll talk with you next week, buddy.

Craig
Take care, Jim. Bye-bye.

Craig 
All right, everybody. Take care. I’ll be back tomorrow and of course this weekend, and I’m going to try and do Facebook Lives for the radio show.  I have been taping the radio show beforehand. So you may see them. I don’t know how best to do this. Do I do the facebook live while I’m recording it because sometimes I go in and do some edits. Do I not bother with Facebook Lives? Do I use a pre-recorded thing to do it? To air, Facebook Lives on Saturday? I don’t know if you guys have any suggestions, but if you do – drop me a line it is just me M-E at Craig Peterson dot com. I’d love to hear from you. We’ll figure this out. We will take care, Bye-bye.
