Book Review: Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other

 

Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other: Sherry Turkle: 9780465031467: Amazon.com: Books. This book delights as well as confuses. I liked the stories, but I didn’t like how the evidence doesn’t prove her point. While it is obvious she is intelligent and capable, it felt callous the way that she used people in her studies with the robots. One is left with the impression that she did more  harm than good to her subjects. More importantly, this doesn’t offer any solutions. This book is a starting point, but like most academics prefers to ask questions than try to answer them.

Book Review: The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business

 

The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business: Eric Schmidt, Jared Cohen: 9780307957139: Amazon.com: Books. Avoid. I don’t know where to start with this. Ok here are a few words: tedious, obvious, wordy, simplistic, insulting, arrogant, advertisement. If you don’t mind those, please read this.

Mavericks Keychain keeps asking to unlock “Local Items” after install

Mavericks Keychain keeps asking to…: Apple Support Communities. This problem happens with many people. Here is a solution. I like avoiding Keychain where possible. Makes my life much better. Thanks Npalamidis.

Mavericks Keychain keeps asking to...: Apple Support Communities

I solved this issue by doing the following steps:

1.- Opening KeyChain app

2.- Locking the Keychain by clicking the lock on the top left corner.

3. -Unlocking the Keychain, as soon as I typed my Admin Passoword it asked me to “Reset my iCloud KeyChain” I clicked yes because I didn’t have setup my icloud keychain yet.

4.- Restart computer.

After performing this steps the computer restarted flawlessly and without asking for the “Local Items” password.
