      Tip of the Week: Avoid Buyer’s Remorse By Renting a Gadget Before Buying It

      At this point, these gadget rental services primarily deal with popular consumer electronics, like smartphones, cameras, wearables, drones, headphones, and more. Although, you may be able to browse these rental services and find gadgets that are useful for your company. If not for business purposes, then surely you’ll come across an item that you’ve always wanted but have been hesitant to fully commit to.

      These try-before-you-buy services are actually pretty straightforward. In most cases, you’ll browse a website and select the item that you would like to rent. You’ll then pay a small fee that covers you possessing the product for a predetermined period of time. Then, the item is mailed to you and your rental period starts as soon as it arrives. During this time, you get to use the product and, when you grow tired of it, you simply send it back and only pay for the time that you used it.

      If, however, you fall in love with the product and wish to keep it, you simply pay for it and some portion of the rental fee will be deducted from the final price. Depending on which rental company you go with, you may be sent a completely new product if you decide to make a purchase.

      The advantage here is that you’ll essentially be able to get your hands on a hot new gadget for just a portion of what it would cost to buy it. This can come in handy if you only need the gadget to complete a project, or perhaps use it for an event. Also, it’s the nature of some gadgets to only be fun for the first few weeks before losing their luster. Therefore, renting a drone for a week and then sending it back may be a much more economical way of “getting your drone fix” than having to pay outright for one, using it for a week, and then having it collect dust in your garage.

      Two popular websites to check out if you’re wanting to rent cool technology are Lumoid and Grover.

      Lumoid specializes in camera gear and wearables, but they’ve also got a nice selection of drones, high-end headphones, and more. PCMag offers this review. “You can try several devices at once for a reasonable cost, or simply rent items, such as the new Apple Watch or a drone quadcopter, on a short-term basis... Prices vary, shipping took more than two weeks in my trial, and the loan times can be a little tight, but Lumoid's convenience makes it a worthwhile service.”

      Grover is new to the US and offers more gadgets than Lumoid, like smartphones, virtual reality devices, laptops, projectors, video game consoles, and more. In an interview with PCMag, Grover CEO Michael Cassau is quick to explain what sets his company apart. "Grover is not about trying before buying but about replacing buying altogether because it's unnecessary and largely debt financed. Consumers are granted the freedom from purchasing one gadget at a large upfront cost and given the ability to experience multiple gadgets at a reasonable price point. How long a consumer wants to keep a product is up to them."

      Similarly, when it comes to business technology like servers and workstations, there are several IT hardware companies that offer leasing options so that you can get the technology your company needs, at a cost you can afford. If this is a technology option that appeals to you, then reach out to Symmetric Engineering Group at (813) 749-0895 and we’ll point you in the right direction.

      Are there any cool gadgets that you’ve been dreaming about but you’re on the fence when it comes to making a purchase? Let us know in the comments what tech you’ve got your eye on and if you think renting is the way to go.

      This NSA Employee Made a Mistake. How Hackers Exploited it is Worrisome

      An investigation performed by the FBI points to the source of the hack coming from an individual associated with the NSA, like an employee or a contractor. However, unlike the infamous NSA-employee-turned-fugitive case of Edward Snowden, it looks like this most recent data breach wasn’t an attempt at whistleblowing. Instead, it’s more likely that the breach resulted from the sloppy handling of sensitive files.

      Whether the mishandling of the NSA files was an intentional act or not has yet to be determined. Although, what we do know is how they were mishandled. Apparently, the responsible party left the tools on a remote computer during an operation--three years ago! If the tools were removed from the remote PC like they were supposed to be, this whole crisis could have been avoided. To say that this is unfortunate is an understatement, seeing as the stolen tools allow users to exploit systems from Fortinet Inc. and Cisco Systems.

      Since the news of the hack became public knowledge, patches for these systems have been released, thus minimizing the damage that can be enacted by hackers using the stolen tools. Although, as is the nature of security patches, organizations that put off installing them will continue to be at risk until they do so, giving hackers ample motivation to seek out and exploit these negligent companies.

      Currently, the FBI is looking into the possibility that the employee intentionally left these tools exposed so the Shadow Brokers could obtain them. However, the information thus far points to the employee making an honest mistake, seeing as the worker reported their mistake shortly after making it. Considering then how these events played out, the NSA actually comes out looking bad since they didn’t report the threat to the affected software manufacturers after learning about it; another misstep that could have resolved the problem much sooner.

      The takeaway here for business owners is how easy it is for an innocent mistake by you or one of your employees to put your company’s sensitive information at serious risk. Often times, much attention and resources are given to protecting an organization from external threats, like hackers of the Shadow Broker nature, while too little attention is given to training staff on how to properly handle data. When it comes to having an airtight cybersecurity plan, your company must protect itself from every threat, and from every angle.

      To make sure your network is fully protected, reach out to Symmetric Engineering Group at (813) 749-0895.

      Is it Time to Rethink the 8-Hour Workday?

      To understand this shift, let’s look to the origin of the eight-hour workday. The Industrial Revolution gave birth to a shorter, more productive workday. It all started with a Welsh activist named Robert Owen, who in 1817 argued for “Eight hours labor, eight hours recreation, eight hours rest.” It seemed like a radical idea at the time. Workdays often exceeded 12 hours, and lasted for as long as 16 hours or longer. However, the Ford Motor Company in the early 20th century revolutionized the workplace with the implementation of the eight-hour workday, while also doubling wages.

      As you might imagine, the increased productivity that this resulted in was immense, and significantly improved both work ethic and working conditions. Just think about how today’s workplace can learn from this development. A study, which analyzed 2,000 full-time office workers, indicates that your employees might only be productive for as few as three hours a day. This might be shocking to hear, but when you consider how many distractions are in the office, you shouldn't be surprised. Here are some of the distractions that the study found were most prominent:

      • Reading news websites: 1 hour 5 min
      • Checking social media: 44 min
      • Discussing non-work-related things with coworkers: 40 min
      • Searching for new jobs: 26 min
      • Taking smoke breaks: 23 min
      • Making calls to partners/friends: 18 min
      • Making hot drinks: 17 min
      • Texting or instant messaging: 14 min
      • Eating snacks: 8 min
      • Making food in office: 7 min

      Of course, some of these distractions could easily be removed through use of a content filtering system on your network. This can block access to time-wasting or inappropriate websites like Facebook, Twitter, BuzzFeed, those that host pornography, and many others, with the primary goal of retaining productivity and ensuring that your employees don’t visit potentially dangerous websites.

      Would the world benefit from cutting the workday once again to achieve a higher level of productivity and worker satisfaction? Who knows; but the least you can do is implement a content filtering solution to keep your team focused. To learn more, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.
