Last week Barbara and I attended the annual Google I/O Developer’s conference in Mountain View. We’ve attended every year since the first one back in 2008 and were glad to continue the streak.
If you’ve been thinking about switching to HTTPS as part of the HTTPS Everywhere initiative from Google and Mozilla, you should make sure you know what you are doing. Check out my post on Justia’s blog to learn what you need to pay attention to before you go HTTPS.
I’m really excited about my latest post on Justia’s blog because it is about a new Justia service that I was instrumental in bringing about. Justia has developed a technique to create AMP versions of all of our clients’ websites and blogs. I’ve been pretty excited about the Accelerated Mobile Pages project for a while now as it allows for websites that load instantly the moment you tap the link in search results. Check out more about AMP and about Justia’s new offering in my blog post on the Justia blog.

I did a wrap up of how the Google Assistant compares with its competitors at Apple, Microsoft and Amazon for Justia’s Legal Marketing & Technology Blog. My brief overview discusses what each of the Digital Personal Assistants brought to the table, and how Google has taken what they see as the best aspect of each and added their own flair.
As I sit here today checking the time on my Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch, I’m amused by a concept I’m calling “The Time Keeping Cycle.” When I was in high school college I wore watches all of the time (usually a Casio calculator watch, yes I was “that guy”), and pretty much everyone I knew wore wrist watches at the time as well. They were simple and useful.
