Put a stop to harassing calls and texts

A friend of mine just got out of a rough relationship. Unfortunately it didn’t go well as her ex was calling and texting her nonstop to both try and win her back and insult her (I did say it was a rough relationship).

Leveraging Moments of Truth


eGain is touting a report from Forrester Consulting and my friend Ian Jacobs purporting to show that omnichannel customer service is stagnant or worse when it comes to delivering service that customers need and want. Ian does good work and I am in agreement with him on this, but I have trouble with some conclusions, specifically the implication that the problem can be solved with more software. Now, I am a proud software bigot, but I am also fond of the saying, “If you take your car to Midas, you’re going to get a muffler.”

Google scans your Gmail inbox for child porn to help catch criminals, but don’t worry about loss of privacy (yet)

Gmail censored
Last week, a man in Texas was arrested by the police for sending child porn to a friend email. This isn’t something we’d usually report on, except in this case the man was arrested due to a direct tip-off from Google, which caught the child porn moving across its Gmail servers and dutifully alerted the police. This raises a rather thorny question: How did Google scan the man’s inbox for child porn? And more importantly, does this mean Google is scanning everyone’s inbox for child porn and other illegal materials?
