Robots that pour your beer…and when it’s worth getting help with Microsoft Exchange

By Evan Morris - Senior Engineer, HP Enterprise Group


Researchers at Cornell University’s Personal Robotics Lab have programmed a robot that can predict what you’re about to do by using a video database, allowing the robot to assist with basic tasks like opening the refrigerator and yes, even pouring you a beer.  Once the robot has the data, it determines what to do based on what it anticipates the person it is monitoring will do next. 


I must reluctantly say there may be more important things I need help with than a beer fetching robot.  WIth advanced technology, there are areas where expert assistance is not only helpful but necessary.  Knowing when it’s worth investing the time and resources to do something yourself versus seeking help from an outside party can often be the difference between success and failure. 


How messaging with Microsoft Exchange relates to the latest NFL Strategy

By Evan Morris - Senior Engineer, HP Enterprise Group


If you’re a fan of NFL Football in the U.S., then you’re probably familiar with the latest strategy that NFL coaches are implementing with increasing frequency – different versions of what’s referred to as the Wildcat formation which rely on freakishly athletic, very fast, large quarterbacks who are as likely to run with the ball themselves as to handing if off or throwing it.   


It’s a nightmare for defenses to try and stop, yet many sportswriters believe it’s just another fad that will pass (no pun intended) once all those running quarterbacks get their bell rung (or worse) by some 270lb Linebacker.  


So what does this have to do with messaging?
