So the news came out the other day that Google has released another product into the market known as Android. This one, I must say, has some interesting potential. It is open source software that will run on cell phones. What is so exciting is that up until this point the software running on cell phones was proprietary and closed. Therefore, you had no truly full powered web browser and each site had to be in some way customized to run on the different OS platforms – like Palm OS and other platforms specific to the actual handset – now we have a software choice that will work on multiple handsets. This new development means that all of a sudden all types of applications can be created to run on cell phones, opening up the market to a whole array of new options.
I finally got to sit down today and peruse my Sunday New York Times Magazine and I discovered an article that is oh so relevant to the lives of all the employees of Abraham Harrison LLC. The article is titled “Home-Office Politics” and talks to how the new workers, those of us that work from home deserve a New Deal!!
There are certainly some policies that penalize those of us that work from home – such as having to contribute the full 15% to Social Security, or the lack of group health insurance policies or other such things. However, in my opinion I can live with these type of constraints when I have the freedom and flexibility to work at hours that are best for me and my family.
