Burlington Lawyer | Wearable Tech is Useless

Wearable Tech is Useless

If you grew up in the eighties you were probably super excited to hear about the introduction of wearable tech a few years back. However, by and large all of these products have been a big disappointment. In fact, they are an embarrassment. With the exception of virtual reality gaming devices.

Smart Watches

The smartwatch is an overpriced useless gadget with the off chance of some of them actually looking cool. Furthermore, there is nothing your phone can’t do better. Texting and or sending and receiving emails on a smartwatch is not only ridiculous but almost impossible. Similarly, so is calling someone from your smartwatch.  Many of today’s smartwatches lack the blockbuster media capabilities our phones do and to be honest who cares about little notifications to your watch.

In fact, your cell phone can probably do an even better job of telling the time. For example, many of these smartwatches have poor battery life.

Even if you still wanted a smartwatch the price tag is not worth the cool factor. Smartwatch manufacturers would be wise to price these gadgets accordingly. Finally, it seems the smartwatch manufacturers are releasing new models almost every other month. Samsung took the lead on jump starting this trend. The long awaited Apple Watch did not deliver as was expected. Don’t forget with the exception of a few almost all smartwatches are reliant on your smartphone.

Fitness band

In fairness to the smartwatch they might look cool. Unfortunately, that can’t be said for the fitness bands. Fitness bands are nothing more than glorified pedometers. They measure the amount of steps you take and or track your sleeping habits. Some will provide notifications to your band that are relayed from the phone. Yeah, I really need that.

I haven’t found any yet that you can use to monitor your blood pressure. Many of the new fitness bands will track your heart beat. However, this isn’t enough for blood pressure measurements.

If the wearable tech industry wants to get our attention they will have to invent better products that are affordable. Until then, I wouldn’t bother purchasing any.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CIVIL LAW AND CRIMINAL LAW | MISSISSAUGA LAWYER

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CIVIL LAW
AND CRIMINAL LAW | MISSISSAUGA LAWYER
 
Many prospective clients will call with questions regarding the difference between civil law and criminal law.
 
Some people ask if they can criminally charge a company for not paying them properly. Some people will ask if they can start a lawsuit for something that might not necessarily be considered civil.
 
A great deal can be written on this topic. However, I will try to describe the distinction briefly.
 
Civil law deals primarily with disputes that people have amongst each other that includes companies. For example, you loaned money tosomeone and they won’t pay it back. It can also involve a situation where you might have been assaulted and are now looking to sue.
 
Criminal law deals largely with the state. For example, getting arrested. In the situation of an
assault you would report it to the police and they would follow up with whether or not criminal charges should be laid.
 
If you are dealing with a civil matter its best to speak with a civil litigation lawyer.
 
If you are dealing with a criminal matter its best to speak with a criminal lawyer.
 
If you have any questions feel free to call my office.

Employment Law

Employment Law

The popularity of Facebook, Twitter and other social media and blogging sites has brought new challenges for employees and employers. In the early simple days of the internet employers struggled with how to harness the power of the internet for business all the while ensuring employees were not goldbricking while surfing Ebay, Amazon, on-line newsgroups and emailing friends all day.

Let`s face it the first thing many of us do on arrival at work is turn on the computer and goof off. We check the news, emails, shopping sites etc. We also use the computer and our time at work to book personal appointments, schedule and organize events, look up miscellaneous information and sale items. Don`t forget during this time you are likely making personal phone calls to family members, texting and off and on chatting with other employees at work. Wait, that’s not it you might go on a coffee break and of course lunch.

If that wasn`t bad enough enter social media sites such as Facebook. The stats for how many of us have a Facebook account and how many log in daily is astounding. See here:

Facebook Statistics, Stats & Facts For 2011

Let`s just say it’s a lot and those are stats from 2o11. I can only imagine that the number has increased.

Take a look at this Forbes Magazine article from 2012 that basically says we are spending a lot of time at work goofing off on non-work related sites such as Facebook etc:

Employees Really Do Waste Time at Work

So after all this one would wonder…who out there is actually working?

It is important for employers to set clear boundaries about internet usage. It is equally important that an employee is aware of these boundaries. The absence of any policy or procedure at the workplace could spell trouble for both employers and employees.

Speak to an Employment lawyer about how you can avoid this problem. I am a lawyer practising in Mississauga serving Brampton, Oakville, Burlington, Milton and the greater Toronto area.
