U Can’t Touch This

July 25, 2014

OK, I’ve officially checked off my blog bucket-list, “Use an MC Hammer song as a post title.”

InTouch on Night ShiftNow changing the channel from MTV Classic, on Tuesday’s at 10PM (9 Central) on NBC, “The Night Shift focuses on financially-strained San Antonio Memorial, its heroic and fun-loving staff, and their …” I couldn’t find the rest of the description on NBC’s website, but elsewhere I learned some of the staff includes returning Army veterans. Interesting premise. I was very happy to discover that even though the hospital is “financially strapped,” they had the wisdom to invest in Kronos for Healthcare to help them help control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, improve workforce productivity, and deliver quality, cost-effective care. See? There’s a Kronos InTouch® right there on the wall! Well played, San Antonio Memorial.TouchID

Speaking of the InTouch®, I read in that “Apple will not be granted a trademark for the Touch ID authentication system introduced alongside the iPhone 5s, according to a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office decision revealed Monday, because it could be confused with an earlier Touch ID trademark assigned to timekeeping company Kronos.”

In a comment posted following the article, Apple enthusiast “scotty321” wrote “Nobody is going to confuse some clunky timecard system hanging on the wall at their office with Apple’s svelte Touch ID fingerprint unlocking system for the iPhone.” scotty, ouch! “Clunky?” I think it’s pretty svelte. Later in the comments, the light of online communities shone when “zoetmb” replied, “Clunky? Do you even know what Kronos produces? Among their many implementations of Touch ID are sophisticated terminals for use in the gaming industry that are used in casinos.“ Thanks, zoe.

Anyway, it’s Friday. Get up and dance like Hammer!

    Funny…I was just listening to a mix called “Songs you used to listen to on your Walkman.” This one certainly qualifies!
