Jobs Involving Communication Hardest to Replace by Machines

Want to stay relevant as machines gradually take over the world? Pick a job that can’t be automated. The work done by humans is getting systematically replaced by devices as time progresses and technology makes new leaps forward. It’s a fact of life that our society is all too familiar with. But there are still plenty of tasks that will be hard to replace by gadgets.

The jobs that machines fumble over are incidentally the same jobs that make life exciting. Choreographers, fire fighters, chiropractors, art directors, coaches, and many others can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that robots won’t render them irrelevant any time soon

VoipNow 2.0.4 and Automation

VoipNow 2.0.4 is available. It also includes VoipNow Automation, the latest public release before GA version. GA version will be out at Parallels Summit 2010, maybe the largest hosting gathering in US. I am saying maybe because I don’t know what HostingCon will do this year and in the past last two years it was a disappointment. Anyway, 4PSA is a Silver Sponsor at Parallels Summit, so you are kindly invited to attend and visit us there.

VoipNow Automation Release Candidate

We are showing VoipNow Automation Release Candidate at ITExpo 2010 East. In fact, we are going to release it in the next days with VoipNow Professional 2.0.4 GA. There are several important changes if we compare it with VoipNow Automation Beta, the most important being the support for Cloud Platform Bricks. This was something that we initially decided to bring in a future version of Automation, but eventually we reconsidered and decided to put it in the first public version, because there were too many changes for our customers.

VoipNow Automation Beta

We launched VoipNow Automation Beta, more details are available here.

Be aware that the beta is part of VoipNow 2.0.4 beta. Do not install or upgrade to this version of VoipNow on production machines!!! You can do this only if you change some paths in installer, but anyway you have been warned!

This beta targets people with some Linux experience, because we do not ship the installation wizards for the online store. Installations instructions are available here.

If you find any issue, do not hesitate to send a bug report.

Please DO NOT open support tickets about this Automation demo, when we will release the beta we will provide you with details regarding bug reporting.

Also, try not to make Behavior or deployment changes in Automation because we haven’t yet implemented limitations in demo mode, therefore you can do much harm and other people will not be able to play with it. Have fun and if you want to comment you can do it here.
