Through software made by companies like ActivTrak and Time Doctor, which have capabilities like tracking keystrokes, taking screenshots, and determining your ability to meet a deadline based on a photo of the sweatpants you chose to wear today. Okay that last one doesn’t exist yet, which is why you’ll want to read CNBC’s investigation of  employee productivity tracking and how it’s helping companies confirm the value of remote work policies.

And now, we segue to an article about…Segway.

Before Elon Musk’s desire to disrupt the way we travel and name our children took over our newsfeeds, there was Dean Kamen and his mysterious invention known as the Segway. Fast Company reports that on July 15 Segway is ending production, putting an end to the preferred method of travel for obscure Silicon Valley execs and mall security guards everywhere.
