The Internet of Things is a broad category of technologies that have the potential to radically transform the way in which we all live our lives. With the ability of devices that were previously dumb to become autonomous, the efficiency gains that will potentially be had with the Internet of Things will far eclipse anything that has occurred thus far in human history.
One of Arizona’s most prominent internet entreprenuers, Jason Hope, has taken to the internet recently. He has been proselytizing people on the incredible benefits that the Internet of Things and all of the technologies that it encompasses will be able to confer on everyday Americans. Hope believes that, within the next decade, almost everything will achieve a level of autonomy that has never before been seen.
Hope is quick to point out to those who say that these ideas are far-fetched that many of the current mobile technologies that are being used by companies in the present form the basis of what will someday be available to everyday households. Hope points to Amazon order fulfillment centers as one example. Amazon has developed an army of highly sophisticated robots that are capable of not only stocking shelves but also removing items from shelves and delivering them to areas in other parts of the warehouse. Although this technology is currently extremely expensive, only being able to be afforded by the largest companies in the world, Hope points to the fact that most technological devices have traditionally followed, more or less, a model of exponential decay in their costs. This implies that, very soon, these technologies will be available to almost every business in America.
One of the areas in which Hope sees these technologies being directly applied is in shopping. Very soon, Hope says, grocery stores will begin deploying automated shopping systems, allowing for customers to pre-order their groceries either online or by telephone. The automated shopping systems will then be able to fulfill the order, having it ready for the customer to either pick up or have the groceries delivered directly to the customer’s house.
Hope says that areas of innovation like this will provide some of the greatest opportunities in the coming decade.

Clients can now order property reports directly from Nationwide Title Clearing’s (NTC) website. This follows the recent launch of company’s updated website. NTC’s new online ordering system is aimed at helping to eliminate title defects, as sellers and buyers can now readily access various property reports.
Property titles are critical during any transactions. To this end, when an error occurs, the transaction is slowed down or even aborted. In some scenarios, title defects have led to mortgage companies foreclosing the wrong properties. This situation has inconvenienced everyone involved. The recent increase in the cases of title defects has been a worrying factor for the real estate industry. According to the company, property records are the key to clear titles and elimination of buybacks and wrongful foreclosures.
Many factors can cause title defects. One of the most common causes of the problem is several people claiming the same report. These defects occur when individuals claim properties that do not belong to them. In addition, the wording of titles has also led to many defects. It is a requirement that every title must be worded as per the rules and regulations of the area where a given property is located. In case the wording is wrong, the title becomes irrelevant. The absence of the required signatures can also lead to faults on the title. Crucial signatories in a transaction include that of the spouses. Moreover, failure to follow filling procedures has also been associated with many title defects. This information was originally published on National Mortgage News as highlighted in the link below http://www.nationalmortgagenews.com/press_releases/nationwide-title-clearing-revamps-website-online-ordering-available-1041942-1.html
Speaking during the announcement, John Hillman advised buyers and sellers to address title defects as early as possible. Failure to do so will lead to cancellation of the transaction and frustration of both parties. John is the chief executive officer of NTC. He was one of the main figures behind the launch of NTC’s online ordering system.
According to Hillman, the new platform is in-line with the company’s goal of offering fast, simple, and systematic process of securing property reports. This ease will help revolutionize the mortgage industry. Some of the reports that clients can order online are Tax Status(Plus) Report, Tax Status Report, Current Owner Report, and Assignment Verification Report.
