Will work for energy: jobs robots are stealing

In the future these 9 jobs will be stolen by robots. You have been warned
store clerks
soldiers (potentially with flamethrowers)
sportswriters/ reporters

These do make logical sense. Unlike most all sentient beings robots are continually updated to meet the current day surroundings. Judging by number 2 I will need a career change.

You have been warned, good luck gents.

Mobile Banking Jump

In the fourth quarter of last year mobile banking jumped by an astounding 54 percent. many people, myself included, synced their various accounts to mobile devices during the holiday season. 11 million people are using a mobile app. 8 million are using text messages, and lastly 19 million use the built in browser. This feature is quite convenient and allows many people to access things conveniently. data costs, speeds, and security are still large issues though.

Rustock Shutdown

Recently the company Rustock was shut down by Microsoft in conjunction with the federal government. Because of this internet spam may be decreased by as much as 40 percent.  This was one of the more uncommon victories over internet criminals. Currently Rustock has been made inactive though it's inventors may be able to regain control over "Infected computers"
