Junk – Can everything be JUNK! Disposible Technology

I have been saying this for years…   No one can really keep up with technology, but companies are certainly trying to force the issue with the methods they produce product today.  It’s truly sad that we have gone down this route, might be too late to turn around though.

Companies creating product that cannot be upgraded, batteries that cannot be replaced and the quality of the product just not standing up.  This includes everything from little electronics to large appliances!

Found this great article today that I wanted to share, it positions the current situation perfectly using the products of today!

That shiny new Android phone you just bought? Yeah, it’s a piece of trash. No, I’m not some Google-hating Apple fanboy. The iPhone 4 is junk, too.

So is that giant, flat-screen 3D TV and tablet you bought in the past year. It’s trash. All trash.

Of course, everything ends up broken, obsolete and unusable at some point. The trouble is, the companies that make our consumer electronics are deliberately or carelessly decreasing the useful life of our gadgets so they can sell us another one sooner

Security – Keeping Kids SAFE – Filtering Emails & Soon Social Media

safe - photo/picture ...

Something all parents want to do is keep our kids safe from cyberbullying, sexting and inappropriate messages which is very difficult.   There are a lot of things we can do, but we all need something else. 

Soon there will be a program called MouseMail that can filter messages on your kids smartphones.  Most kids will not be happy about it, but when are they when we as parents try to protect them from others and themselves.

ARTICLE – USATODAY – MouseMail filtering program traps kids’ cyberbullies

MouseMail’s free Web-based e-mail features will be available Thursday at MouseMail.com; the free text message filtering applications will launch that day on most major smartphones, with Apple iPhone expected to add the app soon. Later this month, a premium service will be added (no price set) that monitors social networks and lets parents look for mentions of their kids’ names.

HOW IT ALL WORKS:

• Parents add children’s e-mail accounts into the family profile page on MouseMail.com’s portal.

• MouseMail checks each e-mail against a list of approved contacts and a dictionary of suspicious or inappropriate words.

• E-mails that do not include suspicious words or phrases and are sent from approved e-mail contacts pass on to the child’s e-mail account. on Google, Yahoo or other e-mail sites. Questionable e-mails are sent to parents.

• Parents download an app to a child’s smartphone and set up the program so that they are forwarded questionable text messages. Parents can get alerts about e-mail and text messages online or on their own cellphones

Tablets are COMING – look out!

Rumours have been going wild from everyone about what product is going to go up against Apple and the iPad.  They are starting to arrive and I bet there will be many more for the Christmas session.  It’s going to get very confusing very quickly – Android 2.2 or 3.0 in the new year – Palm O/S – WIN7  and RIM with QNX.  You are going to see lots of options with Android as any manufacture can use this.  Palm O/S you will only see HP most likely, but HP will have and does have a WIN7 versions.  Others will also be using WIN7 and QNX will be only on RIM offering.

One of the key features most if not all of these products will be a USB Ports and Flash support.   Memory I believe will be key and one of the limiting factors with the iPad, what are people doing with these – reading and listening to books – Picture slide shows – what do these things use a lot of – MEMORY. 

Samsung Galaxy Tab – Android 2.2 7″

RIM – BlackPad – QNX  – 7″ – Might be announced next week

Viewsonic ViewPad 100 – 10″ WIN7 Atom N455

Just to mention a few, this market will be changing and I see too many options – key to success is the backend, the applications and ease of use.
