Android Phones Secretely Recording Everything You Do


Watch out, Big Brother is watching and this is real scary.  If you have an Android phone please sit down before reading this.

A program called Carrier IQ is installed on your Android phone and it is recording every action and reporting every keystroke, sms message, web site you visit and even secure web sites, names and passwords to a server so your carrier can make your experience better.  Huh?

For more info and a video, see:

iOS 5.1 Battery Life



There have been many reports of horrible battery life with iOS 5 devices and especially with iPhone 4S devices.  A few days ago, Apple released iOS 5.1 beta to developers and chatter on the Apple discussion forums indicate that the battery problem (aka BatteryGate) may be resolved once iOS 5.1 is released to the public.  This battery problem has been strange as it doesn't affect every iPhone user, some have no problems at all.  Since developers are under non-disclosure, don't look for many comments, but the good news, is that it does appear to solve the issue.

IP Camera for iPhone


Wouldn't it be great if there was an IP Camera for your iPhone?  What?  Being away from your home or business but being able to watch and listen directly from your iPhone.  The possibilities are endless and it allows you to be in two places at one time (sort of).  Most IP Cameras that work with your iPhone require a lot of networking knowledge and technical know how in order to get the IP Camera working when you are not at your home or business.  CloudCam changes all that.

Plug the CloudCam in to your router and into the wall and you are done (no complicated port forwarding, dynamic dns and other things you don't really care about).  Next, download the iPhone App.  Enter the Camera ID and password (comes with every CloudCam and is unique) and you are instantly watching (and listening) from anywhere.

Want to record for up to 5 days, just insert a MicroSD card (like you find in a camera) and you are recording.

My Home Screen - Kelsey

Welcome to My Home Screen, where we take a look at what Apps you have on the first page of your SmartPhone and tell us why they are there.

Name: Kelsey
Age: 29
What I do: I am a Internet representative and I am student.



Maps- I get lost saddeningly easy. This really helps me watch where I’m going and where I have been.  And it’ll save the places you go often so you don’t have to keep retyping it in.

Dragon Go- This maybe a bit passe now with the IPhone 4S, but I love that while I’m driving I can speak into it and it will look up anything on Yelp!, Google, and about five other search engines automatically depending on what I asked for.

Blackboard Mobile Learn-This is an app that is great for people in school. My school uses this for their online classes and also helps me keep up with my other classes.  This is great for giving me those heart-stopping moments when I realize I have an assignment due in two hours.

Notes -This is a life saver I use the Dragon Dictation say what I need to do for the day and then use this to remember. It’s great.

Pageonce -You put in your credit cards, bank accounts and any other financials that you want to keep an eye on and then it sends me e-mail if any thing’s almost due and gives different credit card options.

Sprint Updates Price Plans for Mobile Broadband, No More Unlimited 4G

sprint logo

Effective today (11/13/11), Sprint has updated their service plan options for mobile broadband devices (USB modems, ExpressCards, and PCMCIA cards), hotspots (like the MiFi and Overdrive), and tablet/netbook devices. Until now, Sprint had offered unlimited 4G service on 4G-capable devices, with a monthly allowance (5GB or 10GB for most devices; tablets/netbooks had other options) for 3G service.

As of today, Sprint is no longer offering unlimited 4G service. Instead, users will have two or more plan options that include a monthly allowance for 3G and 4G data, with overage charges incurred if that allowance is exceeded. This is bad news for folks in 4G areas who use a lot of data, obviously, but the silver lining is that the new plans have more competitive pricing.

USB, ExpressCard, and PCMCIA card users will now have two plans to choose from:

  • 6GB of 3G/4G for $49.99/mo
  • 12GB of 3G/4G for $79.99/mo

Hotspot (i.e. MiFi and Overdrive) users will now have three plans to choose from:

  • 3GB of 3G/4G for $34.99/mo
  • 6GB of 3G/4G for $49.99/mo
  • 12GB of 3G/4G for $79.99/mo

Tablet/Netbook users will now have four plans to choose from:

  • 1GB of 3G/4G for $19.99/mo
  • 3GB of 3G/4G for $34.99/mo
  • 6GB of 3G/4G for $49.99/mo
  • 12GB of 3G/4G for $79.99/mo

Overages for ALL of the above plans will be billed at $0.05/mb.

One major question that EXISTING Sprint users who signed up before 11/13 are sure to have is, "will my plan change or will I still have unlimited 4G service?" Unfortunately, according to Sprint, they will NOT be "grandfathering" in existing customers - existing customers will receive a notification from Sprint and forced to choose one of the new plans.

(Note for smartphone/PDA users: these changes are for mobile broadband devices, hotspots, netbooks, and tablets only - data service is still unlimited on phones/PDAs with the Simply Everything and Everything Data plans)

Peplink Outbound Policy Management, Ultimate Failover Control



The Peplink Balance Outbound Policy offers complete control over how you utilize every available connection on your network. Do you provide WiFi for personal employee use, or have departments that have Internet access, but aren't "mission critical"? Now, imagine that your main Internet connection goes down, while all your mission critical hardware like credit card processing and management systems are still up and running. This is possible by sophisticated policy management and the ability to distinguish individual network connections and prioritize your network connections.

So, now that you've stopped all the bandwidth hogs when your main connection is down, 200Mb of data can suddenly become a very lucrative choice to provide network redundancy. Checkout the video below to see exactly how the Peplink Outbound Policy Management can work for you!
