IMPORTANT: Posting your kid’s photo to Facebook? Maybe think twice.

Technology and Facebook can be wonderful things; however, as technology continues to advance (such as facial recognition), we cannot foresee how this technology can be used in a way that can ultimately compromise our being for financial gain, or ill intent. In all my years as a tech guru, I have seen the good that technology has benefited us; but, there will always be that element of evil that will take technology advancement and use it against us. I encourage you to read this article about posting our kids on Facebook or any social network for that matter and how this ultimately profiles them in a way (as they develop) and how this could be used in the future.

In other words, it’s possible that your precious child’s face is already being studied and analyzed by Facebook in its efforts to build better facial recognition algorithms. What those algorithms could be used for in the future is anyone’s guess, as even Facebook won’t confirm they will just stick to suggested photo tags.

Did you know that “500,000 Android users downloaded malware made by one developer”?

Malware on our Android devices is typically introduced by means such as portrayed in this article, with one goal in mind; and, that is to steal your data. Think about it, your smartphone contains a profile of YOU; where sensitive data could be used to compromise YOU on a personal and a financial basis. I tell people, treat your smartphone as if it is your wallet…

The malware was disguised as various games, and didn’t have any legitimate function; rather, they crashed every time they were launched. Now for the worst part: Stefanko said that before Google removed the apps, two of them were featured in the store’s trending section.

What is 2G, 3G, 4G or 5G?

This is a question I get asked a lot. What is 2G, 3G, 4G or 5G?

Simply put,  The G here stands for generation. The higher the generation, the higher the upload/download speed.

For example, here are the generations of GSM network standard (see definition below of GSM). They are GSM (2G, 2.75G), WCDMA (3G), HSDPA (3.5G), HSUPA (3.75G), LTE (4G, including FDD-LTE, TD-LTE), The G here stands for generation. The higher the generation, the higher the upload/download speed.

GSM is the full name is Global System for Mobile Communication. It’s a digital mobile communication system widely used in Europe and other parts of the world. It is the most widely used of the three digital wireless telephone technologies (TDMA, GSM, and CDMA).
