CellPhoneSecurity 150x150 Weekly Thoughts: Cell Phone SecurityCell phone security is a growing market due to the reliance we put on our mobile devices.

Whether it be the office emails or your bank information, our cell phones are becoming more like our present day computers and the information that each phone has is becoming more and more valuable.

This past week, I looked at an article from Engadget which discussed how Apple wants to impose some new security to help protect their iPhone users.? While it does restrict some freedom’s, I couldn’t help but think their ideas and technology may find their way to become mainstream soon.

The other weekend, I helped a friend figure out how to put music on their cell phone and view Microsoft Office Documents and PDF files on the same device.?

videogame 150x150 Video Game Consoles DisappearingVideo game consoles have come along way from the early SNES consolde and duckhunt (classic game) to the XBox 360 and the Halo series.?

car dashboard 150x150 Weekly Thoughts: Car AdvancementWhat are your thoughts on car technology?? Why does car technology and electronics seem like its so far behind from what I sit in front of on my desk.

Car technology and electronics is a popular field that seems to grow exponentially each year.? Our earlier cars had a basic speedometer, a radio and maybe fancy screen for the clock and outside temperature.?

Maybe not…
