Google is probably the most powerful cyber “thing” known to men. However, nothing and no one can be even compared with the mysterious and overwhelming powers of the good old Mother Nature. Do you still have some doubts about this claim? Then, listen to this story.
Google data center in Belgium experienced it first-hand, what it exactly means when the Mother Nature gets angry. Despite the latest state of the art technology and protective measures, it only took a couple of thunders to compromise Google’s data protection policy and strategy.
There are quite a few invaluable pieces of information, which were irrevocably lost due to this unusual accident. It turns out that the thunder strikes are the most serious types of data attacks, after all. And, what could be the most suitable moral of our story about Google and the Mother Nature?
Well, it depends who or what you favor more. Either way, despite its unparalleled power and size, Google still has to tremble on the stormy weather, just like the most of us, the mortal ones. We have to wait a little bit longer, before being able to challenge the Mother Nature with no consequences.
It is not a secret nor a surprise that for quite some time the busy little bees in the IT industry have been looking for a way to use our own body as a legitimate cyber tool. This is how, we have ended up with an unprecedented and overwhelming body implants invasion. Yet, that was not enough.
We have witnessed first-hand in both Hollywood and laboratories how the scientists are trying to find a new machine package for our brain and mind. The same result again. That is also not enough. Now, Ericsson plans to go even further with its groundbreaking Print Connected concept.
To make the long story short, Ericsson wants to use our bodies as the legitimate cyber tools. In other words, our body will serve as a conductor and connector at the same time. By touching the devices around us, we will be able to surf the Internet and communicate.
All of these sound lovely. Just as if it has been borrowed from some SF movie. On the other side, now it is the right moment to raise some eyebrows and ask questions about endangered privacy. We have every reason to believe that a little bit later is going to be too late.
Here is a disturbingly disappointing news. For the seven percent of all Americans their smartphone is the only Internet source. This may seem as an acceptable figure at the first glance. However, when you take into consideration that we are talking about almost 20 million users, then you get our point.
So, what is that supposed to mean? The land, which gave birth to Apple and Google, limits the option of people less fortunate to earn less than $30,000 a year. They do not have any kind of the Internet at home. All they have and use is a smart device in the palm of their hands. No more. No less.
The sad thing in this story is that we have the third world Internet conditions for a significant number of people, who live in, the number one country out of all first world countries – the one and only USA. We can talk all day long about our fascinating progress, but all of that is actually in vain.
The proper access to the Internet with a decent connection speed is the very mirror of our current level of achievements. So, the moral of our dark-cloud-story is that the busy little US bees have to find a way to “wire” this mobile-Internet-nation. Until then do not brag around, because it sounds bad.
It is said that a kind word can heal any wound. Maybe, that was the very thought the creators of the TalkSpace app had on their minds when they had designed it. So, what is TalkSpace all about? To make the long story short, while using some plain English expressions, this is a cyber therapy.
When you hit a wall in your heart or head, you can subscribe on a weekly level. What do you get in return? Well, you can talk or chat with a professional therapist. The TalkSpace offers a possibility of attending a video conference in the real time. We should not forget the numerous forums.
These forums, you can attend for free. As you can see, someone has thought of a nice way to benefit from the fruitful world of apps. This is a truly win-win scenario for both therapists and people with the different kinds of psychological issues. Great thing, indeed. Providing therapy with no limitations.
When it comes to the physical pain and troubles, guess we will have to wait a little bit longer. Although, cyber words can heal your soul, cyber hands cannot heal your wounds or fix the bones. For what is worth, your cyber-app-therapist has all the time and patience in the world, just for you. Talk!
The busy little bees in the UK police force have come up with an intriguing idea. How about reporting a crime by using the Internet instead of using your phone, which is the most common thing to do in these situations by default? Would not that be a ground shaking change to the entire system?
For what is worth, the UK police believes that this new system of online crime reporting could bring some substantial savings in both time and resources. Of course, this new solution would be reserved only for the crimes, which are not extremely urgent in their nature or required response time.
On the other side, in order for this warning system to truly work it is necessary to develop a fully functional and above all a secure website. We do not even dare to think what could happen, if some hacker is to put false warnings on this system. So, what is the moral of this story? What should we think?
It is not so hard to come up with an idea such as this one. However, it is a completely different thing to see it running. There is so much work to do and so many practical problems to solve. Yet, that does not mean we are supposed to give it up. Right? The crime, we are supposed to fight against it. Together.
The CES or the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas has just announced that we have one more member of our growing smart family. Among other things and gadgets, from now on, you can sleep in a smart bed. Actually, your kids can be privileged to dream sweet electronic dreams. What is this all about?
Well, in plain English, a smart bed is a bed with a brain of its own. By using your smartphone or tablet, you can connect and check what is going with your sleeping beauties and princes. Your smart bed will be able to monitor all crucial elements for a careless dream and give you appropriate notifications.
On the other hand, youncan adjust additional lights and angles of your kids’ bed. All functions are fully automatized and adjustable. It is a great thing to have a piece of furniture, which can follow your nocturnal activities in an appropriate way. There is only one thing left to be asked. Can you guess what it is?
Well, how much is going to cost to have your own guardian angel at night? You will have to pay more than $1,000 to get it, that is for sure. For the families with more than children this can be a serious investment. What do you think? Does a good night’s sleep has a price for you? Or maybe, it is truly priceless.
Here is something that will catch you completely by surprise. We live in the mobile world. Or, let us be a little bit more precise, in the wireless world. We like to be wireless and limitless at any given moment. Unfortunately, this freedom comes at a huge price to pay. Have you ever wondered what is happening with all those waves?
If the WiFi waves and signals can go through the walls of our houses, why should our own bodies be an exception in this case? We are talking about the small quantities of harmful emissions. However, what is happening after ten or twenty years of the constant exposure? You are not the only to use the WiFi.
You are going to feel even worse after hearing about the results of the following experiment. Two rooms. Two plants. One in the “rich” WiFi environment. The other one free from wireless desires. Which one did better? You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know the answer, do you?
So, what should we do with our WiFi killers, who are killing us softly? Should we go back and hide in the caves, for a change? What is the point of living after knowing, something so depressing such as this? Well, that is up to you to find out. Our job is done here. Time to switch off our WiFi. At least for a night.
Here is something worth mentioning. There is a new device on the market, which allows you to get DNK analysis results in less than 90 minutes. Why is this so important? Well, so far we have to wait for 2 days up to 2 weeks to get the results for the DNK samples we submitted. This is a revolutionary stuff.
The great thing about it is that you can carry your DNK laboratory with you. It looks like a small printer you can have it next you when needed the most. You take a sample, put it in a machine, and you wait for 90 minutes. Your samples will be analyzed on a national level and compared for matches.
In Arizona, the police was able to track and eventually arrest a killer based on the quick and reliable results of this portable device. The amount of data, which are processed during the analysis, is simply amazing. Such as the price of a couple of hundreds of thousands of dollars you have to pay to get it.
For what is worth, we are witnessing some useful practical application of the available technologies. This is supposed to be the primary role of the brave new cyber world. To protect us and keep us safe, rather than to spy on us and steal our privacy data. Looking forward to seeing some more like this.
