Wickr – This Message will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds

by Julie

  Does anyone out there remember Inspector Gadget? Where at the start of every episode, Inspector Gadget gets a note containing his next mission, the final line of each of these messages states that, “This message will self destruct in 5 seconds.”  Have you ever been in a situation where you only wished you could self destruct one of your e-mails, texts or an inappropriate picture or two? Phew! I have. …

the Stalker – For all the Pictures you were Afraid to Take

by Julie

  I went to a rock concert last year, and there was a 75 year old woman there, in a long blonde wig, a bikini top, hot pants and go-go boots. I will never forget my amazement when she turned to face me for the first time… I spent the entire rest of the evening fixated on trying to get a picture of her dancing without her seeing me. I …

by Julie

  Did you ever notice that just as you grow up, you realize you’re missing out on a whole bunch of neat stuff that our kids get to have?

Twine – Hang on, I Just got a Tweet from my Air Conditoner

by Julie

If you have even the mildest kind of anxiety issues, you know what its like to worry. I cant say I’ve actually ruined a vacation, or extended trip away from home, but I can say that I have worried about the house flooding or freezing or even the fridge breaking down (and yes, that happened once, hence my discomfort now.) Wouldn’t it be nice if the stuff at home could talk …

Surveillance camera checks out 36 million faces in a single second

by Edwin

When it comes to attaching a name to a face, I am really, really bad at that.

SocialShield – They Know What You Dont.

by Julie

  I worry about my daughters Internet use. Obviously, I spend a lot of time on the computer myself, and I feel as though I have taught her well, but lets face it, if you put an 8 year old up against an adult, well lets just say most of the time the adult is going to have the upper hand. I dont want her to feel as though I …
