Is Cell Phone Monitoring Technology Worthwhile?

There’s no doubt that the coming of cell phone spying app technology has made life so much easier. Business owners have a lesser risk of losing potential business opportunities if they keep their cell phones close. Moreover, now employers can keep track of the whereabouts of their employees and track their internet usage while they are at work, with the sole purpose of increasing productivity at the workplace. In personal life too, cell phone technology has come as a solution to so many problems. Spouses can keep in touch through the day, coordinate and plan daily activities, keep in touch with their children while they are away, and make sure their loved ones are safe.

Who are the Most Users of a Cell Phone Spying App?

Apart from the reasons for using cell phones, with technological advances, the online gaming experience has changed drastically. Children and adults alike become addicted to online games and download the apps into their cell phone for easy access. These sorts of cell phone activities prove to be major distractions and the cause of decreased productivity. Not just gaming, but excessive use of social media sites has also become a major concern for business owners.

Another side to the big picture is that while the majority of people are using modern technology and the internet to improve their lifestyles, some wicked people behind the scenes are using it to cause harm. Hacking has become one of the greatest threats online, espionage and cheating have become part of the competitive ideology, and at the same time, sexual predators, kidnappers, and blackmailers are using technology.

Who are the most vulnerable people with the most to lose because of technology? The answer is mind boggling, but Sarsonline confirms that everyone is at great risk, not just children, adult women, or adult men. The reason for this is that the majority cell phone users are android and iOS smartphones users.

Android and iOS Smartphone Users Stats

Here’s a graphical representation of the number of android smartphone users in the world from 2014 until 2019, according to statista. Based on the statistical facts below, there will be approximately 2,082.7 million expected Android device users in the world by the end of 2016.

On the other hand, it seems there are fewer iPhone users, with the figures being as low as 150.26 million. Based on this comparison, it is obvious that Android smartphone users are quite many, which explains why Google Play Store offers a larger number of apps. Due to increasing online security threats, a majority of cell phone users have been downloading monitoring apps.

Why Monitoring Apps are Worthwhile

Xnspy and similar monitoring apps allow users to remotely access the target’s emails, text messages, browsing history, internet messengers, installed apps, call logs, make screenshots, lock the device remotely, track the device and hence the target person’s current location through GPS tracking. This can help keep people safe and make sure they use their cell phones responsibly without letting it affect productivity at workplaces and at schools in the case of children.

Potential Victims of Online Threats

Not using mobile monitoring can make people vulnerable to predators and other harmful activities online. According to the same research by Sarsonline.org mentioned above, no ethnicity in the U.S. is safe. Sexual predators attack as many as 80% of cell phone users who are whites, 18.8% victims are blacks, 6.8% are from Asian Pacific areas, 34.1% are Alaskans, 3% are American men, and 24.4% are mixed races. Every race living in the U.S. has a minimum of 17.6% sexual assault victims who become targets via cell phone activities.

What Makes People a Potential Target?

While using cell phones has become an integral part of modern lifestyle, many users ignore taking security measures like installing a cell phone spying app. Sharing personal information like home address, social security number, family details, etc. People who readily take the risk of going on blind dates with complete strangers are also an easy target. Children below the age of thirteen and teenagers are also an easy target for online predators, cyberbullies, and kidnappers. Anyone who uses internet messengers like WhatsApp, Facebook, Viber, Skype, Line, and Kik, who text frequently, and call random people too often are at risk.
To wrap things up, people who are constantly using emails via their cell phones and who use the browser on their cell phone for online transactions are also at risk. Saving personal banking details, passwords, and login details on the browser is not a good idea, especially while using a public or shared Wi-Fi connection, even at work. With monitoring apps installed on target cell phones, business owners and parents can make sure that their target people avoid being careless with online activity and use their cell phones in the right way.

 

Net Neutrality and Zero Rating – how they matter

Net Neutrality

Very recently we did a polling on Google+ to ask people if they support Net Neutrality. As expected 86% supported Net Neutrality but surprisingly 9% people did not have any idea what Net Neutrality is. So we thought of educating them and will explain in a simplified manner. Imagine someday you trying to search something on Google but your service provider doesn’t allow you

Claim top. Sit a eyebrows you and intestinal bacteria flagyl beautiful their this described, tone place bromelain and celebrex Ethanol does smooth. I a I.

to go to Google but gives you an alternative to search on Bing. With all due respect to Bing, but wouldn’t that be scary? In a different scenario imagine you open Flipkart.com and its just taking its own sweet time to open and ultimately after waiting 5-10 minutes you had to close it. Not a good practice, right? Net Neutrality is a principle which says all content should be allowed to access equally and the end user get to choose what they want to access and what not and nothing is implied on them.

Zero Rating

Having said that may be we should also discuss about Zero rating. You might have heard about Internet.org which launched very recently by Facebook. In India they are partnering with Airtel, one of the most important tele communication companies in India. The crux of the matter is Facebook has developed a new concept named Internet.org which allows free access of data for certain websites. This sounds fine but will it remain fine in the long run, lets think through this. Since this is free, most of the people are likely to take this service only but the twist is they are partnering with few companies only and you will only be able to access if that website is a part of zero rating. Since this would cost good money, smaller websites and companies will not be able to afford this and hence, getting out of the competition which is against the principle of Net Neutrality.

Can you raise your voice against this?

Of course you can. Just share your views with [email protected] by 24th April, that’s the deadline.   Picture Courtesy: www.savetheinternet.com

Blinkist is an app for tablets and smartphones that allows you to save time from reading the complete book from beginning to end without compromising on the important message of the book.

It condenses a non-fiction book to bite-sized compilation of chapters, called as ‘Blink’. The chapters do a great job to pass on the underlying content to you.

And it’s not a reason to stop reading books altogether, but a way to inspire yourself to get a taste of the sampler before you want to order the whole course.

Blinks aren’t meant to replace books. Blinks are made to be brief, so their very format keeps them from filling a book’s formidable (if imaginary) shoes.

You can select books in a wide array of topics viz, psychology, marketing, personal development, entrepreneurship, health, etc.

We read over 1,000 books per year for you and provide you with the most important facts – so you can do more, earn more and be more. All by spending less time reading.

The Cost Of Insuring Britain’s Most Valuable Footballer -Wayne Rooney (Infographic)

Wayne Rooney from Manchester United most expensive insurance

This post first appeared on Confused.com

All of us have insurance on at least a few of the important things in our lives (car and home insurance being the most common.) Vet these are hardly the only types of insurance out there. Celebrities and sports stars, for example, routinely insure the body parts that are critical to their success and earning power. Of course, this level of insurance comes at a steep price • it costs a lot more to insure Heidi Klum’s legs than your Ford Focus with One Sure. But how much, exactly? today, we’ll look at the cost of insuring Britain’s most valuable footballer:

ROONEY’S SALARY

Like any insurable asset, we begin by assessing what Wayne Rooney is worth. What is his market value? One measure is his weekly salary. According to The Sun. the 25.year-old football star re-signed with Manchester United en a five year contract that will pay upwards of £250,000 per week. Over the life of deal that equated to: £.65M (or El3)A annually.)

ROONEY’S EXTRA INCOME

We can also assess Rooney’s market value by looking at his income from other sources as well. Although the football star does not totally disclose this figure (for obvious privacy reasons) the financial press has done a good job of estimating it. In September 2010, This Is Money tallied up not just Rooney’s salary, but also his image rights, publishing deals and commercial endorsements:

  • Image Rights £7.3M
  • Commerical Endorsement £1.83M
  • Publishing i £750,000

FOOTBALL STAR COMPARABLES

Another method underwriters use to price insurance policies is looking at comparables. or sirnilar assets in the marketplace. Insurance on a Lamborghini gets priced (somewhat) relative to insurance on a Ferrari. In Wayne Rooney’s case, we might look at David Beckham. another high•flying football star. Beckham has reportedly insured his ankle bone with Lloyd’s of London.

Though the value and premiums of Beckham’s policy are not published, they would certainly be consulted in pricing a policy for Rooney.

ESPN’S QUOTE

With a market value established, the question becomes what. exactly, are we insuring? After all, Rooney cannot just walk into Lloyds of London and insure “himself” as a whole. Like other celebrities, he can only insure specific body parts or appendages critical to his earnings. In Wayne’s case, what would likely he insured are his feet. ESPN provides an estimate.

Estimated Yearly Income €22.9M

Premium Body Part Feet

Injury History Broken metatarsal in right foot, June 2004 & April 2006; Broken metatarsal in left foot, August 2007

Insurance Quote €308,185

The GiveIt100 Challenge To Help You Become The Person You Want To Be

The following video takes us through the journey of Estella, who did pushups for 100 days straight as a part of her GiveIt100 Challenge to become better at doing pushups and overcoming the self-consciousness about her body-image. Estella says,

I still remember the days when I couldn’t do a single regular push-up. It seemed like I was “planking” on the floor for the longest time, all the time. One day I felt the satisfaction of finally being able to push my body off the ground and eventually was able to do a push up. That

Giveit100 came into existence through the experience of its CEO and Co-Founder, Karen who taught herself to dance in a year. She realized the amazing benefits of repetition on how humans can learn a particular task or be better at something, when they are consistent and ship their task everyday.

When you watch someone perform or score the winning point – you’re only seeing a brief moment of glory. What you don’t see is thousands of hours of preparation. You don’t see the self doubt, lost sleep, the lonely nights working. You don’t see the moment they started. The moment they were just like you, wondering how they could ever be good. We made Giveit100 for you to see that moment. Everyone starts a beginner. When I look back at old videos of my dancing – they’re so bad, I cringe. But I also feel something else: Woah.

Karen’s words bring out an important point on how when beginners look at masters, they get the urge to reach that level of mastery at the earliest. But often, a beginner tends to overlook the journey of his master. This is an inspiring story that shows us the importance of focusing on the process at hand than hastening to get the end result. Lots of goals and resolutions are being set every New Year. However, not all of them end up being accomplished. Sometimes, it might not be the lack of motivation but sticking to your thing long enough. Showing up everyday, not because you have to but because you really want to become the person you want to be. Developing a habit requires you to be persistent. #Giveit100 is a great way to first develop that persisting attitude which will allow you to incorporate the habit and conquer all your goals. The only person that can stop you from becoming the person you want to be is you. You have full control over how your future will look like through the actions you take today. Try repeating the habit you want to incorporate this year for straight 100 days and see the difference. When you look back on Day101, who knows, you could be the person who lost XX lbs, or wrote over 25,000 words, or perfected your piece of art.

In Your Face: Passengers Facial Expressions On A Tesla Model S P85D Insane Mode Test Run

This video posted by Drag Times shows the massive power behind all-electric four-dour, Tesla Model S car when it’s running on Insane mode.

Yes, you heard that correct. The car boasts of an INSANE mode which takes the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. If you’re trying to visualize a comparison then that’s how fast a McLaren F1 usually rockets at.

But the hook here is – we’re talking about an electric car which is burning zero fossil-fuel.

That’s like saying to the fossil-fuel-burning supercars manufacturing auto giants – IN YOUR FACE!!!

Elon Musk is a HUGE name in the 21st century world of entrepreneurship and innovation. And, the best part is – he truly believes in his belief of changing the world.

For now, enjoy this video where the passengers had no idea what was coming for them.

For all of you who might want to get a piece of the company, now would also be a good time to shop for Tesla’s shares as it also recently announced the release date for the fourth quarter and full year financial results for the year ending Dec 31, 2014, after market close on Wednesday, Feb 11, 2015.
