Smartphones--Powerful Business and Consumer Tools


“We were attracted to each other at the party, that was obvious! You're on your own for the night, that's also obvious... we're two adults.”Alex Forrest, “Fatal Attraction,” Paramount, 1987

The other evening I left the office, got about a half block and had to pull a U-turn to go back for my smartphone. I’ve left my billfold at the office a few times but never bothered to retrieve it … just drove a little more carefully the next morning. Sure, I have a tablet and ultrabook at home that I could have used; but jeezz, it’s my smartphone! It’s not like I’m addicted to it. It’s not like I sleep with it … silly house rules!
It’s no wonder the smartphone has taken off so rapidly around the globe. From almost anywhere, it enables you to be in touch with everyone, virtually anytime.
While the devices are subsidized by carriers in the Americas (O.K., there’s a “service contract” attached, but still…) few other countries started down that dark path by letting you buy your device anywhere and giving you contract breaks on the volume of usage. The device price limited some users’ choices; but for a growing number of folks, it was a justifiable investment.

Steve Jobs is the real Big Brother and iPhone users are zombies

The impact of Edward Snowden is still being felt on a daily basis and is even growing due to the continued release of information in the form of classified slides from the NSA. In recent months the information coming out of these slides has been quite alarming and ranges from the fact that the NSA wrote the standard for most of the encryption used today to being able to break into our smartphones and harvest information almost at will. Of particular interest to the NSA was (and still is) the Apple iPhone. This is interesting simply because Apple has always touted the iPhone as more secure than everyone else’s. Of course, every other phone is still vulnerable to NSA eavesdropping, but the iPhone appeared to be much more vulnerable and had specific details listed in the slides released so far.

In May, the developers at the conference noted that there is more than 120,000 applications in the BlackBerry World for BlackBerry's youngest operating system on the market, but this potentially positive information turned out to be pretty bad because it was revealed that one third of these applications came from the same developer.
