Smartphones. Are they sometimes too smart?

A very interesting thing happened to a friend of mine last week when they took ownership of their new Smartphone. I thought you might find it interesting. As a general rule, they never allow their mobile phone to access their location unless they’re using Google Maps to help them navigate around London. All their data and photographs were transferred to their new Smartphone and when they checked to find a photo in the Gallery they were astonished to find that ALL the photos, that’s five years worth, had been sorted into Albums, sorted by location that is.

Securing the worlds of the wealthy

It’s fair to say that nobody would go out of their house and leave their windows and doors open, or hand over their PIN number and their bank account details to a complete stranger. Yet while many of us know the obvious and more fundamental ways of keeping themselves and their property safe, the truth of the matter is that every day our lives are full of potential risks which we are blissfully unaware of.
