Google Street View Cars are Compromising Our Privacy

by admin on Jun.07, 2010, under Security

Looks like Dr. Aman was on CBS News again, this time talking about Google Street View. Google was downloading emails and documents while taking pictures for Street View. I guess they took the opportunity to turn it into a war drive. Dr. Aman is right, there is no way that Google was doing this inadvertently! That doesn’t even make sense… I don’t drive around with my computer, “inadvertently” downloading people’s information from Wi-fi networks. You have to set your computer up to do something like that. P.S. Secure your wireless network for god-sakes!

Wireless Electricity Demonstration at the TED Conference

by admin on Sep.11, 2009, under Tech Gadgets

I love following the TED conference every year. They always have the coolest technology that won’t be in practical use for another 10 -20 years. If you don’t know of the TED conference, you should check it out. It’s the conference where Microsoft’s surface first appeared, as it was actually created by MIT researchers and not Microsoft.

This year they came up with something really cool, wireless electricity. It has been done in the past, but this shows practical application, such as powering TVs and charging cell phones. Imagine the possibilities, like driving into your garage and having it power your electric car. Fantastic!
