New Laptop? Here's How to Keep it Safe.

Tuesday, September 6, 2011 by cyberacoustics

Ok, I have purchased the Echo Smartpen and a new laptop over the weekend, for my daughter, who’s going off to college. I won’t bore you with which one I purchased, but what did come to mind is what happens if it’s lost or stolen. Our laptops often contain a lot of sensitive data for work and personal use, and for most people, the thought of losing all that information is more than a little frightening. For my daughter I would think it would be devastating.

Here are few tips you can use to keep your laptop safe and find its way home if it goes astray.


Identity, the Internet and Google+

Wednesday, August 31, 2011 by cyberacoustics

I need to stop blogging about Google+. I know this, but it’s just so interesting to me to watch a gigantic company like Google roll out a product with so much fanfare and then continue to make gigantic blunders.


A New Kind of Pen

Thursday, August 25, 2011 by cyberacoustics

With Labor Day fast approaching, college campuses are starting to rumble with the stampede of students heading back. With each new freshman class one might think the challenge of making new friends might be the most difficult part of campus life, but a close second is figuring out which gadgets they’ll need to stay competitive.


Google+ Adds Games

Thursday, August 18, 2011 by cyberacoustics

Since Google+ launched in late June, the usage statistics have been a little underwhelming. People seem to want to talk about Google+ more than they actually want to use it. None of my friends seem to know quite what to do with it—it’s almost as if it’s just another version of Facebook.


oBaz: An Online Bazaar

Thursday, August 11, 2011 by cyberacoustics

We’re always looking for a discount or a way to haggle to get the best price. This works best if you’re dealing with your local merchants, of course. But what if you want the new GoPro camera? You can’t walk into Best Buy and ask for a discount, nor can try and barter on Amazon. But what if you could hook up with other people who want the same thing? This is where oBaz comes into play.  


21st Century Rioting: A Look at the UK

Tuesday, August 9, 2011 by cyberacoustics

By now, you’ve probably heard about the London riots—tonight will mark the fourth evening in a row that those upset by the death of Mark Duggan will take to the streets all over the city. It’s not just London, either—violence has broken out in Birmingham, Nottingham, Liverpool, and Bristol. And of course, social media and technology is playing a rather interesting role, on both sides. 


Happy 30th Birthday to MTV

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 by cyberacoustics

I can’t believe it! 30 years ago this week, music videos could be viewed during the day instead of the wee hours of the morning. For years, we turned to MTV for music programming, as it was the bastion of hip culture. I bet you didn’t know that the first video ever played on MTV was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles.


Voyurl: A Look Inside Your Browsing Habits

Monday, August 1, 2011 by cyberacoustics

I remember reading a study a few years ago where researchers asked people to report how much alcohol they drank in a week, then compared the self-reported answers with the number of bottles the research subjects actually put outside their house. The amount that people actually drank vs. the amount they initially reported were incredibly different. We’re not a truth-telling people, especially when it comes to habits we may be ashamed of.

So, what about your browsing habits?


Getting to Know Spotify

Monday, July 25, 2011 by cyberacoustics

The time of owning your own music library is coming to an end. I've used Pandora and Rhapsody for years and the time has come to make a change. I heard about Spotify over a year ago, and was disappointed to learn that it was only available in Europe. But now that’s all changed. Like the Beatles coming to America, Spotify has finally arrived.


When Fiction is “Super True”

Monday, July 18, 2011 by cyberacoustics

I read a lot, and I’m a big fan of Russian author Gary Shteyngart, so when his new book “Super Sad True Love Story” came out, I was really excited to dive in. I blew through it in about two days, loving the dystopian picture of the future he presented.
