Mobile Phone Security and Giveaway

Brought to you by the folks at Intel
In the old days of computing, the biggest barrier to someone getting access to your data was physical. If someone couldn't get into your house / apartment, they couldn't get access to your system, and thus your data on the system was protected. To get on the Internet, you needed to use a modem, and the only time your data was exposed was the limited amount of time you were online.

Jump forward a decade or so, and nowadays everything is online, in the cloud and all computers are practically always connected to the Internet. Even your phone. How well is your phone protected?

What would happen if you were to lose your phone? Do you have the phone at least protected by a PIN or other access control method like biometrics? If not, what could someone access on your phone without that minimum level of protection?

Bad PIN selection

What Can DNA Genetic Testing Tell You?

Human DNA by Виталий Смолыгин
Human DNA by Виталий Смолыгин
Medical technology has come a long way over the past century. Things that were once the stuff of science fiction can now be done in a hospital, clinic, or even at home. Examining DNA is one type of testing technology that is relatively new when you think about it. Even back in the 1980s, it was not considered quite as reliable as it is today. There is a lot of different information that can be gleaned from DNA genetic testing, including finding out where your ancestors came from, your relationship to other members of your family, and even your predisposition toward certain conditions or diseases.

Sap-to-Syrup Farmer's Breakfast @ Drumlin

Mass Audubon Logo
We used to be Mass Audubon members. We probably will be again, just not right now. One of their annual fund raising activities in the spring (late winter technically I guess) at Drumlin Farm in Lincoln is their Sap-to-Syrup Farmer's Breakfast. This year, the event is on March 15th and 16th from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Call 781-259-2206 to register or you can register through their web page. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for children, with kids under 2 free. They usually sell out early, so if you want to enjoy a breakfast of hearty pancakes with maple syrup, and see how sap is collected, be sure to get your tickets soon.

Inflatable Giveaways

The inflatable giveaways seem to be starting, or at least their blogger opportunities to sign up to participate with them are. If you happen to run across any opportunities for bouncy houses, please let me know about them (via Facebook or Twitter is fine). I'll more than likely sign up for them. Thanks. Like last year, I'll try to maintain a directory of all of them. So far, I've signed up for two events. One starting on 2/28, the other starting 3/6. If we're lucky, I'll get to review one this year, too.

Irish Drinking Shirt from Review
Another holiday coming up, another t-shirt to review, this time for St. Patrick's Day, thanks to the folks at and Tomoson. If you've been visiting here for a while, you know I'm constantly looking for new t-shirts and places to get them. The old shirts were getting kind of raggedy and that George Bush shirt just had to go, even if it was one of my few Bloom County t-shirts I still had that wasn't ripped. If the shirt looks like new, the sayings just date themselves sometimes. Thankfully, I was given the opportunity try out one of the shirts from
