Windows 8 was envisioned as a desktop OS capable of fighting the consumers' fling with Tablets. Now that the war is against Tablets AND PC's, can Windows 10 draw consumers to it?

The Rise of Communication through Haptic Feedback

By Brad YaleJan 14, 2015

For most of us, haptic feedback takes two forms - a vibrating phone in your pocket alerting you to an incoming message and key stroke vibrations when typing a text message/playing a game on your smart device. This though, is a shame because as Apple and Google engineers know, haptic feedback could be and should be used for so much more.

Mobile Security: Physical Location Tracking

By Brad YaleDec 5, 2014

On the level of global commerce, we are addicted to devices. By the start of 2015, it is estimated there will be 3 billion Android devices in circulation around the world. Of those, there are roughly 19,000 distinct devices in operation. On the same accord, there are roughly 550 million active iOS devices globally with another few hundred million being phased out. As a global culture we love our mobile devices. Yet here is the thing, by all measures, our devices aren't all that secure. In both data and physicality, our devices have an operational tendency to betray us. 

This said, a question: what is more worrisome, mobile data security risks or mobile device physical security risks?

How the Internet Works: The Deep Web

By Brad YaleOct 21, 2014

The Deep Web. The Deepnet. The Invisible Web. The Hidden Web. 

Maybe you have heard of the Deep Web. Maybe you even know how to access the Deep Web. 

Chances are though, you've never heard of the Deep Web and you have no idea how to access it. The Deep Web sounds mysterious, elusive and somewhat dangerous. By all accounts, it is all these things. 

So, what is the deep web? How does the deep web work? How do you access it?

In this installment of "How the Internet Works", we tackle the mysterious Deepnet.

How the Internet Works: A Call for Personal Security

By Brad YaleOct 13, 2014

It's very easy, after reading "The Snappening" Snapchat security breach news, to determine fault lies with users. It would be very easy and convenient to blame the leak not on the leakers, but on the users who sent sexually explicit materials to friends, lovers and strangers. This conclusion is easy to draw yet, it only skims the surface of the true issue at hand.  

Whatever you think of the materials leaked, the larger issue at play in "The Snappening" is how the public relates to, understands and uses public Internet architectures. If anything, "The Snappening" should serve as a beacon call for greater Internet security practice enlightenment. 

In this version of "How the Internet Works" we cover public Cloud architectures and the need for increased Internet security practices learning.

1830 wasn't so long ago

By John TraenkenschuhSep 18, 2014

My family and I had a meal in Pigeon Forge, in an old mill building that's quite old, in an area settled in 1830.  Walking in with a MacBook Pro certainly seemed odd to some, but no one noticed my phone offering tethering rights.  And so it was that I posted a blog in a building that dated back 160 or more years ago.
