FAA CONSIDERING CHANGING RULES FOR USE OF ELECTRONICS DURING FLIGHTS
The FAA is currently reevaluating the policies governing use of electronics during flights. It is expected that cell phones use will still not be allowed during flights but it is doubtful that a cell phone would work while a plane is in flight. While cell phones are portable, they were never intended to be used while in an aircraft moving at 300+ mph. Cell phones are short distance devices that connect from one cell tower coverage area to another as the device moves.
If you have ever forgotten to turn your cell phone off during flight, you might have discovered that the cell phone is not working when you arrive at your destination. The cell phone may be deactivated because the cell phone provider assumed that your cell phone account info was copied and was being used in another part of the country.
ON LINE COUPONS?
Have you heard about all the discounts and promo codes that are available online?
Recently, I logged into my vitamin supplier’s website and purchased some vitamins online. While checking out, I decided to surf the Internet for a promo code to discount my purchase. To my surprise, I found a promo code on a website that lists all kinds of discount promo codes. I didn’t get the vitamins for free but I received a 10% discount just for entering the promo code in the proper box during checkout. It was especially surprising that I didn’t have to enter my email only to be deluged with SPAM. The promo code was displayed and offered for free!
There are all kinds of ads on line that promise discounts when buying online. If you are in the market for anything, check the Internet for any discount promo codes. Don’t forget to be wary of any deals that are too good to be true. The Internet is full of scams, use your street smarts when searching for any online deals.
ROMNEY TAX RECORDS
Presidential candidate’s tax records have become a big issue during this election. The issue has become such a big deal that “someone” decided to take matters into their own hands and illegally obtain tax records. It has not been substantiated but there are reports that the secret service is investigating the possibility that Mitt Romney’s tax records have been obtained illegally and are being held hostage.
Thieves allegedly gained access to computer systems and records in the Pricewaterhouse Coopers offices in Franklin, Tennessee. A ransom note posted on a hacker site provided enough details that strongly suggest an event did occur.
There is no such thing as privacy any more. If information is stored “somewhere” in the cloud, someone will find it. What information is on the Internet about YOU?
