Turn your iPad into a fire alarm when you are away from home

The iPad has really come of age over the last couple of years. When it started off it was really only promoted as a fun piece of entertainment. Then it transformed the kids game market with absolute user-friendliness for younger users. It then turned into a very useful business tool - to the point where you could virtually run your whole organization from it. Now we see the iPad as a device to safeguard your home. No, I don't mean by turning it into a virtual guard dog (though I'm sure there is an app for that.) FirstFireAlert is a 'world-first' iOS app that turns your iPad into a fire ...  More

There have been big inroads over the last couple of years in the monitoring of children's online activities. There have even been a number of apps made available where you can check what they are up to online, what they are watching (whether sex or violence) as well as who they might have contact with online.

Make sure that your photos don't end up where Weiner's did

If iDelete had been around a few years ago, former US Congressman Anthony Weiner would probably still be reasonably anonymous...and still have his job. Weiner was caught after sending an explicit picture of himself to a woman in Seattle. The picture went viral and, pretty soon, his career was in tatters. He's not the only person who was been caught with their pants down when sending 'sensitive' pictures to 'friends.' A few months back saw the introduction of an app called Snapchat that went some way to solving the problem by having a time-sensitive self destruct option when sending racy ...  More

An intercom and buzzer system fit for a KIng

If you could choose your own sound for your apartment or house buzzer I wonder what you might choose? Personally, I'd go for something like Lionel Ritchie's "Hello" or maybe Anita Ward's "Ring My Bell" but the point is, when the rest of your place is immaculate and built to your specifications,  it would be nice to have a buzzer system that you want rather than the one that comes with your apartment when you take possession of the keys. Ringo is a new phone and security application that not only personalizes your buzzer system but then adds value by giving you multiple intercom codes ...  More

Monetize and modernise your CAPTCHA's

I have to tell you that I hate those warped numbers and letters that websites often put on their page to verify that you are a human and not a robot. Those jumbled characters are known as CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) and you have to admire them in one way because they are a good security device. However, the amount of time I read them wrongly makes it a problem. Minteye is an app for marketers and advertisers that has come up with what appears to be a more sensible approach by straightening the jumbled characters into something ...  More
