How to detect if your child is misusing the cell phone
Most parents often look for ideas on how to keep their kids from spending a lot of their time on cell phones. Kids seem to have hooked on their cell phones like they were hooked on television earlier. Cell phones have become so much in demand that it is now become a basic necessity for everyone including kids. Kids are getting more and more addicted to cell phone especially with the invention of smart phones with advanced features like online chatting, face book, twitter, etc.
How will you know when your kid’s cell phone usage goes far beyond your expectation? Well, it is quite a difficult question to answer for parents. Kids have access to various provisions on their cell phone. Some of the features of smart phones include, calling, text messaging, Internet, instant messaging services, access to social networking sites, sending and receiving emails, camera, voice recorder, and so on. Considering the fact that teenagers get addicted to cell phones, parents should be able to detect the bad activities performed through cell phones.
As a responsible parent you have every right to stop your child from using the cell phone. You may take away the cell phone but you need to find out the kind of activities that your kid is performing with the help of the cell phone. Well, you cannot stop your kid until and unless you have full proof evidences about the cell phone activities. You can physically check your kid’s cell phone to figure out what is going on. But, if your child ever sees you checking on his or her phone then they he may become alert, and start deleting all the details from the cell phone so that he or she is not caught. Also, it is not practically possible to check the cell phone of your kid every now and then. Well, the only best option left is to consider Cell Phone Spy software.
Cell Phone Spy software, once installed on your kid’s cell phone, tracks all the activities effectively. The cell phone spying application works discreetly and your kid will not get even an iota of hint that his cell phone is being monitored. This is the main advantage of installing the software onto the cell phone. Installation takes place within few minutes, and monitoring the activities is very simple. All you need to do is log into your personal profile with the user name and password and you are ready to monitor everything. Some of the activities that can be tracked though cell phone spy software includes call logs, email logs, web history, location history, incoming and outgoing text messages with full contents, photos and videos taken from the cell phone, and many more.
In addition to so many features, the most amazing feature is that you can retrieve text messages even when they are deleted from the cell phone by your child. Thus, by installing the software, you will get a clear picture about your kid’s intention. You will get full proof evidence that can either ease your mind or shock you. Hence, monitoring teens at an early stage becomes highly essential to avoid unwanted complications.
The Internet, and by extension the smartphone, is an increasingly important part of our society. To use an analogy that I suspect the target audience of the above piece would appreciate, Pandora’s Box has been opened. The Internet offers two things that those who seek to control their world have a difficult time with: information and expression. Some choose to court this trend, to boldly go into a world where the questions and answers are ever more difficult, and some choose to clamp down and assert their will, battling the inevitable. We chose to publish this piece because it represents, in stark clarity, the fear some have of the implications of the technology we write about on this blog. What better way than through the concern for a child’s well-being to illuminate the paranoia with which the concerned look at the unknown?
Just like I would suggest that a better way to approach your child’s cell phone usage is to teach him or her to be a responsible person — rather than spying on the child, breaching what is one of our more sacred trusts, that between a parent and child — I would suggest that in all matters of technology, the human element must be addressed before the technology is condemned. What are we so afraid of if we are given freedom? Ourselves, naturally. And maybe, if we are looking for something to control, it is first to ourselves that we should look.

Oh running, who doesn’t love it?! Well actually, lots of people despise it. As a marathon runner, of course I enjoy it, but for others it can be a pain in the you-know-what. This is why most people rely on gym equipment to get their fairshare of cardio in for the day. Treadmills, bikes and the elliptical get the job done, however, wouldn’t it be awesome if we could have a more intense workout, combining all these? Of course it would be, which is why ElliptiGO was created!
The ideal part about using this is that you can be outside, enjoying the fresh air and actually be active compared to stationary equipment. Sure, you may receive some strange looks and some pointed fingers wondering what exactly it is you are using, but once you get a rockin’ bod, they will understand. This also removes the impact running has on your feet and legs and is perfect for runners who were recently injured and want to get back outside and workout, minus the pain of their feet pounding on the pavement.
The design of the ElliptiGO helps give you results, combining a full body workout, and is the perfect cross-training companion to choose. This device does come with a hefty price tag and could leave you eating ramen noodles for a few weeks, but at least you’ll be burning off carbs once you hop on it!

Some humor from our good friends at PrimeSense.
“…language can also corrupt thought.”
This quote could very easily be a part of our Monday Jumpstart series with how well it rings true for those of us who write in the digital space. Friend of the blog and frequent contributor Josh Mortensen uses the quote to open a blog post for his own digital home GlibHippo, a post about language we thoroughly enjoy.
Here is an excerpt:
“Two words never used in advertising or media before the rise on the Web:performance and optimize. Not Ogilvy nor Burnett nor Draper ever uttered them. Apple’s 1984, The Man in the Hathaway Shirt, Clairol’s Does she … or doesn’t she?, VW’s Think Small – none of them had their performance optimized. Brand advertising is about story telling, narrative if you prefer academic sounding jargon, not about tuning.
But in online advertising we have a stunted vocabulary. It is a language devised by engineers who have only a binary understanding of what advertising can or should do. And it is confusing. We use the language of response marketing universally to discuss both tactical and brand. But the two are mutually exclusive. Orwell would recognize this immediately. Language shapes our sense of reality.”
Form is function and language is meaning. Read the rest of Josh’s great blog post here.

I always see people on Segway tours around Boston, riding and pointing at all the historic monuments, and I secretly want to join in. Even mall cops have segways while patrolling the perimeter. I admit, I thought the whole idea of these segways was a bit silly, aimed toward the lazy, and don’t really see the point in riding one, but hey, that’s just me.
However, when I saw this type of segway, it just made me want to race someone around a building and be a kid again! Honda stated this week they are in the midst of creating a rear (a/k/a butt-steered) segway, called “Uni-Cub.” Seems legit. It looks like a stool, but has a place for your feet to rest. Simply turn this fun little engine on and let your glute do the work. Although it’s made to go about as fast as an average speed of walking and at a height where you are still eye-level with people who are using their feet, my brain just automatically thinks of an office race using these. I think I’ll just stick to walking though, unless I break my ankle (knock on wood), then this better be in my Christmas stocking waiting for me.
