Smart-TV-Virus

Q: please help me to solve a debate. I have to say, my smart TV, it can get a little bit of malware and viruses. My friend tells me that I’m a dope. Who is right? A six-pack is riding on your answer.

A: the Smart Tv’s have been flat since they were first released, and for good reason. These devices have reportedly been sent to the reports in the personal view back to the details of the business, which means that the TV is watching … is watching you.

Kids and Social Media Woes

Q: Have you heard about an app called Yolo, that teens are secretly using?

A: I’ve heard of Yolo, and like millions of other parents, I am deeply concerned. Snapchat is an awkward app to be in the hands of children, and the Yolo connect, and have the children send each other comments and photos anonymously. While privacy is important, this type of anonymous communication that can lead to cyber-bullying, predatory behavior, and other destructive activities, and that many of the adolescents are not equipped to deal with.

An Emergency Phone In The Settings

Q: Is there a setting on my parents ‘ phones that I can use, so that the emergency services will be able to access their medical information? They are getting older all the time, and I’m afraid of.

A: a Lot of people with chronic medical conditions to wear a medical bracelet, and a small piece of metal, it could easily save someone’s life, even after the first emergency responders to arrive. Not surprisingly, a smart phone can do, you can do better: You can set your phone to certain allergies and conditions without unlocking your screen.

Bitcoin for Facebook?

Q: I’ve heard that Facebook is getting into the cryptocurrency business? What does that mean?

A: If you know anything about cryptocurrency, you probably think of Bitcoin, a monetary system that is only available online. Bitcoin has had a lot of headlines over the years for its mere existence, but also for web-savvy people have made, and lost, in a great deal of money. However, what Facebook is doing, it’s a new cryptocurrency called the Scale, it will appeal to the masses, not just numerous investors. Facebook has become heavily involved in popular banking due to the association with Paypal, as well as the ability to instantly send money via the Messenger. This cryptocurrency was probably inevitable, and while I don’t personally invest a dime, and I won’t blame anyone who is curious about it.
