March App Of The Month: Cogi

Cogi is an Android version of the iPhone app Interviewy but has a couple more cool features. It is an easy-to-use, free note taking and voice recording app that allows you to capture important parts of meetings, lectures and conversations. You can augment the important voice notes with images, text and tags to completely capture the key parts of a meeting or conversation.

Another Reminder Of Why You Can’t Use Home Routers In Your Business

This past Christmas, a hacker reportedly stumbled upon a back door to Linksys and Netgear DSL modems that allow an attacker to reset the router’s configuration and gain Admin access. Not good!

Some routers have this “back door” open to the local computer network while others are open to the Internet side of things, opening up users of these devices to remote Internet attacks.

Christmas In July – Operation Christmas Child

As most of you know, each year we collect small items to pack shoe boxes that are sent to children all over the world thru Operation Christmas Child!  This year, to get things going, we are holding a Christmas in July to start gathering these gifts.  Last year we donated 13 boxes, each containing 18-30 items for girls and boys ages 2-14.

We will pack everything according to age and gender, wrap each box in Charlie Brown wrapping paper, and prepare for “Drop Off” during the week of November 18-25th.

App of the Month: iWitness

   iWitness is one of those must have apps that you need for personal safety.  iWitness should be one item in your overall plan to keep safe. It will not prevent bad events, but it could actually save your life.

The way it works is you 'arm' the app before you enter a 'potentially threatening environment'.  For example, if you are having to walk to your car late at night, you would arm the app before you walk out the door.
