Sticky Notes: Fantastic App

Since time immemorial, it is the usual practice that people use to chronicle their day to day experience in the form of dairy. Of late, the habbit of writing in long hand has diminished. Nevertheless, the modern trend is that one will either resort to mobile phone or a computer to record the day to day incidence, either through the medium of social media domains like the Facebook or a blog. Another trend is that people resort to install stick notes software on their workstations or laptops to jot down the messages they would want to express. They also make a note of the day do day events in the form of stick message and pin the yellow piece of paper on the computer for ready reference.

Advantages of Sticky Notes

The key advantages of stick notes are that one can keep it like a reminder to see it everytime when one works, besides the fact that one can note down anything instantly without opeing any application. What is more, of late, sticky notes can be synched with cloud networking apps including Dropbox, Googledrive and Onedrive. Furthermore, it comes with differnt style and colour for one’s comfort. I use Efficient Sticky Notes, which is a fantastic app. It is far better than Evernote and other Sticky Notes that are available in the marketplace. Needless to mention, it is safe and secure, besides the fact that it comes with password protection. The best part is that one can have internet connection at any place by carrying it in a flash drive!

Suffice it to say that it comes with a recycle bin option in case one deletes it accidently, one can retreive it from there. Similarly, it is easy to search one’s ntes in the application in case one forgets what he/she keeps it as title. All one has to do is to search with any word one uses in the note the suggestions will pop up. It also comes with more than 30 language options. One can use it for 30 days as a free trial and can as well urchase it if one likes. For instance, I initially downloaded it as a trial verion. Subsequently, I got hooked to it. Now, I not only use it as alarm but also as a reminder and much more.

Windows have stopped sticky notes as default application these days. Initially, what I did was to download it as trial version. The software is being sold in excess of 117 countries across the globe and translated by more than 30 languages. The bottomline is owning Efficient Sticky Notes is not a bad choice! I recommend four stars out of five for this appication.

Women take fewer risks online, but take upper hand in web-smarts say a Kaspersky Lab study

To mark International Women’s Day 2014 Kaspersky Lab uncovers the reasons why women behave more safely when using the Internet. A report about sexual differences in online safety behaviour shows that males tend to take a higher frequency of risks, while the female attitude towards security promises a longer life – women live on average six years longer than men do. Studies show that lifestyle has a greater bearing on different life expectations than genes or hormones do.
Image
According to a European study, women use the Internet just as enthusiastically as men, but they do so in different ways. In cooperation between Kaspersky Lab and the University of Wuerzburg (Germany) a report about sexual differences was developed, the main findings show that men tend to search for entertainment, games and sexual content while women look for communication and interaction with friends or romantic partners.
Professor Dr Frank Schwab, media psychologist at the University of Wuerzburg said: “Twice as many men as women reported different sorts of malware attacks during the period of the study. Girls are expected to be more responsible, obedient, and sexually restrained, thus, depending on one’s gender, certain roles are performed, leading to the stereotype gender differences”. So, who has it right – does greater risk really bring greater reward?
When it comes to taking risks, women are happy to leave this to the men. Why would women put themselves in danger when there are men volunteering to take all the risks? The female way seems to be not only more secure in an online world but also more promising in terms of a long life. Also, the women’s caring characters lead to more communicative and considerate behaviour both online and off. In terms of risk taking, they seem to take the more reasonable, considered path resulting in risk avoidance and a safer way of life.
“There’s an increased risk of infection from visiting certain types of web site – including pornographic and gambling sites.  It’s not the content of these sites per se that makes them less safe, but the fact that they attract high numbers of visitors – and where there are visitors, there will be criminals.
This provides cybercriminals with a large pool of potential victims human psychology also plays into their hands where some of these sites are concerned; victims are typically less willing to complain if they get infected whilst using one of these sites, than say a banking site, or fall victim to a scam, when accessing pornographic content.”, explains David Emm, Security Researcher at Kaspersky Lab.
Safety however, remains an important topic for all, but particularly for men, who have a tendency to forget or overlook the risks. In general, anti-virus software should be installed on any device which is connected to the internet.
Kaspersky Lab is the world’s largest privately held vendor of endpoint protection solutions. The company is ranked among the world’s top four vendors of security solutions for endpoint users*. Throughout its more than 15-year history Kaspersky Lab has remained an innovator in IT security and provides effective digital security solutions for large enterprises, SMBs and consumers. Kaspersky Lab, with its holding company registered in the United Kingdom, currently operates in almost 200 countries and territories across the globe, providing protection for over 300 million users worldwide.

DIMTS launches TellTail Mobile Security App

Concerned with the increasing incidents of rapes, kidnapping and other security threats faced by the public, especially women, Delhi Integrated Multi-Modal Transit System Ltd (DIMTS) has launched the TellTail mobile app in India.
Image
According to a statement issued by DIMTS, the app, which is currently available on Android phones, can be freely downloaded from Google Play. TellTail is a security application that allows the user to be tracked using the GPS in a vehicle or the user’s phone. It also helps the individuals send alerts to their friends and family in emergency situations on the press of a button. The concerned contacts can also see the tracking information on a map.
The application has two main features. First and foremost, the main feature is that it can not only be tracked by vehicle but also others to be tracked through the GPS in the phone. What is unique about this app and makes it different from other security apps is that the user can be tracked even if she/he does not have a GPS enabled phone.  If the user is in the orange-coloured Delhi Transit (cluster) buses/ new auto rickshaws/ any other public service vehicle fitted with GPS, she/he just needs to feed in the vehicle number and the vehicle will start getting tracked.
Image
In case of a situation when the user needs immediate help, the user just needs to press the panic button in the application for two seconds and an alert will be generated and messages sent to the backend server as well as the registered contacts. If GPS/GPRS is available, the application will send exact location details to DIMTS server and the relevant contacts. However, even if the GPS/GPRS is not available, the application will send the panic alert to the contacts.
For any individual in trouble and requiring help, this application can be life saver as the victim can quietly send the help request to her family or friends by pressing the panic button without having to call anyone. Family members will be able to constantly track the movement of the victim and provide help at the earliest. The exact position from where the panic was sent will also be known so that there is no problem in help being sent at that location.
The application does not invade the privacy of the users as they can be tracked only when they wish to by switching on the TellTail app. The data from these GPS/GPRS fitted vehicles, is received every ten seconds. With this credible tracking data, the TellTail app will help in tracking the vehicle faster.
Additional Information – How the app works
–    Download from Google play and install it on your phone
–    Go to settings and update profile and register five contacts
–    To track the vehicle you are travelling in, feed in the number of the vehicle and press ‘Track by Vehicle’ button
–    To get yourself tracked through GPS of your phone, press ‘Track Me’ button
