This may just be another flash mob video or is it? Flash mob videos all remind  me of  a simple message while entertaining me. There will always be certain things in life you need others people help to achieve. What are you trying to accomplish all alone, that really needs the help of a team?

You & Your Childs Smartphone Pics Might Be Putting Your Privacy At Risk

Please share this with your kids, family & friends.

If you or your child take pictures with a smart phone, iPod, tablet and post them online. You may be be giving away your photos exact location to anyone online who wants to locate the exact GPS coordinates within a few meters; your home, school, etc. Yes it is very scary. There is no reason to give bad people access to your location or that of your children.

Side note: My mom likes to forward me all types of crazy emails. Did you see this crazy Internet one warning you? That one about emergency cellphone battery life?  More often than not, I head over to www.snopes.com to see if it is a fake viral email. Sorry Mom, but you have sent me a few duds over the years. This time though she sent me something that I think that anyone who takes pictures with their phone or have kids who take pictures with iPods, smart-phone, or even iPads/tablets NEEDS to not only see.. but act on immediately. Kudos Mom and thanks for sharing.

Watch this video.

It is a couple years old, so isn’t new news, but has racked up over 10 Million views. Below the video I will give a resource ‘How To Post’ on how easy it is to ensure your iPhone, iPad & iPod phone pictures DO NOT contain any embedded location data.

The small instructions given at the end of the video are not up to date. Here is how to turn off Geo-Location data for the iPhone and other apple devices. All other smart phones would have similar setting as well; just consult Google and you should be good to go.

Here is a post I did  for changing privacy settings on Apple iPhone, iPod & iPad: How To Shut OFF Your Geo-location for your iPhone, iPad & iPod to Protect Your Privacy

Hope this has helped you or someone you know.

Throw Away Your Paper Receipts

I try to always share truly useful technology and apps when I find, test, and discover they help save me time or solve a problem.

In doing my taxes this past year, I was able to NOT have to pull my gas receipts out of a shoebox and was easily able to tally up my expenses for my accountant faster than I ever have before.

Time Saved: Approximately 2-3 hours

As an experiment, I started taking pictures of my gas receipts with an app called OneReceipt. Which allowed me to tag the picture “GAS” and after each fill up simply throw away my receipt and forget about it. It also works on any other receipts as well. Their technology actually pulls the #’s off the receipt and stores them securely in the cloud. It also can analyze your spending and a few other things I haven’t tried yet :)

When it came time to do my taxes this spring. I logged in to their site clicked on the tag ‘GAS’ and voilà… done! All my gas expenditures exported as a PDF with a TOTAL. No calculator or eye straining required!!!
