Daily Prompt: The Next Big Thing

What will the next must-have technological innovation be? Jetpacks? Hoverboards? Wind-powered calculators?

The next big tech innovation will be in the area of privacy related technologies. Today our information is on platforms from our phone, the pc or mac, tablets, social media sites, in the cloud, and on removable media just to name a few.

Have you ever lost a usb drive? Wouldn’t it be comforting to know the data on it would destruct if an unauthorized user tried to access it. Perhaps this would come from an OS that extends the concept of trusted devices to include portable drive authentication.

Ever lose your cell phone? These days with smartphones, it’s not just your contact list that is out there. From pictures or videos you took, hopefully none are too embarrassing, to mobile payment apps that are just arriving. Some venue operators now have apps that allow virtual tickets, instead of having to carry a paper ticket. So the next time you lose your smart phone, who are you going to call besides you cell company?

If you follow the technews, you may have read about cloud storage providers and the security holes that have been found. One of the companies, had a flaw that allowed anyone with a link to a file, to have access to your cloud, by simply shortening the link that you sent them. Thankfully that one is no longer an issue.

Now some of you use Apple products such as the IPad, and are saying that’s only applicable to pc’s, well, want to see how a fridge magnet will gain access to your documents, under the right circumstances? Check this video out: Ipad Pin code Dana is an IT professional who pulls no punches, and his crack the cred series will help you learn a little more about security.

So the next big thing should be ways to secure our information, pictures etc. So leave a comment about your view on the topic, and who knows we might actually get someone working on it a little faster.

  5. Totally agree with the privacy issue – with Google Glass, things are just getting scarier… But sometimes I wonder, could it be that the world gets fed up of so much technology, that we actually start throwing it away? I know I would!

  6. Agreed. Our lives are way to public nowadays and sometime it’s not even from our own doing

  7. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
