    Not on App Store is a sticker designed to look like the typical “available on the App Store” badges from Apple. The project “Not Available on the App Store” by Caio Andrade, Rafael Ochoa, and Linn Livijn Wexell

    Simple, but a clever reminder that unplugging and disconnecting from the screen (be it laptop, tablet or smartphone) and exploring your immediate surroundings is good for everyone, especially young people.  I hope we don’t become a society where playgrounds are full of people (adults and kids) who are only interested and submersed in their tablets or smartphones instead of interacting with the larger, non-digital physical forms around them.     

    Make time to go out and play!

    Technology, and specifically cloud computing and big data, is a hot sector right now, with many big companies making huge investments and initiatives in this space.  Technology can be great for many things, but it also can lead to epic fails, such as this one.  Maybe it was easier in the old days, with actual Kodak prints in albums and frames, instead of digital Instagramed pictures on iPhones and iPads.  It’s also hard to remember different passwords for all the different websites most people use - Google/Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, etc. - and to keep changing them every 3-6 months.
This is a nicely written article about how one’s digital life got hacked and destroyed in one hour that appeared earlier this week in Wired… sad that it happened, but yes… it can happen to anyone.
