A fast progressing thing like technology must have its secrets, right? Today we are going to spill some. Do you know any secrets about technology? Do you believe in them? Do you think technology is dangerous? Why do you think there are secrets around it anyway?
How incognito are you
We all used Ctrl + Shift + N at least once. I usually use it when I am not on my computer and I have to log in my e-mail and I don’t want Gmail to remember me or I simply don’t have the time to erase the user after I am done.
But did you know that Incognito mode does absolutely nothing! True, your searches don’t show in your History tab but your IP address is still visible to everyone. So if you are trying to do something in Incognito mode, thinking that nobody can see what you are doing, you might think again.
How much do you trust uncle Google
Most of us use Google as our search engine and we have Google Play, Google Maps, Gmail. They even bought YouTube! So every time you accept their policies and you let Google manage your pictures or accounts, you give them the access to all your data. If you just turn your location on on your phone, they immediately know where you are.
Google is simply not on your side. If you were ought to do something, Google could simply give them your information and they would find you immediately.
Hackers are after you
Have you ever got the alert that someone wanted to hack your e-mail of Facebook? Not only is that easier than ever (especially for a skilled hacker) but sometimes sites themselves will want to access your account but you will think that it was someone else.
What do you know about monitoring
Do you work in an office? Or do you work from your computer in any way? Did you know that there is a way for your boss or someone in your vicinity to log on to your server or Wi-Fi network and can see everything you are doing on your computer and when you’re not watching they can even snoop around.
Just 18 years ago Nokia released their famous indestructible phone and became one of the top competitors in the phone industry. Now, we have so many phone-making companies that we don’t know which one to choose. Technology boomed in the last 25 years. In 2007 Motorola announced their first smartphone, which was a little more than 10 years ago and look at our phones now.
Technology is progressing every day more and it is even taking over our jobs. How long before it takes over our lives completely? We already rely highly on it. What do you think, how far is technology going to go? Here are some predictions:
Robots won’t be just a movie “thing”
If you follow technology news just a bit, you know that every developed country is in a race for creating the most functioned robot and put in on the market. While many believe that the age of robotics will ruin the human race, others think it will help us enormously when it comes to our day to day life.
Privacy is becoming an issue
Lately, people aren’t happy with the privacy policies every company and app is swearing they have. Every time we download something or we want to install something we have to give access to our personal information, pictures, contacts, etc.
Have you ever wondered why that is? Do they really need all of that or is it just a scam?
The rumors that there is a camera in every corner are already out there. What will happen to our data as technology goes further and they get more and more access to our information?
What is the real world
We have all heard about VR before and by the way it’s progressing VR could become people’s real world. There has already been talk about people getting lost in it and confusing what is real and what is not. It’s just a matter of time they create a VR where you won’t have to take it off; what will happen to us then?
Of course this has to be one of the posts on my blog. Every year you have so many events and technology-related conventions that it would just be a shame if we wouldn’t attend them. So if you’re a tech-freak like me and you want to know more about technology or the future it’s promising, make sure you check out the events below and write down the dates, because adventure is coming your way!
1. Network of the Future
Because it is May already and because I know you will be excited to attend as many events as possible I decided to pick one that I think is the most useful one in June 2018. The conference will be in Plano, Texas and it’s a three day trip for getting all the knowledge about different infrastructure that you would need, no matter what industry you’re a part of and no matter what’s your business about. If you want to know the latest things you need for your market, this is the right conference for you.
2. Artificial Intelligence
Don’t let me get started on this one! This is a must for all technology enthusiasts and the one I am most excited for. We will all have to wait a bit for this one, since it’s in September, but I promise it will be worth your while. The conference lasts 2 days in San Francisco and it will spill all the secrets about AI. You will be able to meet developers, scientist and innovators and together you will find out more about AI than ever before! If you want a robot in your home soon, you mustn’t miss this one!
3. Cybersecurity Conference
A month after AI conference there is one in Montreat College’s Center and from the three it’s the most serious one. As we know cyberbullying is becoming bigger every year and the awareness is not even close to protecting its victims. The speakers will help you understand cyberbullying and teach you how to properly protect yourself from it.
