As I have mentioned in my emailed techtips to some of you before I love using Google Voice and most of Google’s other applications (primarily Gmail). I really like Google Voice for the ability to ‘transcribe’ my messages.
This feature also makes for a great ‘voice note taking’ application, while on the road or away from a system.
Mark Stout has put together a newer step by step on precisely how to use Goolge voice for note transcription in a little easier fashion than I previously mentioned and it is definitely worth checking out.
Science vs idiotic superstition is obviously one of my running themes here.
So in line with that here is comedian Dara O’Briain setting the record straight about the public understanding of science.

Call For Informants: If You Oppose Obamacare, Even in ‘Casual Conversation,’ the White House Wants to Know About It!
If you see anybody publicly opposing President Obama’s plan to implement a government-centric overhaul of the health care system, the White House wants you to report that person (or persons) ASAP.
From the White House website:
[There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often tra More..vel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Emphasis added. Of course, as we’ve seen in the health care debate to date, the term “disinformation” is used by the Obama White House as a catchall to describe any opposition to the President’s push for single-payer, government-run health care — meaning the White House wants to be informed of any forwarded emails or blog posts or any “casual conversations” that could be taken as opposition to their health care overhaul plan.
You’ll have to excuse me, I need to go get more ammo now.
Cell phones are becoming more and more like Operating Systems and being used more and more for tasks that used to be done on desktops – like banking etc..
As functionality increases, and the use of those new functions increases, so will the effort put into ‘hacking/cracking’ these systems.
MS Windows has been the target of most hackers in the past because of the huge percentage of install base it had and the general lack of computer safety sophistication of the average MS Windows users.
But, as OSX and Linux gain ground on the desktop, server and more importantly the ‘mobile’ space, so too will the efforts to exploit them.If you have an iPhone or any ‘smart phone’ for that matter please read the accompanying articles.
