Geotagging Dangers

“Tag you’re it!” is a phrase I hear quite often as my children play the game of “tag” with each other and their friends at a park or backyard.  But I don’t want to see it on a Facebook page, as a Tweet on Twitter or on a website.  The latest technology on smartphones like the Blackberry, Android and iPhone systems, as well as many digital cameras, do just that.  They say “tag you’re it” and show just where “it” is, by placing the longitude and latitude of your position within the photo when you take a picture.

Just because you don’t see it on the photograph doesn’t mean that the geotag isn’t there.  Don’t’ think that you would have to turn on the technology for it to embed geotags on your photographs either.  In fact, it’s just the opposite. Continue reading Geotagging Dangers

If you want to download Dragon naturally Speaking, you can do that through the link above. One thing to consider is why you might want to download this program.

There are many reasons, but one that comes to mind right away (of course) is security. Let’s say that someone has installed a keylogging program on your computer, without you knowing about it. Any time you type anything on your keyboard, your keystrokes will be recorded. However, with Dragon Naturally Speaking, once you’ve downloaded the program and trained it to understand your voice, you won’t actually be typing anything on your keyboard. As a result, your “keystrokes” won’t be possible to record.

Dragon Naturally Speaking also has many other benefits. When you download the program, you’ll see that it’s kind of like having a personal assistant sitting in your computer and just waiting for your next command. All you have to do is say what you want.

Many people find it much faster to speak than to type. If this is you, you will find that Dragon Naturally Speaking will help a lot when you’re trying to create Word Documents. However, more than that, you’ll find that you can control your computer nearly 100% just by saying what you want. Launching applications, opening files, creating spreadsheets, and even downloading email or programs can be done just by talking.

Lots of people who use their computers a lot also encounter problems with repetitive stress injuries (RSI). This comes from trying to do the same thing too many times (type on a keyboard or move a mouse. Controlling your PC in a hands-free way is really a great way to get things done, and protect your health and well-being. You can even take a digital voice recorder with you as you go about your daily activities, and then let download your audio recordings to Dragon Naturally Speaking when you get back to your computer.

When you download Dragon Naturally Speaking to your computer, you’ll see that, just by talking to your computer, you’ll experience a great level of freedom, security, and helpful protection of your physical health as well.

We’re big fans of Dragon Naturally Speaking, and think you will be as well, once you download this program.

Paperport was originally a scan soft program, but today is part of the Nuance suite of products.

Of course, you can still access information about Paperport by looking for it under the Scan soft name. Through the trial it’s easy to see why Paperport has continued to be a favorite among users.

It is a strong program which gives you a platform-free way to securely manage documents on your local computer and make them easy to share. With our trial, when we downloaded the most recent version of PaperPort Professional, we found it to be a great tool for managing lots of different types of information. It worked to provide easy access to files on the local PC, and also functioned extremely well with both document archiving and sharing across a network.

The Paperport application worked well with existing programs we had running, and worked well on the computers we use. Additionally, PaperPort had a strong and simple integration into Microsoft Windows.

We found it easy to download the program and install it.  And during our trial of Paperport we saw that it was a straightforward integration of scanning and creation of PDFs. Paperport also adds some nice document management functions to the existing options with the folders and files structures in Microsoft Windows.

We didn’t have to do anything additional as far as installation, adding more software, or adding other hardware, in order to make Paperport work well.

Check Washing Scams: How Check Washing Works – An Overview

You might think that with all of the technology that identity thieves have today that they would not even bother with a method called check washing. And that is exactly what they want you to believe.

Check washing or bleaching is a practice where identity thieves erase the ball point ink that is written on checks and insert their own name and amount.

I was reminded of this practice just the other day when I was shopping for some new pens. On a package of clickable pens was written “helps prevent check fraud”. At first you might think this is just a marketing ploy to scare people into buying these pens over some that do not prevent check fraud, but this crime is a real problem.

How do I know? I actually did a little experiment and tried to erase the ink from some spare checks that I had lying around.

I am not going to say what household chemical worked best because it is not the point of this article to teach how to wash checks but rather how to prevent it from happening to you. But what I did notice that the checks that had ball point pen blue ink on them were very easy to erase. The black ink was a little harder to erase and left a little trace of ink behind. But the Uniball pens I bought that were meant to “help prevent check fraud” actually faired the best. The ink on these checks only faded a little and could never be used by an identity thief.

So how do you protect yourself against check washing and check fraud?

Here are a few simple tips.

First of all, try to avoid using checks altogether. Most people don’t like using checks anymore because they are a hassle, but they can also be a security risk. Now, that being said, there are times you absolutely must use a check. In those cases use a gel pen like the Pilot G2 or the Uniball gel pen that I used. Gel pens allow the ink to sink into the fiber of the paper and are virtually impossible to erase.

When you pay your bills every month, drop the checks off at the post office rather than mailing them out from your mailbox. Most instances of check fraud happen because of stolen mail, and this helps to minimize the risk. You can also get a security mailbox or locking mailbox which only allows mail to go in, and requires a lock to be opened in order to get mail out.

Protecting your financial assets is part of protecting your identity, so make sure you are taking the proper precautions to avoid check fraud and keep it from happening to you.

An identity theft protection service should also be an option for you to consider. You can check out more helpful tips on guarding your identity at www.SafeIdentityProtection.com.

My review of Dragon Naturally Speaking

Having used Dragon Naturally Speaking off and on since 2006, I’ve found this program to be really great. I try to review each new version as it comes out to make sure I’m getting the best software possible. I really like that each time I go to review a new version of Dragon Naturally Speaking, it picks up my user files from the previous version, so that I don’t have to re-train the software each time.

Dragon Naturally Speaking is compatible with a host of microphones and headsets. You can see them on Dragon’s site and get an idea of how accurate they’ve been shown to be. Continue reading Dragon Naturally Speaking Review

Dragon Dicatate Review

Dragon Dicatate is the mis-spelling or mis-typing of the words “Dragon Dictate”.

However, since there are some people who mis-type this, we’ll just write this review for the people who type in Dragon Dicatate.

So, if you’re going to use Dragon Dictate, you should know that it’s the same program (more or less) as MacSpeech.

DragonDicatate lets you tell your Mac what you want it to do, or have text in a word processing program, just by speaking into a microphone.

They say that this method of recording voice to text is up to three times faster than typing.

What’s really fun is that you can use most Mac applications just by telling Dragon Dicatate what you want done.

Unlike many programs adapted from PC, Dragon Dicatate is built from the beginning. A review was undertaken of business practices and ideas by programmers specializing in Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and Dragon Dicatate was the result of their work brought to fruition.

Having it built from the beginning by Mac programmers ensures that Dragon Dicatate works right from the beginning, and doesn’t deal with the ridiculous Mac/PC issues.

(So annoying when you just want to accomplish something.)

And what can Dragon Dicatate help you accomplish?

Anything really. Some things people seem to like to use DragonDicatate for, on a somewhat frequent basis, include:
• Reports
• Reviewing Email
• Articles
• Books
• Reviewing/Revising Research notes
• Online content

Anything really.

One other nice thing about Dragon Dicatate (as compared with earlier versions of MacSpeech even or Dragon Naturally Speaking), is that Dragon Dicatate is ACCURATE.

There are hundreds of examples where people show themselves talking and show how well Dragon Dicatate works. As the people from Dragon Dicatate say, it’s “Simply Smarter Speech Recognition for the Mac.”
