WWTO July 2014: Bionik Laboratories ARKE Exoskeleton, eSight, SENSIMAT & Lynxio


If you’re in Toronto tomorrow, check out the We Are Wearables event. The theme of tomorrow’s meetup will be the potential of wearable technology to augment our physical capabilities. The companies presenting include Bionik Laboratories (The ARKE Exoskeleton), eSight Eyewear, SENSIMAT, Lynxio and Sensassure.

I wonder if any of these companies will be competing in the 2016 Cybathlon. The Swiss competition will have exoskeleton, powered wheelchair and even brain interface races.

Check out this Meetup link for more details on WWTO tomorrow.

Five Tip Friday – BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.1 Browser Tips


Whether you’re new or experienced, here are five must know BlackBerry 10 Browser tips :D

Change your default search engineFTF-1021-BrowserFTF-1021-Browser

Depending on what you search for, you may need to change your default search engine. To do this while using a BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps.

  1. Open the browser and enter a search term
  2. After an icon that represents the default search engine appears in the upper-right corner, tap this icon, and from the drop-down list, click your desired search engine

Add a new search engine

Building on the previous tip, use the following steps to add a new search engine such as Wikipedia, this blog, or a variety of other websites when you use the BlackBerry 10 Browser.

After you finish, you can choose the new search engine whenever you perform a search. However, some websites may not support this feature, which explains why you may not see this option after you complete these steps.

  1. Open a website with the search engine you want to add
  2. Perform a search using the website’s search field
  3. Tap FTF-1021-Cal-3dotFTF-1021-Cal-3dot followed by Add Search
  4. After a dialog box appears with the search engine details, tap Add

Save a webpage

You can save a webpage in HTML format so that you can access the webpage when you’re offline, or send the webpage as an attachment.

  1. On a webpage, tap FTF-1021-Cal-3dotFTF-1021-Cal-3dot  FTF1021-Browser-SavePageFTF1021-Browser-SavePage Save Page
  2. Choose the location where you want to save the webpage

To view a webpage you saved later, open File Manager, find the folder where you saved the webpage, and then tap the HTML file. You can also view previously saved pages within the browser; tap followed by Downloads.

Turn on Desktop mode

Depending on what websites you visit, you may want to turn on Desktop Mode so your browser loads the desktop version of a website instead of the mobile version.

Be mindful of this setting though, because until you turn it off every website you visit will display the desktop version.

  1. Open the browser, and then tap FTF-1021-Cal-3dotFTF-1021-Cal-3dot
  2. Tap Settings followed by Developer Tools
  3. Set the Desktop Mode switch to On

Private Browsing

This option prevents the browser on your smartphone from storing any information whenever it is enabled—for example, your history, cached files, cookies, and so on. When you turn off Private Browsing, any browsing information created while this option was enabled is removed from your smartphone.

  1. Open the browser, and then tap FTF-1021-Cal-3dotFTF-1021-Cal-3dot followed by Settings
  2. Tap Privacy and Security, and then set the Private Browsing switch to On

Privacy Concerns Have Some Mobile Workers Asking for Their BlackBerrys Back


image credit: edans

Ask any corporate mobile phone administrator that has to manage a bunch of different iPhone and Android devices purchased by employees and they will almost certainly tell you the BYOD policies are for the birds.

Different OEMs, different operating systems, having to push apps through Apple, and securing these devices pose numerous challenges for IT.  Android, iOS, and, Windows Phone are really designed to allow end users to have complete control, and, it often takes third party Mobile Device Management software along with their unique challenges and issues to enforce corporate policy on these devices.

The allure of increased productivity subsidized by employees buying their own devices often means that phone administrators simply have to “figure it out”.  The question, however, as employees become more savvy with their smartphones, are they starting to figure out that bringing your own phone to work is not necessarily as good a deal for them as they initially thought.

Chances are that when you connect your personal phone to your company’s network a security policy is pushed down to your phone.  These security policies can prevent you from installing apps, lock out functionality such as SMS on the phone, logging,all communications regardless of if it is business oriented or private, and and even tracking your whereabouts via GPS.

Corporate IT policies on employee’s personal smartphones are designed with the privacy of the company, not the end use in mind, and, these privacy concerns, or lack there of, have a lot of mobile workers asking for their BlackBerry devices back.
