Used Copy Machines and Identity Theft

This eye-opening CBS report shows how information in copy machines built since 2002 is saved on the machine's hard drive and anyone with half-a-brain (after watching this report) can steal the information within.

Posing serious security concerns, everything from bank statements, social security numbers, mortages and even asses have been scanned by one of these babies. As you can see in the report, even police departments offload these old copiers. Some copies even get sold to foreign companies. I am sure used copier sales have skyrocketed after this report. So think twice about copying ANYTHING.

"This year marks the 50th anniversary of the good, old-fashioned copy machine. But, as Armen Keteyian reports, advanced technology has opened a dangerous hole in data security."

Mobile is a Battlefield: Android OS Gains on Apple OS

First quarter U.S. sales of smartphones using Google’s Android OS outsold Apple’s iPhone for the very first time.

While Blackberries still hold the top slot, Android OS phones (most notably Motorola’s Droid) captured 28% of unit sales in the first three months of 2010. iPhone only captures 21% (possibly diluted by the launch of the iPad). This report came from the NPD Group.

"As in the past, carrier distribution and promotion have played a crucial role in determining smartphone market share," said Ross Rubin, executive director of industry analysis for NPD, in a statement. "In order to compete with the iPhone, Verizon Wireless has expanded its buy-one-get-one offer beyond RIM devices [Blackberry] to now include all of their smartphones."

Currently, AT&T is still the only provider of the iPhone, but their exclusive contract with Apple ends in 2012.

Overall, PC World ranks Android OS in 4th place after Symbian OS (Nokia), Blackberry OS and Apple OS.
