How To Prevent An iPhone ATM PIN Code Hack

So here is what  the hackers are using to find out your pin code for the credit/debit card you just used to pay for your shopping.


Very clever exploit.  As you guessed it doesn’t work on metal key pads, as the heat dissipates too fast, but most chip and pin devices are rubber/plastic so these would be vulnerable to this sort of attack.

Bridging The IT And Clinical Engineering Gap

Health Management Technology

Consider the journey of a patient who enters a hospital for treatment.  His stay will be impacted by a number of factors from the time he is admitted to the time he is discharged.  Key among those, as the patient works his way through treatment, is how quickly his information, such as waveforms, test results and medications, is logged, processed and shared. In this regard, the burgeoning use of mobile and other network devices has become an enabler, as it enables faster information flow, quicker decision-making and ultimately better patient care. However, these same technologies can also present significant challenges for healthcare providers, especially when coupled with complex and often changing regulatory requirements.

The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) culture has exploded.  A survey conducted last year by Epocrates, a medical application developer, found that 86 percent of clinicians are using their smartphones for professional activities, and 53 percent of those clinicians are also using tablets.  These devices require wireless networks to support the applications physicians rely on.  While many healthcare providers have recognized this trend and allow their clinicians to use mobile devices, fewer are engaged in regulating use. According to a recent Healthcare Information & Management Systems Society (HIMSS) survey, 83 percent of providers report that their physicians use mobile technology to provide patient care, but only 59 percent have a policy in place that regulates the use of these devices and outlines a mobile strategy.

The Best Of Times

Part One

The Best Of Times is a memorable look back at the 1950′s and 1960′s and should be entertaining to watch for anyone that grew up in that era. It was a little before my time but I still enjoy the music and looking at the muscle cars as I’ve always had a thing for the oldies since I was a kid. If you liked this be sure you watch all three.

Part Two

The Best Of Times Part Two is a memorable look back at the 1950′s and should be entertaining to watch for anyone that grew up in the 1950′s. I’m not a music expert but I’m pretty sure some of the songs featured are from the 1960′s. Still, if you like Rock and Roll Oldies I think you’ll enjoy this video. If you liked this be sure you watch all three.

Part Three

The Best Of Times Part Three is another great look back at the 1950′s and 1960′s and should bring back fond memories for anyone that grew up in the 1950′s. It was a little before my time but I still found it fun and entertaining to watch. If you liked this be sure you watch all three.
