    Two step verification of your email accounts via mobile phone- how helpful is it? 

    The two step authentication process of user accounts are becoming quite popular in the web world since the introduction of threats of various type of account hacks like email, social networking etc.

    But is it really safe? Well as long as you are the only person who has the access to your mobile phone it’s probably safe. Some backup codes are also provided by the website companies as backup in case you loose your mobile phone. This codes must be hidden in a secret place in web or paper and also you should remember where you are hiding them.

    This is two step authentication might be of worth for email accounts but probably of not much use when using blogs, because they can dull your user experience when you have to make any changes in your user setting or you want to sign in from another device. Every time you need your mobile phone for making very minute changes in your blog. If you have multiple SIM cards and have to travel a lot you might feel pathetically bored if your SIM card is in bag or in another phone which is not there readily available at your phone.

    So in my opinion choose a two step authentication based on your purpose and how much secrecy do you want to ascertain toy your user accounts.

    Well here is a suggestion from my end, which you may think of trying if find it ok. Get a new email id, don’t share it with any one, use it only for registering your various email, social networking, blogging accounts, and keep strong password for all your accounts. If you wish you may use two step authentication for this new email id. As long as this new email id is safe probably all accounts related to it will be safe because all password recoveries will be through that new email id.

    Hope this above clip of experience of the author helps you to decide better if to choose two step authentications via mobile or not.

    Wish you a safe and nice browsing experience!

    Does everyone switch off their mobile phones during flight take-offs? 

    In the recent times airline industries have expanded across the globe and even in economically weaker nations. One thing that concerns many or most flyers across the globe is the safety during the flight. The on-board safety instruction which we are discussing here is about switching-off of electronic devices during take-off and landing.

    Once electronic devices like mobile phones and laptops were not allowed to be carried with the passengers on-board and passengers had to put it in the luggage section. However, in the recent time most of the airlines allow to carry them with the passengers, however these devices have to switched off before take-off. Here is where the problem lies, some of the passengers are reluctant to follow the instruction of the crew and keep their mobile devices on during the entire duration of flight. Since these passengers might have completed their previous journeys safely without switching of their electronic devices, they might take the on-board crew’s instruction lightly. This author too found some of the passengers attempting to fool the on-board aircraft crew by just switching of the light of their mobile phone instead of switching it off totally, as it’s not possible for the crew to check each and every person’s mobile phone to see if it is really switched off or not.

    Dystextia and stroke 

    Have you ever heard of a word called ‘dystextia’ (no not dyslexia)? Well if you are a person from medical background, more likely you have heard of it. Dystextia is something like when garbled type text is messaged by someone.

    Many a times I type such garbled messages while sending sms from mobile; typing in a mobile is worst type of texting I know (although not aware of new cutting edge smartphone’s texting experiences, mine is the old type phone in which to type the letter ‘c’ I need to press the ‘abc’ marked button thrice). Although I do make the error while typing before sending to the recipient I always try correcting it as much as possible and hence the receiver of my message probably don’t find lot of major mistakes. Here begins the story, suppose I start sending garbled text messages to my friend from tomorrow and my friend have already read this post he will definitely worry about me and might insist me seeing a doctor. Why? Because recent studies show that people who send garbled incoherent messages might already had a stroke.

    Stroke affects different parts of our brain and symptoms produced based on the site affected in brain. So after having a stroke a person may start sending garbled text messages which might be difficult to understand. This might help in diagnosis of some stroke cases where not much visible clinical symptoms exist. Since most electronic texts done in this century carry the date and time of texting a doctor can predict since when  a person might be suffering from a stroke because the messages before that date might not be the garbled one (although that’s a possibility only when a person don’t delete his previous messages (sms, email etc.) regularly, I might have a hard time since I delete messages terribly).

    Therefore this might be a good example of good use of modern electronic devices and who knows tomorrow some smart engineer will not come up with a software which will automatically detect a garbled message of an individual and compare it with the previous messages and send a pop-up notification or e-mail alert to visit a doctor; keeping in mind the pace of technology these days it don’t seem impossible!
