Gadget or Gotcha?
What If Your Smartphone Had Wings
Video streaming from the air is about to get a whole lot more affordable. It just so happens that the brains, gyroscope, GPS and camera aboard all those new drone cameras you may have seen can also be found in your smartphone…
Slip your smartphone into a PhoneDrone Ethos, and you have your own flying camera at a fraction of the cost of a fully equipped camera drone. Worried about your smartphone taking a hit in the event of a crash landing? For about $50 you can buy a cheap smartphone with all you need to fly the Ethos.
Built-in mirrors enable you to shoot down, forward or to the side. You can preprogram it, or fly it manually from the ground. You can even control it with an Apple Watch. It’s scheduled to start shipping this month, September 2016! Discounts may be available at xcraft.io/phone-drone.
It’s nice to find a good discount on a new gadget. Hard work deserves fun rewards. But, saving money is saving money. Are you a small business owner who works hard to protect what you’ve invested in time and in money to build your business?
We’re happy to give you a fun tip about a mobile gadget, but what about mobile access to your business’ computer network? While a PhoneDrone Ethos will guide your phone as a flying camera, what’s guiding mobile access to your computer network? It’s difficult to take a break to enjoy the fun things in life, when you know something as important as your data could be vulnerable to cyber attack.
According to the Nokia Threat Intelligence Report – H1 2016M, around the globe in the first half of 2016, smartphone infections jumped almost 100% – in comparison to the last six months of 2015. (www.infosecurity-magazine.com)
