A great way to teach young children the importance of reaching out for help if someone makes them feel uncomfortable. This is an effective video the explains what a “trusted adult” is and why children need to trust their own judgement when they feel that someone may be acting inappropriately.

Very interesting. My wife is illustrating a series of self-published "TYI" kids books, which tell stories urging kids to Trust Your Instincts.

If Google is serious about providing wearable access to the Internet and to its mapping service, to the general public, it will have to find a way to price them for $600 or less.

There were 4K TVs all over CES, but there is still a lack of 4K content available. Considerably more bandwidth is required to stream 4K video online, which is a challenge Akamai says it's working to solve. Read this article by Larry Magid on CNET News.

Even though Hanukkah was early this year, we still have more than a week before Christmas, which means a lot of people are doing some relatively last-minute shopping.

My Merc column -- just posted   How to keep your gadgets running during a power outage

I have a feeling most googleplusers' kids have a better record rooting boxes than most if not all three-letter government agencies. I think the primary advantage here is being able to get parents to use something other than IE. Now that's the kind of parental control I can support.

Just because you haven't heard of a company doesn't necessarily mean it's not trustworthy. But if you venture away from the major e-retailers or retail chains, it's a good idea to do a little homework before forking over a credit card and your home and email address.
