Your behavior is packed with data that can be utilized to maximize your digital security. IBM researchers are looking at the unique behaviors of individuals to develop the next generation of privacy and protection.

Your SD card just became outdated. Really outdated. The new Eye-Fi SD cards are an impressive step forward in the never ending war on wires.
While you are busy shooting, Eye-Fi cards are not just storing your images on the card itself, but are also sending them to the cloud or other devices like your mobile. As they are successfully saved off-site, your card is cleared, making space for more striking images. If you are not in range of a wireless connection the card simply stores the images until a connection is successfully made.
One of the benefits of the Eye-Fi that has some photographers excited is the ease in which you can transfer photos taken on an SLR and use them on Instagram. Never mind resizing and sending to your iPhone, the Eye-Fi does all the obnoxious work for you. Take a look at the company web site and let us know what you think of this new product.
