You know what they ought to make…? They ought to make an app so that a cell phone owner can command their own phone to destroy its data in the event it is lost or stolen. I know this technology already exists for PCs. A few years ago, I knew a man whose colleague tried some nasty corporate skullduggary–informations theft, basically.
We were hanging out in his apartment–the one with the great view of Central Park. The guy was grinning and breaking out the champagne. “What he doesn’t know is that I have access to every single one of his computers which uses our technology! I just cleared them all! He’s going to get a SURPRISE when he tries to log on! HA!”
“Wow,” I said. “That’s like something out of James Bond.”
My host waved his hand. “Everyone uses it these days.”
I miss that guy. He was a lot of fun.
I clean out my phone all the time, but I am still anxious about it falling into the wrong hands.
Here are some random pics I found while deleting this morning.
First, bizarre graffiti found written on wall of subway station.

Next, Washington Square Park, for visitors of this blog who have not seen NYC (you should come visit!):

Look at the size of this huge Kit Kat. The picture doesn’t really do it justice. It’s as big as Michael Jordan’s hand. For some reason, I thought it was comical.
