The Security Implications of Wearables, Part 2
“The possibility of attacks varies largely, depending on the broad category we are focusing on. The probability of attack will increase depending on where the attack can take place. Conversely, the possibilities of physical damage are much more remote as you go further from the physical device. As the attack moves further away from the device, the focus shifts towards stealing the data.”

Using What You Got
I always find it interesting to think about how our parents and grandparents used to visit cities like New York, LA, or Chicago, they would go to the city and have to rely on word of mouth and recommendations. Now we have things like Yelp on our phones where we can plan so much better, see reviews of restaurants, plays, or stores to see what is worth visiting. Apps like that have made randomly travelling to large cities one of my favorite hobbies, there is so much to find, so much to see, and a lot of it isn’t the big touristy attractions our parents saw. The internet has definitely changed our society, sometimes it is not always for the best, but what we can definitely say is that it is giving us a different perspective than our parents once had.
