This I Believe...

There is a great program on NPR called This I Believe. Per the NPR website:

This I Believe is based on a 1950's radio program of the same name, hosted by acclaimed journalist Edward R. Murrow. In creating This I Believe, Murrow said the program sought "to point to the common meeting grounds of beliefs, which is the essence of brotherhood and the floor of our civilization."

Now updated and airing on Monday mornings, it's a very revealing insight in our societal core.

 If you have a moment, take a listen to some of the very compelling stories here:


What made me think of this is that, as many of you know, I recently lost my phone.  My previous phone had died only two weeks earlier so this phone was brand new.  I knew a few places where I might have left it, but some where closed by the time I realized the phone was gone.  In the end, retracing my steps, I was able to find where I left it and was amazed they still had it.  With so much of our lives contained in these small, powerful devices the loss of one (even for a short time) is quite disruptive.

(Going back to topic)

This I believe...if you own a smart phone there are a number of apps out there that will allow you to ring your phone, track your phone's GPS signal, and in the instance where you think it may have been stolen, wipe your phone's memory - all done remotely from your computer.  And these apps are FREE.

The one I now use is "Where's My Droid", but there are quite a few of them out there.

The one catch - you do have to download one of them onto your phone PRIOR to losing it!

Do yourselves a favor, check them out and install.  Well worth it!
