They have not passed a law to update the protection of minor’s scents 1998. There are companies that go after you and your kid’s digital footprint. They use this information to label you and make money off you by selling want you like to do on the internet to big companies. That does not care about you or your kids. To them you are nothing more than a number and dollars signs. The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) “The changes to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, however, are likely to do as much to invade children’s privacy as to protect it” ( Adhikari TechNewsWorld). So do you want your kids out there of the world to know how old they are and other personal info?
Most kid-friendly site does more than protect the information of the clients they even inform what they should not be giving out. In this day and age most people know not to give out your name to people you do not know, you address, you social security number, your pin number, and most people know that you are not going to get any money from a guy that email you for a few hundred dollars you can be a millionaire. So I do not think this law is going to pass because it gives a “free pass” to kids that is all well and good. Anyone can claim that I was a kid and try to get a free pass and do what every they want to do one the internet. So the next time your kid is on the computer take a look at what they are doing that is the easiest way to keep your kid safe on the internet. Do not forget you have a way to lock websites so your kids cannot get to most of the bad websites. Look it up on a search engine or YouTube and you can learn a lot about how to keep you and your kids out of harm’s way.

Either way google and youtube are thing to get in the market of social media. If they maybe the next big hit or next big fail but I would not mind going to the same place. I can see it working as long as they do not throw to many Ads in your face. That is why facebook lasted so long it is because did not do that. The only thing that we want to see as a user is what are friends are up to. But the you can not over look the power and money that youtube and google have in there banks. They are a name brand may take them somewhere with this if they do it right. So I say give them a chance and maybe they will have a home run in there pocket.

If you think you can teleport to your class room to your dorm room you are a Startrek fan or a sci fi junkie. Then this is great your news for you, have you ever wanted to talk to you best friend on mars or drive the land rover that is now mars. There are two Universities that are working on this they are University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences. They just broke the longest quantum teleportation record is now 143 kilometers (roughly 89 miles). Why is this so big you are thinking to yourself?
This kind of new break through could lead to “quantum internet”. So you phone calls will be clearer than ever and your internet will be light years faster. You can talk to someone on Mars in a matter of seconds. Right now to control the mars rover it takes 7 minutes for the pilot to send what he wants the rover to do.

What does this mean you are thinking to yourself. It is like taking an atom storing data on the atom a senting to a near lightspeed to a computer that is miles away in a the matter of seconds downloading a library of information in the blink of an eye. We are getting close to teleportation but we may never teleport people that may just have to stay a dream for now or will it ……… Stay tuned only time will tell.
