Tablets and Smartphones can be a lot of fun for kids. There are plenty of games to play, websites to look at and apps to experiment with. These devices may also seem like convenient babysitters when you’re busy with work or chores. However, simply handing your mobile device over to your little ones poses several potential problems if you don’t take the time to child-proof it first.
Giving the kids free reign of tablets or Android phones opens the door for them to access inappropriate web content, rack up accidental credit card charges and possibly even damage your device. Before letting your child play, it’s important to take precautions to ensure that both they and your Smartphone or Android tablet stay safe.
The most obvious way to prevent youngsters from doing or seeing something they shouldn’t is to keep an eye on them. You never want to put your child in front of any electronic device without supervision, be it the television, the computer or your Android tablet. Monitoring your son or daughter’s activity lets you catch problems before they happen and gives you opportunities to teach them what is and isn’t acceptable when it comes to technology.
Keep Content Kid-Friendly
There’s a lot of content out there that you don’t want your children seeing. Fortunately there are many apps available to help you filter out anything objectionable. Mobicip is a kid-friendly browser that uses the same standards that schools do to filter out inappropriate web content. Norton Safety Minder lets you keep an eye on web activity as well as block certain sites. Other apps such as PlaySafe, Kids Place and ChildrenTV give you various tools to manage which apps, games and other content your children are allowed to access when they use your Samsung tablet or other device.
Lock Down Purchases
Accidental purchases, both of full apps and of items within apps, can result in credit card charges that you aren’t prepared for. iPhones include a setting that allows you to turn off in-app purchases, but currently the only way to prevent accidental charges on an Android phone is to block access to apps that may include them. The Famigo Sandbox app gives you a way to do this by allowing you to control which apps your youngsters use as well as minimizing access to other device functions such as text messaging.
Get a Protective Case
Whether it’s grippy or squishy, chunky or sleek, padded or gel-like, get a case for your device before handing it off to your child. Protection is more important than style. Little hands often lack coordination and are therefore more apt to drop things, including expensive electronics. Cases can even become part of the fun. Make your device look like a little person, wrap it in a high-density foam grip or nest it inside a squashy pillow. Whatever type of case you choose, you’ll know your Smartphone or Android tablet is safe and sound.
Before you let your little ones use your Android phone, Samsung tablet or other mobile device, make sure that you’ve taken the appropriate steps to make it safe. Cushion it with a case, install kid-friendly apps and keep an eye on your children as they play to ensure that they have a positive, fun experience.
Most companies today depend on technology to survive and most people make use of a computing device at some point every single day to get the job done. In an ever more connected world, people work together using a combination of computers, tablets, and smartphones over local and global computer networks. It’s a fact that technology has changed the game for modern business, and the company with the best technology wins, allowing employees to work faster and more efficiently than competitors.
What’s the best way for you, the modern business owner, to manage the critical technology for your business? There are a couple of different options. First, you can let Joe, the ‘shade tree tech’ who works in HR, handle all of the technology issues. Second, you can hire a full time Information Technology Specialist. And third, you can hire a professional outside computer consulting company to handle the technology side of your business. Let’s briefly examine the pros and cons of all three options:
Enlisting a Non-Technical Employee
This is the lowest cost solution
Asking someone who is not technically inclined to do technical work can easily frustrate them, leading to an unhappy worker
Problems are often resolved the wrong way, what seems like a working fix at the time eventually leads to larger and more costly problems
Without detailed knowledge of the latest trends in the technology industry, these types of workers are unable to provide good input on hardware or software upgrades that can help your business run faster to remain competitive
Smaller jobs may be completed quickly, such as clearing a jammed printer, but projects that exceed this workers computer experience will take five to ten times longer to resolve than the time it would take a trained professional to do the same
They are unable to perform their main job functions while messing around with technical issues
Hiring a Full-Time Technology Worker
You usually receive a high level of technical support
Your business can stay abreast of new changes in technology to help remain competitive
This solution costs the most to sustain, since technology employees are specialized and annual wages to retain them are high
For most small businesses under twenty employees, your technical worker will not have enough work to justify a full days salary
Without someone already on staff with a background in technology, finding and hiring the right candidates for the job can become difficult and time consuming
If this worker leaves unexpectedly, they can leave your business in a very tough spot
Hiring to a Computer Consulting Company
This solution costs significantly less than a full-time employee, for as little as $3,800 per year you can keep your technology infrastructure running smoothly
You don’t have the overhead associated with employing or managing a full-time worker
The level of technical support you receive is often higher than that of an in-house staff, since the computer professionals you will be dealing with often have many years of in-depth hands on experience
A technology consultant has access to resources on his team that you don’t get with a single employee, including sophisticated tools, training materials, and additional technology specialists who can assist them with projects when necessary
Even when employees change, your IT infrastructure is safe
Your business remains highly competitive, as you’re dealing with IT professionals who work with dozens of businesses each year and know about all of the latest productivity enhancing hardware and software solutions available
Their up to date training includes many of the latest mobile apps that can help mobilize your workforce via smartphones, tablets, and the cloud
Finding a reliable company can be difficult
For most small to medium size offices the choice between a non-technical employee, a full-time technical employee, or a technology consulting firm should be a no-brainer. At going rates an outside IT firm can save your business $44,000 per year in operating expense vs. hiring a full-time employee. An outside IT company also provides the security of knowing that your critical IT infrastructure is safely managed by trained professionals.
What would one day of down-time going to cost you? What would one week cost? It’s not necessary for you to find out! For a minimal investment, an IT support company like my PC Techs can come into your Phoenix area office once a week or once a month and perform routine server maintenance, computer maintenance, and make sure the network and systems are running optimally. Beyond that, your expert computer technicians can provide group training on new software, help upgrade existing software to newer and faster versions, and provide consultation on how to spend technology budget in a way that provides the best bang for the buck.
