Techknowlogy For Life

Today I saw a man, who looked like involved in some official business, carrying a bluetooth device and probably a phone in the pocket. I thought about him for a minute and concluded that the person stores all his works in the office PC. Obviously, no paper-bunch can do the work so organizingly. He, therefore, enjoys the availability of pin-point data at the tap of a key (or, perhaps by just saying the file name!) and also the high computational powers and accuracy of the machine.

But then, there exists a dark side. What if his rival manages to lay hands on his office PC, perhaps when he’s out? Even if the system is password-protected, or endowed with any such dream-securities, he can break in with some tact and make a blast… Not that hard task.
Or, if our person is very unlucky, he may get a simple trojan to ruin it all.

The above possibilities connote all the aspects of present technology – It is all the good, the bad and the ugly. More
