As many of you, I too am just hearing the news. Actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away at age 83. It’s never easy to see one of your childhood heroes pass on. As you know Mr. Nimoy was best known on Star Trek as Spock. While other will write about the actor and the show he was best known for I would like to remember what he gave us. A character of logic and Science that offered balance to the otherwise hot head Captain Kirk. They taught us that being different was OK and working together we accomplish anything. It’s not just the character, it’s the memories we grew up with. Both what the show offered as well as the time spent with family. As I child I spent many weekends on the couch with my father watching the original series. No different than playing catch these are the bonds we take with us.
On to your next adventure sir! Stop and say HI to my father along the way. Rest in peace.
If you are like me and are checking out the world of Android Wear you might want to take a look at some of these apps.
This is one of the coolest Minecraft videos I have seen.
In an effort to keep our children both safe in this new digital world and honest when dealing with peer pressure, controlling their devices is just another parental responsibility. So many applications including Facebook and Snapchat are some of what today’s teens are using. Sometimes you might need to block your child from installing these apps. Here is how you do it…
1. Delete the app you do not want the child to use.
2. Go to Settings / General / Restrictions / Enable Restrictions
a. You will need to create a 4 digit passcode
b. If you forget the 4 digit passcode, the only way to reset it is to Reset the entire phone
3. Under Allow, turn off Installing Apps (this is remove the App Store icon from the phone)
4. As an extra precaution, you can also turn off In-App purchases
5. Scroll down on the Restrictions screen to “Allow Changes”. On Accounts, check the option for “Don’t Allow Changes”.
While adding these Restrictions does not fully prevent teen sexting, it sure makes sexting a little more difficult. Through phone records and iMessage, a parent can track who their child is sending text messages to and in some cases, even see the content being sent.
