Yeah, I know it's a cold winter (and so does Donald Trump) but watch this, educate yourself and sound smarter at cocktail parties. Fact is, in recent years, both the Pentagon and foreign governments have cited failure to mitigate climate change as a primary national security concern.
As you know from my post last week about texting while driving, I'm a bit committed to making sure that NO ONE EVER texts while driving. Well, today's Cool Site of the Day is Rode Dog, an app that promises to prevent texting while driving. This app came about when an 11-year old, Victoria Walker, won a hackathon and was awarded $20,000 by AT&T to develop the app. Here's her story. The app is not yet available in the App Store but you should visit their home page anyway and put your name on the notification list. See it and rate it here on the day
Tech giant Apple is worth a lot of cash. In addition to being the largest publicly traded company on the U.S. stock market, its 2011 sales were worth $128 billion — more than 160 different nations’ gross domestic products.

Keep sensitive info out of your chat logs & email - I got a nice email reply from my wife after she opened the secret message I sent her (hint, hint). Bottom line: when you send people passwords and private links via email or chat, there are copies of that information stored in many places.
