I got whatever is #1 on amazon for about $60 a few weeks ago and have been spending time learning to fly it before I invest in something awesome. Worth considering as they are harder to fly than one would think.
While I actually agree that this type of feature SHOULD exist I think it is better implemented at the Operator level by them implementing IMEI blocking like every other major carrier around the world. This "kill switch" sounds like a huge target for hackers as all they need to do is break down one wall and they have access to everyones phones kill switch. Much like when China and other Rogue states infiltrated Gmail and other mail carriers years ago it wasnt through the front door but the secret back door that the Govt had installed.
What about a system where when people use the system the swipe their badge on a logging device? Wouldnt be 100% perfect but would be better than paper as people are lazy. If the devices have stand alone monitors you could put make the power for the monitor (not the test equipment) tied to the badge reader?
Are there any plugins, scripts, extensions etc that one could install that automatically encrypts stuff that is over 5 months old? Occasionally I need stuff from back then when I would need to search for it -- which I guess would be problematic? Is there a solution to protecting this stuff w/o deleting it from the server?
You can set your phone to GSM only.. (which lots of people do as it increases battery life and generally gives a better call quality)
I have it on good authority (I've worked at my fair share of cell phone operators globally) that all of the Major networks around the world will be going to LTE.. If they are on CDMA now (like Verizon) they will go straight to LET, if they are on GSM / wCDMA / UMTS they will go to LTE next..
Its not a question of if but when..
