Benefits and Risks of Location-Based Services

Location-based services or LBS are a general class of computer program-level services used to include specific controls for location and time data as control features in computer programs. LBS are mostly used in Social Networking as an entertainment service, which is accessible with mobile devices through the mobile network and which uses information on the geographical position of the mobile device.

LBS allow users to share their positions with other people by disclosing their own location, and very popular in social media networks such as Facebook, Foursquare and Google Latitude. Currently there are two primary mobile location tracking apps for devices – Google Latitude and Apple’s Find My Friends. Both allow  “friends” to track one’s position in real time. Each application in the same way at a high level, but with differing functions and features.

There are a number of benefits from using  location-based services . Some examples are:

Real estate marketing – alerts homebuyers about properties in area that meet their specifications.

Discounts and coupons – sends alerts to consumers who have opted in within a geographic radius

Keeping track of children and teens – parents can be alerted when kids leave or arrive at specified location, such as school , home or when teens are out partying with friends

However the privacy implications are significant in that other people might be able to track your position.

Location-based services have done a lot to improve our lives but people need to treat these applications with care. It’s important to understand what criminals can collect from where you are or not.

Renovations That Boost Your Home Value

Very few people live in the same home for their whole life. What is more is that when you finally part with your humble abode, you would obviously want to at least break even or maybe even make a profit on your home. With trends and styles constantly changing, home renovations is a good place to start if you want to spice up your home and guarantee a financially pleasing property valuation.

Here are a few renovations to consider that will surely look good on your property report when you consider selling your house.

The Bathroom

Like it or not, but the bathrooms in a house do make a big impact on potential buyers. You don’t need replace everything but a nice modern shower and basin can go a long way. If your toilet is old but still looks and works fine, just replacing the seat can make a huge difference. Other than that re-tiling or a new coat of paint also makes an impact.

The Kitchen

For most homes the kitchen is the hub of the house. This is where most activity happens and where most eyes pass through. Renovating your kitchen can be more complex than renovating your bathroom. Here the layout, appliances, color and feel all make a difference. It is not just about replacing the cupboard doors or painting the walls a different color. It will definitely help to bring in an expert for this type of renovation.

The Face of your Home

As is the case with meeting new people, first impressions are very important. Make sure your house is presentable from every visible angle. This includes the garden as well as fixtures on your house such as lights and plumbing that are visible. Giving the outside of your home a new coat of paint can also work wonders.

Let your children play outside – The advantages

Outdoor toys aren’t only things to play with, they are mediums to train your child emotionally, physically and educationally. It helps to avoid child obesity and it gives your child the everyday essentials he needs. Child obesity has been rapidly growing and it’s alarming how many children have grown obese. Strict schedules and long work hours have destroyed the balance of parents and children.

Outdoor activities

Parents work long hours and when they get home to their kids they feed them and then put them in front of the computer or TV so that they don’t have to look after them, it’s understandable since we all work so hard, but it’s essential that you at least put in an hour of attention solely focused on your kids. You should encourage them to play outside and give them the outdoor toys they need to keep them interested. Outdoor activities will help them exercise under developed muscles as well as help them with motor skills and social skills they need. Their motor skills are developed when the child plays with balls, balances on beans and climbs a jungle gym.

Skills moulded

His social skills are tested and moulded when he has to share his toys with his brothers, sisters or friends. He is taught self discipline when it comes to waiting his turn on the slide and leadership skills develop on the playground where he might decide to jump in an argument and delegate.

As your child runs outside and plays he will constantly be communicating with his friends which help him enhance his communicative abilities. When he’s sitting in front of the television or computer he doesn’t talk to anyone and keeps to himself. Playing is a social game. Even when playing alone outside the child is forced ot use his imagination, which helps his creativity grow. Creativity is also an important medium, especially when he or she wants to pursue a career where they need their creativity to complete a project.

Playing outside is healthy and there are many benefits, try to teach your child to play outside and if you need some R&R then let them watch television and play computer but enforce a tight schedule so that they can get the best of both worlds. If you don’t have a flicker scooter then I’d advise finding the best toy shops and buying it, it should keep them busy for a few more hours so that you can relax.

Common Car Buying Mistakes

I know that buying a car is exciting and we often get carried away by the whole experience, which means we fail to see the small things that affect you in the long wrong. These are a few common car buying mistakes to avoid at all costs.

  • Too much emotion

We can easily fall in love with the first car we see, you need to avoid this. By becoming emotionally attached to one model means you will fail to see the negatives about it or you won’t see the positives in the other cars you will try. Set emotions to one side and make sure you have done your research on all the cars you will be testing.

  • Specific dealer

If you are looking for truck bodies do not go look at the Hyundai dealership for example. Go to a dealership that sells a particular brand or type of car.

  • Skipping the test drive

This is a very important part of the car buying process. Car will obviously look good on paper and the model may be beautiful in real life, but it doesn’t mean that it will live up to your expectations on when you actually drive the car.

  • Focusing only on the monthly repayment

Many sales people will like to bargain based on what the monthly payment will be, although this is only a way of being manipulated and you will end up paying more than you should. Always discuss the vehicles price first, and then move on to financing, trading and optional extras.

  • Under estimating the value of modern safety features

Most modern vehicles today come with a safety features. Many buyers, however, do not know what safety features to look for. You could be buying a car with farm machinery safety equipment for all you know. Important things to look for are ABS braking, stability control, side air bags.
