5:25 PM -- Here's an interesting piece on mobile security from one of our sister pubs: Mobile Insecurity.

It's strange, for years now, people have said that mobile devices are the next big security challenge. That came true to an extent with WiFi, but we haven't really seen it in cellular yet.

I suspect, however, that the general trend to download more ringtones, MP3s, and especially user-generated content onto your phone does give the motivated malcontent more gateways into the phone.

So, hey, let's stay safe out there.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.
