Security Device for Smartphones Printer Friendly Version
The core of this invention is the inclusion of a security routine, either in the OS, in the cloud, in the firmware or as an application of the device, or other. This security system operates as follows; (1) a pattern if typical usage is constantly recorded and becomes a training set, (2) if the pattern of usage is detected that is not consistent with the training set then the user is asked for a secure password, (3) if this password is not entered then the device is locked down, or wiped or other secure actions take place.
Firstly, after the software system is installed on a device the software starts recording all user inputs and usage patterns, including:
1. Touch screen inputs, inclusive of typical errors and typos made
2. Voice entry and phone calls, inclusive of person recognition by voice characteristics
3. Application menu options selected, the order of menu selection, typical times and dates for specific application to be used etc
4. Types of websites visited
Smart algorithms running on the phone or a cloud computer then convert this common usage data into algorithms that detect uncommon usage, which are indicators of a third party using the smart device. If this is detected the suspected third party user is asked for a password, which if not supplied enables the phone to be locked down or even wiped, or any other secure action taken. Note there are two types of common usage modes that can be detected:
1. When actual usage does not match the training set by action (e.g. when certain touch screen errors are not made), or
2. When certain function are not performed when they normally are (e.g. a weather website is not visited as it usually is).

A Seperate Card To Store Credit/Debit Purchases On Printer Friendly Version
Have you ever forgotten to save a receipt from a card purchase and then you can't balance your check book? Rather than having online banking you could simplify this part of the process by having one card instead of ten to twenty web sites for each card, that can be swiped through right after your purchase card (Visa/Master Card) that would record all your amounts of your purchases and what they were (all the information). Then you swipe it at home on a home version of the store's computer and it all comes up with all the info for every card.
The small card swipping equipment could Plug and Play into simple software for reading and permanent storage on your home PC or Mac. Plus, now Tax laws make us save receipts for end of year taxes and we probably always will have to save them but, if we used this card and software then we could submit all the receipts all at once instead of 10 to twenty hours of paid work or a serious problem doing it yourself. An easy way to balance your check book weather it is online banking (the software could be compatible) or the paper kind and no hassle hanging onto to hundreds of pieces of paper in shoe boxes collecting all year long.
Reward: The look on my face when I see it being used!

Media Shrinker Printer Friendly Version
Basically, it's software that will find a specified game folder, locate all the audio/video/and image files and shrink them. By shrink, I do not mean zip.
The software would take say a jpg and extract some of the pixels, thus shrinking the file. Take away some noise in an mp3/wav file, and it also shrinks.
I have been doing this very tedious task manually for some time now in order to make graphically intensive games run faster. It DOES work.
