Apple Aims to Get an iPad in the Hands of Every Hospital Patient

Apple has made great strides in health in the last few years and if it gets its way, there will be an iPad in the hands of every hospital patient. It’s already started with a smattering of hospitals around the U.S. including Jacobs Medical Center at UC San Diego, MetroSouth Medical Center in Chicago and about a year ago at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. Earlier this week, I went down to L.A. to take a tour of Cedars-Sinai‘s pilot program allowing patients direct access to their vitals, care team and educational tools through iPads.

Zeus Malware Found with Valid Digital Certificate

"Malware with a valid digital signature is an extremely dangerous situation," the company said in a blog post.

BlackBerry in Africa, Amazon in Turkey

Image Would you like to get your hands on a new BlackBerry (BBRY -2.89%) Z10 smartphone before it goes on sale in the U.S. on March 22? Try South Africa. It's been on the shelves there since March 1. This is not to suggest that South Africa is a more important market than the U.S. Obviously, with a population of about 50 million -- compared to more than 300 million here -- it's not. But at least South Africans can say they've been loyal to the BlackBerry brand: It still holds a 50% share of the smartphone market there, years after it fell off the radar screens of U.S. consumers.

Turkish High Schools Teams Participating in the First Robotics Competition Regionals

ATAA Trustee Davut Okutcu visited the Turkish teams competing at the New York regionals at the Javitz arena. "The varsity Sport for the Mind," FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It's as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

Comodo CEO and founder Melih Abdulhayoglu
In the most recent release in a line of acclaimed antivirus computer software, Comodo Internet Security 2013 has taken antivirus protection to a new level by focusing on eliminating threats before they can ever happen. Computer viruses and other malicious programs and software slip into computing systems every day, securing all sorts of data and infecting systems. The idea behind the new Comodo technology is to never allow any of those evil processes to ever begin. How it works is simple: the users go about their typical computer activities while the antivirus software stands by guarding quietly in the background. The antivirus client allows only certain applications to run on the computer and blacklists those that do not have permission.
