Plane Finder

While I was looking up information on my flight to Australia next week, I came across this very cool website. It's called Plane Finder. Basically, it's a website which displays a real-time map of all active flights, along with their flight path, call signs, and aircraft details. I thought this was pretty cool and I had no idea our skies were so crowded. At the time of my checking, there were 9,560 flights...impressive!

Norse IPviking - Real-time Visualization of Global Internet Attacks

viking_0.jpg

Norse IPviking is a free online tool that displays a real-time visual map of global attacks with information such as, the attacking country, the target country, and the type of attack that is being carried out. No surprise, but you will see most of the attacks originating from China.

This stuff is super cool to watch, especially at specific times of the day. Another interesting thing to note is where most of the attacks are coming from and what countries are repeatedly getting hit. You can see why US information security experts are so highly valued...the US receives the majority of the global attacks.

Japanese Web and Mobile Study Resources

I have recently kicked my Japanese study into high gear, and to assist me with this, I did some digging on the internet to find some of the best apps/tools/websites to help with my language studying.

This time around I am arming myself with some of the latest free and paid mobile apps and online website tools. I thought I would quickly share what I have found so far in preparing my personalized study program.

Here are some of the apps/tools/methods I am using along with some info...



Uber Taxi Service

After using Addison Lee for the past year, I finally gave Uber a try, and I must say...I absolutely loved it! Uber is a car for hire service and is managed through a smartphone mobile app. You basically just fire up the app, identify your location (using your phone's GPS), specify where you want to go, and then book your driver. It even gives you car options, such as a standard, executive, or luxury car for your journey. The app also provides you with your journey's estimated total fare and when you can expect your pickup.
