Not a day goes by that we don’t hear the same message, “we must act to save our planet and our species.” From the mere task and urgency at hand, most of us become overwhelmed by the responsibility and thus do nothing. Understanding this burden companies, organizations, and activists have created tools to help guide us towards the right path, make the right decisions, and take the right actions.

Some of these tools can be found right on our android tablets. They are easy to use, convenient and even fun. Let’s take a look at how we can protect our planet with our android tablets.

The CO2 Fit App

The CO2 Fit App is a tool that will help you monitor and track your transport CO2 emissions. Moreover, it also rewards you for taking sustainable, alternative means of transportation via a virtual green currency. Whether you drive, cycle, take public transport or walk, this tool can help you understand what you need to do to reduce your emission by presenting other greener options available. All you have to do is simply start the app before each trip, and it will track your speed, distance and give you your CO2 emissions value.

Eco Charger

Let’s consider this: every time you leave your phone or tablet plugged when it’s fully charged, you use about another 1 WATT of energy. If we take into consideration all the phones and tablets on our planet, and the number of times an individual may leave them plugged in after full charge, well, that a lot of energy wasted.  To help individuals take action and save energy, this app notifies you when your phone/tablet is fully charged. The app also comes in handy when you are traveling, or when your battery is overheating or is under an abnormally high voltage intake.


This app is not only good for our planet, but is also good for your health. All you have to do is download the app and use your device to scan the barcode of the product you are thinking about buying.  The GoodGuide app then immediately reveals the health, environmental, and social performance ratings of the product. You can scan foods, personal care products, and household cleaners and items. The app also offers safer and more environmentally friendly alternatives to your product thus guiding you towards a more conscious lifestyle and shopping.


JouleBug brings entertainment, fun, and competition to sustainable living. It is an application that rewards you for your sustainable choices. You can receive badges, pins, and points, every time you take the right action. Whether it’s bringing your own reusable bag, mug, or container, biking to your office, or recycling, JouleBug rewards you for doing the right thing. You can compete with your friends while saving money and reducing your carbon emissions.

Green Globe App

Love traveling, but you also worry about emissions? Now you can travel with sustainability in mind with this Green Global App. The app provides a list of sustainable hotels, attractions, tours and even cruise lines – as sustainable as those can be – so that you can enjoy some luxury without feeling guilty.


Oroeco is another application that tracks your carbon footprint. This app however, does not only track your transportation footprint, it also takes into consideration the goods you consume. The app breaks down your actions, what you buy, and what you consume, and provides you with your emissions number and impact on your planet. You can even compare your emissions number with those of your friends and neighbours.

This is just another way our Android tablets are helping us live a more satisfying life!

From disgruntled employees, to cyber predators, to malicious software, your network is put at risk from the moment it goes online. To defend against all attacks, the combination of company security policies, software and hardware work together to create a wall against predators. Network Security is of the utmost importance to any industry, making sure your private information stays private.

Company Policies and Procedures

Uneducated employees create one of the greatest risks to company security. Through weak passwords, disregarded security breaches and neglected program updates, these employees create vulnerability within your system. Hold training courses to educate your company on the basics, like creating a strong password or what to do with a security breach.

The more informed your staff, the more protected you become. Keeping that in mind, only give your IT department the access to troubleshoot these issues, as they are the most qualified to fix any program breaches.

Securing Your Network

One of the greatest vulnerabilities to a company is an open network, which allows any user at any given time, all the information that is available on the network. Data encryption and identity authentication protects the most classified information from users who should not be allowed access.

Go over the program information for your network to make sure every precaution has been taken to put these safeguards into effect. To ensure the highest level of security, monitor who has access to what data, and make sure your employees are knowledgeable.

Keep their personal devices up-to-date as well, which can combat against viruses when they access the network outside of the office. Lastly, the key to a secure network is technology built to analyze, protect and fight viruses and other malicious software.

Choose a program that provides all three services as prevention may be important, but fighting viruses and preventing a future attacks are equally imperative to network stability.

This is actually my very first product review. But before I begin, I would like to tell you that since all I have to say about iBallz may be positive, this is not biased. Before I even received the item, I was already amazed and impressed with this accessory. This is the only the second time with which my interest piqued because of the purpose that it gives (the first one being the Eye-Fi).

So what is an iBallz? It is an accessory that features 4 balls with strings attached in between that can be stretched to fit any tablet device and this does not apply to iPads alone. Even Android tablets apply here since the strings can be stretched and fit on to any kind of tablet size. The main purpose of the iBallz is to protect your tablet from being damaged in case you drop it.

Other than that, you can also use the iBallz to place your tablet in a sort of slanting upright position so you could do some typing on it. Not bad right? The iBallz also works great with an accompanying lid, satchel, soft sleeve or hard case, whichever you like.

To see is to believe right? Check out the video demo below so you can see the iBallz in action. Again, this creation is absolutely brilliant! Apple devices are like jewelry. As much as possible it is best to accompany your tablet device with something that can protect it from damage anytime. The iBallz is a very good complement!
