How Secure Is Your Cell Phone?

This week I wrote this column about keeping secure information on your cell phone or other hand held device like an iPod Touch.

I realize lately that my columns have been more “doom and gloomy” so I wrote this “cheery” piece about losing your phone.

Yes; occasionally we all have to bow to the masses. 🙂


The Star Trek Universe

I’m always humbled to write a script idea and Star Trek Repulse is no exception.

I was able to write most of the story line today and it’s a real tear jerker to Star Trek fans.

Fueled by a need for revenge, a technology we haven’t seen before, and a death count in the billions, Starfleet faces an enemy that will stop at nothing until they are destroyed.

The Qutarians start a conflict that Captain John Burton hopes to bring to an end. He’s lost his parents and is now forced to return to the planetary system where they died. Unfortunately, his new ship now bares the name of Repulse. The same ship that had been destroyed along with his parents all those years ago.

Lansu won’t forget. He won’t forget about a wayward nacelle crashing into his settlement on Delvian 2 and taking the life of his beloved wife Kara. The Qutarians want revenge. They build a massive ship to fulfill that purpose.

Armed with a “phase based” technology Lansu begins a crusade of destruction. Destroying whole worlds, he begins to make the Federation pay for what they have done.

When Lansu destroys Captain John Burton’s home world and his aunt and uncle, the need for revenge becomes the “pulse” of John Burton’s command decisions.

Armed with a small Federation Starship, John Burton has a score to settle.

The battle for Earth’s survival begins with…
