How to set screen time limits for your children on iPhones, Android, computers, Instagram and YouTube

The Independent - Tech

Parents and experts are increasingly concerned about the damage being done to children by spending too much time looking at screens. The latest warning comes from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, which suggested that excessive use of screens could bring a whole host of negative outcomes for young people. That includes everything from bad sleep to the potential for cyber bullying, though the organisation warned that the damage might be overestimated. Helpfully, the technology industry is increasingly aware of the same problems and is trying to solve them using products.

As temperatures rise across the country for the summer, parents should be aware of reasons why they could forget their child is traveling in the backseat of their car, and ways to prevent these type of tragic incidents from happening.

Babies are more susceptible and at higher risk for heat-related illness and injury than adults, she added. A child dies when his or her body temperature is at 107. Technology could make a difference in curbing hot car deaths among children.

While the impact new products have on the world rarely rises to the significance of the first personal automobile, each year brings a new lineup of consumer products, some of them the first of their kind, to the market – and 2018 is no exception.


Cyber ransoming: A growing parasitical business for UK hackers

The Independent - Tech

Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting UK workers files and data, and the Metropolitan Police have warned that "no one is safe". The FBI, Metropolitan Police, and security experts all agree that cyber ransoming has fast become one of UK's biggest economic crimes.
