For a long time I wanted to offer a video camera for citizens to record their police encounters and then upload the video to my website for my expert analysis and review of the incident. It's like having me as a passenger every time you are pulled over by the kops. I'm excited to announce my new high-quality and very affordable BarryCams.
Thus video was taken today using my BlackBox model that mounts within seconds to your dash or windshield. This model is equipped with a fold down LCD screen for video review and shooting accuracy. The camera is battery powered with a cigarette lighter jack adapter. When unplugged, the BarryCam can be used as a wonderful hand-held video camera with a recording time of over 2 hrs on a single charge. I have been using this model each time I hit the road and I also use it as a home video camera to catch any special moments. The video is recorded to a card and upon plugging the unit into your computer, the BarryCam software automatically uploads the video to your computer. You can then choose to upload the video to my secure website for review. Upon receiving the video, I can review it and give you my expert opinion regarding any police misconduct. This model will sell for around $250.

Even though credit cards now feature an EMV chip for securing transactions, they still have to include the magnetic strip for compatibility with older point of sale systems. Because of this, there’s no way for the chip’s new security capabilities to protect against card skimmers in the wild.How do you protect yourself from legacy-technology-induced fraud? […]
As the old saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 30 minutes every day. Unless you are too busy, in which case you should meditate for an hour.” Since most of us have an endless list of things to do and people to see, carving out quiet time can feel impossible, especially when most […]
