A Unique App to Protect Your Mobile Phone!!!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprint for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today's mobile phones are small computers with immense capabilities. The accidental or deliberate loss of one's cell phone can lead to enormous amount of loss both in terms of data and finances. First off modern smart phones are expensive to purchase and then if after spending hundreds of dollars you lose the phone it is devastating. Secondly phones contain valuable information from important telephone numbers, email, banking passwords, and other sensitive personal data. Given this kind of importance that a cellphone holds doesn't it become a necessity to somehow protect it from loss, damage, or theft?

One cellphone service provider has found it relevant to develop and deploy a mobile app that will help protect their subscriber's telephone and data from theft, loss and/ or damage. Yes Sprint Telecom has introduced a new app for Android, Blackberry and other select feature phones. The app aptly named Sprint Total Equipment Protection App enables you to perform several tasks such as: locating a missing phone, sync contacts, remote wipe phone memory, remote lock the phone, sound an audible alarm so you can find the phone. This app is available for all Sprint Total Equipment Protection subscribers at no additional cost.

Summer Burns Texas

It is almost a week since I returned to the US and I feel as if I am melting in the triple digit temperatures of Texas. The day I returned it seemed as if Gods had taken pity and cooled it down with a small shower. Then the sun came back with vengeance and it has been in the 100s ever since.

Today the sun burned a steady 104 degrees F making it feel more like 114. This is not the hottest day... if the weatherman is to be believed tomorrow the mercury is going to rise to 107 with partly cloudy forecast. Clouds don't mean rain but more heat because heat gets trapped underneath the clouds and above the earth's surface making it searing hot.

If there is one season I don't like it is searing hot summers in Texas. I can take icy cold when temperature dips to a negative 5 or 10, but when mercury rises to triple digit heat that is when I get extremely uncomfortable. When it gets cold I can cover up with more and more layers but in the heat there is only that many layers I can shed.

I just hope that summer passes off soon giving way to the nice two months of the year, i.e. fall.

Here is a wish to all my compatriots from India.

Wherever you live,
whatever you do,
whichever nation you are a citizen of....
remember your roots are always in India
Celebrate today - the independence day
a day for which thousands of valiant souls
left their mortal bodies in the face of
enemy bullets and gifted the nation
