NC State Warns Android users: Beware of 'smishing'
The text message can come out of nowhere. At first glance, it may even seem legitimate. Maybe your bank needs you to update your account information, so click this link. Or your cellphone provider asks you to change your password for security reasons by visiting some Web address. But behind those links are sites run by opportunists looking to capture and profit off any sensitive information you provide. News Observer

After I finished the cover story for this issue, I read an interesting article by economist Paul Krugman, the op-ed columnist for the New York Times, titled, "Partying like it’s 1995."

Like when he predicted a shift of automotive assembly to Canada after Toyota announced a new plant in Woodstock, Ontario in 2005 because of "free healthcare," among other benefits. That Toyota deal was the last major automotive assembly plant announced in Canada and I predict it will be the very last one for the Canadians.

After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
