Text messaging is always something many believe to be a private matter, and with a new system put in place by Watsonville police, crime-stoppers have managed to take advantage of that line of privacy. Text messages will go through a third party system and then arrive to any police officers on patrol. This new line can be quickly used to give tips to police about new crime they may miss out on, or just to notify the police that something isn’t quite right. We believe that thanks to the high speed nature of texting, this could become a very handy tool.

We all need to call the cab from time to time, but this article is the first to make us realize that there really isn’t any other form of public transport that offers this quick ‘order of service.’ A business in India hopes to change this by allowing train passengers to book for tickets before the train’s arrival. It’s easy to imagine that this could make travel by train a whole lot smoother and more convenient for both those working for the train and the passengers. We really hope we see a similar service being adopted worldwide.
