Below is a summary of what was discussed on the Tech News Tuesday for Private Investigators.
Man questioned by federal authorities after wearing Google Glass
Shortly after a woman was found innocent in court after being accused of using Google Glass when driving (and found innocent) a man was questioned by Federal Authorities after employees saw the man wearing Google Glasses in the movie theater.
The man was questioned because authorities believed he might be videotaping the movie, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” Pirating video is a big business and apparently taken very seriously. The man was actually wearing Google Glass with prescription glasses. Recording the movie with his Google Glasses never occurred to him.
What I found interesting about this story
I thought it was very interesting to hear that the man in the story had prescription lenses attached to his Google Glasses. This is actually a big step in making this technology main stream. If people can justify wearing Google Glass as part of their prescription, people may be less likely to think someone is using the glasses for something illegal and allows for this technology to take a step closer into becoming main stream.
Guest blogging can help or hurt your website
Guest blogging can be a great help to an investigator and their website. It can assist with a private investigator’s website climbing the rankings. It can help a private investigator gain authority and trust. It can also allow investigators and customers to find an otherwise unknown investigator.
Guest blogging can have a down side. Marketing companies are looking for the benefits of guest blogging but don’t always provide unique content to websites. When copied articles are shared repeatedly on the internet it begins to hurt the website that is carrying copied content. This can in turn affect you rankings on the Google search engine.

This watch is affordable and offers more than I could imagined and quite frankly more than many other smart watches on the market today. This would have many great uses for private investigators.
