Mobile devices have spurred growth and connectivity such that the Internet powers everything. Notebooks, netbooks, smartphones, tablets–you name it, devices are ubiquitous, and perpetually in hand and online. And that impacts, in a very large way, the way that businesses operate and also the way that life, in general, operates. It’s kind of scary, overwhelming, exciting, exhilarating and awe-inspiring, all rolled up into one. At least that’s how it is to me. But more exciting and exhilarating than anything.

Want to see what goes on on the Internet in any given minute? It’s pretty cool.

  • 30 hours of video uploaded and 1.3 million video clips watched on YouTube
  • 639,800 GB of global IP data transferred
  • 204 million emails sent
  • Amazon rings up 83,000 in sales (yes, in one minute)
  • 320 new Twitter accounts are created and 100,000 new tweets are generated
  • 3,000 photos are uploaded and there are some 20 million photo views

image

Whew. Are you amazed yet? There’s more.

  • 100+ new LinkedIn accounts are created
  • 1,300 new mobile device users
  • 277,000 Facebook logins and 6 million Facebook
  • 2 million search queries

And if you think that’s more than a little overwhelming, the number of networked devices (phones, tablets, computers, etc.) today is equal to the global population. By 2015–in just three short years—that amount is expected to be two times that of the global population. Holy catballs.

The lesson: if you think things are moving quickly today, buckle your seatbelts.

All the things you’re doing, from a personal and from a business standpoint, the pace at which information flows, how we manage our networks and grow and manage our businesses using the web—well, in the words of BTO, “B-b-b-baby, you aren’t seen nothing’ yet.” And mobile devices, they’re revolutionizing everything.

So, what will you do about it? This proliferation of mobile devices and an always connected consumer base. Are you taking a good look at your business website and your analytics, which are your roadmap to what your customers are doing? Are you paying attention to how much traffic to your site is coming from mobile devices (and which kind), and are you watching those numbers grow on a month-to-month basis? What are you doing to adapt to the mobile consumption of data and information and how are you marketing to people using mobile devices? How are you delivering information to them and interacting with them? And how are you making their lives less complicated? How are you making it easy for them to do business with you?

If these aren’t things you’re already thinking about and working on–you’d best get going.

HTC has announced it is making tweaks to HTCSense.com and will shut down features available on the cloud service on Apr. 30. Customers are advised to back up their data before the end-date.

The Taiwanese phone maker said in a statement Tuesday that HTCSense.com will remain shuttered until new services are available. "If you have been using HTCSense.com to sync your Contacts, Messages, Footprints or Call History, you can download your data through Apr. 30, 2012. After Apr. 30, your data will no longer be accessible and will be deleted," the company added.

Users will need to login at HTCSense.com with their username and password to download a .zip file containing the backup data.

HTC also advised users who would like a phone-locating service or backup service to visit Google Play, which was formerly known as the Android Market, to download an application that best suited them.

The HTCSense.com service allows users to synchronize their phone to a cloud service, and offers them the ability to remotely lock their device or wipe all data off it, as well as forward calls and text messages.

Fujitsu says it has created a system that can recognize when somebody is being victimized by a phone scammer, by combining voice intonation analysis with keyword recognition.

Mobile phone scams are a plague on Japan’s elderly. Criminals often pose as the victim’s acquaintance or as a figure of authority, such as a police officer or lawyer.

A common con involves criminals who pose either as victims’ relatives or as acquaintances of their loved ones. They then try to convince their intended victims that they’re in trouble and need money transferred to an account to bail them out.

Fujitsu has released a description of its new system, which, it says, can analyze such conversations and warn family members or others as they take place.

According to Fujitsu’s release, the company, together with Nagoya University, in central Japan, has developed software that detects changes in voice pitch and level that are common in scam victims’ intonation.

Images in the release show a flattening in vocal high-frequency range that occurs when a person is subjected to psychological stress as another party conveys distressing information.

 

Phone scammers typically put their victims into these states of stress by concocting stories that are peppered with ominous words, such as "indebtedness," "compensation," "debt," or "repayment."

When victims are overwhelmed with distressing information, some are susceptible to losing their powers of judgment. In these instances, a situation known as "over trust" occurs.

Here’s how Fujitsu describes this condition:

There are limits to human powers of perception and judgment. When overwhelmed with information that may be distressing, some individuals, without knowing it, may have a diminished capacity to objectively evaluate information provided by another party—a situation known as "over trust." In situations of over trust, there is the risk of believing everything another person is saying, even in cases of remittance-soliciting phone phishing scams, for example.

The scam detection system combines frequency analysis with voice recognition to scan for words spoken by potential scammers. It counts the number of times the caller uses words typically used in scams, based on a keyword list provided by Japan’s National Police Academy and on recordings of actual remittance-solicitation phone scams.

It might sound like eavesdropping, but as Fujitsu describes it, the technologies ignore everything except the keywords on the pre-registered list and the frequency with which they’re uttered.

Nagoya University and Fujitsu are collaborating with the National Policy Academy and The Bank of Nagoya to test the technology on mobile phones.

While the system already has a 90% success rate in tests done to date, Fujitsu says that future testing will evaluate the technology’s practical utility in actual cases of fraud and attempt to come up with solutions to any problems that arise.

I can imagine that such problems might result from analyzing conversations that involve people in the habit of changing their intonation frequencies when they’re not actually distressed. Actors, perhaps? Or perhaps those who are trying to hide something?

Or what about when people are actually distressed, even though no scam is involved? Would a false alarm result from a divorced couple discussing alimony payments, for example?

I’ve asked Fujitsu for the technology’s false positive rate, and I’ll let you know what they have to say.

In the meantime, for more reading on phone scams, the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has a list of common cons on this page. 800notes.com has another comprehensive list here.

Would you install this type of nanny phone software to eavesdrop on your relatives’ conversations, or does it all seem too intrusive? Please let us know in the comments below.
