Linh, that was a great argument against using your smartphone as a digital wallet -- but not such a great argument against using Facebook.

NO RATINGS
"Another reason not to join Facebook..." and yet, people are signing up to Facebook in droves around the world, every day. I'm sorry, but respectfully, I feel this is pure fear mongering, and in a world where social media is more and more important to one's career, advice about NOT signing up to facebook is not only a little old-school, but also rather unhelpful in my opinion. You may as well tell people not to drive because it's dangerous. Or not to pay with a credit card in restaurants, because a waiter could steal their card number. Or not register to any online site, or fill out any survey because it facilitates identity theft. Identity theft IS a real problem, I'll grant you that.... but instead of limiting yourself online, just take sensible steps to protect yourself and use with caution. Don't feel the urge to share your phone number, date of birth, mother's maiden name or city of birth. Or, use different security questions when you sign up for things.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
