Delivering an unmatched level of privacy and protection, Boolean Tech
today announced the immediate availability of StitMe, a game changing,
mobile privacy app for iOS and Android. StitMe allows users to gain an
unprecedented level of personal protection with complete privacy control
over their mobile phone communications and messaging.
StitMe allows users to connect with each other by simply using a StitMe
ID like #JaneDoe, so there is no need to give out a personal mobile
number ever again. When users make outgoing calls, the recipient’s
caller ID will show the unique “StitMe Privacy Protected Connection
Number” instead of his or her personal mobile telephone number. This is
a permanent number between two people and both can use this number to
call each other. The user’s actual mobile number is never exposed, and
the number cannot be shared with anyone so they are protected from
unwanted return calls, sales calls, harassment, stalking and anonymous
StitMe offers unlimited connections and unlimited calling time at no
charge. Further, the app provides users with a timer-based Auto Kill
switch to kill chats from both ends. StitMe is the only app providing a
comprehensive and complete tool to protect all communication with
contacts (Talk and Text). Once the app is loaded it automatically
assigns privacy protected one-on-one connections to each of the
contacts, thus securing the entire address book with no loose ends.
The recent NSA revelations showed that personal conversations or even
medical records were also compromised. StitMe shields you and your
conversation in all walks of life, be it be selling something on eBay or
Craigslist or having a private confidential conversations via dating
websites, distress hotlines, your stock broker or when you are selling
your house. StitMe provides complete comprehensive cover to your entire
address book and more.
Here are the simple steps to use StitMe:
Get the mobile number of the person you meet and input it into the
StitMe app or simply exchange your StitMe IDs (if the other party is
already a registered user of StitMe) for other people to contact you
via StitMe - no more giving out your actual mobile number.
A “StitMe Connection” is created for the user and the other party to
contact each other, instantly establishing a one-to-one secured
The caller and recipient will only see the StitMe connection number on
their caller ID – the actual mobile number will never be exposed.
Users can pre-set the day and time they want to receive calls from
their StitMe contacts thus preventing calls at “off hours” or on days
they may be at work.
This one-to-one connection can be deleted anytime, providing another
layer of protection. Just delete the StitMe contact from the StitMe
address book, and the other person can never contact the user anymore.
“Privacy is a right and not a commodity thus it must be made available
to one and all, therefore StitMe is ‘FREE’ for all end users,”
said Gurtaj Singh Padda, founder and CEO of Boolean Tech. “Never before
have consumers been able to securely, safely and easily control their
entire mobile sphere of text and talk. StitMe’s cutting-edge technology
is extremely easy-to-use, works with every phone, on every network and
is completely untraceable.”
app empowers users to allow others to connect with them or not, with the
freedom to control who and who can never contact them, and when they can
be contacted. Further, the app masks the users’ location, thus shutting
the door on hackers and people engaged in identity theft who might try
and track the phone by using a reverse number look up.
The messaging uses private and public key encryption technology, so not
even Boolean Tech, the creators of the app, can decipher the messages.
“The keys are generated and kept locally on the users’ phones, so if our
staff can’t break the code, we know that nobody else will,” continued

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures.
