10-DIGIT DIALING FOR ALL LOCAL CALLS

To ensure a continuing supply of telephone numbers, the new 364 area code will be added to the area served by 270. This is known as an area code overlay.

Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to display a number on the recipient's Caller IDdisplay that is not that of the actual originating station. The term is commonly used to describe situations in which the motivation is considered malicious by the speaker or writer.

Because of the high trust people tend to have in the Caller ID system, spoofing can call the system's value into question.

You may have heard about people storing their photos, documents and other forms of data on the “Cloud." What does that really mean? We know they’re not storing their files in the sky or in a ball of moisture, so where exactly are people storing their information?

Other than its name, the Cloud actually has nothing to do with the earth’s atmosphere. The Cloud is actually a group of servers in a building somewhere that stores terabytes upon terabytes of users’ data. The location of the servers may vary depending on the company you are using for your storage, but the overall concept is the same.
