What is a DRM and how does it work on mobile device?

DRM stands for “Digital Rights Management.” It is the technology that controls your access to copyrighted works such as movies, music, literature and software. The product files are encrypted so that you can only use them on authorized devices. For example, if you have downloaded music onto your PC, and want to access it with your smart phone, you may need to enter a username and password in order to be authorized to do so. Additionally, there may be a maximum number of devices from which you can access your purchased files.

Are all the phone numbers in a mobile stored only in the SIM or does the phone also have memory to store phone numbers?

Can you really get a GPS device for tracking your valuable gadgets?

GPS tracking is available for your gadgets like your mobile phone or laptop. Some services are aimed at recovery if it’s lost or stolen. The first step is to register your GPS cell phone or laptop, but check out the fine print. It might not work unless the application is on, for example, making it pretty useless to find a lost phone with the power off or a stolen one if the thief knows to turn off the tracking app. On the other hand, if you want to know whether you left it in the office, the restaurant or the car, it might be just what you need.
