Kingston DataTraveler 2000 Review – Encryption made simple

Kingston DataTraveler 2000 Review – Encryption made simple

Data security and privacy is a pretty hot topic right now. Currently Apple is battling it out with the FBI over whether or not they have to unlock an iPhone. It's nice to know that (at least for now) the data on your phone is relatively safe, if you've added a passcode to it. But not everything important that you carry with you is on your phone. What if you need to carry sensitive information on a flash drive? For that, you need something special, like Kingston's DataTraveler 2000, which I've been using for a little while now.

VR will be the most “anti-social” social platform

VR will be the most “anti-social” social platform

Thanks to the wonders of technology and the Internet, we are able to connect with friends and family, share with them our experiences and interests, wherever they are in the world. However, most of the time, we can only do so if they happen to be on the same service as we are. Sounds familiar? That's basically the structure behind every social network walled garden. And that is going to be the case with VR as well. At Samsung's UNPACKED event at MWC 2016, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg prophesied that VR will be the next platform, meaning the next social platform. Problem is, VR, as it is today, is inherently anti-social.

Reality check for virtual reality – the dangers of subpar VR experiences

Reality check for virtual reality – the dangers of subpar VR experiences

In the next few months, even this week alone, expect to hear a lot about virtual and augmented reality products. Oculus and HTC/Valve are set to launch their respective headsets in a month or two. Google has just stepped up its Cardboard marketing and retailing. Coca-Cola is mulling over recycling its packaging into VR headsets, but Sweden's McDonald's may have already beaten them to the punch. But more than any other consumer technology in the past decade, from smartphones to wearables, VR perhaps presents the most health questions. While the answer are still murky at this point, they all revolve on how the quality of a VR product, both hardware and software, largely determines the effects it will have on your body.

Raspberry Pi 3: why this one is special

Raspberry Pi 3: why this one is special

Four years after the launch of the original Raspberry Pi, the new Raspberry Pi 3 has appeared with several very important new features.

Both Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi are now built-in with this Raspberry Pi 3, freeing up room for more ports for more projects and more freedom for the device on its own!

Netflix fights back against VPN users, but at what cost?

Netflix fights back against VPN users, but at what cost?

It's been a while since Netflix declared war on customers who use VPNs and other means to access content outside of their country. So far, their efforts have lead to a few VPN providers having their IPs blocked, but that only lasted for a few days at most. Even with a little help from Paypal, their efforts appeared to be in vain. However, over the weekend, the tides appear to have shifted.

NYPD wants access to ALL iPhones (with a warrant)

NYPD wants access to ALL iPhones (with a warrant)

The New York City Police Department says they'd like Apple to unlock every iPhone currently subject to a court-ordered search. Once the San Bernardino doors are broken down by the FBI, the NYPD has made clear: they want in, too. That'd mean every iPhone entered into evidence in a court case and subjected to a search ordered by a judge could be forced open by law enforcement, courtesy of a piece of software they've forced Apple to create. That software would be an entirely new version of iOS which the FBI (then the NYPD, and every other law enforcement agency in the USA) would then install on each iPhone, bypassing Apple's security measures, opening the locks to access data. You might be asking yourself, "why is that so bad?"
