4 Features Of A Great PGP Encryption Provider

If you’re comparing PGP encryption providers, it’s probably because you value security and privacy. You don’t want people snooping around your emails, especially not cybercriminals who can use your personal information against you. If you’re a telecommunications user concerned about security, look for a PGP encryption provider with these 4 features.

1. Convenience

PGP encryption is easily accessible in the form of BlackBerry PGP encryption: an encryption provider will tailor a BlackBerry mobile device so that it’s highly secure and easy to use. The most secure way to accomplish this is to strip away non-email functions to prevent malware from infecting the device. Mobile devices are being compromised at never-before-seen rates; nearly 85 percent of global smartphones were infected with some type of malware in 2016.

Nintendo Plans To Bring Back NES Classic in 2018

For anyone who was unable to get their hands on an NES Classic last year, I’m sure that, like me, you felt betrayed as Nintendo pulled the plug on the retro console earlier this year, just as demand was still sky high. And while Nintendo promises to have more SNES Classics available when it releases later this month, it still stung to know you wouldn’t be able to get one of the NES Classics.

Well, Nintendo just announced that they plan to bring back the NES Classic and re-release it sometime next year, as well as announcing plans to continue selling the SNES Classic well into 2018. Hopefully this means I can one day walk into an actual store and walk out with not one, but two retro Nintendo consoles instead of having to find someone online who will only price gouge me a little bit.

I guess birthday wishes do come true, as long as you believe hard enough.

Apple Announces iPhone X, Is This The Era Of The $999 Phone?

Today was Apple’s big day of announcements as they revealed the latest versions of the iPhone, among them were the iPhone 8/8 Plus, as well as the much rumored iPhone X, which has been thought to be Apple’s significant update to the iPhone line in honor of the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone. Here are some of the biggest things you should know about their newest flagship.

Design

First, the design is the most obvious change as Apple removed the bottom bezel and much of the top, taking with it, the home button. The new design allows the screen to grow to 5.8”, while remaining physically smaller than the iPhone 7/8 Plus. This change also alters the basic functions as you now need to swipe up from the bottom of the phone to reach the home screen as well as having to use the larger power button on the side to activate Siri.

Face ID

Of course, you can’t remove the home button without also removing Touch ID, so Apple’s solution is to use advanced facial recognition which they’ve called Face ID. It works as one would expect, simply hold the phone up to your face and it unlocks. Apple claims Face ID is more secure than Touch ID and says it won’t be fooled by holding up pictures to unlock the phone, though people with evil twins should be on the lookout.

Mighty Let’s You Use Spotify on a Workout Without Bringing Your Phone

It seems like just yesterday when the iPod was the perfect workout companion and using our phones for music but a distant dream. Part of me still misses the ease and super portability of the iPod shuffle. Unlike today where gym visits and bike rides require lugging around an expensive and delicate phone, you could simply clip the Shuffle to your shirt and workout without it getting in the way.

Well, one company is trying to make workouts less of a hassle with Mighty, an MP3 player resembling an iPod Shuffle with a modern twist. The ability to sync playlists and songs from Spotify wirelessly. The Mighty can connect to Spotify through an app on your smartphone, which allows you to create new playlists and sync them over to the Mighty before a workout, letting you ditch the phone. The addition of a specific button also allows you to select between playlists, letting you fill up its 8GB capacity with around 1,000 songs over many playlists.

The Mighty was originally brought to Kickstarter where it raised over $300k, and soon after, the company began working closely with Spotify to ensure smooth ease-of-use. A win-win for both companies, it ensures that the Mighty and its owners will have Spotify’s support. The Mighty also has support for both 3.5mm headphones as well as Bluetooth headphones, so new phone owners still resentful with the removal of their headphone jack can use their favorite headphones during a workout without living the dongle-life.

There’s a little more to it, but it’s available now for $86 on Mighty’s website for anyone who thinks it may be time to rethink buying a dedicated music player.

Bosch’s Handheld Scanner Can Help You Figure Out That Mystery Stain

Bosch, best known for their home appliances, is showing off their latest innovation at IFA 2017, a handheld scanner that takes the guess work out of laundry. The small handheld scanner is able to detect the source of stains, as well as determine the fabric of the clothing being scanned, which it reads out on it’s small LCD display and sends a method of cleaning to a connected washing machine. So you can simply scan that wool sweater that you stained at cousin eddy’s Bat Mitzvah and toss it right in the mashing machine, though honestly who brings a sweater to a Bat Mitzvah?

As great as a laundry companion the X-Spect could one day make, Bosch seems to be exploring the possibilities with the tech. One of the gadgets other neat tricks is that when used to scan food items such as a frozen pizza, it can begin preheating a connected oven to a predetermined temperature. Though, hopefully the X-Spect can learn to play well with other brands as I don’t see many people filling their house with Bosch appliances just to use the scanner.

As for many cool things, the X-Spect still sits in the early stages of development. But as for release, the company hopes to launch it ‘soon’. Which it could sell alongside one of their smart washing machines as opposed to trying to sell it as a stand-alone unit.
