Choose a Phone With User Authentication Feature

Buying an Android device automatically means that you get some security features that protect you and your smartphone. For a higher level of protection, however, make sure that your Android device has the latest security features like those that follow.

Authentication features have changed much since the first smartphones became introduced in the mid-1990s. The earliest smartphones with authentication features required only a PIN for access to the device. If you knew the phone’s PIN, then you could get access to any app on the device. Eventually, manufacturers included other authentication features such as patterns and complex passwords. Even with these developments, however, a smart thief could find a way into the device.

Today’s most sophisticated smartphones have more authentication features. For example, the Galaxy S8 Plus can scan fingerprints, irises, and faces to make sure unregistered users cannot access the device. With this choice of smartphone, you also get the benefit of T-Mobile’s encrypted network that prevents criminals from eavesdropping on your communications.

Touch Screen Technology Essential To Supply Chain Management

Data-driven industry and supply chain management is pushing the drive toward greater connectivity in computers on shop floors, from industrial PDAs and control panels to CNC machines. The ability to comprehensively collect real time data and analyze it, whether it’s on a single shop floor or worldwide, means that factories, warehouses, and transportation companies can operate more efficiently, reduce errors, and improve profits. However, it also means that the technology used on the shop floor and in the hands of drivers, packers, and inventory controllers has to keep up. Industrial PDAs without WiFi or that act as data silos are no longer acceptable as inventory management systems require real time updates.

Connectivity is giving industry and SCM renewed competitiveness as foreign competition puts pressure on already slim margins. Take for example this story in The Telegraph about a manufacturer of plumbing parts that regularly struggled with the daily fluctuations of metal prices. Their material costs were always unpredictable and price adjustments happened regularly. The switch to a new IT technology that would help them better manage their supply required the introduction of touch screen PDAs and all-in-one PCs that could communicate seamlessly between inventory and accounts.

Top Hidden Cameras of 2017

Every year, new hidden camera models hit the market that put almost everything that came before to shame. This is true not only in terms of raw functionality, but also in how effortless they are to hide in normal, everyday items. Comparing a model released this year to one that is even two or three years old is striking, to say the least. If you’re thinking about purchasing a new hidden camera for 2017, here are a few models in particular that you’ll absolutely want to be aware of.

The 720p HD Wi-Fi IP Light Bulb Camera
When placing a hidden camera, one of the best things you can do is find a model that looks like a common item people wouldn’t think twice about. With that goal in mind, what item could possibly be more common than a seemingly normal, everyday light bulb? But the 720p HD Wi-Fi Light Bulb Camera has a powerful secret hidden inside – it’s actually one of the most advanced covert recording devices on the market today.

In addition to the fact that it can store 24 hours of HD video with a 32GB memory card, it also captures faces incredibly clearly from across the room thanks to the 720p HD lens. It can capture crystal-clear video even in total darkness and includes effortless setup. Just plug it into any light socket and forget about it!

Welcoming The New Vape from Arizer Tech: The Solo II

The following article is sponsored. – Ed.

Arizer launched its original Solo in May 2011 which has managed to not only stay but do well in the market for all these years and it is only in 2017 that the company has decided to launch a new and upgraded version of the Solo, the Solo II. This proves the efficiency and merit of the original product which is justified by the fact that it took 3 long years to plan and design the device. Hence, one can imagine the expectation that people would have from the newest addition to the line with which the Solo platform is up for a complete upgrade.

From what it seems from the look of it, you may be thinking that the newer version from the Canadian manufacturer, Arizer, has not much to offer which would seem to be an update to the features of the original Solo. But this is exactly where you are wrong as apart from deriving its design and look from the original Solo, the new Solo 2 has sent everything integral to the device starting from its UI to battery to overall experience up for a major makeover and a complete upgrade. Wait till you hear it all.

It connects over Wi-Fi and has a fancy LED display.  Your friends and colleagues will be genuinely impressed when you open a bottle without even touching it and quench your thirst.
