19 Android apps that you used in 2011 and don’t remember anymore

Let’s be honest: Android in 2011 was ugly. I know it’s easy to say it know, six years later, but let’s exercise our honesty again, Android today is a pretty OS and yes, not everything is aesthetics: it also works better. In these six years that we’ve used as reference, everything has changed a lot: system updates whit more features, apps and services that have appeared and disappeared… Also, there’s still some problems, like the fragmentation.

Today we bring you what Americans call a blast from the past and that in Spanish has a pretty difficult literal translation. Let’s say that they are things from the past that we suddenly remember existed and surprises us. Whit this post we want to make a compilation of the apps that you used a few years ago and now see and think: It’s true! I didn’t remember that app. (more…)

Netgear Orbi RBK50 AC3000

Nowadays, it is difficult to live without Wi-Fi, as we have gotten used to having a wireless Internet connection in our homes and workplaces, becoming essential in many cases. Many devices can be connected to wireless networks and the technology keeps being improved in order to offer increasingly higher speeds that can even outshine the traditional wired networks.

Technologies like the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard allow us to have a wireless bandwidth of several Gbps. However, these technologies’ biggest enemy are great distances and walls, which reduce their range considerably.

Netgear’s Orbi system is a platform consisting of a router and a satellite used for increasing the Wi-Fi signal, allowing domestic users and companies to have a high-speed network with a great coverage that does not need having any technical knowledge and that is easy to set up.

OnePlus 5T, review with video: this is the authentic flagship from OnePlus in 2017

OnePlus recently presented its newest model, the 5T. A continuation of the OnePlus phone series with improvements that as we saw in our first look did very good to the phone and it fitted within what was expected: 18:9 screen, a design very similar and very few changes in a phone that in its 5th version (no “t” behind), had already done well in previous reviews.

What looked simply like a small set of changes is actually a revelation that the 5T is the real flagship from OnePlus and that the earlier model was a really premature version, this was confirmed with the news that the OnePlus 5 ceased production to focus on the 5T

Design:​ ​the​ ​fair​ ​changes​ ​if​ ​something​ ​functions

The​ ​chinese​ ​fabricator​ ​proved​ ​last​ ​year​ ​that​ ​he​ ​could​ ​make​ ​good​ ​designs​ ​of metallic​ ​bodies​ ​with​ ​the​ ​OnePlus​ ​3T.​ ​With​ ​the​ ​model​ ​5​ ​they​ ​were​ ​reaffirmed and​ ​they​ ​got​ ​an​ ​excellent​ ​balance​ ​between​ ​material,​ ​form,​ ​size​ ​and​ ​curves. It’s​ ​a​ ​nice​ ​device​ ​in​ ​hand​,​ ​with​ ​curves​ ​that​ ​facilitate​ ​the​ ​grip​ ​and​ ​as​ ​a​ ​bonus barely​ ​slips​ ​from​ ​the​ ​hand.​ ​A​ ​difficult​ ​balance​ ​and​ ​a​ ​pleasant​ ​alternative​ ​now that​ ​the​ ​crystal​ ​bodies​ ​have​ ​returned​ ​with​ ​strength​ ​this​ ​year.

Bitdefender against new and more complex computer threats

Bitdefender describes the current bleak picture of computer threats and presents future trends, illustrating his completely innovative methods that will enable businesses to deal with increasingly complex malware and targeted attacks.

In recent days Bitdefender organised an interesting press conference in Milan, in which we participated. The spokesperson for the company, a worldwide specialist in IT security technologies and an innovative solutions provider (its solutions protect more than 500 million users in more than 150 countries), painted the current scene and presented future trends explaining which strategies can be put in place to protect against new threats, which are becoming increasingly more complex.

Security is a top priority for any business (or at least it’s supposed to be …). Targeted attacks, which are increasingly more widespread, can be exploited by cyber-criminals to carry out industrial espionage, to steal intellectual property or confidential information, or simply to cause serious damage (such as the loss of data).
