Why Get A VPN When Owning A Website?

Once it comes to internet security, it’s almost a no-brainer. The wisest decision is to err on the side of caution. But when it comes to setting up a stable link, user usability is essential too.VPNs are user friendly and easy to configure.

From the average internet surfer to a small business operator, this added security feature will make your mind feel at ease. It is advisable to get into the practice of implementing new methods that will protect your data. Any of the reasons below is sufficient to get a VPN.

You Make Use of Public Wi-Fi Frequently

By now, you’ve already heard that public Wi-Fi is a hackers’ hangout paradise. So why would you entrust your internet connection to a café, an airport, a lobby hotel, or even an Airbnb? Hotspots are low in security so that they can offer broad public access. Still, the average user has no idea who controls the connection or who else uses that connection at any given time.

If you have signed on at your nearest Starbucks or on PureVPN provider, your machine will transmit on that network to everyone else that you are still online. A hacker may scrutinize your behavior and manipulate or change your details.

You Shop or Do the Online Banking

You’re probably logging into your bank account online, like most people these days, instead of walking into a brick-and-mortar office during working hours. Your credit card and banking passwords are incredibly insecure, whether you are logging into a public Wi-Fi or your home office or not.

You may wonder why if HTTPS connections are safe, why a VPN is required. HTTPS secures contact between you and a given website. The website also knows your ISP, but a VPN shields your ISP.

A VPN encodes all traffic

How Online Reviews Help You Detect Bad Quality Smartphones

Some of us relate to the distress of making a purchase and then ending up having completely been scammed! 

Well, this is not something new in the smartphone industry. I remember once my sister purchased a phone online and on delivery, the advertised 64Gb was scaled down to 32Gb. 

The company had no return policy and she had no other options but to use it regardless. That was many years ago and stringent measures have been put in place regarding e-commerce. 

While it might be a good thing for companies to flood the market as it lowers the product prices benefiting the consumer, too many companies make it hard for consumers to know online multimedia companies to trust who to trust.

It, therefore, necessities one to be cautious before making a purchase. To do this,  a good consumer knows the value of reading reviews.

In this article, we shall look at how online reviews help one detect bad quality smartphones.

Online reviews give accurate information about product performance.

Big smartphone brands are always competing with each other to produce better and better products each year. 

With this in mind, you’re more likely to be assured that you’ll be getting something good. However, for those small upcoming smartphone companies, it’s hard to tell the performance.

This is why you need consumer reviews to confirm whether the smartphone lives up to the advertised standards.

Sometimes the smartphone might have even better performance than most similar phones but it just becomes difficult to attest when the company manufacturing is not a “big name”.

On the other hand, some phones from big companies genuinely are of poor performance contrary to what we may expect.

 

To know this, you’ll have to check on the product reviews. 

  • Negative reviews act as Caution.

How JPMorgan and BlackRock are thinking of playing fund manager M&A

  • Top brass from JPMorgan and BlackRock, among the firms to kick off earnings season with their results, said Tuesday that they expect more consolidation in the wealth- and asset-management industries.
  • Pressures on money managers have fueled a flurry of acquisitions in those areas this year, and analysts questioned executives about their own deal ambitions, albeit coming from different corners of the market. 
  • JPMorgan boss Jamie Dimon said the bank would be “very interested” in deals in that space, and BlackRock finance chief Gary Shedlin said the firm was focused on targets that could expand its technology, global distribution, and private markets capabilities.
  • Last week, Morgan Stanley said it would buy investment manager Eaton Vance in a deal valued at $7 billion just days after it closed on its E-Trade acquisition. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Top brass at the world’s largest asset manager and largest US bank told analysts on Tuesday that they expect more mergers and acquisitions in the wealth- and asset-management industries, and signaled both firms are on the prowl. 

On the back of Morgan Stanley’s $7 billion deal for Eaton Vance last week, analysts peppered JPMorgan and BlackRock executives with questions about their appetites for deals during their respective third-quarter calls, which helped kick off the latest earnings season. 

“Well, since we have you all on the line, our doors, our lines are wide open. We would be very interested, and we do think you’ll see consolidation of the business,” JPMorgan Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said. 

“But we’re not going to be more specific than that,” he said, adding there were considerations around what type of deal would make sense for the largest US bank by assets, like technology, product, and execution. 

Dimon emphasized early this year that he was interested in carrying out more

PS4 update lets parents decide which games kids can chat in

Sony is giving the PlayStation 4 one more big update before the PS5 arrives, and it’s particularly good news for parents. A version 8.00 update releasing today makes multiple additions, including simpler and more adaptable parental controls. Limits on communication and viewing user-made content are now lumped together to make it “easier for parents to understand.” Crucially, kids can now ask for permission to use communications in specific games — you can make an exception if you know a young one will be talking to friends.

Not everything is positive. The 8.00 update removes user-made events and the creation of private communities. You can still use private communities that already exist, but they’ll clearly dwindle without the option to make more. Sony hasn’t explained the move, but we’ve asked for comment.

There are more additions that might offset that decision. Party and Messages are now more closely connected, with a new interface that uses the same groups for party voice chats and messages. Two-factor authentication finally supports third-party authenticator apps during activation as well as sign-ins across PS4, mobile apps and the web. And you can finally mute all mics from the Quick Menu — you don’t have to wade through menus (if your headset doesn’t have a mute switch) just to take a quick break from the action.

Sony is also updating its Remote Play apps for phones and computers to enable PS5 connections, although that clearly won’t be useful until the new console’s November 12th debut.

You might not want to rush to update to 8.00 when there are reports (albeit a handful) of party and friend issues. We’ve asked Sony about those as well. Even so, it’s hard not to be at least a bit sentimental about this update.

How Innovative AI Solutions Can Help Combat Global Warming

Ashok, CEO of UnfoldLabs, is an innovation veteran who believes in making the world a better place with futuristic technology products.

Australian researchers have suggested a 2050 scenario of doomsday for humanity.

Climate change is the biggest and toughest global problem humanity faces today. Global warming requires innovation from the brightest and the best. Our scientists have turned to artificial intelligence (AI) for the best possible solutions because it is easy to proactively predict and build models immediately. Top leaders like Google, IBM, and Intel have launched many pilot projects that read, analyze and suggest the right solutions to save our planet from global warming.

Here are some prominent and innovative AI projects to combat global warming.

1. Warm Oceans

The arctic has lost 80% of its volume of ice since 1979 and is melting at the fastest rate ever. Due to the melting glaciers, the rising sea levels threaten the natural ecosystem and other low-lying countries.

AI solution: Solutions like ASIP read satellite imagery and provide detailed sea information like ice cover, thickness or snow depth that is fed into the deep learning models. They then analyze and predict the melting point of glaciers and movement of icebergs and take the right preventive measures, such as warning sea vessels in the polar seas. This improves efficiency and the safety of every marine operation.

Interesting (scary) fact: A new AI climate model predicts Arctic sea ice could disappear in just 15 years.

2. Natural Disasters

Global warming is increasing and accelerating the magnitude of natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and wildfires. For example, Australia’s forest fires this summer occurred due to extreme heat and burned almost 20% of the country’s forests. Australia is no longer alone: The western part of the United States is also suffering greatly from
