THE GUIDE TO AVOIDING ONLINE SCAMS IN 5 POINTS

Image
We live in an ages where online scams are the order of the day. When it is talked about in the main news sites, the reader often dismisses the question with a classic " but who falls for it ?". While remaining a legitimate question for users who have a certain familiarity with the world of the Web, this nonchalance with which the topic is dealt with does not take into account a rather important factor: the human being. Yes, it is true that most scams can be avoided by arming yourself with patience, inquiring and using a little common sense, but it is equally true that we all have moments of inattention , taken by our thousands of daily activities. One of the factors that scammers focus on most is haste. "Click here, courage you wait, you only have a few minutes . " Before falling back into the usual clich├ęs, such as the opinionated" they deserve it ", take a second to reflect and maybe take a look at the research conducted by Lloyds Bank , according to t

ASUS PROART PA32UCX, THE 4H HDR MONITOR WITH MINI LED REVIEW

Image
In recent years Asus has accustomed us to continuous innovations in the field of PC monitors. Obviously we are referring to the consumer segment, in the professional field there are monitors with incredible specifications but also very expensive. That's why this ProArt PA32UCX manages to stand out from the crowd , offering features superior to those of any monitor we have tried so far, all at a high price, around 3000 €, but aligned with direct competitors in the sector, if not lower. In fact, ProArt is the Asus brand created to meet the needs of creators, a demanding user who needs perfectly calibrated monitors to work at their best. It should therefore not be surprising the choice of LCD technology instead of OLED technology, which remains the most used in the sector. To push performance to the maximum, a normal Full LED backlight was not enough, which is why Asus has focused on Mini LEDs , currently the most advanced technology in this area and which works perfectly on this pr

Many factors have decreed Netflix's current dominance over the world of streaming. The ease of use, the richness of the catalog, the disproportionate amount of original films and TV series, the perfect management of the internet connection. Pieces of a puzzle perfectly stuck on top of each other to which one of the factors that has pushed the platform the most: the possibility of using the service simultaneously and on different profiles. Two side of the same coin that have given rise to the phenomenon of account sharingbetween several people. With a single subscription, you can get from a minimum of two simultaneous views to a maximum of four, making sharing almost unlimited if you can make sure that the uses are not simultaneous. A practice that has made the company "friend of the user" but which now seems to be no longer frowned upon by the same top management. Fight without quarter Competition in the streaming world has become very strong lately. Prime Video is

TP-LINK ARCHER MR600 REVIEW: A GREAT 4G + AND WI-FI ROUTER

Image
" The Italian connections are not the best ". We have all been repeating this for a long time now and we know well how many areas of Italy still navigate through the now obsolete 7 Mega ADSL, or even worse. Over the years, the most disparate solutions have been sought to solve the coverage problems of the most remote areas, but a stable solution has hardly been found. However, a recent TIM report shows that 99% of the Italian population lives in an area covered by the LTE network(4G and 4G Plus). Despite the clear problems in terms of latency, which do not allow some operations such as gaming to be carried out in the best possible way, the cellular network is a consolidated reality in our country and in many areas it can guarantee much higher speeds than the traditional cable connection. In short, in some cases a router with support for 4G + SIM cards becomes indispensable. For this reason, TP-Link has created Archer MR600, currently sold on Amazon at a price of around 119

No new models are expected soon, but AMD is developing its new high-end GPU , in addition to the RDNA 2 architecture, NVIDIA instead is grappling with the Ampere architecture, which will be the basis of the upcoming 3000 series RTXs .

VIDEO CARDS UP TO 150 EUROS There has been no vast news in the field of entry level video cards, not least because it is difficult to beat the price-performance ratio of the Radeon RX 570 with 4 GB of RAM.

SURFACE DUO: THE OPERATING SYSTEM OF THE MICROSOFT FOLDING TO THE TEST

Image
After the Windows Phone project, which did not go exactly as hoped, Microsoft is ready to return to the smartphone market with its Surface Duo . Perhaps also by virtue of the past, the Redmond company is actually trying to never associate the product with the world of phones in official communications, defining it as a "dual-screen device" . However, we are actually talking about a smartphone with two screens. Another aspect that Microsoft has left only "guess" during the presentation of the Surface Duois the operating system used. It almost seems that the Redmond company is trying in some way to "omit", or in any case not to explicitly say through the official portals, that one of its most innovative products actually mounts Android. However, although Microsoft eventually decided to switch to the competing operating system, the Redmond company will carry out heavy customization of the OS, similar to what many other manufacturers have done.

From the 1950s to 2018, Crypto AG provided the technology to encrypt conversations to governments around the world . In the immediate aftermath of the war, the company, taking advantage of its Swiss nationality, had managed to position itself as a reliable supplier in a world still divided into factions. Crypto AG soon built a solid reputation, reaching 120 governments with its products, too bad that its purpose was not only profit, but also the collection of information , for a spy story worthy of the best James Bond film. Make money by stealing the information of enemies and allies Cypto AG's technology to encrypt conversations was used by secret services and officials in countries such as Iran and Libya. They were used by the Vatican secretariat of state, but also by major NATO powers, including Italy. What no one knew is that Crypto AG was actually secretly controlled by the CIA and the BND , the West German secret services. For years 120 governments have used communicati
