The new Pebble Time is set to bring colour to the smartwatch pioneers that smashed Kickstarter records and they’ve done it again; raising $1 million in funding in just 49 minutes (previously held by Android-based game console Ouya, which raised $1 million in 2 days and 19 hours).

It’s your average adware (or advertising-supported software) that was designed to place advertisements into your web browser. The problem is that the software also intercepts encrypted traffic, which opens up your computer to man-in-the-middle attacks (which work similar to […]

SYMLIS Sparrow flash drive offers extra functionality

It’s fairly common to see a flash drive on someone’s key-chain these days. With memory prices dropping massively over the last decade having a few GB constantly at hand has become quite a wise decision given the low cost.

The Sparrow not only offers storage space (choices of 16, 32 and 64 GB) but you can also use it to charge your device and transfer files. It’s no news that smartphone batteries just haven’t kept up […]
