Anonymously surf the web across all your devices for only $60

May 28, 2017
Privacy is everything nowadays. It’s hotly debated online, in political forums, and huge corporations are regularly selling our information so that other corporations can, in turn, make money off of us as well. A lot of folks are OK with that and view it as “just the way the world works” and other folks are tinfoil and don’t even have a landline telephone. But you don’t have to belong to either extreme camp — you can meet privacy and online freedom right in the middle.

What you need is a VPN or “virtual private network”.

In an age where identity theft, cloud leaks, and more are made easier thanks to the internet, you can protect yourself and feel at ease online.

The Private Internet Access VPN allows you to use up to five devices at once without limiting…

How to setup your own VPN with macOS Server

May 28, 2017
Want a VPN but don’t want to trust a third-party service? Roll your own with macOS Server!

If you’ve decided you need a virtual private network (VPN) but you don’t want to pay for a third-party VPN service](/what-look-when-choosing-vpn-provider, then macOS Server can be a great alternative. It’s built on the macOS you already know and love and lets you quickly and easily get your very own VPN up and running.

Set up macOS Server

If you haven’t already done so, download and install macOS Server and optionally enable remote administration for easier setup.

Find your router’s internet facing IP Address

Before we begin with the actual setup of the VPN service, you’ll need to know your internet “co-ordinates” — your router’s IP address.

It’s quite easy to determine your current IP address simply by Googling: “What is my IP Address”. Most home users have what’s called a dynamic IP address, though. That means that your router’s IP address may change every so often.

Alleged iPhone 8 case renders show off vertical camera setup, no home button

May 28, 2017

Leaks of the upcoming iPhone 8 are becoming something of an everyday occurrence now, and from what we’ve seen so far, Apple seems to have already settled on a design: a 5.2-inch device with no physical front button and a vertical dual-camera setup on the back. And like it or not, a couple of new alleged renders of the device shows exactly that, but this time with protective cases wrapped around its frame.

The images, if based on the real thing, show the iPhone 8 in a number of angles, revealing a design very much in line with what we’ve seen from Apple …

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs LG G6 drop test: which is tougher?

May 28, 2017

Perhaps I should start this post with a warning: the video above may be painful to watch. And no, that’s not only because I clearly lack the charm and acting skills of Antonio Banderas. It’s because it shows how we break – on purpose – two of the top Android smartphones on the market, namely the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6. Yet that’s what it takes to get an idea of how much physical abuse they can take.
But maybe there’s no need for a “Spolier Alert!” notice before saying that both the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 break by the end …

Samsung Galaxy S8 sells “almost twice as fast” compared to S7

May 28, 2017

It would be an understatement to say that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are two successful products. According to the latest information, Samsung’s 2017 flagship duo has broken the corporation’s sales records, which contradicts earlier reports indicating that the S7/S7 edge achieved greater results. 
While Samsung does not officially release sales figures to the public, occasionally, we see a company representative disclosing sales numbers for certain high-profile devices like members of the Galaxy S line.
