France and Germany latest countries to want magical backdoors in encryption

The recent NSA hack just proved to the world that no system is hack-proof if attackers have what it takes to break the access door. Regardless of whatever protections guarded that NSA server, hackers found a security hole to get in and steal critical documents. The same thing could happen to encrypted services that would feature a backdoor for law enforcement.

But governments around the world still think they’d be able to handle such terrifying scenarios, with France and Germany being the latest nations looking to gain access to private encrypted messages exchanged over the internet by terror plot suspects. More →

2017 iPhone OLED Screen

Samsung will be the iPhone 8’s biggest fan

Samsung will be the iPhone 8’s biggest fan

Apple will not come out with a brand new iPhone redesign this year, that much seems to be crystal clear. But an increasing number of reports claims that at least one of the 2017 iPhones will bring over radical changes. Specifically, Apple is expected to launch a Galaxy S7 edge-like curved iPhone 7 successor next year that will feature a flexible OLED display, a first for the iPhone maker. A new report from Asia indicates that Samsung is already preparing for that rumored iPhone 8 (or whatever Apple calls it), but not to fight against it with a novel Galaxy S7 successor of its own. Instead, Samsung might become the biggest fan of that new iPhone. More →

Stranger Things Season 2

We finally know something important about ‘Stranger Things’ season 2

We finally know something important about ‘Stranger Things’ season 2

One of the stranger things in Netflix’s hugely popular Stranger Things series is that not many people in the town seemed to care about what happened to Barb, the second child who went missing in a matter of days. I mean sure, everyone was relentlessly looking for Will, but when Barb went missing only a few people noticed and cared, including Nancy. And make no mistake, Barb’s disappearance is very important for the series. Without Barb disappearing, Nancy would have never started her investigation, and without Nancy, there’s no figuring out how that monster hunts. Season 2 will do Barb justice – but hey, some spoilers follow below, so you should avoid them if you haven’t seen the show yet. More →

The iPhone 7 will obliterate the Galaxy Note 7 and every other smartphone

There are just a few weeks left before Apple finally unveils this year’s new iPhones, and we already think we know what the company has in store for us. By all accounts, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are going to be so much more exciting than you think. Disregarding all the leaks and rumors, and looking at how Apple does things when it comes to the iPhone, I can tell you a few things about the iPhone 7. It’ll have better cameras and a better CPU/GPU than any previous iPhone – and these are two things Apple always insists on while presenting a new iPhone. And while Apple might not make this point on stage, I’ll bet you a rare Pokemon that the iPhone 7 will be the fastest smartphone in town this year. What makes me so sure? It’s all because of that iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy Note 7 speed test video we saw yesterday. More →
