Samsung T5 Portable SSD review
Posted on 9-Mar-2018 12:50Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

External drives are very common - mostly people won't put much into deciding what to buy. I myself have repurposed 2.5" SSD by using an external adapter case. But reviewing the Samsung T5 Portable SSD made me realise some of the missing features. Comments (Comments)

Logitech Spotlight review
Posted on 21-Nov-2017 15:28Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

It doesn't matter if you're a professional presenter or not - when you're in front of an audience everything counts. Your posture, your attention focused on the audience, your delivery will all be considered by the attendees when they answer those end-of-conference survey asking, on a scale of one to ten, how would you rate Presenter John Doe?

Trend Micro Home Network Security review
Posted on 29-Oct-2017 11:52Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Malware, spyware, botnets, ransomware... These are all terms you come acrosss when reading about technology security. While you can more or less easily protect your laptops and smartphones against these nasties, the advent of connected devices - security cameras, connected thermostats and smoke alarms, smart TVs and other smart gadgets - brings new vulnerabilities which we may not always be aware of, increasing the risk of something bad happening in your network.

datAshur Pro review
Posted on 4-Apr-2017 15:29Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

As far as data security goes, most USB flash drives are rated pretty-low. You see, security can only be strong when it's easy to use and people won't go through lots of procedures to get a half-good experience - even when data security is at risk. This is not the case with the datAshur Pro. Comments (Comments)
