datAshur Pro review
Posted on 4-Apr-2017 15:29 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.

Posted on 21-Aug-2016 17:06 Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

I have received a Meizu M3 Note smartphone from PB Tech for review and it's fair to say it's a very impressive device - for the middle-tier price range and superb service by PB Tech (more on this later) this is an excellent choice for our market.

It is a common thing: you have a great set of playlists in your Spotify account and want to share this during a party or when meeting friends... But your smartphone is not a speaker and the sound doesn't make justice to the brilliance of your selection.
