Walmart to launch it’s own low-priced tablet, powered by Android 9.0 Pie

Walmart is planning to launch a low-cost, kid-friendly tablet under its ONN brand that will reportedly be the first tablet not by Samsung and Huawei to be powered by Android 9.0 Pie. Walmart confirmed that the tablet is in the works through spokeswoman Tara House, though she declined to reveal further details to Bloomberg. The device, which is said to be part of a broader redesign of Walmart’s electronics department, will be manufactured by a Chinese supplier. The price and release date of the low-cost ONN tablet has not yet been revealed,…

How to protect your Facebook credentials Technology 

How to protect your Facebook credentials

The Facebook and Instagram social networks went down for many hours Wednesday, and the causes were still being accessed as of press time. Still, this is a great opportunity to sit back and examine your own Facebook and Instagram credentials. How long has it been since you’ve changed your password? How strong is it? If you’re one of those people whose password is 123456, or your name followed by your address, or you have the same password spread across 75 different websites, you might want to take a moment and strengthen…

How to delete your Facebook without losing your friends and photos Technology 

How to delete your Facebook without losing your friends and photos

Casey Neistat wrote an article back in 2014 how he ‘fixed’ his Facebook by unfriending people who shared too much. I tried this in 2017… and it absolutely didn’t work! People still share way too much and every time I go on Facebook it feels like like a whole plague of negativity that’s trying to give me cancer. Just no. It’s not cool. Facebook really isn’t the ‘cool’ platform it was back in 2008. The thing is, I can’t just go and delete it. Having lived abroad, there’s a whole lot of…

Galaxy S10+ review: At 10th anniversary, Samsung shows it knows how to build a great phone Technology 

Galaxy S10+ review: At 10th anniversary, Samsung shows it knows how to build a great phone

That is the most popular question, by far, I received when people saw the new 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ I have been testing for the last week and a half. No, this phone is not foldable. But it also doesn’t start at nearly $2,000, either, though at around half that price it isn’t exactly cheap. While it lacks the flashiness, or risks, of Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Fold foldable there is still plenty to love in the 10th anniversary Galaxy, which goes on sale alongside its smaller, cheaper S10e and S10 siblings…

Feeling privacy conscious? Here’s how to see what data WhatsApp has on you Technology 

Feeling privacy conscious? Here’s how to see what data WhatsApp has on you

Ever since the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) came into force, companies have been obliged to send you a copy of your data whenever you ask for it (or at least, make it easily accessible). Facebook has built a mechanism for that in each of its products, and WhatsApp is one of its most popular. The firm has added an option to let users know exactly what data the firm has collected on them directly from the app. While extracting the data doesn’t quite have the same instant gratification as sending a text…

7 security tips to stop apps from stealing your data

We regularly see news about ways our personal information has been compromised after a data breach — and apps can be part of the problem. Apps have been unmasked as malware, used to commit click fraud or to sell your data to third parties in recent years. You might feel nervous every time you download a new app. How can you trust that it won’t steal your data? Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell at face value if an app has darker motives and no protection is foolproof in today’s world of ever-evolving technology. An…

Airbnb, American Airlines, Dexcom & others getting Siri Shortcuts

Several prominent apps have gained Siri Shortcuts compatibility this week, and more prominent names are coming between March and April. The recent additions include American Airlines, Dexcom, Caviar, Merriam-Webster, and Spectre. Upgrades are forthcoming from Airbnb, Drop, ReSound, and Smarter. Of those Airbnb is likely likely to be the most significant, for instance letting people bring up their Airbnb directions, check-in time, and Wi-Fi password with a single Siri command. Siri Shortcuts were introduced alongside iOS 12 in September, but are still relatively uncommon. Some of the first apps to come onboard were Tile, Pandora, Overcast, and PCalc. The feature…

Wi-Fi 6 explained: What you need to know about the next generation of wireless networking Technology 

Wi-Fi 6 explained: What you need to know about the next generation of wireless networking

Wi-Fi naming is getting a makeover — and it’s not a moment too soon. Until now, Wi-Fi standards have been an alphanumeric soup with designations like 802.11g, 802.11n and 802.11ac. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the letters didn’t seem to “mean” anything. Is 11g faster than 11ac, just because it’s higher in the alphabet? Actually, no — it’s slower. That’s why the Wi-Fi Alliance, the industry consortium that manages wireless networking standards, is rebranding the different generations of Wi-Fi. The newest, fastest version of Wi-Fi will be 802.11ax, but you are…
