Why You Should Be Using a Password Manager

their h  unknowingly Every few weeks, we hear the news that another major corporation and their website has been hacked, just last week we heard about Equifax being hacked and data on millions of users being compromised.

Review: Uhans U200

Review: Uhans U200

A couple of months ago I decided to bite the bullet and get rid of my Windows Phone and switch back to Android, I donated my Nokia Lumia 930 to my son.  While I liked Windows Phone, and I do prefer the GUI, there were just too many niggling issues and bugs and those few "must have" apps that either did not exist or the WP version sucked, and this is not going to change due to the tiny user base.

Anyone from my generation or older will have heard of Dreamland. At the height of its popularity in the 1960s, when it attracted more than two million thrill-seekers a year, Dreamland boasted a wall of death run by legendary stunt motorcyclist Yvonne Stagg, which was covered in Anderson’s unsettling 1953 documentary film, O Dreamland, with its terrifying animatronic electric chair and Haunted Snail ride.
