The variety of cybersecurity threats makes it difficult to predict when you may become the next target on someone’s list. Hackers may target people who do not even have particularly sensitive information on their computers.
Macbooks are known for their reliability, and there are articles online about how Macs are not so prone to attract potential malware or viruses. Thus, these users fail to take the necessary measures to secure their computers.

Getting real-world feedback can make or break your success in gaming, and the sooner you can connect with your target audience the better.
By Gil Tov-Ly, VP Growth at Overwolf
A serious amount of technology goes into developing stable, functioning, and scalable gaming products. That holds true regardless if you’re creating gaming websites, apps, training programs, streamer tools, or something else entirely. Picking the right tech stack, however, can definitely be a daunting challenge for any founder in the gaming space who’s tasked with finding the perfect set of tools and frameworks.
The key question here is: what are the benefits of using pre-built tools and services for your tech stacks? …
Whatever happens in the next few days, America will remain divided. The only question is whether luck will let the country avert total disaster.
“We the People of the United States…”
The famous preamble to the U.S. Constitution, which goes on to state that its objective is to “form a more perfect union,” holds the key to why it is no exaggeration to say this country is fundamentally broken.
Everywhere, the “we” has been replaced by “me” to the extent where the biggest insult you can hurl at a large tranche of the American population is to suggest they hold socialist views. …

Artificial Intelligence has become a nearly ubiquitous term nowadays. A Deloitte survey revealed that most companies — a staggering 90 percent of those approached by the research and consultancy firm — consider cognitive technologies to be of crucial strategic importance, and over 80 percent of those were either already using it on some level or planning to implement it in the near future.
That is hardly surprising considering the dramatic efficiency savings that adoption can bring. According to Bill Eggers, executive director of Deloitte’s Center for Government Insights, in the U.S. alone, federal employees spend about 4.3 billion hours per year on a variety of mundane tasks such as recording information and handling. He estimates that currently available AI and robotic process automation could free up about 1.3 …
How new tech is set to reduce the huge cost of traffic congestion in the UK
By Dan Hubert, Founder and CEO of AppyWay
The process of trying to park on the streets — driving around looking for a space, watching for wardens and trying to meet a deadline, all with a stream of traffic right behind you — isn’t exactly one of life’s pleasures. Yet, a different, smarter, tech-enabled approach is possible and gaining ground in the UK and globally. It is set to help deliver smarter cities, cleaner inner-city environments and healthier urban economies too.
Drivers in the UK waste an average of four days a year (91 hours) looking for a parking space and their parking fines come to around £1.2 billion a year. The current approach to parking also contributes significantly to congestion and emissions in cities. And the overall loss to the UK economy is about £26 billion a year when you add up all the fines, missed revenue opportunities, the cost of congestion and delays, the environmental impact, opportunity costs and other societal costs. …

The Covid-19 global pandemic of 2020 brought degrees of loss and heartache into everyone’s lives in untold ways. The scale was beyond comprehension, whether you or your family were directly affected by it or if, like so many of us, you watched in horror as the daily news presented its drumbeat of infections, hospitalizations, and death.
As those tragic events unfolded during months of lockdowns and quarantine we grew more intimate with our digital worlds as they became a kind of sanctuary. We tapped into social media in new ways (albeit not always productive or healthy ones). We relied on online shopping for everything from toilet paper to oat milk to running shoes. …
Many businesses have been dragged kicking and screaming into the digital era, with some reluctant to accept that their future was always bound to be dictated by how they adapted to things like online payment systems. However, there are some sectors, such as online gaming, that have stayed ahead of the curve when it comes to adopting new fintech.
The rise of in-game payments
Online stores and websites offering services have always relied on some form of online payment system, yet only recently have new payment structures begun to be rolled out by savvy games and fintech developers alike.
A prime example of this is the online Battle Royale sensation Fortnite, which, despite being a free-to-play game both on mobile and PC/console, has found a way to integrate in-game purchases, with players spending big bucks on fancy avatars and skins for their weapons. Such purchases are also known as microtransactions. …
This month we have encrypted data storage, doggy water fountains, hi-res music streaming, smart note-taking systems, and audio sunglasses, so let’s jump in!
While a large segment of music lovers still cling to vinyl and CDs the younger generation and those who live an on-demand, minimalist, and on-the-move lifestyle have embraced streaming for most of their movie and music needs. By now we are all familiar with Spotify, iTunes, and the evolving Google options and they are great for those who like music, but might not love it. …
