Verizon GizmoWatch Kids Smart Watch Phone
Parents are always trying to figure out a good balance between watching over their kids and giving them space to grow. Many opt to get their kids a cell phone, but there are those like myself that are trying to resist that temptation. We have looked at a few options recently, like the TickTalk 3 and the Republic Wireless Relay, and now we are going to take a closer look at Verizon's option; the GizmoWatch.

Difference Between Zigbee and Z-Wave
With wireless home security systems, you'll be able to come across the technologies or home automation standards known as Z-Wave and Zigbee. Just what are Z-Wave and Zigbee and how are they similar and different from one another? Both Z-Wave and Zibgee are known as mesh networks which mean that every node integrated in that system will act as a wireless source of data and as a repeater as well.

Lynktec Bolt Smart Car Mount and Qi Wireless Charger :: Posted On December 18, 2018
Lynktec Bolt Smart Car Mount and Qi Wireless Charger
Wireless charging has been around for quite a while, but it hasn't had much market penetration. This is starting to change as more and more mobile devices offer it, and most support some version of the Qi standard. While there are numerous options out there for home chargers, the field for automobile chargers has been a bit more limited. Recently I received a press release for a new charger by Lynktec called the Bolt Smart Car Mount & Qi Wireless Charger.

The Importance of Phishing Awareness Training
Most people think that they can spot a scam from a mile away but as users become more educated and wary, online phishing techniques are becoming more and more sophisticated. Instead of relying on gut instincts alone, many individuals are turning to phishing awareness training to keep themselves safe.

So, What Is Phishing Anyway?

Phishing is the process of laying traps for individuals online. These traps can be targeted to a certain type of person or can be broad but they always use manipulation to gain access to personal information. The days of online phishing began with e-mail scams - the most notable involving foreign dignitaries and a "small loan" but they have come a long way since then. Other types of phishing include phone calls or approaches on social media. In general, these advances cast a very wide net, hoping to catch just about anyone. More complex scams use details like names, along with personal information and frequented institutions to make themselves seem more legitimate and persuade individuals to give up sensitive information such as credit card details or financials. This more personalized approach is referred to as spear phishing.

While some phishing attacks come directly, more advanced methods can be concealed in plain sight. While programming and coding can be a mystery to most, these can be a hackers' best friend. A hole in site security can put tons of users at risk from con-men and other malicious attacks.

How To Avoid Getting Caught

With internet scammers coming out of every direction, it can be difficult to navigate around them. All it takes is one instance of letting your guard down and all of your information is on display. Luckily, there are companies out there who employ experts, available to teach the ins and outs of internet safety. While many phishing scams are carefully concealed, there are still signs that you can look for. Phoney URLs are a giant red flag while domain names and the demand for personal information are all markers for serious concern and a speedy exit. If you are concerned with being ensnared in a trap, trust the professionals to show you the right way to protect your identity and your bank account.
ASUS PRIME Z390-A LGA 1151 Motherboard
Sometimes less is more. We typically work with a lot of motherboards that fall into the more is more category and some that have a high price that can't easily be justified by most people. The ASUS PRIME Z390-A seems to lean towards less is more. On paper the Z390-A seems to have a lot going for it and is light on fluff. How does it stack up? hardocp.com

CHERRY MX BOARD 1.0 BACKLIGHT Mechanical Keyboard
Thanks to the included MX Brown switches, this keyboard is ideal for typing documents, by offering a tactile bump; it does not offer the RGB features of modern gaming keyboards, so it would fit better in offices where you perform your day-to-day activities. We are getting the full n-key rollover functionality (all keys are being read at the same time), while anti-ghosting makes sure that there will be no input errors. Despite the lack of software to drive the LEDs, we can always control these via the dedicated function keys and multimedia buttons are available for the user as well. madshrimps.be

Silverstone Tundra TD02 CPU Liquid Cooling Heatsink
Silverstone's Tundra TD02 CPU liquid cooler offers up some refreshing design elements for the computer enthusiast looking to assemble a system that stands out from the crowd. In place of the standard black heat exchanger we find something vaguely reminiscent of a Mac, or a Star Wars set - grey anodized aluminum wraps around the heat exchanger while white plastic bezels blend in with the white FEP coolant tubing to give a very spacy look. frostytech.com

Quite a lot has changed since then, but one thing remains the same, as gamers we want a headset that not only sounds good, but is very comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions. Today we are checking out the latest Razer gaming headset, which is the Kraken Tournament Edition. This comes as an upgrade to the Kraken 7.1 V2, which came out in late 2016.
