These days, it isn't rare to take our mobile devices with us everywhere. Mobile phones and tablets have expanded their abilities at incredible rates. Now, the power under our fingertips is vaster than the technology that sent the Apollo missions to the moon. That is an incredible leap forward that, along with the Internet's global community has completely changed the way that humans interact and live.


The digital age has made people available 24/7, no matter where they are. People can communicate using cutting edge chat-apps that even 15 years ago would have required a powerful desktop PC (remember AOL?). Now, we can chat to someone in Indonesia from Seattle at the drop of the hat - and then be chatting to someone in Ukraine moments later - all while waiting for a train (thanks to 3G or public WiFi).


Digital Drawbacks & Technological Threats


Sadly, along with the ability and will to be connected, also comes some very serious drawbacks. Modern problems. Digital threats that in some ways make people more vulnerable than ever before in history. Being connected leaves a trail and these digital footprints code for who we are like digital DNA. The data we create is highly personal and for that reason that data is incredibly valuable and people must seek to protect it.


What we actually find is a decrease in the level of scrutiny we apply to our online presence. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and the plethora of other social media platforms are all there for us to use, but that comes at a cost. We share our intimate moments. We share where we are, when we're away from home, when we're going on holiday, and often leave very easy breadcrumbs on exactly what we're doing, and when we're out, and where to find us. We share details that we wouldn't share with friends or family face to face, but saving them in a public forum is acceptable for millions of us. These posts, and images stay there forever. We think so little of our own private information that we give away lots of our information for free, without even thinking about it.


The inter-connectivity of devices also throws up additional concerns. We login to everything, on everything. Our phones have Facebook, our Facebook is used as a logon tool for many other services. We input our date of birth to gain access, our e-mails, our interests, likes, hobbies, names, friends, and more at an increasing rate. Our entire lives are online somewhere. Where people feel more at home with their mobile devices, we also login to our banks, and provide our financial information. The level of trust that we put into our devices, and the amount of digital data that we're inputting to those devices is increasing, drastically.


Governments, Internet Service Providers, advertisers, corporations, organizations, hackers, and cybercriminals, all want a piece of that pie. The technology has crept up on us quickly and only more recently have people come to accept that data should be considered a form of currency.


Whether it be to protect data from cybercriminals - or the government - the only way to be truly secure is for people to take control of their own digital footprints. Due to the value of personal data, everyone should make efforts to protect it. The sad truth is, that because that data is so valuable everyone is trying to get at it, but fewer are trying to protect it.


Personal cybersecurity


The first thing that people must realize is that mobile devices are just as vulnerable, if not more so, than PCs. In addition, the gap between Apple and Android has closed and now it is common to find malware for both. In fact, in some ways the Open Source nature of Android (as opposed to Apple's proprietary closed source environment) is allowing for encryption apps to pop up at a faster rate: things change.


These days, malware, viruses, spyware, and trojans all offer hackers methods for intercepting data - and their availability online to ‘script kiddies' means that cybercrime is at epidemic levels. The result is an elevated risk of fraud, loss of earnings - and perhaps worst of all - identity theft. For these reason, people need to take personal cybersecurity seriously and must seek to protect themselves and their devices. The most basic step is to make sure that the apps we install on our devices are secure, and that we always update them with the latest security patches and updates.


Third party and untrusted apps might be tempting, but the reality is that they could be malevolent. For this reason, people should to stick to trusted apps from known vendors and app stores. Even on official distributors such as Google Play Store it is possible to come across malicious apps.


For this reason people should take extreme care when downloading apps. Before you agree to install the app, check the permissions carefully. If the app wants access to things it doesn't really need then think twice before installing it. Why does a torch app want access to your GPS location and all of your contacts? If the requests don't seem reasonable simply don't download the app.


Remember that data is a currency, so if an app says it is ‘free' maybe you are actually paying with your data? In some cases, it might be worth paying a pound for a torch app that only requires access to the light on your phone, than to accept the free one that wants access to your entire device.


The Big Public WiFi Threat


Alongside smart devices, which allow us to be connected non-stop, in recent years there has been an explosion in the availability of public internet hotspots. Those hotspots provide high speed connectivity when people are out and about. The advantage of logging onto public connections is that people get to save their mobile data (if they have data limits).


What many people might not realize, however, is that public WiFi can be a security risk. When connected to public networks people's devices are vulnerable to having their data intercepted by another user that is logged onto the same router. This problem is the same on any WiFi - including shared home networks - so if you live in a big house where a lot of people regularly take the password from the router - you could also be at risk. The best solution for the problem is a VPN service.


A VPN service encrypts all the data between a phone, or tablet, and the VPN's servers. The result is that nobody on a public WiFi (or even on a fake hotspot controlled by a cybercriminal) can ‘sniff' the subscriber's data, as that data is encrypted.


The best VPNs provide strong military grade OpenVPN encryption, but many don't. With different levels of protection, and different services providing different benefits (and disadvantages), what you're specifically looking for can change the VPN service that you are looking for. Do you want faster speed, but are willing to accept a smaller number of geo locations, or do you need security at all costs, including speed and price? As such, it's important to do research about which VPN to use.


Other Levels of Protection


McAfee, Norton, AVG. At the launch of the internet, it's rare that individuals would have been desperate for anti-virus. There simply weren't as much malicious code flying around, but now, with an always-on internet antivirus is no longer seen as that "additional level of security that might sometimes help", or for those who delve more often into virus rife areas of the net. Now, things are different. It's rare for new computers, and new operating systems to not include some form of anti-virus, even for a month's trial while you set your computer up ensuring that you're not infected at this vital stage of life of your computer.


Not only is antivirus an integral part of your computer system, but firewalls are also included in the same package to help keep your computer safe. The problem arises that we're using our PCs, and our Laptops less and less, and using our mobile phones, and tablets more and more. There's a huge disconnect between the level of security on our larger devices, and our mobile phones, but we're still storing our intimate data on unprotected devices.


This could be a bit more understandable if protective services weren't easily available for mobile devices. Antivirus, firewalls, and password protection are just as available for devices, and the larger firms often provide multi-device deals, permitting several devices to be covered by the same services.


As well as more digital based protection, there's a large amount of physical ways to protect the data on our phones as well. Phone manufacturers are constantly in an evolutionary arms race with chancers who find new back-door entrances into devices. This has led to an increase in the amount of protection required to unlock a phone. Rather than just a pin, we now have patterns, passwords, swipe to unlock, fingerprint scans, google sign-ins. These simple methods help to keep that data secure from prying hands.


Our data, and our lives are much more mobile than they were before. Keeping up with that level of change is not only important: it's imperative.


"Apple -  Watch Sport" (CC BY-SA 2.0) by Yasunobu Ikeda


Wearable technology makes an ideal gift regardless of the occasion. Whether the recipient is a sports fan, tech buff, or fashionista, there are smartwatches and fitness trackers for most budgets. Finding the right balance of style, price, and features can be a chore so here are a few suggestions for the different people in your life:


The Sports Fan


Tech giant Apple, recently announced the latest addition to its wearable range, the Apple Watch Series 2. Built with fitness at its core, the latest watchOS is faster and smoother, and allows the device to operate more like a timepiece instead of a stunted smartphone. It's also waterproof. At £369 though, it's pricey.


If you insist on making the Apple Watch your gym buddy, buy the Nike+ version; it's lighter than the Series 2, better ventilated, and comes in a range of bright, sporty colours.


Alternatively, try the FitBit Blaze. At £144.99, the Blaze was the most popular wearable device in a poll conducted by Voucherbox where value for money was concerned. It's oddly shaped and did nothing to revolutionise the FitBit range but it comes feature-packed with a heart-rate monitor, GPS, and built-in workouts.


For smaller budgets, there's also the FitBit Charge 2 at £118.40. The popular Garmin Forerunner 325 is more expensive than both FitBits (£232) but runners may appreciate the emphasis on their favourite activity.

The Fashionista


The Garmin Vivomove (£146) and the Huawei Watch (£239) are perhaps the closest you're going to get to classic design in an affordable smartwatch. However, if price is no object, the Tag Heuer Connected can be yours for £1,100. It's nothing too special - the transflective LCD screen is quite poor in comparison to the display on Huawei and Apple models - but it's a definite icebreaker at parties.


The Samsung Gear S2 is another option at £252. Visually, there's nothing particularly exciting about the Samsung (it has a more ‘sporty' feel than the Garmin and the Huawei) and something like the Motorola Moto 360 (£192 on Amazon.co.uk) is probably a safer option for a formal event, depending on the finish you choose.

The Budget Buyer


The less expensive wearables tend to be fitness trackers almost exclusively, and lack features such as GPS and informative screens. However, with prices on previously premium models falling, there's no reason why a budget wearable should feel like a consolation prize. The caveat is that you may need to choose between features, price or looks on some models.


If you're looking for something stylish with a low profile, the Jawbone Up2 at around £30 is a good-looking option. The Jawbone UpMOVE at £25 is a little heavy on the plastic but includes all the features of its bigger brother, with the exception of calorie tracking.


The UK-only Archon at £29.99 is arguably one of the more sophisticated budget wearables out there. It's similar to the Jawbone Up2 feature-wise but works as a smartphone companion too, letting you know when you've got an incoming call. The Razer Nabu X (£49.99) can also receive smartphone notifications but it lacks a screen.



What is a VPN?


VPN stands for virtual Private Network and irrespective of the OS or the device that's using it, the primary function of a VPN remains the same; to provide anonymity to the user and hide his/her actual location. In order to achieve this, the internet activities of the user are routed through servers in different locations around the globe to generate a proxy IP address. What this means is that if you access a website while using a VPN, the site will recognize your location based on the proxy IP address, as generated by a server situated in a completely different part of the world. If you are sitting in the US, a VPN can fool the websites in recognizing you as a user from Russia or vice versa.


What Is It Good For?


Quite simply put, using a VPN to connect to the internet makes everything you do safer and more secure due to the anonymity it provides. The websites you visit, the private data you exchange with others and just about any other activity remains anonymous and no one can see where you are actually logging in from, even when it's a public Wi-Fi connection. This also removes all region-locking restrictions from a service like Netflix, giving you unlimited access to all content from regions around the globe. Although, keep in mind that Netflix is known to block certain VPN services.


Why Do You Need VPN on Your Android Device?


While the Android OS has become a lot safer from its initial days when it was launched, it still continues to be the most affected mobile platform in terms of hacker attacks. If you plan to use your Android phone on public Wi-Fi connections and would like to keep your browsing habits personal, you will need a VPN service from the best providers. Besides, all the region-unlocking advantages that comes with subscribing to a VPN holds true for Android apps as well.


What are the Disadvantages of Using a VPN on Android?


The biggest disadvantage of using a Virtual Private Network on any platform is that your internet speed will slow down a bit. This is an unavoidable side-effect of the encryption and rerouting process for which the service is used in the first place. Unfortunately, in China, North Korea, Vietnam, Myanmar, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Tunisia, it's illegal to use a VPN due to the authoritative structure of the laws that govern these nations.


Even free VPN services do provide a bit of privacy protection but their services are neither long term, nor reliable enough. We recommend using a paid service, especially if you take your privacy seriously enough.

live-roulette-technology-2


Without modern technology, online casinos cannot exist. When the first online gambling program was driven on the Internet, the quality of the sound and graphics left much to be wanted. 2D graphics always took to burden due to the slow Internet back then. This is why several players still chose to play at physical casinos.

 

This scenario has changed remarkably over the last decade or so. Nowadays, numerous players even prefer playing online due to the quality of the games provided and, particularly, the opportunity to play live roulette or other table games with a live dealer.

 

Picking the casino with the best online live choices for playing roulette is not a simple task. Luckily, there is lots of information to be found in this article and I hope it will help you make a choice. But, finding out more about the role of live roulette technology and how such online casinos work is also essential.

 

Live casinos are a nearly new form of gambling, which describes the activity that takes place in the traditional casino venues. Though the player is allowed to place a bet from the convenience of their home, and according to people with experience of the matter, live casinos offer a genuine payback interest to players. While some demand that only slots have a better RTP, others think the table games to bring higher advantages despite the fixed house edge. Numbers show that overall, live casinos and brick and mortar casinos have nearly the same payback interests.

 

What makes the live casinos so interesting is that the games are controlled in real time by a human dealer and players are allowed to take part in the game through a console on their system. In case they have a problem or need help, live chat is among the useful functions.

 

Live casinos that act to be reliable and famous on a global level use software of the heads in the gaming business such as Playtech, Microgaming, Realtime Gaming.

 

Despite being universally popular among players, live games need the casino to make a significant investment in staff and technology. An average casino studio usually employs a camera operator, croupiers, an information technology administrator and a pit manager. Specifically, the liabilities associated with the live dealer casinos are among the leading causes for the small number of games they provide. Most of them have blackjack, baccarat, and roulette available. In contrast, the cost of going virtual games is much economical.

 

The physical activities made by the dealer are turned into data used by the software or to be more accurate, by the aka Optical Character Recognition (OCR). The latter allows the player to take a role in the casino action without even seeing a difference between the land-based casino and the live dealer casino. Also, the outcomes of the games are decided by a human instead of being an automatic process.

 

Roulette Game and Modern Technology

 

Designed back in France during the 18th century, roulette has come to a long process. The following of the table game with a large wheel and a small ball is probably because it is quite simple to learn, play and understand.

 

Roulette has become one of the most participated games at online casinos. There are several variants of modern roulette game such as American, European and French (we will discuss it later). The online variants of the game were invented so that these would be even easier to understand.

 

How Does Online Roulette Work?

 

The basic rules of a roulette game are based on placing bets on one number, a group of numbers, an odd/even number or red/black. This implements to both traditional and online live roulette. Once all bets are set, the wheel positioned on the roulette table is rotated, and the small ball inside begins flowing. The number where it eventually arrives is the winning one. The complete layout of the betting field, as well as the kinds of the bet, are the equivalent for old-fashioned and online roulette.

 

In the case of traditional roulette, the ball settles in a pocket when the wheel falls force and finally stops rotating. For online roulette games though, the outcome of the spin is planned by an RNG (random number generator). This suggests that the roulette software determines upon a random number using advanced algorithms. Technically observed, the ball falls as randomly as with a physical roulette table.

 

One of the most notable differences within the traditional game and online roulette game is the use of advanced technology. Top gaming organizations such as Real-time Gaming, Microgaming, and Playtech have been expanding and upgrading the software applied for online casino games over the times.

 

The advantage drawn along by live roulette technology is the design of the online roulette games. It is much simpler for players to keep a record of their bets gratitude to the digital representation. When you play traditional roulette, you have to write all the things down or try to memorize every bet you set. Further, bets can be placed immediately with a few clicks or taps on the betting table.

 

Following are the types of live roulette game:

 

1.     American Roulette - American Roulette is almost as famous as European roulette and has most of the same controls and strategies. The game differs in one crucial approach, though, which is that an American Roulette board includes an additional space - the double zero, which gives the house a slightly higher edge than in other forms.

 

2.     European Roulette - It is a single zero variant of the game and the one you're easiest with. The single zero implies that the game has a lower house edge, so you are possible to get better interest on your bet. Several live casinos all offer this, the most popular type of the game.

 

 

3. French Roulette - French and European live roulette receive a similar 37-compartment wheel, though all the figures on the board are painted red in the Gallic form. This is a concern of aesthetics, as some of the numbers are still supposed black. There is also the continued design of the "La Partage" rule, whereby a player suffers only half their cash if the ball arrives on an unmarked zero.

 

The Concept of the Game

 

The main idea is that a real dealer spins a real roulette wheel under an HD camera from one of several casino workrooms around the globe. You place your bet with your mouse, by ticking on the chip name and then on the betting plate. Once the spin is finished, your bets are automatically established by the software, and you are set to bet on the next spin.

 

Which workroom you play at will depend on your place and the casino site you pick. Some casinos are enormous for their branded tables. Most serving tables from popular companies, who get the economy of system work.

 

It assists with link speeds to be near your studio, so you'll notice them in Central America, Europe, and Asia - each looking after several goes. To a lesser amount, this helps keep the games going 24 hours too. Beautiful female croupiers are a big draw, though there are lots of male dealers too.

 

There are numerous options while you play. The main difference with the live casino games is that you have a one-to-one chat feature. You can use a chat window to talk to either other players or the dealer. Dealers will communicate by speaking. You can also change the camera viewpoint, view the history of the last spins or your previous bets and call support system hit any technical glitches.  A point to keep in mind is that the spins are clocked. Unlike the virtual games, if you do not take your bet on in time, then the game proceeds without you. If you are used to being the one to determine when the wheel spins, then you'll require to get used to these features. Since numerous people are betting on the same spin, there is no requirement for you to play every time and you are appreciated to watch if you like.

 

Where to Place the Bets?

 

Most roulette betting options are simply labeled - you can select single numbers, groups of numbers (1st 12, for instance), black or red, various columns, odds or evens, etc.

 

A large variety of split bet options is also possible depending on where you place your chips on the strings on the table. For single number bet or the group of numbers, your chips go in the center of the cases.

 

Placing your bet on the strings provides several more choices:

 

•    On a string at either end of a row = bets on all numbers in the series.

 

•    On a string between two numbers = breaks your bet over two numbers.

 

•    On the crossing between two rows = bets on all numbers in the two series

 

•    On the crossing between numbers = bets on all the numbers involved

 

When to Place the Bets?

 

Between each spin, after the table is cleaned of winnings and failures, you'll be given approximately a minute to bet on the table. You can continue betting till the dealer declares that betting is stopped, like "No more bets." This is after the wheel has been turned and the ball has been thrown into it. You can wait till the ball is in action before betting, but never place any more bets on the table, when the dealer has declared that betting is done.

 

Key Advantages of Playing Live Roulette

 

Copying the live casino adventure. If you want to assume like you are playing at a real casino (a casino in Las Vegas), the live roulette reality is undoubtedly for you.

 

The European Roulette game is the model for Live Roulette, meaning the house edge is almost low, and the possibilities of winning are relatively high.

 

Regular Players are usually identified by good live dealers; enabling the player to have excellent discussions or maybe even attempt and convince the dealer to help the ball land in their favor!

 

Communicating with the dealer through the chat window can make the game more enjoyable and friendly. Dealers will usually speak to you as you are playing, and you will be ready to type something into the chat that they will be able to understand. While this can take a little longer than traditional online casino games, it combines a great deal of fun to the gaming experience.

 

By socializing with a real croupier, you can learn a little more as to how roulette works, as they will generally do an excellent work of describing what is going on and how things will happen. This will turn into better practices if you play in a traditional brick-and-mortar casino down the street.

 

Summing-up

 

Live casinos are a modification which enables players to enjoy their favorite table game at the convenience of their home in real time with real dealers. There is no call anymore for the players to consume themselves from hours of traveling until they reach their target and then find an excellent roulette table. All of this can now be quickly executed whenever and wherever they want, and the experience they will get from the game will be just as appealing, maybe even more.

 

The advanced technologies in use can offer players with the opportunity to observe the whole gaming process, see how the cards are distributed in front of them in games such as Blackjack or how the wheel is turned when Roulette is played. These activities are implemented in real time by trained dealers who have experienced extensive training and education to be able to give players the best pleasant action. Further, this way not only a very high level of enthusiasm is accomplished but also any difficulties regarding the integrity of the game are gone. Live roulette is one of the very entertaining and lucrative table games.

 

Play live roulette table game - I doubt that you will be disappointed.
