Whether you are trying to pay a bill, order something online or just trying your luck at an internet casino, safety of the payment system is of paramount importance. A single mistake can result in phishers and scammers stealing your financial details, which could prove to be very costly. So, how do you make sure that your financials are safe while spending money online? By sticking with reliable websites and trusted payment systems. How do you make sure they are safe options? That's exactly what we are going to discuss next with the help of the following points.


Safety Begins at Home


The computer you are using to surf the internet is the first thing that you need to secure. Make sure that the OS running on it is original first because that's the most important aspect of cyber safety. Next, you need to install a good antivirus software with real-time internet protection. This will give you continuous protection even if you are led towards a phishing page or a site that's deemed unsafe. The antivirus will detect and stop suspicious activities automatically and warn you of the danger immediately.


Use e-Wallets


The main advantage that electronic wallets have over using credit cards and debit cards directly is the fact that they keep your card information safe. For example, internet casinos are a hotspot for cyber criminals, so they are always looking to phish card info from unsuspecting users and that's precisely why online casino PayPal payment option is the safest choice to make. PayPal being one of the world's most popular and also one of the most reliable online payments system, your financial info remains safe with them and you don't ever have to risk giving away your valuable financial information on a scam site or phishing page. The best part is that almost everyone accepts PayPal these days!


Do Your Research


If you are going to play at an unknown internet casino or shop at an ecommerce site that you know little of, use Google. See what other people are saying about the site and go through user experiences to get an idea of what to expect. Some sites even have a trust score for users to check.


Check the Link/URL


The best and often the only way to avoid an active phishing attack is to check the URL in your browser or mail. For example, does it say http://amazon.com or does it say http://amazon.us/gb5hgy/login-id? Most authentic websites do not use a string of random alphabets at the end like that and Amazon USA is just called Amazon.com, so there's no amazon.us domain. Beware of little details like that at all times.


The rule of thumb is, if something looks out of place, then that's because it is! Don't take chances with your finances online and be safe by following the few simple precautions mentioned here.


Nokia Android

 

Rumors about Nokia coming back to the smartphone market is confirmed. It's True, Nokia will make a strong return to the Market with a line-up of Android smartphones Next year (2016).

 

Nokia sold its device business to Microsoft a year ago and it signed a non-compete clause preventing the company from producing smartphones under the Nokia brand until December 31, 2015 and feature phones under the Nokia brand for a decade.

 

Nokia N1

 

Nokia used wisely these non-compete clauses and outed the powerful Nokia N1 tablet early this year. The N1 is designed by Nokia, including its Z Launcher for Android, but the rights for the branding, manufacturing, marketing and distributions were licensed to Foxconn.

 

The President of Nokia China confirmed Nokia is working on Android powered smartphones, which will be probably manufactured in factories in Sichuan, China and will be launched in 2016. He also sheds some light on company's future the Nokia's R&D center will permanently relocate to Sichuan, China.

The Galaxy S7 is still going hot and we already have rumors circulating about next year's Samsung Galaxy S8. Among these rumors, the most popular one seems to be concerned with the display of the flagship smartphone. It speculates that the S8 may feature an Ultra High Definition 4K Super AMOLED panel. Considering that the display will only be a 5.5-inch one, some may ask if it is even necessary to make it 4K, and they would probably be right. There's a limit to what the human eye can perceive and on a 5.5-inch display, UHD might just be overkill. Nonetheless, the UHD resolution would definitely improve VR experience on the S8 and we are sure that is the main reason as to why Samsung might opt for such a high resolution display in the first place.



This assumption or rumor originated after Samsung showcased one of its 5.5-inch Ultra High Definition panels at the SID tradeshow, 2016. Since it has been predicted by analysts that Samsung will start manufacturing these displays on an industrial scale in a matter of months, it would actually not be very surprising to see the panel making its debut with the S8. There is also the trend of Samsung endowing its flagship smartphones with a higher resolution display after every two years and it has already been two years since the S-series started sporting QHD panels (S6 and S7).

We are pretty much used to seeing Qualcomm manufacturing the flagship grade 8xx series of Snapdragon processors every year for a while now, but rumors are indicating that this scenario could change in 2017. Samsung might just be exclusively manufacturing the upcoming SD 830 SoC for Qualcomm next year. The same rumor also reported that this new chip would be based on a 10nm FoFLP process, which is a new cooperative venture by Samsung and Qualcomm. This new Fan-out Panel Level Package (FoFLP) process will make printed circuit boards unnecessary for the package substrate. The advantages will include better battery life and thinner frames along with making I/O ports much easier to put in.


Allegedly, Samsung will continue to produce its own brand of Exynos processors as well and the upcoming Galaxy S8 will be launched in the same way as it had been done this year. This means that the international version of the S8 will sport the Exynos 8895 SoC, while the US versions will come with SD 830. However, the performance and battery life of the two variants should not differ by much next year, if both chips are made by Samsung on a 10nm process.

Now that multiple sources have confirmed that Samsung is going to push back the unveiling of the Galaxy S8 to an exclusive event in April at New York City, we weren't really expecting to hear anything about the S8 at the Mobile World Congress next month. If a recent report by The Investor is to be believed, then Samsung might actually be unveiling the S8 at the upcoming MWC 2017 in Barcelona. The same report also mentions that the delayed release date remains unchanged, in spite of the early showcase. In case you are not aware, it is highly likely that the Galaxy S8 will be released for sale in and around mid-April (18th as reported by some of the sources).


While we are not sure what to believe at this point as both the contrasting reports come from credible sources, we would not really mind taking a look at the much anticipated Galaxy S8 next month. The general consensus is that Samsung will display the S8 with a handful of units which the company will bring out especially for this event. By the time it's April though, there will reportedly be ten million S8 smartphones ready to be shipped out to markets around the world.

There were a few rumors around that were claiming that Samsung won't be making an Exynos variant of the Galaxy S8 this year. The rumors found some solid ground when it became clear that Samsung has exclusive rights to hog the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip till the S8 is released in April. As the Korean company is developing the chips for Qualcomm on their own 10nm FinFET process this year, the suggestion that Samsung may ditch the Exynos series when it comes to the Galaxy S8, did not seem that farfetched then. However, Samsung has put those rumors and speculations to rest with their latest teaser about the Exynos series of processors.


The Twitter post simply states, "Discover cloud 9 with Exynos" - coming soon.


This could imply that instead of the rumored Exynos 8895 chip, Samsung will be launching its 10nm series 9 Exynos chips with the S8 this year. The Mali-G71 GPU which will probably be included in the SoC, is designed to handle 4K and VR with ease. Whether the performance can match up to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or not is something that remains to be seen. Going by the history books, Samsung's flagship Exynos processors have always been almost as powerful as their Snapdragon counterparts, but with better power-efficiency.

Samsung has now confirmed what the rumors were speculating for months now; the Galaxy Note 7 is coming back. On their official blog, Samsung mentioned that the millions (4.3 million) of Note 7 smartphones recalled during the infamous call back will be recycled in an environmentally friendly way. The procedure will involve three of the following methods.


1. Refurbished variants of the Note 7 smartphones will be reintroduced in certain regions as rental phones.


2. Components and parts from the rest of the units will be removed and reused in new smartphones.


3. The metal and the other non-technical components will be removed and reused as well in a way that doesn't impact the environment.


In case you are wondering if the refurbished Note 7 is coming to your country, let us inform you that Samsung has mentioned it to be only a possibility if the local authorities permit it and demand for the phone is high enough in the region. Also, it has been confirmed that Samsung won't be releasing these units in the US. This answers the question asked by Greenpeace during the MWC in February, concerning what the company's plans were regarding the discarded Note 7 handsets.

We all know that Google is bringing the Play Store on some Chrome OS powered devices very soon, but it hasn't happened yet unfortunately. However, the company did earlier reveal which three devices were eligible initially to get the upgrades necessary for supporting the Play Store and now they have confirmed the whole list. According to the list, at least one Samsung Chromebook is sure to get the stable channel update and that's the Chromebook Plus.


The other five Chromebooks which are also assured to get support for the Play Store are the Acer Chromebook R11 (CB5-132T, C738T), the Asus Chromebook Flip C100PA, the Google Chromebook Pixel (2015). the AOpen Chromebase Mini and the AOpen Chromebox Mini. Although Google has stated that being on the beta channel doesn't guarantee stable Play Store support for these devices in the future, it is worth mentioning that the Acer Chromebook R13 (CB5-312T) and the Asus Chromebook Flip C302 are on the beta channel.

Weibo has long since been the ultimate place to find awesome leaks and this one is no exception either. If the news does turn out to be true, then it would truly be awesome for fans of the Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi. It should be noted that although Samsung is currently leading the pack with their new generation of bezel-less beauties (Galaxy S8/S8+), it was Xiaomi who reinvented the genre with the Mi Mix after the Sharp Aquos began the trend back in 2014.


According to the report, the highly anticipated Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3 are likely going to sport curved AMOLED displays made by Samsung. Given that Samsung's curved AMOLED displays are inarguably the best in the business, it looks like we are in for some seriously stunning smartphones from Xiaomi this year. The only gripe is that those models have so far not been released outside China. Let' hope that the Chinese manufacturer changes up its strategy this year around.

Samsung Bendgate

 

It looks like Samsung isn't the only one taking advantage of Apple's #Bendgate. Samsung made a clever ad of the Galaxy Note 3 has popped up, showing the bent iPhone 6 Plus bowing to the Android phablet.

 

HTC

 

In addition, HTC and KitKat have also jumped on the Bendgate bandwagon on Twitter.

 

KitKat

 

Sarcastically, HTC notes, "Designed to withstand the most demanding environments. Like your pockets." It refers to the One M8, which is also made of aluminum, but hasn't suffered from bending issues so far. In the other hand, KitKat said it doesn't bend, it Break.

There was a time when Apple used to make small and sleek phones but that time well and truly gone. If you thought the iPhone X with its beautiful but huge 5.8-inch bezel-less display was big, wait till you hear this. Apparently, Apple is planning to build a smartphone that will have a 6.5-inch display and it might be called the iPhone X Plus. Reports also indicate that the next iPhone will be known as iPhone X as well, but with updated hardware, but quite possibly, the same 18:9 borderless OLED display. LG is reportedly going to supply the 6.5-inch display for this rumored gigantic iPhone.


It was quite a happening week for Apple as this news comes in right after the company publicly apologized for slowing down older smartphones and promised to replace the batteries of recent (iPhone 6 and up) iPhones for only for only $29. Also, a key figure in the music industry and longtime Apple Music Head, Jimmy Iovine is leaving the company.

The Galaxy S5 is still receiving timely updates from Samsung, although it is over three years old at this point. It's not that we are complaining of course! In fact, it is always nice to see Samsung showing some love to older handsets and the Galaxy S5 was indeed the king of Samsung's roster back in 2014.


As per reports, the August security patch is making rounds in Europe at the time and if your S5 still hasn't got it, it will in the next day or two. Most other regions will get the same update as well, but the timeline will differ depending on your location. The OTA update will come in at a size of 74.96MB and the firmware version on it will be GH900FXXS1CQH1.


In case you are wondering, we are yet to receive any confirmation regarding whether or not the Galaxy S5/S5 Neo will receive an upgrade to Android Nougat. Nevertheless, we will keep you updated on the news as always.

The Galaxy S8 was actually one of the last handsets in Samsung's elite line-up to receive the security patch for October, so we were not sure when the handset would be receiving the November patch. The good news is that the update is now rolling out to the S8 and S8+ handsets across Netherlands.


If you own a Galaxy S8, firmware version G950FXXU1AQK7 should be heading for your S8 any time now, provided you are in the Netherlands or at least in Europe! The Galaxy S8+ is also receiving the same update in the region, but in the form of firmware version G955FXXXU1AQK7. Both updates are quite big as it turns out and weigh in at roughly 545MB. Aside from the usual 61 fixes that this month's Google patch brings to all devices running on Android, this update will also address the Krack W-Fi vulnerability and make Bluetooth connections with device more stable. In case you are wondering when the S8 will start receiving the same update in your location, it's probably going to take a week at most.
