Flter: Blanket Privacy Coverage For All Your Networked Devices Made Easy

The moment you get onto the Internet, you can kiss privacy goodbye. When online, you are effectively putting your privacy out in the open, allowing Big Brother (AKA the government, not the reality TV series), your Internet service provider, and companies, to read into your web activities, search history, and even physical location. Most people are fine with this intrusion, but if you aren’t Flter is here to help. Flter is, btw, pronounced as ‘filter’ and intentionally spelt without an i. To be fair, it is not that we can’t keep ourselves private while online, we can, but the truth is, blanket configuration to cover all your devices for anonymity is a thing reserved for network administrators – who are the computer world’s equivalent of rocket scientists).

DELL Unveiled 32-inch 8K Display, 27-inch QHD Smart Workspace And More

These days, the tech world is all about absurd tech which we suspect are solely with the aim of making tech watchers’ jaw drop. These gadgets go beyond ‘wow’; they will make you go like “no shit, are they serious?, or maybe just “no freaking way!” So far, we have witnessed a ginormous 21-inch laptop with curved screen, a refrigerator that lets you see what’s inside without opening, a flash drive that packs 2TB, a laptop that packs three monitors et cetera, but those are just the tip of the iceberg. There are more and DELL is responsible for a couple too, including an eye-watering 32-inch 8K monitor (8K!) and a 27-inch QHD Smart Workspace, the world’s first smart workspace that pretty much negates the need for a mouse or even a keyboard.

Tobii Eye Tracking Now Available On More Consumer Products

MSI’s laptop has it. Acer’s laptops, including the monstrous 21-inch curved screen laptop, also has it, and now, Tobii has revealed more consumer products that uses its eye-tracking technology. In all, a total of six consumer eye-tracking devices were revealed, including Alienware 17 Gaming Laptop, a few of Acer’s Predator gaming monitors, and Huawei’s Honor Magic smartphone. Now, we are not going to judge if eye-tracking is the future of computing or gaming, but we sure hope it is not another hyped-up technology that doesn’t last. However, we certainly hope it will be on all computing devices as a standard such as mouse, keyboard, and trackpad are. Continue reading Tobii Eye Tracking Now Available On More Consumer Products

Google Pixel C 64GB Model Gets $100 Off On Google Store Till January 7

Here’s another ‘don’t say we didn’t tell you’ post and this time, it is the well-received, but pricey Google Pixel C tablet that’s getting a significant* discount. Google has taken $100 off the 64GB model’s original price on Google Store (online, obviously). As mentioned, the discount only applies to the 64GB model and after lopping off 100 bucks, the 64GB model is the same price as the 32GB (32GB is out-of-stock anyways), which kind of makes it a good deal. However, it is by no means cheap in Android tablet standards. Pixel C is premium device and it was never cheap with or without discount. It is just ’good deal’ with respect its original price.

Samsung Brings S-Pen To Its New Chromebooks

This is the latest pair of Chromebooks from Samsung. Being one of the early Chromebook maker, Samsung is certainly no stranger to Chrome OS powered hardware, but the duo announced yesterday is different; they are designed with Google Play in mind which means, in addition to Chrome OS staples, you will be able to experience Android apps on these two devices too. While being a laptop/tablet hybrid isn’t new, it does boast a Chromebook first: a stylus. Now, that’s something refreshing, particularly because it is no ordinary stylus; it is a digitized pen, meaning your S pen experience on Samsung’s smartphones is now available on Chrome OS and this also means you get to enjoy pressure sensitivity when making its 0.7mm pen tip do your bidding.
