A Samsung Packed Fall Lineup for Boost Mobile: The Samsung Galaxy S II 4G, the Galaxy Rush & the Samsung Array


Late last week, Samsung and Boost Mobile showed us some new devices from their Fall 2012 lineup. For those of us who find ourselves using a pre-paid, contract-less carrier like Boost Mobile, rather than T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T, our options are usually limited to phones which can be described as mediocre as best. Well, Boost and Samsung have an answer for that with their new lineup.

While the new lineup doesn’t feature a Galaxy S III, which to be honest really isn’t surprising given how much it would cost, features a more than adequate Galaxy S II, in a sexy white or black coat, the Samsung Galaxy Rush, for the mid end/casual smartphone users, and lastly, a good old slider, feature phone in the Samsung Array. You can find the specs to follow. Continue reading

Eric Engoron

Have you ever wanted to take data off of a USB and put it on your iPad, iPhone, or any other wireless device? If you have, you know that this process is a hassle that involves your computer as a middleman to bridge the USB and your device, and then you have to do all that tedious dragging and dropping. However, CloudFTP, a kickstarter project by the Sanho Corporation, promises to be a game changer that eliminates the middleman.

How Easy Can My Personal Information Be Stolen?


Today I was reading through some of my tweets and I came across one that raised my eyebrow. The tweet read, “Okay, @SnazzyQ  scared me. Downloading Cloak VPN” to my interest I asked him what made him say this. He replied back with a YouTube link. As I was watching it, I was shocked as to how easy it is to steal other peoples information by just being on public Wi-Fi. For me I never use public Wi-Fi because I was always told to never use public Wi-Fi for this exact reason. Watching the YouTube video he was using an Android application called FaceNiff. What FaceNiff does is it uses a packet sniffer and it intercepts unencrypted cookies which are sent from all the websites anyone uses for example; Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. And a non-hacker regular Joe has your information to many of websites. This is bad and this is just a wake up call for you. How to do you stop this from happening? My best choice would to use a safe VPN, this can prevent this from happening. I don’t know how to do this on Android with a public network. But he does go into explain how you can do it with an Apple product. With an Apple product you can use an application called Cloak. Cloak allows you to use that network you are connected to and use it as a VPN. This allows you to browse safe and secure without having to worry about people stealing your information. This was a scary video to watch because it is just so easy to steal people’s data right from under them. Watch for yourself.
