Security For Everyone - Reviewing ExpressVPN

ExpressVPNAs more and more countries and companies try to know everything about our online activities, whether for good purposes or not, online privacy has become a very important aspect of our life.

CyberGhostMany countries, companies and people have developed a habit of trying to track every move or decision you make on the Internet.

Reviewing The Inateck HB4009 USB 3.0 3-Port Hub & Magic Port: Is It Really Magic?

Inateck HB4009Years ago there was a program called LapLink, that used a proprietary cable to transfer and sync data between computers. As the name implies, it was originally intended to sync files between desktop and laptop computers, but it actually worked on any PC and was very useful for making backups as well. The software was deservedly popular and very good at what it did (The LapLink company is still active, but their focus is a bit different these days). The Inateck HB4009 USB 3.0 3-Port Hub & Magic Port is designed to do what those LapLink cables did, once upon a time, and it has a lot of extra features that make it look very appealing.
