Reviewing The Inateck BK1003 Bluetooth Keyboard - Affordable And Portable

InateckTablets are justifiably popular devices these days. They are lightweight, easy to slip into a bag and carry around, and incredibly versatile. However, even with the addition of a “Swipe" keyboard app, typing on a tablet's virtual keyboard isn't as smooth and fast as typing on a physical keyboard, at least once you're past the hunt and peck stage of typing. That's why many manufacturers are providing small, light, portable keyboards that make life even easier for tablet lovers. Inateck offers portable keyboards in both PC and Mac layouts. We received the BK1003 keyboard for testing (it has a Windows layout, but more about that in a minute).

Security For Everyone – Reviewing Heimdal Pro

HeimdalHere at 7 Tutorials, we test and analyze many security products. Some of them are good and some of them not that much. Most of the internet security suites are designed to offer you protection against things like viruses, network attacks or malicious websites. Some of them also watch for known vulnerabilities in your operating system. However, none of the security suites we saw check the vulnerabilities found in commonly used third party applications for Windows. Heimdal is a security product that aims to patch this security gap and offer you a better protection against zero hour exploits and data leakage.
