USB Network Gate Review - Share USB Drives Remotely
USB Network Gate is a professional application that facilitates server and client components for sharing and accessing USB devices over LAN, WAN and Internet, in order to perform file operations on the remote storage drives as if they're actually plugged into your computer. For example, you can copy important files from a friend's external hard drive instead of going through the trouble of uploading data online just to be able to download it, which is ideal when talking about large amounts of information. The beauty of this tool is that any two or more machines can be linked together through the public IP address, host name (for LAN) and a preferred port. It requires minimal configuration, making it accessible for casual users who prefer simplicity over customization. License type, setup, and interface The trial version can be tested for 14 days, after which you can either uninstall the product or purchase the full package for $95.88 / €86.38 (ex...

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9 Review - Close, but No Cigar
ESET NOD32 Antivirus just got updated to version 9 a couple of days ago. Since we can't contain our excitement any longer, we're just going to dive into the application to explore the new and improved features. Developed to protect computers from all popular types of malware, this program features preset and custom scan profiles, advanced heuristics and configuration settings, web access, email client and anti-phishing protection, along with extra security tools. What's new As in the previous edition, you can enable or disable PUP (potentially unwanted programs) detection during setup. Installation is faster than before and an initial scan is auto-triggered 20 minutes after setup completion or reboot. The interface got redesigned. The developer keeps the neatly organized structure that it has already familiarized us with, while trying to make ESET NOD32 Antivirus friendlier than before. We think it succeeded. Thi...

SendTo-Convert Review: Convert Photos Right from Your Context Menu
Converting images to various file formats is supposed to be a simple-to-handle process. However, not all the programs available on the market seem to take this task seriously and they simplify the practice to a few clicks. SendTo-Convert changes the rules and allows you to convert photos from your right-click menu without other additional tweaks. The application is delivered in a lightweight and free package. It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and

WHDownloader Review - Selectively Download Windows 10 Updates
Updating Windows with the latest hotfixes and security patches is (or should be) the first step when reinstalling the operating system. According to Microsoft, it's such an important part of the OS that it made it unavoidable in Windows 10. However, not all updates are mandatory. Instead of running Windows Update, you can resort to WHDownloader to get a clearer idea of all downloads available online, as well as get only the ones you're interested in after thorough documentation. Formerly known as Windows Hotfix Downloader, this tool is compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, and 7, both 32-bit and 64-bit architecture types. Apart from the fact that it lists general updates, hotfixes, baseline, security and optional updates, it also provides the online source for reading more details about specific updates on Microsoft's KB Articles. Portable tool for creating update backups The application's not wrapped in a setup package, so you can copy the downloade...

Todoist Review - Cross-Platform Task Management Solution
Todoist delivers a task management system that can be reached from anywhere, including the browser, while also sporting clients both for desktop and mobile platforms. Organization is probably the best ally you have when facing the pile of things that need to get done every day. Regardless of whether you have to deal with a work or a personal project, establishing precise tasks, due dates, and setting up reminders will keep you out of a lot of trouble. Todoist proposes a streamlined environment where you get to create multiple projects, keep track of upcoming tasks, or assign them to other users without wasting too much time. Since Todoist relies on a web platform, at least on the desktop side, the clients preserve the same interface design. On the other hand, the project also features companion applications for iOS and Android, extensions for all major browsers (Safari, Firefox, or...

Camera Guard Pro Review - Block Unattended Access to Your Camera and Microphone
iMacs and MacBooks come with a built-in camera and microphone that might end up being a serious security risk if they fall into the wrong hands. Camera Guard Pro helps you take a proactive approach by automatically blocking all processes that try to use the devices. The Apple-vetted operating system has not been left out by malware developers, even though the amount of malicious software created for the Mac is considerably lower when compared to other platforms. Most recently, after infecting a Mac, the Backdoor.MAC.Eleanor malware installed a backdoor that granted full access to the machine to a third party, and that included the webcam device. Naturally, this raises serious concerns over one's privacy. By default, OS X comes with safety measures in place that automatically activate the camera LED whenever an app operates the webcam. Still, the camera chip can be reprogrammed to disable this f...

Paste Review - Clipboard Manager Focused on Improving Productivity
The copy and paste feature is an intrinsic part of any operating system, but the one-item-at-a-time approach might seem too time-consuming to users who juggle with a lot of the same assets on a daily basis. Paste aims to reduce the number of repetitive actions by transforming the clipboard history into an unlimited resource. Like any other clipboard manager, once launched, Paste starts recording everything you put on your clipboard and makes the database navigable and searchable. What makes the Paste application stand out are the design choices and the simple control: a separate card is created for each clipping, and you get to browse through them via a large panel placed in the bottom area of your screen. The Paste utility can deal with text content, images, links, files, or folders, but keep in mind that it will only store references so that it won’t take up too much storage space. The Paste cards...

Memory Clean 2 Review - Free Up Unnecessarily Blocked Memory
Mac OS X comes with a built-in memory management system and helps you analyze the RAM usage via the Activity Monitor. Memory Clean 2 makes the statistical information more easily accessible and helps you take control of the optimization process. Random-access memory (RAM) is a crucial part of any operating system, and the lack of it or its poor management can take a serious toll on your Mac’s overall performance. As a result, making sure that the memory is not needlessly blocked can improve the system’s responsiveness. However, the use of memory cleaners is put under question especially when Mac OS X is concerned, considering that the operating system already comes with an above-average memory management system that will automatically allocate the necessary resources to the apps in need. Memory cleaner that shifts the control over to the user Even though this is generally the...

Grammarly Review - Improve the Quality of Your Writing
The Grammarly online platform features, among other writing resources, an editor that automatically scans your text for spelling errors or common grammatical mistakes and suggests various language improvements. The Grammarly desktop client enables you to access this editor outside the browser. Most text processors include spell-checking capabilities while some advanced word processing solutions can also keep a lookout for grammatical mistakes. Nevertheless, highlighting repetitive words, offering synonyms suitable to the context, or pointing out sentences that lack clarity is out of the question. Grammarly is an online solution designed to filter your writing through a text editor that can recognize around 250 types of language errors that range from spelling and grammar to punctuation. ...

Watch Dogs 2 Review (PC)
The sequel to Ubisoft's Watch Dogs is pretty much a different game than the original. Aside from a couple of game aspects that have been introduced in the first title, Watch Dogs 2 brings in a completely different formula, in an attempt to redeem the franchise in the eyes of its fans. However, Watch Dogs 2's recipe is in no way original, on the contrary. There's no argue that Ubisoft's game borrows a lot from Grand Theft Auto gameplay mechanics, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The French company wanted to make sure Watch Dogs 2 will be well received by fans and media alike, so it came up with a “to-do list” that will help it achieve that. Watch Dogs 2 introduces a new protagonist, so if you didn't finish Aidan Pearce's saga from the original game, you won't miss anything since the two games are not related story-wise. Marcus Holloway is a jack-of-all-trades hacker, member of a group of misfits called DeadSec. If there are things that Ubisoft improved over ...

Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition Review (PC)
Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition makes some good tweaks to an already solid video game, with most of the additions clearly based on the feedback that the player community has offered since the title was first delivered on the Xbox One. The platformer mechanics are not tweaked in any significant ways, but the presence of the new Easy difficulty means that the game is more accessible than it ever was, which is a great thing given the subtle plot and the great graphics that it offers. There are still moments when the difficulty ramps up a little too fast, and it's hard to balance the need to create a new save point with the fact that energy might be required for progress in a coming section, but the Definitive Edition for Ori and the Blind Forest is a great way to experience the game for those who have only heard about it from friends until now. The title is developed by Moon Studios and is published by Microsoft, with the game offered on the Xbox One hom...

The Banner Saga 2 Review (PC)
The Banner Saga 2 is a game about loss, desperate last stands, impressive victories against the odds and, above all, the impossible task of trying to save as many lifes as possible in the face of an almost impossible enemy force. The Dredge have not been slowed down, and the alliance between the Varl and the humans is under new strain, but there's hope still for this world as new leaders learn how to distribute limited resources and when to enter battles to keep their followers alive. There's no final victory over evil to be secured in The Banner Saga 2, but the game offers a story that shows how powerful hope can be and has a set of core mechanics that allow the player to show his tactical skills in a variety of interesting situations. The game is created by Stoic Games and published by Versus Evil, with the game currently offered on the PC and set to arrive later on the PlayStation 4 from Sony and the Xbox One from Microsoft. Story The Banner ...

Ratchet & Clank Review (Playstation 4)
Ratchet & Clank is a title that exists because Sony Interactive Entertainment and its partners decided to invest in a movie based on the video game franchise and then discovered that the coming entertainment product would benefit from the existence of a video game tie-in. The events of the big-screen adventure are based on the first title in the franchise and benefit from voice work from a range of Hollywood stars, including Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Rosario Dawson, and Sylvester Stallone. The new Ratchet & Clank video game is linked to the movie regarding narrative, but it takes the core mechanics and the environments of the PlayStation 2 title and updates them to appeal to modern players. There's a lot of fun gameplay in the new Ratchet & Clank, but the game really shines in the graphics department, offering some beautifully animated cutscenes and a world that's a pleasure to explore. The almost remake concept works well, and the title will appeal both to th...

Europa Universalis IV - Mare Nostrum Review (PC)
Europa Universalis IV - Mare Nostrum, as the name implies, is an expansion for the grand strategy title that aims to make the naval aspect of the game feel more engaging while also improving other mechanics, including trade and espionage. Much of the impact of the new ideas depends on the nation that players tend to play as, but even for those who tend to lead land-focused factions with limited interest in trade, the way core claims and other covert operations are now conducted will change strategies and goals. Mare Nostrum increases the points of interest that players have to deal with, and at certain moments, there are so many things that require constant attention that the game becomes a bit of a chore. Europa Universalis IV is both more difficult and more open with this expansion, and it's a pleasure to see how different alternate histories evolve when one nation that historically succeeded fails to win a crucial war or crumbles because of internal divisions. ...

Let’s Chat: Is Windows 7 Really Outdated?
Microsoft is trying to convince everyone to upgrade to Windows 10, and after offering the operating system free of charge in the first 12 months of availability, the company is now trying a different tactic aimed directly at Windows 7 users The firm says that Windows 7 has “outdated security,” explaining in a blog post that only Windows 10 can deal with today’s security threats and no matter how hard you’d try, you still can’t make Windows 7 just as secure as this latest Windows version. The post was made on the company’s German blog, which is a bit surprising given that no English version was published, but it still shows that Microsoft is already preparing its arsenal for moving users off Windows 7. “Windows 7 is based on outdated security architecture,” Microsoft says. “Companies and users who won’t upgrade fr...

Android Users Under Attack As Banking Malware Source Code Was Posted Online
Security researchers warn that the source code of an Android banking malware was posted online, along with information on how to use it, which means that users of Android devices are very likely to face an increasing number of attacks in the short term. Security firm Dr. Web reveals that it has already discovered one malware developed with this leaked source code, adding that it’s distributed as popular applications either directly injected in APKs available online or in third-party stores. The malware has been flagged as Android.BankBot.149.origin and tries to get administrator privileges on compromised computers. Once it’s granted full privileges, the malware removes the app’s icon from the home screen, trying to trick people into believing it was removed. Stealing credit card data But on the other hand, it remains active in the background, and it connects to a command and control se...

Honor Flagship with 5.7-Inch QHD Display, 6GB RAM Coming Soon
The Honor 8 is a more than decent high-end smartphone by itself, but now that Huawei has started seeding Android 7.0 Nougat, it could become an even better device. If you liked the Honor 8, then you will be happy to know that the Chinese company plans to launch another flagship in the coming months. We don't know if it will be called Honor 9, but the smartphone has a model number that's been confirmed by TENAA, Honor DUK-TL30. The Chinese regulatory commission has just certified a new Honor smartphone that packs more powerful specs than the predecessor. First of all, the new Honor handset is equipped with a 2.4GHz octa-core processor, but the chipset isn't named in the listing. We hope it's Huawei's new Kirin 960 CPU, since the Honor 8 comes with a Kirin 95...

Android Malware Secretly Downloads and Purchases Apps from Google Play Store
Android devices are targeted by a new type of malware that secretly downloads and purchases applications from the Google Play Store, while also being capable of stealing information, such as the configured Google account. Codenamed Skyfin, the new infection reaches Android devices with the help of a different malware known as Android.DownLoader, which usually spreads as part of applications posted in third-party stores. In other words, users who are downloading apps from any other store than Google’s are exposed to these attacks, so they should double-check each APK to make sure it’s not infected. Security company Dr. Web says Skyfin can compromise the Google Play Store process to automatically download apps on users’ devices. These apps are not installed though, but the file is stored in the downloads folder to make sure that the user does not notice any difference on their phones. “It steals a mobile ...

Moto Z (2017) with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU Spotted in Benchmark
The Moto Z is one of those smartphones that didn't receive the attention it deserved. The smartphone recently made its debut in Europe after its initial release in the United States via major carrier Verizon. Aside from its pretty powerful hardware configuration, the smartphone follows the modular design that LG G5 failed to make popular among Android fans. However, Motorola's Moto Z looks and feels more stylish than most other flagships available on the market. Also, the Moto Mods that can be added to the phone to improve its battery, camera or audio features seem to be selling very well, since Motorola announced that it would continue to launch new Mods throughout the 2017. Now, if you like the Moto Z, which packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor inside, then you will be pleased to know Motorola could launc...

Bank Blames Microsoft for the Collapse of Windows Phone
Windows Phone currently has a market share of approximately 0.5 percent, according to third-party research firms, but Microsoft remains tight-lipped on everything related to its mobile vision most of the time. Coupled with many other highly-criticized decisions, this approach contributed to the decline of Windows Phone, and now a French bank blames Microsoft for abandoning support for the platform. After many developers decided to leave Windows phones and focus exclusively on Android and iOS, HSBC France is doing the same thing, blaming Microsoft for giving up on the mobile operating system. Starting with February 2017, the official HSBC France app will no longer be available in the Windows Store, and customers are recommended to turn to their browsers in order to access accounts (via thewindowse). “The services offered by Microsoft are evolving and their decision to abandon support ...

Microsoft to Lay Off 700 Employees Next Week - Report
​Microsoft is expected to cut 700 more jobs next week, with an announcement to be made when the company reveals its quarterly earnings. The new layoffs are part of a plan that was announced in mid-2016, with the firm revealing at that point that 2,850 roles would be removed globally during the fiscal year which ends in June 2017. According to BI, the layoffs will cover several divisions within Microsoft and could also target the mobile division, which itself has been impacted substantially by job cuts following the purchase of Nokia’s Devices and Services unit. The previous round of layoffs was primarily focused on mobile, but other divisions were included as well, so it remains to be seen how Microsoft plans to spread this new job cut across its units. Microsoft also cut more than 18,000 jobs in July 2014 after taking over Nokia’s smartphone business as p...

Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS Delayed Until February 2, Will Bring Linux 4.8, Newer Mesa
If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2. We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. "Due to some parts of the HWE stack still being in flux, the 16.04.2 release will be pushed back to Feb 2," said Adam Conrad, Software Engineer at Canonical. "D...

Important CentOS 7 Linux Kernel Security Patch Released, 3 Vulnerabilities Fixed
CentOS developer and maintainer Johnny Hughes is announcing the availability of a new, important Linux kernel security update for the CentOS 7 series of operating systems. CentOS 7 is derived from the freely distributed source code of the commercial Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 operating system series, which means that it also benefits from its security patches. According to the recently published RHSA-2017:0086-1 security advisory, which was marked as important, three security vulnerabilities are patched. Two of these security flaws are marked as moderate and one as important. Documented as CVE-2016-7117, the latter is a use-after-free vulnerability discovered in Linux kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem, which could allow a remote attacker to...

openSUSE 13.2 GNU/Linux OS Reached End of Life, Upgrade to openSUSE Leap 42.2
If for some reason you are still using the openSUSE 13.2 operating system on your personal computer or server, you should know that it recently reached end of life and upgrading to a newer version is highly recommended. In November last year, we briefly informed our readers about the upcoming EOL (End of Life) support for the openSUSE 13.2 GNU/Linux distribution, the last one that was released before the project was split into what we know today as openSUSE Tumbleweed, a rolling release operating system, and openSUSE Leap, a static release edition. Unfortunately, the EOL date for openSUSE 13.2 was reached this week, on January 17, which means that SUSE and openSUSE ...
