USB Network Gate Review - Share USB Drives Remotely - GIVEAWAY UPDATED
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.

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...

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.

Telegram Review - Secure Instant Messaging and File Sharing Solution
Online privacy is a serious concern for various reasons, even if you are not an activist that lives under an oppressive regime. Telegram is an instant messaging service that works in the cloud and brings easy-to-use yet powerful encryption tools to the average user. Telegram has clients for the major desktop platforms (Mac, Windows, and Linux) and companion mobile apps for iOS, Android, WP, and Firefox OS. You can also access the Telegram service in any Internet browser by using the web version. You do get to go online and learn more about how Telegram works, but as there are no detailed user manuals for each client, you are mostly left to your own devices as far as interacting with the apps goes. Cloud-based instant messaging solution that uses server to client encryption

Silicio Review - Control and See Your Music
There are numerous applications you can use to listen to music, whether you prefer playing local files or streaming your songs. With that in mind, a simple, unobtrusive desktop player capable of controlling multiple apps may come in very handy. Silicio is a lightweight OS X application consisting of a desktop mini-player and a Notification Center widget, both of which allow you to control songs being played using iTunes, Apple Music, iTunes Radio, Beats 1, Spotify, Deezer or Vox, the latter also offering support for SoundCloud.

DiskMaker X Review - Create Bootable OS X Installers
Apple encourages you to use the Mac App Store Update tool or the OS X Recovery feature to update or reinstall your system, but these solutions are not suitable for all cases. DiskMaker X is an alternative solution in such circumstances, as it comes with a graphical user interface that can help you create bootable OS X USBs with ease. To help you create bootable OS X installer drives, Apple provides the “createinstallmedia” tool that can be accessed via the command line, through the Terminal application. You can view a detailed description of the procedure and usage examples on the Apple Support website. ...

Cloudo Review - Access Multiple Cloud Apps from a Unified Interface
Cloud services have made it possible to access files and information from any location or device, but finding items created or stored by various web apps is not easy, unless you centralize this information to ensure you always have it at your fingertips. Cloudo is a helpful application that indexes data from multiple cloud-based services and apps and enables you to search for items, browse your cloud storage, download files, launch web apps and share content right from your desktop, using a simple hotkey. Great productivity tool that serves as a cloud-based Spotlight As a Mac user, you are no doubt familiar with the handy OS X Spotlight feature, which enables you to search for files and launch applications in seconds. In a nutshell, Cloudo offers similar functionality, except it searches for content in the cloud instead of your Mac's local storage. The list of supported services is quite extensive and includes the following:

Typeeto Review - Full-Scale Keyboard for Bluetooth-Enabled Devices
Typeeto allows you to use your Mac’s keyboard with any Bluetooth-enabled iOS or Android devices, Apple TVs, other computers, and certain game consoles. Virtual keyboards are great, but full-size hardware keyboards are even better, especially if you need to type fast or have to quickly write large pieces of text. Typeeto uses the Bluetooth controller available in most gadgets to establish a connection and merely sends everything you type on the Mac’s keyboard to the currently linked device. The Typeeto app comes with a customizable hotkey for pasting text content from your Mac to the other devices, but it can also trigger some default keyboard combinations, such as Command + A to select all the text, the arrow keys to scroll up and down, and so on. Uncomplicated setup procedure that resumes to Bluetooth pairing To get started, you must enable the Bl...

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. ...

Starcraft 2 - Nova Covert Ops Mission Pack 1 Review (PC)
Starcraft 2 - Nova Covert Ops Mission Pack 1 needs to do something very difficult for a video game: to convince gamers to care about a universe after the stars of the saga, which spawned five core installments and numerous spin-offs, have defeated the ultimate villain and have said their goodbyes to fans. After playing through the three missions offered, I must say that, as it stands now, the DLC will only appeal to the most dedicated fans of the universe and even they will be disappointed with the limited amount of new content and with the lack of imagination associated with the three missions. Nova, as a character, has the potential to be the center of a good story and there are suggestions about potential interesting development in the first mission pack, but the developers really need to step up their game in the future. It might be a good idea to deliver the rest of the Starcraft 2 DLC as quickly as possible and to then move to another full installment in the...

Canonical Makes It Easy for Users to Install Snaps via Ubuntu Software
We wrote earlier an update to an article published last week about the fact that there was a nasty bug present in the GNOME Software application that made it impossible for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) users to install third-party .deb packages. On May 4, 2016, Canonical finally pushed the patched version of the GNOME Software app, which is called Ubuntu Software in the newly released Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system, allowing users to install various applications distributed in the .deb file format and obtained from third-party sources with a simple double mouse click on the file. But that's not all Canonical introduced in today's update of Ubuntu Software, as Mohan Ram informs us that it is also possible t...

Linux kernel 4.4.9 LTS is out now, and according to the appended shortlog, it's a pretty big update, changing a total of 176 files, with 1648 insertions and 691 deletions.

"I'm announcing the release of the 4.4.9 kernel. All users of the 4.4 kernel series must upgrade," said Greg Kro...

New Stable Steam Client Improves Rendering Performance with Vulkan Applications
Valve has just pushed a new stable update to its cross-platform Steam Client software for all supported platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux. The Steam Client stable update released on May 4, 2016, appears to be a pretty big one, bringing various general improvements for all operating systems, such as a rebase of the web browser component to Chromium 49.0.2623.110, improvements for Family View's iconography, and scaling fixes when previewing images in the screenshot manager. Games no longer fail to install with the "Content still encrypted" error message, the French layout of the controller keyboard received a period symbol that was missing from previous versions of the Steam Client, and it looks like several crashes that occurred when attempting to use the controller on-screen keyboard have been patched. With today's update of the Steam Client, Valve engineers also ...

Ubuntu Make 16.05 Lands on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Brings Android Studio and SDK Fixes
Ubuntu Make developer Didier Roche announced the release of Ubuntu Make 16.05, a new maintenance release of his open-source CLI tool that lets developers install various third-party SDKs and IDEs. Designed from the ground up to help aspiring developers and programmers install all sorts of third-party applications that aren't available in the main Ubuntu repositories or don't have a PPA (Personal Package Archive), Ubuntu Make is a simple and must have command-line utility. The new release, Ubuntu Make 16.05, has been announced on May 4, 2016, and it promises to fix installation issues with the Android Studio and Andriod SDK frameworks that appeared due to recent modifications of their website, as well as to switch to the GitHub API for the installation of the Superpowers and LightTable frameworks.

Linux Kernel 4.5.3 Has ARM, F2FS and Btrfs Improvements, AMDGPU and Radeon Fixes
Renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman just announced the release and general availability of the third maintenance build of the latest and most advanced kernel branch, Linux 4.5. Linux kernel 4.5.3 is here, arriving two weeks after the release of the second maintenance version, Linux 4.5.2, and bringing a huge number of changes.

You Can Now Install Third-Party Debs via GNOME Software in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
We told you last week that there's a pretty nasty bug in the GNOME Software application, a graphical package manager from the GNOME Stack, that does not allow Ubuntu 16.04 LTS users to install third-party .deb files. As you might know (or not), Canonical decided to adopt GNOME Software as the default graphical package manager for its Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, replacing the old Ubuntu Software Center. Canonical also renamed GNOME Software to Ubuntu Software, making things more familiar for newcomers. But there was a nasty issue, which shouldn't have been in the first place, especially for an LTS (Long Term Support) release of Ubuntu Linux, which is one of the most used GNU/Linux operating systems out there, as Ubuntu Software (GNOME Software) didn't allow installations of .deb...

Watch: Linus Torvalds Talks About Why You Should Choose a Career in Linux
The Linux Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the growth of Linux, publish recently a new video starring the father of Linux, Mr. Linus Torvalds. It's a very short video, of approximately one minute, but also very inspiring for those who want to start an IT career, and why they should choose to work in Linux-powered and Open Source environments. Linus Torvalds started Linux, as in the Linux kernel, twenty-five years ago, in 1991, as a hobby, as he wanted to have an OS for his own needs. And today, Linux is currently behind thousands of GNU/Linux operating systems and projects. Best of all, Linux can be found almost anywhere these days, on the most demanding servers that power the World Wide Web (WWW), in your car, on your mobile phone, as well as in numerous small embedded devices. But Linux is not all about technology, as the most interesting part, at least as Mr. Torvalds sees things right now, is the community behind it, the people inv...

Sneaky Android Malware Makes Its Way on the Google Play Store, Again
McAfee security researchers revealed today they discovered dozens of Android apps infected with malware on Google's Play Store. Researchers say the apps were infected with the Android/Clicker.G malware and only targeted Russian-speaking users. Most of the apps never went above 5,000 downloads, and some of them provided users with a fully working interface, earning good reviews. Malware was blasting users with ads and system update notifications Once these apps reached Android devices, the security firm says the malware waited six hours before triggering the malicious behavior. McAfee classifies Android/Clicker.G as adware and researchers say that every two minutes, the malware would show a popup with annoying ads or ask users to download a system update or other apps from the update-sys-android[.]com...

Banking Trojans May Soon Abuse Android's Accessibility Feature
Security researchers from Symantec are sounding the alarm on an unknown Android feature that was shyly abused this past fall to install adware, but which they say can also be employed to deliver more dangerous threats. This glaring security hole exists in the Android operating system and takes the form of the device's Accessibility service, a feature that lets users with various disabilities interact with their smartphones. Social engineering is needed to trick users into activating the feature The first signs of crooks abusing Android's Accessibility feature arose last fall, when the Shedun (GhostPush) malware used it to deliver adware and PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Apps) to devices in China and South-East Asia. Crooks were telling users during an app's installation process that the ap...
