Enlarge (credit: Aurich / Thinkstock) In the wake of the new Investigatory Powers Act and the effect it might have on end-to-end crypto , and the further privacy- and security-eroding effects of the Digital Economy Act , we thought it was high time to write a guide on building your own VPN. If you want to keep your data safe and your browsing habits private, funnelling everything through your own VPN is one of the best things you can do. The scope of the problem (and of the solution) Before you can fix the problem of ISPs (or other actors) snooping on your behaviour, you need to understand it. That means knowing what your ISP (or the government) can (and cannot) detect (and modify) in your traffic. HTTPS traffic is already relatively secure—or, at least, its content is. Your ISP can't actually read the encrypted traffic that goes between you and an HTTPS website (at least, they can't unless they convince you to install a MITM certificate, like Lenovo did to unsuspecting users of its consumer laptops in 2015).

Its not that accurate, but still a nifty feature to have. Verdict Overall, the Asus Zenfone Live is not the best you can get for Rs. 9,999. The lightweight and compact design inclusive of a pedometer is on the bright side, while there is nothing else that excites us about the device. No doubt the real-time beautification is a unique feature for live streaming, but the hardware of the smartphone is rather disappointing. If Asus would have tried to trim down the UI and incorporated at least a Snapdragon 430 on this device, things would have been much better. In a nutshell, I would recommend you to go for either Xiaomi Redmi 4 or Lenovo K6 Power at this price point.

That is, it will take relatively standard-looking photos, but with more depth of field, further enhancing the DSLR-like look thats slowly but surely seeping into the mobile world. But lets get this straight: the Gionee isnt the first four-camera smartphone. The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro takes the award for that. However, that phones aim is very different than Gionees seems to be. Cameras are more than just a number Lenovos smartphone has three cameras on its back because of its Tango AR implementation. Only one of the sensors was a traditional snapper and it shared space on the phones back with a motion camera and depth camera. Combine the efforts of all three simultaneously and you can do much more than just take a picture. You can place life-size dinosaurs or a piece of furniture in your living room with a single tap with its augmented reality powers.

0 (for a change), a microSD reader (which removes the need for a connector) and a fast Ethernet port. Its only a shame about the proprietary PSU port. The VMac Mini uses a 36W (12v, 3A) power supply unit, a higher than expected wattage thats explained by the components found inside the device. At its heart is an Intel Pentium N4200, an Apollo Lake CPU with four cores, four threads, a TDP of 6W, a base clock frequency of 1.1GHz and a burst frequency of 2.5GHz. It also has 2MB of L2 cache and integrated Intel HD Graphics 505, clocked between 200MHz and 750MHz, with 18 execution units. Roughly speaking its a souped-up version of the Core M-5Y51 the CPU found in the amazing Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro with twice the core count but half the cache. It is worth noting that while the graphics can run 4K at 60Hz, we could only manage 4K at 29Hz on our test PC.

Patently Apples own theory is that rather than the MacBook, this patenting could pertain to a new hybrid device the company is planning a fresh spin on the iPad , with another recent patent having been filed for a smart cover sporting a virtual keyboard. On the hybrid theory, Apple is perhaps drawing some inspiration from the recent Lenovo Yoga Book with its Halo Keyboard, boasting digital capacitive keys with haptic feedback. Here at TechRadar, we were surprised by how accurate we found typing on this device. Ultimately, though, this is all speculative. Although the hybrid device certainly seems an interesting bet, given that pushing for a full virtual keyboard on the MacBook seems a majorly risky step to take in terms of the communitys reaction. At least in the near future: the e-ink keyboard would appear to be a far more likely prospect for Apples notebooks in the shorter term.

Lenovo Group plans to step up the transformation at its underperforming mobile and data-centre businesses after the computer giant swung back in the black in the year to March, rebounding from a loss in the same period last year. The group will execute its strategy diligently to drive sustainable profitable growth over time, chairman and chief executive Yang Yuanqing said in a press conference on Thursday after the market closed.

interesting development because after HP's spin-off into two separate organisations, they have been very dynamic with integration and product design and aggressive marketing and have been able to catch up with Lenovo. And it is worrying for Lenovo because they have to improve in many.

Motorola has already launched the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus this year, but as impressive as these two budget handsets are it looks like it will soon have them beat, with the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus, both of which have now been caught on camera. Shots of the Moto G5S were sent to Android Authority by a trusted source familiar with Lenovos plans, and show a full-metal handset in grey, gold and blue. The heavy use of metal is the main difference to the G5, which has an aluminum back, but plastic sides, and based on these shots it leaves the phone looking significantly higher-end, with just slim antenna bands along the top and bottom, where the Moto G5 has thick plastic strips. Otherwise, the Moto G5S looks similar to its predecessor, with a circular single-lens camera, a 3.5mm headphone port and a home button (presumably with a fingerprint scanner built in) below the display.

If you can digest the lack of a headphone jack, at a price of Rs 11,999, the LeEco Le 2 seems to be a great value for money proposition. Also read : LeEco Le2 hands-on review 4/5 Lenovo Phab 2 Plus: Best Phablet under 15k The PHAB 2 Plus is powered by a Mediatek MT8783 oct-core processor, a Mali T720 GPU, a 4,050mAh battery and 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a microSD card of upto 128GB. The handset supports Dolby ATMOS and Dolby Audio Capture 5.1 for a stellar audio experience and comes with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner. The distinguishing feature of the PHAB 2 Plus (apart from its humongous display of course) is the dual-camera setup at the back. The device comes with two 13MP cameras at the back with an aperture of f/2.0, laser auto-focus and phase detection auto-focus. This dual camera setup allows you to click a photo and then superimpose the subject on any background that you want.
