    In this day and age, with hacking and the theft of data – whether it be cloud-based or physically stored – being more prominent and widespread than ever before, protecting that data has taken on an even greater level of importance. Rather than being an afterthought, computer security has well and truly been forced to front of people’s minds. Accordingly, a sizeable industry has sprung up around providing relevant security solutions. iStorage are one of the smart companies who have seized this opportunity.

  • The diskAshur² Review

    Having data stored in a portable device can offer many benefits, particularly if you regularly move from one location to another. Much easier to transport around than a laptop and with a larger memory than a tablet, portable USB devices offer a huge amount of convenience, but lack security. Until now…. The diskAshur² is a beast of a device, offering up to 2 TB of storage. However, while there’s a definite capacity, the huge news is that it is hot on security too. There are other devices which offer encryption, but it is rare to find hardware that’s as well locked down as The diskAshur². However, what’s beneath that quirky rubber exterior? Here’s a closer look. The basics  Developed, designed…

  • The datAshur PRO Review

    In the modern world, it’s far more convenient to hold information digitally and one of the simplest ways to achieve this is with the use of a USB flash drive.  Easy to use, compact in size and convenient to transport, it’s now possible to save vast amounts of data on one small stick.

  • Can The Future of Gaming Help Conquer The Obesity Crisis?

    The very concept of losing weight is rather simple, yet it’s an issue many face within the modern world we live. Whilst gaming is mentally engaging, it is often blamed as an activity that encourages weight gain. However, this myth is about to be debunked. Let’s begin.

Each induvial has a different need and there are many factors involved, such as age, gender and height. Thus, the activities you enjoy can help promote weight loss, but they certainly don’t contribute to weight-gain directly.

  • The Best External HDDs for PS4 Owners

    Ever since the PS4 came out, players have been concerned over the amount of storage space on the console. The standard PS4 hard drive only accommodates around 500GB or 1TB of space.

Until recently, gamers who wanted to boost their storage capacity have often been restricted to the default hard drive upgrade of up to 2TB. However, ever since the PS4 software upgrade 4.5 established support for external hard drives, gamers have been rushing to set…
