Energizer XP4001 Portable Charger Hands on Review (10)

I often go to malls in the afternoon so me and my husband need to have our cell phones with us because in busy days at the supermarket we have to split and call each other so we don’t get lost. As I need 4 hours of wandering through shops to feel satisfied, I have to leave home early and sometimes I find my phone’s battery almost empty. When that happens, I ask my husband to wait at least half an hour to charge the phone a bit before leaving. That’s annoying for someone for whom time matters, but with a portable charger the problem is solved, finally! Read more

Focalprice Digital Caliper Hands on Review (3)

Making Your Emails More Secure With Digital IDs

Making Your Emails More Secure With Digital IDsDid you know that normal emails are about as secure as sending a postcard? When you send an email, you are sending a message that is usually routed through several mail servers, each one easily capable of logging the contents of your email. If you care about your online security, then you will know that sending any kind of sensitive data via an email is asking for trouble. However, there are ways to make your email more trusted, and also encrypt your emails so that you can send sensitive data via email without worrying about people – or machines – reading your emails. If you use a digital certificate to secure your emails, the recipients of your emails can be sure that you are the person who sent it. If you have also encrypted the email, they can also be sure that no-one else has read it on the way.

By digitally signing your emails with a Digital ID, you are showing the recipients of your emails that they can trust you. The certificates that you can get are usually recognized by many popular email clients, such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird and so on. Read more
