5 network security tips to prepare yourself against incoming cyber threats

5 network security tips to prepare yourself against incoming cyber threats

The recent Singhealth data breach has put personal data security under the microscope. 1.5 million people were affected by the cyberattack, of which 160,000 had outpatient prescriptions stolen.  While incidents like this are not something commonly seen and are hard to account for, we have the power to prepare ourselves from further attacks that occur in our own home. One out of five Singaporeans own at least one smart device, and it is highly likely that we have inputted our personal information while using said devices. We run the risk of exposing ourselves to similar attacks from cybercriminals if we…

Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector Review: Projecting Small Margins

Portability is the ongoing trend right now, with consumers sometimes preferring a device’s portable qualities over it having the best specs; a common occurrence in the laptop market. So who’s to say that projectors can’t follow this trend? Canon certainly thinks so and has thus come up with the Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector. Forget about those large, bulky projectors that hung over your head in class during the days when you were still in school, the Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector dwarfs those monsters by a considerable margin.  The square-like aesthetic is retained, albeit in a much smaller package,…

Synology DiskStation DS1019+ Review: The NAS device that comes close to greatness

With the advent of new technology for media (photography and videography), file sizes are continuously getting larger. Of course, expandable storage is readily available, but for professional users, the notion of having to switch out and move around storage regularly may frustrate some. Enter Network Attached Storage (NAS). NAS devices are essentially storage devices that are connected to a network. This allows a person to access the drive from any device (Mac or PC), from any location, allowing for ease of use. Synology is one of the companies who manufactures such NAS devices, and the Synology DiskStation DS1019+ is the…

Most Singaporean households come with an air conditioning unit. Or two. Or more. It makes sense that the Ambi Climate, an A.I-powered AC controller would be a good fit for almost any home.

Synology MR2200ac Mesh Router Review: Not futureproof yet, but definitely a top contender for mid-tier mesh routers

Have you ever experienced weaker WiFi signals in certain parts of your home or office? If yes, you’ve come into contact with a “dead zone”, which most often occur because of walls, doors, or structures blocking the WiFi signal. Many consumers opt for solutions such as WiFi repeaters – which pick up and retransmit WiFi signals to extend their range – but that may not help the situation much, depending on their placement which is also largely limited by the locations of the available wall sockets. If you’re looking for a solution that helps improve connectivity and your overall quality…

Google Home Review: A Promising Look Into Home Life of the Future

Many may find it weird to speak to an inanimate object, let alone have it respond back to you. But with the rise of personal artificial intelligence assistants like Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and the Google Assistant, what was once thought of as an odd habit a decade ago is slowly becoming the norm. While the idea of speaking to someone – or something – that doesn’t exist in a physical form is alien to some, I am quite keen on exploring the possibilities of this new phenomenon, which adds more than just convenience. I can foresee it becoming a…
