Hackers see small businesses as easy targets, but you can bolster your defences by enabling two-factor authentication on your online accounts.
Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security that can stop intruders breaking into your accounts, even if they know the password. With two-factor authentication enabled, access to your account relies on something you know – your login and password – and something you have.
The something you have can be a range of things. Often it’s your smartphone, with a single-use code sent to you as a text message. You need to enter both your password and the one-time code in order to access your account; just one isn’t enough. This locks... Read More
The right projector for your office makes it easier to sell your big ideas on the big screen.
Regardless of how articulate you are, sometimes it’s more powerful to show people what you mean rather than just telling them.

Scams were much easier to spot when they promised you that you’d won the lottery or inherited millions. Then there are the pleas to help smuggle riches stolen from a third world dictator. All these scams are basically variations on a theme, trying to con you into handing over some money up front to set the wheels in motion and then running off with your cash rather than delivering the promised riches.
These days, scams are a lot more subtle, plus they go out of their way to target businesses. Usually they’re either trying to fool you into paying a bogus invoice, or else trick you into opening an infected attachment or clicking on a malicious link to ransomware – which encrypts all your important files and demands money for their release.
Bogus invoices come in all forms, hoping to... Read More
Amazon looks all set to launch a 3D Smart phone on 18th June. The high-end smart phone will apparently be able to display 3D images without the need for special glasses.
Although the Kindle fire has been very successful for Amazon, the smartphone market is extremely competitive with the likes of Apple and Samsung dominating.
