With growing censorship and regulations threatening global internet freedom and security, in turn, we’ve seen an increasing number of services become available to protect your online web browsing.Virtual Private Networks (or VPNs) have become increasingly popular in recent years for their ability to bypass government censorship and geo-blocked websites and services, and do so without giving away who is doing the bypassing.While technically created by a VPN, the tunnel on its own can’t be considered private unless it’s accompanied with encryption strong enough to prevent governments or ISPs from intercepting and reading your internet activity.The level of encryption the VPN tunnel has depends on the type of tunneling protocol used to encapsulate and encrypt the data going to and from your device and the internet.Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is one of the oldest protocols still being used by VPNs today.Developed by Microsoft and released with Windows 95, PPTP encrypts your data in packets and sends them through a tunnel it creates over your network connection.

One of the oldest parts of Microsoft’s modern development platform is SharePoint.The successor to its original ASP-based Site Server intranet tool, SharePoint is a lot more than another enterprise content management tool.While it’s often ignored, left to host files and internal web content, at heart it’s an effective tool for building and managing workflows, with its own programming model and tools.Our businesses are a lot more than their inputs and their outputs.They’re complex sets of information and material flows that link individuals, teams, and business processes.Much of that structure has developed organically, evolving as the business has grown, making it hard to map and harder still to add automation.

Futurist Faith Popcorn, founder and CEO of marketing trend shop BrainReserve, is kicking off the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity later this month with a declaration: Masculinity as we know it is changing.Ever the provocateur, Popcorn is touting her panel with a new zine, The Future of Masculinity, with a can’t-miss cover: Male genitalia have been dressed up as lipsticks, flowers, ice cream cones and more.We’re going to be asking why men are in such pain, why they account for 70 percent of suicides, if it gets better, what the definition of new masculinity is, who are the icons of new masculinity … how we raise kids, where does gender fluidity come in?Men are more active in preparing food for the household.The direction they are moving in, asking questions about what it means to be a man, [that’s what brands should look at].A lot of these splits are artificial and just made for marketing.

It’s the world’s largest gaming event this week but even before things formally started, old Electronics Art already dropped a few things for those hungry for the latest and juiciest gaming news.And there was definitely a lot, unsurprisingly, ranging from the well-timed FIFA 19 soccer/football game to new Star Wars content.To save you the hassle of digging through the haystack, here are the noteworthy announcements EA made over the weekend.The Destiny-like action RPG is a completely new franchise, which makes it all the more curious and interesting to both gamers and critics alike.In the meantime, have all we have to go on is a new cinematic trailer.That’s right, Battlefield V is going to have a battle royale mode, though details are still very thin at this point.

LIV Watches is a crowdfunding darling with a number of Kickstarted watches under its belt.Now it’s offering a unique set of watches to backers, including the Liv Genesis GX-AC, an automatic chronograph with date.The watch runs a Sellita Caliber SW500, visible through the see-through back, and features a screw down crown and massive metal pushers.The company prides itself on the size of its watches and this piece is no exception.The GX-AC isn’t wildly big – at 46mm it’s just a bit bigger than most Android Wear watches – and it fits nicely thanks to a rounded rubber band that hugs the top and bottom of the case.There is a small running seconds hand at nine-o’clock and registers for minutes and hours at noon and six.

Brazilian startup Cobli has specialized in technological solutions for vehicle fleet monitoring and management.The project is based on machine learning, an application of artificial intelligence, and had the support)= from the São Paulo Research Foundation - FAPESP through its Innovative Research in Small Business Program (PIPE http://www.bv.fapesp.br/en/3)."The algorithm uses the data collected to establish a driving profile with more than 90% accuracy," says engineer Rodrigo Mourad, a partner and co-founder of Cobli.According to Mourad, in one or two weeks of use, the system can glean a sufficient amount of data - on speed, acceleration, braking and curve angles - to produce a profile of the driver's vehicle handling habits.The system also collects data on location (via GPS) and vehicle performance, generating information that can be accessed by a smartphone or tablet."Hardware is a static solution, whereas logistics is dynamic," he argues.

Google has signalled it is getting more serious about this whole cloud thing with the beta availability of sole-tenant nodes in Google Compute Engine.The move allows users to create virtual machines on Compute Engine servers allocated for their dedicated use, effectively reserving their own hardware (at least while they pay their bills.)VMs normally run over many physical host servers that are shared by many diverse customers.By introducing single-tenant nodes, Google addresses the regulatory and compliance needs of organisations that need physical separation in the cloud.Finance, pharmaceutical and government customers will be noting the decision with interest.The move also makes sense in a post-Meltdown and Spectre world, where cloud vendors have had to scramble to apply patches to prevent nefarious processes wandering into memory areas they shouldn't.

Lyft today announced it’s redesigning its rider app to put more emphasis on sharing your ride — and to remind you the bus is also available.What it is: Among other new features, Lyft announced it would offer more options for users to share rides with each other if they’re going to the same destination.The app automatically compares prices between the options.This new mode is a successor to Lyft Line, the daily carpooling feature that allowed you to ride with people going your way for a discounted price.According to its press release, the company plans to make at least half of all Lyft rides Shared by the end of 2020.Another major part of the redesign is integrating with public transit.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg Justin Sullivan/GettyA difference in company cultures and philosophies has sprouted intra-office issues among some Facebook and WhatsApp employees, according to The Wall Street Journal.The companies, which were built separately, were brought together following Facebook's 2014 acquisition of WhatsApp.The employee issues aren't based on code or company plans: Some Facebook employees ridicule WhatsApp's secrecy, and resent the bigger desks and nicer bathrooms that were granted to WhatsApp when it moved to their campus last year.The Journal also reports there have been significant clashes between WhatsApp's founders and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg.Facebook and WhatsApp, two companies built separately and on vastly different philosophical foundations, are having some trouble making their employees live harmoniously under the same roof, according to The Wall Street Journal's Kirsten Grind and Deepa Seetharaman.

The Chinese phone maker – Vivo will be holding a launch event in Shanghai, China on June 12, and it has now been confirmed that the Vivo APEX concept phone that caused a stir at the MWC earlier this year will be the highlight of the event.However, the latest development may mean the device won’t be alone, as a new Vivo phone has just been spotted on the Geekbench database.A new vivo phone with model number 1808 has not only just passed through the Geekbench test, it has also secured the requisite certification from Eurasian Economic Commission in Europe (along with model vivo 1803) and Ecomm in Malaysia which indicates that its launch may not be far away.Interestingly, the device much like the Xiaomi Cactus and Cereus has the unannounced MediaTek MT6765 chipset coupled with 3GB of RAM on board.The newly tested Vivo 1808 ran Android 8.0.0 Oreo and managed to return a managed to return total points of 837 on GeekBench’s single-core benchmark test, in addition to a score of 3645 on the multi-core test, and these are indications that the device might be a mid-range, but hopefully, we’ll find out more when the device is made official.

Database admin pilot fish knows this company's systems inside and out after 20 years with them, and he's a bit annoyed when his boss brings in a consultant for the latest project."I suspect there's an unspoken practice of discrimination against me due to my age," fish says."I don't claim to know everything, but I know enough to have kept things running without incident during my time here, and when I'm stuck I know who to reach out to."Recently my manager requested a meeting with me, the consultant and other managers to discuss my proposal for the project, which included the liberal use of stored procedures on the SQL Server."The consultant shook his head and loudly said that we needed to start using CLR in SQL Server, and that it would be easy to use: Just write the procedure offline, compile it and then integrate it into SQL Server."My manager was highly impressed, and looked at me smugly and said, 'It would be good for us to use state-of-the-art design.'

Less than a month after announcing its “hateful content” and “hateful conduct” policy, Spotify is backing down from one half of the equation.Following staunch criticism, the company has issued updates to its guidelines, noting that the roll out arrived in contrast to the company’s own longstanding policies.In a news release the company acknowledged that the initial implementation was “too vague,” creating confusion around precisely what shape it would ultimately take.“We created concern that an allegation might affect artists’ chances of landing on a Spotify playlist and negatively impact their future,” the service writes.“Some artists even worried that mistakes made in their youth would be used against them.”The “hateful conduct” aspect focused on issues involving artists’ personal lives, and Spotify also appeared to make a point to single out two musician — R. Kelly and XXXTentacion — in the process.

Each year in June, just about every head in the tech world starts dutifully craning toward California to see what genius Apple will come up with next at WWDC.But this June, there's a whole other world of tech happening outside the US.Forget WWDC, forget E3, forget Silicon Valley -- if you want to see how the rest of the world really does technology, you need to get off the US west coast and take a flight across the Pacific.Specifically, you need to go to Taipei.Asia's biggest tech show, in the busy capital of Taiwan, is not only the spring board for some of the year's biggest PC launches and technology announcements -- where powerhouses like Asus, HTC and Nvidia show off new laptops, gaming gear, chips and VR kit to best their global rivals.This is the time of year when a whole other tech game is played outside Silicon Valley.

The 500px platform is shutting the doors of its stock photo marketplace — but it’s a move that the company says will help give the photographers on the platform more exposure.That’s because 500px has just signed an agreement with Getty Images as an exclusive distribution partnership, with the exception of China.Announced on May 31, the agreement between Getty and 500px will go into effect on July 1.The Visual China Group, a company that acquired 500px earlier this year, will maintain exclusive distribution rights in China.As with the 500px marketplace, users on the 500px platform can choose to opt out of making shared images available for sale.The agreement doesn’t, however, change the royalty rates or the process for submitting images to sell through 500px.

Google is ramping up its efforts to return to China.Earlier this year, the search giant detailed plans to bring its ARCore technology — which enables augmented reality and virtual reality — to phones in China and this week that effort went live with its first partner, Xiaomi.Initially the technology will be available for Xiaomi’s Mix 2S devices via an app in the Xiaomi App Store, but Google has plans to add more partners in Mainland China over time.Huawei and Samsung are two confirmed names that have signed up to distribute ARCore apps on Chinese soil, Google said previously.Google’s core services remain blocked in China but ARCore apps are able to work there because the technology itself works on device without the cloud, which means that once apps are downloaded to a phone there’s nothing that China’s internet censors can do to disrupt them.Rather than software, the main challenge is distribution.

Last night, at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in LA, Jeff Bezos took the opportunity to announce that The Expanse, one of the best scifi shows on TV (if not the best, by many accounts), will find a new home on Amazon for its fourth season.Its third season is currently airing on Syfy, and news of Syfy’s impending cancellation of the series was met with a huge fan outcry, and heavy speculation of a revival on another network or platform.Congrats, fans: you were right.“We couldn’t be more excited that ‘The Expanse’ is going to continue on Amazon Prime,” said Alcon Entertainment co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, whose company produces and finances the show.“We are deeply grateful that Jeff Bezos, Jen Salke, and their team at Amazon have shown such faith in our show.We also want to thank Laura Lancaster, head of Alcon Television for her tireless efforts.

The Trump administration told lawmakers it reached a deal to keep Chinese phone maker ZTE in business, a person familiar with the matter told The New York Times.The deal, which was arranged by the Commerce Department, requires ZTE to pay a "substantial" fine, hire American compliance officers and change its management team.The Commerce Department, in return, would lift an order that currently prevents the company from buying American products.ZTE, the fourth-largest smartphone maker in the US, has been dealing with the seven-year ban after the government determined ZTE violated terms of a 2017 settlement by failing to properly reprimand employees involved with illegally shipping US equipment to Iran and North Korea.The ban forced ZTE to shut down its "major operating activities."The Commerce Department's new deal would permit the company to once again do business with US companies including chipmaker Qualcomm, which is a key supplier to ZTE.
