Lifelong Free VPN Service for Online Security & Anonymity

With the increased penetration of internet in our everyday life, issues with online privacy and security are becoming a key concern. The data that we input through the internet is not as secure as we hope it to be. VPN creates a virtual link or an Internet tunnel that connects two physical networks in separate locations and is accessible to all users. Security is guaranteed as the data sent through the tunnel is encrypted – hence the term is “private.” This security feature guarantees that there is no possible malicious interception by third party, such as hacking or espionage. And the great news is that there is a Free VPN Service available online.

We posted about Bucklor earlier and they have now released a totally free VPN service. It is not a watered-down version or a demo version. The free VPN service by Bucklor comes with all the features of a regular VPN service.

How To Install SSH Server As Root On Android 4.4 KitKat

One of the first thing any advanced user should do after installing Android on their mini-pc is to install an SSH Server to enable remote-access from a computer for faster and easier tweaking, one can simply opt for an free SSH Server app from Google Play like SSHelper for a no frill, click-n-install SSH access to your Android box. However, if you prefer a GUI-less access with FULL-ROOT privileges from both WinSCP and Putty follow the tutorial shard ahead.

Unofficial Custom Android 4.4.2 KitKat ROM For Radxa Rock

One of the biggest advantage of Radxa Rock the quad-core mini-pc over Raspberry Pi is that it supports dual-booting with support for both Linux and Google Android. In last tutorial we configured Samba file-sharing on Ubuntu based Linaro Linux image on the Rock, and today I am going to share an excellent custom Google Android 4.4.2 KitKat ROM for Radxa Rock which works well with everything working out of the box.

If you are thinking why Android when we have a full-desktop OS like Linaro (based on Ubuntu) running on some powerful hardware, then the answer is because Linux still lacks Hardware Acceleration support for Mali-400 GPU on RK3188 based devices like Rock. An experimental Ubuntu Desktop release with OpenGL ES acceleration for Radxa Rock is released but it is still experimental and XBMC still does not work with it. Radxa has also released a preview image of Android 4.4 KitKat but once again it is also half-baked and lacks Root support, luckily we do have an alternative custom Android 4.4 ROM for Radxa ROCK with features like - stock 4.4.0 recovery, CWM 6.0.3.1 recovery, system ext4 support, selinux kernel, ethernet support, init.d support, gameloft compatible, USB-Hub enabled, gamepad compatible (PS2, XBox, …), pre-built kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, audio), latest hosts, su, su-binary and busybox, Reboot Menu, sEFix, FX Sound, File Manager HD 0root), Google Now and Nova Launcher.

[Video] Bio-organically Derived NanoDot Smartphone Battery Recharges In 30 Seconds

StoreDotThere has been some exciting new developments in the battery technology which powers our mobile life today, the promising COTA Wireless charging and the super-thin LithiumCard portable battery pack are some such examples. While exciting they do not address the biggest hassle of using a battery - the long recharging time, but soon this is going to be taken care of thanks to the new "Nano Technology" powered smartphone battery which recharges in 30 seconds.

Based on the StoreDot Nanodot, the first bio-organic nano crystal ever discovered which are only 2 nanometers bio-organic peptide molecules in size, the batteries derived from these NanoDots are not only bio-organic but due to their size, have both increased electrode capacitance and electrolyte performance, resulting in batteries that can be fully charged in minutes rather than hours. The company has already released a public video demonstrating this ground-breaking development, showing a smartphone battery getting fully-recharged in 30 seconds flat.
