Our Hands on ViewSonic VX2363Smhl-W Widescreen LCD Monitor

Posted by News Room On Tuesday, December 22, 2015 0 comments
Finally we got our hand on the VIEWSONIC VX2363Smhl-W Monitor, to make it affordability and to balance between quality ViewSonic has combined the Image Quality, and few features, I can say this the ViewSonic VX2363Smhl is an absolute joy to use. Build quality is good, it has a white body with design for bezels. The frameless design gives the VX2363Smhl a classy and a clean look. It allows only for tilt adjustment and I cannot complain much coz at this price we cannot expect more.
The monitors has 5 buttons that control the monitors powers and
settings, it has 1.5 watt speakers at the rear with a Kensington lock slot, and connectors for power Port, 2 HDMI port (2.0MHL & 1.0), VGA port and Audio In & out port, beside all these it also includes AC/DC adaptor, power cable, VGA cable and HDMI cable and an Audio cable all these inclusions makes the setting any easy one and also added the value of the monitor. The VX2363Smhl-W uses a 1080p IPS panel, albeit a lower-speed 6-bit one, which, when combined with the monitor’s, Super Clear Image Enhancement Technology, 50M:1 MEGA Dynamic, and 2ms (GTG) response time, makes for quite the combination of color reproduction, viewing angles, contrast, and performance for gaming and its color reproduction and contrast are both expectedly impressive.
 
Playing game on this Monitor was quite comfortable, as it uses an IPS panel which usually comes with response times as high as 12ms, (GTG). The response time is both incredibly welcome and remarkable. We were also quite happy with how smooth the output on the monitor was in spite of having a standard refresh rate of 60Hz. The built in speakers performed a lot better than I had expected.
 
I would like to recommend to my readers if anyone needs a quite descend monitor not too heavy on the pocket, and looking for an affordable 23 inch 1080p IPS monitor. This is a superb monitor for anyone – and a bonus to those looking for a cheaper way into triple-screen gaming.

APPLE INTRODUCES SMART BATTERY CASE FOR IPHONE 6 AND IPHONE 6S

Posted by Tech News On Saturday, December 19, 2015 0 comments
One of the things Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus are popular for are their battery life, but on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S, battery endurance is sadly not a bullet point on the list of pros. The Cupertino giant is no doubt aware that its 4.7-inch iPhones aren’t as long-lasting as their Plus counterparts, so it has made its debut in the smartphone battery pack market with an official battery case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S.



Apple is calling it the Smart Battery Case, and is touting an additional 18 hours of web browsing on an LTE connection, 20 hours of video playback, and up to 25 hours of talk time. The case – rated at 1,877 mAh – is charged with the company’s proprietary Lightning cable, and once connected to an iPhone, the battery level of the case and the phone itself will be visible in the phone’s notifications center. If both the battery case and iPhone are at 100 percent battery level, the former’s battery will be depleted before the phone switches to the internal battery.
The Smart Battery Case will be available in charcoal and white for USD99.

Symantec today announced plans to beef up its Cyber Security Services business

Posted by Tech News On Sunday, December 6, 2015 0 comments
Symantec Corp., one of the leaders in cybersecurity, today announced plans to beef up its Cyber Security Services business globally with an investment of more than US$50 million. A portion of this investment has been leveraged to build a new dedicated Security Operations Center (SOC) in Singapore, inaugurated today, doubling Symantec’s Cyber Security Service expertise in the Asia-Pacific region.



Now more than ever, organizations require a deeper security understanding and strong proactive security measures to gain the upper hand on adversaries. Symantec’s SOCs analyze 30 billion logs worldwide each day to provide enterprise-wide protection to help organizations strengthen their defenses and respond to new threats as they emerge 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

With the launch of the SOC in Singapore, businesses will have access to intelligence, accurate threat detection and proactive notification of emerging threats to ensure their most sensitive data is protected. The new SOC will also enable businesses to shorten the time between detection and response, reduce operational costs and proactively counter emerging threats.

“Today, technology alone may not stop advanced threats. Organizations need security experts on hand to interpret and prioritize the critical events that need action. By investing in people and security IQ in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific, Symantec is expanding its visibility into the region, enabling us to bolster customers’ security operations capabilities, and protect their critical information and assets,” said Samir Kapuria, SVP and general manager of Cyber Security Services at Symantec.

“The Asia-Pacific region is incredibly diverse and multi-cultural. This allows us to attract highly educated multi lingual security professionals who bring expertise and experience from many vertical industries and global security organizations and are well-versed in the security landscape,” added Kapuria.

Last year Symantec’s team of cyber professionals protected organizations from more than half a million web attacks per day, according to the 2015 Internet Security Threat Report. The investment will enable the company to expand its Chennai, India SOC as well as the Tokyo, Japan SOC. The next phase of the company’s SOC expansion will take place in Europe, with more facilities expected to open within the next 12 months. Once complete, Symantec will have eight SOCs worldwide, extending their current team of 500+ certified cybersecurity professionals to address every stage of the cyber-attack lifecycle.

Symantec has also invested significantly in its cyber services-enabling technology, including big data analytics and distributed computing. With an increasing demand to manage customers’ security environments with Security as a Service, Symantec Cyber Security Services offers a strong portfolio, including Managed Security Services, DeepSight Intelligence, Incident Response and Security Simulation training. This announcement follows a US$20 million investment in existing SOCs across Australia, India and Japan in the past year.
