LG patent filing envisions foldable smartphones

We have watched over the years as smartphone displays have increased in size, and starting last year, we watched as bezels shrank.

Why isn’t Trump only using the self-destructing phone Obama had?

Over the past few days, some of the biggest questions about our national cybersecurity have centered on one device: President Donald Trump's phone. ; Shortly after he reportedly traded in his main Twitter machine, an old-model, unsecured Android phone, for a "secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service," the famously tech averse executive appeared to still be using the unsecured device.

Private emails are back! But this time Hillary Clinton’s not involved.

There was a time, not so long ago, when cybersecurity seemed to be a major concern to the Republican Party.

VPN apps actually make it easier to track users, study finds

The simplest weapon that users have to fight data collection, whether by the NSA or Facebook, is a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN encrypts your internet traffic and reroutes it through a supposedly-anonymous server, which in theory makes it difficult or impossible to track an individual user. But a VPN's anonymity is only as good as the provider. Secretly setting up your own server, paid in cash, in a non-compromised data center would be the best case scenario. But that's impractial, so [Read Entire Story]
