Six months later, Google’s Pixel 2 is still one of the best phones in the world

It’s hard to overstate how good Google’s Pixel line of smartphones are. For my money, they’re the best smartphones available. The gorgeous Pixel 2.Ben Gilbert / Business Insider They run a clean, sleek, fast operating system. They have great cameras for capturing sharp, vibrant photos and video. They cost far less than the competition — literally hundreds of dollars less than the closest equivalent Apple iPhone. The Pixel line looks great, but still prioritizes function over needless visual upgrades. I’ve been using the Pixel 2 for a few weeks now, transitioning from the Pixel 1 directly, and I’m convinced it’s the best smartphone available — with one caveat. Here’s why: 1. Price: At $650, it’s the best value for any flagship smartphone. Holl...

‘We’re in a bind’: Ad agencies see freelancer rates rise quickly

California agencies are starting to feel stifled by a new ruling that makes it harder to classify a freelancer as a freelancer, but there’s another issue ad agencies face: rising freelancer rates. Agencies are finding that freelancers are becoming costlier as project-based work becomes the cornerstone of agency work. The rising freelancer costs can be seen across all types of agency work — from strategists to developers. Because the industry is choked of talent, some agencies have no choice but to meet freelancers at their pitch. Yet the consequences of doing so are not ideal. In some instances, it might result in agencies pushing up their own rates for clients, making them less competitive in the market. Or, because freelancers can come in to help on a variety of projects such as retainer...

Kodi SHOCK – Lengthy jail sentence handed out as piracy crackdown continues

Kodi crackdown continues as lengthy jail sentence handed out KODI add-on fans have been put on alert after a lengthy jail sentence was handed out in the UK. The Kodi crackdown continues as a court in Britain has issued a hefty jail sentence to scammers that profited from illegal Kodi add-ons. Research has suggested Kodi – which offers access to thousands of channels – is being used in more than five million UK homes. Kodi software is not illegal, but developers can produce third-party add-ons that provide free access to pirated and illegal content. These apps allow users to stream premium content, like paid-for sports, movie channels and TV shows for free. The illegal add-ons are being targeted by ISPs, government agencies, broadcasters and rights holders. And now a court in Wa...

FBI tells router users to reboot now to kill malware infecting 500k devices

  Linksys The FBI is advising users of consumer-grade routers and network-attached storage devices to reboot them as soon as possible to counter Russian-engineered malware that has infected hundreds of thousands devices.

The detailed report said the malware infected more than 500,000 devices made by Linksys, Mikrotik, Netgear, QNAP, and TP-Link. Known as VPNFilter, the malware allowed attackers to collect communications, launch attacks on others, and permanently destroy the devices with a single command.

Facebook and Google hit with $8.8 billion in lawsuits on day one of GDPR

On the first day of GDPR enforcement, Facebook and Google have been hit with a raft of lawsuits accusing the companies of coercing users into sharing personal data. The lawsuits, which seek to fine Facebook 3.9 billion and Google 3.7 billion euro (roughly $8.8 billion in dollars), were filed by Austrian privacy activist Max Schrems, a longtime critic of the companies’ data collection practices. GDPR requires clear consent and justification for any personal data collected from users, and these guidelines have pushed companies across the internet to revise their privacy policies and collection practices. But there is still widespread uncertainty over how European regulators will treat the requirements, and many companies are still unprepared for enforcement. Both Google and Facebook have rol...

Set TV next target for antipiracy

Netflix And Amazon Join The Battle Against Kodi Pirates Ian Morris, CONTRIBUTOR   Set TV is a company that offers 500 channels of premium content for $20 per month. But it hasn’t found some startling new revenue stream, it’s showing unauthorized content from broadcasters like Disney, NBC and others according to a lawsuit filed in California this week. The service has apps that work with devices like Amazon’s own FireTV as well as Nvidia’s shield and pretty much any Android device. Kodi, the open source video streaming app is also a way to watch the Set TV streams, and while Kodi itself is legal it suffers a lot with plugins which are most certainly not. Amazon and Netflix have joined the likes of Disney and Paramount in fighting companies which infringe their copyright in this way. Th...

Call Blocking Apps: Where TCPA lawsuits are born

Consumers hate getting unwanted calls on their mobile phones so it is no surprise that call blocking apps have emerged as a popular category of smart phone app. Call Blocking apps give consumers control over unwanted calls and increase risk for telemarketers.

Many will also show you a spam score for the telemarketer who is calling, encouraging potential prospects to avoid taking your calls. These apps are available for Android, iPhone, and Windowsphones and Google Play has over 250 different apps. Across all of these apps, there are millions of active users.

What Is A Brand For A One-Person Business?

Steve Wasterval, Worstofall Design I recently spoke with a business owner, I’ll call ‘Jim’. Jim really knows his stuff. He speaks with passion, he’s highly educated, and he’s got a punchy tonality that engages audiences when he’s on stage. I’ve seen him captivate audiences of hundreds.But when you look him up online and go to his website, he’s entirely boring. His copy says the exact same thing that everyone in his industry is saying. He’s using the same type of graphics and identical design style down to the color (corporate dark blue, of course). And his intellectual, energetic (authentic) voice is entirely absent from any of the writing he does. It’s all completely disconnected from who he is in real life and what it is like to talk to and work with him. Because he’s two different peopl...
