If you've found yourself with some unexpected spending money thanks to a timely investment in crypto — or maybe you’re just looking to stop HODLing and cash out before the next market downturn — you might as well turn that found money into something you’d like.

Why you need a secret phone number (and how to get one)
June 17, 2021 at 2:08 am 0
Privacy Please is an ongoing series exploring the ways privacy is violated in the modern world, and what can be done about it. Your phone number was never meant to be an all-access pass to your life.  That 10-digit string has likely followed you around the world and across the internet for years. Over the course of that time, you've almost certainly handed it out — willingly or otherwise — to every person, restaurant, social media platform, or online store that's asked. That's a problem. For someone with the right motivation, that number is a thread which, once pulled, can unravel your entire digital life — crashing down your privacy, bank account, or even your very identity.

5 critical features to consider when choosing your hosting provider
June 17, 2021 at 2:08 am 0
So, you or your client has finally pulled the trigger on a business license, brainstormed a genius blog idea, or purchased a domain name that promises to be the gateway to your future fortune. Now, it’s time to get your website up and running. But before you launch into copy, design, and development, you have to decide one small detail: Where will you host your site? Hosting may not sound like the sexiest part of building a website, but it’s one of the most important choices you’ll make. After all, your hosting service determines where in cyberspace your website will actually live — kind of like its virtual apartment (the domain is merely the address). And as anyone with noisy upstairs neighbours can attest, real estate is all about location, location, location — even online.
