Logitech's Protective Case For iPad Air 2

Photo Credit :

Logitech has announced the Logitech Type+, a protective case with an integrated keyboard for the new iPad Air 2.
The new Logitech Type+ takes the design of our most popular thin, light and two-sided protection that helps guard your iPad from the accidental bumps, scratches and spills. And now it features an improved Bluetooth keyboard. 
The company has designed the new keyboard to replicate the typing experience and layout you would have on your laptop. This is made possible by optimizing the distance between its keys, and adding a dedicated row of iOS shortcuts that put navigation of your iPad at your fingertips without needing to reach out and touch your iPad’s screen. 
The Logitech Type+ keyboard also has an automatic On/Off feature; when the iPad is positioned upright, the Logitech Type+ automatically turns on, and when it’s closed, it automatically turns off. In addition, the auto-wake and auto-sleep feature turns your iPad off when you close the case and wakes it when you open the case so your iPad is ready anytime you need it.   
IT Leaders Reveal Harsh Realities 
93 per cent of Indian CIOs and CTOs believe the job of keeping their enterprise protected is becoming more challenging, according to new research from Fortinet, a global leader in high-performance network security. Serious boardroom pressure to keep the enterprise secure has jumped almost one-third in the last 12 months, making security paramount and a primary consideration over other business initiatives.  
This and other findings come from an independent survey commissioned by Fortinet on 504 enterprise IT decision makers (ITDMs) in the Asia Pacific countries of Australia, China, India, Japan and South Korea. This was part of a bigger survey of over 1,600 ITDMs, largely from 500+ employee organizations, around the world. All respondents were sourced from independent market research company Lightspeed GMI's online panel.  
Consumers Consider Cutting US-Based Internet Services Post-Snowden
On the heels of Edward Snowden’s advice to switch from Dropbox, Facebook and Google to services that place a high priority on security and privacy, F-Secure is releasing survey results that show that many people are willing to do just that. The survey, which polled people in six countries, also shows that a majority of people have changed some of their Internet habits in recent months due to increased privacy concerns.
In a recent video interview, whistleblower Snowden cautioned viewers, saying such major Internet services are dangerous and should be avoided. And in fact, 53 per cent of survey respondents said they’d be willing to switch from services like Google to other more private services to avoid search-based profiling. 56 per cent of people also said they have become more wary of US-based Internet services in the past year. 46 per cent of people said they would be willing to pay to be sure that none of their personal data transits via the US. And 70 per cent said they are concerned about the potential of mass surveillance by intelligence agencies in countries through which their data may be passing.
FireEye Releases Report on Cyber Espionage Group 
The leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, on Thursday (30 October) released a comprehensive intelligence report that assesses that an advanced persistent threat (APT) group may be sponsored by the Russian government.
A Window into Russia’s Cyber Espionage Operations details the work of a team of skilled Russian developers and operators, designated by FireEye as APT28, that has been interested in collecting information from defense and geopolitical intelligence targets including  the Republic of Georgia, Eastern European governments and militaries, and European security organizations, all areas of particular interest to the Russian government.
This FireEye report offers details that likely link APT28: a threat group whose malware is already fairly well-known in the cybersecurity community with a government sponsor based in Moscow, exposing long-standing, focused operations that indicate government backing.
The report includes malware samples compiled by FireEye that indicate that the developers are Russian language speakers who are operating during business hours consistent with the time zone of Russia’s major cities, including Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Flash Drive For Smartphones
ADATA Technology, a leading global manufacturer of high-performance DRAM memory modules and NAND Flash application products, on Thursday announced the launch of UC330 Dual USB Flash Drive featuring dual micro USB and standard USB interfaces in India. Available in 8, 16 and 32GB sizes, the UC330 Dual USB allows one to share and backup data between PC, tablet, phablet, or smart phone at prices rivaling built-in storage found on some mobile phones.

Crafted of zinc alloy with a silver finish, ADATA's Choice UC330 Dual USB Flash Drive weighs only 3.6 grams and comes with a black end cap fitted with a strap hole so you can easily carry the flash drive on a lanyard, keychain or neck strap. As you use the rocket-shaped UC330, its cap fits on either side of its dual-headed USB. When not in use, stand it up on its end for easy storage on your desktop like a rocket awaiting lift-off. Manufactured with a special chip-on-board (COB) process, resulting in high water and impact resistance, your UC330 flash drive is engineered for utmost quality and reliability.
To copy files to or from your mobile device, simply plug the UC330's OTG-compliant micro USB connector into your Android mobile phone or tablet. Then allow your phone to detect the UC330 and transfer your files at speeds much faster and more securely than a Bluetooth connection. When finished copying, disconnect the UC330 from your mobile device and plug the standard USB end of the dual-headed UC330 into your desktop or notebook PC. Use the Choice UC330 Dual USB Flash Drive to copy files just as easily from PC to mobile device also.
