If you’re interested in staying safe online than you’ve probably heard that DNS leaks are a real security risk. But what are they, exactly, and how can you protect yourself?
Every time you access a new website your system sends a DNS (Domain Name System) request to find the site’s server. These requests aren’t encrypted, which means your ISP, Wi-Fi hotspot owners, even snoopers hanging around your favorite coffeeshop might be able to log your browsing history.
You probably already knew you don’t technically own the majority of digital content you download on major platforms like Steam and Amazon Prime – instead, you’re paying for a license to access that content in a lot of cases.
This week, Amazon Prime Video reiterated this point as part of a motion to dismiss a lawsuit over allegations of unfair competition and false advertising. According to THR, the complaint argued that Amazon “secretly reserves the right” to stop users accessing content purchased through Prime Video.
The V8 Supercars 2020 season has now moved to Bathurst. With a day’s practice already under the belt, the heat haze is shimmering on the slopes of Mount Panorama.
The Bathurst 1000 is well and truly underway now, with the first Friday’s practice session having kicked off at 9:45am AEDT this morning (October 16). The afternoon session is at 12:10pm AEDT, after which the drivers will begin the qualifying session at 4:05pm AEDT.
Connectivity on the move is incredibly useful for everything from avoiding traffic jams to staying in touch to keeping the kids pacified in the back seat – and happily, adding a Wi-Fi hotspot and internet connectivity to any car is a breeze these days.
There are pros and cons to the various options for getting connected – and there’s a big difference between just setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot and having internet connectivity integrated a the car’s own systems. It’s also worth remembering that not all mobile data service providers are the same, and pricing and coverage do vary.
