Goose VPN: Two years of web browsing peace of mind, just $19.99

Have you ever attempted to use Google Chrome’s Incognito Mode? When you use it for the first time, you’re tempted to think that you’re hiding your user data from others — until it tells you that your wireless internet provider and other parties can still “see” you. While it doesn’t leave a web browsing trail, it doesn’t do much to disguise your web browsing activities from others. The data trackers can still see you online.When it comes to privacy and security, each person has a different idea of the concept. Some want to go completely off the trail and hide. Others don’t want to be bothered with sharing location information. Others want to just keep their browsing habits on the down low.Understanding all of this, your best bet is to get something that covers all of the bases. What you need is a service like Goose VPN.This software service will create a virtual private network with a strict no-logging policy so that you need not report where you are at any moment.

Google Pixel 4a pre-orders go live with August 20 availability

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more. Additionally, US carriers will offer the phone, including Google Fi, US Cellular, and Verizon.Customers who purchase the Pixel 4a receive three month free trials of YouTube Premium, Google Play Pass and Google One.Interestingly enough, the Google Pixel 4a appears to be offered in black only through Google’s online store. Other colors expected in the lead-up to announcement included white and blue. Perhaps various carriers and retailers will have different options.

Google begins dropping details on Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5

Today might be the official arrival of the Google Pixel 4a, but that doesn’t mean Google isn’t already looking to the horizon. Indeed, Google is ready to share details about the next few models in the pipeline.According to Google, the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5 will arrive “this fall” and both will feature 5G connectivity. Moreover, Google is already sharing its expected price for the former, putting it at just $499.Whether the true difference between the standard 4a and the 5G-ready version is 5G support remains unclear.Google often debuts its flagship Pixel phones in October, and that would definitely fit in thethis fall” timeline. However, with the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that the Pixel 4a arrived nearly three months later than expected, it’s hard to say for sure.As Google tells us both the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.If you’re interested in learning more about either of these phones, you can sign up to receive updates.

Or at least that’s how it appears.Google this week updated its “Made by Google” Facebook and Twitter accounts with new images and set up an interesting landing page at its online store. Part placeholder text (lorem ipsum), part fake words, it teases out a few features for the forthcoming device.https://store.google.com/intl/en/lorem-ipsum/Providing an image that looks like a phone wrapped in checkerboard pattern, the seemingly redacted description is actually a puzzle.Simply tap each square until it matches the Google logo colors (blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red) and it reveals text. Moreover, it reveals an August 3 that displays atop the phone.Originally expected in May, the Google Pixel 4a has been the subject of many leaks and rumors. Its features and specifications are all but certain, as is its price tag. With that said, we’ll be quite interested in the phone once it’s made available.If you dig through the placeholder text, you can suss out some of the details or selling points. In it are references to video chat, low-light capture, bokeh effects, and long-lasting batteries.Thanks to chatter and leaks over the last few months we have an idea as to what to expect. Specs are reported to include a 5.81-inch display, 6GB RAM, and at least 64GB storage capacity. Additionally, it is alleged to have Google’s Titan M security chip and feature the same video recording capabilities as the Pixel 4.As far as pricing goes, all signs point to a $399 starting cost for the phone with black, white, and blue shades.

Nebula Capsule II projector review

The dog days of summer are upon us and outdoor living is in full swing. For some of us this means taking our TV and movie experience to the patio or driveway for projecting media.The original Nebula Capsule has been a great device for family viewing on my patio over the last few years. I was pumped to be able to give the new Capsule II a shot from the Anker sub-brand over the last few weeks.How does the latest edition match up against the solid performer of the Capsule I? Overall, you’d be hard to say it hasn’t improved in almost every metric.DesignLet’s start with the industrial engineering behind the Nebula Capsule II. The overall size is larger than the previous generation. The original model was literally the size of a soda can. The Capsule II is more the size of a pint glass.This is not a knock on the Capsule II though. It’s still incredibly portable and can be used with any 1/4-inch tripod mount. As long as you have that, you can pretty much set up anywhere with the Capsule II.Specification wise, you will only get 720P HD resolution at 200 Lumens that can be canvased to a max screen of 100 inches. All this is presented under the wrapper of Android TV as the Capsule II operating system.Internally, you need a good engine if you take the Nebula Capsule II on the road. It has a combination of 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and a 9,700mAh battery. In addition, you have an 8-watt speaker to power the audio.Expandability is also an option with several inputs in the back of the Capsule II. You can use auxiliary audio via 3.5mm jack, full HDMI, USB 2.0, or USB-C to add additional inputs to your projection experience.Watching ContentSpeaking of experience, the addition of Android TV has made a world of difference between the first two generations of the Capsule II. The full Google Play Store and Chromecast make this a much more polished option for the end-user.The remote contributes to this as well. Having a full D-pad style remote with Google Assistant just makes finding content easier. The remote has a good weight and hand-feel. The buttons offer good feedback on button presses that are better than the first generation as well.All of your favorite apps are available that you’d normally see on Android TV with one glaring absence of Netflix. There are multiple rumors of the why including that Netflix has units produced minimum that the Nebula Capsule II hasn’t reached in volume, but it’s disheartening to not see it on the homepage.Thankfully, there are several options to get the Netflix app installed, but we recommend the official avenue of Nebula Manager offered directly from Anker. This allows you to install the app and walk you through adding it to your home screen.While many will fault the Capsule II for only having 720P resolution, I’ve had zero issues. The screen size is easily adjustable with a crisp output. The projector also has an auto-focus feature that will make getting the setup just right a hassle-free adventure.Battery LifeThe big selling point of the Nebula Capsule II is portability and you can’t have that without endurance. I’m happy to report that I’m consistently getting three hours of playback of the video. I will deduct a point or two that this is down a full hour from the smaller generation one unit. You’d think with a larger footprint, this could have at least stayed flat at four hours.Regardless, three hours gives you some great time to take in content with the family. It may be a little short for longer movies, but you have to go to bed sometime, right?Final ThoughtsI’ve loved my time with the Anker Nebula Capsule II. This projector should be on anyone’s shortlist for outdoor entertainment that can be easily set up and moved when done. Add the mass improvement of Android TV over the blown-up phone interface of the original, you have a new king of small projectors.The one drawback might be the price of $580. However, the quality of this projector combined with its portable design makes it uniquely valuable. You can purchase the Nebula II via Anker’s site directly or head to Amazon if you prefer.

EKSA E900 Pro Gaming Headset review

Headphones come in a wide variety of designs and usage cases. Suffice it to say, there’s not really a “one size fits all” for very many of us. The headphones we use at the gym might not be the same ones we’d turn to for long-term playlists or online gaming.Then there’s the topic of budget. Not everyone can afford a pair of premium cans for queuing up The Dark Side of the Moon.Finding the right model, and doing so within a reasonable budget, can be tough. Fortunately, there are brands like EKSA who create products that are not only flexible but which also stay on cheaper side of things. Take, for instance, its new E900 Pro.What is the EKSA E900 Pro?The EKSA E900 Pro Gaming Headset is a well-crafted tool that every gamer needs in his or her inventory. This listening device performs extremely well, and unlike most gaming headsets you see, comes with completely detachable and customizable setup options to ensure that it can be applied to any audible experience.The E900 Pro are versatile; it can go from being traditional headphones plugged into a phone one moment to a gaming-ready headset with a noise-canceling microphone for a PC the next.What’s included in the box?The headset bundle comes with the headphones, a detachable microphone, a lockable auxiliary cord, a USB-C to USB 3 adapter, and an auxiliary to audio and microphone splitter adapter. All of which can all be carried in its leather drawstring bag.Included with this headset and its physical accessories is a code for redeemable surround sound driver software that will enhance your gaming or casual listening experience, an extendable warranty (up to 24 months), and a redeemable gift option of another EKSA item (storage pouch), and a 40% coupon to be applied to your next purchase.Let’s talk setupThe setup is simple: all you have to do is unpack the headphones and cords, plug them into the appropriate ports, and start playing.It took me a couple of minutes to do that, but once you’ve associated yourself with each accessory, it’ll be super easy to take out and set up.The additional 7.1 Surround Sound software (which sadly only works with Windows users) can be downloaded on the Eksa website. The type of surround sound (Old vs Pro) depends on your unit’s serial number and seems to be randomly assigned.How about the design?The design of these headphones is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. The E900 Pro are extremely clean, polished-looking, compact, and easy to carry around. The red emblem on the outsides lights up if your USB cable is plugged in, giving it a bit of added flair. The memory form headband and ear cushions make these extremely comfortable to wear.And the sound?The sound quality of these headphones is surprisingly nice. From playing a game like Torchlight II or Fortnite to talking with friends on Discord and watching YouTube, the quality of the sound is great.It’s nice to be able to switch from 3.5mm headphone cable to USB and we really appreciate what happens when using the 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound. It would be nice, however, if that feature translated to the Xbox One or PS4.What about performance?The main reservations I have with the design are more or less what I’d term inconveniences or questionable choices.Take the mute button as an example. It is located near the back of the left headphone and is always confusing to me. It reads as a microphone with a slash through it, which I would assume as being mute. But when it is pushed in, it is, in fact, not mute.And another thing, the volume scroller (near the mute button) scrolls down to amplify volume and up to minimize volume. I suppose this could be pretty easily understood after a moment or two, or with regular usage, but in the heat of a game it seems counter-intuitive.Would you recommend the EKSA E900 Pro?Overall, this is a nice headset with a price that’s in line with expectation. Of course, they’re not perfect, but they are right for a middle-of-the-ground gamer such as myself.The sound quality is nice, the design is cool, compact, and extremely comfortable, and they’re compatible with most mainstream gaming consoles.If you’re just dipping your toes into the gaming water, or want to step up from the headphones that came with your console, these are a good starting point.These headphones can be bought online at Eksa’s official website for about $35 as well as through AliExpress and Amazon.
