Notorious scam group targets universities and non-profits with gift card scheme Schools and charities beware: if someone pretending to be your boss emails you to buy Apple iTunes or Google Play gift cards, it’s almost certainly a scam. For a number of years the British Red Cross has used software from OneLogin to manage users' access to its vital systems. ZDNet spoke to the head of service delivery at the British Red Cross, Phil Paul, to find out more. ZDNet: What is the role of OneLogin for the British Red Cross?Paul: We were brought in to provide the ability to create a platform to access our core systems and that had to be behind three factor authentications.

I can't think of a more fitting first phone review for 2019 than Huawei's Honor View 20. Announced in the waning days of December 2018 for China first, the Honor View 20 is a visually mesmerizing Android Pie phone whose midtier price belies all the features Huawei's stuffed inside and out: A 48-megapixel camera on the back alongside a 3D stereo lens. A 6.4-inch display with razor-thin bezels. A 25-megapixel camera on the front, with a hole-punch opening instead of a notch. A visually showstopping finish. A 4,000-mAh battery and 125GB or 256GB of on-board storage. And a headphone jack!I won't blame you for doing a double take because the Honor View 20 reads like a higher-end device on paper. For a 2,999-yuan starting price (which converts to about $445, £350 or AU$620), it has as much going on as a lot of premium phones you can buy today at double the price. I can almost see it taunting Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10: "I've got a ridiculously large 48-megapixel camera and 3D sensor, … [Read more...] about Huawei Honor View 20 review: The first standout phone of 2019

Once upon a time, instant messaging was king. Before social media apps and smartphones rose to prominence, these free-to-use services ruled. AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), Yahoo! Instant Messenger, ICQ, you name it—everyone had their drug of choice. There was just one problem with these revolutionary methods of communication: Using them meant you needed an internet connection. That was a problem since for many people “going online” often meant stationing oneself at a desktop computer, connecting via dial-up, and tying up the phone line. As such, chat sessions had to come to a swift halt when it was time to leave the house. Today, it’s hard to imagine a world in which you can’t dash of hundreds of text messages a day, but in the late nineties and early aughts, texting technology was still new; it was expensive and rudimentary. In this milieu, instant messaging gadgets seemed like the future—imagine if you could fire off messages as you did on your … [Read more...] about Remember the Delightful Messenger-Only Gadgets That Failed to Conquer the World?
