The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the hottest smartphone right now. Let’s face it. We just can’t wait to get our hands on it. With the latest hardware and features, it is the most desirable and powerful smartphone Samsung has created.
This smartphone boasts a lot of great hardware specs such as a super AMOLED HD 5-inch screen, ample storage space thanks to an expandable memory card slot, sensors, 13 Mega Pixels with LED flash primary camera to capture high quality pictures, and 2 Mega Pixels secondary camera. Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with many entertaining features as well.

Samsung actually took a step (or more) forward than the rest from the conceptualization, creation and marketing.
Your home is your castle, whether you rent it or own it. For some folks, just having a valid renter’s insurance policy is all they feel they need to protect themselves from a home invasion. Did you know that not every policy will actually fully recompense you if you have items that are stolen? Not only will you have to likely pay a deductible, but you’ll only get a market price compensation for your items. That means many items won’t be of full value. Protecting your home from being burgled is incredibly important so you don’t have to worry about theft, so here are the Top 10 tips to help you stop a burglar now.
1. Have Good Exterior Lighting
A thief loves to operate in the darkness of night. Darkness gives a burglar the cover they need not only to approach your home, but to get away cleanly after robbing it. One of the easiest ways to eliminate a home invasion is to improve the exterior lighting around your entry ways. Whether you use solar lights, install motion detector activated lights, or just utilize a strong porch light, it’s more difficult for a thief to operate in the light than in the dark.
In the modern information sharing age, it is easier than ever to hack into someone’s computer or personal account and steal their identity.

Because of that fact, identity theft protection is even more important than ever. Though there are limits on your personal liability when it comes to your credit cards, a hacker can drain your checking account in seconds if they’ve got your information. Here are the top 10 most famous hackers of all time:
1. Kevin Mitnick
It is almost a badge of pride to be wanted by the FBI as a hacker, and Kevin Mitnick wore that badge proudly. Jailed twice for his hacking attempts, Mitnick caused over $15 million worth of damage with an early internet worm that crashed about 10% of operating sites at the time. Though Mitnick doesn’t consider himself a hacker – a “persuader” is how he refers to himself, he was able to convince plenty of people to share with him their relevant information, such as their Social Security number, in a number of different ways. He’s appeared on TV, had several books written about his life, and there’s even a movie called Takedown about him.
