Automatically Sync SD Card Directories To DropBox With DropSpace [Android]

If you’re anything like me, the new year is a time for refreshing and changing things. Something I like to do for my phone is to check if there’s now a better way of doing things, so I don’t get stuck using old clunky tools when something better has cropped up. As a result, I’ve just removed a huge amount of apps and replaced them with things that work much better. One big aspect of this overhaul is the backup system, which can be quite streamlined thanks to some great apps.

How Secure Is Facebook, Really? A Roundup Of Breaches & Flaws

Facebook, a website which is less than a decade old, now has over a billion users. Those users share a lot of information about their lives.

Get To Know Your Graphics Accelerator In Excruciating Detail With GPU-Z [Windows]

The GPU, or graphics processing unit, is the part of your computer in charge of handling graphics. In other words, if games are choppy on your computer or it can’t handle very high quality settings, it’s likely that the GPU is too weak (rather than the CPU, the central processing unit).
