Organizing any large event is always a crazy experience, so Files.fm offers a new solution to improve at least one aspect of party-planning: shared photo storage.

Misinformation is one of the hot topics of the last decade. While the term ‘fake news’ has become a bit of a joke phrase and even a point of misinformation itself, it is a term appearing again and again in the modern discourse. From HIV-infected bananas to an all-out fake news war in the US presidential elections, the last decade was full of misleading information, clickbait titles and propaganda articles.

All of this, of course, is nothing new. Roman politician Mark Anthony killed himself in 30 BC because he believed a wrongful rumor that Egyptian queen Cleopatra has committed suicide…

Around 60 percent of people make New Year’s resolutions. Are you one of them? If yes, how long before you give up? If you hold on to your resolutions for more than two weeks, you are already ahead of most people — but only around 8 percent of you will actually achieve the goals they’ve set.

A survey of 2000 people (source: https://www.inc.com/peter-economy/10-top-new-years-resolutions-for-success-happiness-in-2019.html) shows the most common New Year’s resolutions in 2019, and we can expect 2020 to be similar:

1. Diet or eat healthier (71 percent)

2. Exercise more (65 percent)

3. Lose weight (54 percent)

4. Save more…

With the newest technological advancements consuming our daily lives, it is more important than ever to ensure balance between the efficiency these technologies provide and their impact on your physical and psychological wellbeing.

Today, technology is used to communicate across countries and to move outside traditional offices. It brings many obvious benefits, such as the ability to work from afar, to get the necessary tools with a few clicks, to ensure communication between team members. At the same time, it brings also something more sinister: the need, and sometimes expectation, to be constantly connected.

Digital technologies can be addictive. A…

It is important to ensure that technology is available to people of all ages, and Virtual Reality — VR — applications are a good example of the benefits modern inventions can have. Virtual reality refers to a simulated experience: using a VR headset which provides a view into a simulated world. People are able to walk around in it and interact with the objects in the world.

Usually, VR uses sight and hearing as the main senses — there is a 360° video playing on the headset and sounds can be heard in headphones. …

The latest research shows what most people suspected already: the use of Internet and modern technologies requires restraint, and digital wellbeing is more important today than ever before. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it turns out that constant access to a vast amount of information and never-ending stream of notifications together with the belief that everyone is always accessible via their smartphones is detrimental to our mental and physical health.

Excessive use of social media can create depression, anxiety and feelings of dependency, while constant stream of negative news generates vast amounts of stress. Even more, the use of mobile devices during the…

The Internet is not a new concept. It was born fifty years ago, and has had a revolutionary impact on our daily lives since the 1990’s. However, the discrepancy between Internet users on the basis of their age is still pronounced. According to Pew Research Center, almost 100% of Millennials (people aged 23 to 38) use the Internet, but only 62% of the Silent Generation (74 to 91 years old) have ever been online.

The good news is that the number of seniors using the Internet is constantly growing, the same as the number of senior citizens owning a smartphone…

October has arrived. For lots of people, it is the season of pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween trick-or-treating. For others, October is the Cybersecurity Awareness Month, warning us of the threats lurking on Internet. The month is devoted to promoting safer Internet use and changing bad online habits.

Why is it important? Your data has value. The information you put out online has a real and tangible price to all involved parties, from the social network you use to your county of residence. …

Have you ever used Google Timeline? If you have a smartphone with Google account, you probably have — check here (https://www.google.com/maps/timeline). This Google function allows you to see every place you’ve visited. When I show it to people, their reactions usually fit into two possible categories: ‘oh, it’s so neat, you can see every country you’ve visited’ or ‘how can I turn it off, it’s super creepy’.

Internet users know their data is saved by almost every website they visit, whether in the form of cookies, collection of personal information or using phone settings. The debate today is no longer…
