Savenkeep Blog Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:12:29 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Enjoy Better Security with Microsoft Edge Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:12:29 +0000 Microsoft works harder than other operating systems, mainly because the popularity of their system attracts some nefarious online characters. They release updates after updates to keep their software secure, because without them Windows would be vulnerable to hacks.


Many users believe that the biggest vulnerability in the Microsoft Windows is the Internet Explorer, even though the developers at Microsoft have spent countless hours trying to make it more secure. Finally, they have come up with a perfect solution and gotten rid of the Internet Explorer altogether. Instead, they have introduced a new browser called Microsoft Edge.

More Secure

The biggest reason for the introduction of Edge was the lack security of the Internet Explorer. All the aspects of the explorer, which caused the security concerns, have been eliminated from the Edge. The easiest way into someone’s PC is via the browser, because it is a great target for inserting malware and Trojans.

One of the favorite attacks that hackers use to insert their own code into the browser is UAF (Use After Free), and Internet Explorer made it very simple for them to use this attack. The code they insert into the browser usually ends up crashing the applications, but sometime it also executes seamlessly, giving hackers access to sensitive information.

Microsoft Edge prevents insertion of such code and provides much better security to its users. The browser has been designed to look for these kinds of attacks specifically. It watches the memory blocks that may be freed during the browsing sessions and makes sure that no unwanted code makes its way into your system. If any harmful code does get into the browser, it will self-terminate as quickly as possible, so any possible damage to your system can be prevented.

This is just the tip of ice berg, when it comes to the security improvements in Microsoft Edge. Users will be able to experience the better security of this new browser soon enough – it is due to be launched at the end of July.

Best Tourist Places That Will Soon Disappear! Tue, 21 Jul 2015 09:08:39 +0000 If you are thinking about you next big vacation, you might want to think about the following ten best tourist places. Because for one reason or another, these pristine vacation spots will soon be gone, so visit them while you still have the chance.



The U.S. is finally taking steps to remove their sanctions and embargoes off Cuba, which will be great for the country, but as far as Cuba the vacation spot goes, it will never be the same.

Choquequirao, Peru

Most people travel to Peru for Machu Picchu, which has been transformed into a modern day destination. The more picturesque Choquequirao remains untouched, but soon new constructions will change this isolated spot as well.

Glacier National Park, Canada

Because of changing global temperatures, Canada’s Glacier National Park is literally melting away. Scientists are saying that in the next couple of decades, it may completely disappear.

Dolpo, Nepal

There are very few untouched vacations destinations left in the world; Dolpo, Nepal is one of these destinations. If you visit Dolpo now, you will probably be the only westerners there; this won’t be the case in the near future.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Time hasn’t been kind to Mount Kilimanjaro; it has lost more than 80% of its ice cover. It is predicted that the ice will be completely gone in the next 25 years.

Coral Triangle

The rising temperatures aren’t just affecting the ice; they are also wreaking havoc on the coral life, especially in the coral triangle region.


As mentioned above, the temperature change is having an adverse effect on the regions that have beautiful ice caps and glaciers, and Greenland in one of them.


Remember the lovable Lemurs from the Disney’s Madagascar films? They aren’t so happy in reality – their population is dwindling, because of forest fires, human invasion and droughts.


The sea levels are rising because of the melting ice caps; this will cause many islands to disappear in the not so distant future – one such island nation is Kiribati.

Serengeti, Tanzania

Human development is already disturbing the serene ecosystem of Serengeti. Soon the development will displace a huge number of mammals and transform this wilderness into a metropolis.

Former Reddit CEO holds the reins again Tue, 14 Jul 2015 06:06:35 +0000 Ellen Pao seemed to have nowhere to go when the petition got signatures of almost 200,000 people asking her to resign from her post. The firing of communications director certainly backfired to the no more CEO. This was not all, since the decision was taken for firing the director namely Victoria Taylor major part of the site itself was shut down as the protest grew over the decision by Ms. Pao. Reddit CEO had the responsibility to outreach to the new subscribers for this year. It was seemingly getting difficult to achieve the targets set by the senior management. Therefore, as the traditional office politics goes, someone had to take the blame.


The good news however is that, the new Reddit CEO is actually the co-founder himself. Steve Huffman is without any doubt the only person that can understand and direct the Reddit site with all its traditions staying intact. Ms. Pao has claimed that it was getting difficult to manage growth of the site with having the core principle working behind the scenes. It is now known that she wanted to bring some unwanted changes that had clearly made her negative image. The past eight months there were many ups and downs but now it’s confirmed that workers behind Reddit needs the traditional management.

The new Reddit CEO has already taken the reigns and the fast paced catching up is under process. Social media is the industry that has to bear constant pressure on daily, hourly and minutely basis. It is for sure that the current changes have already slowed down the mechanism and the process of the company. So it gets really important that Mr. Huffman does not waste any time and leads the company back to the heights it once was. It is time to reevaluate the success factors and the reasons for the company’s restricted coordination to achieve ultimate success.    Title:

Greece Crisis: Voters Rejected the European Bailout Terms Tue, 07 Jul 2015 02:31:41 +0000 Greece was the first of four sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone that was brought due to a decade long structural deficits and debt to GDP level. Just recently, European Commission, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank have proposed a rescue package to put an end to Greece crisis. The package proposed by the Europe proposed tax hike and pension reforms that are sternly rejected by Greeks in referendum. This also put the Greece’s membership of Eurozone in danger.


Greeks celebrated their win by waiving flags and lighting firecrackers as they marched towards the city’s central square. As a matter of fact, 61 percent of Greeks has rejected the deal saying it would force tight measures on an economy that is already ravaged.

Supporting the Greeks’ vote to reject the deal, Alexis Tsipras, the Prime Minister of Greece, praised his people for making a brave choice and said that the mandate given by his people is not a mandate that would suggest a collapse with Europe, but a mandate that empowers the negotiating position to come up with a working solution.

This ‘No’ is not just a simple response rather, a reaction that is built up over a period of five years accepting repeating rounds of austerity from the creditors which left one out of every five Greeks unemployed and squeezed the economy by a quarter.

Without more funding to manage the current status of economy, Greece’s banks may run out of cash in a matter of few coming days. As Germany’s economy minister said that the Prime Minister and the government of Greece are directing the Greeks on a path of abandonment and desperateness, and claimed the negotiations with the Greeks as ‘barely conceivable’.

In 2012, Greece experienced the largest sovereign debt default in history. The country is now facing one of the world’s highest levels of public debt and has become the first country from the developed world that has failed to repay a loan of €1.6 billion to IMF.

Eleni Deligainni, a 43 year old Greek, said that she has been unemployed for four years and seen enough hopelessness and deprivation during this time.

Taylor Swift Takes On Apple Music Tue, 23 Jun 2015 07:40:36 +0000 Apple has recently announced that it will enter the music streaming business. For this purpose, the company created the Apple Music app that will deliver an “unparalleled” music experience to users. The Apple Music app is currently available on iTunes and the Apple faithful can enjoy the free trial period of the service. It is this trial period that has attracted the ire of one of Music industry’s biggest superstars – Taylor Swift.



Apple Music’s Trial Period

Although Taylor Swift was her polite self when she expressed her annoyance with Apple Music, the comments she made did garner a lot of unwanted attention for the newly launched music service. Ms. Swift has previously made her feelings known about various other online music streaming services and her comments have had an impact on the performance of the said services. Such is the influence of music industry’s resident princess.

So, why exactly did Taylor Swift decide to bring Apple Music into her crosshairs? The reason is that Apple decided to provide their users a free trial period for the new music app, and they also decided not to pay the artists, producers or songwriters, whose music is going to be features on the app. This riled up Swift and she made very public comments about the fact that a company, such as Apple, should not force artists to work for nothing, for 3 whole months.

If anyone else had said it, then the comments would not have received the type of attention that they did. But since it was Taylor Swift, Apple Music received some negative press that it doesn’t need, just when the service is about to be launched on a larger scale.

The ball is currently in Apple’s court, because unlike other people, Taylor Swift cannot be ignored for very long. It remains to be seen just how exactly the bigwigs at Apple handle this situation. Though it is safe to conclude that they will take an action soon enough.

5 Technology Myths Take a Turn Again! Tue, 09 Jun 2015 04:13:48 +0000 Future and modernization often confuse tech savvy people around the world. Gadget manufacturers have been able to develop multiple technologically advanced components of devices which has enabled them to provide way better utility then before. These advancements have also been able to force the technology myths to take a turn again.

1.      Over charging or no charging

The past mobile gadgets were believed to be negatively affected by overcharging. People often would time the battery charging intervals that created enough hectic routines. Almost all the new technology has been able to reserve this mechanism automatically now; shutting down when the charging reaches maximum level.

2.      Nonstandard chargers

There are different qualities of the third party chargers; the mediocre qualities that are by registered manufacturers can provide adequate performance without having any potential threat to you or your device’s health. However, the lower the quality greater the chances of damaged batteries and exploding phones. Still these low quality products are difficult to find and can be easily identified because of ridiculously low prices.

3.      Temperature effects

It is true that temperature affects the performance of the battery and its life as well. Still, the myth of not letting your gadget stay in the car or under direct sunlight is untrue. The temperature range is already mentioned on the device’s care instructions. Normally the temperatures are on very high levels which are rare in normal conditions. So no worries if you left your cell phone in the car, it will survive.

4.  Battery drain cycle

The technology myth of draining the battery completely, then recharging it has no effect on the daily usage. The real reason for this cycle was to freshen up the ions in the battery for better performance and should be done once or twice in the matter of six months. Huge difference it is, the modern technology however has no need for this cycle as mentioned by the manufacturers.

5. Shutting down the devices at night

Almost all the modern technology has energy saving features; it is true that today, when you keep your device idle, it won’t use more energy than required for the standby mode. It just goes down to your personal choice and having no effect on the device itself.
