I just love technology.

The Plinth is not just any stand for your tablet device, It is a must have if you like to travel light and get your typing and browsing done easily and with no fuss.

The video above shows just how compact it really is, and how easily it can be opened and closed again down to the size of an iPhone 4.

It has a clean and simple design yet on closer inspection you will see that it is a pretty intricate collection of small carefully designed parts put together to create what is probably one of the most innovative designs this year.

I love it, and what’s more I just love playing with it, it’s just so satisfying when you set up and start typing from you’re iPad or whatever your choice of device, within seconds.

I funded it back in the Kickstarter stage and after it was very quickly funded and a few months later it arrived, I truly haven’t looked back, even though my iPad has a cover with a built in stand I still prefer this for speed and adjustability. Try it out, you should be quite surprised.

In the 14 months since Touch ID launched, it has become a standout feature of the iPhone and iPad line of devices. It makes paying for apps easier than ever, it’s a shift toward enhanced mobile security and it was the key to making Apple Pay a reality… but it still has its limitations.

Even though Apple released two new iPad models this year, including the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, only the 9.7-inch version received a significant upgrade, with the mini model only getting a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and an extra color option. A report from Chinese publication Economic Daily News suggests that starting next year, Apple will discontinue the iPad mini line and replace it with the bigger 12.2-inch iPad Pro model.

According to Edward Snowden, people who care about their privacy should stay away from popular consumer Internet services like Dropbox, Facebook, and Google.

Snowden conducted a remote interview today as part of the New Yorker Festival, where he was asked a couple of variants on the question of what we can do to protect our privacy.

His first answer called for a reform of government policies. Some people take the position that they “don’t have anything to hide,” but he argued that when you say that, “You’re inverting the model of responsibility for how rights work”:

When you say, ‘I have nothing to hide,’ you’re saying, ‘I don’t care about this right.’ You’re saying, ‘I don’t have this right, because I’ve got to the point where I have to justify it.’ The way rights work is, the government has to justify its intrusion into your rights.
