Re: Use the Raspberry Pi-Hole

This - totally.

I've had one on my network for a little while. It took some playing about, because my BT Broadband router doesn't allow you to set DNS servers (pi-hole becomes the one you use). I got around it by making the Pi-hole my DHCP server too, but in the latest version they've included the setup of that in the web interface, so even my slight reservations about recommending it are now moot.

On a Pi 2 Model B, it seems to take less than 5% of the CPU to handle a household of 8 devices, but the loading of logs isn't quick.

All smartwatches are insecure, reveals unsurprising research

Re: Really?

Not a dig H4arm0ny - no need to get so defensive. I know there are plenty of WP users, and not just in Europe - they're pretty popular in the sub-continent too. Of the people in my (European) office, we're evenly split between WP8.1 and Android, and I there are plenty of others scattered about the campus.

For the record, I'm one of the users (and looking to stay so with a phone upgrade imminent), although my Band is the only one in the Office.

On your other point, I do agree. Since the Band works on all three major platforms (does the Android app work in Sailfish?) it should have been tested on all three. However, since this is obviously a poor article regurgitating a poor press release announcing poor research, poorly done, I don't think it was a consideration.

Re: Really?

Looks like the Band probably wasn't tested - From the Research Findings in the document:

"HP reviewed 10 popular smartwatches along with their paired Android or iOS mobile device and application."

Now, I know the Band can easily pair with both Android and iOS, but surely in a security test, you'd pair it with its "native" OS as well. Wouldn't you HP?

No, try;
