Got the new #iPhone 6S or 6S Plus ? Here's a quick guide on the new 3D Touch feature and how to use it.

Peek and Pop

"While quick actions make it convenient to perform tasks from your home screen, Peek and Pop allow you to get more done on any screen.
Developers have a few different options for implementing Peek and Pop. One example is in the Messages app, where by light-pressing on a message thread your device will display a small preview of the conversation. Think of this as a way to peek into the thread, without actually opening it (and marking the message as read). You can swipe up when peeking into a conversation, revealing a list of actions such as custom text replies. You can also peek at emails in the Mail app.
The "peek" will remain active as long as your finger remains on the screen; lifting it off will close it. Also, you don't have to keep applying pressure on the screen once it's activated.
The "Pop" portion comes into play as you press harder on the screen when previewing a message or viewing content. A deep-press will fully open the content you are viewing, allowing you to interact with it.
You can also peek at URLs, flight numbers, dates on your calendar and a long list of other bits of information presented on your screen. If a portion of a message has text underlined, odds are iOS has identified information in that message you can preview using Peek and Pop."

Here's a guide to show and explain to you the different types of #4G their are!

Uses FDD
Has Cat 9 support for new handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus
Has just shown off a Cat 11 wireless device with a theoretical top speed of 600Mbps

It was in 2014 that Telstra finally flipped the switch on its new 4G offering, dubbing the network 4GX. The name refers to Telstra's slice of the 700MHz band, which offers better underground and in-building coverage, and the telco's existing 1,800MHz band."

All of this has resulted in a major security nightmare for the Cupertino tech giant."

"The iPhone 6s steals the show, but the iPad Pro is also worthy of attention

iPhone 6s
So what's new? Well, with the iPhone 6s Apple has unveiled a phone that's almost identical in design to the iPhone 6 but boasts a host of new features. Chief among these is the much-vaulted 3D Touch – the name Apple is giving to what has previously been known as Force Touch."

Make sure you create a strong #password ! As these people learnt the hard way about simple passwords!

"Last month, the hacking group known as “Impact Team” dumped almost 100 gigabytes of affair specialists Ashley Madison’s user data onto the internet. It was thought that Ashley Madison’s users could take some solace in the fact that at least their passwords were encrypted. Not that there was much solace to go round. After having your login, email, and credit card details, and geographic locations released on Tor, it probably couldn’t get much worse."

Here is some quick alternatives to shutting down your #Windows10 computer instead of the current 3-step process!

If you right-click the Start button, you'll see a lengthy pop-up shortcut menu -- with "Shut down or sign out" right near the bottom. Mouse over that option and then click "Shut down." This is still a slow, two-click method (with a mouse-over mixed in), but at least it's not three clicks.
