Technobyte: Amazon Echo, Redmo3 and Freedome

Echo is a new category of device designed around your voice—it’s always on, hands-free, and fast—just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more from across the room and get answers instantly.

Echo uses far-field voice recognition with an array of seven microphones to clearly hear you around the room. Advanced beam-forming technology combines the signals from the individual microphones to suppress noise, reverberation, and even competing speech.

Echo’s advanced audio design includes dual downward-firing speakers that produce 360˚ omni-directional, room-filling audio.

Packed with Snapdragon 616, 3GB RAM and 13-megapixel rear camera, this ultimate smartphone thrills you with seamless multitasking and a smooth operating experience.

Freedome is a simple yet powerful online privacy and security app for all your desktop and mobile devices.

When you surf the Internet, data collection companies track your online activities and sell your data to advertisers. Freedome blocks these tracking attempts so you can browse anonymously and undisturbed.

Freedome scans for malware, tracking cookies and other online threats. You're protected from harmful sites, trackers and apps that want to forward your data without you knowing about it.

Choose where you want your IP address to be shown from over 15 available virtual locations. Changing your location is useful when you want to optimize your connection, add an extra layer of privacy, or access your favourite online services when you're away from home.

Freedome creates a secure, encrypted connection from you and your device to the F-Secure Cloud. It makes your connection invisible in the Wi-Fi network and your data unreadable. So even if someone tries to scan what's up, they can't tap into what's yours.
