Zedge, for All Your Annoying Ringtones!
I really don't understand folks who use songs as their ringtones. Isn't it annoying or confusing when the song comes on the radio? If it's your favorite song, don't you get desensitized to it when you listen to the CD (or digital equivalent of CD)? Nevertheless, you probably hear dozens of ringtones every day. Those probably vary from "super annoying" to "what a cool ringtone". With Zedge, you can be the person annoying your fellow subway passengers—or making them jealous.

Zedge is a free app in the Google Play store, and the ringtones (and notification sounds and alarm sounds) are completely free as well. I currently use the "WHAAAT?!?!??!" sound from the minions on Despicable Me as a notification sound (which is clearly super cool and not annoying). My ringtone, which I hear much less often than in years past, is one I made myself from pasting together sound clips from Star Trek the Next Generation. Somehow, my homemade ringtone ended up on Zedge. I know it's mine, because I pasted together sounds that don't actually occur together on the show. I'm terribly proud of my ringtone, and if you'd like to hear it for yourself, search for "Incoming Subspace Signal", it should pop right up. If Star Trek isn't up your alley, there are thousands of other options from which to choose. With Zedge, installing them is simple and, of course, free.
Due to its incredible selection, seamless integration and amazing price tag, Zedge is this month's Editors' Choice winner. Check it out today at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.zedge.android.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
