Reliance Jio Republic Day Offer: Per day data limit hiked by 500 MB on popular plans

Jio revised its plans earlier this month to offer more data with its popular 1GB data per day recharge packs, and launched new plans with 1.5GB daily data allocation as part of the Happy New Year 2018 offer. However, Jio plans to rejig its plans once again as part of a Republic Day 2018 Offer that it will announce in the next couple of days, Gadgets 360 has learned. Under the new offer, Jio users will get up to 50 percent more data on plans priced Rs. 149 or above. The changes will come into effect at 12am on January 26, 2018. The company’s 1GB data per day plans are priced at Rs. 149, Rs. 349, Rs. 399 and Rs. 449, with validities of 28 days, 70 days, 84 days and 91 days, respectively.

11 things you can do to protect against ransomware, including Cryptolocker

1. Back up your data
The single biggest thing that will defeat ransomware is having a regularly updated backup. If you are attacked with ransomware you may lose that document you started earlier this morning, but if you can restore your system to an earlier snapshot or clean up your machine and restore your other lost documents from backup, you can rest easy. Remember that Cryptolocker will also encrypt files on drives that are mapped. This includes any external drives such as a USB thumb drive, as well as any network or cloud file stores that you have assigned a drive letter. So, what you need is a regular backup regimen, to an external drive or backup service, one that is not assigned a drive letter or is disconnected when it is not doing backup. The next three tips are meant to deal with how Cryptolocker has been behaving – this may not be the case forever, but these tips can help increase your overall security in small ways that help prevent against a number of different common mal…

Reliance Jio 4G VoLTE technology: Here’s how voice-calls will work

Reliance Jio 4G is now open for all: From VoLTE to LTE to 4G we explain what you’re getting into with Jio service.

With Reliance Jio shaking up the market with the announcement of their 4G service, there seems to be a growing confusion among buyers regarding the technology the network will deploy. We have a small guide to help you work through the various terms such as VoLTE, LTE, 4G and the likes so that you know exactly what you’re getting into with the Reliance Jio service.

What is VoLTE?

VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE and is a new protocol for transmitting voice data over the LTE network. While 2G and 3G networks are circuit-switch based, 4G or LTE networks utilise Packet Switching. When a call is made over a 2G or a 3G network, a certain amount of network bandwidth is assigned to that call as a pipeline, which does not terminate till the call ends. On a VoLTE network, voice calls are broken up into packets of information, sent over the full data pipeline and then reconstructed at t…

Why You Should Buy a Refurbished Laptop OR Desktop (New isn't always better)

"Refurbished" sounds like a dirty wordto a lot of technophiles, but given the savings and hidden advantages, it's time to change your thinking.
Refurbished vs. usedThere's a difference between refurbished and used. Used means a product has been used for a significant amount of time by the previous owner. If they took care of it, you'll get a significant discount on a product in reasonable condition, but they're sold as-is, meaning, if the hard drive fails after a couple of months, you either have to fix it or write it off. Even if they're "fixed up," they're still used. A refurbished unit is one that was returned to the manufacturer or seller for some reason. They can no longer sell the unit as new, so they fix whatever was wrong (which isn't always a defect) and sell it as refurbished. There are several reasons a product could be sold as refurbished.
