How to remote log out from Gmail, Facebook

If you headed home from office, without logging out of Facebook or Gmail, you can do so from anywhere using the 'remote log out' feature. 


In Facebook, click on the tiny gear sign on the top right of the page, go to 'account settings' and then to 'security' on the left pane. Under 'security settings', click on 'active sessions'. 

No one else might be using your account, but you would not have logged out of Facebook, leaving the session active. Anyone can gain access to your account in such circumstances. To remote log out, click on 'end activity'. 

In Gmail, at the bottom right side of the page, you will see details of your latest email access. If someone else is simultaneously using your account, you will see a notification there. 

Click on the 'Details' link below it. A new window opens, with a notification on whether the account is simultaneously open elsewhere. Like in the case of FB, you might not have logged out of the account, leaving it active. If so, you will see an option to 'log out of all sessions'. It also shows you the details of your previous 10 accesses to the account.

Kingston Launches HyperX Plug and Play RAM for Intel PCs

Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.

There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.

The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
