Also, you can bridle the features of PayPal in order to change a simple site into a straightforward online shop or even utilize it to acknowledge card payments when you’re out testing a cell phone application.

There are only two sorts of accounts that can be created in PayPal: personal and business. One person can only have two accounts.

PayPal costs
If you are about to open an account, keep in mind that there are no PayPal fees for signing up. For all account types, it is also free of charge to send money as well as receiving funds from other accounts. But the incoming funds to your business account involve a fee.

Facebook Says It Can’t Guarantee Social Media Is Good for Democracy

Facebook warned on Monday that it could offer no assurance that social media was on balance good for democracy, but the company said it was trying what it could to stop alleged meddling in elections by Russia or anyone else.

The sharing of false or misleading headlines on social media has become a global issue, after accusations that Russia tried to influence votes in the United States, Britain and France. Moscow denies the allegations.

Facebook, the largest social network with more than 2 billion users, addressed social media’s role in democracy in blog posts from a Harvard University professor, Cass Sunstein, and from an employee working on the subject.

“I wish I could guarantee that the positives are destined to outweigh the negatives, but I can’t,” Samidh Chakrabarti, a Facebook product manager, wrote in his post.

Facebook, he added, has a “moral duty to understand how these technologies are being used and what can be done to make communities like Facebook as representative, civil and trustworthy as possible.”

Contrite Facebook executives were already fanning out across Europe this week to address the company’s slow response to abuses on its platform, such as hate speech and foreign influence campaigns.

US lawmakers have held hearings on the role of social media in elections, and this month Facebook widened an investigation into the run-up to Britain’s 2016 referendum on EU membership.

Chakrabarti expressed Facebook’s regrets about the 2016 US elections, when according to the company Russian agents created 80,000 posts that reached around 126 million people over two years.

The company should have done better, he wrote, and he said Facebook was making up for lost time by disabling suspect accounts, making election ads visible beyond the targeted audience and requiring those running election ads to confirm their identities.

Twitter and Alphabet’s Google and YouTube have announced similar attempts at self-regulation.

Chakrabarti said Facebook had helped democracy in ways, such as getting more Americans to register to vote.

Sunstein, a law professor and Facebook consultant who also worked in the administration of former US President Barack Obama, said in a blog post that social media was a work in progress and that companies would need to experiment with changes to improve.

Another test of social media’s role in elections lies ahead in March, when Italy votes in a national election already marked by claims of fake news spreading on Facebook.

According to reports by CIO kenya, on Friday 19th, January 2018 hackers have breached the National Bank of Kenya systems and managed to steal Ksh 29 million (approx. 1.025 billion UGX).

In a statement, the Bank confirmed the incident stating that “indeed there was an attempt fraud in normal course of business on 17th January” but the banks monitoring and security resources frustrated the attempt. The amount of attempted fraud is about Ksh 29 million and we are confident we will recover most of that money.

The bank also confirmed that security are in pursuit of the fraudsters and investigations are ongoing.

Most noteworthy, the bank confirmed that customer accounts had not been affected.

Earlier rumors claimed that the bank has lost over Ksh 340 million, claims which the bank has since refuted.

iGaming Forecast: What Can We Expect From Online Casinos in 2018?

As January draws to a close, iGaming pundits all over the web are beginning to place their bets on what 2018 has in store for the tech world and online casinos. Alas, not all of these predictions coincide, but there are a few areas where most tend to agree. Today, we thought we’d take a look at the three iGaming predictions that tech experts are all agreeing on.

1. More Games, More Choices

As the online casino industry and community have continued to grow over the last few years, we have received more games than we can shake a pair of dice at. Fortunately, this doesn’t seem as though it is going to change anytime soon as experienced and new players alike are constantly demanding new games. Whether you’re a table game fan, a slots supporter or a dedicated bingo player, there’s a great chance iGaming software developers are already working hard on your new favorite game, full of improved graphics, innovative features and extraordinary, diverse gameplay.

In fact, some tech experts are even expecting entirely new genres that expand on the games that have been released over the last ten years. For example, as young audiences tend to support skill-based games over titles that rely entirely on luck, you can expect to find many more games that require talent over chance at online casino platforms throughout 2018.

2. Bigger, Better Bonuses

Ever since online casinos launched in the late 1990s, they have been competing for customers using bonuses and promotions. This is the main reason why there are so many to choose from today, with most iGaming platforms offering no deposit bonuses, match bonuses and free spins at the very least. As more online casinos continue to pop up all over the internet, chances are we can expect bigger, better bonuses to appear as well.

Already there are a few forward-thinking operators ensuring they get ahead in 2018 market. For instance, promotions site bonus.ca are currently hosting a promotion from the king of mobile casino games, Leo Vegas – where players can receive a $1000 bonus and hundreds of free spins. We’re willing to predict that no deposit bonuses will continue to gain popularity throughout 2018, thus allowing possible customers to try out a site without having to spend any of their hard-earned cash. As always though, we highly recommend you check the wagering requirements of any site before making any financial commitment.

3. More Live Dealer Experiences

For many years, online casinos focused on providing quick, easily accessed titles that allowed players to experience games from the comfort of their own homes. Now, these games have evolved and appear to focus on delivering rich, real-life casino experiences similar to those you can expect from traditional brick-and-mortar casinos.

One of the main ways that casinos have done this is by providing live dealer games, which grew in popularity at an incredible rate throughout 2017. In these games, real, trained croupiers are video streamed to players in real time, creating an authentic experience that typical online slots and table games can’t recreate. As the technology that enables iGaming operators to provide these games evolves, we can expect to see even more engaging experiences that may lead to live dealer games ruling the online casino industry.

These three forecasts are merely speculations, but we are more than confident in them and the online casino industry’s ability to fulfill them. Do you have any predictions that we haven’t covered? Let us know in the comments below.

Huawei P8 Lite Review: Stylish, Elegant & Untypical Mid-Ranger

The Huawei P8 Lite (2017), was launched in Janurary last year, and its the newer version of the Huawei P8 Lite that was launched in 2015.
The Huawei P8 Lite (2017), was launched in Janurary last year, and its the newer version of the Huawei P8 Lite that was launched in 2015.

The Huawei GR3 was announced last year in January, and comes with confusing names. It is called the P9 Lite (2017), P8 Lite (2017), Honor 8 Lite, or the Nova Lite. However, most reports have gone with P8 Lite (2017); a new version of the Huawei P8 Lite launched in 2015.

The P8 Lite (2017), on paper, is a slightly better version of the P9 Lite that launched in 2016. It comes with a 5.20-inch display with a resolution of 1080pixels by 1920pixels powered by octa-core Kirin 655 processor. In addition, supported with 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage that’s expandable upto 128GB via a microSD card, and runs Android 7.0.

It powered and backed by a non-removable 3000mAh battery.

As we managed to have the black and blue flagships, and after a month of use, we’ve got our review.

Design
The P8 Lite is a sleek, slim, and portable phone sporting a front/back glass, aluminum frame that offers a good grip and premium feel. It comes in three color variants; white, blue, gold, and black. The fingerprint sensor is seen at back just below the rear camera setting a feature that is pretty accurate and fast.

"<yoastmark

The rear camera as mentioned is at the back with a horizontal setup while at its sides its the simcard tray combined with a microSD card slot (at the left), volume setup, and the power buttons appearing on the right. At the top left has the 3.5mm earphone jack port, and the USB Type-C charging and data transfer port, and two grilled speakers at the bottom. Finally the front camera appear above the display screen next to the phone call speaker.

Display
Comes with a 5.2-inch full HD display which offers 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~424 ppi density) – of the real estate to flaunt a full HD JDI display. The IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors panel produces decent brightness and colors come out vivid. The video experience on the phone was good, the colors are bright and vivid and the detailing is very good. Overall the display qualifies as decent and does a good job in sunlight as well.

Performance
The smartphone runs Android 7.0 (Nougat) mobile operating system which is powered by a Octa-core (4×2.1 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. For graphics, the handset packed in a Mali-T830MP2 GPU. Therefore, the performance was smooth, I was able to play a few games on it including; FIFA17, Temple Run 2, Sniper 3D Gun Shooter, and it was able to show the highlights, the blacks and colors were all displayed perfectly – and were able to run smooth without holding back or freezing, the same thing went with browsing.

Camera
This always my second biggest emphasis when it comes to reviewing smartphones since the camera is one of the main reasons people buy smartphones. The rear cameras is a 12MP and adds an autofocus and a LED flash as well. The photos taken on the device are satisfactory – detailing is a problem as the photos appear over saturated.

The front camera also had better pictures. Features like the HDR mode, Light Painting, Pro Photo, and Pro Video came in handy.

Battery
The handset has a Non-removable Li-Ion 3000mAh battery which can keep the device running for a long time considering the holder is a moderate or minimal user. The device can manage to run the whole day on a single charge (again considering that the holder is minimal user). I managed to watch and stream video, playing music, over taking pictures, social networking, as well as playing games, and the battery was drained so fast, had to charge twice in a single day.

What we liked about the Huawei P8 Lite
  1. The display was incredible, the colors were bright and vivid and the detailing was on the other hand very good and appealing.
  2. The portability of the phone, was a 5-star.
What we didn’t like about the Huawei P8 Lite
  1. The simcard tray is shared with the microSD card slot which is expandable up to 256GB. Since the phone is dual setup sim, the second sim and the microSD card share the share slot. Thus, the holder will consider either to have the second sim or expand his/her storage space with a microSD card.
  2. Doesn’t support fast charge capability.

Price
The Huawei P8 Lite is priced at 980,000 UGX.

The Government of Uganda through the European Union and Council of Europe has obtained support to assist Uganda harmonize legislation on Cybercrime and electronic evidence towards Ratification of the Budapest Convention on Cyber Crime.

The convention is an international treaty that seeks to address Internet and Computer Crime by harmonizing national laws on cybercrime. Furthermore, improving national capabilities for investigating such crimes, and increasing cooperation on investigations.

The first series of the support included an initial consultative meeting with the task team on the convention and an analysis of the existing legal and environmental framework.

The task team includes representation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Uganda Police Force, Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Uganda Law Reform Commission, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and NITA-U.

The Council of Europe team was led by Matteo Lucchetti who commended the work done by the task team in the preparations for the Ratification. He shared, ‘the convention will serve as a guideline for Uganda as you embark on improving your national legislation and provides a framework for international cooperation between countries’ law enforcement agencies, so critical to cybercrime investigation and prosecution.’

Hon. Vincent Bagiire, the Permanent Secretary of Ministry of ICT & National Guidance, asked the task team to utilize the opportunity to harmonize the legislature on Cybercrime with international best practice in particular the convention.

“Benchmarking against the convention will go a long way in ensuring that as we digitize the nation, we have robust and secure legislation that will safeguard Ugandan citizens’ digital transactions,” he said.

Once the ratification process is concluded, Ugandan law enforcement agencies will be ably equipped to carry out investigations of any crime facilitated by the use of technology.

The Task Team will now begin the consultation process with key stakeholders to inform the ratification process.

The Nascent Casino Industry in Africa

0

Gambling of one form or another has existed for millennia, but it’s by no means equally well-established all over the globe. The betting and casino industry in Africa at the moment is a very interesting field as both businesses and players engage with a form of activity less familiar than it is in the West.

One of the forces currently pushing the industry along and urging legislators and regulators to react is the online side of this world. The internet has changed everything over the last few decades, from shopping to eating out, and betting and gambling are certainly no exceptions to this trend.

As far as the bookmakers and the casinos are concerned, the online formats of their services are a wonderful thing- a chance for them to expand their business activity and a chance for players to enjoy what’s on offer exactly where and when they like, totally at their convenience. With smartphones that are now so powerful and user-friendly, everyone has the opportunity to have a virtual casino in their pocket. Not only are there more online casinos and bookmakers starting up all the time, but there are also certain innovative, specialist businesses that focus on guiding the discerning player through the thriving marketplace to the best games and facilities available. A site like this one is a prime example, helping visitors to sort the wheat from the chaff, so to speak.

Now as far as the respective governments of this nascent African market are concerned, things look slightly different. Of course, any thriving industry will be a welcome, positive influence on a country’s economy, but there are moral concerns here too. Primarily, many countries are concerned about the addictive qualities of betting and gambling that are made safe in Europe and America through being understood and supported. That same intelligent handling needs to happen in Africa too and governments want to ensure that everything is developing in the right way.

The good thing is that although some countries have their reservations, others are taking an energetic approach and welcoming the online betting and casino industry. The potential for development is immense, and one only needs to look at the top gambling venues across the world to see this. Las Vegas is perhaps the best known, with its glitzy origins in 1950s America, and of course, Monaco and Macau also spring to mind. Most relevant here though is perhaps Singapore with its relatively recent developments in IR casino complexes.

IR stands simply for Integrated Resort and refers to the integration of casinos, hotels and restaurants. What this model allows is for holidaymakers and gamblers to be absolutely taken care of. Accommodation, catering and of course, the gaming all occur under one roof, or rather under several extremely impressive roofs as one of the great advantages of this way of doing things is the immense scale on which everything can be built, resulting in incredible and luxurious venues such as Marina Bay Sands.

Best Strategy and MOBA Games for Mobile and Tablets

0

When the mobile strategy game Clash of Clans became a billion-dollar success story, there was no shortage of app developers trying to create titles with ambitiously similar gameplay. The same rang true when League of Legends showcased how Multiplayer online battle arena games (MOBAs) can be insanely profitable without IAPs that unbalance the playing field. Mobile app stores are now full of strategy-building and MOBA games, and while very few have come remotely close to the financial successes of Clash of Clans or League of Legends, there’s a few worthy alternatives out there.

Let’s begin by examining what makes each genre so particularly successful, because comparing their revenue models is like comparing apples and oranges. On one hand, Clash of Clans is a freemium-based game that speeds up your game progress for buying IAPs, but this doesn’t necessarily make it pay-to-win. In pay-to-win titles, you generally pay for upgrades that give you a distinct advantage over other players. In Clash of Clans, you can pay to speed up the construction of your empire, but you’re still matched against players of a similar level in PvP – thus, spending money won’t enable you to dominate anyone in PvP unfairly, but rather allows you to enjoy the game more quickly.

MOBAs like League of Legends generally operate in a similar freemium-based model, relying on revenue from IAPs. But the IAPs in MOBAs are rarely pay-to-win, as almost all IAPs in most MOBA titles are 1: New characters, and 2: Skins for characters. And because MOBAs are generally quite focused on balanced, skill-based gameplay, there are many cases where paid-for characters have no distinct advantage over cheaper or even free characters.

With all that said, this list of strategy and MOBA games for mobile / tablets has been carefully assembled, with particular attention being paid to gameplay and whether or not IAPs unbalance the game for free players.

Boom Beach

For a fun and engaging Clash of Clans alternative, you may need to look no further than Boom Beach, which is from the same developers! You could essentially consider Boom Beach to be Clash of Clans 2, as Supercell kept the same gameplay formula, but the game is set in a Pacific Theater type of world. Thus, you’ll build more modernized units than you would find in Clash of Clans, such as radar dishes and gunboats.

Some of the most noticeable gameplay changes in Boom Beach, as a spinoff / sequel to Clash of Clans, are the much shorter build times – but only 1 building can be upgraded at a time. The longest build times in Boom Beach (without IAP gems to speed things up) is around 2 days, compared to Clash of Clans which can have upgrade times up to 2 weeks, at the higher building levels. PvP matchmaking also feels a bit more balanced, and there’s no penalty for skipping fights.

Castle Clash

Castle Clash is one of the more popular base-building strategy games that draws a lot of inspiration from Clash of Clans, yet adds several unique mechanics to the genre. These mechanics that set it apart from other games in the genre include a hero progression / leveling system, hero arena, base-defense objectives, and the inclusion of magic-type units. You’ll also progress and earn gems (IAP currency) faster than in CoC.

Lordzio

 Lordz.io is a browser-based medieval war strategy game, a bit of a cross between Clash of Clans and Agar.io. You collect gold, build a base and train soldiers to go to battle against other players in real-time, on large server maps. You can also buy dragons to demolish other player’s armies. It’s a great example of how HTML5 and WebGL is becoming a fantastic platform for online competitive gaming, even on mobile devices, as all mobile tablets and phones can play browser-based games without downloading an additional app.

Star Wars Commander

Star Wars Commander is basically Clash of Clans with stormtroopers and lightsabers – you could, in fact, consider it a carbon-copy of CoC with a Star Wars skin. There is almost literally nothing in Star Wars Commander that sets it apart from Clash of Clans, but if you’re a fan of both, this may actually be up your alley. You have all the familiar gameplay elements of CoC, but with wookies and droids. What more could a Star Wars fan searching for a CoC alternative ask for?

Arena of Valor

If you’re looking for a League of Legends alternative for mobile devices, you’ll most likely be highly satisfied by Arena of Valor (Honor of Kings in China). It was designed by Tencent Games, a Chinese company that currently completely owns League of Legends, so AoV is basically LoL-mobile. There’s a huge roster of original champions, with a few DC-licensed characters like Batman, Superman, The Joker, The Flash, Spiderman, and a few others sprinkled into the game universe. The DC characters aren’t a central focus of the game by any means, they’re just a fan-service because of a licensing deal between Tencent and Time Warner. Still, it’s pretty novel to see Batman running around the jungle and ganking other characters. Overall, if you’ve played League of Legends, Arena of Valor will feel extremely familiar.

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is so similiar to League of Legends, that Riot Games (publishers of LoL) actually filed a lawsuit for multiple copyright infringements. Moonton, the company behind Mobile Legends, took the game down from app stores, made a few logo and game map tweaks, and re-uploaded it. It’s still a near exact copy of League of Legends for mobile devices, and a pretty darn good one at that. The large champion roster feels very balanced, and while a lot of the champions feel like straight up clones of League of Legends champions (Miya in ML is basically Ashe from LoL, right down to the skillset, for example), but there’s enough unique content that Moonton hasn’t faced any further copyright infringement claims.

VainGlory

VainGlory sets itself apart from other titles in the MOBA genre by only offering 10 characters, but focusing much more on the teamwork and coordination. It is probably one of the most skill-based MOBAs available with an emphasis on the early-game teamwork. For example, in most other MOBAs its not unheard of for a team losing badly to make a sudden comeback in the lategame – but in VainGlory, the early dominating team will win 99.9% of matches.
