There are hundreds of test automation tools currently on the market, providing users with the capability to thoroughly test software products or web based applications quickly and repeatedly, saving time and money. Below is a short summary of five automated testing tools currently available.
Our Privacy is their priority… A sentiment that became hard to believe following recent reports on the level to which Microsoft complied with the NSA in their spying operations. Compliance is a very different beast to complicity and collaboration however, and as much as the tech giants are lauded as the bringers of a new age of digital integration while simultaneously abhorred for their wealth, power and breaches of trust; there is no more powerful body in tech than the US Government.

It didn’t help that Microsoft was very late on the uptake leaving the door wide open for long-time nemesis, Apple and new-kid-on-the-block, Android.

The Raspberry Pi is a little computer around the size of a credit card that was designed to help children learn about programming while doing some of their own. Uptake has been swift by both children and the development community.
The recent revelations about the program known as Prism have shaken the digital world. The contradictory statements made by the US government, security agencies and the major tech giants have caused much confusion for the general public, as well as for those involved. The questions remain; how much are the tech companies not saying? Is the leaked information incorrect? And do the public mind?
