Mozilla and ExpressVPN team up to boost Firefox privacy

Mozilla has revealed that more Firefox users will be able to benefit from increased privacy and security online thanks to a new partnership with ExpressVPN.

The browser firm has launched a new partnership with ExpressVPN to provide the latter’s VPN services to Firefox Lite customers for the first time.

Customers using the newly-rebranded Firefox Lite browser will now be offered a free seven-day trial of ExpressVPN to try out the service, marking the first such partnership of its kind.

“ExpressVPN is delighted to be partnering with Mozilla, as we share their dedication to advancing the open web and online privacy and security,” said Harold Li, vice president, ExpressVPN. “Through our partnership, we’ll be able to help Firefox Lite users secure their connections and ensure their data is not exposed to prying eyes or malicious actors.”

Formerly known as Firefox Rocket, Firefox Lite is a low-power and bandwidth version of Mozilla’s popular browser, allowing users to use less mobile data and allow speedy browsing even on poor connection networks.

The offer will initially be available across four countries — India, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines—which have over 729 million internet users combined. ExpressVPN says that users in these countries often turn to public Wi-Fi networks in frustration at poor connections, potentially putting themselves at risk of attack.

“Through our partnership with Mozilla, we hope to be able to educate users about these risks and equip them with tools to protect themselves,” ExpressVPN said in a blog post announcing the news.

“We are proud to provide a more secure browsing experience together with ExpressVPN,” said Charles P.C. Chen, head of business development, Mozilla Asia. “We see VPNs as a critical tool for internet security and privacy. ExpressVPN stood out for its pioneering work in leak proofing. We are happy to have established such a strong collaboration to bring a whole new level of secure mobile Web experience for our users.”

It’s crucial you buy a PS4 camera along with your VR headset, otherwise, it will not work. Don’t pay more than the standard £40/$60 for the camera though.  Sony released an updated, rounder (see image above) model with a built-in TV-mount and there are deals included in the chart below, usually priced around £40-£45, which isn’t bad considering the new clip. The older PS4 camera is also compatible with PlayStation VR. If there’s nothing tempting below, maybe try for a new/preowned unit via eBay?

PlayStation Move controller deals

The PlayStation Move motion controllers are very much an optional purchase as not every game supports them. Many that do, also have options to use the standard DualShock 4 PS4 controller instead.

Move wands aren’t as readily available as the cameras at the moment, but there are deals to be found if you shop around -or let us do it via that magical box below. some of the more expensive results are actually for twin packs. We’d advise a little caution if you’re considering preowned units, as the lack of use in recent years may have dulled the charge capacity of the battery compared to new controllers. If you want to try your luck (and probably save a fair amount), here are some handy links for eBay.

Spotify starts testing an official Apple Watch app

An official Spotify app would probably be high on the wishlists of a lot of Apple Watch owners, and it looks as though we’re setting the first steps towards that. A early, limited test is now underway, according to users with access to the Spotify beta iOS app.

As per a Reddit thread, at the moment the app doesn’t actually do much except control playback on your iPhone. It might be that syncing playlists to the watch – surely one of the key features of any wearable app – is going to be rolled out further down the line, possibly after the app gets its official launch.

So far neither Spotify nor Apple have said anything publicly about the app or when we can expect to see it appear for the rest of us. Of course Apple would much rather you stuck with Apple Music, which might put a few bumps in the road.

Taking its time

We’ve heard hints in the past that a Spotify app for the Apple Watch would eventually see the light of day, though rumors have been swirling for a long, long time now. An announcement was tipped for WWDC 2018 in June but never materialized.

When pushed for comment by The Verge, Spotify refused to elaborate on its plans for an Apple Watch app, only noting that it tests out new features and functionality all the time. Considering you can use Spotify just about everywhere else – including Wear OS – it makes sense that the set would be completed with the Apple Watch.

If you’re not a part of the Spotify beta on iOS, you’ll have to sit tight and wait for the time being. Once the app makes it to the full version of Spotify, we’ll be sure to let you know – just don’t expect too much to begin with.
