Right now you can pick up a three-year subscription to the popular NordVPN for just $99, a savings of over $330.

Security is important.

Have you ever stopped to think about how much of your day you spend connecting to networks that aren't your own? Whether you're working at a Starbucks, trying to finish something up at the airport before your flight, or sitting in the public library, odds are you're connected to a network that isn't the most secure without even thinking about it. Daily we do things like accessing our bank account, pay bills, send personal emails, and much more, all while not knowing if someone is tracking these moves and getting ready to steal your information.

Sounds a bit scary, huh? Well, personal information is something that should be kept personal, and luckily there are some easy ways to protect yourself. Odds are, by now you've heard of Virtual Proxy Networks, or VPNs, but you may be wondering why you would want to invest in one, right? Some of them can be a bit expensive, and others are unusually cheap, leaving you wondering which to end up with. NordVPN is one of the many great services out there (it's on our list of favorites), and right now you can grab a three-year subscription to it for just $99.

In addition to their announcement of Priv no longer receiving monthly security updates, BlackBerry has announced they'll continue to support BB10 and BBOS users for at least another two years but it's not without some caveats.

In addition to their announcement of Priv no longer receiving monthly security updates, BlackBerry has announced they'll continue to support BB10 and BBOS users for at least another two years but it's not without some caveats. Those caveats include the fact that some services will be shut down over time.

A little more than a year ago BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO, John Chen, declared that BlackBerry's transition to a software company was complete. And still, in an era where consumers have been "trained" to upgrade their phones every 18-24 months, it is a testament to the durability of our designs and brand loyalty that there are still millions of people actively using BB10 and BBOS devices, many of which are already more than ten years old.

We manufactured our last BB10 and BBOS devices in 2015 and in the years since we have received many questions about our plans for ongoing support. First, we want to say thank you for your continued interest and passion for all things BlackBerry. Second, we want to acknowledge that we know your productivity relies upon the security, reliability, dependability, durability, extended battery life, and ease-of-use we designed and built into each handset. Third, we want to reward your loyalty by committing to providing you with at least two full years of additional support for BB10 and at least two full years of BlackBerry network access for BBOS devices.

Touch to back is a neat addition to the BlackBerry Motion. A simple tap on the home button will send you back a screen. You can still fully press the button to return home, but Touch to back will give you an extra option to easily go back a screen.

One thing that BlackBerry Motion users may have a hard time adjusting too is the physical home button. The dual-purpose button serves not only a fingerprint sensor for the Motion but also as the home button navigation. If you're having trouble adjusting to having to use a physical home button again — not to worry. You can easily enable Touch to back and then simply tap on the home button to go back.

DENSO Corporation and BlackBerry Limited announced they have jointly developed the world's first integrated HMI (Human Machine Interface) platform with Intel Corp. also collaborating on the product.

BlackBerry has added plenty of new partners over the past few months who are making use of the BlackBerry QNX and now, they've announced another. This time around, DENSO Corporation and BlackBerry Limited announced they have jointly developed the world's first integrated HMI (Human Machine Interface) platform with Intel Corp. also collaborating on the product.

"DENSO has developed various HMI products, such as instrument clusters, car navigation systems and head-up displays that contribute to the safety and the convenience of automobiles," said Yukihiro Kato, senior executive director, Information & Safety Systems Business Group of DENSO. "Leveraging the technology and know-how acquired through the development of these products, we have developed an information management HMI technology that will support the evolution of automobiles together with BlackBerry QNX and Intel."

"While cluster, head unit, infotainment, and entertainment screens are all part of a new digital user experience in the car, they can't be developed in isolation and need to work in tandem," said John Wall, SVP and GM of BlackBerry QNX. "Together with DENSO and Intel, we will provide a highly functional, virtual cockpit including a safety-certified digital instrument cluster that will be the new gold standard in the automotive industry. We look forward to working with DENSO and Intel on many more projects in the future."

We can expect to hear and likely see more as we head into CES. DENSO and BlackBerry will have booths at the CES in Las Vegas held from January 9 - 12, 2018. The companies' integrated HMI platform will be displayed in DENSO's booth located at 1917, North Hall.

The BlackBerry Motion is a purpose-driven smartphone designed to get you through your day, help you do more and do it effortlessly. In that mission, it succeeds, with enough juice left to enjoy your downtime. Here's our full review of the Motion!

The BlackBerry Motion is a purpose-driven smartphone designed to get you through your day, help you do more and do it effortlessly. In that mission, it succeeds, with enough juice left to enjoy your downtime.

The quick take

The BlackBerry Motion is the second device to come from the TCL/BlackBerry partnership and follows the award-winning BlackBerry KEYone. The Motion shares much of the KEYone lineage but brings a few new tricks into the mix as well such as the new Smart Convenience Key and, Locker Mode, which helps keep your photos, documents, and files secure.

Overall, the BlackBerry Motion is a fantastic addition to the BlackBerry Mobile lineup. Not only does it offer those new to the BlackBerry experience a compelling smartphone but it brings to those possibly hanging onto older BlackBerry 10 full-touch devices a nice upgrade path to a more modern smartphone that follows the BlackBerry ethos of security, privacy, productivity, and efficiency with as few compromises as possible.
