Private Wifi

Did you know that, in any public WiFi hotspot, an enterprising hacker can view any information you’re sending or accessing? Firewalls and antivirus software can’t stop it, but Private Wifi can. The service protects your identity and secures your sensitive information by encrypting everything you send and receive, including website traffic, emails, attachments and IMs, making it invisible to hackers on any public network, anywhere in the world — plus it masks your IP address for an added level of security. The service uses industry-standard 128-bit encryption, the same technology banks and credit card companies use. PC and Mac compatible; coming soon for iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire. $9.95/ month or $84.95/year.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
