An elegant place with a calming atmosphere, sporting a gorgeous lit bar with beautiful statues. Food portions are excellent, with the appies served on stylish marble slabs, the naan in baskets, and the drinks in sideways glasses! Definitely recommend the Mango Lassi!

Many of you in the Cosplayer world have either heard of or used Tik-Tok. If this is you, please uninstall it, or at least be aware of what this Tool is actually doing.

2149 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, BC V1Y 7X1

Was having major troubles with my teeth for the first time in my life, other then only having three wisdom teeth and needing one removed to even out my mouth. Having been born lucky with an almost perfect jaw. I take great pride trying to maintain this bite, but, I couldn’t get my hands into my mouth to floss, and the water pick wasn’t cutting it. I lamented about this at work, as I had just seen my dentist and somehow, I was getting cavities in places I knew I was flossing. She suggested this place, and though nervous to try someone else, within a month, this team had my mouth on the road to recovery, as they had removed tartar buildup under the gums which relieved tension in my face muscles. A truly incredible experience, I recommend this place for SMILES 100%!!!!

Research Your Apps – Free Doesn’t Mean Free

I’m quite fond of the fact that in our technical day and age, it is becoming more and more common place to ‘Have an App for that!’ Apps make our lives easier, from helping cutting down extraneous tasks to graphic editing. For Android users, many apps are free, made by other users, which can include options such as either ‘Pay to use better options’ or ‘Pay to get rid of ads’.

That being said, an easily downloaded application has become scammers next target. A Toronto Security company has discovered an App called ‘Xhelper’ which is now termed as a malware that is impossible to remove, as it has the ability to reinstall itself and is designed to remain hidden! It even has code to ensure it isn’t deleted when a Factory Reset is prompted, and performs malicious actions such as “showing advertisements to the users, downloading and executing more malicious payloads from its remote server onto the users device”

My advice as a tech user is to research your apps before downloading! Look through those Reviews, weed out the Automated replies, make sure this app is right for you, and if it looks suspicious, DON’T DOWNLOAD!!!! And as an extra layer of protection, or to ensure that you haven’t already succumbed to this malware, install a malware detector.

Stay safe out there my friends!
