Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs for short, are incredibly useful. They're even more useful when you're stuck at home, as you can access the internet from different parts of the world without leaving your couch.

To this end, one of the simplest approaches is to always surf with the protection of a VPN, or virtual private network.

Note: The following post was written by our sponsor, StackSocial.

When you think of cloud storage, Dropbox and OneDrive are probably the first of a host of services that come to mind. Next, are the exorbitant rates these solutions charge to handle your information, while not giving you much flexibility with the space you're given.

[Deal Alert] Soundfreaq Sound Kick Half Off On StackSocial - Only $50

The Soundfreaq Sound Kick might be a few years old now (we reviewed it back in 2012), but it is still one of the better portable Bluetooth speakers on the market. No, it doesn't have some of the features newer speakers have, like NFC, MicroUSB charging, or apt-X. That being said, it does have the one feature essential to make any portable speaker worth purchasing – great sound.
