Myths still alive and well in 2019
Smartphone cameras are equipped with advanced technologies and reducing the visual equation to the mere number of megapixels would be an understatement. The quality of the image depends for the greater part on the lenses and on the sensors in the rooms, as well as obviously on the software.

Whether the Macs can become infected we've discovered it at our expense several years ago. Installing an antivirus on Mac OS is now common practice, as indeed on any modern device. Technology evolves, but hackers too. Relying on the beliefs of 10 years ago can be a big risk for digital secur
