Bad Bunny - X 100PRE Music Album Reviews

The expertly sequenced and always vibrant debut from the Puerto Rican rapper collects every fascinating side of Bad Bunny into one singular statement.
In the first three years of his nascent career, Bad Bunny put out enough singles and did enough guest features to fill out several albums. As an audition for pop superstardom, it’s been impressive. He can adapt to seemingly any style—trap, R&B, reggaetón, bachata, dembow—with a heavy, nasal croon perpetually drenched in Auto-Tune. He became a huge star in 2018, circumventing terrestrial radio and government censorship to become the third-most streamed artist in the world on YouTube. Why does Bad Bunny even need to release an album?

Hidden24 Review

Created as a reaction to Swedish snooping laws, Hidden24's host-based VPN isn't for everyone, but it will grant ex-pats access to BBC iPlayer.

Should I Buy Hidden24?
A serious VPN solution designed for people who need to communicate anonymously. In addition to top-notch security, it'll also allow you to unblock streaming services such as Netflix US and BBC iPlayer from abroad.

Price When Reviewed
  • $5.99 per month
If you're looking for a VPN that focuses on anonymity and privacy whilst online, Hidden24 could be just it. Read on for our Hidden24 VPN review (to find out more about how a VPN can benefit you, visit: What is a VPN?)

Created by a group of Swedish journalists in 2005 in response to their country's snooping laws, Hidden24 tunnels your traffic to its own UK-based server farm.

Hidden24 uses the operating system's own VPN capability, so it will work on any device (Android, Mac, iPhone or Linux) that has a built-in VPN client.

It does mean that it's not as simple as downloading an app and clicking connect, but detailed, graphical setup guides are available for all common platforms, but all are as simple as clicking a few buttons and entering your credentials.

In Windows, the VPN appears above the list of wifi networks in the toolbar. Click it and the VPN configuration window appears. Click the VPN connection and click Connect. That's all there is to it.
The downside of using the operating system's own VPN is that you only have the options available to that platform. This means no kill switch to drop connections or kill applications if the VPN tunnel collapses. In testing, the service was stable and fast, however.

Hidden24 now has servers in the UK and US, so if you're looking to watch Netflix US shows in the UK or BBC iPlayer from abroad, you'll find Hidden24 useful (check out our best VPN round-up for alternatives)

We had an initial problem changing our account password, and Support was very helpful indeed, though lodging a support ticket with them on a Friday afternoon is probably why the response was delayed until the following Monday.

We were also told by the company that many other VPN services can offer access points in so many countries because they simply rent cloud services, which are obviously not completely under the control of the provider.

Hidden24 has been built from the ground up to be 100% owned, operated and controlled by Hidden24. The service itself operates from 9 UK data centres, each with an operator class internet connection.

Though head office is in Sweden, which is in the group of "14-eyes" countries, Hidden24 claims that they "do not log anything". It also doesn't keep a log of its customers beyond email address and credit card number.

As well as the £4.99 1-month option, and 12-month option for £47.88/year (£3.99 per month), there's also a recurring 3-month option for £13.47. There's an exclusive deal available that'll get you the first three months for just £3.33, too. You can take advantage of that deal here.

This puts it on a par with CyberGhost, but the terms and conditions state that while you can cancel at any time, there are no refunds for the remaining time for your subscription.

The only payment option for Hidden24 seems to be credit cards. No PayPal, Bitcoin or other options are listed on the website. This is bound to upset those looking for 100% anonymity.

LG G8 ThinQ Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

What to expect from LG's next flagship phone and when - here's everything we know about the LG G8 ThinQ launch date, specifications and anticipated price.
In previous years LG has always favoured the MWC tradeshow for its flagship phone launch, which is traditionally held in late February/early March.
