BEZALEL Offers High-Performance Wireless Charging Solutions for Apple Users


BEZALEL is an innovative wireless charging company that first became known for their best-selling Latitude case, which was a huge hit for Apple users who wanted to enjoy wireless charging capabilities with their non-Qi enabled iPhones. Now that Apple has jumped on the wireless charging bandwagon, BEZALEL’s full suite of wireless charging products provides a perfect wireless charging ecosystem for all of the latest iPhones.


In addition to the Latitude, the company’s offerings include the Futura X and Futura X Turbo wireless charging pads for home and office use, and the Omnia, which is the brand’s in-car wireless charger.




The Omnia is designed to be both a charger and a phone holder. It is equipped with a high-powered, rubberized magnetic surface that is capable of supporting even the widest and heaviest iPhones, as well as a flexible mount with a 360-degree rotation ball joint and steel-tightened spring that allows the charger to be rotated to the user’s desired angle, making it perfect for hands-free calls and GPS navigation.


While the Omnia provides one of the most reliable in-car power sources for iPhones, the Futura X brings wireless charging to the home or office in a sleek and stylish package. It can power up the latest Apple smartphones (iPhone 8 and above) and other Qi-enabled phones as a table charging pad or with a separately available stand. It is also integrated with BEZALEL’s magnetic alignment system and supports automatic charging as soon as it is plugged into a power outlet. To accommodate older iPhone models, users simply need to use the Latitude case.


The Futura X wirelessly charges devices at the same rate as cable chargers do while its successor, the Futura X Turbo, can charge Qi-enabled mobile devices 2.5 times faster than traditional wired chargers and 20 percent faster than comparable wireless chargers on the market.

Aside from speed and functionality, aesthetics are a top priority with BEZALEL, and this is evident in their beautiful, elegantly designed products. According to the Frank Wu, the founder, and CEO of BEZALEL, the Omnia was intentionally designed and developed to “look, feel and function like” a potential Apple wireless car charger would. True enough, every BEZALEL product, particularly the Omnia and the Futura X, come in a sleek and stylish design that achieves perfect visual harmony with Apple iPhone products.


BEZALEL is expected to come out with an even faster version of the Omnia that’s compatible with the latest iPhone models, as well as a Latitude wireless charging case for Samsung Galaxy users. With an ever-growing selection of products for Apple iPhones and other smartphone brands, the company is poised to make wireless charging convenient and accessible for mobile device users everywhere.

4 Surprising Lessons from Former Cybercriminals - By Roxanna Ramzipoor

4 Surprising Lessons from Former Cybercriminals - By Roxanna Ramzipoor
They say that crime doesn’t pay, and that’s often true – but some former hackers have enjoyed lucrative afterlives as security consultants, once they’ve finished their jail time. Others have drawn on their experiences to write novels. Many ends up authoring nonfiction for consumers and business owners looking to protect themselves from…well, people like the author.
To some, the ethical merits of hiring former fraudsters to do security work are debatable. Regardless of your moral proclivities, though, it’s hard to deny the former criminals’ expertise. Here are four surprising lessons that these cyber criminals-turned-good-guys have to teach us.

1. Stealing your identity is easy.

Actually, it’s embarrassingly easy. In his book The Art of Invisibilityformer hacker Kevin Mitnick says that an average hacker can commit identity theft using a computer or mobile device in just 60 seconds. Most “private” information is accessible through databases maintained by information brokers. Mitnick, who’s known as the “world’s greatest hacker,” says that most fraudsters can use these databases to access social security numbers, birthdates, addresses, and phone numbers. This personal information can then be leveraged in account takeover (ATO) attacks.
And it doesn’t stop there. You probably remember when John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chair, fell victim to a hack that claimed his emails, which were then leaked throughout the campaign – but Mitnick says that with the right training, a 14-year-old could have committed that attack. Hackers aren’t usually the sophisticated, high-tech characters we see in movies, he explains. Just about anyone is capable of manufacturing a legitimate-looking link that, once clicked, exposes the victim’s information.

2. When it comes to online safety, people are the weakest link.

Though hackers may disagree on the best methods for duping a victim, they all agree on one thing: human fallibility. Cybercriminals often attribute their success to their victims’ carelessness, regardless of whether those victims are businesses or individuals. In his book Kingpinhacker-turned-security-consultant Kevin Poulsen describes how a group of cybercriminals exploited careless businesses and their employees to steal credit card numbers.
As these criminals discovered, internet security systems can be consistently dependable, but the people operating them sometimes can’t. The hackers of Kingpin – and Poulsen himself – relied on social engineering to carry out their dastardly deeds. Instead of spending time and resources building programs to infiltrate personal or corporate accounts, the cybercriminals simply tricked people into handing over private information.

3. Online safety is impossible to guarantee.

How do you make sure your data is safe online? Former cybercriminals get this question a lot. The more information people store online, the more they fear that a fraudster might get ahold of it. As reformed hacker Mark Abene explains, it’s a catch-22: as technology gets better, fraudsters get better at what they do. So, how do you guarantee your safety online?
Former hacker Kevin Mitnick says that short of completely erasing your online presence, it’s impossible to 100% guarantee online safety. And to completely disappear online, you’d have to take three difficult steps: first, scrub your devices of their IP addresses; second, obscure your hardware and software so fraudsters can’t figure out what device you’re using to get online, and third, create anonymous email accounts that aren’t associated with your social media, online payment programs, gas or electric bill, student loans, or anything else.

4. Understanding cybercriminals is the key to beating them.

Robert Schifreen, a former hacker and author of Defeating the Hacker, says “[t]here’s no such thing as an unhackable network.” But by understanding how cybercriminals operate, he explains, businesses and ordinary users can beat them at their game. The bottom line is that hackers and fraudsters want to maximize gains while minimizing effort. What does that mean for businesses and consumers? You can deter fraudsters by making their lives just a little more difficult.
Former cybercriminals agree that there’s no way to guarantee your privacy online, but they also cite one reliable method for keeping would-be fraudsters at bay: multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication secures your data by requiring more than one piece of information to confirm your identity, like a PIN and a password, or a passphrase and an answer to a personal question. Cracking this extra layer of protection requires more effort than a typical hacker is willing to invest.
Businesses that require employees to use multi-factor authentication are less likely to suffer data breaches. That’s why reformed cyber criminals insist that companies and lay people use it to secure their data. In fact, Kevin Mitnick goes so far as to say that Podesta may have prevented the email hacking scandal just by enabling multi-factor authentication on his mobile device. No one can say for sure whether that’s true, but why take the chance?
