Something tells me Google's legal team and Google's other employees are probably not seeing eye to eye on this issue... [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/5488i7F2FEC8302C2F8D0.jpg[/img] Ever since Google announced Google Fiber, a service that will provide ultra-fast 1GBPS internet, it has had a provision in its TOS which states that the service cannot be used to host a server. Taking issue with this was a potential customer who filed a complaint against the policy in 2012. So Google's lawyers said: [i]Your Google Fiber account is for your use and the reasonable use of your guests. Unless you have a written agreement with Google Fiber permitting you do so, you should not host any type of server using your Google Fiber connection, use your Google Fiber account to provide a large number of people with Internet access, or use your Google Fiber account to provide commercial services to third parties (including, but not limited to, se

How do you shake up the ever-evolving, Curved TV-displaying, 41 Megapixel Phone-wielding, BIG, BOLD, and expensive world of tech these days? You pull a Google. ([url=http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2422279,00.asp]PC Mag story[/url]) Yesterday, Google shocked everyone with the $35 Chromecast, a potential TV game-changer that's cheaper than most HDMI cables. All you need is what you probably already have-an Android or iOS device (or laptop), an HDTV, and a WiFi connection. From there, you just plug it in to your TV and it turns into a remote control that pulls video from the cloud and projects it on the big screen. And right now, Google's offering three months of free Netflix streaming when you dish out that $35. I say awesomeness and a must-buy. What do you think?

Hey Guys and Gals :) I am very familiar with o/s for windows through XP Home addition so I'm not exactly new to this... I am however fairly new to Windows 7 and that is what my laptop came with. Ok... That being said, I am using (Add and Remove Programs) to un-install the Power2Go program and it is giving me the following message... "The installation source for this program is not available. Verify that the source exists and you can access it. C:WindowsInstallere393c.msi" note: the directory c:windowsinstaller actually does not exist on my harddrive and cannot find any such file with search. I am wondering if there is an easy way to completely remove this program safely without manually going through my registry and deleting every key that refers to Power2Go after manually deleting the program files from my hd. Thanks for you help in advance guys and gals.

Hello everyone, I am fairly good with computers and have gotten a virus which keeps coming back. My computer was working fine, and then I got a virus which messes up the screen, meaning shows a pattern of my screen warped and shrunk and this pattern covers the screen, then gets a blue screen in dos, and lastly shuts off the computer a few seconds after. This shut-down is similar to for example, pulling the plug, then when I try to turn on the computer, before it gets to windows, it repeatedly shuts down every time. Sometimes when I get to windows it will not stay very long, or at least long enough for me to do a virus scan. I am sure this is a new virus. TO EVERYONE WHO THINKS I HAVE A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM BECAUSE ITS SUMMER: I tried taking out my hard drive, removing the cables, then i turned on my computer without a hard drive on, it stayed on for several hours, and then i shut it down by pressing the button. I tried to delete partitions and make new ones,

That release schedule should give OEMs plenty of opportunity to ready devices to ship with Windows 8.1 preinstalled in time for the holidays, Reller said.

Microsoft is pulling the plug on MSN TV, a service formerly known as WebTV, as Apple ramps up its set-top box efforts.

[b]THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION[/b] has agreed to hand down tougher sentences to those convicted of cyber crimes. The European Commission has been investigating the varying sentences that can be imposed on those convicted of cyber crimes among the 28 member states of the European Union. Now the commission has agreed upon tougher sentences and proposed new laws such as an "illegal interception" law. According to the commission directive, criminal penalties are set at a minimum of two years. The European Commission also said that instigating, aiding and abetting any cyber crime offences can also be penalised. The commission made specific reference to botnet owners, saying that when a signficant number of systems have been affected by an attack, there will be a minimum three year prison term upon conviction, and when a botnet causes "serious damage" or is deployed against critical infrastructure, the sentence will be increased to five years.
