Is PC gaming getting conservative? Razer, the PC peripherals manufacturer, is now a risk-taking newcomer to the world of PC gaming laptop hardware. The Razer Edge gaming tablet and funky second-screen Razer Blade gaming laptop were bold moves, both of which made experimental departures from a somewhat stale gaming-laptop pattern. Yet, the newly announced 14-inch Razer Blade is a throwback: no touch screen. No Switchblade second-screen clickpad. No convertible tablet mode. This is a laptop. A very thin, very sleek gaming laptop, the type you'd recognize. Read [url=http://www.cnet.com/laptops/razer-blade-14-inch/4505-3121_7-35780325.html]here[/url].

[/b] The faulty unit shooting out freak electric signals was believed to have caused interference in the mobile data network across several neighbourhoods of the town. A team of the telco's crack black-spot cops tracked the rogue beer fridge to a garage in Wangaratta. This followed the Telstra network "war room" detecting the interference in the system. Telstra engineers say problems are pinpointed by "software robots" scanning reams of system data. Defective electric wa

Cloud Technology though still in its infancy is the direction to go in the future. Webroot has grabbed the bull by the horns and has implement this technology. Now for some of the pro's and cons. PROS: Maximizing the IT services 2 Sharing the large volumes of data and better access to data for large number of users 3 better security and safety of data (against cyber attacks) CONS; 1 Cloud does not work if there is no connectivity to internet 2 Clouds are targets of more sophisticated cyber attacks These are some of the points that come to mine. What are your thoughts on this and what can you can to this?

I am truly impressed with the wealth of knowledge we have on this forum, and our members input is priceless. Here is another question relevant to security. 1.) Who or whom developed the first antivirus software and when? 2.)When was the first virus discovered and what was the name of it? 3. And finally what was the first malware to be discovered and when? :D
There is constant development of Antivirus Software to to battle the malicious threats on the web today. The question that comes to my mind are we "losing" or "winning". What new malicious attacks against ones PC we haven't seen yet??? 10 years down the road what will the antivirus be like???? What types of malicious code will be thrown at us??? Our forum members are the best..............what is your opinion of the future and what can we expect???? How will the web be like 10 years from now????????????????
Earlier this week, the Associated Press's Twitter account was hacked and a hacker Tweeted out “Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is ?injured.” These mere 71 characters of text were responsible for a temporary overall value loss of an estimated $136.5 billion on the stock market. As the day went on, and people began to realize it was a hoax, the market quickly re-stabilized. It really underlines both the power of a single Tweet and the importance of using an unbreakable password.

First it uploaded a [url=http://betanews.com/2013/05/18/microsoft-wants-you-to-get-to-know-windows-8/]"Get to know Windows 8" video to YouTube[/url], and late yesterday it published a "Windows 8 End User Training Brochure" in its [url=http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39055]Download Center.[/url] Unlike the video, the 36-page PDF guide is definitely new (there’s a screenshot from April 2013) and will prove a godsend for anyone struggling to get to grips with Windows 8 or Surface. Each of the multi-colored pages clearly and concisely explains how to use a particular element of the operating system, with the aid of large, friendly illustrations.

However, that's not always the case. [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer-products-secureanywhere-antivirus.html]Webroot SecureAnywhere[/url] takes up less than 800kb of space on your hard drive*, and it uses only about 5MB of RAM on average. The impact to gaming is non-existent. Compare this to the hundred of megabytes of storage space and the sometimes couple-of-hundred megs of RAM usage for bulkier antivirus programs.

We will soon be able to attach these flexible solar panels onto building materials such as steel and windows in skyscrapers. The technology uses organic semi-conducting polymers that are dissolved into a solvent and used as ink. Although the power generated is not extremely efficient, it is exciting to hear any breakthrough in reusable energy.

I have been having trouble with the Webroot Forum loading on my XP computer using IE-8. This has been happening for awhile and it seems the more posts in a thread the longer it takes to load. This happens on [b]both[/b] XP machines. I have done all I could, clean cookies / IE / defrag etc. and it's still doing it. I have no problems with FF on the forum. This only happens on the Webroot Forum. Other forums load normal with IE-8.

[h2]"Privacy concerns surrounding Google Glass are growing rampant. Eight Congressmen even joined in on the conversation on Thursday, fearing that the cyborg-like technology could be too invasive.[/h2]Google's response: You'll know when someone wearing Glass is being sketchy. In one of the most provocative moments of this week's Google I/O developers conference, Glass engineers fielded audience questions regarding privacy concerns.

Android operating systems remains the leader among mobile OS. In the first quarter, Google's platform have been run on three out of every four sales of smartphones. The number of Android devices increased by more than 80% to 162 million distributed copies. iOS follows with a large distance of 17% share, the other platforms do not have together 10% of the market. It is clear from the latest analysis of IDC company. The largest annual increase of 133%, however, has seen Microsoft's platform. The number of activated Windows Phone devices increased from three to seven million and Microsoft deposed from the third place Canadian BlackBerry. Customers during the first quarter were looking for the path to the new BlackBerry cross-platform 10, the number of sold equipment with blackberry in the logo, therefore, compared with the same period of last year, decreased by roughly one-third to 6.3 million. Samsung retains the dominance within the operating system Android. According to t
Look out if you are a "BitCoiner".. the US is taking a closer look and taking over account funds.

I was wondering if it would be to hard to make it possible to add a comment right to a post? For instance, someone post's a helpful tip or response. It would be nice to add a thank you right to that post. They Have it in Maxthons forum, and it's really a nice feature. Just a thought, mac353
As a big fan of Prancing Horse from Maranello I am pleased to inform you that Scuderia Ferrari unveiled today their F138 contender for the Formula 1 2013 Championship.

However I wanted to show you how sleek and sexy a racing car can look here in Europe :p No flames please :D
Interesting read, and really it isn't much of a surprise. Vegas Casino's, shows, and other businesses are taking a close look at the Google Glass, and some are already making it clear that they do not welcome the device.

MGM Resorts International may follow suit."[/i] [i] [/i] [i][url=http://www.fox5vegas.com/story/22252804/las-vegas-busineses?hpt=us_bn10]Full Article[/url][/i]
Now that the [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Techie/Samsung-s-new-Galaxy-S4-The-Specs/m-p/30644#M551]successor[/url] to the most popular Android phone of all time is out, here's a bit of unexpected S4 news for you all. According to numerous reports (including [url=http://tcrn.ch/144yBOV]this one[/url] from TechCrunch), come June 26th, Google will start to offer an unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 with stock Android. "The S4 is not only carrier unlocked, but it also has a fully unlocked bootloader. That means that owners of the device can load their own software on to the device, including things like CyanogenMod, which allows for extremely deep device software customization options. In other words, this new unlocked S4 will essentially be the ultimate developer plaything, but again it's likely to have more or less niche appeal because of the high price tag." That price tag? $649, available on both AT&T and T-Mobile. I'll throw this question out to all of you
Somehow an add-on on my IE started showing up, it is called yontoo. I am not sure if it is bad or innocuous? I suspect it installed from some other program I installed in the last month. I did find it in the control panel and I did un-install it. I went to yontoo.com and it looked legit, but I am not sure. Has anyone heard of it? Thanks, Dan
