The massive [url=http://www.cesweb.org/]International CES[/url] trade show in Las Vegas wraps up tomorrow, but most major tech sites have already selected who they think are the big winners in each major tech category. Digital Trends is one such tech site. You can check out their full list of winners [url=http://www.digitaltrends.com/ces/best-of-ces/]here[/url], but I'll also include a few brief highlights based off their selections below. [list] [*]LG seems to be a Digital Trends favorite at CES 2014, taking top honors in their 'Home Theater (Video)' and 'Computing' categories. DT were particularly impressed with the company's 77-inch curved OLED TV, calling it 'simply the most awesome TV we've ever seen'. Likewise, the LG Ultra PC took top honors in the 'Computing' category thanks to its ultra-slim profile, light weight, and 1080p IPS display, among other features. [*]While there were many smartphone announcements, none were from the major players like Samsung, HTC, or Moto
So i recently i bought Webroot Internet Security Complete and it's by far the best antivirus i've had. I'm really a fan of Webroot :D But the thing is i also had a license of Norton Security sitting around and wanted to give this combo a try. [b]I'm posting this as the last posts on the subject date from 2015 and i though some people would be interested to know if the latest version of Webroot and Norton are compatible as of 2017.[/b] [u][i]What i did:[/i][/u] - Uninstalled Webroot and restarted computer - Installed Norton Security, updated and restarted - installed Webroot and restarted [u][i]What happened:[/i][/u] Norton did not prompt me to uninstall Webroot and the installation went smoothly. Both Webroot and Norton don't interfere with each other. There is no system slowdown and the system is just slightly slower as if using Norton alone (of course the lightest config is using Webroot only). I've excluded Webroot in Norto

Fronm DrigitalTrends, a great article on the future of desktops. "Desktops sales have slowed because manufacturers have let their designs stagnate, but the need for a comfortable machine you can work on hasn’t gone away. Who will reinvent the PC and reap the rewards?Every other week, there seems to be story about the PC dying. This week, it was because Intel is planning on exiting the motherboard business. The screwy thing is, I think the exact opposite is about to happen. Not only is the desktop not dead, it’s about to go through a resurgence. We’re just waiting for that visionary vendor who realizes that bigger is still better, and this Lemming-like agreement that the desktop is dead is holding people back. Here’s why.How we got hereWe started off with desktop computers. The Apple II, Mac, IBM PCs, and even Commodore and Atari machines were all designed to mostly stay in one place. Our first portables were pretty ugly. My own first portable from Panasonic, called the Sr. Partn
As operating systems come to rely more and more on cloud connected services, everything from a digital personal assistant to file sharing, there comes a sometimes mutually exclusive tradeoff between complete privacy and added functionality. When systems are properly managed this choice in a tradeoff should be a normal and practical decision for the end user. However, when it is starting look like users are being deprived of the choice between absolute privacy over added functionality, then things begin to alarm privacy advocates. As [url=http://www.winbeta.org/news/how-check-and-adjust-your-privacy-settings-windows-10]WinBeta reported earlier[/url] this week in our how to section, the privacy features of Windows 10 have been getting a lot of attention and some skeptical responses. Under moving to a Software as a Service model, Windows 10 is more connected to Microsoft with more frequent updates and more interconnected cloud service features. This has created a worrying sense for some

While Google was busy canceling their NYC Nexus launch announcement (they did later [url=http://bit.ly/VZ1Q58]unveil the devices[/url] on their blog), Microsoft was busy with their own announcement on the other side of the country as the Redmond software giant prepares to release a handful of Windows 8 phones in the coming month or so across a variety of US carriers. While I won't bore (or excite), you with the details (that's what the [url=http://bit.ly/TqXFeH]article[/url] and [url=http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2411484,00.asp]review[/url] are for), I will say that Windows Phone 8 adopters will have more options from the get-go than did those who elected to give Windows Phone 7 a shot. Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly Android alternative or an iPhone 5/Galaxy S3-fighting flagship smartphone, Windows has you covered (sort of). I saw "sort of" because this is based on specs and specs alone. Sure, on paper, the new Nokia 920, HTC Windows Phone 8X, and Samsung At

Google has warned its Glass wearable computer could result in eye strain and headaches - and has banned children from wearing the gadget amid fears it could damage their eyesight. The search giant also advises people who have had laser eye surgery to check with their doctors. The warnings come amid growing concern over the safety of looking at the tiny screen all day.

'Like when wearing glasses, some people may feel eye strain or get a headache. 'If you’ve had Lasik surgery, ask your doctor about risks of eye impact damage before using Glass. Don’t let children under 13 use Glass as it could harm developing vision.' Google has also banned those

Grant Gross Jul 16, 2014 The U.S. Senate has passed a bill that would allow mobile phone customers to unlock their devices for the purposes of switching carriers. The Senate, late Tuesday, approved the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act by unanimous consent. The bill would overturn a January 2013 decision by the Library of Congress that removed legal protections for mobile phone unlocking. The library had previously allowed phone unlocking as an exception to the security circumvention provisions in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The DMCA gives the Library of Congress rule-making authority over the anti-circumvention provisions in the law. The House of Representatives passed its own version of a mobile phone unlocking bill in February. The House would have to pass the Senate bill before it goes to President Barack Obama for his signature. The Senate bill reinstates a 2010 rule by the librarian of Con
Why did Microsoft send me an email on 7/10/20 that said they automatically renewed my Microsoft Windows Defender Advanced Threat Account on 7/9/20 for $299.99 because they supposedly were not able to reach me ? I have no knowledge of such an account and they gave me 48 hours to cancel it at a telephone number which only says it does not receive text messages when I try to call to find out if the e-mail is legit.
There is a program called Fixspeedy out there that is for cleaning and speeding up your PC, The website is fixspeedy.com. It is rather new and listed as "suspicious" by BrightCloud.
