Be careful what you are sending through Snapchats, they could get you into trouble. There could be some good from the news, you might be able to dig deep and find one of those 'Snaps' you wanted to save or weren't fast enough to screenshot!

I tried to install Webroot Secure Anywhere on a laptop and was unable to due to the CPU being a Snapdragon 850 with 64-bit ARM architecture. I want to avoid emulators like the plague. Is there a version of WSA available now or being developed that will run native on this super-power efficient but less compatible CPU architecture? I worry that people will take the cheap-out approach and flock to Snapdragon laptops vs stay with the proven Intel & AMD chipsets.
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
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.

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

[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/12444iFEDB155651DD3FD4.png[/img] After downloading and installing a program with one of those downloaders, a pop up constantly appears for Fixspeedy as it iruns in the background. This PUA/PUP or Adware runs at startup. It can be found in the startup folder listed as "Graymen Technologies". There is also a folder with the same name created as well with the downloader. Good reason to have WinPatrol!

Apple is betting on IBM to cement the iPad's status as the new enterprise computing standard. The two companies -- who've long supported each other in a common though inconsistent aliliance against Microsoft -- today announced a tie-up that will have IBM develop more than 100 iOS apps, sell iPads and iPhones to industry verticals with preinstalled apps, and enhance its mobile management offerings for iOS devices. Apple will support the IBM apps through its AppleCare program.

Yesterday, during the unofficial first day of Computex 2013 in Taipei, companies like Acer and Asus used the time to start the show with a bang before it even began. Asus was the one to really steal the show when it presented a slew of new devices, none more interesting than the [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Techie/Three-In-One-Say-Hello-to-the-Asus-Transformer-Book-Trio/m-p/42492#M1062]Android/Windows 8 hybrid Transformer Book Trio[/url]. So what about today, the official first day of Computex? Mostly, it was about Intel and their new line of Haswell processors. And yet, the bigger story may be that mobile manufacturers are finally opening up to Intel's portable CPU's, according to a [url=http://bit.ly/15FnzQU]PC World article[/url]. "While Intel has notched a few Android smartphone wins on its post, it was never able to convince a big manufacturer to take a stab at a proper Atom-powered Android tablet-until Computex, that is. And at Computex, it landed one of th
Nintendo started the age of 'next-gen' gaming consoles when it released its [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_U]Wii U[/url] back in November 2012. While it was the first Nintendo console to support high-def graphics, calling it 'next-gen' is somewhat misleading considering the fact that spec-wise, it just barely outperforms the current Xbox 360 and PS3. That, coupled with reports of buggy-ness, mixed reviews, and disappointing sales numbers, led most people to overlook the console and wait for the 'big-dogs' to make their announcements as we kicked off a new year. Albeit a bit Murky, Sony [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Techie/What-the-Tech-is-going-on-in-the-world-today/m-p/27410/highlight/true#M452]made their announcement back in February[/url].

Microsoft is caught in the ultimate good news/bad news syndrome: Windows 8.1 will likely fix Windows 8's woes, but PC sales will still take a nose dive.

Why is it that WEBROOT CUSTOMER SERVICE is only interested to offer it paying/registered Webroot Customers --- who want to file a registered complaint to the lack or correct performace to their Webroot Security: that Webroot Customer Service only wants to “send a survey.” In their request that they gain information, from the donated time of its Customers? A phone call from WEBROOT Customers is enough of a commitment. (their logic in why) THERE IS NO OPTION ON WEBROOT Website TO LEAVE COMMENTS (is already a question), as traffic is high the customer service of any business. Will this format of WEBROOT’S LOGIC have anything to do with the performance in how WEBROOT’S SECURITY SOFTWARE WORKS? Your internet customer service may be paying more attention to YOUR ACCOUNT.
I received a phone call from someone representing Microsoft stating I have been having an update problem with my computer and some items on my computer were not working. toll free phone number 1-888-274-5606. strange, as the person needed to get into my computer to correct the problem with recent updates. I asked for proof they were Microsoft employee and he said my idenity was someone other than me. Down in Texas. I am in Michigan. Does Microsoft do this sort of thing officially?
Once again my scroll is locked on my PC. On the icon page the icons get larger or smaller with the mouse scroll button, I can use the mouse to click on icons and go to that page but if it requires a log on I can not type anythng. Very strange things happen. The search bar drops down with any key entered. This is happening way too often. Any one know of a fix? I did try to restore to a previous update but that would not go back, I tried to reset screen resolution as suggested previously but that had no effect. I am now on a laptop to try to fin answers. Using windows 10 freebie addition.
