[b]Google Unveils Self-Driving Car Prototype[/b] End of retrofits? Google has built a completely self-driving car from the ground up. RANCHOS PALOS VERDES, Calif. — Google has been building self-driving cars for years, but what we've seen so far has always been retrofits of existing cars — until now. The search giant unveiled on Tuesday a fully autonomous self-driving car, built from the ground up by Google and its partners.

Whenever I go to the Intellicast.com weather site, a second tab pops up advising me to go to appround-dot-us and download something to make the PC run or stream faster. I use Webroot anti-virus, which immediately blocks any forced downloads, but I have a suspicion that something might have been downloaded that triggers the second tab to appear. I searched Control Panel, but couldn't find anything. No issues when not using a browser, but I do get this pop-up when using either Firefox or Chrome. Forgot to mention that the pop-up tab takes me to this web site: www-dot-.mypcbackup-dot-com, by means of this URL:www-dot-lpcloudsvr302-dot-com/725A482A73486B6671742822343A614E.. Sometimes an ad for something called "Lightspark Player Pro" pops up in yet another tab. Has anyone here encountered this virus? Thanks, Roy
Hi, Pleeeese could you help me out with this printer of mine! It just wont print. I've been using it for a few months with no probs but since I changed the cartridges, apart from five or six pages from the web, it dosen't print anything, dead as a doornail. All the print jobs are queing but one is trying to delete and is stuck, it won't cancel. I've also noticed that next to it's name on the control panel, it has (Copy 1), is this OK? I've tried diagnostics which had corrected it for that one time but has made no overall difference. Can you help? It's an HP Deskjet 1050 J410 series.
In this video, we'll demonstrate the new look and feel of our console. It features a cleaner, more contemporary design with responsive and intuitive enhancements based on customer research. We also cover improvements to system status, actionable remediation workflows, granular visibility and user error prevention. Questions and AnswersWe had so many people asking great questions at the end of the demo that we thought we'd write these out for everyone. Lots of great info but if you have other questions for us, please ask away in the comments below. Does the ConnectWise Automate plugin change as a result of this new interface?None of RMMs affected. API remains as is. I'm sorry I might have missed it, but if site policy is going away, how can we go about with granular control of the policy on the site level within the global policy?Sorry for confusion there old style policy still available for now but will go as new UI/UX changes.

This is not a Microsoft problem. For more than 2 months now I have bought and returned several external CD burners from Amazon. None of them work properly. Amazon has taken them back and replaced each with another one. I have talked to around 12 people/techs during this time. One person suggested downloading VideoLAN which has created a huge problem. When I discovered this was a mistake, I uninstalled this from my control panel. No good. Every day now I turn on my computer, Slimware Driver Updates appear on two screens. I can’t get rid of them. How do I do this? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you and be safe out there. All the best, Wayne
[b]Back up everything on any device you intend to bring[/b] Laptops aren’t the only data-rich devices we carry around anymore. Increasingly, we’re carrying sensitive data on our MP3 players, portable hard drives and thumbdrives, and smartphones (and the tiny memory cards inside of them), simply because it’s convenient to do so. Don’t wait until disaster strikes and you realize you’ve left your iPhone in a taxi in another state (or worse, another country).

You should also password protect your devices. If you have a laptop, set up a login to access your desktop. If you have a mobile device, set up your access code.

The paper, published in the Nature Nanotechnology scientific journal, talks about how the team has created a way to use lithium in a battery's anode component, rather than the typical electrolyte section. This should should allow for those batteries to keep their charge up to three times the lenght of today's packs, which should please people who have to resort to [url=http://store.wpcentral.com/?utm_term=storelink&utm_content=sidebarmain&utm_campaign=community&utm_source=d_wp&utm_medium=content]external battery packs[/url] to extend their talk or data time.

[i](Reuters) - A German court ruled on Thursday that people have the right to claim compensation from service providers if their Internet access is disrupted, because the Internet is an "essential" part of life.[/i] [i] [/i] Full story [url=http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/01/24/us-germany-internet-idUSBRE90N15H20130124]here.[/url] This decision doesn't make the Internet a human right in Germany though. At least not yet. At the moment, it just means you can get compensated in Germany if the Internet you're paying for gets cut off. However, there is certainly a global movement towards recognizing Internet access as a human right. Mashable reported last year on a United Nations resolution declaring exactly that (see [url=http://mashable.com/2012/07/06/internet-human-right/]here[/url] for that story).

To stop the messages, simply head to Google Chrome's "content settings" section of the settings tab, scroll down to Fullscreen and click "Manage exceptions".

The cable industry insists that it's ready and able to compete with Google Fiber when it comes to delivering ultra high-speed broadband. Indeed, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts last week showed off a 3Gbps cable broadband connection at the industry's annual trade show in Washington, D.C. That's three times faster than Google Fiber, which itself is nearly 150 times faster than the current average broadband connection in the U.S. Armed with that capability, he confidently welcomed Google's challenge to deliver ultra high-speed broadband to consumers. "I hope there's a demand for (Google Fiber)," he said during a keynote session at the Cable Show. "The more customers crave speed, the more the kids in the garage and the geniuses around the world can invent applications that require speed. That's the best thing that can happen to our industry. We have to embrace that competition." But Roberts' words and one demo don't match up with the actions of his industry. The cable providers ha
When it was first introduced at CES 2013, Lenovo described the Helix hybrid laptop-tablet as a "flip and rip" system, which sounded like the usually staid company was trying to add a little sizzle to the normally conservative ThinkPad lineup. In person, this detachable screen hybrid still has a very ThinkPad-like look and feel, and from a distance, looks nearly identical to the army of ThinkPads on office and cubicle desks around the world. The flipping and ripping comes into play when you activate the small hinge-based latch for removing the display from the rest of the body. In this case, the screen pops off much like any other hybrid's, but then can reattach after being rotated 180 degrees, leaving the screen facing out from the back of the system. That makes for a good presentation mode, which I sometimes call a kiosk setup. Of course, you can also use the Helix screen by itself as a Windows 8 slate.

I think I have a virus, but the Webroot scan is not detecting anything. At least once a day, my laptop becomes possessed and does things like begins typing in all caps, highlights text, launches new internet pages in a separate window, etc. Does that sound like a virus? (My laptop did tip over once and took a tiny spill, so not sure if that could be the cause.) Please help. Thank you.

Earlier this year, Huawei impressed us with its super-skinny [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/huawei-ascend-p2/4505-6452_7-35619073.html]Ascend P2[/url], but now the up-and-coming Chinese firm is looking to wow us a second time with the Ascend P6, a similar Android smartphone with a few hardware tweaks. Huawei is fond of crafting creepily thin phones, and the P6 is no exception, measuring a slender 6.18 millimeters (0.24-inch) thick. The aluminium edges are very reminiscent of the iPhone, but the bottom of the phone is rounded, giving the P6 a tiny bit of original flair. Like the P2, the P6 sports a 4.7-inch 720p display, and plays host to a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. There's an 8-megapixel camera glued to its rump, while unusually, the front-facing snapper is a 5-megapixel affair, making the P6 ideal for Skype calls or carefully-posed sexy selfies. Inside you'll find a 1.5GHz quad-core chip powering the P6, backed up by a hearty 2GB of RAM. The
