[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).

By [url=http://www.itproportal.com/staff/paulcooper/]Paul Cooper Posted June 12 2014[/url] Summary/ You know those annoying messages that say "Press ESC at any time to exit fullscreen. Allow fullscreen?" Here's how to never, ever see those again. 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". Or you can just copy [i]chrome://settings/contentExceptions#fullscreen[/i] into your address bar, if you don't want to go rummaging through all the confusing settings. betanews/ full read here/ [url=http://betanews.com/2014/06/12/banish-annoying-allow-fullscreen-messages-in-google-chrome/]http://betanews.com/2014/06/12/banish-annoying-allow-fullscreen-messages-in-google-chrome/[/url] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/11026i16989BAED1996169.jpg[/img]
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.
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
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.
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.

CNN is reporting the Microsoft wants to move to a per year fee scheme for Office. While I cannot provide the link (old outdated phone I am using), I wonder what you think about the idea of $100.00/year for Microsoft Office? If you don't like the idea (And I don't), really what is the difference between a yearly fee for Office and the yearly fee for security software that we usually gladly pay?
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

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duqu]Duqu[/url] was discovered on September 1st, 2011 by researchers at the Budapest University of Technology. It is thought to be related to the Stuxnet worm, however rather than targetting industrial control software directly, Duqu offers a more general remote access to infected systems. One of the interesting facts about Duqu is that Kaspersky Labs turned to the Internet to crowdsource solving the problem of what language a key part of the virus was written in. With more than 200 comments and dozens of emails, the mystery was solved. It turned out to be a custom C extension called "OO C", compiled in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. This particular combination points to the virus being written by some experienced, old-school programmers. Few infections have been found in the wild, partially because Duqu is programmed to remove itself after 36 days. Most of those infections were focused on Iran. &nbs
If you think you’re taking adequate steps for your cybersecurity, you’re in good company. Nearly 9 out of 10 Americans (89%) believe they’re taking appropriate steps to stay safe online, according to our most recent version of an annual survey, 2020’s Most (and Least) Cyber-Secure States. Unfortunately, in terms of our actual behavior, the average American’s cyber-safety habits put us at about 58% on our cyber-risk scale. If you think about that in terms of letter grades in school, that’s an F. Not pretty, right? Let’s back up a little and go over some positives. Overall, the cyber-safest states in the U.S. are Nebraska, New Hampshire, Wyoming, Oregon, and New Jersey. Well done, Oregon!Good habits of the cyber-safe: Protecting all your devices with antivirus and a VPN. Regularly backing up data, preferably to both a physical drive and a secure cloud backup. Keeping your operating systems, antivirus software, and other apps up to date. Investigating and improving on the security of al
