Hiding your data in a "time hole?" The future is closer than you may think. According to this article, the proof of concept already exists. In fact, "The cloak successfully hid data added at a rate of 12.7 gigabits per second." If this research pans out, the results will be pretty exciting to see. [i] [/i] [i]If you’ve ever wanted to edit an event from your history, then help may soon be at hand. Electrical engineers have used lasers to create a cloak that can hide communications in a 'time hole', so that it seems as if they were never sent. The method, published today in Nature, is the first that can cloak data streams sent at the rapid rates typically seen in telecommunications systems. It opens the door to ultra-secure transmission schemes, and may also provide a way to better shield information from noise corruption.[/i] [i] [/i] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/3876i002060A2616ACDCD.jpg[/img] [i] [/i] This is

[b]Do you utilize virtualization? If so, you're probably used to making some sacrifices when it comes to your security. [/b] The most obvious of these sacrifices is the performance degredation. Traditional AV software comes with a performance impact, and you may have resigned yourself to accepting excessive use of your limited virtual resources any time the software is scanning, updating, or even idling. Worse yet, when it steps up to do its job for you, it can often times have negative repercussions in terms of what happens resource-wise. And if you try to fight the performance impact with an agentless antivirus system, historically, you should be prepared to sacrifice the quality of your security instead. If you're going with an agentless antivirus system, you can't scan virtual memory, which is right where many types of malware try to hide. Thus, you recoup performance at the expense of security.

The defendant’s attorney, Robin Shellow of Milwaukee, said it’s “one of the most important constitutional issues of the wired era.” Shellow is making a novel argument that the federal magistrate’s decryption order is akin to forcing her client to build a case for the go

Hi. My name is Marc, from Scottsdale, Arizona. I have just started using Webroot Secure Anywhere. I usually do not take the time to write product reviews good or bad, but I am so impressed by the product that I wanted to leave a 5-star review somewhere. I purchased it direct from the company website, as opposed to Amazon or other retailer where they have a system for user reviews. Is there such a place here, or should I post back to this forum with my review and some technical observations? Thanks.
Another brilliant blast of light arcs across the night's sky, dramatically illuminating the Catatumbo River below. This is 'Relámpago del Catatumbo' in a corner of north western Venezuela - otherwise known as 'the everlasting storm'. The unique atmospheric phenomenon generates an estimated 1.2m lightning strikes a year and is visible from almost 250 miles away. Storm clouds gather in the same spot five-miles above Lake Maracaibo up to 160 nights per year, lasting for about 10 hours at a time. There are several theories to explain the continuous storms including high winds which sweep across the lake forming clouds when they meet the Andean mountains. Others link it to the boggy marshes releasing methane gas.

Posted Wednesday on [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=VQb5caeSo00]YouTube[/url], and embedded into [url=http://blogs.technet.com/b/microsoft_blog/archive/2013/06/05/windows-8-1-updates-unveiled-at-computex-2013.aspx]a Microsoft blog[/url], the tour conducted by Jensen Harris, Microsoft's director of program management for Windows User Experience, shows off key enhancements to the Start screen, the All Apps screen, and the search tool. The video kicks off with a glimpse of the new lock screen, which can now display a collage of photos gathered from your PC and your SkyDrive account. The tour then segues to the Start screen where you can now shrink or enlarge your tiles using a wider array of sizes. Then it's on to the All Apps screen, where tiles can now be sorted by date installed, most used, or category, as well as by name. Tiles from the All Apps screen can easily be ad
I would really like to know if webroot has any plans to work with other browsers besides IE and FireFox? Browsers like Opera, Safari, or any of the other spin off's Chrome or Firefox or IE? Is there a reason software company's only cater to those browsers? Not everyone uses IE or Firefox!! Just a curious question. It would be nice. These are a few in question!

Standard operating procedure is to give the affected company sixty days before publishing the problem, keeping things under wraps until a fix can be shipped out. But when it comes to critical vulnerabilities that are actively being exploited, Google wants its researchers to cut that down to just a week.

Google Glass just got a little bit better. The search giant on Tuesday [url=https://plus.google.com/+projectglass/posts/9CdE6ysitvP]announced[/url] that it has improved its [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/google-glass/]Google Glass[/url] photo-taking with some new features. Chief among the new features is the camera's ability to snap multiple photos at once, so users can choose which version is best. The camera can now also detect low-light environments and brighten it up to make it clearer. It's also capable of doing a better job of capturing movement. In addition to the new camera features, users can now also add captions to photos they take.

Yahoo has revamped its search results page as part of an ongoing transformation. Rolled out Wednesday, the design changes display the actual search results higher on the page without some of the clutter that appeared in the older version. A new navigation bar at the top offers links to other Yahoo pages, including the home page, Mail, News, Finance, Weather, and Flickr. That bar will also eventually wind its way to other Yahoo pages. Yahoo also said the page loads faster thanks to some behind-the-scenes enhancements, while the overall design is a bit more in line with that of its home page. And the company promises more changes ahead for its search results page. Read [url=http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57587772-93/yahoo-search-results-page-gets-a-makeover/]here[/url].

Samsung's ever expanding universe of tablets welcomed a new 8-inch member to its Galaxy Tab 3 series. The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, which fits comfortably between the [url=http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57581812-94/samsung-reveals-7-inch-galaxy-tab-3/]7-inch [/url]and [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/tablets/samsung-galaxy-tab-3/4505-3126_7-35781419.html]10.1-inch[/url] models in the series, ships with Android 4.2, sports a 1,280x800-pixel resolution TFT display, and houses a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. The 8-inch tablet will come with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and is designed to fit comfortably in one hand. It also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and microSD card expansion slot. The tablet's design includes a button on the bottom bezel and sleek, silver and white body, which makes it look similar to other current Samsung Galaxy mobile devices, like the [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/samsung-galaxy-s4/]S4 smartphone[/url].

Samsung's long-rumored [url=http://crave.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/samsung-galaxy-s4-active-leaks-better-looking-than-the-s4-50011270/]Galaxy S4 Active[/url] has entered the realm of officialdom at last, and will be out in the U.K. this summer, Samsung has confirmed. The S4 Active is a rugged version of the regular S4, aimed at outdoorsy types who don't want a phone that'll faint at the first sight of dust or water. The phone has a sealed design that -- Samsung [url=http://global.samsungtomorrow.com/?p=24447]promises[/url] -- will protect the S4 Active from water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter. More than enough protection against dropping it in your pint, then, but Samsung also reckons you'll be able to take underwater photos using the Active's 8-megapixel camera, and a new "Aqua Mode."

Consumers who own tablets running Microsoft's Windows RT operating system will get a new version of the software giant's widely used e-mail program, Outlook 2013 RT, later this year. At the Computex computer trade show in Taiwan, Microsoft said Wednesday that the e-mail program will be included as part of the [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/windows-8-review/]Windows 8[/url].1 update [url=http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57584370-75/windows-blue-gets-official-name-windows-8.1/]announced last month[/url]. Outlook 2013 RT will be available as a free update for [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/tablets/]tablets[/url] running Windows RT, the scaled-down version of Windows 8, and will be included in Windows RT devices going forward.

Intel has officially dubbed the next version of its high-speed port "Thunderbolt 2." The technology was actually [url=http://news.cnet.com/8301-11386_3-57578503-76/intel-shows-off-speedier-thunderbolt-tech/]revealed at the National Association of Broadcasters conference in April[/url] under the code name Falcon Ridge. Technically, Thunderbolt 2 is a controller chip that doubles the speed of the first-generation port, supporting up to 20Gbps bidirectionally. That means the cables can now support both transferring a 4K video and putting it on screen at the same time. Current versions of Thunderbolt are limited to an individual 10Gbs channel each for both data and display, less than the required bandwidth for 4K video transfer, Intel said in a [url=http://blogs.intel.com/technology/]blog post[/url] Tuesday.

As some of you may or may not know, there is a major computer exhibition happening this week across the Pacific. Computex 2013 in Taipei, Taiwan, is where many PC, chip, tablet, and mobile manufacturers show off their latest and greatest (much like CES, but more 'real products that will soon be available' rather than 'awesome concepts from the future that you may see go mainstream in five years'). And while the show officially starts June 4 (keeping in mind that Taiwan is 12-15 hours (Eastern to Pacific) ahead of the US), many companies (such as Taiwan's own Asus and Acer) have already made their big announcements, the most interesting [so far] being Asus's Transformer Book Trio, which, in a nutshell is a combination of three computing devices and two operating systems. Basically, it's an Android tablet that you can snap into a keyboard, at which point it becomes a laptop capable running both Android and Windows 8. The other twist? The keyboard has it's own hard drive with a Cor

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].
