You need to be careful where you search today, because the Heartbleed bug is running rampant and affecting 2/3 of all websites since late March! Fortunately, many websites have been patching the bug, so you need to change your password to each website once it has patched. I just bet the NSA has something to do with the bug, although they have denied it.

More awful news! FCC has decided to end the Internet as we know it by proposing rules that will charge broadband customers more money and promote Internet censorship! We will not stand for this! :cartmansopissedrightnow: :cartmansopissedrightnow: :cartmansopissedrightnow: :cartmansopissedrightnow: :cartmansopissedrightnow:

Also people using Windows XP will get no help because Microsoft dropped support of that operating system earlier this month.

Yesterday, Adobe upgraded its Flash Player to 13.0.0.206 in order to fix a zero-day critical flaw. Once more, check this link included here to check which version you have if you want to upgrade, okay?

Mozilla Firefox just had an update today so update today to version 29.

Here is an article about the update: http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/internet/mo ... ser-n92681

The whole web browser looks different. To do it manually which I had to do to get the updated version, do as follows. First click ‘Firefox’ at the top left of the browser. Then go to ‘help’ and click ‘about firefox‘. That will take you to a screen that will update the browser automatically. I think I just said it right but I am really having a hard time remembering how to do it as the browser is so different now.

To download Mozilla Firefox again or for the first time visit this site: http://browser-download.com/FireFox?cre ... fgodiIgApQ

I put a Hauppage card in my dad's computer back when we went through the DTV changeover. It really only gets used as an input for a FiOs box now. I hear Verizon has an app that lets you stream shows to your phone/tablet, but I don't know if it's off their servers/feed or if you can access your own DVR. I keep meaning to look into that.

China bans government purchases of Windows 8, surprising Microsoft! Well, that's just great! How will China protect itself from hackers now when the country itself is the hacker trying to steal our data? Morons!

EBay got hacked like 2 months ago and are just now urging people who have an account with them to change their password.

http://money.cnn.com/2014/05/21/technol ... ?hpt=hp_t2

It will be fun if there are stories of victims and people getting caught on the news. I can't see someone not getting caught when they would most likely have to send what they bought to their house.

Two months ago? My account hasn't been touched, but I went ahead and changed the password. Wow, they've really worked hard on the user control panel there!
