    I think they are a lot bigger than the 800 pound gorilla and even if they are very moral you still need to be careful around such a large beast. Still, allowing ABP to run is a step in the right...

    Sounds like Chrome is getting better, but I'll probably wait until something really stands out to make me switch.

    I still haven't heard how Chrome treats ads. I suppose I also wonder if it...

    64 bit Chrome

    I've used FireFox almost as long as it has been around. I initially moved to it from IE because of security problems with the latter. I've stayed away from Chrome for a long time, mostly because...

    We sure are getting intimately involved with our computers. I could change one or two words in each of these and it would be good advice on sexual intercourse, too. :-)

    Cubicle rats do tend to have myopia. I'm sure it means something within their little work group. They probably spent a ton of money (employee time = money) coming up with that name and I'm sure...

    It appears that EMET protects Microsoft products only. Oh, and Acrobat. We still use Windows 7 Pro on all of our systems. But over the years we have switched to FireFox, Open Office, and PDF...

    Bluetooth is Auto and Started.

    The only device with an alert is that USB hub. It is a motherboard hub, not an external one. But I still don't think that should cause the whole Devices and...

    Devices and Printers hanging

    I click Devices and Printers. It opens up the CP window and the green bar starts traveling across the top. And it just never stops, nor does it display the devices and printers that it finds. I've...

    Actually, most businesses are run by people who are in way over their heads. So they tend to follow the latest management fad. It's safer that way. I would expect to see some cloud-like data...

    You mean, like cars and refrigeration and immunizations? It would seem that we are already there.

    I think the one sure thing in this world is that things will always keep changing. Always. And...

    I don't think so. Remember the howling outrage over Windows 8? It's the simple "consumers" who want simpler technology. The diehards want more power. I just built my first computer since 1993...

    Bingo!

    The descent of computers into consumerism and the complete and total focus of the industry on that sector appalls me. Even this article mentions the dire, grim future of Windows as "the...

    Ah, I hadn't thought of that. But Ubuntu has announced its notepad version and it looks a lot slicker than Android. At least the stuff they show looks a lot better than the stuff on my phone.

    Thank you for this article! I will be studying it and these comments very closely because I've been pretty worried about Android security.
