Just when you thought it was safe to log back on to your Apple computer after this month’s previous virus scare, it seems that maybe it isn’t. According to the Herald Sun, another Mac Trojan virus has been discovered, and this one has been infecting Apple computers via a Java plug-in. It seems to be spreading across computers when individuals open their respective emails with links leading them to vicious malware. The newest virus has been christened “SabPub,” an abbreviation of its official name, “Backdoor.OSX.SapPUb.” Researchers and experts are saying this new threat has the potential to taint more Mac computers than the one that infected over 600,000 earlier this month.
It’s certainly been a busy few days for Facebook. After making headlines for acquiring Instagram to the tune of a billion dollars, the social media company is back in the news again for yet another interesting reason. Facebook has now upgraded the “Download Your Information” feature which enables users to download an archive of their entire account history. Pretty nifty, right?
In this economy, the word ‘free’ can hold a certain kind of significance for some individuals. With wallets getting tighter and penny pinching becoming the norm, it helps to be able to get items at a discounted price. However, does the same apply to finding a web host reseller? Now, there’s a million dollar question. It is a fact that web hosting is a booming enterprise. With more and more people looking to launch their own respective websites for business or personal use, web hosting providers are thriving. While having free web hosting can be good for those that are on a budget, there are some disadvantages that consumers may not be aware of. To that end, it helps to be informed.
It has often been said that Apple computers weren’t susceptible to a virus. In fact, that was one of the shining gems that they were known for. Well, perhaps it’s time to think again. It was just reported that more than 600,000 Macs are, in fact, infected with a virus known as the Flashback Trojan. According to bgr.com, Russian anti-virus vendor Dr. Web has discovered that a vicious malware known as “BackDoor.Flashback,39” is currently present on at least 600,000 Mac computers.
It seems to be an accepted fact that the minds at Google are always up to something. Just last week, it was announced that the corporation was designing their own tablet, and now it seems they’re trying to offer users more insight into their Google account doings. It was recently announced that Google is launching Account Activity, a new feature that enables users, that sign up, a chance to take stock of what exactly they are doing online.
If the minds at Google had it their way they’d probably take over the world. It was just announced that the Google empire is about to expand by adding an online tablet store along with future tablets that they will be co-branding. According to the Washington Post, Google will be selling their tablets directly to consumers and will also be imitating the Apple/Amazon model. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Furthermore, USA Today states that the company will be running its Android operating systems on these devices which will undoubtedly give them an advantage.
Jaded may be the word when it comes to communication these days. While communication has always been something of a two-way street, some may agree that things were a lot less convoluted when it just involved using a simple telephone. Things have undoubtedly changed. Nowadays, individuals have been spoiled with different methods such as email, instant messaging and text messages, and as a result some of us have forgotten how to differentiate when it’s important and necessary to use each one. This can be quite an issue when it relates to the business world…especially texting.
Two years ago, if anyone would have told me that I’d be working in web hosting, I’d have called them a liar. It is an accepted fact among my peers and colleagues that I like writing. Putting pen to paper just seems to beguile me — hence the reason I majored in journalism and communications. I wanted to meet people, inspire others and interview legends while clutching a digital audio recorder and asking pressing questions. It’s funny that sometimes the things that we plan on doing don’t quite work out the way that we expected – not that there’s anything wrong with that. After all, sometimes our trajectories in terms of a career can lead us to something we didn’t quite anticipate…like web hosting for example.
When it comes to getting information nowadays, the Internet seems to be everyone’s primary source. There’s nothing wrong with that. After all, it is 2012. While encyclopedias now appear to be a thing of the past, everyone seems to turn to the World Wide Web as a digital supplier, an ever-spewing funnel, of news and knowledge. Nevertheless, there are things that can hinder that particular funnel in terms of being appealing and captivating when it comes to some websites.
Internet Explorer (IE) used to be the top dog of browsers back in the day. It was so much better than what AOL had to offer, and hey, it came pre-installed on every new PC! The little blue “e” was how you got to the Internet. Then slowly, but surely, folks wised up, and other browsers such as Opera, Firefox and Chrome emerged with better interfaces, better features and a lot less freezing. Plus the other guys don’t have nearly as many security holes. IE is like Swiss cheese.
blah blah blah
