Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Miscellany

A few items of interest..

* Google Launches Marketing Campaign on Security and Privacy

Google has launched a multi-million dollar ad blitz
promoting online privacy and security.

(Irony is alive and well…)

* Kaspersky Named Product of the Year

Independent security product tester AV-Comparatives.org
reports named Kasperksy the product of 2011.

* Review: Comodo Cleaning Essentials

Can’t install your full-scale antivirus because active
malware prevents it? The free and portable Comodo Cleaning
Essentials doesn’t need installation. It won’t sweep away
all the inactive malware traces, but it does a good job of
eliminating the processes that fight installation of
security software.

* PCMag Names the Best Antivirus Apps

Who’s the best of the best, and how’d we come up with it?

In case you missed it.. I am asking readers for their opinion:

    • Gaia,
      Beyond the wisdom expressed in the quotable quote “There’s Lies. There’s Damn Lies. And then there’s statistics”, I should caution folks that my survey (and it’s results) are most unscientific, and has had far too few respondents to mean a thing.

      All I know for certain is (at least.. I think I know for certain.. maybe.. possibly) that if someone you care about is an “Internet addict” and it is affecting and impacting your relationship with them.. well, that is a sad and unhappy thing.. and I don’t think it can be easily ignored.
      Life in modern times is not easy.. and I think people are too quick to lay blame and point fingers.. but a problem is a problem no matter what name it is given.

      • Yes… there’s “a big picture of this subject”… the “pros and cons”… and I think both are covered well by all.

    • A good read, Gaia, thank you.

      Just one blurb I like:
      The end result is that home users are loosing track of time and spending countless hours mastering and playing around with a technology that accomplishes nothing and generate no income. They end up getting behind on work, chores, child care and spending time with real people.
