Guest Post: Windows 8 comes wrapped in a ribbon

September 6, 2011
If you have not heard or read that big MS, Microsoft is working hard on a new Windows OS version, well you’ve been offline for too long.
I’m personally trying to get away from the claws of MS.  At home I have forced myself to install Ubuntu on all of my machines.  To help me get used to the Linux environment and trying to force myself to learn more and more about the in and outs of the Linux OS.  I will lose some learning time from Windows, but I work in windows environment day in and day out, so I don’t think its really going to make much of a difference…

Chromebook and Netflix Join in Holy Matrimony At Last

August 9, 2011

Netflix has officially made its way to Chrome OS, so if you want to instantly stream movies to your Samsung, Acer or CR-48 Chromebook, the box office is now open. I’ve been using the Chromebook more and more as it’s such a great device for battery life, Web connectivity, and yes speed. This strikes down one more exception for people looking to make the move.

The first time you launch a video, it will prompt you to allow the site to save data to your Chromebook. After this, you will get an error regarding Incognito Windows (Error Code: NPL15794229). Simply restart and you should be good to go.

Not sure if I’m late to the party here, but I just noticed that if you go to your news feed and hit the X (sometimes only shown when you mouse-over the particular post), you will be offered the option to “Hide all posts”.

This is available for comments, wall posts, likes, and even more I’m sure.

Opinion: How Important is Mobile Security?

November 26, 2010

As of now, there are many mobile platforms available on the market. Often we look at one device over another, decide what apps we like and want and decide what to buy. Most consumers do not think about security of their phones. This is a major fail on both the part of the consumer, the salesman, and it goes all the way to the phone manufacturer(s) and carrier(s). Why may you ask?

Review: Lookout Mobile Security

November 26, 2010

Smartphones these days are slowly becoming our personal computers. They are not yet at the level that they can completely replace our existing primary PC’s but they are pretty darn close. These devices come with complete operating systems, with the ability to download apps, music, & documents, all from the internet. Now that can only mean one thing: Viruses. Yes, viruses!! These devices are, or will, become susceptible to viruses, hacker intrusions, spyware, and malware just to name a few security breaches. They will infect your mobile device just like how a PC can be infected. Without proper security, you maybe at risk…

Bad Hard Disc Drive Computer Service for Client in Danbury

August 8, 2010

This Toshiba Satellite notebook was very nice, but wouldn’t boot into windows. After running some diagnostics, we determined that the hard disc drive had failed, which was a bit of a difficult diagnosis to make because the hard drive spins and does not make any clicking noises typical of a dying drive. Diagnostics don’t lie though.

We then proceeded to hook up the hard drive to our data recovery server and were stunned to find out that the drive was not recognized – listed as an “uninitialized” disc. We also tried to hook the drive up to other computers to be sure that the issue was duplicated across various environments.

We are currently running sector-by-sector data recovery on the drive with the hopes of being able to pull an image off of it and push it back onto the laptop’s hard drive which we replaced.

This type of data recovery takes a very long time, days to a week to run through an entire hard drive, so we re-installed Windows Vista Home Premium on it and thankfully all of the drivers were conveniently available on Toshiba’s technical support site.

total bill including parts and labor (excluding pending data recovery): $160
