Google Page Speed Service

July 29th, 2011 Comments off

Check out a new service is offering. Google Page Speed Service

Sounded pretty cool until I got the part about “fetches content from your servers, rewrites your pages… and serves them to end users via Google’s servers”. How should we feel about that?!

Will Microsoft Mango be any better?

July 27th, 2011 Comments off

Will this version be any better? There seemed to be a big deal made out of Windows Mobile 7, or whatever it’s called, but I don’t see that it’s made up much ground on the iPhone or Android. I had a Windows phone for about 6 months a while ago and finally had enough and managed to swap for a BlackBerry, which was great at the time! Can they ever really catch up with either of the big two with hardly any apps to actually use on whatever they do with a new Windows Phone?

iPad Facebook app?

July 25th, 2011 Comments off

I guess I had forgotten that Facebook didn’t actually have a real app for the iPad. I have been using Friendly for Facebook for so long I guess I didn’t care anymore! I just ran across this article at TechCrunch and it looks like they may be about to come out with a real app from Facebook.

Intel’s recent purchases

July 22nd, 2011 Comments off

Very interesting theory regarding Intel’s recent purchases of McAfee, Infineon Technologies, and Fulcrum. Could something like this be a security game changer in everything from VMs to Cell phones?

Anonymous Hacks NATO

July 21st, 2011 Comments off

What do you think about Anonymous or what they are doing? I can’t say I agree that it’s right to break into servers and do what you want but I do agree that information should be released. It’s not like a lot of this information doesn’t pertain to us when it’s related to stupid things our government does and with our money.

OS X 10.7 Lion is Going Cloud Only

July 20th, 2011 2 comments

I guess more and more will be going this way but I don’t know about the whole OS. What do you think of Lion only being able to be installed by downloading a 3.5GB installer file and not having media for when your hard drive completely dies. I’m sure there are ways to create a DVD or USB but how many people will actually do that except for people like the ones that actually use a Mac! I know I’d like to have one but have never had a good enough reason to come up with the price difference.

Stop Slouching

July 20th, 2011 Comments off

I’ve never heard some of this but it’s an interesting article if you sit at a desk most of the day like I do. Quote from the article, “Every inch you hold your head forward, you add 10 pounds of pressure on your spine.” That’s pretty amazing to me and would certainly explain the back pain! Worth reading the whole article.

July 19th, 2011 Comments off

This is a good sign but still not enough for me to stop using Chrome or even using Firefox next.

Internet Explorer 9 security surpasses rivals in blocking social engineering attacks.

Hunting Anonymous

July 19th, 2011 Comments off

I can’t say I’m on the hackers side but this has been funny for a long time. Anonymous is interesting to follow in my opinion and for some reason, I don’t think they will ever catch enough of this group or the right people in this group to really hurt them. What do you think?
