The original iteration of the Flashback Trojan was a nasty little bugger, quietly shipping your Mac's details off to a remote server. This newly discovered variant is even worse.
The great thing about the iPhone and iPad? It's just so damn fun to use. You pick it up, swipe and enjoy. The bad thing about the iPhone and iPad? Everyone wants to pick up your iDevice, swipe and enjoy too. AND THERE COULD BE SECRET PICS IN THERE. Protect yourself with My Secret Folder.
Argh! Curse the tops of laptops everywhere for being so useless. And bless the DrawTop for transforming that useless metallic canvas into a highly functional whiteboard. The possibilities, as they say, are endless.
Is it just me or have Captchas gotten insanely freaking impossible these days? I mean, I can't even make out if I'm supposed to type in a letter, a number or a hieroglyphic. Annoying! We need a new Captcha method. What about drawing a shape?
The iPhone 4S's Siri is sassy and she's everybody's new favorite toy, but it turns out she's leaving the door open for strangers to access of information on your phone even when it's locked. Siri! How could you?
Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of a 1,000-year-old Viking in Scotland, along with his boat, ax, sword and lots of other nifty Viking stuff.
With all the hubbub over iOS 5, iCloud, and the iPhone last week, a pretty big change to OS X (for power-using nerds like me) slipped by unnoticed: You can now rearrange Spaces and Full Screen apps from Mission Control.
Searching within Windows, much like tackling the Task Manager, has always one of the most nightmarish components. It was ugly, disorganized, and slow. Not anymore. Part of Microsoft's "now Windows is actually pretty great" initiative means making search un-horrible. Finally.
We love AirPlay. Audyssey's consistently put out some really solid compact speakers. But the former was frustratingly absent from the latter. Not anymore! The LES dock sounds as great as we'd expect, with the (overdue) bonus of AirPlay wireless.
It may not be the best performing mouse if you're looking to frag all night, but the Logitech M525 does have one big thing going for it: longevity. Pop in two AA batteries, and you're set for years.
Your eyes...feel funny. They're slowly pulling from their sockets, a pair of grapes that will soon squish their juices against a simple, 2D photograph. This is the power of leading lines. For this week's Shooting Challenge, use it wisely.
I've never been to Iceland. Had never planned to visit, really, until I saw this stunning time-lapse of the land of the midnight sun. Now I'm dreaming of having my morning coffee on sun-kissed ice block this side of nowhere.
This week's other phone -- no, not the Galaxy Nexus, the other phone -- will allow updates to Ice Cream Sandwich from next year, according to Motorola. For all the ICS trufax your body can contain, jump over here for more. [TechRadar]
Ice Cream Sandwich's here! Ice Cream Sandwich's here! And in the world of Android, that can only mean one thing (besides a bunch of nerds whining about not having their update yet): Oh god I need to know what's next.
