12 Jul Windows XP Bids us Farewell

Its been around forever or so it feels. Microsoft XP debuted in August of 2001. Now almost 13 years later, Microsoft is pulling the pin on its most prolific operating system of all time. As of April 9th, 2014, Microsoft will no longer be supporting Windows XP. What does that mean not supported? As of that date, Microsoft will no longer be creating security patches for XP. So IF someone were to find an exploit in XP after that date that takes advantage of some poorly written code, Microsoft would not create a patch to cover up that hole. Meaning that security wise, you may be vulnerable after April 9th, 2014 if you continue to run Windows XP.

12 Oct Planned Retirement of your PCs

Your computer is 5 years old.. The warranty is expired. You're sitting on the fence wondering if you should replace it. It's still working, but Windows 7 is now out and Windows 8 is just around the corner. Heck, you could buy a fancy Ultrabook like the Asus Zen prime, the rage of the Anti-Mac movement, but maybe you should reallocate those funds to something more pressing like that trip to French Guyana where your old laptop could retire in style?

02 Oct Why your laptop needs to be encrypted

Imagine your laptop in the backseat of your car. You put it there because the car trunk was full of old computers destined for the e-cycler. You forget about the laptop as you park your car and head into the supermarket near your house. It's late and it's dark outside, but you're just in time because they're closing in 15 minutes and you just need to get some fruit and veggies for tomorrow's superlative double egg omelet. As you round the produce section with an armload of goodies, something on the guy's T-shirt in front of you, jogs a memory. Mustard. Over the word "Intel." Make chips. Not to eat. For laptops.

12 Aug Identity Theft and Cybercrime Part 2

A True Story - part 2 A couple of months ago, Winnipeg was home to it's semi-annual "Giveaway Weekend." A brainchild of someone in our municipal offices, its been touted as a way of keeping stuff out of our landfill and in someone else's garage. I was driving home that weekend, and spotted a computer by the side of the road. I drove by it, thinking to myself, "What are the chances, that the people left the hard drive inside?" Curiosity got the better of me, as I slammed on the brakes, reversed, parked the car and scooped up the PC. I got it home, cracked the case and sure enough, there for my data recovery pleasure, was the hard drive.

12 Apr Identity Theft and Bouncing Laptops

A true story... A few weeks ago, as I was picking up my children from my wife's parents home, my father- in-law said, "Wait a sec, I have something for you". He went away for a moment and came back with a small Gateway netbook computer. He told me that he'd been driving down the street and spotted it (get this) on the STEET! He stopped, picked it up and drove home.
