Christmas Could Never Get Started Today

This time of year is a favorite for children of all ages – I happen to be one of these kids – in part because of the television programs that are shown around Christmas. A Charlie Brown Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, have been favorites of mine since TV went from exclusively black and white to poor quality color. This is no coincidence as these programs were made in the mid 1960’s. As I was watching this year, it occurred to me that if at this time in history Christmas had not yet been established, if somehow Christmas needed to be “started” in 2009, it wouldn’t stand a chance. Christmas would be doomed before it ever got started. First of all, the only time you can say Jesus Christ anymore is when you hit your thumb with a hammer. You can’t mention Him at City Hall, you can’t display a crè... (more)

Microsoft: 76% of pirates trying to get free software end up with malware infecting their PCs

Malware Microsoft this week announced the release the 13th volume of its bi-annual Security Intelligence Report (SIRv13). The 146-page document looks at malware (and general security) trends for the first half of 2012. One of the biggest shifts, according to Microsoft, has been the growth of key generators and its link with the spread of malware. The software giant found that Win32/Keygen, which represents key generators, was the most commonly reported threat family between January 2012 and June 2012. It was detected by Redmond nearly 5 million times, and so the software giant is warning pirates to avoid them. Read the full story at The Next Web. ... (more)

ThinkFlood Adds Control via Internet Protocol to RedEye Line

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/24/12 -- ThinkFlood, maker of award-winning RedEye universal remote control systems, today announced that it is adding Internet Protocol (IP) control to its list of interface options on both the RedEye and RedEye Pro products. IP control comes by way of a free software update to existing and new RedEye customers. The vast majority of universal remote control solutions operate using infrared signals, a technology first adopted commercially in the 1970s. Infrared is inexpensive and common to most home entertainment appliances, so it is a natural choice for universal control. But infrared control is typically unidirectional and lacks the ability to transmit anything more than a few dozen commands by simple button press. Installation professionals in commercial and high-end residential markets have long relied upon other technologies, ... (more)
