I have so many I use a master password list written in a simple text document that is in two places. My main machine and a flash drive both protected by Truecrypt. The flash drive actually has a small binary on it so the computer I use it on does not have to have Truecrypt installed on it for me to use it. It supports Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. http://www.truecrypt.org/
It does not matter what kind of hardware or software you have or use without knowing what the best security practices are you will be vulnerable. People just want something easy to use. A good example is UPnP. used improperly it can open up the network to all kinds of vulnerabilities but people are willing to sacrifice their security because they don't want to take the time to learn about proper port forwarding. So the problem will continue until people take security seriously. Having said that their is nothing wrong with OpenWRT, DD-WRT, or Tomato firmwares but without knowing how to set them up securely it's still a huge problem. Lack of and misunderstanding of information does not help either alot of these communities associated with these firmwares have very poor documentation.
Put Slim Pickens on it and make sure he shouts Yeeeeeehaaaaaaaaawww! Each time it is fired.
I stopped trusting Seagate after they bought and rebranded Conner. I have to say the numbers reported in the article make the whole thing wildly inaccurate. "There are over 12,000 drives each from Seagate and Hitachi, and close to 3,000 from Western Digital". Of course WD is going to fail less with numbers like that. Personally I use and Trust WD but I base it off my own experiences not a report like this.
I use a very customized m0n0wall running on some older hardware I had laying around. Multiple VPN connections and the biggest factor of all I am not on Facebook blabbing about the mondane details of my everyday life.
This is what annoyed me about the Samsung Galaxy S4 all the cool features only seem to work with their crapware like the Air View in browser (very original name Samsung) but not in Dolphin. I am so glad I root my phones and run custom roms and kernels on them. If a company had a my phone my way plan I would so be a customer.
I have had two over the last twenty years. Still going strong and working great. http://www.ricoh-usa.com/products/models_listing.aspx?cid=25
I could not have said it better myself.
Well I read Slashdot and I shop alot at Geeks so I guess a little of both.
I consider myself a very organized person but my wife will tell you I have OCD.
I have no idea I have been trying for a couple of decades but if you find the answer let me know.
This has nothing to do with video games. The kid was mentally unstable and his mother trained him in the use of firearms. If that is not a recipie for disaster I don't know what is so stop blaming video games. Maybe not teaching a mentally challenged individual how to use firearms is the message to take away from this tradegy.
One other thing to consider is customer service. I switched to Sprint from Verizon and love it. No dropped calls for me and customer service is top notch. Got their home phone service for $20 bucks a month to keep from going over minites cause alot of my family still have landlines. Mobile to mobile is free night and weekends. (7PM) are free. I truely have unlimited data even if I am roaming. So I highly recommend Sprint.
This is why I stick with openSUSE.
Avast! and Malwarebytes or use one of the many Linux flavors out there. I myself use openSUSE Linux.
