Submission + - SPAM: AV Antivirus Suite is causing havoc!

KirinMercury writes: AV Antivirus Suite, having been specifically created to invade a system user’s privacy, will also attempt to compromise the user’s Internet community. AV Antivirus Suite , also known as AV Antivirus Suite, is the new fictitious anti-spyware application to be causing a storm on the net. Although there is no solid evidence to support this view, the processes these type malware programs tend to make are usually very similar. AV Antivirus Suite issues misleading and erroneous results to the end-user. AV Antivirus Suite tends to infiltrate a PC without the permission or knowledge of the system user. This is usually done via Vundo Trojan, Virus or any another phony software application. AV Antivirus Suite tends to display fictitious system alerts and phony security alerts, so as to coerce the user into purchasing the paid version of AV Antivirus Suite.

Submission + - SPAM: Alan Wake Will Leave You Afraid | GoozerNation

JudoChinX writes: Jason Trent with GoozerNation writes: "Ever since I was introduced to the Resident Evil franchise at the age of 10, I've always had a soft spot for the survival horror genre of games. I might be a little masochistic, but feeling uneasy while enjoying entertainment has appealed to me for as long as I can remember. Scary movies, games, books: I love them all. As my tastes in such material matured, I began appreciating the more psychological side of things. It wasn't enough to have things jump out at me. I wanted the characters and stories to get inside my head and stay with me. I had to be afraid even after it was over. Alan Wake caught my attention for these reasons and has been in development for what seems like an eternity. It's finally complete and it was worth the wait."

Submission + - The Bible Vs. Theoretical Physics ( 2

Velcroman1 writes: God created the universe in six days. Science says it took 15 billion years. How to reconcile those numbers? If you're Gerald Schroeder, the answer is simple: Do the math. The math, however, is not so simple. Schroeder is an MIT-schooled physicist and biblical scholar who teaches at the College of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. He's trying to reconcile the ancient writings of the Bible with science, starting at the beginning: Did God create the universe in six days, resting on the seventh? Or was it born in a fiery "big bang" billions of years ago? Schroeder says the Bible's opening chapters ARE descriptions of the big bang itself. They are, as he says, "identical realities."

Submission + - SPAM: About Toyota Camry Hybrid

An anonymous reader writes: There are many hybrid vehicles on the market today. Unfortunately due to the unique technology they don’t come cheap, developments and experiments with high powered engines made them more expensive. The perks provided by luxury cars come at a price. If being environmental friendly is this heavy on the wallet then why buy?

Submission + - You are nothing without an API - let's build one ( 1

Phil Ayres writes: You're a developer. You have an idea for a business app that flows. But you've never found the right platform to build it on. They're all so... static. This one is offering smart developers the chance to shape the API and influence the cloud service on which they build apps that need to flow. Work that moves. Activities that change. Open to ideas.

Submission + - Native Steam Client for Linux: Take 1000 ( 1

Jorl17 writes: It seems that there's even more evidence of a steam client for Linux. From Phoronix: "Valve Corporation has today rolled out their Steam Mac OS X client to the general public and confirmed something we have been reporting for two years: the Steam content delivery platform and Source Engine are coming to Linux. This news is coming days after we discovered proof.

Some enthusiasts "even managed to get the unreleased Steam Linux client running up to a partially drawn UI". I know I'll be benchmarking this client against Wine for sure.
