If you are going to switch from an iPhone to a non-Apple phone, make sure you disable iMessage on the iPhone BEFORE making the move. It is a known issue that if you don't, messages sent from iPhones users to your new, non-Apple phone will not arrive.

The slow death of the "phone subsidy + 2 year contract" business model in the cellular industry is bringing much more transparency to what smartphones really cost.…/

To paraphrase Mark Twain: There are lies, damned lies, and smartphone prices. Every review I've read of the new iPhone 6 this week says the price starts at $199. That's not true. The total prices that buyers pay for smartphones on two-year contracts from American carriers will shock you.

Unless you have program that you must use that requires Java (and most people don't), I would suggest uninstalling it. It's simply too big of a security vulnerability to have on your computer unless you have some specific need for it.…/nasty-new-java-zero-day-found-explo…

Several prominent exploit kits such as Blackhole, Cool and Nuclear Pack are pushing an exploit for a new Java browser plug-in zero-day vulnerability. The exploit is able to bypass security restrictions in the plug in and enable attackers to remotely execute code.

This kind of thing is why a tell people that want an Android device to only buy ones that have been "blessed" by Google, like the Nexus line of phones. Smartphones are differentiated much more by their software than any hardware differences, so getting timely updates is a huge advantage. On the other hand, getting updates nearly 18 months after they are released is a spit in the face from the manufacturer.

The Motorola Cliq 2 has finally received an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, nearly 18 months after its launch at CES 2011. Motorola and T-Mobile USA announced the news in a post on the...

For those Mac users out there that bought into Apple's "Macs don't get malware" hype and aren't running any antimalware software, it may be time to start. The latest Mac malware is making the rounds and can be installed with no interaction from the user. The two best free antimalware options available for Mac currently are Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition and ClamXav.

Half a million Macs are infected by a botnet, and all I can think of is this sentence from a 2006 ad: “PCs are not Macs.”

The best advice is to simply not click on any links in any emails. Instead open a browser and manually go to the desired website to login to your account. Too many people are getting bitten by fake, but very real looking, emails with bogus links.…/new-wave-of-phishing-attacks-se…/4648

This is a good video explaining why malware has become so advanced and the best way to fight it in the future.

TED Talks It's been 25 years since the first PC virus (Brain A) hit the net, and what was once an annoyance has become a sophisticated tool for crime and espionage. Computer security expert Mikko Hyppönen tells us how we can stop these new viruses from threatening the internet as we know it.

Apple has spent a lot of time and money trying to convince people Macs can't get malware, but that simply isn't true. Yes, malware on Macs is less prevalent and currently easier to remove, but that will change as the market share of Mac computers rises. It's always best to keep safety foremost in you mind when you are using a computer on the Internet, whether it's a Mac or a PC.

Not only Windows users are a target of bad guys that want to distribute rogueware. Now they are also attacking Mac users using the same and old blackhat SEO techniques, poisoning search results in popular search engines.
