I have tried Mozy and Carbonite extensively and found both to be quite unreliable compared to Backblaze. They are all about the same price, but I have had no issues with the latter after about 8 months, and had several issues with the previous two within a 3 month period when I tried them out. » 12/21/10 3:11pm 12/21/10 3:11pm

Everyone seems to be missing the point of this video, it's showing that with the lens you have control over the depth of field, something shot without it would all be in focus.

Malware covers a whole host of things, not just harmful apps etc. Anti-malware apps also help protect you from phishing links and hazardous websites which may link to other spoof sites and so on, so regardless of your OS security, it can't protect you from your own stupidity if you fall foul of scams. » 12/03/08 9:23am 12/03/08 9:23am

@RabbitRun: I use TrueCrypt to fully encrypt my system anyway, so this is of no concern. It's very easy to do, although depending on the speed of your system and size of storage, it can take a while, but it does let you stop, and carry on the initial encryption process so you don't have to leave your system on for… » 11/04/08 6:00am 11/04/08 6:00am
