The constant updates can be frustrating, but it is very important to keep your software up-to-date.  "Attack vectors" are found within software daily, and the software companies try to plug the holes as quickly as possible.  Keeping up with updates for your operating system and software help you fix the vulnerability before the bad guys can exploit the now publicized hole.

As we said in the post about viruses, if you aren't expecting an email from someone, don't open it. It is much easier than you may think to send an email and make it look like it came from someone else. Always be wary of attachments and links in emails and other communication. Don't open attachments, and it is best to type in a web address yourself rather than clicking a link. You can hover over a link to see where it will actually take you. They may be phishing. For example, if you click a link that says www.google.com, it may actually take you to Yahoo. Misdirection is as easy as that.

Windows 8 is the biggest change since Windows 95 introduced the Desktop. Change can be frustrating, but once you get to know how things work with "Charms", "Hot Corners", and your "Start Screen", you'll be well on the way to feeling more comfortable.  And the improvements in the Task Manager, Windows Defender, and a unified touch interface may eventually win you over. Give us a call if you'd like a training session!

Backups are definitely your first line of defense, but we all would like to not have to use them. Malware comes in all shapes and sizes, and this is the biggest cause for problems. No virus scanner will give you 100% protection, so it is up to you to know what is going on with your computer. If you aren't expecting an attachment from someone, don't open it. And stay away from disreputable websites.

Rule Number One - Anything can be worked through and fixed if you have the proper backups. Backup, backup, backup. Not all companies have the same backup needs, but all companies need backup. Give us a call and we can figure out the best solutions for you.

I'm looking for an Android version of the iPod Touch.  My son loves his 7" Samsung Tab 2, but he wants something that can easily fit in his pocket.  Is there a better option <$200 than the Moto G?  Even though it doesn't do 4G, I feel like it is a waste of money for the cellular radio.

Am I the only person around that thinks Microsoft has it right combining the tablet and desktop interface?  I really think that these device categories are merging, but one interface is good when I'm carrying it around, and one is good when I'm sitting at a desk working.  Yes, Windows 8 is a v1 product, and it needs some work, but I think it's the right direction.

Friggin +Verizon Wireless  I got duped into thinking you might actually bring a nice selection of phones. No HTC One today.

Aaannnddd... I just finished.  The Wheel of Time is over. That sits very odd with me.

Are there any Verizon phones in the foreseeable future that have cameras that rival the Lumia 920, etc?
