Really liking this 2P site as it has a lot of interviews on upcoming games. Massively.com and 2p.com are my two favourite MMO sites at the moment.
In the grim darkness of the future, there is only war. Now it's your turn to fight it. Warhammer 40,000 is a universe in which heretics run rampant, bug like aliens torture existence, and super soldiers dominate the battlefield. Will you serve the Emperor of Mankind, or will you seek to destroy humanity? Does running across a battlefield with your Waaagh hoping your gun doesn't explode meet your fancy? Maybe you are the last of your kind, fightin...

Don't believe the "Android is not secure" hype

The vast majority of mobile malware is written for +Android. Thats a fact.  Its a side effect of the open-garden.  Anyone can write apps, even malicious ones, and distribute into the wild without the approval of a curation system.

But to the everyday user, does it matter?  I have been looking for posts, on forums and social media, about people whose mobile device have been infected and need help.  All I have found are blogs posts about Mobile malware, no personal stuff. 

Charts and statistics can be misleading and the effect is massively intensified when you only refer to percentages rather than hard numbers.

People can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. 14% of people know that. 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j2Duy_xzEAg 

In my quest for hard numbers I found this article http://bit.skyjedi.com/1nnB6pu thats estimates mobile malware infections to around "11.6 million mobile devices" and "Android devices accounted for 60% [~7million] of total mobile network infections"  I believe these numbers are world wide.  At last count Android had crossed the Billion device mark 
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+SundarPichai/posts/NeBW7AjT1QM and activates 1.5 million devices daily.
http://www.androidauthority.com/google-q2-2013-earnings-report-245664/ 

With those number and a couple of others i made a chart of estimated Activated Android Devices compared to estimated infected Android devices.  http://bit.skyjedi.com/TmFlaz The sheet with math and sources http://bit.skyjedi.com/TmGeQd

It is quite easy to avoid malware infection on Android.  In a nutshell, don't sideload apps [disabled by default] and the vast majority of people will never have to worry.  If you decide to sideload apps  
+Chris Hoffman has a nice write up on how to keep yourself safe.

Was so disappointed when I tried to whisper Coolit in game and got the error that you can't whisper the opposite faction. Friend of mine and I are thinking of rolling an alt to check out the other side as well.

Poverty hides in places you wouldn't suspect and everybody deserves a little kindness and generosity at this cold, dark time of the year.

Black Desert is really starting to look good!
I hit level 12 or so in the final Korean closed beta, and as usual, the small black spirit's notification sounded off, as for every few levels, he would hand me a kill quest or a link to the main story for me to handle. I opened his prompt, and he handed me an odd key item, a flag with a creatures face on it. I was delighted, it was the level 15 quest for one of the first boss monsters the player will face down in the caves along the ocean wall. ...

Still loving Archeage and will probably roll west faction on release with you guys. However, I am really hooked on WIldstar. During the beta I was not really feeling it but now I am having a blast.

Ive been taking my dogs to Westmount Animal Hospital for a few years now and even though I've moved further away I keep coming here. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful from the greeting and help at the front desk to the vets we've dealt with. They are always fair and considerate and during appointments we're never rushed so we can ask whatever questions we have or address any concerns we've had about our pets. When one of our dogs got very sick, they were extremely comforting through the whole process of her getting surgery and recovering and probably helped mom and dad as much as patient through that very emotional time. Fantastic vet with excellent service, excellent knowledge, and more than fair prices.

The Anytime Fitness gyms are fantastic. Being open all day every day really makes it easy to fit a busy schedule as does having access to all Anytime locations. Staff are helpful and the equipment is fantastic.
