One of the obvious problems with DNS hijacking is that any website can now be stood up in place of the legitimate one, you simply point the records to a new fraudulent site.

Something tells me this will be a very popular post. With all the recent discussions about the junkware literally infecting new computers it looks like Microsoft is stepping up their game to help Windows 7 users be able to install a clean version of the popular operating system.

This week's featured app is another universal app that is on both Windows and Windows Phone and for me is the center of all the sharing of links and news that I do each day. In July 2013, when Google shut down their Google Reader service, I decided to move all of my RSS feeds over to one of the ...

Two weekends ago I decided to try out the XDA method of installing Windows 10 on my Nokia Lumia 1520 to see Windows 10 on my unsupported handset. It took me several cycles of trying the hack and included resetting my 1520 to factory defaults a few times. The hack became so popular that Microsoft ...
