Windows 10 Upgrade shares your WiFi info automatically. As a precaution, perform the following:

1) Prior to upgrade to Windows 10, change your Wi-Fi network name/SSID to something that includes the terms “_nomap_optout”.
2) After the upgrade is complete, change the privacy settings in Windows to disable Wi-Fi Sense sharing.
3) If you haven’t already done so, consider additional steps to harden the security of your Wi-Fi network.
Starting today, Microsoft is offering most Windows 7 and Windows 8 users a free upgrade to the software giant's latest operating system — Windows 10. But there's a very important security caveat that users should know about before transitioning to the new OS: Unless you opt out, Windows 10 will ...

If you're currently using Google Hangouts as your default SMS app, you might want to install +TextSecure and switch your default before 8/1 as it appears that Hangouts is highly vulnerable to this exploit. I assume the Hangouts team will update the app soon (may have already), but without any official word from Google, we have to assume the worse.

No, SnapChat is not secure or private, and BBM is no better. 
Which apps and tools actually keep your messages safe? In the face of widespread Internet surveillance, we need a secure and practical means of talking to each other from our phones and computers. Many companies offer “secure messaging” products—but are these systems actually secure? We decided to find out, in the first phase of a new EFF Campaign for Secure & Usable Crypto. This scorecard represents only the first phase of the campaign. In later...

This is really bad. So far, only Nexus 6 devices have any chance of being patched anytime soon.

The Windows 10 Logo is actually an electronic club song. Crank it up and jam while you get ready.

Makes sense to me.
 
We're excited to keep making Google+ an even better place for people to engage around their shared interests, with the content and people who inspire them.  At the same time, we'll be making some changes across Google so people who don't use Google+ don't need a public profile to use other Google products.  You can read more on the Google Blog here: http://goo.gl/08a5cF

Could it be the beginning of phasing out G+ and shutting it down?

I joined the Spartanburg Planet Fitness with the $20/mo. membership ($1 sign up fee) on a 1-year commitment, and have been overall very pleased with my decision. The atmosphere is very casual, almost like an exercise "bar" with a row of TVs in the middle to enjoy while using the treadmill or eliptical machines. There are stations for abs, legs/back, and full body as well as free weights (all self-contained with safety guards and self-spotting locks) and resistance machines for every muscle group. [PARENTS BEWARE:] The General Manager, Lisa, is very difficult to work with, and not very accommodating if you need to bring a child to the gym with you. They don't allow anyone under 13 w/o adult supervision and no one but the black card member can sit in the sofa area. They're open 24/7 with a trainer available 8am-6pm. The $20/mo. membership includes access to the massage and tanning area with both chair and water massage as well as multiple tanning booths and a Beauty Angel booth for skin tone and relaxation. With all of these services at only $20/mo. ($10/mo. membership available as well w/o guest or massage/tanning privileges), there really is no excuse not to join a gym. I absolutely love it and am planning to go at least 3 times/week.

The Ale House has good food and a great selection of local and regional craft beers. John, the owner, is an exceptionally nice guy and genuinely cares about his patrons. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is a mix of artsy, sports bar and night club all in one to provide something for everyone. They have live bands or DJ's most weekend nights with ping pong, tables and corn hole in the outside area which make for a lively nightlife. Definitely a top three food and drink destination in Black Mtn.

Excellent Thai cuisine but a bit pricey. The Thai Red Curry is very good though the number 5 isn't hot enough. The tofu soup is bland and the salads are small but the ginger sauce is very fresh. Lunch price is from $8-11 per plate.

Frisbee golf course, hiking trails, three soccer/football fields, four tennis courts, and a large playground make this the premier park in Spartanburg county. If it had a basketball court it would be perfect!

Easily the best bakery in Black Mountain. Their cakes, pastries, and breads are all excellent. The biscuits are the size of a small plate and amazing! Be sure to try the biscuit with shitake mushroom gravy.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Parking is limited, but we were seated right away at lunch time. The gyros is excellent. The mushrooms and hummus appetizers were wonderful. Or waiter was fast and extremely pleasant. Limited beer selection with no local beers.
