What Is Ransomware and How to Avoid It


We’re hearing more and more, online and via word of mouth, that Ransomware, the practice of holding your infected PC hostage until a fee is paid, is increasing to epidemic proportions. Below is a link to a New York Times article describing the practice and steps you can take to insure you don’t fall victim.

From the article: “Researchers say criminals now use victims’ Internet addresses to customize ransom notes in their native tongue. Instead of pornographic images, criminals flash messages from local law enforcement agencies accusing them of visiting illegal pornography, gambling or piracy sites and demand they pay a fine to unlock their computer.”

Please read this and advise any friend or family member that may be vulnerable.

Ski Safari – The Best Mobile Game of 2012


Free for a limited time but well worth the usual .99, Ski Safari is one of those games that just grabs your attention, much like last year’s Jetpack Joyride. Ski down four different mountains, jumping, grinding, surfing through hills, tunnels and clouds. Ride a snow machine, a penguin or even a Yeti. This game is very highly rated in our home but more importantly, world-wide.
