Hopefully you already have a security solution that provides an antidote to viruses. Leading security programs cover you against many things like files intent on causing havoc on your operating system, but that’s not the only thing that can attack your computer. You’ve probably heard the term malware but do you know what it means?
Malicious + software = Malware
People often call a virus malware but it’s important to know that that’s not really the whole truth. Viruses usually cause something obvious to go wrong like your search engine gets hijacked to a strange site or you get odd messages. Malware can be silently running in the background collecting information about what your doing and you wouldn’t know about it if you only used an anti virus program.
There is a way to protect yourself that compliments your anti virus. Malwarebytes is the leading compliment to protect you against malware.
Malware can come from many places not all of them dark corners of the internet. Sometimes it’s as easy as clicking on a link someone posted to Facebook and a program silently slips into your computer. Well written malicious programs might not even be visible to the user, invisible evil.
There’s too much in your computer to just have the basic protection. Your off to a good start if you have a good anti-virus installed. Get yourself a copy of Malware Bytes and scan your system and see what it comes up with. I’ve run it on dozens of computers and I’m always amazed at what it finds. There’s so many routes you can get an infection from.
When you have Malwarebytes your protection goes from this:
Pop into one of our stores and ask about Malwarebytes. Trust me you’ll thank me once you see what it stops in real time.

Parents have a big job these days. The internet has added a new duty to the role of raising children: teach them how-to be responsible digital citizens.
Most parents want to have control over what their kids access. You probably want to filter out material that is inappropriate for your kids age and pick when they can use certain online services like online gaming.
Linksys offers a very easy to use parental control option. It’s as easy as turning it on, setting up parental password and telling it which devices your kids use. Then you can pick what your child has accesses to (think of it like movie ratings only for web sites) and what time they can access it. If you want to make a change, like turn off the ability to play XBox online when they haven’t done their chores, it’s as easy as using an app on your smartphone or tablet.
Here’s how to set it up and what it can do right from Linksys:
After getting it’s start as a 35mm film camera, then growing up in the low resolution digital camera age the GoPro series of cameras has unleashed a new world of possibilities to everyone. Not just for professionals the GoPro line has become the rugged little camera anyone can use.
You can strap a GoPro almost anywhere and to anything.
No matter what you want to film the little rugged camera will keep ticking.
Here’s some of my favorite videos shot with GoPro:
Used to film New Zealand wildlife:
Teaching a pelican how to fly:
What a baby thinks of swinging on a… swing:
Even showing off what the inside of dishwasher looks like while running:
GoPro and a Pogo stick:
Driving a perfectly good snowmobile off a cliff to base jump:
Attached to a drone that flies in with a wedding ring when proposing:
And of course the infamous jump from the stratosphere:
These little cameras can take quite a beating but they can be destroyed (and then you need a new housing)
