Malwarebytes Antivirus

If your looking for a great security program look no further. Malwarebytes can take down some of the worst viruses around.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free sweeps away malware infections but does not include Realtime Proactive Protection.

Think of it like a malware-destroying broom - you can use it to clean your computer, but your computer won't clean itself (just like Mom used to say).

17" Dell Monitor I fixed

Here's a circuit board for a monitor that I fixed.  Took some soldering work but in the end it was well worth my troubles.

Dlink 825 Unboxing

This is my first ever unboxing video. 

Specs(from dlink site):


It's like two routers in one. This Xtreme N® router operates on dual band Wi-Fi signals, making it easy to stream HD content while browsing the Internet without bogging down your network.

The D-Link® Xtreme N™ Dual Band Gigabit Router (DIR-825) uses dual band technology to support 2.4GHz & 5GHz wireless signals at the same time. This allows you to check e-mail and browse the Internet using the 2.4GHz band while simultaneously streaming High-Definition (HD) movies and other media on the 5GHz band. The DIR-825 is designed for users looking to get a true HD wireless connection that can handle multiple HD video streams throughout the house, while being backward compatible with existing 802.11g and 802.11a products.

This router works like a charm for me still and I've had it over a year.

Portal 2 (trailer)

Here's another Portal 2 post.(yes I like it that much)
There have been many complaints about the length of Portal 2 but the single-player game can take six to 10 hours to play, and the co-op campaign is at least five hours long. Which I think isn't very long at all. I beat the co-op version in less than 2 days of off and on playing and I thought it was too short.
The co-op mode is really worth a shot. It utilizes many skills needed such as vortexs, and walls that both players use to complete the level together.

Portal 2 was great!

I just finished beating Portal 2 and it is such a great game.
Coop was interesting and cool because if one of you couldn't figure out the solution to the map the other one might be able to. Great use of teamwork.
I'm not going to have any spoilers in here but the ending was a bit disappointing. I guess I was looking for something like the first Portal game where you destroy the main robot but this one ended alot differently and abruptly.

Over all I give the game 9/10 worth your money

Merge: iPhone 5 looms as Sprint claims AT&T+T-Mobile=bad, Verizon stews

Even as the iPhone 5 appears it may arrive in the fall after all, Sprint is calling out AT&T for its attempted takeover of T-Mobile. And regardless of ones position on the appropriateness of said merger, Sprint’s attempt to turn public (and perhaps regulatory) tide against the idea means that the carrier doesn’t like the idea of two of its three rivals joining forces one bit. And that’s not a surprise, as an AT&T-T-Mobile merger would instantly make Sprint the nation’s smallest major carrier, and – presumably – the only one not on board for the iPhone 5. Meanwhile Verizon has yet to say a word about the merger as it weighs its options.

If talk of an impending white iPhone 4 is accurate, we won’t see the iPhone 5 this June after all. And regardless of the reason for that development, it would actually give the involved parties more time to figure out how to work together. Sprint likely wants, and perhaps at this point needs, the iPhone 5 in order to remain competitive. But Sprint has doubled down so thoroughly on marrying itself to its version of 4G that it would be difficult for the carrier to pick up the iPhone 5 if it’s not a 4G device (in contrast, while Verizon has begun publicly marrying itself to 4G LTE, it’s largely for show thus far as Verizon’s 4G network still barely exists anywhere). AT&T is so far behind on 4G that it won’t much care whether the iPhone 5 is 4G or not, and while T-Mobile has also married itself to a flavor of 4G, it’ll end up taking the iPhone 5 if new parent company AT&T arranges for it. So not only is Sprint set to be the only U.S. carrier without an iPhone deal, it might be the only carrier which can’t save face with or without the iPhone 5.

Read the rest here.

Honestly whoever waited to get the iPhone white should seriously hold off until the iPhone 5

Enterprise Mobility: Apple Should Release the iPhone 5 in 2012: 10 Reasons Why

Each year at the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple takes the opportunity to talk about its next iPhone. And in June, another WWDC will be held in San Francisco. So far, Apple has only said that it plans to discuss Mac OS X "Lion" and the future of its iOS platform. Other than that, talk that the iPhone 5 will come up is only speculation. Exactly what Steve Jobs and Company have planned right now is unknown. Chances are that the iPhone 5 will be put on display, given its history. But for the rest of the year, it would be best if Apple didn’t unveil the iPhone 5. The smarter move for the company would be to focus its efforts elsewhere this year and release the iPhone 5 in 2012. Not only would it help its operation, but also it would simply make more sense. This eWEEK slide show presents the reasons Apple should break with tradition and release the iPhone 5 in 2012, rather than 2011. It might not be the popular move, but rest assured that it would be the smart move

I'm so excited for the iPhone 5. I'm mad that it isn't going to be released this summer though.. What are your thoughts?

Is "unauthorized" tethering illegal?

"Unauthorized" tethering remains a popular, albeit controversial practice in the United States. 

While several mobile phone carriers clearly consider "unauthorized" tethering illegal in their Terms of Service (TOS), many users beg to differ.
Is "unauthorized" tethering illegal?Tethering (also known as mobile hotspot service) is the use of a mobile phone to indirectly connect another device - such as a tablet or laptop - to the Internet. 

The connection between the phone and the connected device may be achieved via a USB cable, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Multiple devices can also be connected to the Internet using the same phone.
