First, let me say, if you haven’t heard about the HP Magic Giveaway contest yet… go look at it! HP is having 50 different bloggers around the world give away $6,000 worth of computer equipment. It is a pretty cool (and fun) contest. I have entered a few of the contests, though haven’t won yet.… Read More »
If you haven’t heard of this contest yet… get cracking! 50 different sites are giving away $6k prize packadges. (It was mentioned here on SGB before it started.) The contest is pretty cool. Three more sites are starting their contests today: Geeks to Go! Gear Diary Geeks! A few others have already started. (See the… Read More »
Researchers have discovered a new type of malware that collects passwords for banking sites but targets only Firefox. The malware, dubbed ‘Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A,’ sits in Firefox’s add-ons folder, registering itself as ‘Greasemonkey,’ the well-known collection of scripts that add functionality to Web pages rendered by Firefox.
Greetings new visitors! I have noticed a significant amount of traffic (for existing readers, think factor 10) coming in due to the “YouTube virus? Actns/Swif.T” post. A lot of people are wondering what to do about it.

There are a few other reasons, which I covered on my personal blog, that basically boils down to restructuring how I blog. In doing so I should have more frequent posting of… Read More »
What is planned? That is an interesting question. For a while there, this site kind of went stagnant… between other blogs, real life, etc… it just went by the wayside. Well one of the changes I am testing out (after moving hosts, upgrading code again, etc) is some RSS aggregation posts. IE – pulling in… Read More »
Limewire, an app that we all know and love got sued by the RIAA. So, what did they do? Well, they didn’t lay down and take it. They countersued. They claim that the RIAA goal was simple: to destroy any online music distribution service they did not own or control, or force such services to… Read More »
