Win 10 has a lot of new features, it’s a big improvement on the, frankly, awful, Windows 8 – it’s like a sleaker, swisher version of Windows 7. Can’t be bad.
Let’s have a word about Internet Explorer before it dies shall we: if you can remember as far back as Windows 95 which saw the launch of a free web browser called “Internet Explorer”. Previously, you had to buy a browser (generally this was the market leader at the time, Netscape Navigator, which eventually morphed into Mozilla Firefox). Surely this one simple fact pushed web browsing and internet use into the mainstream and made it accessible to anyone who had a computer. In hindsight, it was a catalyst which Microsoft and poor old Internet Explorer deserve full credit for. So, goodbye IE and hello Edge. Is it the King is Dead, Long Live the King. Well maybe not, but Edge is a HUGE improvement on it’s predecessor: http://buff.ly/1Ox2LjF #Win10 #tech
Android flaw that lets hackers into your phone with a simple text message?
That sounds like really scary stuff. Now malware can be delivered right to your digital doorstep—and there isn’t much you can do about it. Is “personal vigilance” really the best way to keep you and your data safe in the modern world? Surely we can do better than that? At the moment, I’d avoid using Google’s Hangouts until it’s properly patched. http://buff.ly/1LPvFhq #Android #infosec #tech
Who’s this handsome brute?!!
Thanks to @dawnrosie for my new super cool portrait pic. I’m not the most photogenic person in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but Dawn seems to have caught me in a one-off half-way decent moment – like only a proper professional photographer can: http://buff.ly/1CYLvDc #Medway #Rochester
