Anonymous is Hurting Small Business One of the great things about a blog is the ability to share information without having to keep my feelings and opinions out of my articles like I would if this were a news site.  Today the hacker group, Anonymous, or one of its members, brought down the Web Hosting giant GoDaddy.  This attack has affected millions of websites, but more than that it’s taken down file servers, databases, and email all hosted at GoDaddy.  Anonymous is an anarchistic and highly dispersed group of users from various...

Posted by on Jul 5, 2012 in News, Security | 1 comment

Tricky Technology Terms: Mac or PC?

The second article in our series is going to try to tackle a question that started way back in the early 90’s and has even made a series of humorous commercials.

Because as the saying goes, “Where there is a will, there’s a way”. The WILL Depending on whose stats you read, which vary WILDLY (yes, “Statistics lie and liars use statistics”) depending on what they want them to say, anywhere from 10% to 75% of all PC’s have something pirated on them (music, movies, software, etc).
