Are You Protected With More Security Software?

Today, every computer on the web should be running some sort of anti-virus (AV) software. Some people have gone through the trouble of installing one AV engine after another to protect themselves. While it may sound like a good idea that more engines equal more security, this is not true!

Yes, if companies do not invest in updating their infrastructures. Thanks to the demand for speed and websites like YouTube, Internet traffic is growing rapidly.

That is more than double what is currently being spent.

In October, Google gained another 1.5% of the search engine market. This brings Google’s overall share to 58.5%. This increase came at the expense of Yahoo’s and Microsoft’s shares of the market.

In an effort to catch up with Nintendo Wii, Sony has unveiled a cheaper version of its Sony PS3. As a result, Sony’s sales have nearly doubled. Nevertheless, they still have a long way to go if they wish to catch up with Nintendo.

France Toughening Up On Online Pirating:

Are you thinking of pirating copyright material online in France?

This is both illegal and not a good idea anywhere – especially in France. That country will be boldly fighting piracy on the web. With new legislation, people who continue pirating copyrighted material can have their web access withdrawn.
