2010 Free Antivirus Buyers Guide

2010 Free Antivirus Buyers Guide

BY: Charles P. Jefferies, Contributor
PUBLISHED: 12/15/2009

By Charles P. Jefferies
Over the last several months Notebook Review looked at several free antivirus solutions -- today we compile our results in our 2010 free antivirus buyers guide and declare a winner. Read on to see which one is most worthy of your bandwidth.
Antivirus Software Solutions
The following antivirus products are participating in this review; all are available free of charge:
  • AVG 9.0 Antivirus Free
  • Avira Home Edition
  • Avast! Free Antivirus
  • Microsoft Security Essentials
How We Test
The antivirus solutions will be objectively and subjectively rated over four categories:
  • Protection
  • Ease of use
  • Performance
  • Extra features
Antivirus solutions will be given a rating for each category; higher numbers are better.
Section One: Protection
This section focuses on two components: pro-activeness and update frequency. Pro activeness is rated on how fast the application detected viruses and on how frequently and quickly the software updated itself.
Pro Activeness (0-12)
Update Frequency (0-2)
AVG 9.0
Microsoft SE
Pro Activeness: Avast was significantly more proactive than the other suites, detecting and blocking all four of our test virus files before the download actually started. AVG and Avira both blocked one during download but only discovered the others after performing a system scan. Microsoft SE allowed all four to download but immediately neutralized them afterward -- scanning for them was not necessary.
Update Frequency: While all the antivirus solutions allow for manual updating, 99% of people will not do this. The free solutions we tested updated automatically only once per day. This is one area where free antivirus suites fall behind paid solutions, which update many times a day (sometimes several times per hour). Avira lost one point in this category since its updates took an unusually long time.
Section Two: Ease of Use
There are three categories in this section: Interface, simplicity, and free drawbacks; all are equally weighted. The interface rating is based on the presentation -- how well the interface is laid out and how easy is navigation. Simplicity is based on the relevance of terminology and items presented in the interface. Lastly, the free drawbacks rating is based on the inconvenience of using free antivirus, if any -- many have catches since they are free; higher points means there are less drawbacks.
Interface (0-4)
Simplicity (0-4)
Free Drawbacks (0-4)
AVG 9.0
Microsoft SE
Interface and Simplicity: Microsoft SE has the best-looking interface of the bunch; essential information is clearly presented and labeled. Avast has an entirely icon-driven interface which has a learning curve but is simple to use afterward. Avira gets low marks for both simplicity and interface; it looks like something from 1998 and has puzzling terminology. AVG had a clear interface though presented more information than was necessary.
Free Drawbacks: Scores in this section varied. Microsoft received the best score in this category since its only ‘free' catch is that it requires the user to validate their copy of Windows and participate in Microsoft's information collecting SpyNet service. AVG follows closely, only receiving two points off since it tries to upsell to the paid version but does so in an indirect fashion (drop-down below the interface). Avast gets low marks since registration is required. Avira no points since it has a very annoying ‘nag' pop-up screen that tries to sell the full version; we found this to be very inconvenient.
Section Three: Performance and Efficiency
Antivirus software historically has been detrimental to performance. This category rates on two sections: Overall performance impact and scan time.
Performance Impact (0-2)
Scan Time (0-2)
Cumulative Total
AVG 9.0
Microsoft SE
Performance Impact: All of the solutions had essentially no impact on overall performance, which is very impressive and all received full scores.
Scan Time: Microsoft SE was the only true laggard coming in over one hour; AVG bested them all at 23 minutes while Avast and Avira came in at 34 and 45 minutes respectively.
Section Four: Extra Features
It is expected that free antivirus products only provide the bare essentials. The extra features category rewards an additional point to solutions that went the extra mile.
Extra Features (0-1)
AVG 9.0
Microsoft SE
We felt it fitting to give extra points to AVG and Avast since they went beyond what is normally expected. AVG provides free identity theft protection, and Avast provides a basic light firewall and a virus recovery database to keep files safe.
Ease of Use
Extra Features
AVG 9.0
Microsoft SE
2010 Free Antivirus Buyers Guide Avast LogoAnd the winner is . . . Avast Free Antivirus! Avast took our top spot for several reasons. First and foremost it provides the best protection and additionally has a relatively easy to use interface. It also included several extra features, most notably its file recovery database and a light firewall. Microsoft SE comes in a close second -- while not as proactive as Avast it has the slickest interface and least amount of free drawbacks. AVG is right behind Microsoft as the second most easy-to-use solution with several useful extras including identity theft protection. Avira claims last place primarily due to its antiquated interface, confusing terminology, and annoying nag screen. Nonetheless, remember that all four products individually received our recommendation since they passed our tests.

Internet Marketing Tips - Is 2010 Going to Be Any Different Than 2009? By Steven Wagenheim Platinum Quality Author

Well, we're just a week away from the New Year (as of this writing) and I am sure a lot of marketers are wondering if 2010 is going to be any different than 2009. Well, if you're looking to me to answer that question, you're looking in the wrong place. Where you should be looking is in the mirror. If you're not quite sure what I'm talking about, keep reading. This article SHOULD make things crystal clear.
Sure, there are going to be technical changes in 2010. There are ALWAYS changes. Look at 2009. Google put the clamps down on crappy landing pages, Ezine Articles cracked down on crappy articles and the FTC has declared war on scammy web sites. We saw Twitter become a major phenomenon. New methods of promotion popped up along with new products and services. Sure, those things are going to occur every year. But that's not the kind of "different" I'm talking about.
What I'm talking about is YOU. Are YOU going to be any different in 2010? More to the point...are you finally going to have the kind of success that you SHOULD have? And please, don't look to new technology or Google or the FTC to save your backside. If anything, they're only going to make things harder for you, especially if you've been playing with fire in 2009. No, you're going to have to pull yourself up by your own boot straps and get it together. But how?
Ah, sadly, that is a question that only YOU can answer as well. Everybody has a different business model and therefore a different way of doing things. If you've been using pay per click and your campaigns haven't been as profitable as you'd like, maybe you need to take a look at a few things. For starters, the product you're promoting. Is it something people really want? What about your ads? Are they written as well as they could be? Are you targeting the right keywords? Are they keywords buyers look up or are they the ones that tire kickers use?
What about if you're using article marketing to get people to your site? Is your landing page worth squat? If it's not, the greatest article in the world isn't going to do diddle. For that matter, if your resource box isn't up to snuff, nobody is ever going to hit your landing page. And naturally, your articles better be well written with a catch title that actually gets people to read it in the first place. Every little detail must be just so or your campaign is going to be derailed.
Point is, you need to go over what you're doing with a fine tooth comb and make sure you have all the T's crossed and the I's dotted. Otherwise, you're going to be throwing away time AND money that you can't afford to squander.
To YOUR Success,
Steven Wagenheim

Blackberry Accessories & Apps Guide

BlackBerry Themes – Blackberry Accessories & Apps Guide

If you’ve been a BlackBerry user for even a short space of time, you’ve likely heard about BlackBerry themes already, but even if you have already heard of them, you might not be fully aware of what they are, how they work, and how you can utilize them. Along with BlackBerry accessories, themes are probably the best way to customize your smartphone
When you install a theme, which is simple and easy to do, it can change the appearance of almost everything on your BlackBerry – the backgrounds, the screens, the home screen, the icons and even the menus. They work in much the same way as the theme system used on Microsoft Windows – literally one click gives a totally different look and feel.
There are plenty of great themes to choose from too. You can find them by visiting online BlackBerry accessories and applications stores, where you will find hundreds to choose. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find. They have everything from elegant and classy business themes to fun and quirky entertainment related ones. On the other hand, if you consider yourself creative, why not create your own theme?
The software (BlackBerry Theme Studio v5.0) needed to create your own theme is easy enough to use and, best of all, it’s free. All you need is some creativity and some skill with graphics software. On downloading BlackBerry Theme Studio, you’ll see that there are two products contained within the suite – BlackBerry Composer and BlackBerry Theme Builder.
The BlackBerry Composer is the graphic creation and editing part of the suite, and it’s great for helping you craft images, whether they’re static or animated. It’s a useful piece of graphic design software that has the basic features of the standard graphics packages that most people have on their computer. You can use it to create all the images for your theme, though you can import them from elsewhere should you wish to do so.
The actual designing of the theme is done within the Theme Builder. The selection and allocation of the images is done from here. As well as choosing the images, it’s where you can adjust the fonts, change the position of objects on the screen, and set what, if any, sounds and animations are used, and they when they play.
If you fancy making some extra money for yourself, and there is even the potential to make some seriously big money, then you can sell the themes that you create on BlackBerry accessories and applications stores. These online stores can also be used to get inspiration for creating themes. Browse through the list of top sellers and most sought after themes and you’ll have no shortage of ideas – you could even use them as templates for your own ones.
To summarize, if you’re someone that wants to make your BlackBerry truly your own, then installing a theme, to go along with some cool BlackBerry accessories, is the way to go.

Who Invented The Ipod? The Complete Story By Kris Foster

The Ipod is a collection of trendy portable music players which was introduced by Apple. It was launched on October 2001. The Ipod is an amazing discovery. It has changed the way people think about music players. Music players are no more old big boxes which look really ugly. The Ipod looks better than any other music player in the market. Apple has had great success with the Ipod. The way the Ipod looks, the way it works, and the way it feels is just amazing. But who's the mastermind behind all this? Who invented the ipod? It surely must have taken a lot of brains to create such a masterpiece.
Who invented the Ipod? Why did Apple think only about a music player? Why not a revolutionary washing machine?
The answer is that all other electronic appliances had very well established markets. But nobody had tried on music players at that time. So Apple thought why not capture this market, and they have so successfully done it.
So, who actually invented the Ipod?
Jon Rubinstein with his team at Apple was given a one year's period to create the Apple Ipod. Tony Fadell and Michael Dhuey were also a part of the team. They successfully completed the project and the did it. This is the team who invented the Ipod.
The Ipod is so successful that it is really difficult to rival it. Ipod has established it's name and people trust on Apple Ipod. Rather than buying unbranded music players for cheap, people try to save money and later buy an Apple Ipod. That's what I also did. To learn more about this revolutionary music player and get information about it, visit my blog dedicated to Ipods-

Press Release:

22 April 2009 – Toshiba Computer Systems today announced a new addition to its mini-notebook range with the launch of the new Mini NB200 – a portable, highly stylish 10.1” laptop perfectly designed to fit the modern digital lifestyle.
The Mini NB200 is the perfect device for consumers looking for a stylish and reliable PC. A selection of models are available, with consumers able to take their pick from a 1.6GHz Intel® Atom®
Processor N270, or the new, more powerful Intel® N280 Atom® Processor, offering a clock speed of 1.66GHz. Both models also feature the Intel® 945GSE graphics chipset, and offer more than enough power for browsing the internet, emailing, running basic PC applications and enjoying digital media – currently the four most popular uses for mini notebooks.

A Truly Modern Design

With Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition as standard, the Mini NB200 offers a new ultra thin platform with a striking new design, with a unique textured cover to appeal to the most style-conscious of consumers. The new, near full-size keyboard on the Mini NB200 is available with a new ‘tiled’ layout to offer cleaner look and feel.
A total of four colour options will also be available, in shades of brown, black, white and pink1 guaranteeing a design to suit any taste.
The Mini NB200 comes with a 10.1” widescreen TruBrite LED backlight display (1024×600) providing richer colours and clearer definition - perfect for browsing the internet. A standard three cell Pink edition available from Q3 2009 battery offers life of up to four hours, while an upgraded nine cell variation delivers up to nine hours life from a single charge – providing maximum working flexibility when operating away from the mains.

HDD protection

Integrated Hard Disk Drive (HDD) storage of 160GB ensures that users have extensive storage space available for multimedia content and personal documents. While the highly portable nature of mini- notebooks exposes them to the knocks and bumps that are an inevitable feature of life on the move, the Mini NB200 features a 3D-accelerometer monitoring system that detects freefalls, shocks and vibrations and protects the integrated HDD to secure against the loss of any personal data.
An integrated 0.3MP webcam provides a portable option for online video and teleconferencing, while connectivity including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) allows users to easily connect to the internet on the move. Three integrated USB 2.0 slots are also included, providing the ability to plug into any number of external peripherals.
One of the three USB ports also features Toshiba’s innovative Sleep-and-Charge technology, allowing users to charge mobile phones and personal media players, even when the mini NB200 is turned off.
As a responsible global corporate citizen, Toshiba ensures that all laptops are RoHS-compliant, effectively reducing the environmental impact by restricting the use of lead, mercury and certain other hazardous substances. The new Toshiba mini NB200 is ENERGY STAR® 5.0 ready2.

The tech year in photos

Jump to: Featured stories

Some stories are best told with pictures, and many of the big tech stories of 2009 were no exception.

This year, our photographer and team of camera-wielding reporters went on location to capture not only the details of tech news stories, but also the sights and sounds of the places they happened and the people behind them. As the year--and the decade--come to a close, we look back at some of the more memorable images from CNET in 2009.

Once again, the year kicked off with lots of Apple news coming from Macworld in San Francisco, where we were introduced to an updated 17-inch MacBook Pro, iPhoto updates, and DRM-free songs in iTunes. Rumors of an iPhone Nano failed to pan out.

Eventually, of course, we did see the emergence of Apple's newest iPhone, the iPhone 3GS, and later in the year the launch of T-Mobile's Google Android-based phone, the MyTouch, a lesser-known phone that nevertheless launched with great fanfare.

Hacker communities continued to delve into the do-it-yourself world and rework systems, a theme closely connected to the tech industry. Newly opened spaces like the Noisebridge Hacker Space in San Francisco and the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, Calif., invited us in to take a look at their headquarters dedicated to breaking things down and rebuilding them.

Once again, tinkerers and creative types gathered for the annual Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif. The DIY entrepreneurial spirit that thrives in the Silicon Valley high-tech industry has roots in Halted, the electronics surplus store where engineers have shopped for computer parts to build their projects over the years.

Facebook outgrew its space and moved to bigger digs in Palo Alto, Calif., and we took a look inside their offices, as well.

Communities came together to educate, recycle, and reuse technology at Oakland's Technology Exchange West, and as green tech and sustainability continued market growth in 2009, the Bay Area showcased some innovative energy projects, including the integration of solar power into municipal transportation projects and a unique program to compost food scraps into methane to generate power for local water treatment facilities.

The health care industry is another that took center stage in 2009, and Kaiser Permanente showed CNET some of the steps it's taking to modernize health and medicine to provide better treatment as we toured their Sidney R. Garfield Health Care Innovation Center in San Leandro, Calif.

We also took a look at some of the more forward-thinking innovations NASA explored over the course of the year, including aerospace diagnostic testing inside the world's largest wind tunnel and the Vertical Motion Simulator, at which NASA is currently developing the next generation lunar landers.

Space exploration, always on the forefront of technological innovation, is constantly evolving, and CNET visited the Marscape at Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif., where scientists are busy playing around with the hardware and software that will one day become our eyes and ears in space.

Learning from the fusion ignition of the sun, the Nation Ignition Facility invited us to take a look at the world's largest laser facility. Back on Earth, NOAA announced a five-year educational partnership that will use cutting-edge technology aboard the Okeanos Explorer to bring the excitement of deep-sea discovery to a wider audience.

The tech world wasn't all science in 2009. We had fun too. At the E3 game expo, Microsoft, Nintendo, and Electronic Arts shared their visions for the future of gaming. Back in the Bay Area, musicians got busy applying technology to their acts.

The band 0th used video-teleconferencing program Skype to give cross-continental live performances, and Ben Lewry at Visionary Instruments in Oakland, Calif., embedded video screens into custom guitars for a whole new multimedia on-stage performance.

For our annual Road Trip feature, traveling reporter Daniel Terdiman toured the West and the Great Plains states. Along the way, he explored Cheyenne Mountain, the underground station known as "America's Fortress" and that houses NORAD, Air Force Space Command, U.S. Strategic Command, the National Security Agency, and other defense agencies; saw a former Wyoming coal mine that has been reclaimed and turned into a huge wind farm; trekked to the Utah Earthworks, the late Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty and his wife Nancy Holt's Sun Tunnels; and was the first reporter to see the completed solid rocket booster designed for future missions to the moon--and maybe Mars.

Review of 32GB iPod Touch For Sale - Apple's 3rd Generation Music Player is Beyond Words

Cheap Televisions

If you are looking for a new LCD television, or a plasma TV, then you will need to know where and how to find the best prices for your purchase. There are many suppliers of cheap LCD televisions and plasma TVs available. You can also choose from many different brands that are supplied on today's market. To find the best bargains around, you may want to look at the offerings that are online too.
If you buy your television from a store, you will be able to compare the many different companies that supply TVs today. Stores present all of the different brands side by side, so you will know which TVs offer the best picture quality for your needs. When you are looking at the many options available in the stores, you should be sure to analyze the clarity and definition of each TV. Then, you can choose the TV that offers the best experience to meet the requirements you have for your TV.
To find exceptional bargains, you may want to look at the offerings available online. Online retailers often have very good selections and more options to choose from than local stores. If you are looking for the cheapest TVs around, then you might want to check out the retailers who supply refurbished TVs. These TVs might be slightly older than the models sold in your local stores, but they will be available for much cheaper prices than you can find anywhere else. To buy the best deals on today's market, you should look into the models that are not well known. These models often have many of the same qualities of the higher priced televisions, but are provided at decent prices.
By purchasing your TV from a manufacturer who is not well known or well advertised, you can acquire your new TV at a deep discount. These deep discounts open the luxury TV market to people who would not ordinarily be able to buy TVs of this quality. These TVs may not offer statistics that are as good as the luxury brands found in your local stores though. Many people who have a great deal of experience with the television market believe these televisions provide a viewing experience that is practically comparable to the luxury brands offered today. The type of experience you have with these televisions can also depend on the type of use you subject them to.
These cheaper models are often perfect solutions for people who desire to use their TV for basic activities. Many people report that these televisions offer an excellent experience when the display settings are optimized for the type of use they are using the TV for.
If you desire to use your TV for high definition pictures, you should probably invest into a slightly more expensive television to receive a higher quality picture from your purchase.
The main difference between the cheaper televisions and the more expensive versions is generally found in the resolution and in the refresh rates. The more expensive televisions will produce a picture with more clarity, but the lower priced televisions often offer resolution capabilities that are sufficient for most general uses.
Cheap LCD televisions and plasma TVs only slightly differ from the more expensive versions on the market today. The average person usually can't notice the difference between the televisions, but users with more experience may be able to see differences in the clarity of the more expensive brands. Most users find the cheaper versions to provide a display of exceptional quality, even though the brand of the TV is not well known.

Mini LCD Screen

More and more people seem to be interested in the mini LCD screens. Maybe they want to in their car or maybe they just want it in their bag to watch if they take a break, whatever the reason these mini LCD screens seems to be getting more and more popular.
You can pretty much expect the quality to be about the same as the LCD screen that you have at home. If you don't have one it will be even better than you tube TV at home. And the screen is looks very good even in broad day light. Another big plus is that it does not take allot of people so it is ideal to take anywhere. In fact the LCD power consumption has drastically reduced throughout the years and even the bigger screens do not take much power. The refresh rate is fast and won't be noticed at all.
One other big reason some people love these mini lcd screens is that they work at all altitudes, this makes them ideal for the people that fly allot in planes that does not have TV's. LCD is not the only mini screen it has a competitor, there is also Plasma mini screens but they don't come close to the LCD as they need more power have altitude problems. With hundred and sixty to hundred and seventy five percent viewing range this screen can easily be watched by more than one person.
Mini LCD screens also come in HD meaning that you have exceptional quality; you can watch blue ray movies at their full potential anywhere. Most LCD monitors come with 2 speakers that makes this even more comfortable. But I would recommend getting headphones if you are going to use it in a plane. Big LCD's sometimes cost a fortune but you can pick up these mini lcd screens without having to spend all your money these days. Because these screens are so small they almost seem to have better quality than the big LCD TV's.
Because the screen is LCD and not Plasma you never ever have to worry about image burns as you might have the pause the unit for long periods of time. Responsiveness has also dramatically increased for these mini lcd screen in the recent years and is instant now. One can even pick up a LCD photo screen that looks exactly like a normal photo until it changes. This way allot of space can be saved. The most popular ratio seems to be a thousand by one.
These mini lcd screen can last sixty thousand hours and if they are over than a simple replacement can be made to fix the screen. Because of all this Mini LCD screens tend to the in thing these days I even see people on the bus that watch TV while they are on their way to work. Be sure to check all of these mini screens before making a decision as there are lots of them out there.

Today, T-Mobile, Google and HTC are introducing the first Google Android phone, the T-Mobile G1. The touch screen device also has a full QWERTY keyboard, features Google maps, Google browser (Chrome light), Wi-Fi, gaming and more.

Currently there are software tools for working with Word, Excel and PDF, but not yet support desktop syncing or MS Exchange.

The T-Mobile G1 will be SIM locked to T-Mobile and will sell for $179 with 2-year contract. The lowest data plan will be $35 with unlimited messaging and Internet access. The device will be launched officially on October 22nd.

Here are some pictures of the device running various apps:

Here is the official announcement:

T-Mobile today announced the international launch of the world’s first Android™-powered mobile phone in partnership with Google. Available soon only for T-Mobile customers spanning two continents, the T-Mobile G1 combines full touch-screen functionality and a QWERTY keyboard with a mobile Web experience that includes the popular Google products that millions have enjoyed on the desktop, including Google Maps Street View™, Gmail™, YouTube™
and others.

“We are proud that T-Mobile is the first operator in the world to launch an Android-powered mobile device,” said Christopher Schläffer, group product and innovation officer of Deutsche Telekom. “Since 2005, Google has been an established partner in T-Mobile’s groundbreaking approach to bringing the open mobile Internet to the mass market. With the T-Mobile G1, we are continuing our strong tradition of being pioneers in the world of the open Internet.”

Cole Brodman, chief technology and innovation officer, T-Mobile USA, said, “The Internet and the mobile phone are both indispensable tools for our hectic lives, but only a fraction of us access the Web on our phones. The T-Mobile G1 is our opportunity in the U.S. to accelerate the mass adoption of the mobile Web, by unleashing Google innovation with a unique software experience that mobilizes the Google services hundreds of millions of consumers rely on every day.”

“Increasingly, connectivity does not just mean a phone call, but rather access to the world’s information,” said Andy Rubin, senior director of mobile platforms for Google. “Today’s news signifies an important first step for the Open Handset Alliance: With Android, we’ve opened the mobile Web not only for millions of users, but also to mobilize the developer community that understands the next most important platform in the world rests in the palm of our hand.”

With a fun and intuitive user interface and one-touch access to Google Search, the T-Mobile G1 is also the first phone to provide access to Android Market, where customers can find and download unique applications to expand and personalize their phone to fit their lifestyle.

T-Mobile customers in the U.S. have the opportunity to pre-order the T-Mobile G1, in limited quantities, beginning today at and be among the first to experience this game-changing phone. The device will be available at select T-Mobile retail stores and online in the U.S. beginning Oct. 22, for a price of $179 with a two-year voice and data agreement. The T-Mobile G1 will also be available in the United Kingdom beginning in November, and across Europe in the first quarter of 2009. Countries include Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and the Netherlands.

Delivering the Familiarity of Google for a Superior Mobile Internet Experience:
The T-Mobile G1 with Google delivers a premium, easy-to-use mobile Web and communications experience in one device. Working together, T-Mobile, Google and HTC integrated Android and T-Mobile services into the phone’s form and function. The T-Mobile G1’s vibrant, high-quality screen slides open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, great for communicating with friends online or using the phone’s e-mail, IM and mobile messaging capabilities. As another option for accessing the device, the T-Mobile G1 comes equipped with a convenient trackball for more precise, one-handed navigation.

“T-Mobile, Google and HTC share a similar vision for making the mobile Internet practical, relevant and fun,” said Peter Chou, president and CEO, HTC Corp. “The T-Mobile G1 represents the culmination of this vision by offering a variety of services, applications and content that introduces an Internet experience that everyone can enjoy. We are honored to be joining T-Mobile and Google today for this historic unveiling of the T-Mobile G1.”

With one-click contextual search, T-Mobile G1 customers in a flash can search for relevant information with a touch of a finger. A full HTML Web browser allows users to see any Web page the way it was designed to be seen, and then easily zoom in to expand any section by simply tapping on the screen.
With built-in support for T-Mobile’s 3G and EDGE network as well as Wi-Fi, the T-Mobile G1 can connect to the best available high-speed data connection for surfing the Web and downloading information quickly and effortlessly.

Google Maps Street View:
With Google Maps, Google’s groundbreaking maps service, T-Mobile G1 users can instantly view maps and satellite imagery, as well as find local business and get driving directions, all from the phone’s easy-to-use touch interface. The T-Mobile G1 also includes Google Maps Street View, allowing customers to explore cities at street-level virtually while on the go. Without taking a step, customers can tour a far-away place as if they were there — standing on the street corner. Even better, the Google Maps feature syncs with the built-in compass on the phone — an industry first — to allow users to view locations and navigate 360 degrees by simply moving the phone with their hand. Google Maps Street View is available today in many U.S. locations and soon in European countries.

Communicating on the Go:
The T-Mobile G1 features a rich HTML e-mail client, which seamlessly syncs your e-mail, calendar and contacts from Gmail as well as most other POP3 or IMAP e-mail services. The T-Mobile G1 multitasks, so you can read a Web page while also downloading your e-mail in the background. It combines Instant Messaging support for Google Talk™, as well as AOL®, Yahoo! Messenger ® and Windows Live Messenger in the U.S. With access to high-speed Web browsing and a 3-megapixel camera with photo-sharing capabilities, the T-Mobile G1 is ideal for balancing a busy lifestyle, whether sharing pictures, checking the latest sports scores or accessing social networking sites.

Embracing User-Generated Content:
Customers can use the T-Mobile G1's 3G and Wi-Fi connection to attach and share pictures over email and MMS or download music from their favorite Web sites, and soon, upload and post pictures to their personal blog. Built-in support for YouTube allows customers to enjoy YouTube's originally-created content, easily navigate through YouTube's familiar video browsing categories or search for specific videos.

Music at Your Fingertips:
The T-Mobile G1 comes pre-loaded with a new application developed by that gives customers easy access to Amazon MP3,’s digital music download store with more than 6 million DRM-free MP3 tracks. Using the new application, T-Mobile G1 customers are able to search, sample, purchase and download music from Amazon MP3 directly to their device (downloading music from Amazon MP3 using the T-Mobile G1 requires a Wi-Fi connection; searching, sampling and purchasing music can be done anywhere with a cellular connection). The T-Mobile G1 will be the first device with the Amazon MP3 mobile application pre-loaded.

Android Market:
The T-Mobile G1 is the first phone to offer access to Android Market, which hosts unique applications and mash ups of existing and new services from developers around the world. With just a couple of short clicks, customers can find and download a wide range of innovative software applications — from games to social networking and on-the-go shopping — to personalize their phone and enhance their mobile lifestyle. When the phone launches next month, dozens of unique, first-of-a-kind Android applications will be available for download on Android Market, including:
· ShopSavvy: an application designed to help people do comparative shopping. Users scan the UPC code of a product with their phone’s camera while they are shopping, and can instantly compare prices from online merchants and nearby local stores.

Orange and T-Mobile UK to Merge, Create a Mobile Supergiant September 8th, 2009 | by Stan Schroeder

Two UK mobile carriers, T-Mobile and Orange, plan to merge their businesses in a deal that will cost between $655 and $983 million, creating a supergiant with 28.4 million customers.
The deal, which is due to be signed November, comes on the heels of poor financial results from T-Mobile and lackluster sales from Orange, and the reasons behind it are quite obvious: saving money. Despite the huge initial cost of the merger, the two companies expect to save, over time, up to 5.7 billion dollars. Part of these savings will probably reflect on the combined staff of the two companies: Orange’s 12,500 and T-Mobile’s 6,500 employees, although a spokeswoman said that it’s too early to talk about the impact on the workforce.
As far as branding goes, both brands will remain separate in the first 18 months after the deal is completed. Orange chief executive Tom Alexander will lead the new company, while T-Mobile’s UK boss Richard Moat will become the COO.
The new company will hold around 37% of the mobile market, overtaking O2, which will surely raise suspicion from the competition authorities in the UK and the European Union. As for the users, Orange and T-Mobile promise better coverage and network quality, as well as improved customer service.

Birthday DVDs and Anniversary DVDs Make Great Gifts

Birthday DVDs and Anniversary DVDs Make Great Gifts
Don't know what to get that one person that already has everything? Some gifts that are sure to please your loved ones are birthday DVDs and anniversary DVDs. You can spend just a few dollars on a DVD and have a priceless gift to give to someone special. So if you don't know what to give someone start with a DVD of their happy occasion.
If you are celebrating an adult's birthday by holding a party in their honour, you may want to get out the camcorder and capture some of the special moments so that the moment can be relived for years to come. You may want to get some personal messages from those who attended the party. Record a personal message at the beginning of the DVD to let them know how much they mean to you and how much you love them. Use this time to reflect back on some special moments that you have shared.
If you are invited to a child's birthday party you will want to record birthday DVDs for them to look back on as they grow up. Start a tradition of viewing the birthday DVDs every year on their birthday so everyone can see how much they have grown. Make several copies of birthday DVDs so you can give a copy to the birthday child, the parents, and keep one for yourself. You will always have those memories with you no matter how old they get. These DVDs will make great gifts when the child reaches adulthood, perhaps for an 18th birthday present.
Anniversary DVDs can be valuable for many reasons. Most couples usually only have the tape of their wedding to show them sharing special moments together, but there is no reason that this should be the case. They could also have anniversary DVDs for every year they are married. It may be a message to each other on their anniversary as they celebrate it together. They may have an anniversary party every year to celebrate another year of being together. Anniversary DVD's are an excellent way to remember everyone around them and how they love each other. At the beginning of the DVD, take a moment to reflect back on their wedding day. Record their favourite song, pictures of the wedding party, the place that they got married at, and more. This will set the mood and make the DVD even more memorable.
No matter what occasion you are invited to you know that giving birthday DVDs or anniversary DVDs is the perfect gift because it is a treasure. People can receive the most expensive gifts for these happy occasions, but a DVD is truly priceless. If you are unable to put together a DVD yourself, you can usually find a readymade alternative. These will be very different, in that they may concentrate on the year in question rather than individuals, but they are still sure to bring back memories. In the case of birthdays, an informative programme about the birth year can prove intriguing.
Enter a world of truly original gifts from The Original Gift Company and visit our flagship store, based in the historic Stow-on-the-Wold in the heart of the Cotswolds. The Original Gift Company is probably best-known as the publisher of Britain's favourite gift catalogue, full of inspiring ideas and with free personalisation on many products.If you want to buy a special birthday DVD for your loved ones, visit us online at

FIFA 10 Breaks Sales Records selling videogame in the world

FIFA 10 Breaks Sales Records selling videogame in the world 

Electronic Arts, a developer that does not have a lot of good news to share lately, has said that FIFA 10, the football title released two months ago, has reached 4.5 millions sold worldwide, representing 26% more than it managed to move in the same period of last year. FIFA 10 has already been confirmed as being the fastest selling videogame in the world, with Electronic Arts saying that 1.7 million copies of the game were sold in the first week during which the game was available in Europe.

FIFA 10 has also set some records online, with an average of 3 million matches every day and with a total of more than 113 million since the release date.

FIFA 10 Ultimate Team is set to arrive early during February 2010 and will be delivered via the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, costing 400 Microsoft Points, and via the PlayStation Network, with a price tag of 4.99 dollars.

The new mode has been developed by EA Canada and will allow players to create a customized team, trade the biggest stars and play a more streamlined version of FIFA 10 with their friends online. One of the big changes will be a chemistry system that will show how different players are getting along and cooperate on the pitch.

Paul Hossack, who is a producer working on the football simulation, stated that “FIFA 10 Ultimate Team adds a lot more authenticity to a unique game that will update with new challenges and content over time. We now have over 7,000 players from 27 leagues available, from which gamers will craft one or multiple squads to show their mastery of the revamped, more realistic chemistry system, and compete in tournaments with exciting requirements and rewards. On top of that, we’ll release new tournaments and other updates regularly to keep the experience fresh and exciting.”

The Electronic Watchdog - Features of the New Model By Jack Krohn Platinum Quality Author

The electronic watch dog is perhaps the most effective and popular home security device on the market today. It has been around for a long time but a new version of the old barking dog alarm has some cool features you should know about.
You may already know the basics about this alarm that can be used for home security or business security. In case you don't here they are.
It uses "radar-wave sense control" that allows it to "see" thru wood, glass, brick, cement et. al. up to twenty feet away. It has a 100 degree filed of view. When someone enters that area the sound of an angry barking dog starts.
By the way, police tell us that the sound of a barking dog is the most effective deterrent for burglars.
"In a recent Colorado Springs Gazette article, David Husted crime prevention officer of the Falcon Division of the Colorado Springs Police department was quoted as saying 'The sound of a big dog barking is a really good deterrent, too.' Asked if he'd spend money on an alarm or dog 'I don't know, I may just go with the dog, if it's got a really good bark.' "
The unit is nine inches tall and uses AC power. Just plug it in aim in the direction you want to protect and using the new remote control arm or disarm the unit. It also has a new panic alarm feature. Volume and radar sensitivity are adjustable.
One of the new features allows you to connect one additional sensor-a motion sensor or a door/window sensor. This greatly expands your capability for home or business security.
Business owners love the electronic watch dog for their retail stores. Change the setting and it will announce customers with a chime or alarm.
The older model was very popular-the new features will make this almost a must have for home or business security. As a bonus as my California customers know this barking dog alarm is great for scaring bears out of their back yards.
Jack Krohn owns Security Solutions and is the author of over 400 articles on self defense and home security.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-45 NJ48

Panasonic's original hardened notebook, the CF-25 was a true outdoorsman's portable, complete with corner protectors and splash proofing. However, not everybody needs this level of durability. Panasonic has recognised this, while acknowledging the fact that many notebooks aren't robust enough to withstand real-world usage. The new Toughbook CF-45 NJ48 is a kind of handy halfway house.
Panasonic has produced a machine that offers above-average resistance to maltreatment, without being excessively heavy. The Toughbook weighs 2.9kg excluding its power supply, which is very reasonable for a semi-hardened design, especially as it's also an all-in-one build with an integral CD-ROM drive and floppy drive.
The Toughbook has a magnesium alloy lid to provide proper protection from crush damage to the screen during transportation. The body of the machine is made from thick, fibreglass-reinforced mouldings with impact-resistant rounded corners.
Unlike the CF-25, the Toughbook isn't splash-proofed, so there are apertures in the case for cooling fans, the ports are exposed and the drive and battery compartments don't have waterproof seals.
Getting at the hard disk and battery pack is easy enough, as both are accessible beneath protective panels in the base. The panels are locked shut by large, robust catches, and the battery compartment panel is metal with an unbreakable rubber hinge.
The hard disk compartment is partially lagged with impact-deadening foam, and the drive itself is mounted in a surround that's partly filled with shock-absorbent polymer gel. I also noticed that the ports on the back panel were mounted on what appeared to be a single section of metal concealed within the outer casing. This should prevent shearing-type breakages of the connectors themselves should, for example, an attached printer cable be accidentally pulled. It also has the benefit of making the Kensington lock attachment next to the USB port impossible to break out of the body of the machine.
Sound comes in the form of a Yamaha OPL3-SA FM chip with a monaural speaker under the front edge of the case. This is adequate for one-to-one presentations, although the sound is thin and weak.
The optical trackball fitted to the Toughbook is a good example of its type. Panasonic maintains that 'many users' prefer trackballs to mousepads. I'm not one of them. Although it works, I still find having to use one finger to point and another to click rather awkward.
The keyboard was average, with a moderately responsive action but some sag in its base plate, a short spacebar and small Enter and Backspace keys. In its favour, the keypad is higher than the palmrest, which reduces forearm strain while typing, and the editing and cursor keys haven't been combined to save space at the expense of ease of use.
Panasonic has opted for a 12.1in SVGA resolution TFT screen, which operates at the standard 18-bit undithered maximum of 262,144 simultaneous colours. This should be more than enough, and while SVGA's 800 « 600 resolution isn't as nice as 1,024 « 768 XGA, it's perfectly usable. The screen is driven by the ever-popular 2Mb NeoMagic MagicGraph 128XD accelerator, which means decent performance and stable drivers.

Power management is shared between a BIOS setup utility, the Power icon in Control Panel, and key combinations for manual suspend-to-RAM or full suspend-to-disk. This isn't as elegant as a custom Windows-based control utility, but it does the job well enough, and you should get close to the quoted 2.5 hours running time unless you work the CD-ROM and hard disk really hard.

Toshiba Satellite T135-S1310 Review

Reviewed by: Denny Atkin
Review Date: October 2009
The Toshiba Satellite T135-S1310 will get your attention—and keep it—with a gorgeous red design, the shiny new Windows 7 operating system, and fly-across-the-country battery life. As Toshiba's entry into both the Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage (CULV) notebook and Windows 7 markets, this stylish, ultra-thin notebook fills the gap between netbooks and larger, higher-performance laptops in both price and performance. It offers much of the portability, light weight, low cost, and long battery life of a netbook, along with the ergonomic comfort and performance more typical of an full-size entry-level laptop.
The T135's stylish, thin design and rounded corners are reminiscent of an Apple MacBook Pro or Sony VAIO but with its own unique character. The plastic cover and the wrist rest of our review unit featured a Nova Red design with a slick, cross-hatched pattern (black and white are available as well), while the bezel around the monitor, keyboard, and underside are all black. The design looks good, but its glossy surface attracts and highlights fingerprints. It's about eight-tenths of an inch thick in the back, tapering down to just half an inch at the front. It's light, as well, weighing in at just 3.8 pounds.
