“Your computer appears to be infected”

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:12 am

That yellow warning atop the Google search page is real. Pay heed to it. Seeing the warning means that your computer is infected with a virus, one that redirects your Google searches through a proxy server. That means the results you see are tainted, often leading to other sites that further cause you woe. Be careful out there!

BYTE Magazine Returns (Sorta)

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:19 am

The grandaddy of them all, BYTE magazine has made a return to the world — the digital world.

Once upon a time, back when computer users were hobbyists and magazines were the way they learned about new stuff, BYTE was the king. There were other magazines as well, lots of them.

Most of the magazines were specific to your computer: PC World, PC Computing, PC Magazine for the PC; Nibble, InCider, SoftTalk for the Apple II; MacWorld and MacUser for the Macintosh; Compute! for just about everything else.

There were also computer news magazines like InfoWorld, nerd-specific magazines like Dr. Dobb’s Journal. Oh, and some magazines like Computer Shopper that occasionally were as thick as a phone book. I’m not kidding.

Anyway. BYTE is supposedly back.
