Today in my column in the Chattanooga Times Free Press, I discuss the need for protective software for your computer. It is your only defense against hackers trying to destroy or sabotage your system. To give an example of how serious the threat is, I once tested to see how often a hacker was trying to access my system. I had an average of four hits a minute, probably from automated hacking programs that ping addresses to see if somebodys asleep. So take care, beware and protect yourself.
In my podcast today I discuss some of the latest news and answer a readers e-mail question. I really need and appreciate all your emails, more than you know.
A bit of news.LG may come out with a hybrid Blu-Ray-HD-DVD player this year. If this happens, it will help us choose players for the new DVD formats. It would be financial suicide to try to pick which one will win the current format war. So maybe well be spared.
Thanks for reading. More later ...
