Google Breaks the Internet: This site may harm your computer

350°
287w ago - Update: It seems fixed now, the "This site may harm your computer." appears to be removed from the majority of Web sites.

Well at 1:55am on a Sunday in Australia, I went on google to search my local newspapers Web site, strangely I noticed that the site had been listed as harmful.

Scrolling down the page revealed that every other page was also listed as harmful. It came to me that the ultimate test to see if this was correct was to search google in google and just as I suspected, it was blacklisted as HARMFUL.

I found this hilarious so I took a screen capture in case Google tried to cover it up quickly. Its not often a large company such as google makes such as LARGE mistake.

This capture is attached to this article. Hope you enjoy!
 

Ten Cheap And Easy Upgrades to Revive Your Old PC

100°
287w ago - Is your old PC starting to feel a little sluggish? Upgrading a desktop computer really isn't as difficult as it sounds. The components are modular, the slots uniform and systems are expressly designed for expansion.

In most circumstances, you won't even need a screwdriver as most modern cases are held on with dinky little catches. Here are 10 upgrades that even your granny could do.

1. ReadyBoost
Want to speed up Windows Vista? ReadyBoost uses up to 4GB of flash memory as a disk cache for your hard drive, making file access and program launching faster. You can use a USB stick, Compact Flash card, SD card or any kind of removable memory to do the job.

2. Intel Turbo Memory
Similar to ReadyBoost, Intel Turbo Memory enhances the caching capabilities of your hard drive by swapping frequently accessed data into flash memory. The upgrade is fitted into a PCI Express Mini Card port - so is ideal for notebooks. You can pick up a 1GB card for around £30.

3. Second hard drive
Most desktop machines have a secondary HDD fitting dangling inside the cabinet, ready to plug in another hard drive. It really is just a case of slotting in the drive, connecting a power lead and data connector. Check first whether the system takes IDE or SATA drives - then use...
 

Throw Your Hard Drive Away, Google's Gdrive Arrives This Year

100°
288w ago - According to TGDaily, Google's Gdrive is set for a 2009 release. This new service is essentially an online storage where Google servers will be able to hold the entire contents of your hard drive.

But that's not all, the service will also allow you perform some cool tricks like booting the online drive to load the Google OS.

To quote: The service has the potential to eclipse even Gmail, Google's second best-known product after their google.com search engine.

That said, it's no wonder users have been ripe with anticipation for years - yes, that's how long the rumors have persisted. Gdrive is basically online storage where Google servers have enough capacity to hold the entire contents of your hard drive.

It will likely also come with enough brains to do cool tricks now with bigger things down the road - like booting your computer from online drive to load the Google operating system.

How Did You Decide Upon Your Next-Gen Console Purchase?

550°
289w ago - Too often, analysts and journalists forget that with the sheer amount of information available these days, it can be difficult for a consumer to make a decision.

I can distinctly recall working down at EB during the launch of the PS2 (yes, I'm that old; just shut up), and it became painfully clear that most consumers, even some who considered themselves gamers, were dazed and confused.

"Just too many conflicting reports," or something to that affect, is a commonly heard comment. So, how did you decide upon your console purchase?

Bear in mind I'm only talking about this new generation, so if you've purchased a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Wii, I want to know why. How did you arrive at the conclusion? None of these, even the relatively inexpensive Wii, is cheap enough to be considered an "impulse buy," so obviously, one would assume a great deal of thought went into your purchase decision.

I am well aware of the fanboys who plunked down their money without doing any research whatsoever, but if they bothered with responsible research, they wouldn't be embarrassingly biased, now would they? Anywho, I suppose I'll start; I own a PS3 and a 360, and here's why-

The Xbox 360 Purchase

I had an Xbox, and although it turned out to be a far less reliable machine...
