Russian Sought Over Cybercrime Botnet
     Wed, Jun 04 2014 | 12:48A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BBC Reports: "The US has charged a Russian man with being behind a major cybercrime operation that affected individuals and businesses worldwide.

Evgeniy Bogachev, said to be known as "lucky12345" and "slavik", is accused of being involved in attacks on more than a million computers. Once installed on a victim's machine, Gameover Zeus will search specifically for files containing financial information.

If it cannot find anything it deems of worth, some strains of Gameover Zeus will then install Cryptolocker - a ransomware program that locks a person's machine until a fee is paid."

NZXT releases CAM software App
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 11:44A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Upgrading, managing and maintaining all of the components inside a computer can be a daunting task for both new builders and veterans alike. Over the years, computer hardware has advanced rapidly and as a result, monitoring software has become increasingly complex.


CAM changes all of that as the first hardware monitoring software designed specifically to provide the best user experience possible. A beautifully simple interface combined with an interactive feature set provides an effortless approach to maintaining your computer.

Giving a modern refresh to antiquated monitoring methods, CAM offers the ability to sync your data to the cloud, allowing you to access your data and control CAM from anywhere using your mobile device. More than just a piece of software, CAM is a companion you can trust.


With its all-encompassing approach to PC health, CAM actively monitors and tracks all of the important PC statistics ranging from network speeds, storage space, component temperatures, load usage over time and much more.

CAM also offers a proactive approach to PC health by notifying you of issues long before they become big problems. It is the first monitoring software to provide meaningful notifications in real-time about things such as suggested upgrades, critical issues, malfunctioning hardware and more.
CAM is a big step in NZXT’s long-term goal of contributing to the growth and development of the DIY building community. You can certainly expect big things to follow, perhaps sooner than you think!

Office Mobile For iPad and iPhone Review
     Fri, Apr 11 2014 | 9:02A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Office for iPad is finally here, and for once, the term “finally” is truly justified. For nearly as long as the iPad has been available, general consumers and enterprise users alike have been clamoring for Microsoft’s suite of document editing tools. In fact, the dearth of Office on iPad enabled an entire ecosystem to grow, with the likes of Quickoffice and DocsToGo stepping in to fill the void. Eventually, Apple’s own iWork suite was unleashed on iOS for free, which also helped bridge the gap. But even still, there has been a void: you can imitate Office and get by, but there was real, no bona fide replacement for the original...

Last year CyberLink added the option to subscribe to PowerDVD alongside their cloud service, and that continues to be available this year with PowerDVD 14. The $44.99 per year (or $14.99 per quarter) alongside the standard purchase options of Ultra ($99.95), Pro ($79.95) and Standard ($49.95). If you opt for the subscription or Ultra 10GB of CyberLink Cloud storage is included in the price alongside the Android/iOS/Windows 8 Metro Power Media Player. There are quite a few new features this year, including HEVC (H.265), WASAPI audio support, and automatic cloud-based file synchronization between clients.

Humble Indie Bundle 11 Review
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 4:04P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the individual reviews done, the question is if the Humble Indie Bundle 11 is worth getting? In my opinion, it certainly is. Dust: An Elysian Tale and The Swapper I would personally recommend. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is also fun, but does not pique my interest much. That does not mean it will fail with you though, and it is definitely worth giving a shot. Guacamelee! Gold Edition is also a good game, but I am just not the gamer it is targeted at. If you are, then definitely get it. Really all of the base games are quite good and enjoyable. The only question is which appeal to you the most?"

Let`s learn how to use this powerful software."

Intel Bay Trail NUC Linux Performance Preview
     Fri, Feb 14 2014 | 2:59P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week on Phoronix I shared my initial impressions of the Intel Bay Trail NUC Kit when running Ubuntu Linux. I`ve been impressed by the size, features, and price of this barebones Intel system sporting a low-power SoC with built-in HD Graphics capabilities that work well under Linux. Here`s some early CPU benchmarks for those trying to gauge the Intel Celeron N2820 performance under Ubuntu."

Humble Bundle: PC and Android 8 Review
     Tue, Jan 28 2014 | 8:31A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of the beat-the-average games, I find Anomaly 2 to be worth the price alone. It is a strong title and a solid experience, and I have not even played it all the way through! Hero Academy could also be worth it, but only if you can take advantage of the multiplayer. Without friends or a willingness to play with strangers, the single-player is just not compelling enough to warrant a purchase."
