I can hear you saying, but Summer is fun and carefree and vacations are a time to get away from worry and stress! Yes, they are, but that doesn't mean the bad guys are going to leave you alone while you play. Far from it. Did you know that summer is one of the top seasons for identity theft? Part of this stems from the theft of electronics people take with them on vacation... So, how do you protect your identity?
Part of teaching our kids to be safe online is teaching them about using secure passwords, changing passwords frequently, and the safe storage of passwords. As our children grow up and begin using social networking sites like Facebook, we should be molding in them some safe habits so that when they set up online banking accounts or purchase goods online, they'll be sure to practice the same safety measures to protect their identities. Here are a few tips for creating secure passwords: Choose a phrase you'll remember. Use the first letter of each word in the phrase, the last word in the site's URL, and
You all have heard about how much I adore my Intel inspired Ultrabook. I have the Asus Zenbook and it gets fabulous reactions wherever I take it. Well, I was on Amazon.com this morning and noticed that Samsung's Intel inspired Ultrabook, the Samsung Series 5 13.3-Inch Ultrabook is on sale.

I don't go to questionable websites or play online games. I also use malware and virus scan protection software on my PC's to scan regularly for malicious hacks that could be accessing my information.
I've just taken my Intel Ultrabook out into public. While waiting at the car dealership's service desk, the guy helping me asked "is that a LAPTOP?" "But it's so thin!" "Hey, Lakisha, come see this gal's computer! Look how thin it is!!" The woman is blown away. Her first comment is disbelief. She's sure it's a tablet in a pretty case... Then, she wants to feel it, open it, see how heavy it is. She's comparing it to a friend's Macbook Air, which she swears is a lot heavier. I love people's reaction to this Asus Zenbook. When they open it and see the metal keys they are just that much more impressed.
