After coming out of Beta toward the end of December, avast! Free Mobile Security has gained much attention. These guys are offering everything the other anti-virus/security apps bring to the table and then some. Complete with root features (yes, you heard that right), this is the fullest security app we have ever used. All for a price everyone can afford – free.

Tune up your PC this holiday with these smart savings

Tune up your PC this holiday with these smart savings

Taking care of your computer means that it will serve you well and hopefully delay the need to upgrade your hardware for as long as possible. The festive season is now upon us, which  means over-indulging in the food and drink departments and generally failing to look after ourselves. But this does not mean that our computers also need to be neglected.

25 downloads you may have missed this week

While much of the IT world has been focused on news about the iPhone 4S and iOS 5, there has been a huge number of other newsworthy releases in the past week.

Related to portable devices such as a the iPhone is Freemake Video Converter 2.4.0, which makes it easy to convert videos between formats and, in particular, convert them optimized for viewing on a specific device.  The app can also be used to rip non-copy-protected DVDs and to share your videos using YouTube. From the same company is Freemake Video Downloader 2.2.0 which can be used to download videos from the likes of YouTube and Dailymotion, and Freemake Audio Converter 1.1.0 which, much like its video related sibling, can be used to convert audio tracks from one format to another.

Software for (Naked) Celebs

Total%20Defense.jpg
In light of all the nudie photos hacked from celeb phones these days, might we suggest that this is the perfect gift for any public star in your life.

Mobile Security software from Total Defense is a software suite made specifically to protect smartphones. If Scarlett Johansson had Mobile Security, those embarrassing photos of her backside wouldn’t have been splashed all over the internet last week. Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake could also have avoided some very public, ah… exposure.

Avast Anti-virus Making Its Way to Android

Avast is a very popular Windows anti-virus, and now apparently, they are working on an Android version.  Recent malware scares in the Android Market have started to underline the fact that Android devices aren’t merely just phone any more.  They are full fledged computers, and as such, they are susceptible to the nefarious attacks of the evil-doing jerks of the world.

The Avast app will reportedly have VPN services integrated in to the app, in addition to the antivirus engine, anti-theft functionality, phone tracking, as well as parental locks.

A tale of two "red alerts:" Which Windows warnings should you heed?

A tale of two "red alerts:" Which Windows warnings should you heed?

By Scott M. Fulton, III, Betanews

Literally every day at Betanews, we get at least one security vendor “alert” of some type, warning us to be on the lookout for the latest malware. The message is always the same: Advise users to stay vigilant, to keep patching, to upgrade their antivirus to the latest editions. But the profiles of the malware typically look the same, too — stuff you might click on by accident, links pretending to be from your “best friend” in an e-mail message, ads for products that look too good to be true.

Tweeting toilet proves that you don’t have to be human to be a geek

Tweeting toilet proves that you don't have to be human to be a geek

twitter-toilet.jpg

Apparently it was a joke by this gentleman which got him hooked to Twitter. And his toilet too. Seth Hardy, a researcher for an anti-virus company, wasn’t too fond of Twitter and decided to point out what he terms “very mundane stuff” on the site by hooking up his toilet (Twitter handle – @hacklab.toilet) with help from some microcontrollers, wires and Arduino boards to answer Twitter’s “What are you doing?” question. But Twitter’s subsequent explosion got him 580 followers and he says he is now hooked into doing something useful with his DIY experiment – to test out the Arduino boards.
