  1. Review - Mozilla Firefox (64-bit Beta)

    40.0 Beta 1 (Jul 6, 2015)

    Have they fixed the incredible memory drain that's been plaguing it?

  2. Review - Mozilla Firefox for Windows

    38.0.6 (Jun 9, 2015)

    Has turned into an enormous memory hole. After 15-30 minutes of this app being open, consumes nearly a gig and a half of memory and becomes choppy and intermittently unresponsive.

  3. Review - I2P

    0.9.20 (Jun 4, 2015)

    If this thing can do what it proposes, it would mean leaps and bounds in the way of privacy. Will update review after thorough test drive.

    Xssshell: if you think that encryption is not necessary, regardless of the level of security you have, then I am glad you do not work in my security team.

  4. Review - Mozilla Firefox Portable Edition

    38.0.5 (Jun 4, 2015)

    FF has become a MAJOR memory hole.

    After a few minutes, has consumed over a gig of memory and bogs down ridiculously. In their effort to get bigger and better, they got worse and worse.

  5. Review - ESET Smart Security (64-bit)

    9.0.114.0 Beta (Jun 1, 2015)

    *** WARNING *** WARNING *** WARNING***

    This DOES NOT work on Windows 10 builds 10122 and up. Disables network connectivity regardless of what you do. Getting connection back may involve uninstalling, reinstalling, then uninstalling this product again, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling drivers etc. If you're dumb enough to try this, MAKE SURE you create a usable restore point prior to installing this.
    I've used Eset for years and I prefer it over any other AV software out there.... but this one's broken in a major way.

    You have been warned.

  6. Comment - Julius Baer drops suit against Wikileaks

    9.0.114.0 Beta (Mar 6, 2008 - 12:50 PM)

    The only reason for a person, persons, company or companies to have a problem with a whistleblower is that they were involved in wrong doing to begin with. With that in mind, the public by and large have the right to know. Don't put your hand in the cookie jar, and you will never get caught with it there.

  7. Comment - Three Cellular Carriers Fined Over 911

    9.0.114.0 Beta (Sep 1, 2007 - 6:03 PM)

    Um, you're not getting those phones for free, no matter what they tell you. You are in a contract that costs way more than you should have to pay for using phone service. Do you think you're really paying a fair price and getting what you're paying for? Keep telling yourself that. You WAY MORE than pay for those phones throughout the course of your contract. Try and cancel a contract and guess what? You get to pay a nice hefty cancellation fee. What do you think that fee is mostly for? You guessed it...to pay for that "free phone" you thought you got.

    Tracking people in 911 calls is not done by GPS.. it's done by cellular triangulation, and some other high technobabble.

  8. Comment - Google Opens Gmail Signups Further

    9.0.114.0 Beta (Feb 8, 2007 - 2:54 PM)

    Hotmail has the wonderful feature of setting up a white list that blocks out all emails from anyone except those that you specifically identify. Gmail doesn't have this. While the spam filter works fairly well, it still sickens me that the box fills up with close to 1500 spams over the course of 2 - 3 days. It wouldn't be a probolem with a configurable white list, which I've submitted requests for, but those requests seem to have fallen on "deaf ears, blind eyes"

  9. Comment - Microsoft Rushes to Fix Critical XP Flaw

    9.0.114.0 Beta (Jul 18, 2005 - 8:32 PM)

    If MS was informed in May, how can they say they're "rushing" to fix this? Shouldn't the patch have been made available at the very next set of updates? Oh yeah sure... 'they've been working on it'. Uh huh.

  10. Comment - Citigroup Loses Data on 3.9 Million

    9.0.114.0 Beta (Jun 7, 2005 - 11:07 AM)

    that's why they call it a 'class action suit' and yes, UPS deserves to be made to pay for their incompetence. Over the past 5-10 years they've been damaging and losing packages at an alarming rate, and they've been delivering packages late by sometimes as much as a day or two. WHat many customers don't realize is that they are entitled to refunds for these late or lost packages. UPS and other shippers rely on this ignorance to keep the 4 billion or so annual dollars a secret so they will not have to pay it back.
