2014 Wednesday, February 19 - Microsoft to end support for Windows XP in April, 2014
If you use Windows XP, then mark April 8th, 2014 on your calendar. On that date, Microsoft will end support for Windows XP. What does this mean? Security risks. Machines running Windows XP will no longer receive automatic updates (including security related patches) or Microsoft Security Essentials. This opens up security vulnerabilities for windows XP machines and the networks connected to them. Also, software vendors are likely to stop support for newer versions of applications running on an unsupported operating system. Every day beyond April 8th, your XP computers will become less secure. If your XP computers are part of a network, then those computers will represent an increasing vulnerability to the entire network. If you are running Windows XP, then you should consider upgrading to either Windows 7 or Windows 8 in order to remain supported by Microsoft (and most other vendors) and maintain tight security for your machines and network. If your current computer is not capable of running Windows 7 or 8, then it may be time to consider replacing it.

2013 Thursday, July 25 - Microsoft Readies IE11 for Windows 7, Too
Browser aficionados and haters alike will be overjoyed that Microsoft is keeping its promise to keep the new Internet Explorer up-to-date on Windows 7 as well as Windows 8. The Internet Explorer 11 Developer's Preview for Windows 7 introduces the most of the new features and functionality of the Windows 8.1 default browser. Microsoft says that, like IE 10 for Windows 7, IE 11 won't have the modern interface, but promises promises to bring improved performance, faster page load times, new standards support for next generation sites, and a completely redesigned “F12” developer toolkit. A faster browsing experience is thanks to new technologies such as Internet Explorer 11’s ability to natively decode images in real-team using a machine’s GPU; this ability plus the browser’s additional capability to render text on the GPU is said to also use less memory usage, reduce energy usage, and improve battery life. In addition, the latest version of Microsoft’s browser is the first to implement the World Wide Web Consortium’s Resource Priorities, allowing web developers to pick which parts of a web page need to be loaded first. A little bit of artificial intelligence also never hurts (except in every Sci-Fi movie ever), which is why Internet Explorer 11 supports HTML5 link prefetching and pre-rendering; this allows the web browser to try and anticipate where you will visit next and load those links before you click on them. To protect a user’s machine against malicious intent, Internet Explorer 11 scans all WebGL content for unsafe content. In addition, the hardware-accelerated WebGL content will only run on verified safe GPU drivers and hardware. You can learn more about IE 11 at CNET's website here.

2013 Thursday, July 25 - Children's Online Privacy Protection Act - New Provisions Effective July, 2013
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) gives parents control over what information websites can collect from their kids. The COPPA Rule — with new provisions in effect on July 1, 2013 — puts additional protections in place and streamlines other procedures that companies covered by the rule need to follow. Websites designed for kids or that are geared to a general audience but may collect information from anyone under the age of 13 must comply with COPPA’s requirements. You can read more about this important ruling at MSNBC's website by clicking here, or visiting the Bureau of Consumer Protection Business Center here.
