Think your Mac is safe?

So you think that since you own a Mac that you are invulnerable. Not true. You are less likely to get hacked but just like Windows, Mac has security updates all the time. but Mac only supports their operating system for about 18 months instead of 10 years like Microsoft does.
With a Mac you need to make sure you purchase the new version of the OS in order to keep it secure.
Also, when you have an unsupported edition other things don’t get updated so you might not be able to browse the internet anymore for example.
The currently supported version is 10.9 aka known as Mavericks. I see that Mac has decided to give the Mavericks upgrade for free this time.

Static discharge from a vacuum cleaner

This mornings infomercial was about not using a vacuum inside of your computer since static discharge can destroy it.
I then went on to talk about how I use a vacuum cleaner to clean computers.
WHAT? I have a special vacuum that looks like a toolbox which has conductive hoses and is grounded so that I don't get static buildup.

When shopping online make sure you are comparing the identical items (2)

I had a person on facebook mention that they were looking for a specific Intel Solid State Drive so I commented that they could get one at my store.
They came back and said that the same model was $30 more from my store than another one, so I looked into it and the one they were looking at was OEM. This stands for Original Equipment Manufacture,r whereas mine is the “retail” version.
If you go to the Intel website you will see that the “Retail one has a 5 year warranty, and the OEM has whatever the seller wants to put on it which could be nothing. Watch what you are shopping for and make sure that you are comparing identical items.
