Android mortgage calculator

I've found 'Karl's Mortgage Calculator' to be a great mortgage tool for android. It's free but ad-supported with fairly unobtrusive banner ads. Does have lots of options though.

WTF?

Zotac Zbox?

The Zotac Zbox nano AD10 bare bones has been around for a while. Based on the AMD E-350, supports up to 4GB of RAM, Radeon HD 6310 gfx. It's 5"x5" with 100mm VESA mount (handy for bolting to the back of your screen.

No SIM card slot, but you could plug a dongle into one of the extra 2 USB 3.0 ports, it also has eSATA and wifi.

Mobile Trojan mimics Android clean-up tool

RE: Confused

I take it that the kill switch would have wiped the infected apps from handsets that had downloaded them from the official marketplace. And the Cleanup Tool is destined for those people who downloaded the infected apps from third-party sites?

Cold call scareware scammers aim to bring Mac fans into the fold

Stop

Title Fail?

Although the victim refers to a "spoof logmein site", it was in fact the legitimate logmein site (as explained in the bootnote)? In which case the .pkg file originated from logmein which is cross-platform and the scammer didn't know they were targetting a mac. (also in the article)

So we still don't know if the scammers would have been able to plant malware on his machine had they gained remote control of it. Does the article not invalidate it's own title?

This'll be why Vodaphone are dragging their heels with the HTC desire 2.2 update then? As soon as they release it, all those Desire owners will get a free 3G hotspot... which might dent their R201 sales figures.

Mine's the one with the unlocked Nexus 1 in the pocket.

Welcome

Welcome to tabbed browsing?

Hmm, maybe the average IE6 user hasn't realised that thanks to IE being part of windows update, they have moved on 2 versions and now have access to tabbed browsing.

Open the link in a new tab and voila, your search results remain!
