McAfee Site Advisor review

McAfee Site Advisor is a rare helpful browser add-on that will tell you exactly what to expect from a Web site. It fits in seamlessly with most browsers and is constantly updated with new information on top Web sites.

This program puts a small icon in your browser's URL bar that will help you gauge whether or not a site can be trusted. The icon changes colors -- green, yellow, and red -- based on how much of your … Read more

Reading your feeds without distractions

Unread is an RSS reader that attempts to focus on the joy of simply reading by cutting out unnecessary interface elements, using elegant fonts, and presenting stories with a simple design. On these fronts it does very well, but -- to put it bluntly -- Unread is an RSS reader you use to read other RSS readers. If that sounds weird, it's because it is. Unread takes all of its data from another RSS reader, then displays the content differently, but in the process loses much of the functionality found in the RSS reader from whence the content originates. … Read more

Part-time love? There's a dating site for that

I need to tell you about my dishwasher.

Sometimes it washes every dish, giving me a radiant feeling in several places. On other occasions, it spits, pouts, and leaves red plates brown.

There seems no reason why. It's just like that.

If it was a person, my dishwasher would be on Part Time Love. This is a dating site with an alluring promise: "Meaningful romance without everyday commitment."… Read more

'SNL's Obama forced into selfie to make up for Merkel spying

Technology and the president of the United States have something of a 404-prone relationship.

Just as he's trying to get over the stunning debacle of a health care Web site that has more technical flaws than an ice-dancing walrus, along comes the so-called Selfiegate.

This was the moment during the Nelson Mandela memorial service when Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt inveigled both President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron into a selfie.

Some thought this lacked decorum, even though the memorial service was upbeat.

Others suggested the first lady was angry at this juvenile display. So President Obama … Read more

Review: Users in India and elsewhere can benefit from Hao123: Reader & Sites

Baidu's Hao123: Reader & Sites is an Indian-oriented browser/start app for Android that's customizable for your location. It streams local, national, and international news and business updates, displays images, forecasts the weather, and lets you quickly access Google, Facebook, or any sites. Hao123 is free for Android devices.

Hao123's tile-based layout is functional, though the look might be too functional for some tastes, especially since so many Android apps now equal or surpass desktops in appearance. Hao123 displayed our local weather and an optional gallery view at the top and a scrolling image at the bottom, … Read more

Obamacare Web site mocked by, yes, insurance company

A couple of days ago, I received two letters from my health insurance company.

One welcomed me to its autopay system -- which was a touch odd, given that I had been in its autopay system for many years.

The second told me that I was about to have my health insurance cut off, as I hadn't paid my monthly bill.

Please forgive me, then, if I'm not bathed in admiration for the way health insurance companies do business. There is one, however, that wants me (and you) to believe it's the apogee of efficiency.

How to e-mail Web pages in OS X

When browsing the Web, you may wish to share what you are viewing with a friend or colleague by sending him or her an e-mail that references the page you are on.

This is most commonly done by copying and pasting a URL link to the Web page in an e-mail message, which may suffice for most purposes. Sometimes, however, the contents of a page may change, so you may want to preserve it as-is. If so, then you have several options available to you in OS X's Mail and Safari (though not all options are exclusive to these … Read more
