This is a great instructional video on how to find a MAC address on an Samsung Galaxy Android. A lot of people setup wireless security to filter by MAC address. This video helps you find what your wireless MAC address is for your phone. A mac address is 12 character hexadecimal number.
Microsoft discovered a bug or as us techies call it zero day vulnerability in the Internet Explorer web browser. The bug makes PCs vulnerable to attacks by hackers and malicious code. The security flaw affects hundreds of millions of Internet Explorer browser users. Microsoft said attackers can exploit the bug to infect the PC of somebody who visits a malicious website and then take control of the victim’s computer.
All but one supported edition of IE is affected: 2001′s IE6, 2006′s IE7, 2009′s IE8 and last year’s IE9. Together, those browsers accounted for 53% of all browsers used worldwide. The only exception is IE10, the browser bundled with the new Windows 8, which does not contain the bug.
Windows users are advised to switch from Internet Explorer to Chrome, Firefox or Opera until the bug is patched. Microsoft did not say how long that will take, but several security researchers said they expect the update within a week. The when Microsoft patches it will be rated “critical” the company’s highest threat ranking.
Microsoft will be releasing an out of band “critical” patch on Friday at close to 10 a.m. PT to patch this vulnerability.
Trillian is the all in one application for chating with friends from Google, Skype, Facebook, AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, and IRC. The applications integrates into Twitter and Facebook with alerts and checks both POP3 and IMAP e-mail.
Developed by Cerulean Studios, the software has been around since late 2002 it was designed to be the alternative to Windows Live Messenger. Then later incorporated several other IM protocols such as Google Talk, Skype, Facebook Chat and many more.
Trillian has definitely broadened their development horizons by making their software available for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Blackberry and Web / Cloud Client. Trillian Pro looks like a cheap purchase of only $12 dollars a year with added features. I do like their catchphrase “Skip a coffee this month and get started!”. Pro has a few feature benefits

There following the same structure that app developers are following on the mobile market with free apps versus paid app. The amount of features present in the paid version is not huge, but there are some notable services that might be beneficial to some users.
Over all I have been a huge fan of this application on the desktop and on the mobile application side. I have used this messanger on the Mac and on the Windows PC and I love the consistency and stability it brings. I like how I can save resources by running one messenger client and how there is not bloat hurting your application or PC performance. Overall this is a great application I will continue to use happily.
I was listening to This Week In Tech – http://twit.tv/ and one of the issues they spoke about was the Mac Retina display and how people have issues with the display and app support. So I decided to do some research.
Every one who purchased the Next Generation Mac Book Pro have had apps that don’t use Apple’s system fonts or haven’t had their graphical assets super-sized look terrible. The Retina Pro’s issues are with up scaling graphics across a compact 15-inch display area that’s harboring well over five million pixels.

The issue is Apple has a great product so far ahead of its time that there is no design support for it yet. Applications are suffering from this as well just to name the few I found from my research
Microsoft Office 2011 (This is the product I have heard most of the complaints about)

I have to say I enjoy listening to good radio shows and I have used programs like dar.fm and a few others that allow you to record radio and are good services but I find this app easier, much better looking and smoother. Whether you are using the free version or the paid version this is the ultimate app for radio listening.
