Facebook Security

With many exploits on wireless networks that can, without your knowledge, easily get your facebook info and overtake your account, it is more important that ever that security is on everyone’s mind.
Now I know that most people have no idea what I am talking about but trust me this little tip is a good one.

Facebook is now rolling out this feature so if it isn’t there try again later.
– Goto ‘Account’ in the upper right hand corner of your facebook page,
– Click on ‘Account Settings’
– Click on ‘Account Security’
– Check the box   Secure Browsing (https) Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible
– Click   SAVE

Now when you visit facebook.com you will be on a secure connection and snooping isn’t possible.
And that is your Best Bet!

Nintendo warns young children should not use 3DS

NEW YORK (AP) — Nintendo Co. is warning parents of children under 6 that they should not let them play with the upcoming 3DS, the highly anticipated handheld gaming system that boasts 3-D technology without the need for special glasses.

There is concern that watching 3-D screens could potentially damage kids’ eyes.

In a statement, Nintendo of America spokesman Charlie Scibetta said Friday that parents should use the parental controls on the 3DS to restrict access to the system’s 3D mode. The 3DS goes on sale in February in Japan and in March in the U.S. and Europe.

Nintendo has not announced a price for the system in the U.S. In Japan it will cost 25,000 yen ($304).
