Tuesday, January 24, 2017 HP expanded their battery recall to 100,000 laptops. These batteries pose a fire and burn hazard, it is essential to recheck your battery, even if you did so previously and were informed that it was not affected.

 The affected batteries were shipped with specific HP, Compaq, HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario, and HP Pavilion Notebook Computers sold worldwide from March 2013 through October 2016, and/or were sold as accessories or spares, or provided as replacements through Support. The affected batteries have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to customers.

 Customers should cease use of affected batteries immediately. Customers may continue to use their notebook computer without the battery installed, by connecting the notebook to external power.

Let’s Not Start the Year Off with Online Identity Theft

It's that time of year again, the time when you're able to sit and take breathe after a month of endless lines, shopping carts, and money flying out the window. The thing is before you know it it'll be time to do it all over again. Thankfully there seems to be a less stressful way of shopping that can be done from the comfort of your couch.

Computer & Phone Scams

There have been computer and phone scams since the dawn of technology.  Groups of hackers and data thieves are calling individuals and businesses stating they are from Microsoft, McAfee, Symantec, IRS, FBI and other well-known companies. They state that there is a virus or other problem on your system and they will ask you to go to a website so that they can help you correct the problem.  These type of scams are becoming more elaborate over the years. These BAD people prey on those of us who are protective enough about our technology to worry about our security being breached. Professional security companies like T.G. Consultants have been providing clients and blog followers with the information needed to combat these predators. But they are still getting through, planting viruses, malware and spyware. No user nor computer (PC or MAC based) or smartphone (Android or Apple) are immune.
