Practice Safe Web Browsing

One of the most common vectors for home users to have malware installed on their computers is via their web browser. It used to be enough to avoid going to sites that were of a questionable nature. Recently that changed, cybercriminals have started to use advertising served by google and yahoo to install malware on the computers. This is mostly done through vulnerabilities in flash and javascript ads.

Using Uber the Taxi Competitor

SPRING HILL- Uber is a simple alternative to taking a taxi, if you are good with a smart phone. You just install the Uber app on your smartphone. When you want to be picked up you activate the app and choose the Uber XL option and tell it where you would like to go. It gives you a range of what the ride would cost. It also tells you how long the driver will take to reach you.

You can accept what the Uber app says and a driver will come pick you up. If you do not feel comfortable going with the driver for some reason you can cancel at that point. You may be charged a fee.
