What I’m looking at on the internet

My how time flys by! It’s hard to believe that I’ve been blogging for an entire semester now.

Seeing how this will be my last ‘official’ blog, I thought it would be fun to share some interesting things I’ve found on the web the past few days to give you an idea of what my browsing habits are like.

Here we go!

This really awesome concept video from 1994 shows a tablet computer that can read newspapers just like an iPad, but no one had any idea what an iPad was back then.

I’ve been reading a lot about CISPA, which passed in the U.S. House of Representatives this week. It’s a scary bill, and if it makes its way into law, that would mean a serious hit to online privacy.

Here’s a video from some of my favorite YouTubers at SourceFed, who explain more about CISPA and what it means to everyone who uses the internet.

Facebook has a new marketplace for anti-virus software from vendors like McAfee, Microsoft Security Essentials, and Norton Anti-Virus for Windows users. And for Mac users, there is Sophos anti-virus, which I have installed on my own personal computer.

Some of the downloads are just trials, like the one from McAfee, which lets you use their AV software free for 6 months, but others, like Microsoft Security Essentials, are completely free to use.

Facebook is just trying to encourage more users to protect their machines from the ever-growing malware threats on the internet. The internet security companies and Facebook also agreed to combine their databases of malware infected links to make Facebook a safer place to surf.

These are just a few of the things I’ve been looking at on the internet the past few days, but I hope they give you a better idea of what I do when I’m surfing the web.

What are some of your favorite things to do when you’re on the web?

Do you like watching kitty videos on YouTube? Playing online games? I’d love to hear what some of your favorite things to do are!

And I’d just like to say thank you for reading my blog, I really appreciate it.

I’ll try to keep it updated as much as I can in the future!
