Windows 7 is four to five times less vulnerable to malware infections than is Windows XP.
Those are the findings of Microsoft's latest Security Intelligence Report (PDF), which detailed in depth the state of software vulnerabilities, exploits, security breaches, and malware in 2010.
Overall, the study found that infection rates for newer Microsoft operating systems with the latest service packs are consistently lower than those for older OSes, giving Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 the highest marks for security.
Looking at the number of reported infections per 1,000 computers, Microsoft found that Windows 7 64-bit had the lowest number at 2.5, while the 32-bit version had 3.8.
Windows XP with SP3 came in with 15.9 infections per 1,000, while XP with SP2 had the highest number at 19.3. Breaking down the numbers, Microsoft's stats mean that Windows 7 is around four to five times more secure than XP.
Windows Vista's infection rate was considerably lower than that for XP but still turned out to be double that for Windows 7.
Drilling down further, the 64-bit

Nokia has announced that it has chosen Qualcomm processors to power its upcoming line of Windows Phone 7 devices. Nokia settled on Qualcomm after negotiating with several different chip manufacturers. Qualcomm has powered every Windows Phone 7 smartphone to hit the market, though Microsoft has said that it will allow other chip manufacturers to power WP7 devices in the future. One of the companies Nokia talked to was ST-Ericsson, prompting ST-Ericsson's CEO to proclaim that its chips would power the new phones. It is possible that ST-Ericsson's CEO misspoke, or that Nokia is merely planning to use Qualcomm for its initial devices and ST-Ericsson's at a later date, since Qualcomm's chips are the only ones supported by Microsoft at this time.

A new report published by Millennial Media paints a picture of the global smartphone landscape in April of 2011. The company found that Android continued its domination in pure market share, holding a 53% of impressions on the company’s network. Apple’s iOS came in second with 28% and RIM’s BlackBerry OS came in third with 16%; Symbian, Windows, and “other” totalled under 4% of impressions. While Google continues to maim and destroy in terms of handset numbers, Apple continues to hold the crown when it comes to application revenues. “Revenue generated from applications on the iOS platform grew 6% month-over-month and represented 50% of the Application Platform Mix on our network, ranked by revenue, in April,” reads the report. Android is in a close second with 39% of app revenues and RIM ranked third with 9%. What are users downloading? The report states that games, mobile social networking, and music/entertainment applications are the top application categories. Millennial Media sees over 142 million unique mobile impressions on its network each month from over 5,500 different devices.
Apple appears to be a step closer to putting together a cloud-music service with the licensing blessing of the major record labels.

Following CNET's previous reports that Warner Music Group and EMI Music had signed on with Apple's rumored plans to store customers' music files on its servers, Bloomberg is reporting that Sony Music has added its name to the play list. The addition of Sony, which lists Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, and Foo Fighters among its featured recording artists, would leave only Universal Music Group as the lone holdout, but sources tell CNET that the recording industry's largest label is close to a deal with Apple.

Apple and Sony Music representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Licensing agreements with all four major labels will allow Apple to launch a fully licensed cloud-music service to rival unlicensed offerings of rivals Amazon and Google. Even though Google had been negotiating to obtain licenses from the four largest record companies for more than a year, the test version launched earlier this month without licensing agreements in place. Amazon employed the same strategy when it launched its cloud-music service in March.

Microsoft is offering a deal to students on the edge of summer.
Starting May 22, students who buy a new PC for $699 or more will receive a free Xbox 360 4GB console, the software giant said in a blog post today. 

The offer is available to online shoppers who buy a PC from Dell.com, HP.com, or Microsoft's online store. Those who want to head to a retail outlet can find the deal at Best Buy or Microsoft's stores.

In order for students to get the free Xbox 360, they will need to have .edu e-mail address at the time of purchase. If they don't have a .edu e-mail address, they can go to a retail store and present their student IDs.

Microsoft's Xbox 360 4GB console currently retails for $200. The hardware features built-in Wi-Fi and comes with a black Xbox 360 wireless controller. Those who want additional storage will need to buy a hard drive separately.
The Xbox 360 has been performing exceptionally well at retail as of late. According to research firm NPD, the software giant sold 297,000 Xbox 360 units in April and bested Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii. Microsoft said that the Xbox 360 has been the best-selling console in 10 of the last 11 months.

Microsoft's free Xbox 360 offer is valid through September 3, or while supplies last. The offer will be coming to Canada and France "soon," Microsoft said.

Windows Phone 7

Android and Windows Phone bookended the smartphone operating system market in the first quarter.
Market researcher Gartner said in a report released today that over 100 million smartphones were sold worldwide during the first quarter of 2011. Google's Android OS secured 36 percent of the market, with more than 36.2 million units sold to consumers during the period. Nokia's Symbian took the second spot, at 27.4 percent of the market and 27.6 million units sold. Apple's iOS platform and Research In Motion's BlackBerry came in third and fourth with 16.8 percent and 12.9 percent market share, respectively.
Microsoft found itself far behind the rest of the pack. According to Gartner, just 3.6 million smartphones using a Microsoft mobile OS were sold last quarter, for a 3.6 percent market share

When it comes to the attack on Sony's PlayStation Network, the only thing we're sure of is what we don't know: how it was done and who did it.

In the past four weeks since Sony shut down the gaming network, security researchers have been cobbling together theories of how someone broke into the PlayStation Network (PSN) and Sony Online Entertainment site, exposing personal data from more than 100 million accounts.

Security experts believe whoever was responsible exploited one or more security holes--but how they were exploited and who did it remains a bit of a mystery, despite a disputed to link to the loosely knitted hacking organization Anonymous.

Sony has said only that between April 17 and 19 an unauthorized person gained access to Sony's PSN servers in San Diego by hacking into an application server behind a Web server and two firewalls. The attack was disguised as a purchase, so it did not immediately raise any red flags, and the vulnerability exploited was known, according to Sony. A week and a half later, the company said that during its investigation into the PSN breach, it discovered that attackers may have also obtained data from the Sony Online Entertainment system. The network and online site were restored last weekend.

One of the most frustrating things in life is a slow computer.

Every few years, we buy an expensive new PC and love how fast it starts up, runs programs, and loads websites. Inevitably though, it starts to slow down until eventually we are pulling our hair out waiting for it to do routine tasks.

Why is this? It turns out the answer is actually quite simple and you don't even need to be "technical" to understand the causes and solutions.

The good news: It's not the computer hardware that's the problem. In most cases, the hardware you have is perfectly capable of being restored to its original glory and kept in fast running condition with minimal effort.

Rather, the problem lies with changes that occur to the PC's software. The two most common causes of slowdown (along with easy solutions) are:

1. The most common problem: registery errors

Every time you (or your kids) load a program, game, or file, your PC's software registery is updated with new instructions needed to operate that item. However, when the item is removed, these instructions usually remain on your PC. Every time you run your computer it tries to execute these instructions but, because the related program can't be found, it causes a registry error. Your PC is doing a lot more work than it should be and the result is a significantly slower computer.

One of the best ways to manage this is with a neat little tool from Support.com, a Silicon Valley based company. It's called ARO 2011 and it scans, identifies, and fixes registry errors--resulting in a computer that's a lot more like it was when you first bought it. On top of the amazing results it offers, it's so easy to install and use that it was recently awarded a coveted 4.5 star rating (out of 5) by CNET's editorial staff and has been downloaded more than 30 million times.

You can now get a free working version of the software which will quickly scan your entire PC and identify all of the registry errors that may be bogging it down. The free version also scans for junk and checks your PC's baseline security status. It will eliminate the first 100 errors for free, and if you have more errors that you want to clean up or want to set the program to run on a regular basis (which is recommended), you can easily upgrade to the full version for just $29.95. After that, registry errors will no longer be a problem.

To get the free version simply click here.

2. Spyware and viruses

Spyware and viruses are software programs that are loaded on your computer without your knowledge or permission. They have various purposes, including:

Changing the default search engine in your browser.
Tracking your Web surfing habits and showing you targeted advertising.
Using your email program to send out spam to other email addresses.
Stealing your personal information.

Most spyware and viruses get onto our computers through files that we download from the Internet or as attachments to emails. They tend to take up a lot of computing power and, as a result, will significantly slow down your computer.

The simple rule of thumb to follow is to never download any free software programs from companies you do not know and trust, especially screensavers, emoticons, and the like. In addition, you should never open any attachment to an email unless you are 100 percent certain you know and trust the sender. In addition, make sure you have a good anti-virus/spyware removal software running at all times.

Fabrice Bellard released a JavaScript program that can run Linux in a Web browser window.

Fabrice Bellard has released a JavaScript program that can run Linux in a Web browser window.

Step aside, Google Docs, there's a new JavaScript tour de force in town.

I'm talking about the latest project from programmer Fabrice Bellard, a JavaScript program that emulates an x86 processor fast enough to run Linux in a Web browser.

The JavaScript PC Emulator can do the work of an Intel 486 chip from the 1990s, but doesn't have a built-in floating point unit for numeric processing, Bellard said. Happily, Linux itself can emulate that, and a version of the operating system's core--2.6.20--runs on the foundation.

Bellard published a technical description of the JavaScript PC Emulator on Saturday, but today the project caught the notice of prominent techies, including Brendan Eich, a Mozilla programmer and the creator of JavaScript.

"I did it for fun, just because newer JavaScript engines are fast enough to do complicated things," Bellard said of the project. "I happen to be interested by the implementation of JavaScript engines these days--but I don't know yet if I will write my own any time soon! Anyway, this emulator was a way to learn how to write optimized code for recent JavaScript engines, in particular JaegerMonkey (for Firefox 4) and V8 (for Chrome)."

Bellard suggests some possibilities for more serious use, including benchmarks or running old DOS games. But probably the project's biggest practical repercussion is simply the news that JavaScript has matured enough to run an entire computer-within-a-computer.

Curious people can try the emulator with a modern browser that has fast JavaScript performance; it works with Firefox 4 but not newer versions of Google Chrome. And those who really want to dig in can look at the JavaScript PC Emulator's actual JavaScript code.

The project is the latest attention-getter from Bellard. The French programmer also wrote QEMU, software that can emulate one type of processor on another; FFmpeg, open-source software for playing and otherwise handling video and audio streams; QEmacs, a lightweight text editor for Unix systems; digital TV signal generator software that uses a computer's VGA card to broadcast TV over the air; Linmodem, Linux software that emulates a hardware modem chip; and a program that calculated pi to a then-record 2,699,999,990,000 digits using a mere personal computer.

Bellard also is a two-time winner of the Obfuscated C competition to produce clever but superficially incomprehensible programs in the C language.

Microsoft will make at least four different versions of Windows 8 for devices with ARM processors, but you won't be running older Windows apps on any them, according to an Intel executive. Renee James, Intel's senior vice president and general manager of Software and Services Group, also reaffirmed that Windows running on ARM devices will be focused on tablets and other mobile devices, according to Bloomberg.

Version Fatigue

If you thought Microsoft produced too many versions of Windows 7 or Vista, it sounds like you haven't seen anything yet. It's too early to know for sure how Microsoft will package Windows 8, but it's unlikely the company will give up on offering six different of its trademark OS as it has with both Windows 7 and Vista. Add to that version mix four variations for ARM tablets and possibly netbooks, and you've got a recipe for confusion for the non-techie consumer.

Legacy Apps

Since ARM's architecture is different from Windows' x86 roots with Intel, it's not surprising that legacy apps wouldn't be available on the new devices. But legacy issues are usually a bigger problem for businesses than home users. So unless you're hoping to run Microsoft Word 2007 on an ARM-based netbook, you may not have to worry too much. Enterprises, on the other hand, may be less likely to use an ARM-based version of Windows if they have custom-designed legacy software; however, it's also possible third parties would come up with a legacy emulator for ARM devices if Microsoft doesn't.

ARM vs. x86

James said Intel isn't worried about competing against another chip design in the Windows universe -- basically Intel's exclusive turf for the past 20 years. Intel's x86 architecture will support both new and old Windows programs on Windows 8, and run on everything from Windows-based mobile devices to televisions and PCs, according to the Register.
Intel also knows it can't depend on Microsoft and the PC to guarantee the chipmaker's future. Intel chief executive Otellini recently said his company had overhauled its roadmap to meet the growing demand for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. Despite the popularity of its Atom chips for netbooks, Intel's current processors are considered too power hungry to guarantee the long battery life that newer mobile devices require. ARM processor designs, on the other hand, are being used on a variety of mobile devices such as Apple's iPad and iPhone as well as numerous Android devices.
It's not clear what Microsoft has in store for Windows 8, but current rumors suggest Windows 8 for mobile devices will include an interface based on elements of Windows Phone 7's Metro UI.
Microsoft in April demoed an early version of Internet Explorer 10 running on an ARM device.

Ann Althouse is US law professor who, since 2004, has written a blog commentating on everything from law and politics to popular culture. She’s never been shy about giving her opinion.
In the aftermath of Ann Althouse giving her ‘objective’ analysis of the Wisconsin protests, she complained that her entire Google-hosted blog had been brought down. She even set up a second Blogger account for “if Blogger ever shuts me out of my usual place”.
So, some have argued that Ann Althouse’s anti-Administration stance has led to her site being brought down.
By some, I’m referring here to Patterico in particular, a pseudo-anonymous commentator who had openly criticized Google for its handling of the Althouse situation.
He notes that he, his guest blogger Aaron Worthing plus a number of other people who had criticized an anonymous moderator on a Google.com support thread were subsequently locked out of their Gmail accounts. And all had been asked to supply their cell phone numbers to help gain access again.
Google-Locked-Out-of-GmailPatterico also recorded a thread on Google Help where Ann Althouse was seeking help to get her blog up and running again, and this moderator went by the pseudonym of Nitecruzr.
Google Help Thread
According to Patterico, one of Nitecruzr’s powers lets him/her flag people’s Google accounts as spam. Something which apparently happened on this occasion to a number of users who had waded into the debate to support Ann Althouse.
Now, it’s really difficult to know what has happened here. On the one hand, Ann Althouse is an open, well respected blogger and, moreover, a law professor. The fact that her blog was pulled after her stance in defence of the Wisconsin protesters may seem a little odd.
And the same goes for Patterico and the other folk who were locked out of their Google accounts after criticizing a moderator on Google Help.
But what are we supposed to deduce from all this? Everyone is looking at this case thinking that Google has pulled the plug on anyone it simply doesn’t like. And if that is the case, we should all be very afraid.
However, political bloggers are likely to have many enemies – in the open and in the shadows. Maybe her account was hacked and someone did start spamming from it, which thus caused Google to take it down.
As for Patterico and Co., it sounds like they really got on the wrong side of Nitecruzr who was acting on behalf of Google.
It’s really difficult to say what has actually happened here. The Internet is global (pardon my truism), so Google can’t employ millions of staff to help manage all its products, so it does have to rely on the community to help moderate and support, so perhaps it needs to monitor its moderators a little more closely.
And perhaps more importantly, maybe people shouldn’t rely on Google to host all of their services? If Google does decide to pull the plug on your Google account for whatever reason, then you do lose everything – Gmail, Docs, Reader, Blogger…you name it. At the time of writing, Ann Althouse’s archive is still down, though she is posting again from her main account. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out.
Google has responded to these claims, and has sought to clarify some of the concerns raised. An official spokesperson told The Next Web:
“Top contributors’ only additional privileges are the ability to delete posts in the forums – which Nitecruzr did not do in this instance – and escalate posts of a technical nature for the Google team to investigate further; for instance, when Blogger was experiencing issues last week, top contributors could escalate posts from users who were experiencing related problems, which was the case for Prof. Althouse. We are looking into the issue of folks’ Google accounts being flagged, and again we’re very sorry for any inconvenience.”
With further direct reference to Professor Althouse, the Google spokesperson said:
“We’re deeply sorry for the inconvenience to Prof. Althouse. As we have said on our blog and communicated directly to Prof. Althouse, last week during scheduled maintenance we experienced data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. We’ve been working as fast as we can and making progress restoring all remaining posts. As of yesterday evening we have restored all posts for the vast majority of Blogger users, with the exception of some blogs with a lot of content that are taking a little longer. We’ll provide an update and full incident report as soon as everything is back to normal for everyone.”
It’s worth noting that Ann Althouse did have over twenty thousand blog posts dating back 7 years, so it seems that her blog is taking slightly longer to restore than other blogs that were down. And Google also confirmed that it was “reviewing nitecruzr’s privileges on the forums following this incident.”
Apple CEO Steve Jobs recently roused some criticism for declaring the iPad to be the harbinger of a "post-PC" era. Market research firms seem to disagree with Jobs' proclamation; Gartner thinks he may be right, suggesting tablets are eating into PC sales, while NPD thinks slow PC sales have nothing to do with iPads. Forrester Research analyst Sarah Rotman Epps believes the transition started happening long ago, but the combination of advances in mobile technology, the increasing ubiquity of WiFi and mobile broadband, and consumers' increasing reliance on conducting official and personal business online means computing happens more and more with tablets and smartphones and less with a bulky desktop chained to a desk.

While popular wisdom seems to suggest that PCs will suddenly disappear as consumers flock to touchscreen tablets, Epps sees users using more kinds of computing devices which suit the given place and time. "Consumers own an increasing number of devices, including PCs, and they get very good at making tradeoffs in particular contexts," Epps told Ars. "79.3 million US consumers own three or more types of connected devices; eight million own eight or more types of connected devices," she said.

Epps, who focuses primarily on consumer product strategy, recently authored a report titled "What the Post-PC Era Really Means," in which she lays down an illumnating commentary on the current and future computing landscape. Jobs' reference to "post-PC" isn't new—Intel has been trying to usher in the era since at least 2005, and Ars has written about efforts from Microsoft, NVIDIA, and others to transition to a post-PC world since. Nor is post-PC a useless buzzword. "The post-PC era is real," Epps wrote in the report, "and its consequences will revolutionize computing product strategy."

The problem is that defining what post-PC really means is a lot more complex than suggesting tablets are in and PCs are out. There's a lot of life left in the PC business, Epps told Ars, even as tablets and smartphones increasingly grab consumer mindshare and dollars.

"The laptop form factor persists, for instance, but they start to act more like smartphones—flash memory, more sensors, and 'apps,'" Epps said, noting the popularity of the MacBook Air and Sony VAIO Z ultraportables. "Towers are still relevant for small businesses, professional users, gamers, and value-focused consumers. We're also seeing growth in the all-in-one category, because consumers like big screens."

What defines the post-PC era are shifts in four fundamental qualities that Epps identified as particular to traditional PC computing. Namely, traditional PC use was stationary, formal, at arms length, and relied on abstracted interaction. A user sat down in a particular spot, usually a desk, for a pre-defined period of time, and used a computer by entering text via a keyboard or manipulation abstracted symbols via a mouse.

Post-PC computing, in contrast, is ubiquitous, casual, intimate, and physical. Devices are always on and always at the ready, used increasingly for various combinations of work and personal use, used as much in the living room as the bedroom, and rely on close physical interactions (think fingers on a touchscreen, but that could change in the future to facial recognition via a Kinect-like input).

This transition has been happening over the last decade, as users become reliant on online services—imagine not being able to check Google Maps to find your way to a distant location, consult Yelp for the nearest source of burritos, or transfer funds from savings to checking right from a web browser. WiFi and mobile broadband untethered such activities from the desk, and smartphones freed them further by putting them in your pocket. And the increasingly blurred line between work life and home life has created new generations of users that expect to shop for a CD on Amazon or analyze the latest quarterly sales figures pretty much any time of the day.

While these factors make it clear that we are indeed living in a post-PC world, PCs won't disappear overnight—no matter how many millions of iPads Apple sells in any given quarter. Cloud services will need to expand and offer better reliability. Mobile broadband networks still have areas of poor or no coverage. And some users will simply find a laptop or desktop suits their needs better than mobile devices, while others will use multiple devices—a laptop in the den, a tablet in the bedroom, and a smartphone in the pocket.

"In the post-PC era, the 'PC' is alive and well, but it morphs to support computing experiences that are increasingly ubiquitous, casual, intimate, and physical," Epps wrote. In other words, PCs will happily co-exist with mobile devices like tablets for the time being. While tablet buyers may not be buying new PCs in the next 6-12 months, users will hold on to their current PCs which work "well enough."

You can expect vendors to expend increasingly more time and effort into building "curated computing" devices that target specific needs with increasingly mobile and specialized form factors. And one day, our kids will mock a "PC" collecting dust in a corner of the basement. While we are already living in a post-PC world full of iPhones and Droids and Xooms, that day isn't quite here yet.

iPhone 4s, es según apuntan algunos medios como CNET, una próxima actualización del actual modelo iPhone 4 que desde hace 1 año se encuentra a la venta.

En cuanto a las posibles mejoras que Apple podría introducir en el iPhone 4s, se especula con un procesador A5 de doble núcleo, soporte HSPA y mejoras respecto al polémico problema de la antena, además de otos pequeños detalles con los que despertar la atención e interés de los consumidores.

Todo apunta que durante la conferencia Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2011, a celebrar el próximo 6 de junio, podremos confirmar definitivamente si el iPhone 4s se convertiría en el predecesor del iPhone 5.

Según las mismas informaciones no oficiales, la posible llegada de la actualización de la cuarta generación del teléfono inteligente de Apple (iPhone 4s) podría retrasar la aparición del esperado iPhone 5 hasta el verano de 2012.
El CEO de Nvidia siempre se ha mostrado muy activo en sus declaraciones, pero ahora que se mueve en el terreno de los teléfonos y las tablets parece que hace más ruido. Hace un par de días compartíamos varias de sus impresiones acerca del mundo de las tablets a raíz de una entrevista en Cnet.

Parece que se quedó con ganas de contar más cosas, y aprovechando una conferencia sobre tecnología organizada por Reuters, Jen-Hsun Huang informó que necesitarán al menos dos años y medio para quitarle la hegemonía de las tablets a Apple.

Apple tiene una gran ventaja en el mercado, por golpear primero y por hacerlo con un producto muy bueno, por lo que será difícil quitarle su posición en 2012 y 2013. El CEO predice que se conseguirá de forma casi natural, como se ha hecho con los Smartphones, que empezó de forma lenta con el T-Mobile G1, y el resto de la historia ya la conocéis.
Nvidia Tegra 3 tiene 10 novios

Como no iba a ser de otra forma, el CEO aprovechó para publicitar un poco su tecnología, informando que su Nvidia Tegra 3 no sólo llegará a tablets, sino que habrá teléfonos con él, acercando un poco más las posturas con Google y su Nexus 3. Para el que tenga dudas de su aceptación, actualmente hay 10 fabricantes importantes con pedidos realizados.

De esos diez, cinco pertenecen al mundo de los dispositivos móviles, y otros cinco al de los ordenadores, que aunque en algunos casos suelen solaparse y actuar en ambos mercados, es interesante conocer que hay interés. Por lo pronto sabemos que ASUS es uno de ellos.

Debemos recordar que Windows en su próxima iteración tendrá soporte ARM, y un chipset de cuatro núcleos, más barato y eficiente que las arquitecturas X86, puede resultar muy interesante para esos fabricantes de ordenadores.
