Spent a few minutes with Jack Heath doing a quick overview of online shopping. What are some of the best sites out there? We talked about a couple, and of course the standard tips. There is a new one out there.

Beware of online shopping sites including Pandora. It's amazing what the bad guys have been able to accomplish. You'd think they'd be able to take those talents in and maybe make some money legitimately.

Joined Jim today for another tech talk, and shared a quick story on security.
 
Back in 1991, learned it the hard way when I got a wake-up call that the internet wasn't as friendly as it was when it started. A worm attacked my system. And, although it wasn't something that will take down the business, I knew I had to do something about it.
 
Home users and small businesses are being attacked every day. If they are not well equipped or have no one to turn to, their systems become compromised.
