Additionally, I don't live in Orange County. I also don't have a father who works at IBM. Strange...

You just ruined someone you don't know!

dteichman2 writes "A study by McAfee (covered at PC World) states that searches for P2P clients and music downloads have a high chance of leading you into a spyware/adware/spam trap. McAfee found that these types of searches resulted in 35-50% 'risky' results. It does seem, however, that their study fails to consider search rankings.

Considering that the study was done by the sellers of popular anti-virus software, please add salt by taste. If you find yourself searching for things like 'music downloads,' 'screensavers,' 'bearshare,' 'Kazaa,' and 'Limewire,' this might be a good time to Get Firefox."

dteichman2 (841599) writes "While regulators investigate the Internet's impact on young people, China will not be licensing any new Internet cafes. Investigators will evaluate cafes and look for those that improperly rent out their licenses or fail to properly register the identities of customers. Government authorities worry that the Web may provide children with access to gambling sites, sexually explicit material, and violent video games. Chinese President Hu Jintao has ordered officials to clean up 'Internet culture.'"

dteichman2 writes "According to the Firefox 3 Schedule (page down at time of writing, Google cache), the code was frozen last night and the official release announcement for Gran Paradiso alpha 5 will take place tomorrow. Of course, since the code's frozen, it's all ready to go for you bleeding-edgers (Mozilla pub FTP). At first glance, it seems relatively stable... just don't click an extension link twice."

dteichman2 writes "It appears that UK schools are ignoring The Holocaust. A government-backed study, funded by the Department for Education and Skills, found that some teachers are reluctant to teach history lessons on The Holocaust for fear of offending Muslim students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial. As such, many schools are not covering the subject. Additionally, similar problems are being met with lessons on The Crusades because these lessons contradict teachings from local mosques.

Isn't there a law that requires UK schools to cover these topics? Should there be?"
