Yes you saw it right. When I too came to know of the news I too was as shocked and surprised as you are right now reading this.

I have been watching a lot of TV off late and as a result the time that I spend on reading paper has come down drastically. Previously I used to read a lot but now with internet and TV I hardly find time to go through it. Mostly Read the front page news and sports and sometimes business because I feel that I can gather more info from TV and net but that changed today after reading an article on Srilanka by Arundhathi Roy.

These are bad times. Don’t think anyone would disagree with me on that line. Recession is everywhere, people losing jobs everyday and companies taking cost cutting seriously and it’s only going to get worse. But as they say there is a ray of hope at the end of the tunnel there is some good news for those who have been given the pink slips and those who are jobless.
Viruses, malware, spyware, Trojans are only some of the threats that your computer faces while you are happily browsing sites and downloading stuff. Those of you who have good antiviruses can reduce this risk but they cannot totally overcome it. Having just a good antivirus is not enough you need to back it up with a good anitspyware program and a firewall to go with it. With all this you cut out the risk by almost 95 %.

I got a mail few months back from a friend asking me to join Twitter. I didn’t know what it was at that time but joined it. Now I know why it is so popular with my friends and also with the people around the Globe. Twitter is another way to expose your self to the world via the web, just like myspace, facebook and many other sites, so if you want to get your name out and expose your uniqueness, then go for it.
