The crew at HotHardware has put together a guide to migrating to Windows 10. Definitely worth a look if you haven't made the jump yet.
The upgrade cycle begins, with Microsoft’s latest operating system--the highly anticipated Windows 10--rolling out over Windows Update for free, for users of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. For those that are ready to take the plunge over the weekend, there are some things to note. While this guide is by no means exhaustive, there are some useful reminders here as well as some potential pitfalls that may rear their ugly head during the upgrade process.
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii have made independent confirmations of an exoplanet orbiting far from its central star. The planet was discovered through a technique called gravitational microlensing.
We appreciate that it’s still technically possible to preserve people’s previous settings and defaults, but the design of the whole upgrade experience and the default settings APIs have been changed to make this less obvious and more difficult. It now takes more than twice the number of mouse clicks, scrolling through content and some technical sophistication for people to reassert the choices they had previously made in earlier versions of Windows. It’s confusing, hard to navigate and easy to get lost.
I know I shouldn't laugh at stuff like this, but watching these guys turn on each other is hilarious.
"As a result of this and a number of other confidential issues I don’t trust Mega anymore. I don’t think your data is safe on Mega anymore. But my non-compete clause is running out at the end of the year and I will create a Mega competitor that is completely open source and non-profit, similar to the Wikipedia model," Dotcom says. "I want to give everyone free, unlimited and encrypted cloud storage with the help of donations from the community to keep things going."
Google originally asked for $4 billion. Courts only give them $1.8 million. Google appeals. In the process, Microsoft is awarded $14.5 million for breach of contract. Appeals court rules against Google. Considering we haven't even calculated attorney fees yest, Google probably should have just taken a pass on this one.
After a 2012 trial, U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle said the appropriate royalty rate was $1.8 million, far less than Motorola’s demand for as much as $4 billion a year. A jury later found Motorola in breach of contract. Google appealed the verdict and the royalty rate to the 9th Circuit.
Net Neutrality. The internet as a public utility. Hooray? The FCC is already receiving a lot of complaints from customers that are sick of data caps, slow speeds and possibly uncompetitive prices. According to the National Journal, a lot of the ire has been directed at a predictable list of offenders: AT&T, Comcast and Verizon -- a company that now owns AOL.

Another review of the Intel Core i7 5775C processor has hit the internet today. This time around it is the crew at Overclockers Club doing the reviewing.
That being said, Intel left some meat on the bone for the enthusiast when it came time to overclock the Core i7 5775C. A speed of 4.1GHz was not a problem for this core with nothing more than bumping the core clock multiplier to 41. Sweet and simple with nothing else needed.

The situation can be improved with stronger threat intelligence, the addition of behavior profiling and better analytics." Additionally, the report highlights that "during 2014, the SIEM market grew from $1.5 billion to approximately $1.69 billion, achieving a growth rate of about 14%. The primary drivers that were in place at the start of 2014 remain in effect. Threat management is the primary driver, and compliance remains a secondary driver."
