[] Acronis True Image free for Maxtor, Seagate users (From ozrom1e) by MrDonK! July 20, 2007, 06:34:49 AM
Acronis True Image free for Maxtor, Seagate users

 

"Acronis can be obtained free if you have a Maxtor or Seagate hard drive.

 

The important thing to note, however, is that both utilities are based on an OEM version of Acronis's well-regarded True Image backup application. According to the Inquirer's report, both free utilities support the creation of disk images, partitions, the cloning and formatting of disks, and more.

 

Inquirer's report:

 

One of the best HDD utilities is free

Seagate provides Two free downloadable utilities at the following links:

[] LENOVA Superfish Bug by Mr.Victor February 19, 2015, 12:38:46 PM
It was recently discovered that LENOVA Laptop/Notebooks sold between September 2014 and January 2015, contain the Superfish bug. Superfish is a form of malicious adware that exposes Lenovo users to man-in-the-middle attacks, similar to those opened up by Heartbleed. Armed with a hacked password and the right software, a coffee shop owner could potentially spy on any Lenovo user on her network, collecting any other login passwords entered during the session. In theory the evil barista could also insert malware into the data stream at will, disguised as a software update or a trusted site. Internet Explorer and Chrome could be affected by this, while Firefox is currently safe thanks to its independent certificate repository. The following affected models have now been identified :

E-Series:
 E10-30

Flex-Series:
 Flex2 14, Flex2 15, Flex2 14D, Flex2 15D, Flex2 Pro, Flex 10

G-Series:
 G410, G510, G710, G40-30, G40-45, G40-70, G40-80, G50-50, G50-45, G50-70, G50-80, G50-80Touch

Lenovo Edge 15

Miix-Series:
 Miix2 8, Miix2 10, Miix2 11, Miix 3 1030

S-Series:
 S310, S410, S415, S415 Touch, S435, S20-30, S20-30 Touch, S40-70

U-Series:
 U330P, U430P, U330 Touch, U430 Touch, U540 Touch

Y-Series:
 Y430P, Y40-70, Y40-80, Y50-70, Y70-70

Yoga-Series:
 Yoga2-11, Yoga2-13, Yoga2Pro-13, Yoga3 Pro

Z-Series:
 Z40-70, Z40-75, Z50-70, Z50-75, Z70-80

[] $15 Pentium 4 Refund by Mr.Victor November 03, 2014, 08:12:31 AM
You could be eligible for a $15 refund from Intel, if you bought a Pentium 4 PC over 10 years ago?

...but you won't need a receipt !
 
So why the cashback? A class action lawsuit contends that Intel and HP manipulated benchmark scores to give the first generation Pentium 4 processor favorable results over its rivals AMD Athlon offering back in the day. Intel and HP deny these claims, but both parties have decided to reach the lawsuit settlement.  Per the pending class action settlement, customers who purchased a new computer for personal use equipped with an Intel Pentium 4 processor between November 20, 2000 and December 31, 2001 or a first-generation Pentium 4 (Williamette) processor at speeds below 2GHz between January 1, 2002 and June 30, 2002 may be entitled to a $15 refund.
