In the past, you would often associate Microsoft with a less than ideal track record that is only made worse by the virus infestation on its line of Windows operating systems. Code named Morro, Security Essentials merges the anti-spyware capabilities of Windows Defender (also developed by Microsoft) with newly introduced anti-virus measures, aiming to bring light to PC users who are in need of a freeware alternative. Independent testing done by those such as AV-Comparative suggest that it is among reputable performers such as Avast or Avira. Though the lack of advanced options might frustrate power users,  it is still recommended as a worthy competitor to proprietary anti-virus products.

It looks like our friends over at the UK are up to no good with this commercial by Cadbury. One can assume this is not real talent, but if it were i’d be darned if they didn’t vote for the duo should they make it onto the X factor.

As far as moue gestures go, most of us are only aware of such things in touchpads or not at all. Luckily with gMote, anyone can now create mouse gestures which movements initiated by moving you mouse and then corresponding to a command. Such features aren’t new in this day and age of high-tech gadgets, as it is first implemented by Apple as well as the Opera browser. Now what truly distinguish this from other gesture software is its pure simplicity over complication. Simply drag the mouse in any direction or freedraw shapes to your desire, save what you’ve just done as a command , automatically prompting the application to recognize it the next time you initiate the same mouse movements. With some carefully orchestrated commands, even the most computer illiterate can make good use of intuitive interactions with their PC.
