It’s getting a bit repetitive, but scammers continue to exploit FacebookFacebook reviews with very formulaic phishing scams that more or less do the same thing.
Today’s is from a site called “Areps.at,” and like other scams before it (see FBAction.net, FBStarter.com, etc), it simply asks for you to input your Facebook username and password, with a design that looks similar to that of Facebook.
Don’t give this site your information. If you do, it will proceed to send all of your friends a message telling them to go to Areps.at, and hence, the scam will continue to spread like wildfire.
Google internet services were "down" this morning for approximately 2 hrs. This service outage affected customers worldwide, and has since been remedied.

You may not know it but we’ve recently upgraded our Blackberry Enterprise Server to a newer version with enhanced features. Most importantly the new version has enhanced attachment support. Here’s some of the key features you receive when getting your email through APR’s Blackberry Server.
ENHANCED ATTACHMENT SUPPORT
You can now open the following attachment types on your Blackberry with no additional third party software:
*Microsoft Office Documents – DOC, XLS, PPT,RTF,DOT (Including Office 2007)
*Various graphic files JPG, TIF, GIF,BMP,PNG
*HTM and HTML Hotlinks
ENAHNCED IDENTITY PROTECTION AND SECURITY
With other “Smart Phones” including the iPhone if your phone is lost or stolen whomever ends up with it can access all of your personal data including emails, calendar, and contacts with a few publicly available software hacking programs!
Blackberry Enterprise Software has another feature that already exists that you may not know about. If you are a member of APR’s Blackberry Enterprise server and your phone is lost or stolen APR can protect your phone and you from identity theft. If this happens, notify APR IT immediately. We can lock the phone, change its password, prevent outbound phone calls, and even delete all personal data from the device if needed. This not only protects YOU, but protects YOUR CLIENTS’ personal information from being stolen and solicited or worse!
Lately I've been showing more and more people how to use keyboard shortcuts to get things done faster on their computer. Keyboard shortcuts can really help you work a
lot faster if you've got some memorized. Here's a "couple" that I always find really useful. I encourage everyone to try some of them out.
General folder/Windows Explorer shortcuts
For a selected object:
F2: Rename object
CTRL + P: Print
SHIFT+DELETE: Delete selection immediately, without moving the item to the Recycle Bin
ALT+ENTER: Open the properties for the selected object
Windows Key (Windows logo) + M: Minimize all open windows
Windows system key combinations
CTRL+ESC: Open Start menu
ALT+TAB: Switch between open programs
ALT+F4: Quit program
SHIFT+DELETE: Delete item permanently
Windows program key combinations ( Word, Excel, etc)
RSS (the most common translation is now “Really Simple Syndication”) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works-such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video-in a standardized format.
What this does is allow people to “subscribe” to specified sites that will then give you up to the date information or “live” feeds of information. The most common RSS Feeds are “News” or “Blogs” When someone posts a new topic it will be picked up and shown through the RSS Feed almost immediately.
These can be helpful to just “browse” through the main subjects, instead of having to read an entire article. RSS Feeds basically give a summary of the information to make it easier and more convenient to read.
