Dario D's ideas for how Windows 8 screens should look

'Dario D.' has written an article that shows how he would redesign the new Windows 8 screens. The screen shots of his concepts look great and certainly look better than the new "Metro" screens that the pre-release version of Windows 8 developer edition has shown us. Take a look at his site. Thanks Dario for sending me the screen shots!

For more information, please see his article here: http://www.alphaila.com/articles/failure/windows-8-concept-dariod/

Mozilla is advising users of its Firefox browser to disable McAfee's ScriptScan software, saying that it could cause "stability or security problems." Script scan is part of the new McAfee antivirus program version 14.4.0. Mozilla says that users are strongly encouraged to disable the problematic add-on or plugin, but may choose to continue using it if they accept the risks. This affect all versions of Firefox and SeaMonkey.
