Security firm RSA attacked using Excel-Flash one-two sucker punch (Download Squad)

Apr 6th 2011 2:17PM How ironic that one of the world's largest security firms was hacked. This makes me sad.

Internet Explorer and Safari first to fall at Pwn2Own 2011, Chrome and Firefox still standing (Download Squad)

Mar 10th 2011 1:55PM I'm kind of anxious to see how IE9 would hold up. Man, and it's only four days until release... *sigh* Guess I'll have to wait until next year's Pwn2Own to see.

Google releases Android anti-fragmentation kit (Download Squad)

Mar 4th 2011 4:49PM @billobob Still wouldn't matter since Android apps have to be built for a specific platform (not only the version of Android, but also the screen resolution, among other things).

Final Firefox 4 beta released, add-ons still languishing (Download Squad)

Feb 26th 2011 4:58PM @Sebastian Anthony I wish you guys would just use Disqus like your sister site Engadget does. It's a great platform! Single sign-in across sites, very powerful management/monitoring for admins, and the fact that it doesn't scatter comment replies across the comments section all sound like a win to me.

Microsoft will release Internet Explorer 9 on March 14 at SXSW (Download Squad)

Feb 19th 2011 5:33PM @SilverWave Oddly enough, I remember reading that IE8 was the most secure.

Microsoft Insider app introduces users to Windows Phone 7 (Download Squad)

Feb 4th 2011 4:45PM @SilverWave They will. And don't call me Shirley. And, as for your first comment, this will be useful for non-techy people just moving up to smartphones. It's not that they're admitting it's not intuitive, it's that some people need a little help with all technology, so why not help them out?

Hotmail now offers disposable email via aliases (Download Squad)

Feb 3rd 2011 8:46PM @nomadica Correct. This update allows you to use a completely different e-mail address rather than just use a "+" address.

Acrobat Reader X delivers on security promise (Download Squad)

Feb 3rd 2011 3:06PM @mer2329 I'm actually very pleased with Reader X. I wish they would stop using that damn download manager to get it, or offer and easy-to-find offline installer (they do, but you have to go on an expedition to find it), but it's performance is actually quite solid. I would say it's on par with Foxit Reader. I switched back because I was tired of Foxit's buggy Firefox plugin, and I haven't even thought of going back. I'm quite shocked at what Adobe pulled off!

Netflix removes 'add to DVD queue' from streaming devices (Download Squad)

Jan 17th 2011 4:23PM I think that's kind of stupid. I like being able to simply click "add to DVD queue" on my console. That means I don't have to go online and find the movie I wanted to watch that was DVD only and add it to my queue. Maybe a smarter idea would be to remove the button from shows that stream instantly and keep it there for shows that are DVD only.
