  4. Toshiba Satellite Click 2 review: Bulky as a laptop; bulkier as a tabletTue, 02 Sep 2014 03:00:00 -0700

This makes sense when you're talking about a detachable 10- or 11-inch screen, but how does it play with sizes you wouldn't normally associate with a tablet?

The Click 2 is simply monstrous, weighing nearly three pounds despite being just over half an inch thick. Windows 8.1 is well suited to touchscreens, and 13.3 inches of screen allows for a big onscreen keyboard thats pleasant to type on (if only the physical keyboard was as good).To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

    While conducting a penetration test of a major Canadian retailer, Rob VandenBrink bought something from the store. He later found his own credit card number buried in its systems, a major worry.The retailer, which has hundreds of stores across Canada, otherwise had rock-solid security and was compliant with the security guidelines known as the Payment Card Industrys Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS), said VandenBrink, a consultant with the IT services company Metafore.But a simple configuration error allowed him to gain remote access.
