| Millions of Users Still on Windows XP |
Apr 20, 2015 - 6:19 AM - by Jack1000 |
Found this article interesting, |
Assuming one practices safe-surfing online, has an up-to-date anti-virus, doesn't use IE 8, (The highest MS browser allowed on Windows XP,) maintains a secure encrypted wireless network, perhaps an external Firewall, how safe or at risk, are they with Windows XP?
I think people don't want Windows 8, can't get new Windows 7 anymore, so they feel stuck, in a rut. Or at least XP works fine for them.
Is the community still seeing a lot of XP machines in use?

| Google speeds up data transfers with Quick UDP Internet connections |
Apr 19, 2015 - 7:12 PM - by TechSocial |
In June 2013, Google announced an experimental way to speed up web connections using what it calls QUIC, or Quick UDP Internet Connections. Now, the company says it has boosted the traffic its servers provide using QUIC and the results are promising. |
Instead of using the internet standard TCP and TLS approach, QUIC can reduce page load time and buffering because it requires fewer back-and-forth conversations between clients and a server. What's the secret sauce? QUIC establishes its connection with lower latency, particuarly for devices that connected to a particular web server or service in the past, says Google:
The standard way to do secure web browsing involves communicating over TCP + TLS, which requires 2 to 3 round trips with a server to establish a secure connection before the browser can request the actual web page. QUIC is designed so that if a client has talked to a given server before, it can can start sending data without any round trips, which makes web pages load faster.
