Financial identity theft
Talk about financial identity theft and the first thing that comes to mind is credit card theft. Lose your credit card and you may find that an unknown someone is running up some hefty bills that you may end up paying off. IRS identity theft is another identity theft risk that you should ward yourself against very carefully because this could have you losing out tax refunds, being called upon to pay huge tax outstandings and penalties that you do not owe and even attract legal action from the IRS for non-payment of taxes. One common starting point for IRS identity theft is the theft of your social security number, which is then used to file tax returns in your name.
Driver’s license identity theft
Considering that you carry it around practically all the time, the chance that you might lose your driver’s license or have it stolen is rather high. The point is that, if you do, things can get pretty messy for you. Usually, the stolen driver’s ID is ‘sold’ off to someone who looks reasonably similar to you (or your picture on the ID). If they are pulled over for a traffic violation, it is your driver’s ID that is shown to the cops. The violations go on your driving record, reducing your chances of getting cheap auto insurance and even putting you at risk of getting your license suspended.
Remember that the thief or whoever ‘buys’ your driver’s license can also hand it out wherever they need to show ID and that means, if they are caught carrying out any illegal activities, the authorities may end up looking for you instead.
Medical identity theft
Lose your medical identity and you are sure to face an uphill task fixing the many consequences that can emerge from this type of identity theft. Typically, medical identity is stolen so that the thief can access medical insurance coverage that you are entitled to or access substances or medications that may not be easily available or even treatment for substance abuse or psychiatric conditions. The repercussions of medical identity loss are manifold and not limited to mere monetary loss.
The financial consequences can range from you losing your insurance to having your insurance costs escalated dramatically. The non-financial repercussions include the entry of incorrect information, that pertains to the identity thief, in your medical records. This can cause a lot of confusion for physicians who treat you for medical conditions and it can even result in some drastic misdiagnosis and wrong treatment because your medical record actually shows data that is not relevant to you at all.
Knowing the different ways in which you may be at risk of literally and figuratively ‘losing your identity’ allows you to protect yourself better. You should also read up on how to report identity theft so that you can act quickly and start damage control measures as soon you are aware of the loss.

Just the idea of making money at home brings, to many peoples' minds, mowing lawns or handyman work. Something they can do while not having to report, every day, into an office or burger shop for a normal shift. It certainly can mean oiling up the Briggs and Straton or paying a visit to the hardware store, if that appeals to you. To many people, today, though, the issue is to find ways to earn money from home online. To make money at home, then, means something a bit different than it did 25 years ago.
But no matter what it is that you decide to do at home to make that money, you need a plan. One of the concepts that have helped to create more millionaires in the last 20 years than all other industries combined, is Affiliate Marketing. Just to refresh your memory, if that is needed, about what affiliate marketing is, we should take a quick tour of the basics of this great program.
An Affiliate Marketing Future Is What You Make Of It
Affiliate Marketing is the ability to make money, or decisions, by selling someone else's stuff! There are so many things that other people, or rather the owners of the product, offer you a commission for simply promoting their product to others. This is done through quite a number of ways, all of them designed to assist the visitor in making the right choice and clicking on the owner's sales page. The page should be good enough to make them buy, sign up or whatever it is they need to do to make you some money!
This means getting the product or service out in front of people who may be interested. This, more often than not, means a website or blog. The key here is to ensure you have found enough people who are interested in the idea of the product you are promoting.
For example, people who own dogs might want to train them by themselves so they do not have to pay someone else to do it. You have access to a dog training e-book and membership website that will help these dog owners do just that. You design and build a website or blog that tells your visitors about all of the important elements of dog training, along with some tips about dog training.
The information you provide is helpful but does not give away the store, so to speak. You give them just enough information that they know they need additional help. That is when you mention the e-book you are promoting so they can take advantage of it. When they click through and buy and / or sign up for the membership, you get the commission.
In order to make money at home, you need to help other people get what they need and want.

You may be one of the millions of fans of the ultra popular PC game Black Ops. You may also have heard of issues playing this game on computers, wherein for no obvious reason Black Ops will suddenly run slowly and lag after just a few minutes of being loaded. This unfortunately is considered to be a complaint among gamers all over the world. This problem is caused either by a computer's failure to properly read certain hardware in the system or some damaged settings in the PC. Fortunately, this problem is easy to fix simply by following the troubleshooting steps outlined in this tutorial.
Why Will Black Ops Lag / Run Slower?
There are many probable reasons as to why Black Ops runs slow and even freezes on your PC. It can be caused by external factors such as a slow Internet connection. On the other hand, internal variables include slow processing speed, corrupted registry, incompatibility graphical interfaces, and hardware issues. To guarantee that Black Ops is running at an optimum speed on your computer, you need to use the correct set of system tools and settings that can repair operational problems found in this PC game.
How To Speed Up Black Ops Again
One of the first things that you will want to do when Black Ops is running slow on your PC is to check if you have the latest Windows updates in your PC. However, this is far from suggesting that if you have an old operating system in your system that you need to get the latest one installed. What you need to do is make sure that your computer has the latest patches and hotfixes and if not install them. This is because new versions of Black Ops are configured to work only with the latest Windows patches. To get the latest Windows updates in your PC, you need to first click on Start in your Windows Bar. Following this select the All Programs option. Finally, access the latest patches and hotfixes by selecting Windows Update. If this does not resolve speed issues with Black Ops, consider cleaning your registry out.
It's recommended you also clean out any registry errors that COD: Black Ops may have. Basically, the registry records all activities that occur in your PC. Along the way it will save extension files that are unimportant and unnecessary. Overtime, your registry will be overloaded with these redundant files which will only serve to slow your PC down, causing crashes whenever you attempt to load programs, extremely leading to errors. This can happen fast if you find yourself frequently accessing the Internet, which contains thousands of cookies that leave useless files in your system that are not self-cancelling or regularly download applications in your computer. To clean your PC of these useless files that cause errors to arise in your system, you need to use a registry cleaner.

Computers are great when they are running fast and smoothly … but as soon as your system starts to run slow, it quickly becomes extremely annoying and frustrating to use. Fortunately, there's a simple trick that we like to call the "Windows Detox" that can make your PC run like it did when it was new. Here's what you need to do in order to make your system run considering faster …
The problem many people have with their Windows systems is that they simply do not realize what makes it run slow. They try all sorts of tweaks and methods to optimize it or boost its speed, but the fact is that most computers run slowly for the simplest of reasons. Fixing the cause of your PC's slow speed is a necessity if you want to make your system run faster, and the good news is that you can do this very easily.
The biggest cause of Windows running slow is down to the 'registry' of your PC. The registry is a database which stores information and settings that your computer can use to 'remember' a variety of different details and settings for your system. Every Windows PC rests on the 'registry database' to function as it holds such vital information as your desktop icons, most recent emails and even your top visited websites. Imagine every setting on your PC and it's stored in the registry database – that's how important it is to your system. However, the registry is also a big cause of problems for Windows as well, and is why many Windows PCs just suddenly seem to run slower.
The registry causes Windows to run slower for a very simple reason – because it's continuously becoming corrupt. Whenever you use your PC, it's constantly opening and reading many different settings from the registry, allowing Windows to recall all the settings it needs. However, it's often the case that Windows gets confused and the registry is saved in the wrong way, causing many of the settings to become unreadable.This might seem like a trivial problem, but it's a major cause of why Windows computers run slow, and if you want to fix your PC, you need to make sure the registry is clean and fully functional.
We often call this trick the "Windows Detox", because it 'flushes out' all the corrupt and damaged settings that are inside your system & causing problems. All you need to do is use a 'registry cleaner' program to scan through the registry of your PC an fix any of the damaged or corrupt settings that are inside it. A registry cleaner is an automated tool which is able to fix many registry errors from your system. Depending on what quality of registry cleaner you get (and how many damaged registry errors are on your PC), you can use a registry tool to make your PC run extremely fast. To use one of these tools, you should first download one from the web and then let it scan your system for any problems. If it finds a significant number of issues, let it fix the errors, which should speed up your computer

Android 4 is the latest version of Google's Android Operating System. It has been code-named as the 'Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)'. The Android 4 OS has been designed by Google to be used in both cell phones and PC tablets. Google has mentioned that Android 4 brings together the best of both Gingerbread and Honeycomb, the previous two versions of Android, but also has new features that will make using cell phones or tablet a much richer experience.
The animations have been refined and enhanced to offer you a better experience. The most noticeable change with Ice Cream Sandwich is the interface. In the new Android 4 OS, Google has tried to make the common functions more accessible which allow more natural and flowing navigation around the operating system. It might follow the same principles as the previous Android version, but the way it is used is radically different in a number of ways. The Android 4 is designed to work with buttons. Now to navigate around you will be offered three soft-keys: Back, Home and Multitasking. Multitasking has been made easier and more seamless, with the bonus of re-sizable widgets and customized home screens.
It even offers the favorite tray feature which can be seen on all screens. If you will be using an Android 4 tablet that may at any point of time have many screens to flip through so if you have your favorites lined up to flip through will be a nice feature. An Android 4 tablet will now have better Wi-Fi and network connectivity and will highlight which applications are using what data. This feature will be of great help for the people who have a tendency of going beyond their network usage every month so that they come to know which application is causing the most data usage and can keep a check on it.
The security has been enhanced a lot in this latest version as it will have the face unlock feature. Android 4 Tablets will take a giant leap, much ahead of the previous versions once launched. Well nothing has been decided or disclosed yet, as in when is Android 4 OS being launched because it was only some time back that the Android 3 honeycomb operating system was releases. So the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system may take some time from now. But at this stage it seems that it is going to deliver on its promise.

Google finally announced the launch of Chromebook; the people have been waiting for this device for a long time. On the other hand iPhone also launched iPad 2.0, which is also very attractive and better than the iPad 1.0. Have you been thinking of buying one of the two? Which one should you buy? Here is a brief comparison between Chrome Notebook and iPad 2.0.
Although Chrome Notebook is not available in the market yet, but we can help you in making a decision. The features of Chromebook we are going to discuss have been revealed by the test pilots. iPad is already in the market and has been used by several people by now, so we can weigh the features of two.
The Chrome Netbook is very fast and takes just 10 seconds to reboot. It has 16 GB of SSD storage, but you can not use it directly. The Chromebook comes with a front camera and a Wireless (Wi-Fi or 3G) access. The Keyboard of Chromebook is very beautiful and well designed. It has a very long battery life. One of the drawbacks is that they beta version crashes a lot; the test pilots are positive that this problem would have taken care of when the device is made commercially available.
The iPad 2.0 is also very fast and it has an A4 processor – think Playbook processing power. Like Chromebook, it has 16GB of SSD storage and has cameras on the front and the back. It has wireless access and comes with a digital keyboard. The battery life is around 8 hours and it offers great speed web browsing. It offers great applications as well; however, it does not support Flash. The drawback is that the user is locked into Apple's ever more restrictive "environment".
The price of Google Chrome Netbook would be around $ 320 to $ 450 and the price of iPad 2.0 is near $ 650. When we compare the prices of the two, Chrome Netbook wins. However, if iPad is available at a lower price, like around $ 500, then surely it will be better to buy iPad 2.0 as it is lighter, more portable and offers an interface much like the traditional computer. Apple has been developing computing devices and mobile for a long time, since there are fewer problems expected in an apple device. Chrome Netbook is Google's first commercial computing device: Google would need some years to make it perfect.
