Safety and Security: Facebook Encryption

Many people browse facebook without even the most basic protections.

It's quick, and very easy.

I had a customer a while back who was upgrading his multimedia center... the works, new TV, Surround sound etc. I was asked what type of multimedia device should he get for Netflix and other streaming content from the internet. He was surprised when I said "Get an Xbox." His confusion no doubt came from the idea that XBOX is purely a gaming console. However I personally got it not for games, but for multimedia! And it's faannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn-tastic at it. The XBOX can stream Netflix, Youtube, Hulu and more in HD.
