Sometimes, shutting down doesn't really mean shutting down.
As with any software, it's important to keep Windows 10 up to date and fully patched, whether you're a business user or a consumer. However, in order for updates to be applied properly, your computers need to be rebooted. Unfortunately, due to a feature of Windows 10, called fast startup, that might not be happening.Read More »
It’s not just Asus customers who should be concerned

No aluminium for you!
Norsk Hydro, one of the biggest producers of aluminium in the world, was hit by a major ransomware attack this week. Had it been limited to the United States where it began, we might not be writing about it now.

If you like losing money, hop on board. Otherwise, you should hold off for now.
Depending on who you talk to, cryptocurrency is either the best modern invention since the smartphone or it’s nothing more than a hyped-up Ponzi scheme covered by a thin veil of mainstream acceptability. Previously, when TMB wrote about this subject, we predicted big players like Bitcoin might have the staying power to survive any kind of crash in the cryptocurrency market, but we recommended that SMEs should probably avoid getting involved – at least for now. But more than a year has passed since we wrote that, so what about now? Is cryptocurrency worth it?Read More »
