When dealing with computer security, an often overlooked security risk is so-called "deleted files". When files are deleted, nothing is actually done to them aside from marking them as "free-space". The OS may get around to overwriting them sometime when it needs the space, but a deleted file could sit on a drive completely intact for weeks of usage (the bigger it is the bigger the chance it will be at least partially overwrited). Encryption applications that do not involve real-time decoding (a special driver decrypting files on-the-go vs an application decrypting and re-encrypting files), often do not have secure methods of wiping files (or the user is unaware of them), and hence the files are left in an unencrypted state on the drive when deleted. The only way to assure deleted files remain that way (or at least make their recovery very difficult and time-consuming) is to have an application overwrite the drives free-space with random 0s/1s, ideally multiple times.

I appreciate what you're saying here, but I tend to disagree with most of it. I think things like text expansion actually offer an alternative to the shorthand writing conventions that have been ushered in with the era of SMS and Twitter. Text expansion is able to yield identical results in fewer keystrokes. This promotes efficiency, not laziness. In fact, I would argue that text expansion actually serves to mitigate some of the adverse effects of laziness. Top 10 Awesome Things You Can Do With Text
@Rose Tyler: Not sure if you meant "you" as in myself specifically, or a more general "you" so I'll answer both. Personally, I use Linux as my primary OS, and I browse with FlashBlock plus NoScript with strict settings. I do almost no browsing in Windows, and my NoScript settings are even tighter there. For a more general answer: you don't have to change OSes to be relatively safe, you just have to adopt good habits. How to Stay Secure Online
While I've never heard the term "freezes" for save states, they are a very useful feature. However, a word of caution — be careful to not overuse them. They can really cheapen a game if you use them too much. You start out just using them to make saving and loading a little bit faster, but before you know it, you're saving in times you have no business saving, like in the middle of a long RPG battle, just redoing any mistake you make.
