Using Windows 8′s “hidden” backup to clone and recover your whole PC

Your settings and apps in the new tablet-y interface (yeah, we're still calling it Metro) are automatically backed up if you use a Microsoft account. That means when you restore your PC, all of the Metro stuff comes back exactly the way you remember it. This has limitations—your desktop applications, anything that wasn't downloaded from the Windows Store, are wiped when performing the most easily accessible type of restore in Windows 8. Beyond Metro, all you get is a file on your desktop listing the applications you've lost. There's also a new backup tool on the desktop side of things, but this has its limits too. One problem is neither File History nor the Metro restore feature are complete backup tools.

After the huge debate this original post created, we decided to refine and build upon the original article, bearing in mind the thoughts of some very insightful feedback left by some commenters.

5 Reasons Why Responsive Design Is Not Worth It

You can find the new article here. “We’re just now starting to think about mobile first and desktop second for a lot of our products.” ~ Kate Aronowitz, Design Director, Facebook “[The shift to mobile design] is even bigger than the PC revolution.” ~ Kevin Lynch, CTO, Adobe In 2014, more people will be using mobile devices to access the internet than desktop PCs. Accessibility for mobile devices has become a huge priority for web developers. Responsive design is seemingly universally accepted as the way forward, but I am far from convinced.

Attack against Microsoft scheme puts hundreds of crypto apps at risk. Researchers have devised an attack against a Microsoft-developed authentication scheme that makes it trivial to break the encryption used by hundreds of anonymity and security services, including the iPredator virtual private network offered to users of The Pirate Bay.

Attack against Microsoft scheme puts hundreds of crypto apps at risk

The attack, unveiled by Moxie Marlinspike and David Hulton, takes on average just 12 hours to recover the secret key that iPredator and more than 100 other VPN and wireless products use to encrypt sensitive data. The technique, which has been folded into Marlinspike's CloudCracker service, exploits weaknesses in version 2 of a Microsoft technology known as MS-CHAP, short for Microsoft challenge-handshake authentication protocol. It's widely used to log users into VPN and WPA2 networks and is built into a variety of operating systems, including Windows and Ubuntu.

Go Daddy really and truly opposes SOPA now

There's nothing like getting kicked in the teeth by your customers to make a company see reason. When Internet registry and Web site hosting company Go Daddy first realized that supporting the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a misguided Internet copyright and censorship bill, wasn't a smart idea, Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman did a half-assed job of backing away from SOPA. A few days later, and quite a few lost customers later, Go Daddy has decided to really and truly oppose SOPA.

The first time around, when Adelman announced Go Daddy's opposition to SOPA, he waffled saying, "Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation-but we can clearly do better.
