Computer Security Solutions

Over the weekend, there has been news about 250,000 Twitter accounts being hacked. There was also a web hosting company whose servers were somehow infected with malware. It seems hackers are getting better and deadlier with their scheming and attacks. Security Software updates made to your computer should be regular. Do not install anything without checking its validity and do not click on suspicious links.

Best Songs with your Windows Down

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When we were looking for a new car several years back, we checked out the new Kias.  At that time, we were not impressed but what a difference a few years makes.  After looking at the ads for the new Kias, I can see that they have dramatically improved their cars with some really new and cool technology.  The new Kia Rio and Spotify have teamed up to develop a new interactive song playlist that interfaces with your windows playlist application and can be accessed through Facebook.  The “Best Songs with your Windows Down” playlist application allows you listen to a great collection of music that you can also share with your friends.

As a music lover and a traveler, this Spotify media application is definitely a boredom reliever for those long trips.  If you have an upcoming trip this summer, you should think about downloading the Spotify app to your windows down on your laptop or better yet buy a new Kia Rio.  The best thing about this new media application is that users can contribute a song to create a playlist via the Spotify application or the Rio Playlist tab on the Rio Facebook page.

Users that click on any of the playlist promotional units will launch a branded lightbox, a place where you can submit a song.  You can then either subscribe to the playlist or share it with your friends.  Here’s how it works:

•  Visit Kia Rio on Facebook and search for your favorite song to play with your windows application.
• Choose your song, enter your name and email and click submit.
• Make sure to click on view playlist so you can see the songs that were submitted by other users.
• Be sure that you have downloaded the Spotify application.
• Then sit back, relax and enjoy the Kia Rio songs.

I found this idea really cool so I tried it myself.  I am into “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele.  It is an award winning single of hers so it is a quite familiar song on the radio.  I am planning to submit another song, “Someone Like You” again, by Adele.

Submit your songs now and make your own playlist.  You can recommend those songs and tell me why you picked them by commenting on this post.  Keep in mind to keep checking the playlist everyday for more amazing songs.

In addition to the Kia Rio and Spotify partnership, Kia Rio also features a Voice-Activated UVO Infotainment System powered by Microsoft.  This cutting edge technology allows you to personalize your driving experience using the sound of your own voice.  I think that is really cool.  It sounds like one of those features that James Bond has in his car.  UVO also allows you to answer and place phone calls, receive and respond to text messages and much more.  This UVO Powered by Microsoft® voice-activated infotainment system unlocks the power of your spoken words.  To learn more about Kia’s new features visit http://www.kia.com/#/uvo.

The schools do these kinds of educational assessment tests to improve program retention rates and guide successful students to gainful employment.

Wonderlic offers student educational assessment technology. Whether your programs are on-campus, online or blended, Wonderlic has a student admissions test solution for you. Wonderlic powerful education assessment technology can be administered via online and is easy to use. It provides school administrators an efficient way to view and compare test results.
