Today's computer tech news

Via Ace of Spades, today's important news about computer errors and how to deal with them.
If your laptop computer tells you to bring it someplace warm and steamy, or if it tells you to arch your back and lather more vigorously in the shower, OMG TOTALLY DON'T.

The news comes thanks to a computer tech in California.
A Southern California computer repairman suspected of installing spyware on laptops that enabled him to snap and download photographs of women showering and undressing in their homes was arrested Wednesday at his home, police said.

Police began investigating when a Fullerton resident complained about suspicious messages appearing on his daughter’s computer last year. Trevor Harwell installed software that took control of computer webcams on his clients’ Mac laptops, Fullerton police Sgt. Andrew Goodrich said. He was released later Wednesday after posting $50,000 bond, Goodrich said.
I don't have to worry about getting those kind of messages on my computer.
