Dropbox is an online storage provider and with all the options out there is still one of the best. I use this application to easily sync files between my work and home PC but as a super easy way of getting files to other people. I also find the Android application very useful to get non-Play Store applications quickly across my various devices.
Both Microsoft and Google are making a huge push to get people using their various offerings, but this one I just keep coming back to. What is new since 2.6.28? Not alot but change is good!

Heartbleed is a security bug in the open-source OpenSSL cryptography library, widely used to implement the Internet's Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. This vulnerability results from a missing bounds check in the handling of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) heartbeat extension, the heartbeat being behind the bug's name. A fixed version of OpenSSL was released on April 7, 2014, at the same time as Heartbleed was publicly disclosed. At that time, some 17 percent (around half a million) of the Internet's secure web servers certified by trusted authorities were believed to be vulnerable to the attack, allowing theft of the servers' private keys and users' session cookies and passwords. (Heartbleed - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Here is a listed of places that are or were affected by the Heartbleed bug.
If something you use is on the list and their services have been patched you may want to change your password.
If they have not yet patched yet it will do no good to change your password so wait for that service/site to be patched then change password.
For example, Gmail was affected but is now patched so you should probably change your gmail password.
In a surprising move today, Microsoft just announced that long-time CEO Steve Ballmer will retire in the coming 12 months. He will stay at the helm of the company until a special committee appoints a new CEO.
In a new post on the Microsoft Security blog, Tim Rains, the director of its Trustworthy Computing division, says that while he has heard of many businesses that will be upgrading their PCs from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8, he has also heard from others that they don't plan on upgrading before the support cut off date. He added, "I have even talked to some customers that say they won’t migrate from Windows XP until the hardware it’s running on fails."
