YouTube videos are designed to stream, not to sit on your hard disk or solid state drive. But sometimes there are very good reasons why you might want to save videos for watching offline. You might have slow Internet, you might commute and have a small data plan, or you might just want to save a clip for posterity because you suspect it’s about to be deleted. - PC: Any Video Converter Free: http://www.techradar.com/reviews/any-video-converter-free - Android: TubeMate: http://tubemate.net/

Reason 1: Search and make money with Microsoft Rewards. If you have a Microsoft account, you can earn five points per Bing search on a desktop PC, up to 150 points per day. For roughly 475 credits, Microsoft will give you $5 to spend at Amazon, or Target, Burger King, Starbucks, or other merchants. Reason 2: Search results: As good or better than Google’s. Bing makes better use of that vast, white space on the right side, displaying contextual information about the school, its history, news, and more. Reason 3: Bing’s image search adds an extra layer of search filters that Google users must drill down to find, including options to show only pictures with faces, for example, or display images in a particular layout.

The popular virtual private network (VPN) provider TunnelBear wants to earn your trust. The company just announced what it says is the first third-party public security audit in the consumer VPN industry. In short, a security company looked at TunnelBear’s servers, apps, and infrastructure to see if everything was up to snuff. The VPN provider hired Germany-based penetration testing company Cure53. The security company was given full access to TunnelBear’s systems and code for 30 days in late 2016 and another eight in early 2017. The end result was two audits, which TunnelBear and Cure53 published Tuesday. During the first audit, Cure53 found two critical vulnerabilities in TunnelBear’s Chrome extension, one of which allowed a malicious actor to turn off the extension. The auditors also found a critical vulnerability in TunnelBear for Mac that could allow a hacker to take over a user’s machine. All three vulnerabilities have since been patched.

Microsoft has backed off a possible confrontation with customers who had been told their two-to-four-year-old PCs were unfit for Windows 10, a sign, said one analyst, that the company remains unsure of its support strategy for the OS. Earlier this year, Microsoft blocked a class of low-end personal computers - those equipped with Intel's Atom system-on-a-chip (SoC) processors, dubbed "Clover Trail," from receiving the Windows 10 Creators Update. Also known as 1703 in Microsoft's year/month parlance, Creators was the first feature upgrade of the year, and the third since the operating system's launch. Windows 10 suffers from a support contradiction. On the one hand, Microsoft has said that the OS will be the last version of Windows, ever, implying that it will be updated and maintained - "serviced" in the company's vernacular - for all time.

The core problem: Microsoft still hasn’t figured out how to deliver reliable Windows patches. Patch Tuesdays have turned into massive beta-testing grounds where bugs crawl out of the woodwork and attack in unpredictable ways. Patching the mess we know as Windows, in all of its varied glory, is an NP-complete problem (that is, it’s “technically hard”). If everybody skipped Automatic Update, we’d be in an unholy mess. But folks who are willing and able to read the tea leaves don’t need to expose themselves to the risks of marching in lock-step with the Auto Update cadence. Patches are important, but you don't need Automatic Update to do them. Yes, certainly, you need to install updates regularly. Yes, absolutely, if your sainted aunt Martha can’t be trusted to make an informed decision, her PC should join the unpaid beta testers. But no, you don’t need to swallow updates according to Microsoft’s timetable. A bit of diligence and discernment can protect your machine from threats coming in from all directions.
