Apple Hard Drives Fail? Say it isn't so!

Newsflash: Apple drives fail as much as other drives. In the case of the 27" iMac 3TB computer, they may be failing more than normal. This could be a number of things - including a bad batch of discs, but it could also be partly due to poor ventilation and over heating. The good news is that while you data may all be lost, Apple will replace your drive for you.

Apple is contacting affected iMac owners that provided a valid email address during product registration to inform them about the new replacement program. iMac owners can check if they are affected by entering the computer's serial number on Apple's support website, and visit the Genius Bar, locate an AASP or contact Apple Technical Support to initiate the replacement process.

Microsoft Kills AV Updates for Windows XP

It looks like you have yet another reason to ditch Windows XP here in the very near future. Microsoft announced that they have now killed updates for Microsoft Security Essentials. Patches have been stopped for a while and now without real-time protection, there are not many reasons to keep on using a 14 year old OS.

"Of course we wish Microsoft decided to support the XP platform for a longer period given its commercial success, but since things didn’t play out that way, it’s important for users to know that if they don’t move away from XP they stand to lose financial resources, personal information, and critical professional files," Zaharia says.

Tesla Gets Ludicrous

A while back Tesla showed off their "Insane Mode" for the Model S and they managed to push the performance of their 4-door sedan to a nice 0-60mph in 3.2sec. They have just taken the performance up a notch with the new "Ludicrous Mode" and now managed to get the same Tesla S up to an incredible 0-60mph in 2.8sec. That is just downright awesome! This new electronics pack will set you back an additional $10,000 though - unless you do the upgrade in the next 6 months. It will be 50% off to help make the upgrade less painful.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the new mode pushes the vehicle to 1.1Gs while accelerating and that it's "faster than falling." Musk also introduced a new 90kWh battery pack upgrade for the 85kWh Model S which increases the range five percent for $3,000. The 70 kWh rear-wheel drive Model S also got a price drop to $70,000.
