Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 Video Transcript
This year's update to Kaspersky Internet Security doesn't appear to make any massive changes to the 2010 version, but Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 offers enough that's new and improved to bring back the faithful and maybe attract some new believers, too. The new version of Kaspersky Internet Security introduces an interface that looks similar to last year's but in fact has been revamped in some key ways. For one thing, the different screens open significantly faster. The left side navigation has been changed to better organize the program's tools. The tool section accesses several ancillary tools that can be used to enhance security, but wouldn't be considered core features. These include creating a restore disk, third party vulnerability analysis, and a system restore option. The new version expands the Safe Run sandbox environment to include the desktop and websites, offers a geo filter for blocking IP addresses by geographic location, and has improved its rescue CD creator to allow users to make a rescue USB stick. Kaspersky will now install in an infected computer, even against malware designed to prevent security tools from being installed, according to Kaspersky. There's a third party vulnerability scan that will check programs like Adobe Flash for unpatched holes, too. Parents looking for more control can now toggle their children's access to any program on the computer, and there's a Windows desktop gadget for quick security access on Vista and Windows 7. A new gaming mode keeps the program silent while watching movies or playing games. Kaspersky continues to get high marks from independent threat detection and removal tests and it finished a full scan in under an hour, unexpectedly quick. So what's wrong with KIS 2011? Not much. There's the price which is $80 for three computers, placing it at the upper end of security programs. Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 is cheaper than its bigger brother by about 20 bucks, but lacks many of the features such as Safe Run, the firewall, and parental controls. Both have good online support. Telephone support is offered, too, but the number is hard to find on their website, so there's room for improvement, but when it comes to security tools, this one keeps its user safe while making navigating its robust tool set intuitive. With your first look at Kaspersky Intervirus 2011, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.

A modest update to a good camera, Nikon's Coolpix S9300 doesn't improve enough to keep pace with its competition.
Though the Creative Vado HD 3rd Gen doesn't do quite enough to distinguish itself from the competition, it does offer some nice improvements over earlier Vado HD models that keep it relevant in the pocket camcorder space.
Firefox's tabbed browsing, RSS support, security features, and overall cool factor make it more attractive than Internet Explorer.

Apple's new iPad doesn't appear all that different from last year's, but its new high-definition screen is the first of its kind and the improved camera quality will appeal to shutterbugs.
