Internet

Recently several of my students have been plagued with adware and malware….AND…Every so often my computer gets infected with malware and adware too and just uninstalling and wiping the browsers does not do the complete job. So if you open a site, even one you know is good and a voice comes up(which is aweful when using talking software) and ad pops up saying their ad, then you are infected. This next option worked well, though I did not download all the software at the end of their to do list, as I plan on just going through this option of picking out the problems each time as it is good to just get a clean start every now and again to rid yourself of other problems you may not be aware of—–Here is the site:

In a 36 hour project for the CIID, designers andrew spitzmarkus schmeiduch and ruben van der vleuten
have developed an assisting device for the visually impaired to help improve their abilities in discovering
and navigating new routes throughout cities. known as ‘blind maps’, the braille-like interface provides
users an interactive experience with real time auditory feedback and tactile integration. it allows you
to become aware of upcoming intersections, turns and hazards on route – helping them adapt to
unfamiliar environments.
