Fry's Electronics - Webroot, the first Internet security service company, today announced availability of Prevx 3.0 across leading US retailers. From today, PC users can purchase boxed versions of Prevx 3.0 - powerful, cloud-based anti-malware technology from Webroot subsidiary Prevx - at,, Fry's Electronics and Fry', J&R, Micro Center,, and other leading retailers nationwide. The award-winning Prevx 3.0 is a layered anti-malware solution designed to boost PC protection by offering faster scanning, a super-light footprint and full compatibility with all the popular anti-malware brands on the market today. PC users will be able to purchase two versions of the product: Prevx 3.0 Cloud Anti-Malware or Prevx 3.0 Cloud Security, which includes the powerful Prevx SafeOnline browser-based security technology.

"Attacks by cybercriminals continue to wreak havoc, despite the vast number of anti-malware or antivirus (AV) products available online or in stores across the country. Customers regularly praise our layered security solution for addressing this issue whereby Prevx 3.0 is downloaded and then installed alongside an existing AV to help boost PC defenses," said Mel Morris, vice president and general manager of Prevx operations at Webroot. "Indeed, Prevx is recognized in the industry as a pioneering 'cloud-based' anti-malware solution. This not only means that our approach to combating malware comes from the cloud but it is also the way in which we deliver our product to customers. As a result of our continued success, more customers have come to us asking for a boxed version of our solution, as this is how they've historically preferred to purchase their PC software. This is why we are extremely pleased to be partnering with some of the country's leading retailers to offer a powerful, cloud-based anti-malware solution in-a-box."

Prevx solutions leverage the world's largest cloud-based threat database with knowledge of more than 140 million software applications and 40 million known malicious objects, supported by the most powerful automated malware research operation. This means that unlike traditional anti-malware solutions, if Prevx sees a threat once, all users' PCs are immediately updated to prevent an attack without having to wait for an update. At under 1MB in size, Prevx solutions include the world's smallest, fastest, and lightest security agent, which downloads, installs and scans a PC in minutes. Prevx solutions are also fully interoperable with an existing anti-malware solution. Hence, even if a PC user has a security product installed, Prevx will run alongside it to show what it is missing and provide an extra layer of defence.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
