    Should you wait for Black Friday to upgrade your PC? - PC World NEW!

        Ask the internet if you should wait until Black Friday to upgrade your PC, and you’ll get a stream of comments dismissing it as a time for good deals.They’re not wrong, but they’re not exactly right, either. Even in 2019, which is an odd duck compared to other years because Thanksgiving falls so late in the month.If you’ve got your eye on a very specific part, your chances of a deep discount are generally a toss-up. For most components, it's as likely you’ll get a better price at another time of the year as you will during Black Friday. The more niche it is, the rougher your odds.On the other end of the spectrum, if all you care about is price and not so much specific models for your components, you can chain together Black Friday deals for ultimate savings.

    Disney+ 'hack' panic stresses why you need to use unique passwords - PC World NEW!

        The scary headlines started popping up almost immediately. “Thousands of hacked Disney+ accounts are already for sale on hacking forums,” ZDNet proclaimed last week. This morning, the BBC followed up with “Disney+ fans without answers after thousands hacked.” Well, I’ve got an answer for you, and it’s one you’ve probably heard before. Stop reusing passwords across multiple services and websites.Both sites found “thousands” of Disney+ logins available on the Dark Web—just over 4,000, in the BBC’s case. When the publications reached out to affected customers, some admitted that they reused existing passwords for Disney+, while some denied it. But given the low number of so-called “hacks”—a few thousand confirmed for a service that already boasts over 10 million users is a drop in a pool, as RockPaperShotgun cofounder John Walker points out—it seems likely that bad password behavior is more to blame than a breach on Disney’s part.To read this article in full, please click here

    Google Stadia review: A glimpse of a future some other company will pr... - PC World NEW!

        With Stadia, there are no easy answers. Every compliment I want to pay Google’s game streaming service—and there are quite a few actually—is shackled to a caveat, a complication, or a complaint. Sometimes all three.That’s a problem. The biggest problem, really. Google intended Stadia to simplify the way people consume games. No hardware! Play your games anywhere, at any time! And yet the reality, at least for now, is a labyrinth of potential pitfalls. Does Google Stadia work? Sure, under the right circumstances and with the right game. Will it work for you, though? That’s a harder question, or rather a hundred questions, any one of which could prove fatal to Stadia’s chances.To read this article in full, please click here
