Pirates of Silicon Valley Worksheets

Description: 
"Pirates of Silicon Valley (DVD and VHS) is the dramatization of the events that lead to the creation and explosive growth of the personal computer. We follow Steve Jobs (Apple) and Bill Gates (Microsoft) as their paths crisscross in Silicon Valley. We watch as the rivalry between these two giants unfolds. I like to use this video to introduce PC hardware and software evolution.

Security Issues

Description: 
There are several links to a site TechSupportAlert.com which deals with security issues of all kinds. These two links can lead you to other materials on that site. There's also a one-page paper which mentions several other good security sites to use. Both the security sites and the utilities appear to be PC-only.
