Lenovo To Wipe Superfish Off PCs t

An anonymous reader send news from the Wall Street Journal, where Lenovo CTO Peter Hortensius said in an interview that the company will roll out a software update to remove the Superfish adware from its laptops. “As soon as the programmer is finished, we will provide a tool that removes all traces of the app from people’s laptops; this goes further than simply uninstalling the app. Once the app-wiping software is finished tonight or tomorrow, we’ll issue a press release with information on how to get it.” When asked whether his company vets the software they pre-install on their machines, he said, “Yes, we do. Obviously in this case we didn’t do enough. The intent of loading this tool was to help enhance our users’ shopping experience. The feedback from users was that it wasn’t useful, and that’s why we turned it off. Our reputation is everything and our products are ultimately how we have our reputation.”

HEALTH WATCH: sweatthesweetstuff — Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring and that working out can be fun!

I want people to understand their bodies. To know that there is a connection between what we put in it and on it, and how that makes us feel. That eating right isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about how good we can feel! On the inside and out. It doesn’t stop at our dress size and energy levels (which are great) but it can help improve other things like your skin, hair & nails, achy joints, headaches, allergies, asthma, your menstrual cycle, IBS, indigestion, several diseases, even cancer. Your body is smart. It knows what to do. You just have to give it the right stuff.
