Question: I know Windows XP is about to be retired, but is it safe enough for me to do my taxes or should I upgrade it first? — Ralph
Not that many years ago, I learned that I was at risk for identity theft and credit card fraud. I was a GM employee, and some HR person’s laptop was stolen, and it contained personal information for tens of thousands of employees, including me. Thereafter, I was again surprised and disappointed when I received a letter from ADOBE Systems — their IT had been hacked, and I (as an Adobe customer) was again at risk. Not long after that, the (short-lived) news story broke that the Maricopa County Community College District’s databases had been hacked, and tens of thousands of students were at risk — of course, I graduated from MCC. So, now, just as I was getting over-confident with my Target REDcard, another tsunami hits. Americans probably need to wake up — myself included. We complain about the government, Healthcare.gov, etc. etc., and yet BIG BUSINESS is apparently also rank with incompetent amateurs. I sure don’t know what the answer is, but it seems obvious that we’re just not ready to take this whole problem seriously. What will it take? And what will we be willing to “pay”? Maybe it’s already too late.
NEW YORK — The holidays bring out the inner-coffee table book obsessive in gift buyers. They're easy, weighty and satisfying to give. You've done your job with your pricey treat.
Surprise, surprise: Obama’s ‘ObamaCare’ internet registration debacle was developed by a Canadian corporation, CGI Group. Our own countrymen weren’t even awarded the contract to develop the system. I know, “lowest bidder”. From what NBC reported, CGI developed the Canadian system and from what I’ve learned from reports about the Great White North’s system, I can appreciate why we’re in a fix. For a system this large and what it’s expected to do, it takes months, even years of working with the programmers and performing a multitude of benchmark tests. I’m not so sure the Obama administration even knows what benchmarking is. It helps develop a “fail-safe” system, drawing out the shortcomings. God only knows, if one is going to create a system of this magnitude it requires more effort than what a few politically appointed hacks can contribute. Yup, “We’ll get it up and running and then figure out the problems later.” What a way to run a business.
Terry arose at six one morning to the sounds of a loud banging upon her door. Still dressed in her fuzzy yellow robe and covered in bed head, she proceeded to answer the poundings and ensured the two people were indeed the Chandler Police detectives they claimed to be.
Q: Is a regular antivirus program good enough to protect my business computers? — Brad
Amigos, here’s a worthy poster to nail on the gate post: “Wanted: Safe Bargain Shopping on the Internet.” In case you’re new to frugal buying online, here’s a big “howdy” to the new frontier of shopping.
News stories from over the weekend about the deaths of 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shot fire fighters in Yarnell paint an ugly picture of Arizona’s response to what was a small fire that grew and grew and killed so many.

NEW YORK — Here's the latest goal for food makers: Perfect the art of imperfection.
There’s good news and bad news in the twin terrorist outrages of the horrific running over and hacking to death of a British soldier and the Boston Marathon bombings. The good: intelligence agencies had some of these young terrorists on their radar. The bad news: having them on the radar did little good since the murderers still successfully completed their planned butchery.
A farmer would be horrified over the notion of an Arizona coyote being assigned to watch over his chicken coop. Arizonans should be worried that some public officials think they should be responsible for watching over themselves.

Mike McClellan’s commentary (Dec. 19) was so full of inaccuracies and blatant lies that I felt compelled to respond.
I’ve eaten approximately 40 turkeys in my life. Well, parts of turkeys that is. I have never tried to eat a whole one by myself, but I have collected my fair share of turkey experiences and every year brings something new.
To borrow a line from Depeche Mode, death is everywhere in "Skyfall." James Bond's mortality has never been in such prominent focus, but the demise of the entire British spy game as we know it seems imminent, as well.
James Patterson titled his 12th Alex Cross crime novel simply "Cross." The filmmakers who adapted it expanded the title to "Alex Cross."
