How Clearing Your Browser History Can Get Your In Trouble
It's a practice that many computer users follow: clearing their browsing history every once and a while. The reasons to do it are totally varied: to make what you were doing not as obvious, to free up space, to start fresh, to get some programs working, and more. One man, however, is facing serious charges. Why? Because he cleared his browsing history. Well, it's not quite that simple. Khairullozhon Matanov, a former taxi driver, is being charged for clearing browsing history pieces that were related to the Boston bombings, among other things. He's not being charged for knowing about these things, but for erasing things related to those who committed the act from his history. So, can you really be charged for clearing your browsing history? Well, yes. You can. Depending on the circumstances. Typically, it's when you selectively clear history related to a crime or event, as this can then be considered to be destroying evidence. Occasionally, a normal browsing history clear might clear these more specific things and thus cause a problem, even if it wasn't cleared to hide anything. But I'm not saying you should. There's a lot of disagreements about whether or not unknowingly deleting evidence by clearing your browsing history can really be charged or not, even though this has been used in court, it may not be right. Either way, you might want to set up your browser to automatically delete. You know, just in case.

AKON Joins in on Solar Energy in Africa
It's great to see musicians, artists and other celebs who have made their way taking the time to try to make a difference where they can. One such example: a Cuban artist (Kcho) set up free public wi-fi for people to use as a thank you for their support, and as a way to try to improve something small. And now, another example: AKON has started the Akon Lighting Africa initiative, which aims to provide solar energy to some of the more than 600 million people who are without electricity in Africa. As part of that initiative, he is opening a “Solar Academy” which will aim to train people in solar and renewable energy to help provide more energy to the areas they're in while also paving a career future for themselves. There are also other African solar academies are getting, such as the Zayed Solar Academy, which gave a presentation at the Sustainable Energy for All conference, the same conference at which Akon's solar academy was announced. AKON seems like a pretty decent guy to me. He has established his own charity known as the Konfidence Foundation, which helps underprivileged children as well, so it seems he is using his success to try to genuinely help where he can. Hopefully, other artists (a lot already do) will follow in the footsteps of those trying to make technological advances and supporting various causes where they can.
