With the increasing number of smartphones, tablets and computers, there is a huge demand for the ability to watch live TV anywhere on these devices. To fulfill this demand, DISH has come up with a service called Hopper. The Hopper is a Whole-Home HD DVR that lets you watch live and recorded TV anywhere and instantly skip commercials in recorded primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Plus, you can record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime and store up to 2,000 hours of your favorite shows.
Hopper includes a bundle of exciting features like DISH Anywhere. With the DISH Anywhere app (for Apple and Android devices) and online portal, customers can watch live and recorded TV including live sporting events, TV shows and movies - anytime, anywhere. The Hopper Transfers app allows you to transfer your DVR recordings to your iPad so that you can watch your favorite shows without internet access. AutoHop allows you to automatically skip commercials on recorded TV and save a lot of your valuable time. PrimeTime Anytime allows you to record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime giving you three hours of on demand primetime ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC programming available to you for up to 8 days from initial air date.
Being able to watch live or recorded TV anywhere would mean that you can save a lot of your valuable time by watching your favorite shows and you'll never miss out on anything. The ability to record 6 different shows at the same time is one of my favorite features of Hopper. We all hate making the tough choice of which show to watch during prime time. PrimeTime Anytime can prove to be very useful in such a scenario. The best part is that you can get the Hopper free when you sign up for DISH. Packages starting at $24.99. (For 12 months with 24 month commitment). Learn more about the Hopper by visiting the DISH website. You can also Follow DISH on Twitter or LIKE DISH on Facebook to stay in touch with the latest features that DISH has to offer.

Vipre Antivirus is a lightweight antivirus with a bundle of bonus features attached to it. I recently decided to try it out to get a better idea of what Vipre has to offer.
Installing Vipre was pretty simple and straight forward. All you need is an active internet connection and you can trust the simple minimalist installer to do the rest of the job. During installation, Vipre checks if any conflicting program or Antivirus software is installed on the system and prompts you to uninstall it.
To test how good Vipre is at blocking malware, I installed it on a virtual machine low on system resources. What I liked was, Vipre was equally fast on the VM too. I tried visiting a few malicious websites to check how good it is at blocking Malware attacks and I was pretty impressed with the results. The Active Protection is definitely one of the best features of Vipre Antivirus.
In addition to the Antivirus and malware protection features, Vipre Antivirus comes with a bunch of handy system tools like Secure File Eraser, PC Explorer and History Cleaner. Secure file eraser allows you to permanently delete a file from the hard disk making it impossible to recover. This is useful for getting rid of confidential content. PC Explorer allows you to view settings that are normally hidden for the common user. History cleaner gives you a common interface to clear history information of various applications.
Overall, Vipre is good for Malware blocking. Also, it is very lightweight as compared to other antivirus products with similar kind of features. A boot-time scan option is something I missed but Vipre Antivirus is still worth a try.

Next Island is a Massively Multiplayer Online game based on immersive virtual world built with next generation technology and tools. Just like every MMO, there is something for casual gamers and something for hardcore gamers too who can make real world profit using the in-game economy. The best part is that it is a free-to-play online game so you don't need to pay anything for hours of fun in the virtual world.
Next Island is a very beautiful virtual island. It has a very tropical look with a lot of palm trees and beaches. I would've loved to go there if it were for real. To play Next Island, you need an Entropia Universe account. If you don't have one then you can create it by filling up a simple registration form. After that, you'll be required to download the Next Island game client. Once you've installed the client, you can log in and start playing.
Customize the name, look of your avatar, learn how to play and explore the island the first time you play. The game is very simple and you'll keep learning as you keep playing. There is a lot of stuff to explore like virtual professions and you can end up getting real money from the game. Its a free game and a MMO that can earn you money. I see no reason why anyone wouldn't want to try it.

Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Saving Club. If you lack or have insufficient drug coverage, you should definitely have a look or even join the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens to enjoy discount pricing on your medications just like 2 million other people.
For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. Individuals may also join the Prescription saving club for just $5. This is a limited time special pricing offer valid through 31st January 2012. You can save $15 on the membership fee if you enroll in January.
The Walgreens Prescription Savings Club membership is risk free. If you don't save more than the cost of your membership during the course of the year of your membership, then Walgreens promises to refund the difference. So I see no reason why anyone wouldn't want to try it for a year at least. Other benefits offered to the members of the prescription savings club include:
Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services
Visit the Walgreens website for more information. They keep coming up with exciting offers and discounts like this one so I'd suggest you to like Walgreens on Facebook and follow Walgreens on Twitter to stay updated and make the most of their offers.
