Fancy An Interactive Tour of Abbey Road Studios?

Abbey Road Studios, in London, describes itself as probably the most famous recording studios in the world.  And with everyone from the Beatles to Adele having recorded tracks there, they are probably right.  The pedestrian crossing outside the studios, featured on the cover of the Beatles' Abbey Road album, is still visited and photographed by hundreds of people every day, as you can observe from the webcam at http://www.abbeyroad.com/crossing which shows countless people holding up the traffic to take their own picture.

Try A Fun Online CISO Role-Play Game

Security company Trend Micro's latest promotional idea is actually a really neat one.  They've put together a role-play game in which you play the part of a Chief Information Security Officer for a tech company which is faced with problems regarding the security of its product.  In the game, you need to watch a series of video clips which explain the current problem, and then make a choice from 3 or 4 options as to how you're going to handle the scenario.

Comprehensive Free PHP Programming Environment Gets Update

Code Lobster is a free IDE (integrated development environment) that helps you write web-based code in PHP, Javascript, CSS and HTML.  Think of it as being rather like Microsoft Visual Studio, but with PHP as its main supported language.  And for what it's worth, Visual Studio doesn't really support PHP at all without add-ons.

It can monitor Windows PCs and servers, Linux machines, and just about everything else.  It can even monitor specific applications.

Protect Yourself From Inquisitive Website Operators

Play The Murder Detective In This Superb Game

It's been a while since I wrote about a downloadable free game for Windows, so here's a bit of a stunner.  "Who Is The Killer" is a graphical text-heavy adventure game in which you play the detective, trying to work out who killed one of the 7 people at a gathering.  Follow the clues, investigate the scenes, play the word games in order to win more powers, and hopefully you'll solve the crime.

Bring Web Analytics To Your Own Browsing Habits

If there's one aspect of life that suffers when we go online, it's privacy.  The news media are constantly full of stories about how web sites can track your every move in order to show you the adverts that it feels are most relevant to you.  This extensive data analysis goes under the general name of web analytics.
