Is the Heartbleed bug in your pocket? 80 Android devices ..

... that could be vulnerable

The Web has largely fixed itself from the major Heartbleed OpenSSL bug discovered on April 7, 2014. From the reports we've seen, few major websites are still vulnerable to the bug, and many of the apps and services we use have been patched as well. Unfortunately, there's one festering Heartbleed wound that isn't fixed, and won't get patched anytime soon. As Google admitted on its own blog, phones and tablets running Android 4.1.1 are vulnerable to Heartbleed bug hack attacks.

We've tried but can't find a good listing of what phones and tablets might be vulnerable, so we decided to make one ourselves. Below you'll find a near-complete list of devices we think could potentially have the Heartbleed bug. This is based on information from Wikipedia, wireless carrier websites, and all over. We'll continue to update and fix this list as readers, manufacturers, and carriers respond to our requests for info. We've included any devices we believe could possibly have Android 4.1.1 on them. Recent estimates pin the number of vulnerable devices at about 50 million.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
