Upon further reading and looking into it, I want to aleast say what I found out.

It looks like it just sits on the router, now granted it collects info from the users, but your compueter doesn't actually get infected. Also, it's smart enough to find the weakest routers so if there's a protected router with even basic level security it will move on and look for easier targets.

Computer for me is 8 hours at work.
When I get home I ususally spend 1-2 hours watching TV and those same 1-2 hours playing on my iPad.

What's a TV?

Is it a myth?

One of the wonders of the world?

Actually, I stopped watching TV long time ago!

Everything I want I get specifically from the internet!

It is a bad thing, as I don't follow news anymore!

The governor of my province changed two times and I did not realize it until it was too late and embarrassing

I'm just like Smartguy, i stopped watching tv a long time ago too. I spend a lot of my time on-line. There is so much you can do on the interwebs.

Hey guy's don't forget to set your clocks ahead 1 hour this Sunday if you live in the USA. Don't you just love day light savings time?
