Microsoft rumored to be investing in Google Android rival Cyanogen

Update: Bloomberg Business is now corroborating the earlier WSJ story, adding that the two companies are in talks to create "a version of the Android mobile-operating system that's more friendly to Microsoft services".

Original Story: According to the WSJ, Microsoft may be one of a handful of companies investing in Cyanogen. Cyanogen started off as a customized version of the Android operating system named CyanogenMod back in 2009 but has grown to a business of 80 people named Cyanogen, Inc. starting in 2013. The company co-launched their version of the Android OS on the OnePlus One smartphone in 2014.

Now, Cyanogen is looking for money, and Microsoft is reportedly putting cash into the company as a minority investor.

AVG AntiVirus 2015 review

AVG has been on the PC antivirus scene for a long time, and has traditionally been the go-to free antivirus program for ages. Competitors now offer excellent alternatives, but AVG has kept up with the times.

For an extra $15/year you can get anti-phishing and enhanced firewall through AVG Internet Security 2015. A full feature comparison is available at AVG's site.
