We care deeply about improving the way we discover, organize, share, and enjoy our media.
Some of us are movie buffs. Some of us are passionate about music. And some of us are budding photographers or videographers. We're from all over this amazing world of ours and many of us have joined Plex after being a member of the Plex community, which we continue to hold near and dear to our heart. We also love how mobile and connected devices make it possible to enjoy our media in every room in the house or on the go, but we think it can be so much better. That's why we're committed to creating a rich and seamless experience for curating and enjoying all your media, wherever you are.
Helping People Sleep Through the Power of Light
f.lux automatically calibrates the computer or device display's color temperature to the time of the day. The user also has the option of choosing a color preset or disabling f.lux for an hour and returning the screen to its normal calibration. The software offers five preset color settings on OS X: candle, tungsten, halogen, fluorescent, and daylight. For Microsoft Windows, the halogen, fluorescent, and daylight settings are available—as well as Incandescent, Dim Incandescent, Candle as well as Ember. However the user can choose any color temperature from 1200K to sunlight, in 100K increments, so these presets exist mostly as starting off points for further tweaking to taste. The iOS version uses the same presets as the Mac version.
A "Movie Mode" is available on Windows and OS X that reduces the adjustment for 2.5 hours, which is long enough for viewing most feature films.
The Story behind Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Back in 2004, Marcin Kleczynski picked up a nasty malware infection one day while cruising the Internet in search of video games. This despite having a popular paid antivirus in place. (Sound familiar?)
No big deal. He worked as a computer tech after school. How long could it take to remove a small bit of malicious code?
Try three solid days.
Three days searching the Internet and consulting with other people on security forums who had similar problems. Who had also come to the same two conclusions:
- There was a lot of new malware out there.
- Antivirus couldn’t handle it.
So Marcin set out to build the world a better malware fighter. He taught himself code and eventually engineered a small but highly effective anti-malware tool, the precursor to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, that quickly became popular in the security community.
More importantly, in the community Marcin discovered a fanatical band of malware experts. They dissected malicious code, traded malware intel, and helped desperate folks who came to the message boards in search of answers.
So when it came to expanding the Malwarebytes team, he hired from this band. They knew what worked, what didn’t, and were completely comfortable breaking with conventional wisdom.
Today, the team numbers more than 200 and is distributed globally, with offices in San Jose, California, Clearwater, Florida, Tallinn, Estonia, and Cork, Ireland.
Malwarebytes products have been downloaded over 500 million times and have removed over five billion pieces of malware. The Malwarebytes line has expanded to include purpose-built business products that now protect over 50,000 businesses. Revenue has grown 100% year over year.
