Yet while some watched the unfolding national events with skepticism, resigned to what they believed was the inevitability of chaos, others, the vast majority, looked upon our nation with a tempered hope; cheering us on not only because they believed in us but because they knew that if Kenya succeeded they too would succeed. For all that has been said of our nation, the records of history will attest to a number of undeniable facts. he addedHe thanked Kenyans for exercising restraint and good judgement in times of tumultuous moments in government.Where the system failed, Kenyans did not. Where decisions were delayed and ambiguity prevailed, Kenyans were patient-seeking and waiting for clarity. Where contentious issues rose up to stir up dissent, Kenyans exercised restraint, peacefully sought redress and submitted themselves again to the constitution and the rule of law- united in the belief that God's judgement would guide that of men, he said.He has promised free maternity health care to all women within 100 days of taking office and free lap tops to school-going children, beginning next year.Kenyatta becomes the first Kenyan president under the new constitution that has trimmed the powers of the president as the devolved system of government takes effect. He was born in 1961, just two years before Kenya attained independence under his father, Jomo Kenyatta as President, and his competitor, Raila Odinga's father, as vice-president.He was named Uhuru, Kiswahili for independence, in anticipation of the freedom the country was to receive after years of colonisation from the British government.

A graduate of political science from Amherst College in the US, Kenyatta first ventured into politics as a presidential candidate in 2002, when former Kenyan dictator, Daniel Arap Moi, propped him up as his preferred successor.He was trounced by the outgoing president, Mwai Kibaki. In 2007, Kenyatta teamed up with Kibaki to fight off challenge from outgoing prime minister Raila Odinga. The election ended in a stalemate and Kibaki was sworn in at night, leading to outrage and massive violence, during which more than 1,000 people were killed and about 350,000 displaced. To end the unrest, a coalition government was formed with Kibaki as president, sharing power with Odinga, who took oath as the prime minister.Kenyatta was appointed Odinga's deputy and minister for trade, and later finance minister. He was named alongside his deputy, William Ruto, journalist Joshua Sang, former head of public service, Francis Muthaura, former police ccommissioner, Hussein Ali and former industrialisation minister, Henry Kosgey, as the key perpetrators of the infamous 2008 post-election violence.Henry Kosgey and Hussein Ali have since been exonerated by the ICC while accusations against Muthaura were dropped for lack of enough evidence, after key witnesses said to have recanted their statements.

You must therefore keep separate backups.The drawback with full disk encryption is that the hard drive is, in effect, unencrypted when you are using it. This is a good thing because you want everything to work normally. However, once you have entered the password, anyone who can access your PC can also access your data. If you are logged on and using your laptop in a coffee shop, for example, your data isn't protected.There are other problems with full disk encryption — see Gizmo's Encryption is Not Enough — which suggest that other approaches may be better. If you need to carry personal data around, then I suggest you encrypt specific files and/or folders, or use an encrypted USB memory stick. Someone should then need at least two passwords — for your user account, and your encryption — even if they have physical access to your laptop while it's running.To do this, set Windows so that the on/off button puts the PC into sleep mode and a password is required when it is woken up. This works well with Windows 8 since it should restart almost instantly (as Macs have done for years).You could follow Gizmo's recommendation and use Sophos Free Encryption. This unrestricted freeware program works much like a zip compression program. It seems to have been removed from Sophos's list of Free Tools but, at the time of writing, you can download it directly from Sophos using this link. If you decide to try AxCrypt instead, decline all offers to install the other programs it tries to foist on you, especially Open Candy.

Sophos provides a free encryption program, which is a rebadged version of Utimaco's PrivateCrypto, which Sophos owns
Note: you may be using a version of Windows that already includes an Encrypting File System. This wasn't part of the Windows XP Home version, but home users can do the job by right-clicking on the folder they want to protect, selecting Properties, clicking the tab for Sharing, and checking the box for Make this folder private. However, this only works if the hard drive is using the NTFS file system, not the old FAT file allocation table from MS-DOS.Bearing in mind the risk of theft and the hassles of travelling overseas — where some official may well demand that you provide access to your PC — it's better to carry laptops that contain little or no personal data. (If you need to work on a flight, keep the data on a USB stick, or on an SD card that you can extract from and then re-insert into your digital camera or similar device.)You can store the bulk of your personal files in password-protected cloud services such as Dropbox and Microsoft SkyDrive, or store them on the PC or server you keep at home. You can get to them remotely using a VPN (virtual private network) or an easy-to-use web-based system such as LogMeIn.

After that, you need to take great care with your web browsers. It's very important that you never use a browser to store passwords. If you do, someone who gets into your PC can easily access your cloud services and data.You can also set up your browsers so that they delete everything when you close them down. This means clearing the cache where temporary internet files are stored, and deleting other browser data. WikiHow has an illustrated guide, How to Clear Your Browser's Cache, which covers all the main browsers.An alternative is to use the browser's InPrivate browsing mode, Incognito or (in Firefox) open a Private Window for browsing. These don't save data or clear it automatically when you end the session.Another idea is to run the browser in a separate sandbox using a program such as Sandboxie for Windows. This not only stops data leaking into Windows caches, it helps protect you from malware. This is why Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 10 already have their own built-in sandboxing.

Finally, it's a good idea to keep a copy of Piriform's free CCleaner installed on Windows laptops. This removes temporary files, history files, cookies, logs, auto-complete entries and other detritus from browsers and many common programs. It also includes a Windows Registry cleaner. For best results, run it immediately after a re-boot, with no other programs running.Programs like CCleaner always carry some risk, but I've been using it since at least 2005 (the earliest mention I can find in Ask Jack) without any problems. However, download it from the Piriform site, and do not follow any scam links from adverts on Google. Also, when installing CCleaner, remember to untick the offers to Install Google Chrome as my default browser and Also include Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer. Free software suppliers get paid for installing foistware but it should always be provided on an opt in basis. You should never have to opt out. That's evil.Finally, you may want to consider installing tracking software on your laptop, to help you find it again if it is lost or stolen. Prey is probably the most popular free option, though it also offers Pro accounts at $5 to $399 per month. Prey password-protects your data and lets you wipe stored passwords remotely.

With Prey, you want the thief to be able to access your PC, so remember to install a Guest account with limited functionality.When Finnish startup Eve-Tech launched its first device, the T1 tablet computer, it received positive reviews for its premium feel and budget price.However, there was also a lot of feedback from reviewers and users about how it could have been better, including criticism about the quality of the outer casing, ports and rear camera.The feedback got co-founder and CEO Konstantinos Karatsevidis thinking: what if those people could provide feedback during the design process so it could be incorporated into the final product?“We decided to get those people into one big online community to create the product that’s perfect,” said Karatsevidis. “We are crowd-developing consumer electronics together with end users.”Eve-Tech built an online platform where technology enthusiasts not satisfied with existing products could sign up and help shape the design of the company’s second device, a Windows laptop-tablet hybrid computer called the Eve V.The idea has drawn interest from Intel and Microsoft, with the former investing a six-figure sum and the latter “heavily supporting” the project.For the past 12 months, about 1,000 active members of the forum have been suggesting and voting for features, specifications, components and design elements for the Eve V in a project codenamed Pyramid Flipper. The community has direct access to Eve-Tech’s product team, which includes people who worked on the Apple iPhone 6, Fitbit and Nokia devices.

“A lot of people are really unsatisfied by the devices on the market and would love to make something better,” said Karatsevidis, who says the community has been particularly useful for deciding where to make compromises. “You always have to make trade-offs. If you want a longer lasting battery you have to have slower charging.”Similarly, Eve-Tech’s in-house industrial designers wanted a slim device with as few ports as possible. “But 90% of people would make it 1mm thicker if they could have all the ports and real all-day battery life,” he said.The result is something Karatsevidis claims is “really different” from other products on the market, including those made by Microsoft, Samsung and Apple.The Eve V is a Windows 10 device with a 12-hour battery life, 12.3-inch screen and plenty of ports (Thunderbolt, USB A and USB C). It has four speakers and a dedicated audio amplifier. The body is carved from a single piece of aluminium and comes in a range of colors; the community is currently selecting the final options. Its closest equivalent is probably the Surface Pro 4, but the Eve V will be significantly cheaper, Karatsevidis said.A lot of people are really unsatisfied by the devices on the market and would love to make something better
