If you haven’t heard by now, there is a very serious security threat on the internet. It is a vulnerability in OpenSSL. Initially the suggestion was to change every password you used. If you change your password before a site is fixed, you would then have to change it again after the fix has been applied. This tool will help you find out if a site you use has been affected:
Also, many sites are also stating their status in regards to Heartbleed on their home page. As always, the suggestion is to never use a password twice and make them more difficult. If you want to read more about this virus, go to http://www.symantec.com/outbreak/?id=heartbleed. Apps

How to save a wet phone or tablet
I have suggested the hair dryer myself from time to time, but these steps will give you a much greater chance of reviving that phone.
Turn your phone off immediately! Don’t even waste time trying to dry it with a towel.
Dry the outside of the phone with a towel, making sure to get those ports that have openings. Take out the sim card or battery if possible and dry them, too.
Put the device in a zip top bag along with a handful of silica gel packets. They will help to absorb the moisture. To be prepared, either collect them when you see them or you can order them from Amazon.com.
This is the really hard part – wait 72 hours.
Turn the phone on. If you did everything right, your phone should be working properly.
