It cost me 30 minutes to get it figured out, and i really hope you appriciate it.

On connect there are several forums about reward points and how to get the desired items.
But a lot of the good and very worth full articles are contributed by non US citizens. I see a lot of posts from contributors that live in India.
Especially for them i have some good tips to make sure that they are not only rewarded for theyre articles but they also can get it in India or other non US country's

First of all you have to see how many points you have.
When you have 1000 points, you can redeem them for 150$ worth in certificates. Now you have to find an item that you want to have.
Follow the steps below and you will see how to get an Acer Aspire 8.9" portable and get it shipped to India. This is only an example, so use this to get what you really want.

From my experience the new points system has disappointed people because earlier when i post a Tech Question on forum I used to get lots of reply and some of them are really usefull but now things have changed I have to wait for a day or more to get a single answer .as people are now not interested in 1 point.
which is also affecting the forum in some way. now people try to post there querry and keep themself to their problem only they are now not interested to solve others problem .

Symantec Connect is a pro-active and solutions oriented website. This is one forum that different IT professionals are sharing valuable knowledge voluntarily thus solved threads are treated like holy grails as per one of our administrators. Many a times we see the solutions by browsing the different topics available that is why the leadership is discouraging comments that are non-technical or not helpful to other readers. But what is helpful or informative and what is not? That is a question that I usually ask myself when contributing to this site. Does an affirmative comment praising a fellow community member on a specific comment not helpful? Well, some of our replies had been deleted due to that.

What if we are urge to comment due to a solution that helped us or moved us? what then shall we do? I was told that the thumbs up option would be used for this respond and you can do that once per issue or discussed blog. Our forum's admins has a lot of...

Hi I was just wondering what the Virus of the Future would be and possible impacts it could cause.

Right now at present time the things that are impacted by viruses are computers and mobilephones etc...
What would it be like in the Futures
I thinks cars would also be impacted knowing that most of the cars nowadays have computer chips on it.but how it would be impacted that I don't know yet it could be possible through the radio knowing that you can now plugin Ipods and USB devices on it .Home Appliances could also be impacted knowing that they have chips on it.

There are a lot of this that could be impacted but we never could tell till it arrives but am sure Symantec would always be there to ensure protection to users.

So this week is pretty exciting. For the third year in a row, we're going to be showing off a prototype at the DEMO conference. Two years ago we launched Identity Defender (I was part of that one), which went on to become Norton Identity Safe—a technology available today in our award-winning Norton Internet Security and Norton 360 products. Last year our Symantec Research Labs Advanced Concepts group unveiled Project Watchdog, which today is known as Norton Online Family...
