Freeware VM VirtualBox Feedback Page Updated
Added a Macbook Air w/OS X 10.9 user's report on installing Virtualbox to run Windows 8.1/Quickbooks in VM on our page of mac user feedback on Freeware VM VirtualBox.
Apple/products related News/Reviews/Updates/PR:

I linked to the updated WD utilities, but I have never used them, nor do I ever plan to. (In case anyone missed this earlier, here's WD's post on External Drives Experiencing Data Loss with Mavericks where they mention a WD software uninstaller, now MIA.)
BTW: WD says Installing the updated software 'removes' the older version (no kidding), but that's not an uninstaller. Some want to just remove WD software w/o having to install another version.
