Wait a minute. Is iRiver looking to get into the PVR market all of a sudden? Well, not exactly. They do appear however, to be interested in seeing what can be done in the support market for Portable Multimedia Centers.
Oh this has just got to tick off MS a little bit. It seems that Microsoft has in fact, lost the Eolas patent case after all. Better luck next time, guys.
Hey, making DRM Open Source might be a cool idea in concept, but I am just not seeing how this could float. DRM by its very nature means that it is restrictive and annoying. Therefore, I believe that this pretty much counts out OSS as …continue reading
Thunderbird security concerns have been zapped away with the latest updates. Hopefully things will calm down some in the security dept for the OS email client. Then again, if things did calm down with the security holes, that could indicate that we are simply missing …continue reading

One of my current projects is to re-outfit a local private school’s computer lab. The current hardware is tired; the software is a Swiss cheese maze of security holes. I am the administrator, and I cannot keep up with the dying hard drives and Windows …continue reading
Windows XP makes it very simple to move from an old computer to a new one. Many people are often reluctant to get a new computer because they do not want to lose their existing files and settings. Fortunately, Windows XP includes a nifty utility …continue reading
While it’s doubtless there are more factors that contribute to social ills than the findings of this particular study, it’s interesting, nonetheless. Even if its premise may be motivated by the author’s politics (in academia, as any other field, isn’t that always the case?), this …continue reading
