“Residential broadband ubiquity is not yet the case,” said Todd Chanko, a JupiterResearch analyst.
Allison: I have always been concerned that trends in intellectual property policies have been going too far in favor of entertainment conglomerates and major pharmaceutical firms at the expense of ordinary citizens and patients. The passage of the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) in 1998 first awakened me to this trend. The RIAA’s and MPAA’s interference in P2P-sharing networks, through lawsuits, political lobbying and flooding them with bogus files, seemed to threaten one of the most democratic institutions in the digital sphere.
One phone fits all: Britain’s Vodafone, the world’s largest mobile phone carrier, has asked cell phone manufacturers to develop next-generation (3G) handsets that will work in the United States and Europe.

A group of Netscape employees who were also Mozilla contributors were really frustrated with the Netscape’s insistence on making the feature set of its browser subservient to the business model of advertising for Netscape.com.

It’s not a luxury thing. It’s for practical use.”
Every Sunday night, Netflix’s servers take a beating as they stream movies to the company’s 23 million customers. It’s the busiest time of the week, but by 4 am on Monday most of those movie-watchers have gone to bed. That makes for an up-and-down kind of business; and one that’s particularly well-suited to cloud computing, where users pay for servers only when they need them.
Blue Security’s Blue Frog antispam tool worked by having customers install a small piece of software in their browsers that they used to report spam. After aggregating the reports, Blue Security would try to contact the spammers, the websites of companies being advertised and their ISPs to try to convince the spammers to clean their lists of e-mail accounts on the company’s Do Not Intrude list.

It’s simple to use, and the software guides you through the setup — you set the contrast of the screen to the max, if you like you can put the box on the desk next to the monitor to measure the ambient light first, then you hang the ColorMunki (actually a spectrophotometer) over the front of the screen. After giving instructions on setting brightness and contrast, various colors flash on screen. After a minute or two, you’re done, and the profile is stored and put into use. On a Mac you can see this in the Displays preference pane.
