Criminalizing Invasion of Privacy

Criminalizing Invasion of Privacy At least in one area, the Federal Government is taking invasion of privacy seriously. In the wake of the "pretexting" scandal at Hewlett-Packard, where HP snoops obtained phone records by pretending to be the customers, Congress is making that kind of privacy invasion (buying, selling, or obtaining phone records without a customer's permission, and even to learn the identity of undercover law enforcement officers, as well as suspected confidential informants and witnesses) a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. This item from Information Week may portend a new attitude that could spill over into other aspects of this sensitive issue.

Office Data Format Becomes Standard

Office Data Format Becomes Standard Score one for Microsoft. An international panel has approved a data format that Microsoft uses in its Office products as an accepted standard. The move represents an attempt to prevent the software giant from creating new products that produce incompatible output files, but it also discourages people from seeking a different open standard.

Stilling the Hard Drive

Stilling the Hard Drive Notebook battery life depends primarily on two power hogs — the display and the hard drive. Dropping the display may be impractical, but Samsung has introduced a system that replaces the hard drive with flash memory — which has no moving parts. This Forbes article says a high price tag is its biggest drawback for now.

No Dropped Calls

No Dropped Calls Instant communication also means instant frustration when your cell phone drops a call. The San José Mercury News reports that a chip start-up in Santa Clara, CA has a way to clean up wireless signals, removing noise that can interfere with cell calls and with other kinds of wireless data transfer.

Wireless Safety First

Wireless Safety First Hand-held communication devices have revolutionized the way that we communicate. But they have also given people the chance to show how little common sense they actually have. The Seattle Times tells how one man caused a three-car pileup because he was tapping away at his Blackberry while driving. Is there a lesson here?

No Rush to Adopt Vista

No Rush to Adopt Vista Microsoft's Windows Vista has drawn mixed reactions from IT leaders. Vista promises a more intuitive interface, more features, and greater security, but its cost, minimum hardware requirements, and possible incompatibility with some legacy software make managers hesitant. Mass migration will probably wait until businesses replace their computers; the new ones will come with Vista installed.

Faster Communications

Faster Communications Just when the business world is finally becoming accustomed to 10 gigabit per second speeds, industry experts are predicting 100 gigabit Ethernet communications will become standard before 2020. According to this article from PC World, both users and manufacturers expect applications to increasingly demand those speeds.

Practical Tips for a Healthy PC

Practical Tips for a Healthy PC Ah, never again to see the infamous 'blue screen of death'. Protecting your PC also protects your business. This column from entrepreneur.com offers some sage and common sense advice on how to keep your machine healthy and your data secure. Its guidelines are relatively painless, unlike the consequences of not following them.

Keeping Your Data Safe from Prying Computers

Keeping Your Data Safe from Prying Computers Putting layers of security between your data and the unprotected jungle of the Internet presents a formidable challenge. Many companies rely on so-called "overlay networks" that provide encryption and comprehensive authentication before decryption. This piece from NetworkWorld examines the advantages of this useful technology, and also points out its limitations.

Making Sense of a 2000-Year-Old Computer

Making Sense of a 2000-Year-Old Computer
We think of computers as a modern invention. Yet more than 100 years ago, scientists discovered pieces of what they believe is a 2000-year-old analog computer used to take astronomical measurements and make predictions. Evidence suggests the unit was not a "one-off." Its construction indicates it was one of many made at that time.
