Boy those folks at Google are clever when it comes to spam. The question is whether a technology that they probably have in the works in their labs will be one that can and will be embraced by other major participants in the Internet's e-mail ecosystem.
Thousands of products can improve your business or disrupt the status quo. David Berlind guides you through new technologies, services, and ways of thinking that will help your enterprise use IT more effectively.
Theoretically, with all the e-mail that flows through its systems, Yahoo is in a really good position to spot and tag spam as spam. But if the screen shot below (taken today) is any evidence of how Yahoo is faring in the war, then it's time for another approach.
There are probably a lot of CIOs that don't pay diddly squat in the way of attention to blogs. The question is whether there's a new meme bubbling up in the blogosphere that CIOs should be paying attention to: one that basically says the CIO as we know him/her deserves a pink slip.
The noose is slowly tightening. A hundred years ago -- heck, even ten years ago -- for the most part, we didn't have to sacrifice our privacy just to participate in some transaction.

Last week, in the course of asking if Adobe could or should follow in salesforce.com’s platform as a service (PaaS) shoes, I wondered aloud what 300 million devices Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen was referring to when he cited that number as being the current global non-PC footprint of Flash.
Earlier this week, I published my 11th video Tech Shakedown. This one was a critique of HP; not just the failures that buyers of its HP 6000 and 9000 series Pavilion notebook computers are experiencing with their built-in WiFi components, but also for the company's failure to make an appearance in an online forum on its own Web site where its customers are expressing extreme displeasure with HP's handling of the issue.

If the air around your WiFi network is really dirty -- in other words, your WiFi net is having problems but you don't know why -- then maybe you could benefit from one of Fluke Network's mobile products which have matured to the point that they analyze the air just as well as they analyze your hard-wiring (where Fluke made its name).
Within minutes of arriving on the Interop show floor this morning and beginning my search for something cool to videotape for publication here on ZDNet, we found Plat' Home's booth in the back of the exhibitor's area with two very cool products -- both of them tiny Linux servers, one of which fits in the palm of your hand. One is called the OpenBlockS 266 and the other is the OpenMicroServer.
