The Guardian: ´We are trying to make it better´

As a follow-up to lastweek's article about Notes end-userperceptions, and thesubsequentdiscussionin theblogosphere,The Guardian's CharlesArthur has published a compendiumof comments...some from mails to him directly, others from blogs.I thought for a minute about dissectingthe negative user comments, but Mr. Arthur has included a balance of positiveand negative.  This is also what we saw in TheAge (Australia) discussion.  Ithink the Guardian's readers are well-served by the follow-up.  Hopefullythere will be more positives in the future as Notes 7 takes hold, "Hannover"goes to beta, and there is joy in the world.  (Note: Today's printedition apparently features a photo of Mike Rhodin at Lotusphere with "Hannover"on screen).Link: TheGuardian: 'We are trying to make it better'>

Kazaa upgrade adds filter function

Australia-based Sharman Networks released a new version of its popular Kazaa file-trading software Thursday, adding a new look and a few features to the peer-to-peer program. The software now includes a password-locked "family filter" function that allows parents to block downloads of pornography or other material. A recommendations feature has also been added. The download continues to be bundled with several "adware" programs, as well as Brilliant Digital Entertainment software. The Brilliant Digital software, which will ultimately turn people's computers into a new file-swapping network controlled by that company, has prompted considerable online criticism recently after its purpose was revealed. Brilliant Digital CEO Kevin Bermeister has said the company will ask Kazaa users' permission before activating this software and using people's computer resources, however. --John Borland, Special to ZDNet News
