One of Apple's "big brother" features introduced in Mac OS X Lion 10.7 (now called plain ol' OS X Lion) is the hiding of the user's Library folder. While this may be a fine precaution for inexperienced users, it's a bother for Mac pros. A recent Login Script can fix this so-called feature.
Frugal Friday: Hewlett-Packard Tech Support, Amazon as "Big Brother", Apollo 11 40th Anniversary, Scientific Linux
Frugal Networker Ken Hess and I talk about my experience with Hewlett-Packard's service and support, Amazon's "Big Brother" approach to Kindle digital content rights management, the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and talk with Troy Dawson, one of the lead developers of Scientific Linux, a free clone of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS.
Built-in wireless networking capability is slowly infiltrating the home printer market. At the end of last year, we highlighted a dirt-cheap monochrome laser, the Brother HL-2170W, and both Canon and Epson have recently announced a handful of new all-in-one inkjet printers that also feature built-in 802.
Eek, from Slashdot today:The FBI has confirmed to Popular Mechanics that it's not only adding palm prints to its criminal records, but preparing to balloon its repository of photos, which an agency official says 'could be the basis for our facial recognition.' It's all part of a new biometric software system that could store millions of iris scans within 10 years and has privacy advocates crying foul.
Hey, it's Jake again, Jason's evil twin. My big brother liked my last three columns [1, 2, 3] so he's cool with making it a regular thing.

"It has a web browser, so I can use it for school..." So says my 12-year-old after his older brother bought himself one of Sony's latest handhelds this weekend.
I have been enjoying the mobile office functionality of the HTC Advantage (see my review) and am always on the lookout for other powerful mobile devices that can help me work where I want to be. One of the devices I have been keeping my eye on is the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 that looks a bit like a big brother to my old Sony CLIE UX 50. I just read on jkOnTheRun that the Fujitsu U810 is now up on the Fujitsu website and available for US$999 or US$1099. The only difference between the two is the version of Vista (Home vs. Business) and the inclusion of Microsoft Works or Office. Compared to other devices in this ultra-portable PC category these sound like very good prices and definitely have me interested.

I was just a little old for the Rubik's Cube phenomenon of the 1980's, but my little brother had one and I remember spending the better part of the Christmas vacation he got it trying to solve the puzzle.Now, there are "speedcubers" who compete to see who can solve random cubes the fastest.

In January of 1984, Apple introduced the Macintosh and an innovative and arresting television advertisement, directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Black Hawk Down). In the ad, a Big Brother (Orwell's 1984) figure on a huge screen speaks about "gardens of pure ideology, one people, one cause" to a crowd human automatons.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to make itto a press event which IBM software held earlier this week, entitled "Thefuture of social networks". David Weinberger did, though, andhas a very detailed writeup:They're talking about 1)Social Nets Analytics, a "solution" [yech, I hate that term --What product isn't a solution? Can-opener= Your sealed can solution. Plunger= Your crap won't go down solution] that tracks and analyzes what's beingsaid about you on in blogs, feeds, articles...; 2) Appliki, an "applicationwiki" [= JotSpot competitor, = Why aren't we using Notes for this?];3) Jamalyzer, productizing what IBM uses in its "jams," multi-daycross-company conversations; 4) dogear social bookmarking service [= del.icio.us+ "authentication," i.e. The Folksonomy Torquer]; 5) Fringe,a productiziation of IBM's internal employee phonebook [ = Friendster withoutthe condoms]; Web Activity Management, what seems to be a portal for trackingall your business activities and communications [ = Big Blue Brother];6) Blog and Wiki Central, IBM's internal blog aggregator.Thequestion occurs in his writeup as to why Notes wasn't more a part of thediscussion. It's a good question and one I'll be poking around abit when I get back to the ranch this afternoon. I'm certain thereis very strong awareness amongst those who particpated of the blog, wiki,RSS work that's been done with Notes/Domino to-date.Anyway, check out Weinberger's descriptionof several of the other projects, as well as the discussion during theday. My key takeaway -- IBM software gets social software, and theIBM research team is intent on continuing their efforts in this space. We've already seen productized projects like ActivityExplorer, let's hope some moreof these make the same progression.Link: Johothe Blog: IBM shows del.icio.us for the enterprise, and more>
Wednesday 1/9/2004I'll vote for anything that gets people thinking about science rather than Big Brother or Russell Grant's Guide To Astrology And Your Colon. Ladbrokes is now running a book on scientific discoveries, with the favourite being "Cosmic ray origins determined" at a mere 4/1.

The all in one is on the march at Comdex with big name companes like Hewlett Packard, Epson, and Brother all showing a range of multi-function devices. Price competition is keen and all of the vendors are stressing the cost and space saving appeal of owning one small and inexpensive box over the need to buy a printer, fax, scanner, and photocopier separately.
