Bing ads lead to more malware; new Mac Trojan in the wild

Malware authors will do just about anything to fool you into installing their software. A popular target is search engine advertising, which one gang is using on Microsoft's search results. In a separate attack, Mac users are being targeted by a Trojan that mimics a Flash installer.

Microsoft: Silverlight content is searchable, too

When Adobe, Google and Yahoo announced earlier this week that content stored in its Flash file format would be more easily indexable by Google's and Yahoo's search engines, Microsoft was nowhere to be found. It took a while, but I got Microsoft to explain how/why Silverlight already is indexable....

HP iPAQ 210 PDA starts shipping for US$449

It is quite rare to find a dedicated PDA without phone functionality today, but it looks like HP is now shipping their iPAQ 210 Enterprise Handheld. This is quite a powerful PDA with a 624MHz processor, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, integrated Compact Flash and integrated Secure Digital slots, 4 inch VGA (480x640 pixels) display, integrated WiFi and integrated Bluetooth radios. Actually, the Dell Axim X51v I have from a couple years ago has just about the same specs, the display is 3.7 inches instead of 4 inches. However, you can no longer find the Axim X51v or HP hx4700 so this new HP is really your only choice for a high-end stand alone PDA.

Sign language for your cellphone

If you live in the UK, you now have an access to a dictionary of 5,000 words in British Sign Language (BSL) and their accompanying downloadable videos for your cellphones. The interface of this video dictionary, available at Mobilesign.org is even more Spartan than Google's home page. But it's very easy to use: you either search for a word to know if a language sign is associated with it or browse an alphabetical list. Then you download the compact video for your phone. The Centre for Deaf Studies (CDS) of the University of Bristol has released this free tool for everyone who works with deaf people, has deaf customers or just want to learn the BSL signs. Their next step will be to provide users with a phrasebook.

Nokia brings "desktop search" to mobile devices

I LOVE desktop search tools like Google Desktop and Windows Desktop Search and remember talking with Microsoft about bringing this search functionality to mobile devices. Microsoft has a integrated search tool in Windows Mobile devices, but it has never been a very strong utility. I just read the Nokia press release announcing the release of Nokia Mobile Search that brings powerful search functionality from the desktop to the device. Nokia Mobile Search allows you to search emails, text messages, calendar entries, videos, music files, and more. Nokia Mobile Search indexes your compatible device for faster search results. I could not find any information on whether external storage flash cards or hard drives, like the 4 and 8 GB drives on N91 devices, are indexed. I would think this is where the real power of device search would be as storage cards get larger and larger in capacity with more and more files being stored on them.

Mashup Makeover

The “Personal Mashup Recorder�?Commendo’s Voyager™ service records for replay on the user’s PC, virtually all standard HTTP delivered content, including mashups or interactivity-enabling software (Flash, AJAX and JavaScript). Replaying mashups on the PC provides significant performance improvements to the user experience, while also making the mashups portable. This hands-on session will show how to use Commendo’s Voyager™ as a “Personal Mashup Recorder�? to record existing mashups, along with techniques and approaches which you can use to create new mashup categories. Three mashup types will be shown and discussed: Entertainment (Videos), Mapping, and Search/RSS. In addition you will learn how using existing debugging tools with recorded mashups can speed up development. Voyager processes mashups in parallel, and is multi-processor enabled, allowing mashups to take full advantage of today’s multi-core PCs. Mashup recording requires no changes to the underlying applications, the mashup code, or content conversion by the user. Download Voyager ™ to your Windows PC prior to the conference at www.commendo.com.
