Privacy: what Windows Live knows about your friends

The way that Windows Live lets you control your privacy online is a model other social networks and aggregators would do well to follow. You can easily make things private, shared with just close friends, open to friends of friends or public to the world and you don't feel like you'll have to write your own social network to do it.

Will Windows Vista live to die another day?

Storage networks

Storage area networks sprang up largely in response to the complexities of managing storage in a Microsoft client-server world - itself ultimately a response to the small machine limitations inherent in both Windows and x86. Today, however, those limitations are receding for most small to mid range businesses and the technologies they spawned should, logically, go out with them.

Review: Pinger Phone for iPhone integrates IM and social networks

A couple of functions I enjoy on my Apple iPhone is interacting with my friends on social networks and via instant messaging. I have been using several different applications for these interactions and with the inability of the iPhone to multi-task using 3rd party applications this is not a great experience. Over the past week, I have been using the new Pinger Phone application that brings in my Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace social network friends and Yahoo!, AIM, Windows Live, and Google Talk IM contacts for a full and complete solution in a single package. There is also a server back end so that text messages can be used to notify you of new IM replies when Pinger Phone is not running.
