Net neutrality or protection racket?

If peer to peer traffic is clogging the Internet and slowing down Skype calls, why not mark it as lower priority and do the download overnight? The software updates and Word of Warcraft files that use P2P quite legally aren't hugely urgent and that kind of 'when you’re not busy' bandwidth usage is how Microsoft makes Windows Update polite (the Background Internet Transfer Service doesn't work quite like P2P but some of the principles are similar).

From the Catbird seat - VMshield 2.0

The traditional leaders in security software along with many startups are trying to be the "go to people" when it comes to security in a virtual world. Each has its own agenda, of course. Catbird has taken one of the more innovative approaches, that is monitoring network traffic to dynamically learn what is happening on the network. This non-intrusive approach means that it is not necessary for organizations to install clients or agents on every physical system and in every virtual machine. It also means that Catbird has the capability of securing the environment even if other forms of virtualization, such as access virtualization or application virtualization are deployed as well as virtual machine software.

Apple, not Gear, deserves the blame for iTunes crashes

It’s now been a week since Apple’s botched release of iTunes 8, which caused a tidal wave of Vista crashes before it was hastily rolled back. Judging from traffic on Apple’s support forum, pulling the new Apple USB driver and replacing it with the file from iTunes 7.7 succeeded in quieting most of the complaints from most Windows users, although a handful of customers report that they’re still having problems. After looking more closely at the other driver, from Gear Software, I've concluded that it was unrelated to these crashes and might even be an innocent bystander in another iTunes support headache involving missing CD and DVD drive letters.

Managing research instruments on the Web

Telescopes, supercomputers or microscopes can cost millions of dollars. The research institutions which bought them often try to share the costs with other laboratories. And they're also tempted to use Internet to allow remote control of their expensive systems. But Internet traffic is not reliable enough to control a multi-million-dollar experiment in real time. So, Ohio State University (OSU) researchers have developed RICE (Remote Instrumentation Collaboration Environment) to do a better job. The software has already been successfully tested by various research institutes in Columbus, Ohio. And it will soon become publicly available.
