I was a little slow to jump on the Twitter bandwagon, and my hesitancy remained for using a Twitter app, rather than just the Web site. I started using TweetDeck a few days ago, and mostly because I was tired of not being able to see when someone referenced me without doing a search for my name at search.

This is a good-looking 14in. ultraportable with a particularly nice display. However, the design leaves it short of space for ports and connectors, while the keyboard has too much flex for comfort.
I'm not a fan of April Fools Day. Trying to separate fact from fiction gets harder each year -- as a new fake blog post on an alleged "IE 8.1" release makes clear.
So tomorrow is April 1st and the sky will be falling shortly. We all know that the 4 forms of the Conficker worm are out there, ready to do something tomorrow that will probably be a pain in the butt at best and seriously disruptive at worst.
Since attending the Parallel’s Summit 2009 back in January I’ve been trying to listen out for virtualisation news more intently than ever. Although many companies are jumping on the bandwagon, it is the processor builders at AMD and Intel that seem to have cornered the market on snappy news angles as they talk about parallelism and concurrency in the context of server consolidation.
Security measures and other IT controls don’t work unless they’re implemented consistently, predictably, and with integrity. The IT audit director develops and schedules internal audits to measure and...
Nearly 3,000 Web sites were blocked daily in March, finds new MessageLabs report. Also, Asia-Pacific economies such as China and India, had most spam.
The Linux Foundation is ready and willing to help companies get Microsoft's FAT out of their products.In his blog posted today about TomTom's settlement with Microsoft that was announced yesterday, foundation executive director Jim Zemlin said the case only proves that Microsoft was taking aim against Linux when it filed its lawsuit against TomTom last month and that it only undermines Microsoft's efforts to keep its technology relevant.
Region's enterprise software segment is forecast to grow 3.1 percent, ahead of worldwide "flat" growth and Europe's negative growth, says Gartner.
Which do you prefer?Even if it were true, Ballmer's "$500 Apple tax" comment is stupid: Microsoft's profits are way beyond Apple's.
Gartner on Tuesday cut its IT spending forecast for 2009 to $3.2 trillion, down 3.
Netbook purveyor MSI today launched its Wind Top AE1900, a nettop (as in, desktop with netbook innards) that shows a little white, a little glass, and suspiciously, a considerable dose of Apple-styled class.Rhyming aside, this machine could be a great little kiosk or thin client:An 18.
Microsoft may view its legal settlement with TomTom as a patent victory of sorts but it's a hollow and meaningless win in the eyes of some in the open source community.Open Invention Network CEO Keith Bergelt said the settlement announced yesterday was anticipated and expected and he is "nonplussed" with the result.
The other day, my 13-year old was writing an essay for school and told me that "we really need an encyclopedia on our computer." I chuckled and then did a double-take.
In practice, studies like this can easily be a political sop. They are easier to bury than your kids' pet goldfish. Had the election turned out differently, that's what likely would have happened, because the previous government was deeply attached to proprietary models.
Ever the rumor mongers, the fellows at DotDosh have posted a sweet-looking (clearly unofficial) concept mock-up of Apple's next iPhone in an attempt to answer the question, "What direction should Apple head in next?""Apple iPhone Pro," anyone?
But why? I'll admit now that Encarta hasn't always been at the forefront of my mind when researching something; nor has it been a major part of my studies, life in general or search results on Google.
Google has a bevy of side projects and now there's another one: A reported $100 million venture capital fund. Google announced its venture fund on its blog post and like all things the search giant does it has garnered a lot of attention (Techmeme).
