On Thursday, I had a chance to view a working sample of Toshiba's high-end HD DVD player, the HD-XA1 (announced at CES in January). Last week, Toshiba kicked off a 40-city road show, during which the company is visiting more than 130 retail stores to...
Around September of last year, new technology platform announcements were spewing out of Microsoft like last night's liquor from a high-school freshman. Vista, Avalon, Dynamics, WWF (Windows Workflow Foundation), the list goes on -- enough so, in fac...
Well, looks like I didn't miss any world-changing announcements at this morning's Steve Jobs non-keynote at Apple headquarters. My colleague Narasu Rebbapragada made the trek to Cupertino and reports in here on the news, which includes Intel-based M...
It's no secret that I'm a firm believer in virtualising everything from systems and storage to those infrastructure elements, such as LAN segments, that can be abstracted. Zero reality is my mantra.
So the rumors are true: Microsoft is saying that it'll release six different editions of Windows Vista when the OS--due to show up late this year--arrives. (Actually, there will be twelve versions, since everything will be available in both 32- and 6...
Apple's got a worm -- or several, as panicked news headlines of multiple OS X security flaws in the past several weeks have trumpeted. Much has been made in the press about the Mac OS X Leap.A virus and last week's discovery of a Safari metadata exp...
The ever-quotable Sean McGrath penned another of his trademark aphorisms this week: "The library IS the language." By "library" he means the great edifices of reusable code that are, in their modern form, delivered as the core Java and .Net class lib...
If you've bought a new camcorder, you've probably spent some time scrolling through the controls, pressing buttons to see what happens. And you probably came across one particular control that you didn't recognize: white balance. You may have wondere...
Last week, I'm struggling for Redmond news; this week, it's like they have a volcano up there or something. SMS (Systems Management Server) 2003 R2, a Vista Community Technology Preview, Commerce Server 2006 Beta, new announcements about SharePoint ...
I checked back--and <a href="http://pages.google.com/">Google Page Creator</a> is indeed live, at least at the moment. It's a very, very simple Web-site designer that works in your browser. That's not a new idea (CoffeeCup did something along the sam...
I've been remiss in not mentioning ZohoWriter, a free browser-based word processor which, like Writely, offers a rich, fast-evolving set of tools. (Both ZohoWriter and Writely, like most serices built using AJAX techniques, offer desktop-like speed a...
When a computer or an operating system uses software to do anything it normally can't, the enabling technology tends to get labeled "virtualization." Well, don't believe everything you read (except here). Let's see what virtualization is and is not.
It's no secret that I'm a firm believer in virtualizing everything from systems and storage to those infrastructure elements, such LAN segments, that can be abstracted. Zero reality is my mantra.
My first real Java application, back in 1997, was a servlet-based group scheduler. It wasn't quite the smash hit that Hanson's "MMMBop" was that summer, but as some of you may recall, it had its charms.
Yeah, Windows Live is the popular talking-head topic, but I'm just too sick of it. Unproven software, unproven model, just not worth the type time until Redmond releases even a piece of it beyond beta. 'Nuff said. I like to stick to things I can see,...
