In what appears to be a first for Open Source Software, the Firefox web browser is about to be the focus of a full page ad in the New York Times, created, and funded by the Open Source community, and Firefox users that have donated. Firefox looks like becoming the most popular Open Source client side application ever at it’s current rate of adoption.

Sharp are about to release the first PDA with a hard drive in Japan. I believe that this unit is running Linux like several other Zaurus models, but don’t quote me on that.

This model really blurs the line between PDA and Micro Laptop. It has a clamshell design, a QWERTY keyboard, and even a rotating 640×480 screen just like some of the tablet laptops on the market today, and it’s powered by a 416MHz Intel XScale, which probably makes it more powerful then my last full sized laptop (Compaq M700 Armada). Most importantly, it has a 4 gig hard disk.

It’s unlikely we will see it over here, but if it takes off in Japan we might see one of it’s ancestors someday. All I know at this stage, is that if it’s anything like the Zaurus 6000, I want one.

TheRegister has the story along with a couple of nice pictures of the unit.

Google has done it again, come up with something for free that will make your life easier, and finding what you lost possible. How often do you have to look all over your computer for something? Cannot remember where you left it etc. Google now offers a 400k download that will index your hard drive and allow you to search it. It includes indexing of email, im messages, and other things. In fact it may help parents keep track of im’ing and sites visited as it creates a cache. Check it out at:

The key I suppose is privacy (more…)

I recently updated to Thunderbird 0.8 from One of the great new features they have added is RSS support. If you click on:
“tools” -> “account settings” -> “add” button and then select “RSS news and blogs”. From there is it pretty self explanatory. I set mine to check my favourite blogs regularly and essentially get email style notice of new blog postings. For some where I like to stay on top of comments I also added the comment RSS. Give it a whirl, you’ll be happy you did. If you would like to follow our articles via this method, our feed is here:

Corel Software today (October 14th, 2004) announced the purchase of Jasc, the company that produces the popular Paint Shop Pro program. Hopefully it will lead to more widespread use of the program and will not lead to increased costs for this fine program.

Mozilla and Opera have had popup blockers in their browsers for ages, and any user of Windows XP SP2 also have a popup blocker as part of the update to IE6 that SP2 contained. It seems enterprising souls have found a way around the blockers that enables them to continue using popup and popunder ads to collect revenue. The drudge report is one such site.

Ironically I got the popup myself the last time I visited in Firefox, but figured it wasn’t anything new and that I must have triggered it by clicking on something. Turns out I was right… and wrong. The new method involves having the popup triggered by the user following a link, so in essence, the browsers think that it was a user triggered action. So you get the content you wanted, but you also get a popunder ad.
