Comments On Comments

A couple of days ago, this blog crossed the thousand-comment line--not bad for a couple of months. Thanks, everybody! Along the way, I've learned a great deal about a variety of topics: for instance, the history of AM radio, the inner workings of the patent office, software development for Palm...

Haven't Had Enough Of Me? Listen Up...

Google Preps a New Pack

Yesterday, Google updated its free, quick-installing set of add-ons to Windows, Google Pack (which I reviewed favorably shortly after its arrival in early 2006). The latest revisions, however, don't add any significant new capabilities, and, in one case amount to a bit of a downgrade: * The six-month trial copy...

A Big Deal For a Little Internet Provider

My inbox had a surprise this morning--a notice from the CEO of my Internet provider, announcing that Best Buy had acquired the company. That was upsetting news to me, and to many other customers of Speakeasy Network, a Seattle-based firm that has carved out a niche for itself among many...

Pet Peeve: Sharing-Proof Web Addresses

A few minutes ago, I was going to share a Web address with a reader--it was a tech-support article on Intuit's TurboTax site. But my browser window only showed the first part of this address. When I pasted it into an e-mail message, the following gobbledygook sprawled across the screen:...

Is A Lack of Web Radio a Turn-Off?

Here's a hypothetical question for you: Suppose you had a little box that plugged into your TV and let you listen to, look at and watch all the digital media on your computer--your music, your photos, and TV-show and movie downloads. And it did all these things with an ease...
