Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0

I use Mozilla Thunderbird--the free, open-source mail program developed for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux by the folks behind the Firefox browser--everyday at work. But I can't justify devoting a column to Thunderbird 2.0. This release has some valuable upgrades from Tbird 1.5, but it feels like a missed...

Microsoft Scratches the "Surface"

It's a neat concept, to judge from the demo Microsoft provided earlier this month. The hardware itself takes the form of a glass-topped table hiding a Windows Vista computer, a...
