Mid-May Miscellaneous Updates
Some smaller news items--all of which concern recent subjects of my column and blog--that didn't earn their way into a separate blog post over the last few weeks:
* Cable-modem provider Comcast got in a lot of hot water last year when people discovered that it sometimes blocks the popular BitTorrent file-sharing program. Now a new study reveals that Cox, which provides cable-modem service through most of Fairfax County, has been engaging in the same kind of traffic screening.
* Remember how I complained about the difficulty involved in sharing pictures from a computer to a digital picture frame? One of the oldest digital-frame vendors, Ceiva, just shipped a plug-in for Apple's iPhoto software that lets you send over pictures from a Mac to a Ceiva frame over your home network. (I can't tell you if this is at all easy to use, since the loaner frame went back to Ceiva PR weeks ago.)
* Speaking of comments, this humble blog picked up its 8,000th one sometime last week. (If you count comment spam that gets junked, it's probably had more like 30,000 by now.) Thanks!
