QuoteIn its lawsuits, the RIAA compares the use of the campus search software--variously called "Phynd," "Flatlan" or "Direct Connect"--to the defunct Napster service, dubbing the services "local area Napster networks."

QuoteUnder the new plan, Mozilla will abandon its XPFE toolkit for creating the browser's user interface. Instead, the main Mozilla code will come from the Phoenix project, a stripped-down version of Mozilla written with Extensible User Interface Language (XUL). XUL, introduced four years ago by Netscape Communications and Mozilla engineers, renders the browser with standard Web technologies, rather than platform-specific computer coding languages.

QuoteFor a 1.x-inch panel, TFT LCD commands a 70% price premium over a CSTN LCD panel. The actual difference in price varies according to the particular screen size and pixel format. Many manufacturers are taking advantage of this price differential and utilizing CSTN LCDs as the main display for low- to mid-range cell phones, and as the sub-display in high-end clam-shell design cell phones. In the 2.x-inch size range, the TFT LCD price premium compared to CSTN LCDs was 60%, or about US$10, in the first quarter of 2003, and is forecast to decrease to 40%, or just US$6, by mid-2004. This makes TFT LCDs a more attractive option.
QuoteKoetzle noted that while Microsoft's patches for the last nine high-profile Windows security holes predated such attacks by an average of 305 days, too few customers applied the fixes because "administrators lacked both the confidence that a patch won't bring down a production system and the tools and time to validate Microsoft's avalanche of patches."
QuoteFourteen months after being marketed to businesses and five months after sales to individuals commenced, the Transporter remains more of a novelty than the revolutionary transportation device trumpeted by tech industry luminaries and others. You can usually spot one being demonstrated at an amusement park, or your postal carrier may be testing one, but city streets and factory floors are practically devoid of the gizmos. The device has a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour, up to three to four times the average walking pace.

QuoteThe new installation software detects relevant details about the system its running on and automatically installs the correct drivers. The goal is to make it as easy to keep a Linux installation up to date as a Windows-based PC, Fear said.
QuoteThe nanocrystal layer is far thinner than the silicon dioxide, Chang said. In fact, it's not even solid, and more like frost on a window. Although silicon is traditionally an electrical conductor, at these levels the quantum nature of the material takes over, and it becomes an insulator, trapping electrons and thereby retaining data.
QuoteIf successful, the move would bypass some of the legal wrangling between Sun and its arch-rival Microsoft. Microsoft has been variously adding and removing Java from Windows throughout the course of an antitrust suit Sun brought against the software colossus.
