Link: Fragments of My Existence: Life with my TabletPC is a posting by Jason Mark on his experiences moving from an iBook to an Acer C112 Tablet PC – mirroring my own move. His conclusion: “I love it so far”.
The Trojan is said to suppress warning messages displayed by Microsoft AntiSpyware, and delete all of the files in the program’s folder.
Like many other Trojans, Bankash will also steal passwords and online banking details from Windows users. The program targets users of UK online banks such as Barclays, Cahoot, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds TSB, Nationwide, NatWest, and Smile.
If you’re a UK online bank user, watch out for this one.
Macworld: SpamSieve gains faster Entourage processing, more. If you’re not using SpamSieve, I’d recommend it – it’s the best product of its kind on the Mac, and a big improvement over the built-in spam filters in Mail or Entourage.

They obviously need to get with the program and update their toy so that it rips off the latest iMac, not any of the last generation garbage, but check out this educational â€œwireless childâ€™s PCâ€ that sells for a mere forty bucks.

And of course I got busted by a new coworker upon scrambling out of there who was kind enough to understand the confusion but I’m sure was thinking down deep somewhere, “Great, the new guy’s a perv…”
Jordan Allen-Dutton and Erik Weiner, authors of “The Bomb-itty of Errors,” an award-winning, hip-hop Shakespearean play, have written “Nerds,” which they call “a musical software satire.” It is to be performed this week at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
The musical explores the lives of Mr. Gates and Mr. Jobs, a founder of Apple, from their teenage years to the present, and includes supporting characters like Apple’s other founder, Steve Wozniak, and fictional female love interests.
First Noah Wylie plays Jobs, now we get this. What’s next – “Steve Jobs: The Opera”?
Apple have released some more developer docs for Tiger, this time sneak preview documentation for Xcode 2.0. Of note is the new object-graph management feature in Core Data:
Object-graph management allows you to work with the data in your application, including full undo and redo support. It also provides a well-defined data integrity infrastructure. Object-graph persistence means that the data in your application is automatically stored to, and then retrieved from, a file on disk.
I wonder if this persistence is truly automatic and does away with user-initiated save points in documents (no more file-save – it just happens, all the time, continuously). How far does this full undo/redo support go?
Would doing away with the File/Save routine be a step forward? I think the answer is a definite “yes”. One of the nicest things about Microsoft’s OneNote is that it doesn’t have a Save option – everything is saved as you work. It’s another step away from a computer-centric vision of documents and towards a more natural mode of working.
