MICROSOFT: What are you [your programmers] thinking?

Every week there’s a new exploit, a new security problem, another program they wrote with a security flaw. It’s simply incredible to think that this is a company that is founded and dedicated to producing and supporting a Operating System that 90% of the world is using and yet it has to be patched on …

Google’s Chrome just doesn’t shine [yet]

Watching technology and working on the stock market is kind of the same. You look at the information, use your knowledge, make a decision and see if that decision turns out to be the right one; unless your an inside trader [that’s illegal]. As the traffic picks up on our site, and we have more …

Corporate Tech Support Sucks

As a person that has more than half a brain [that’s working], this makes me dangerous and intimidating to most corporate ‘tech support’ nut heads out there. The corporate tech support nowadays is the equivalent to the introduction of a voice mail box or an automated response to ‘if your skin is blue press #2 …

It’s Lacking: Thunderbird 3bPre

I’m a really big fan of e-mail clients. While others will argue that using the web-based e-mail client is the way to go, I like having my information on my machine locally. I guess I’m just old-fashioned. And speaking of old-fashioned, I’ve got myself a new PC that’s 64-bit, I’m trying to make sure that …

Internet Explorer is just too close for me…

The infinite question is which browser is better, which is more secure, who’s more compatible and which is more flexible? This is a argument that’s going to be asked everyday, if not multiple times a day. While others have their opinions, I’ve mine; the thing that has me just regurgitating with joy is the tight integration …

Webpage Resolutions and the Wasted Space

When PC’s first came out they were large and they had these monochrome black and green screens [or b/w], but the screens were small and cramped. As time when on, it was updated to 16 bit color, and then millions of colors and then there was the race to kill the CRT and make the …

Where is Firefox’s Future without Google?

Firefox has been a longstanding symbol of an open source triumph, but open source means support by volunteers [time, code or testing] or financial backing. For many years Google has made Firefox it’s surgical point from which to stab at Microsoft; and it’s been an embarrassing and infectious wound. Competition is the catalyst that sparks …

Firefox Seems to be Common with Smart Browsers

A couple of weeks ago an article was posted about Firefox reaching 20% of the market, but I think there’s more to it than that. I propose to say that this actually represents the population of intelligent people on the Internet. I think this is a trend showing that the people on the Internet are …

When I upgraded my system at home and purchased a 64-bit operating system, I wasn’t really sure of the problems that I was going to incur, but I was really surprised that a lot of the high-end games that I had worked perfectly on Vista 64 and one of my most productive packages Dragon NaturallySpeaking …

Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 on Vista 64; Oh no you did’n!

So I’ve the latest version of DNS [10] and I’ve got Vista 64, but the two were not meant to be. I mucked around, and mucked around, and I was able to get DNS 9 installed on Vista 64 [link] by making some changes to the MSI, but Nuance got smart and added a Visual …
