Function Creep: The weeds of the Great Tech Revolution!!!

Just the other day as I was driving to work I got a phone call from cell phone provider. The girl on the other end was cheery and polite and full of well whatever cheery and polite telephone sales girls are full of and she proceede to question me about my service and my product satisfaction.

Vista: A view or prospect seen through a long NARROW avenue or Passage…

Windows Vista FlagThis is part of a definition for the noun “Vista.” And as the release date for Microsoft’s new operating system approaches I am, like many of you, begining to do my research as to whether I should buy Vista or not. In my research I am feeling an undertone of a sentiment creep into my mind as to “why should I be bothered with this?” Let me explain. Let’s say computers as we know them didn’t start to take off until 1995 with the introduction of windows 95 culminating with XP. Every new rendition promised so much, and in fits and sputters they mostly delivered. Except that each release or new product was a flawed product.

Now Vista is supposed to be “fixed” and protected. If history shows anything is that it won’t be. The only thing it will have going for it is that it is new. And really are we doing anything better with our computers that we weren’t already doing? Editing video, writing, number crunching, database building and on and on into the great cyber vistas. Which I remind you is a “view or prospect, esp. one seen through a long, narrow avenue or passage, as between rows of trees or houses.”

Flash or Substance?

Macromedia Flash surely has some valid uses on a web site. I just haven’t found any of them yet. Well, that’s not exactly true. If, after I click on a search result, I’m presented with a Flash intro — especially one that takes two minutes to load over broadband — I know immediately that this is not a site I’m interested in.

Hurricane force winds crossed Europe from west to east this week, causing HavokBlack Hats Up On Current Events Launch Virus Wave
Virus writers attacked thousands of computers on Friday with a Malware program that a security company has dubbed the “storm worm”.  The difference between this attack and others like it was the tag line of infected emails sent to victim computers: “230 dead as storm batters Europe”.  While the worm essentially functions as a Trojan horse, allowing unapproved access to the computer for theft or spam production, this marks one of the first times virus writers have used such relevant current events to legitimize their spam email.  The storm in question blew winds up to 120 mph through Europe, causing deaths across the continent due to falling debris and traffic accidents.  The actual death toll is well, well under 230, however.
