As the software company that perfected such marketing tactics as nagware and forced product registration, Intuit is a company we need to watch closely. And sure enough, Intuit Inc. once again appears to be pioneering new ways to squeeze a few more dollars out of its customer base.
The 1-GHz CPU has grabbed the spotlight in the chip speed races, as both Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. hit that mark this month. But when Intel jumped from 800 MHz to 1 GHz, it skipped a few spots, which it fills Monday. Making their debut are 850- and 866-MHz Pentium III CPUs, which will power systems that may prove more practical than the speed demon.
Most network administrators discuss their firewalls in terms of what kinds of inbound traffic they block from the wild and wooly Internet. Not many consider how threatening outbound traffic can be to a site's security.

State telecom regulators have decided they don't like a lobbying effort under way to allow Bell companies to carry data and Internet traffic across local boundaries before they get general long-distance approval. The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, which represents telecom and energy regulators in the 50 states, passed a resolution opposing congressional bills to free up Bells to create long-haul data backbones even before they submit state-by-state, long-distance applications to the government. Some of the Bells have funded a lobbying group headed by former White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry to push for the idea, arguing they could provide a needed boost in Internet backbone capacity. Critics say the Bells could do a lot more for the Internet by concentrating on speeding up the local loop.
The muscle systems on this month's charts, from notebooks aided by Intel Corp.'s SpeedStep technology to desktop chart-makers hitting 800 MHz, pack a sizable herd of ponies under their hoods and stampede over more than their fair share of benchmarks. This month also sees the first Top 30 machine to use the Windows 2000 operating system: The Dell OptiPlex GX300 captures the number five spot on our power chart. Though the Dell proved to be quite fast, we'll need to see more Windows 2000 systems before we can judge how the OS affects performance.

Perhaps the biggest challenge in supporting a branch office is finding a manageable way to offer it the same networking services that your headquarters enjoy. To set up a LAN with full Internet access and a firewall requires a complicated mix of hardware and software. The cost of installing and managing these systems is unreasonable for a remote office of 10 or fewer people. Link-sys, a brand synonymous with affordable networking, steps up to this challenge with its EtherFast Cable/DSL Router, a tool that provides remote connectivity at a knockout price.

Users hoping to see Nortel Networks' next-generation Layer 3 backbone switch this month will have to wait a little longer because the company has delayed delivery again. . . . This time until the second quarter.
I just found out that ubiquitous computing and pervasive computing aren't the same thing. "What?!?" you're saying. "I'm shocked." Yes, brace yourselves. This time it appears to be the scientists, not the marketers, who adopted everyday terms to describe their once-futuristic technology, making things very confusing now that other folks are using those ordinary words - sometimes interchangeably - without their particular nuances in mind.
Opera Software AS today announced the release of a beta version of its Opera 4.0 Elektra for Windows Internet browser software.
Someday telecom mergers may achieve the long-elusive goal of one-stop shopping, but all they seem to be doing now is forcing users to deal with more carriers, not less.
