The beefy processors in modern-day Macs not only help applications run briskly, but also enable Macs to take on chores that were once the domain of peripheral devices. With the right pairing of software and a G3 or G4 processor, your Mac can imitate a DVD player, a console game machine, or a PC. And with Black & Whites from BitHeadz Inc., you can even turn your Mac into a music synthesizer. Given enough RAM and a fast processor, this collection of sampled acoustic and electric pianos plays and sounds very much like the real thing.
With the elevation of the Singapore office of Ariba Inc., a business-to-business electronic-commerce provider, to Asia-Pacific headquarters status, the company has heightened its commitment to the region.
Prepress programs have had a hard time making themselves relevant to Web designers. The current versions of traditional print applications Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, and QuarkXPress lack so much as a single Web-specific feature that another program doesn't handle more efficiently. In fact, only one application-Adobe Photoshop-has managed to gain wide acceptance among print and online professionals alike.
Long before Microsoft Corp. Word dominated the word processing field, a program called MacWrite was bundled with every Mac sold. The original version of MacWrite was based on word processing technology licensed from Quark Inc.-surprising, given that importing text into QuarkXPress is far from trouble free. If Quark was processing words back in the 1980s, why doesn't XPress do a better job of importing word processing files today?
We all know that the number 13 is considered bad luck, but in the world of software publishing, the unlucky digit seems to be 6. In light of the poor performance of some recent version 6 releases-Microsoft Corp.'s Word 6.0, Now Software's Now Utilities 6.X, and the latest arrival, Apple Computer Inc.'s AppleWorks 6-software publishers may just decide to skip directly from version 5.0 to version 7.0.
A handheld is only as useful as the software it runs -- otherwise, it's just an expensive paperweight. Since its introduction four years ago, Palm OS has amassed a rich following of developers, from amateur programmers to professional software publishers, who have created tens of thousands of programs for use on Palm Inc. and Handspring Inc. handheld organizers.
E-mail is about as private as undressing with your curtains open. You may think you're having a private moment, but the reality is quite different. The steamy love letter you sent to your sweetheart, the joke about your manager's new haircut, and the resume you sent to your company's competitor may all have passed under the eyes of your boss, as well as those of the systems supervisor and a few other unintended recipients. The fact is, thanks to modern technology and the approval of the courts, your employer can easily-and legally-keep tabs on everything that passes through your e-mail out-box at work. It's also not especially difficult for a hacker, your ISP's mail administrator, or a coworker to intercept and read your e-mail. Thankfully, you can shield private messages from public scrutiny. With some security know-how and our e-mail tips, you can fight off the Big Brothers of the world.
With its most valuable asset already sold, the failed London-based online retailer Boo.com Group Ltd. likely won't come close to recouping its costs in an ongoing liquidation.

No password is unbreakable, but alphanumeric passwords are more secure than the passwords many people use, which tend to be composed of letters only. Jim Butler of San Diego compiled three different methods for creating easy-to-remember alphanumeric passwords. With what he calls the look-alike method, you use numbers in place of the letters they resemble, replacing the letter o with the number 0, i with 1, z with 2, s with 5, G with 6, and g with 9. For example, worlds becomes w0r1d5.
