Stuff I've been looking at through my Blackberry:
- There's a new Security Update out. Go to System Preferences and check Software Update when you have a spare moment.
- Virtual PC 7 seems to be finally out in the Office Professional bundle (which is probably going to be my Xmas present to myself).
- Adobe's DNG format explained.
- Reactions to crippled Bluetooth functionality.
- Complete mySQL has been updated, which is always nice (Michael, have a look).
- Via pfig, an nmap bot - in Python, of course, and very much in the spirit of my own efforts. Fascinating.
- T-Mobile rolls out 802.1X. At least someone is taking the lead...
- Via Melo, the IETF has finally published the XMPP RFCs - which causes the usual amount of unrest among the unwashed masses (with this comment deserving special consideration). And no, I don't think this will help IM interoperability.
- Still on the IM front, it looks like there's a Yahoo Messenger update out.
- Gmail adds Atom feeds. Haven't noticed this one yet, but the direct link works for me in Safari as long as I'm logged in. I wonder how you'll get your RSS aggregator to authenticate, though.
- You know Symbian phones are getting bloated when people start selling firewalls for them.
- A couple of interesting features on phone branding and mobile internet access (and that's real internet access, not WAP).
- Treos are to get ActiveSync (i.e. sync with Exchange via HTTP/HTTPS). Following Palm's tendency to fragment its feature set across devices, I sadly don't expect this getting carried over to Tungstens.
- A music video worth watching.
- And finally, via 2lmc, our moment of Zen: the dog least likely to be run over accidentally:
Music critics tell us the resemblance to Elton is purely coincidental, and that it is not his dog.
