Security is Everyone’s Business

In case you haven’t heard, an out-of-band security update was released today for Internet Explorer 7. What Does This Mean? "Out-of-band" means that this release was important enough to be released outside of the normal monthly update cycle. Why is This Update Important? The update is marked "urgent" because it fixes a publicly disclosed IE…

My New Coffee Table

Wondering where I have been and what I have been up to?  Well, a LOT of my free time has been poured into this project.  (And I do mean a LOT.)  I know I usually keep this blog on point with tech talk, but I figure a glimpse here and there into my non-work life…

Zune vs. iPod

What does the iPod have going for it?  It is ubiquitous.  It was out before the Zune and, frankly, more people own an iPod than own a Zune.  What does the Zune have going for it?  EVERYTHING else.  🙂   This is a post that I take a little evil delight in writing.  I have…

Stick to the Business, Kid….

As you may have noticed, I typically try to keep these postings somewhat related to the business side of IT.  Today, however, Microsoft announced the new Xbox 360 experience and it is almost too cool for even me to put into words.  A ton of features have been added to the 360 interface, including animated…

Wireless Internet Access Going Green?

I’m guessing this will make some other wireless providers green with envy, too.  What I am referring to is the very latest in wireless technology, solar powered hot spots!  I just read this article about Meraki bringing solar-powered wifi units to market in December.  While this may not be the best news for their competitors,…

For My Cincinnati Attendees…

For those of you who had attended the Cincinnati event and are patiently waiting for your copy of Windows Vista, I have good news.  I collected business cards, addresses, etc. from everyone who was in the room at the end (and as many of you who left before the lunch event as I could).  I’ve…

What a Day! An Essay by Dan Woodman

This is going to be different from my usual blog post.  I’m going back to my roots as an English major to craft something I don’t get to write very often (anymore): an essay.  This isn’t a post about how a product or technology can help you in your business, but rather a personal observation…

But Wait! There’s More!

Last week, I posted a couple articles about Microsoft Office OneNote 2007.  I wanted to do a follow-up and tell you about some powertoys available for OneNote. These are posted on Daniel Escapa’s (a Program Manager on the OneNote team) blog: Send to OneNote — this tool adds a "send to OneNote" option to the…
