A Second Look At Vista
I wasn't very excited about Windows Vista from the claims and reviews. The self-serving snipes in "Competitor's Take On Vista" actually increased my interest (Nov. 27, 2006). George Heron (McAfee) compares building security into the operating system to letting "the fox watch the henhouse." Maybe I should scrap my McAfee Security Suite if its chief scientist doesn't know who the fox is. The comment from Oliver Friedrichs (Symantec) on forward-looking solutions makes sense, though it remains unclear that his company has delivered.

The Final Frontier
I worry that we're becoming Borg as in Star Trek ("In The Year 2025, If I'm Still Alive, I May Find. . .," Nov. 27, 2006). Borg used nanoprobes, had man-machine direct communication, and were a collective forming one big computer that acted as one.
