perhaps even a new favorite or two. All in all, worth some browsing time.

|The Associated Press (AP) has a service that uses Adobe PDF to beam ads via satellite to any or all 1,600 of its member organizations. AdSEND offers tremendous benefits to newspapers and their advertisers -- excellent service, cost-effective, reliable digital workflow that doesn't require documents to be converted from electronic to digital form repeatedly.

|You just got Visual Basic 6.0, you started to program...then
you heard the rumors. "Visual Basic 6.0 trashed my machine." "Visual Basic
6.0 has so many problems that Microsoft recommends not shipping any product with it."
Truth, or myth? How is 6.0 different from previous versions of Visual Basic? Here's
Advisor Magazine's perspective.
Ed. - You can bet it has some bugs or you wouldn't have to buy the upgrade, right?

|Together with 'convergence', 'new media' has been the most celebrated and fatuous buzz phrase to emerge in the halcyon days of the information superhighway. But at the end of a decade where telecommunications and entertainment have collided, the best laid plans of industry titans have proven laughably awry. Instead of the expected broadband cable and set-top infrastructure, we discovered the Internet -- a chaotic narrowband pipeline overlooked by the industry for years.

No system administrator should ever ask you to set your password to a particular value (although they might ask you to change your password if there is evidence that it has been compromised). So just what is the best way to ensure security? The basic SMTP protocol does not support authentication, so forging a message is trivial. I dont hear the senders voice or see his face as he types, and ASCII has distinct limitations when it comes to transmitting personality. The answer is MIME-encoded digital signatures.
Ed. - This brings to the forefront the heated politics of the use of encryption. Both sides have valid arguments. Tell us what you think.

|Is Web TV for You?
For instant Internet access in the comfort of your living room, there's no easier or cheaper option than WebTV. WebTV manufacturers have developed a simple language that makes setup and use a breeze. Of course, simple isn't always best, and WebTV's changes to traditional Web browsing commands and setup procedures may cause some confusion for the experienced Internet junkie. Familiarity may breed contempt, but for the newbie, WebTV is the way to go.
Ed. - We're willing to bet that Web TV's demographics are very similar to that of the Jerry Springer show.
The next time youre sitting around with a group of CAD managers, ask whether they have CAD manuals in their offices. Most will answer "yes"--a hefty CAD manual is one of the badges of CAD managerial prowess. If you want some real insight, ask the CAD managers why they have CAD manuals.
CIO presented a hypothetical wand and a promise for one wish to six information technology executives, who wished for all manner of magical thinking caps, crystal balls, love potions and truth serums. (Did somebody actually suggest an "end-user silencer module"?) But even when given free rein to fulfill their wildest dreams, managers in the end chose to wish for the simple but not quite achievable fixes that would most improve their workday lives. And thus we present their wishes: Truly Ubiquitous Computing, True Blue Business Partners, the Ultimate Time Machine and the Perfect Employee.
As recently as 1994, academic journals such as Communication Education were continuing to define "computer-mediated communication" as a decidedly dialogic or conversational phenomenon. Focusing on such technologies as electronic bulletin boards, the Usenet and email, the journal's articles attempted to come to grips with the "virtual" dimension of text-based, computerized communication. Four short years later, the Internet has become a much more complex, commercialized, politicized and increasingly networked environment, to the extent that web-based resources -- particularly home page addresses-- have become fully integrated and hypertextually linked into "traditional" CMC dialogic technologies
Keeping Up With New Technology
In a readers survey conducted last year, and reported by Patrick Coyne in his Editors Column, 44% of the survey participants said their greatest business challenge was in keeping up with technological changes. It is still an important question today. How do you keep track of new equipment and software upgrades? How do you decide what is right for you?
A revolution is taking place in Mexico -- the same revolution that has been quietly creeping into the labs of research facilities and of universities across the world. In Oregon, this revolution is being spread into the elementary schools by a coalition of multi-national corporations, local free press, and a group of dedicated volunteers who claim they don't "officially" exist. It all started with a radical at the MIT Artificial Intelligence labs and a foreigner who often speaks of world domination. This is the revolution of open source software.

ISPs Cut Through Net Traffic
An emerging service called server co-location could be the answer for VARs whose customers want heavy-duty bandwidth performance for their Web application and vault-like security. It's a service that places a customer's Web servers at a network access point, or peering point, where data can quickly hop on the Internet backbone without navigating through regional Internet service provider (ISP) networks.
Ed. - Many companies will unintentionally make themselves vulnerable by buying into server offloading with start-up and growing ISPs.
Whither Goest Apple?
Perhaps youve see the ad. Its prominentback cover: Time. Jackie Robinson in full glide, crossing the plate ahead of the sweep tag. A brilliant moment during a year of monumental change. Quantum shift: Baseball Integrates. Robinson, a good Negro League player, wins NL Rookie of the Year. The world continues to turn; the axis is shifted. The simple imperative: "Think Different." An Apple appears near the words; a silent partner? Think different. Think Apple?
Ed. - A well thought out article that brings in to doubt whether Apple can ever come all the way back.
|Computer Gaming World
A quiet revolution has begun taking over the noisiest part of your PC: the audio subsystem. SoundBlaster compatibility, once the Rosetta stone of PC audio, has become less and less important as games have migrated to Windows 95/98. More and more, games are using higher-resolution audio, and some games have even incorporated Dolby Surround for ambient effects.

Lets face it Java has had a lot of hype. Though thousands of developers have sung its praises, convincing managers and project leaders to use Java for their applications can be a rough battle. Arguing certain language features does not go very far, and to turn a managers head, youve got to build a solid business case. In this issue Ward has compiled a list of reasons that should help you get started.

Telecommuting: Nice Work if You Can Hack It
Telecommuting seems like a great gig, often touted as the biggest advance for employees since the 40-hour week. Working at home, one avoids the grind of rush-hour traffic, not to mention the distractions of the office. Want to skip your shower? Wear sweatpants instead of a suit? Go ahead. But also growing is evidence that working from home is not as liberating as one might think, and that the flexibility it offers does not, in the end, do much to empower the worker. And it has other, less tangible drawbacks.
The concept of thin servers, or microservers, has been around for a while. The Cobalt Qube's innovation is to strip away everything that is superfluous and focus on just the things needed to get a server up and running quickly. The Cobalt offering is particularly attractive for small businesses or startup ISPs wanting to put up a self-contained Internet presence complete with Web site, email and ftp.
An Introduction to Java is a series of articles that explores Java. Well discover what Java is and why it was developed. Well learn about the Java Development Kit and take a tour of the Java language. Well find out how to create applets and applications. If you ever wanted to take a course on Java but your boss wouldnt shell out the cash, here is your chance.
Ed. - For those interested, this is one of the most comprehensive yet clear articles about Java that we've seen.
|Computer Reseller News
Resellers are starting to feel the impact of year 2000 worries on their bottom line as customers struggle with the "crowding out" effect Y2K solutions have on operational budgets. Some large corporate and government clients have insisted on inserting Y2K guarantees within their contracts and purchase orders, which basically shift the blame for any year 2000 problems back to the VARs.
|Computer Retail Week
Various reports indicate e-commerce revenues at least doubled and overall use of the Internet for shopping nearly tripled during the 1998 holiday season, compared with the same period of 1997. Increasingly, retailers who succeed in cyberspace will be those who best exploit and manipulate Web technology and those who provide top-notch services. Just look at the recent trends.
Ed. - More important than the technology implemented will be the level of influence they can build for their Web site.
Although notebook buyers have always had to make more complexand more personaltrade-offs than desktop shoppers, they haven't had to deal with the confusing array of CPU choices found on the desktop. Until now. The recent release of some processor choices promises that managing CPU options for portable systems will never be the samefor sellers or buyers.
If you're tired of going to the film processing store and waiting anywhere from an hour to a few days for your pictures, use a digital camera. These devices have become advanced enough to save you time and money without compromising picture quality.
When the Global Business Dialogue on E-Commerce (GBDE) convenes for the second time next month, the meeting will most likely be held -- fittingly enough -- over the Internet. The group aims to tackle a host of policy issues related to electronic commerce, to hammer out consensus and alleviate the need for governments to step in with regulations.
Ed. - With roughly only 100 member companies, how much power can they wield?
They are everywhere: the conbini (convenience store). With the conbini market saturated, these neighborhood denizens have embraced e-commerce in an attempt to lure more customers. Now chains like Lawson can offer thousands of products without adding floor space. So now as the next "networked generation" of Japanese kids hangs out at the liquor store, their tastes could be setting shopping styles for the next century.

Design and Implementation of a Digital Library
Have you ever wondered what a digital library is or how you would go about creating your own digital library? By describing the design and implementation process we followed in creating our own digital library, we intend to give the reader a simple definition of what a digital library is, and present some key design issues involved in creating a digital library. We focus on a UNIX based implementation, but we also include highlights of PC-based libraries.
