What's the best newsreader?

To get to a newsgroup, naturally, you need some software. Sure, you can just use a plain browser to read news -- Deja News is the most notable spot to access newsgroups in a Web window -- but then you have to suffer through the bores along with the bright. Only with a news client, typically called a newsreader, can you connect to your ISP's news servers, sift out spam (or messages from morons), manage the multitude of messages, and even download and store the occasional attached image file. We tried out the seven most popular newsreaders in our Downloads section, including four freebies and three for-profit clients.

Mann, a University of Toronto professor, offers glimpses of the future at his Web sites

Ed. - Mann's inventions seem awfully crazy, but perhaps in 20 years many people will be walking around in what he calls "WearComps."

Russian Macs on Rebound

The first months following Russia's August 1998 economic crisis were as difficult for Mac-related businesses as they were for the rest of the country. During that period, economic uncertainty drove Mac sales almost to Ground Zero. However, by mid-autumn the first signs of recovery had started to appear, and the Russian market is still a measurable part of Apple's European business.

Short Term Prophets

With the Dow near 9,000, about break-even for the day, DT - the trading guru and leader of the Day Traders On-line chat room - sounds the red alert.

The Cost of Free ISPs

Free computers, free applications, free ISPs. Sometimes it seems as if the future is going to be one long, free ride. Free Web access is a particularly tempting idea. As countries outside the U.S. race to join the free ISP bandwagon, industry analysts aren't all that convinced that the model can be successfully duplicated in the U.S.

Seeds of Self-Interest

Like a rancher who grows corn to feed his own cattle, the biggest high-tech companies are funneling more and more seed money into small start-ups with the hope of cultivating the products they make and the standards they endorse.

Web Advertisers Search for the Promised Land

Ah, the Internet. For advertisers, it's supposed to be Shangri-la. In theory, the Net enables advertisers to target audiences with pinpoint accuracy. In this magical realm, companies can track not only the people who see their ad, but also what action they took after they saw it.

Ed. - And if I recall correctly, Shangri-la was an imaginary place.

Finding an Internet Job, Even If You Aren't a Techie

So, you want to work on the Internet, but you don't want to learn any boring programming languages? Well, it is possible for nontechies to get Net-related jobs, but one must know what the jobs entail and be willing to learn at least some basic HTML. (If you can program your VCR, you can code HTML.)

Ed. - Heck, if you can tie your shoelaces by yourself, you can code HTML.

Use the Internet as Your Print Partner

When you need to print a document at a remote location and fax quality won't do, nothing works quite like Nadio's InternetPrint. This amazing utility lets you use any application's Print command to print a document to a remote printer using the Internet.

Ed. -At $79 to license two systems, we'll take our chances sending attachments.

The Best of Extreemely Specialized Sites

What's fun about the Web is that anyone can be a publisher--and sometimes it feels as if everyone is. For three years now, the Yahoo! Internet Life Web site ( has taken a weekly peek at some of the Web's most...well, tightly focused sites. Not necessarily weird, not necessarily wacky, they're extreeemely specialized. Here are some of the best.

Ed. - The site on "How to Make an Alien" left us shaking our heads.

This article takes a look at tools for developing Java programs on the Mac as well as examples of products that are currently using Java in real ways.

Sorry to be party poopers, but Web ads don't work. And until site owners wake up to certain realities, Internet commerce will continue to have the stench of ill repute.

Five Points of Light: Enterprise Value Awards

CIO deliberated long and hard over the winners of this year's Enterprise Value Awards. Five judges argued and agonized over the merits of the 13 finalist IT organizations, raising questions about the future role and the business value of IT. One thing's for sure: Though it may be a while before most business leaders fully appreciate technology as a strategic tool, IT has become far more than a mere support function.

Ad Software Shoot-out

You young fellers probably don't remember the good old days of the Web, but ol' Chuck was around back then, and selling ads too, believe it or not! Way back oh...four years ago, we'd just slap an ad on a page like any other graphic, and the advertiser would pay us a flat monthly fee. Well, those days are long gone. Advertisers require far more service these days, and some of them can be downright demanding.

Printing in the Future: What are the Alternatives?

When it comes to printing, Unix usually falls far short of its mainframe counterpart. Even with appropriate tools, the Unix printing experience isn't what mainframe users have come to expect. However, though a paperless office might be an impossibility, it is possible to deliver powerful Unix "printing" solutions.

* IVB: The Internet Valley Benchmark (IVB) compares a company's zone of Web influence to that of its peers and across industries through the use of a standard value. The set level for the IVB is the current zone of Web influence for Internet Valley. Why Internet Valley Benchmark ?

Internet Valley was founded and coined the term Web Influence in 1995.
IV became the first company to provide the online community with full-scale Web Influence related services.
In May 1996, Internet Valley published the first Web Influence list,  rating the Top 100 Online Computer Magazines. Since that time, Internet Valley has continued to develop the hyperlink mechanics-based methods and technology to monitor and evaluate the current level of Web Influence. The basic subjects of this research have been the fastest growing sectors of iBusiness. All this time, Internet Valley has provided to the leading members of the Internet community   reliable data, trends and statistics.

Leading members of the IT community voiced their opinions regarding Internet Valley's  3-year effort to research Web Influence trends:
    - Matthew Rothenberg, director of online content at MacWeek.Com, joint venture of ZDNet and IDG, "We are thrilled by the results of the study..." January 5, 1999
    - IBM e-commerce director Scott Gannon: "I think your research is really proven right on.  I think you're focused on the right thing..." January 28, 1999
