61 Advisor Magazines 0.44 Microsoft Access Bug Corrupts Data! A serious flaw has been discovered in Microsoft Access that causes changes made to one record to be saved to another -- corrupting both records. The bug is serious and dangerous because the damage can be unnoticed by the user, and the original correct data is lost. Microsoft confirms the bug in Access 8.0/97.

Ed. - You can bet it has some bugs or you wouldn't have to buy the upgrade, right?

Squeeze Watts From Your Embedded Design

An efficient, low-power design not only slashes the energy your embedded system consumes, but also reduces the energy drain on the environment. As a bonus, you get a superior product at a lower cost.

A Uniform Interface To CGI And ISAPI 0

In the early days of the Internet, Common Gateway Interface (CGI) applications were the protocol utilized by the server to exchange data with the sites. Today, with the move to Windows NT as the platform of choice for Internet services, the use of ISAPI (an API specifically designed for the Microsoft Internet Information Server) has become very prevalent.

ADSL: On the server side

In just a few years, we've gone from a majority of users having 9600 to 14400 baud modems, then 28800 and 33600 modems, to no small number having a 56K modem of some sort. The typical ADSL user will expect to be able to download data at 256K. That's roughly 20 times what one would have expected just three years ago. And higher speeds are readily available. As the kinks get worked out and more people are able to get ADSL, or some variation on that theme, Internet providers are going to faced with no small number of challenges. Actually just one challenge, providing these users with the bandwidth they will expect.

Sharpen Your Users

A lackadaisical attitude towards training is typical of many AutoCAD-using companies. Project deadlines and the pressure to bill as many hours as possible cause most companies to give short shrift to training. Over time, users become stuck in their old ways of doing things and ignorant of new features and techniques that might improve their work. They become, as the blind man in Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Crossing says, “like the carpenter whose work went so slowly for the dullness of his tools that he had not time to sharpen them.”

The Almighty and All-Important Consumer

Until now, the conventional wisdom regarding e-commerce has pointed solidly at business-to-business sites as the market with the largest potential for growth. But late November and early December of last year saw movement in the stock market that flew in the face of the conventional approach. And now Wall Street has made two basic proclamations: The consumer is king; and it's not about products, but all about service.

Confidentiality Using Authentication

Within the next ten years, the use of the Internet in both communication and commerce will greatly increase. As a result, the U.S. Government has begun to regulate these activities online. The government wants to regulate communication by decreasing the number of confidential (secret) messages sent so that the government can eavesdrop on illegal activities to prevent crime. Therefore, it has passed regulations on the use (mainly the export) of encryption, the most common method of creating confidentiality. But the government has not regulated ''authentication'', and here's why.

Pentium III Serial Number Is Just a Tool

But Is It a Can Opener or a Gun? Intel opened a can of worms recently by announcing that, starting with the forthcoming Pentium III, each processor it produces will include a unique serial number. Intel hopes this number will provide a useful tool for asset tracking and securing Internet transactions. But its value appears limited, and it could potentially be misused.

The 360-Degree View

Ask the CEO of any large firm about the central focus of the enterprise, and he or she will most likely answer that the bottom line is to serve customers. Assertions about providing good customer service are so ubiquitous that they have almost become cliche. But in spite of the acknowledged importance of a well-served customer, most companies admit that maintaining complete, up-to-date customer information across many departments is a nearly insurmountable task. However, companies can use information technology to find new ways of serving their customers.

Windows 2000: Does it deliver?

It's clearly going to be the most important computer product released this year -- or next year, depending on whether Microsoft can meet its deadlines. Windows 2000, formerly known as NT 5.0, is the product that will unify the Windows 9x and NT product lines. Microsoft has to get this one right.

Boom and Doom: A Guide to Money The good news: At the time of this writing, the sky hasn't fallen. The bad news: At the time of this writing, it still might. The markets, money mavens say, are in a "fragile state," investors feeling "shaky," stocks "vulnerable to psychological swings." With the data crunched, the indices analyzed and the factors cross-referenced, expert opinion is split: The global economy has either caught the equivalent of a cold, or the Ebola virus.

SFA Systems: Managing the Behavior and Cultural Changes

Companies have continued to miss the mark in their quest for successful sales force automation (SFA) implementations. Industry statistics put successful SFA implementations at less than 30 percent. The reason: companies and system integrators overlook the most critical success factor -- the user.

Survey Gives IEEE-USA a Picture of Unemployed Engineers

"It's so sad," said Gaynor Nevergold, recalling her husband's suicide in March of 1997. Richard Nevergold, a 56-year-old engineer and IEEE member, had been so distraught over his unemployment that he took his own life in the family's Florida, USA, home.

Marrying Traditional Advertising to Online Sales

While combining traditional print ads with an online brochure can be extremely effective, it's even better when they can not only read the brochure, but place their order online. Businesses with products that lend themselves to this kind of direct sales really stand to profit on the Web.Large companies are moving to online sales. By Christmas of 1999, nearly every savvy retail chain in the U.S. will be on the Web if it can. Is there room for the small businesses? Is the age of the level playing field over?

E-Books Are on the Way!

For years we’ve been hearing neo-Luddite pundits decry the digital age as sounding the death knell for the printed book. They’ve been vilifying technology for fear electronic books would displace thick, lovingly bound volumes with comforting vellum and gilt-edged pages. (Forget about eau de library paste. Never did it for me.) Bibliophiles comfortable with technology have been sparring with these individuals, comfortable in their convictions that books will always be books and trees will continue to be sacrificed for more books, good and bad, even with electronic books available.

Ed. - Worth a read if you can get past the slew of "big words," which Paulson indiscriminately brandishes like they're talismans against the new technology.

* 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
