81 Technology Review


Michael Dertouzos

The Rich People's Computer?

It stands to reason that people struggling to get their daily bites of food have nothing left for the more ethereal bytes of information. Take this disparity to its logical next step: The rich, who can afford to buy the new technologies, use them to become increasingly productive and therefore even richer while the poor stand still. The conclusion is as logical as it is inescapable: Left to its own devices the information revolution will increase the gap between rich and poor nations and between rich and poor people within nations.

Business Apps: Your place or mine?

Call it the revenge of timesharing. Call it rent-an-app. Call it hosting, cosourcing, resourcing, even outsourcing. But whatever you call it, application outsourcing is a concept whose time has come-again. Indeed, the idea is an old one, but there's a new twist, and it has to do with what's getting outsourced, and who's getting their fingers in the pie.

The Rules of Typography: Part VIII
Increase line spacing to improve readability in body text: Line spacing, also called “leading,” because printers used to insert thin strips of lead between lines of type to add space, is very important not only for readability but also for appearance.

Bilingual Communications & the Personal Computer

Writing up basic documentation, invoices, taxes and e-mail can be nightmarish when dealing with more than one language. Computing Japan talks to foreign companies to see how they cope with the problems of bilingual computing.

AOL Europe Demands Flat-Rate Fee for Net Connections

High telephone call charges are smothering the development of an Internet-based economy in Europe, according to leading Internet access provider AOL. In an unprecedented and outspoken statement, the world's largest Internet access provider lent its full support for a radical overhaul of the telecom pricing structures in Europe.

Caching Out

Are Web sites 'caching' in on the increased access times and reduced bandwidth costs lauded by proxy cache vendors or are they finding themselves under the advertising gun? Administrators are learning that proxy caches wreak havoc with page-count statistics, and page-count statistics are at the heart of how many ad-based sites generate revenue.

Ed. -With an estimated $1.3 billion spent on online ads during the first nine months of 1998, they'd better come up with a reliable system that works if they want that money stream to continue.

Books Embrace The Internet

The Internet didn’t kill television, video didn’t kill the radio star, and none of them is going to eradicate books. Each new communications technology causes gnashing of teeth from those who fear their favorite medium will become obsolete. But is the danger real for booklovers in the Internet age? Should die-hard bibliophiles fear the demise of the printed word? Not really. As in the aftermath of Johann Gutenberg’s printing press, the literary world is adapting to a new era.

Java in the Database

As Java gains momentum in the enterprise, Java developers are becoming more sophisticated in their use of the corporate database. Here’s a rundown on the state of the art, from JDBC and simple SQL queries to more advanced online-processing applications, including a look at Java as a stored procedure language.
89 Linux Today


Jon Hamkins

Why Win95 is Better than Linux

Because all operating systems are written by programmers, I assume that any operating system is much smarter than me. Thus, any good operating system should try to outsmart me by restricting my options at every turn. Linux, like all versions of Unix, is lousy at restricting my options because at the command line virtually any operation can be performed with ease.

Ed. - Linux humor -- and, yes, there is such a thing -- at its finest.

Suing for Keywords Estee Lauder and Playboy Enterprises are both suing search engine sites for misuse of their names to generate ad revenue. In the case of Playboy, when someone types in Playboy at Excite or Netscape, an ad is displayed for hard-core pornography. Playboy is claiming that the sites have "hijacked and usurped" its good name. Estee Lauder is suing Excite for ads that infringe upon its trademark, foster unfair competition, and constitute false advertising.

Achieving Cost Effective Internet Service

A new Internet service has been looming on the horizon for those businesses that require dependable, high bandwidth Internet connectivity, but do not wish to take on the cost and complexity of managing their own Internet servers on their premises. Referred to as Server Co-location Services, these are services designed for those business that have wanted to receive increased Web hosting capacity but haven’t had the money to acquire it.

Display Versus Compute: Why the Windows-based Terminal Is Winning

The Network Computer started as an intriguing concept, but it quickly disintegrated into a political tug-of-war between the major industry powers. For more than three years, each side battled point and counterpoint as to the viability of the NC. As time dragged on, and relatively few NC products (two to be exact) came to fruition, it began to take on the aura of vaporware.

Your Dais Will Come

Not so many years ago, a presenter's standby tools were a telescoping pointer and any slide carousel that advanced without a sticky hiccup. The carousel stands silent now, and the pointer has given away to a bitmapped arrow that clicks through an on-screen slide show projected from a laptop computer.

UNIX Business Solutions


Unitel Initiative: IBM, Intel, SCO, Sequent Forge New Unix! Throughout Unix's checkered past, the many attempts at its unification have included various alliances, partnerships, and initiatives. Nearly all have failed, primarily because of the competitive nature of the participants. Now the call to create a unified Unix comes from IBM, Intel, SCO, and Sequent. Perhaps the prestige of IBM pulling the train and the specter of Windows NT bearing down can give this initiative a reasonable chance of success.

Privacy - The Internet and Beyond

Citizens of the Internet in the United States and Canada are growing impatient with the lack of secure environments. Surveys show that, in the U.S. in particular, users want government intervention to ensure security and confidentiality on the Net. In Canada, the frustration is being assuaged as the federal government has brought in Bill C-54, which will enact a set of rules for the protection of personal information in the private sector, as well as facilitate the legal environment for the use of digital signatures. The importance of the privacy aspects of this bill is it extends these rights not just to cyberspace but to all records, no matter their form.

Small Businesses Not Jumping On Internet Bandwagon

Although the Internet is becoming more and more of a business necessity for large corporations, small and medium-sized companies have yet to take advantage of it, a study found. According to the study, released last month by the Yankee Group of Boston, the majority of small and medium-sized businesses have not embraced the Internet as a business tool, nor do they grasp the opportunity the Internet offers to level the playing field.

Intel Eyes Affordable Cable Modems The promise of cable modems may (finally) be fulfilled, if recent announcements are to be believed. First, Intel is developing a cable modem that taps the host PC’s CPU and memory, following the lead of software-based DVD decoding. The host-based modem would still require a card to connect to the network, but the reduced chip count should, theoretically, result in reduced costs.

Virtual Trade Routes: Why Bandwidth Matters

The Internet hitched a free ride on the back of the telephone networks. These networks were never designed for multicast business teleconferencing or multimillion-hit web events. The phone-line bottleneck is bad news for every type and size of business. Poor connectivity thwarts e-commerce plans and frustrates traveling employees and teleworkers.

* 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
