From the everything-you-say-can-and-will-be-used-against-you department: Computer scientists will almost always be able to de-anonymize “anonymous” data, in this case thanks to movie ratings, Google offers users another way to store personal data, and all of this is old news I’ve been doing this for years, and my solution is pretty simple: no regrets. As an aside, […]
Huzzah! Google (finally) updated GMail for free IMAP support. However, their setup instructions for Apple Mail stop short of actually completeing the configuration in a way that makes using GMail’s IMAP service feel seamless.

I really am not that all different; I’m just ahead of my time. From the article: “Young people aren’t choosing computer science majors because they take technology […]
This is already horribly old news, and by old I mean several days ago since that’s about as fast as it takes technology news to grow old, but Apple is releasing Mac OS X 10.5 “Leopard” at the end of this month. Apple is calling this release a “major upgrade,” and indeed Apple has rarely […]

In all all-stock transaction, Seagate acquires Maxtor for nearly $2 billion.
