TODAY'S WORD: Ajax

In computer programming, Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is a
method of building interactive applications for the Web that process
user requests immediately. Ajax combines several programming tools,
including JavaScript, dynamic HTML (DHTML), Extensible Markup
Language (XML), cascading style sheet (CSS), the Document Object
Model (DOM), and the Microsoft object, XMLHttpRequest. Ajax allows
content on Web pages to update immediately when a user performs an
action, unlike an HTTP request, during which users must wait for a
whole new page to load. For example, a weather forecasting site could
display local conditions on one side of the page without delay after
a user types in a zip code.
Google Maps is one well-known application that uses Ajax. The
interface allows the user to change views and manipulate the map in
real time. Ajax applications do not require installation of a
plug-in, but work directly with a Web browser. Because of the
technique's reliance on XMLHttpRequest, early applications worked
only with Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser, but most other
browsers now support Ajax.

Applications created with Ajax use an engine that acts as an
intermediary between a user's browser and the server from which it is
requesting information. Instead of loading a traditional Web page,
the user's browser loads the Ajax engine, which displays the page the
user sees. The engine continues to run in the background, using
JavaScript to communicate with the Web browser. User input or
clicking on the page sends a JavaScript call to the Ajax engine,
which can respond instantly in many cases. If the engine needs
additional data, it requests it from the server, usually using XML,
while it is simultaneously updating the page.

Ajax is not a proprietary technology or a packaged product. Web
developers have been using JavaScript and XML in combination for
several years. Jesse James Garrett of the consultancy firm Adaptive
Path is credited with coining the name "Ajax" as a shorthand way to
refer to the specific technologies involved in a current approach.

Phishing Rattles Online Consumers

[Keywords Matched: Internet browser Mozilla Firefox "computer virus"]
Consumer confidence in the security of online financial services has declined considerably, in response to continual reports of identity theft and phishing scams, experts told UPI's The Web. "There's been a loss of trust in the channel, but not in specific brands," said Bruce Cundiff, a research analyst with Javelin Strategy & Research in Pleasanton, Calif., producer of a new report called "Phishing: Consumer Awareness and Behavior."

A New World of Work

[Keywords Matched: Linux Apple Windows Microsoft Java "Open source"]
A new world of work is emerging, as networks enable employees to collaborate in ad-hoc teams assembled for specific projects. New collaboration software, developed by Microsoft and others, enables information workers to read, edit and route documents as a team, not just as individuals, experts said.

Podcasting Goes From Indie to Mainstream Overnight

[Keywords Matched: Linux Apple Windows Microsoft Java "Open source"]
Mainstream media companies are starting to dominate podcasts -- topping in popularity the quirky independents that created the trendy online radio genre. Podcasts from ESPN, CNN, ABC News and the TV show "Queer Eye" were among the most popular last week on iTunes, Apple's download site. That's a huge change. Until recently, podcasts were largely pirate-radio-style broadcasts, often produced by one person on a home PC. Now, podcasts are anchored by such staid celebrities as Rush Limbaugh and Ted Koppel.

Is It Time to Switch to Open-Source Software?

[Keywords Matched: Internet browser Mozilla Firefox "computer virus"]
The personal computer revolution is all about freedom of choice, but ironically, software companies typically try to regulate what you can do. You license a program instead of buying it outright. You can use it on only one or a specified number of computers. You can't modify its source code. The "open-source" software movement came into existence in the late 1990s as a reaction to this.

Cinelerra: Rough and ready video editor
http://software.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/08/140221&from=rss

The average computer user is now in quite good shape to develop and
publish content. Video is a fun and challenging way to bring ideas to
life and expand your skills. Needed hardware is becoming less
expensive, and software to make and edit video is becoming more
practical and accessible. Linux is no stranger to video, and
fortunately for us little folk, its quite easy to get a hold of great
Free Software tools. Enter Cinelerra, the "50,000 watt flamethrower" of
Linux video.

Simple PVR with KnoppMyth
http://entertainment.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/08/212206&from=rss

Personal video recorders free you from the constraints of TV schedules,
let you skip advertising, pause live TV, and much more. You can find
commercial PVR products, such as Windows Media Centre Edition;
dedicated devices, such as TiVo; and open source PVR projects, such as
MythTV, which is widely hailed as the best free PVR solution, with
features that even commercial competitors lack. MythTV's downside is
its complex setup; you need to install a Linux distro, then MythTV,
which can be a daunting prospect for non-technical users. In 2003,
developers combined MythTV with the Knoppix live CD distribution, which
aims at simplifying Linux installations, to create KnoppMyth, a product
that's as easy to use as Knoppix, with the power of MythTV.

A successful conference on software localization in the Balkans
http://trends.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/11/1531252&from=rss

During the first three days of July, 25 Central and Eastern Europeans
gathered for a three day conference in Belgrade, Serbia, to discuss
localization of free software in the Balkans. Vedran Vucic of the
Belgrade Linux Center organized the conference so Europeans could
network and discuss future regional localization projects.

Linux means simpler administration
http://newsvac.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/16/1616229&from=rss

Companies initially looked toward clustered Linux solutions to reduce
their IT costs and provide higher availability of their core
transactional systems. Now many companies are realizing that the
benefits of low-cost Linux clusters are equally applicable to their
data warehouses.

Lawrence Lessig speaks on Microsoft, antitrust, telecomms
http://newsvac.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/16/1614251&from=rss

I COULDN'T lose the opportunity to interview Lawrence Lessig last week
when he gave a presentation about Creative Commons here in Buenos
Aires. Mr. Lessig is one fascinating person, Law Professor, a
connoisseur of technology, he played a key role in the DOJ-Microsoft
antitrust trial, and he's now pushing his "Free Culture" ideas around
the world. I wish I had asked one hundred questions, but for now, here
are my ten short questions he agreed to answer.

OS/2: Coulda, woulda, shoulda
http://newsvac.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/16/166252&from=rss

(Editor's note: The tres duh press -- including Charles Cooper and Ziff
Davis -- played a major role in Microsoft's ruthless marketing against
OS/2 with their mindless repetition of the lies from Redmond. But you
wouldn't know it from this piece. History teaches us that the losers
don't get to write the history.) CNET News.com writes "Blog: So IBM
finally decided to kill off OS/2. What a surprise! As a colleague put
it to me, it's like your mother-in-law dying..."

No evidence of any copyright violation in Linux
http://newsvac.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/16/1552207&from=rss

In the e-mail, dated Oct. 4, 1999, Swartz said that there was some code
that was line-for-line identical to Unix and other code that appeared
to be rewritten, perhaps to disguise that it was copied. However,
Swartz also noted that it was not entire programs, but rather
"fragments of code."

Insider Report: EVGA's 7800 with ACS Cooling for Enthusiasts
http://newsvac.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/15/2010245&from=rss

Anonymous Reader writes "When we first evaluated EVGA’s 6800 PCIe
graphics adapter, one of the things we noted was their lack of
engineering efforts to make the graphics adapters something above
NVIDIA’s specified design. There just wasn’t anything exclusive about
EVGA’s product line, but that’s about to change, thanks to EVGA’s
already implemented heatsink and fan combo on its 7800GTX."

Intel Motherboard Sales Still Not Doing Good
http://newsvac.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/07/15/1639208&from=rss

Anonymous Reader writes "Back in January of this year, motherboard
makers said Intel sales were fairly modest. Right after Intel’s DDR2
and PCIe chipsets were introduced, motherboard sales for Intel
microprocessors were on a continuous downhill. However, at CES,
manufacturers said they had hopes for the sales to pick up, as DDR2 and
PCIe matured with prices expected to drop to reasonable altitudes."
