TODAY'S WORD: placeshifting

Placeshifting (or place shifting) is a technology that allows anyone
with a broadband Internet connection to have video streams from their
home television set or personal video recorder (PVR) forwarded for
viewing at any location where they have a computer display and a
high-speed Internet connection. Images and sound from the home video
equipment are processed into digital signals and transmitted to the
new viewing location over the home Internet connection.

Placeshifting is an attractive feature of home automation for
professionals who spend a great deal of time on the road (for
example, in hotels with high-speed Internet connections). The
technology may also prove popular among people with second homes (for
example, vacation cottages in the mountains or on lakes).
Considerable cost savings can be realized because placeshifting
eliminates the need for multiple subscriptions to TV broadcasting
services. As cell phones and wireless networks become capable of
supporting high-speed Internet connections, placeshifting will become
possible with them as well.

Another type of technology called timeshifting enables a user to
watch programs at a time different than when they were broadcast

Lost Laptops Sink Data

[Keywords Matched: Intel IBM Dell]
Lost backup tapes may be the IT security issue du jour, but stolen laptops are a bigger and more intractable problem. Critical business data walks out the door every day on notebook computers. Increasingly, those devices are going missing. And all too often, logical security controls that could protect data simply aren't used. While encryption provides an obvious remedy for securing backup tapes in transit, there are no easy fixes for securing those very personal mobile computing devices -- only trade-offs.

Apple Podcasting Goes Mainstream

[Keywords Matched: Linux Apple Windows Microsoft Java "Open source"]
Ever since Steve Jobs returned to Apple Computer in 1997 after a 12-year absence, his company has thrived by executing the same essential formula over and over: Find an exciting new technology whose complexity and cost keep it out of the average person's life. Streamline it, mainstream it, strip away the geeky options. Take the credit. So far, Apple has worked this kind of magic on digital video editing, wireless networking, online music sales, RSS feeds (a kind of Web site subscription) and other technologies.

Napster Waits for Business to Boom

[Keywords Matched: Internet browser Mozilla Firefox "computer virus"]
Napster, the file-sharing company with the groovy name and a checkered past, may be legitimate now, but that's no guarantee of long-term success. The company has been burning through a lot of cash, though it expects to be profitable in a couple of years. Of course, a bunch of Internet-based companies said the same thing, and they went bankrupt. They had no underlying business, and all the venture capital in the world wasn't going to save a financial phantom.

Is Linux more than an operating system?
http://os.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/08/02/1536234&from=rss

Recently our LUG mailing list experienced a significant quantity of
messages which many participants considered to be off topic. During the
several days of exchanges, one person voiced the opinion that to him
Linux has always been as much about the free exchange of ideas as it
being a developing operating system. There are reasonable arguments
both ways.

Nexuiz: Open source deathmatch
http://entertainment.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=05/08/01/179242&from=rss

It started with the opening of the Quake 2 source code. Then GNU/Linux
saw a port for Quake 3 Arena, then Unreal Tournament 2003, UT2004, and
Doom 3. We have good first-person shooter (FPS) games for GNU/Linux,
but they're all proprietary and restrictively licensed. But Nexuiz is
different. It's a free software multiplayer deathmatch game available
for 32- and 64-bit GNU/Linux, and 32-bit Windows. It has nothing on
Unreal Tournament, but it holds its own against other games and on
older hardware that can't be upgraded enough for newer games.
