San Francisco City Going Entirely Wireless

Saturday 20 August 2005 @ 1:15 am

The city of San Francisco of the United State will become a wide scale WiFi zone covering the entire 49-square mile city for free or at least at minimal charges. The city government of San Francisco on Tuesday, August 16, 2005, issued guidelines for a plan to build universal and affordable, if not free, wireless infrastructures in place for all San Franciscans.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said the city is soliciting ideas for an ambitious system that would put WiFi in the hands of people whether they are working in a high-rise office tower, riding on a cable car or living in a low-income housing project.

In fact, according to Intel’s annual ranking, San Francisco already ranks just behind Seattle as the nation’s most “unwired city” in America, thanks to the large amount of cafes and restaurants that offer WiFi service.

This is a security alert to users of Windows 2000 and some early versions of Microsoft XP (I suppose Windows XP without SP1 & SP2 installed). A new worm has been found on Tuesday, August 16, 2005, infected computer systems using Microsoft operating systems (OS). The worm shut down computers in the United States, Germany and Asia, even big companies like CNN, ABC and The New York Times were affected.

Lysa Myers, a virus researcher for the computer security firm McAfee, Inc., said the worm exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft’s plug-and-play service. “How it’s spreading is it’s looking for machines that are unpatched and running itself,” she said.

Symptoms of infection of this nasty worm include the repeated shutdown and rebooting of a computer, similar to the well known Blaster‘s.

New IE 7 Logo

Tuesday 16 August 2005 @ 1:41 pm

New IE Logo
Internet Explorer (IE) 7.0, the long await version of the next web browser for Microsoft Windows OS, will have its brand new logo. The new logo has a more stylish look with some shadowing. Furthermore, it has a gold ring like an orbit surrounding the letter “e“.

This icon and text treatment will be used on the versions of IE 7 for Windows XPSP2, Server 2003 SP1, and x64 versions. We’ll have a slightly different look for the Windows Vista™ version, one that’s more consistent with the icons there. We’re not quite ready with that one yet, but we’ll share it here once we do.

I really hope this new logo would bring a new hope to IE, as Mozilla Firefox, IE closest rival, has surpassed another milestone, 80 million downloads.
