    Working the web

    Database, Gotfried. K, Published on 20/01/2010

    » I've always loved the expression "Work the web", but what exactly does it mean? How do you work the web? It sort of reminds of that old Microsoft slogan "Where do you want to go today?". It sounds nice, but, what does it mean, if anything?

    A better way to find torrents

    Database, Wanda Sloan, Published on 20/01/2010

    » Way back in the last decade a few weeks ago, I wrote a review of a small desktop program that you could use to search for torrents. And as the second decade of the millennium dawned, the main website for that program disappeared.

    A small price to pay

    Database, Published on 20/01/2010

    » Your TOT board put huge red Xs across all the recent auctions and three billion baht worth of contracts to build a fibre-optic network for broadband Internet, and vowed to call new contracts; the decision followed remarks by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva over the high prices of some of the bids, and your TOT will be certain to write new terms of reference for new auctions; the rather complicated auction was run in portions, for various parts of the country, but luckily for TOT turned out to total 3.03 billion baht, a full 0.01 billion below the budget; now they will have to do it all again, and despite what Mr Abhisit says, prices do go up, don't they?

    A bite of the Apple

    Database, Published on 20/01/2010

    » Google released the Nexus One smart phone, an impressive gadget that will push more improvements in the iPhone, but will not immediately take much more than a nibble out of the Apple; the new phone runs on the Google operating system, and starts life with more than 18,000 apps - about 15 percent of the Apple selection but, on the other hand, able to multi-task, something the iPhone apps won't do; the big deal about Nexus One, however, is only about US and Canada, where Google aims to be, very roughly, what Number 2 yuppiephone firm DTAC was when the Norwegians took it over and it unlocked its phones; that is what Google is doing with Nexus, which is made by HTC of Taiwan and costs $529 or 17,500 baht in real money - but which is unlocked and will work with any carrier; this is a revolution in the US wireless industry, where phones are totally locked into carriers, and if you want an iPhone, you sign a two-year, near-usurious contract with AT&T; phone companies will feature the Nexus One - T-Mobile subsidises it for $179 for Americans who agree in writing to pay $79.99 a month for the next two years, or 6,000 plus 2,700 baht in real money; but Google will sell you the phone for use with any carrier from its website (google.com/phone) and this is the first crack in the phone-company control of the business.
