Episode 140: Mozilla's Mike Shaver, Windows Home Server, Trackballs and .TV!
What's new in Episode 140 STUFF • Mozilla is the nonprofit software company behind Firefox... and Mozilla's Mike Shaver is taking Firefox add-ons where no extentions have gone before. We throw every question we can think of at him! • Microsoft Windows Home Server: Beta 2 looks pretty good. • You can volunteer for the Windows Home Server beta by filling out a survey. • The Itiva folks called us and say if you leave the Qmesh client running, a P2P element will kick in and could make downloads even faster. Keep emailing us your feedback, and please put Itivia in the subject line! (PS, they're working on the Firefox right click problem.) • Jason says "Tuvalu is the country specific address behind .TV Patrick." • Get rid of Norton? Rey says SYMClean can help. • There's something even more potent: The Norton Removal Tool... thanks for emailing that tip, Andrew! • Where did Patrick's clear trackball come from? The bargain basement box in some local computer store... about five years ago. Logitech still makes some good ones. (Dang, check out Kensington's Expert Mouse!) NEWS • HD DVD backup for $49.95? Rob says it'll soon be free for Blu-ray and HD DVD. • John Edwards' campaign first in Second Life • D-Wave Demos Quantum Computing... it's all about niobium, qubits and modeling! • Hitatchi builds Worlds Smallest RFID Tag MORE STUFF • Next Tuesday: • Fave Firefox extentions: email us your favorites and we'll show 'em off with ours!
