Google Desktop Search: Security Threat (The other side)
Topic: Technology 10:04 am EDT, Oct 18, 2004

]Google Desktop Search might just be too good. Using the new
]software, I was able to bypass user names and passwords that
]secure Web-based e-mail programs and view personal messages sent
]and received on public PCs.

]Using Google's new software on a shared computer at the Google
]booth at the Digital Life trade show floor I was able to easily
]search for, find, and read private Yahoo e-mail sent on the
]computer by previous users earlier in the day.

]Marissa Mayer, Google's director of consumer Web products, told
]me she wasn't surprised. "This is not a bug, rather a feature,"
]she says. Google always intended people to be able to index and
]search Web-based e-mail viewed and composed on PC, she says.
]Google Desktop Search is not intended to be used on computers
]that are shared with more than one person, she say.

She specifically said it was not intended for shared computers.

Google's Desktop Search: First Impressions
Topic: Technology 9:54 am EDT, Oct 18, 2004

]It's bizarre when you think about it: At the moment, it's easier
]for most PC users to find information in the billions of pages t
]hat make up the Web than it is to find it on their own hard
]drives. That's because Windows' built-in search tools are so
]crude, and Google is so good. But with Google's new Desktop
]Search utility, help is at hand--because you can now use Google
]to search your drive.

]It's a completely Googlesque search experience, which means it's
]fast, uncluttered, and accurate. And because Desktop's just
]another kind of Google search, you can quickly hop between
]results on your own system and ones on the Web, in newsgroups,
]and in other Google repositories.

]while it's extremely cool, it's not perfect. For one thing, it
]can't index every type of file--for instance, it doesn't handle
]the e-mail program we use here at PC World, Lotus Notes. (Too bad-
]-Notes' built-in search tools are nearly as annoying as

]At the moment, at least, it's also short on advanced features.
]For example, it doesn't let you limit results to files created
]within a certain date range. (Even Windows search does that.)

]Then there's something my colleague Tom Spring has blogged a
]about: "This utility is so good that it finds stuff you might not
]want found, such as e-mails and chat transcripts."

Topic: Current Events 11:52 am EDT, Sep 30, 2004

] The Justice Department will likely appeal a court ruling
] that declared unconstitutional a Patriot Act provision
] allowing secret and unchallengeable searches of Internet
] and telephone records

]Ashcroft, in the Netherlands to meet with European Union

]effectively" to threats, he also called personal security equal
]in importance and "especially prized in our system of justice."

Education Secretary Calls Teachers Union Terrorist
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:51 am EDT, Sep 24, 2004

] Education Secretary Rod Paige today called the National
] Education Association a "terrorist group" but later
] apologized for the remark saying that it was insensitive
] to well-meaning terrorists everywhere.
] "To equate American teachers to terrorists was an
] unfortunate choice of words on my part," said Paige in a
] written statement. "Terrorists the world over are known
] for their ability to inspire children to do incredible
] things and to put them in the same category as our lazy,
] selfish, do nothing teachers and their union was wrong. I
] am sorry."

] "The commitment they get out of their students is
] increasingly impressive. Terrorist
] groups are consistently emboldening their youth with
] results driven training and stern classroom discipline.
] By giving kids seemingly unobtainable goals such as
] simultaneous suicide bus attacks, they are challenging
] them to learn the basics of chemistry, the logistics of
] traffic planning and the value of teamwork. If any of
] these kids lived, their groups would be major world
] powers."
