Hypertext Mail Protocol (a.k.a. Stub Email): A Proposal
Topic: Technology 3:43 pm EST, Feb 22, 2006

Back in the days of dial-up modems and transfer speeds measured in hundreds of bits per second, unwanted email messages were actually felt as a significant dent in our personal pocketbooks. As increases in transfer speeds outpaced increases in spam traffic, the hundreds of unwanted emails we received per week became more of a nuisance than a serious financial threat. Today sophisticated spam filters offered by all major email providers keep us from seeing hundreds of unwanted emails on a daily basis, and relatively infrequently allow unwanted messages to reach our coveted Inboxes.

I'd have to think about this a bit but at least he proposes a migration path.

Canon Technology -SED-
Topic: Technology 7:15 pm EST, Feb 19, 2006

Large flat-screen televisions for digital broadcasting are currently the focus of much attention. Heralded as the new generation of high-quality large flat-screen display, the SED (Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display), jointly developed by Canon and Toshiba Corporation, is almost ready for practical application. Its greatest feature is the ability to produce vivid color images that surpass conventional types of display. Also, the SED delivers exceptional overall image quality—fast video-response performance, high contrast, high gradation levels—and low power consumption.

TVs based on this may ship by the end of 2006.

Topic: Technology 3:27 pm EST, Jan  6, 2006

Mozilla Corp.'s Firefox browser finished the year with a flourish, a Web measurement firm said Wednesday, and came within half a point of the 10 percent market share that many analysts have set as the bar to long-term success against Microsoft's leading Internet Explorer.

RFC 4270: Attacks on Cryptographic Hashes in Internet Protocols
Topic: Technology 7:32 pm EST, Dec  5, 2005


Recent announcements of better-than-expected collision attacks in
popular hash algorithms have caused some people to question whether
common Internet protocols need to be changed, and if so, how. This
document summarizes the use of hashes in many protocols, discusses
how the collision attacks affect and do not affect the protocols,
shows how to thwart known attacks on digital certificates, and
discusses future directions for protocol designers.

The CueCat Is Back
Topic: Technology 2:14 pm EST, Nov 28, 2005

But few people used it, and the CueCat became the target of almost universal derision.

Now it's back -- in German mobile phones.

The German branch of Coca-Cola is promoting its CokeFridge portal by encouraging readers of teen magazines Yam!, Starflash and M�edchen, to take pictures of a special logo with their camera phones.
