Price war in loom for wireless Web

Verizon Wireless is expected to cut the price of its high-speed wireless Internet service by as much as 25 percent early next week in a bid to increase its customer base for the service, one analyst said on Friday.

The No. 2 U.S mobile service and the country's first to sell wireless Web links with speeds comparable to some home broadband services, will cut its $80 a month rate plan to about $60 in a bid to stay ahead of rivals such as Sprint Nextel, said American Technology Research analyst Albert Lin. (Source: CNN.com)

PDA attacks: palm size devices - PC size threats

Since most companies barely recognize the PDA in their policies or control systems, they often have no idea how they are used on the network or at remote sites.  This is bad.  Not only can the PDA itself be compromised to the point of where an attacker can access everthing held in its memory, but in many cases, the PDA itself can be made into a trojan that can turn a network inside out.  This article will examine just some of the ways that a PDA can be owned by an attacker and what can happen as a result.

Word processor TextMaker 2005 in public beta

SoftMaker, the German maker of multi-platform office software, announced today the public beta release of its flagship word processor TextMaker 2005 for Windows.

TextMaker 2005 offers a feature set comparable to Microsoft Word 2003 -- even including advanced features like AutoShapes, WordArt, and Track Changes -- but is more reliable with long documents, significantly less expensive, and works on multiple platforms: Windows, Linux, Pocket PCs (Windows Mobile), Handheld PCs, Windows CE.NET, Qtopia, and FreeBSD.

The beta for Windows is available immediately from the company's web site at www.softmaker.com/english/tmw05_en.htm

Beta versions for the other supported operating systems will be released in the coming weeks.

One of TextMaker's main attractions is its superior compatibility with the Microsoft Word ".doc" file format. Users won't find another word processor that is as capable of handling complex Microsoft Word files as TextMaker 2005. In fact, many of the new features in TextMaker 2005 have been designed with the goal of allowing TextMaker users to work seamlessly in Microsoft Word-dominated environments.

TextMaker 2005 also offers compatibility with the open source office suite OpenOffice.org and the industry standard OpenDocument (née OASIS) file format.

Improvements in TextMaker 2005 include full Unicode support with special handling for Asian scripts, an AutoShape-compatible drawing layer, WordArt, tracked changes, objects anchored to paragraphs, better table handling, and a bibliography function.

TextMaker 2005 comes with user interfaces in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese.

When released, TextMaker 2005 will carry a suggested retail price of US$ 49.95 (49.95 Euro) -- significantly below Microsoft Word's list price.  (Source: Press Release)
