Friday Feast #26: Digital Photo Storage, Usability, Information Architecture, More MS Security Holes
This week’s Feast is back to the usual mix of topics.
Storing all those Digital Photos
Delkin’s eFilm PicturePad is a high capacity hard drive unit about the size of a PDA to view, store, organize, and create a slide show on your TV for all your favorite photos. Amazing. Adobe Photoshop Elements is also included for its MSRP of $549 (20 Gigabyte size) to $749 (40 Gigabyte size). I’m not over the sticker shock yet, but it sounds especially handy for use while traveling.
Gecko and Standards
Gecko’s “Almost Standards” Mode is a new article by Eric Meyer for Netscape’s DevEdge. Eric explains what the “Almost Standards” Mode means for web developers, especially regarding DOCTYPEs, and he also provides links to related articles about Mozilla’s “standards” mode, DOCTYPE switching, and more. Good reference.
Blogs of Note is a listing of blogs that cover Information Architecture, generously provided by IAWiki. If you haven’t visited that one for awhile, it’s well worth a revisit, too.
Speaking of blogs, 802.11b Networking News by Glenn Fleishman is a gold mine of information about wireless networking. Learn all about it at this top-notch blog.
Information Architecture and Usability
Microsoft Warns of Another Security Hole
All Windows users, with the exception of the newer XP, and Internet Explorer users are vulnerable to the latest security hole. The New York Times reports that it’s Microsoft’s 65th security warning bulletin this year. Geesh. All those using Windows or Internet Explorer need to download the patch, available from Microsoft’s site.
