DVD Burners to run at the same speed as 52X CDROM
Eweek's Mark Hachman reports that in coming few months we will be able to have DVD Burners which will burn at a speed of 16X and will theoretically run at the same speed as 52X CDROM. Now this is exciting. At the moment I think twice before I burn down a DVD, but if I can burn the same DVD in under 6 minutes, that would be super cool and I will gain a bit of efficiency as well. Now just waiting for new DVD Burners and waiting till they get cheap, very cheap. I am still waiting for Dual Layer DVD ......

Got to link to this one, just heard about VS.NET 2005 Express products which are still in Beta. A simple explanation fo this product is “ The Express products, expanding the Visual Studio product line to include lightweight, easy-to-use, easy-to-learn tools for hobbyists, enthusiasts, and novices who want to build dynamic Windows applications and Web sites.” Now this is awesome I think, I don't know how much this will support, but atleast for the people who cannot afford to buy the whole ......

New Design of Channel9
Robert tells us about the new design of Channel 9. Well I like this better than the older version, looks more effective too. What I did'nt liked is that the names of the people get broken if they are too long. Why do we need to see the pictures of members who are online on the main page, if I am interested in any person, I will go to his profile to check the detailed version of his profile. If I was involved in the design process, I would bring the bar which says “Online Now” to the bottom ......

CERT recommends anything but IE-- I don't agree
The Register reports anything but IE as Internet browser. Well that's good that some vulnerebilities are found and I am hoping that they will be fixed soon, but it is not that easy to ditch IE for that matter. Here are my reasons:- I don't mind using other Internet browsers and if I had to switch over to some other browser at this stage, I will switch over to Opera. The problem lies in the fact that most developers design their website keeping IE in mind the sites don't render in the way they were ......

Now this is not exceptable in my view. Those pictures should be secure as all other information is or is supposed to be. Also, Orkut should be giving users the options ......

How true are company sponsored surveys?
Yes, surveys that most of us might have filled at some time in our life time in some form, may be on the Internet or offline. Most of the time surveys come down to statistics that companies might want to know or show to their customers.

From my personal experiences and my experiences that I have heard over the period of time, I know that ......

And if they have been raped even after saying ‘no’, they do not report it for they fear the backlash that will follow, ......
