Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal

VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.

Comments about Pogue Finds B&N Nook a Weak Digital Reader

Of course, Apple remains the 800-pound gorilla in the room, since as much as the Nook may not match up to the Kindle, the Kindle doesn't really match up to the iPhone/iPod touch either, and were Apple to release a tablet with a larger screen at a competitive price, it would likely destroy both the Kindle and the Nook.

And honestly, I don't think either Amazon or B&N would really care that much - both are booksellers, not gadget-makers, and would probably do well to focus on their core businesses.
