Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers.

Macworld Expo becomes Macworld|iWorld

Send Article to a Friend

Macworld (the publication, not the conference) covers the name change for Macworld (the conference, not the publication), talking with Macworld|iWorld’s vice president and general manager, Paul Kent. Along with the name change come some format changes, with more focus on music, art, and film. Training sessions, now called Tech Talks, now come at the lower price of $75. All in all, the changes appear to be the most significant since Apple pulled out several years ago.favicon follow link
