Vote for TidBITS in 4th Best of the Mac Web Survey! From today, 14-Oct-02, through Tuesday, 22-Oct-02, the Low End Mac Web site is running the latest installment of their semi-annual popularity contest for Macintosh news and information Web sites. Last time we ranked 3rd in user rankings and 12th in overall votes; I'd love to see those numbers climb this year. So please take a moment and help the TidBITS PR cause with a vote, but make sure to rank your other favorite Mac sites too. This time around, Low End Mac broke the list of 100 sites into 4 pages of 25 sites each, so TidBITS is in the Group D list, linked directly below. [ACE]
Find Which Applications Phone Home with VirusBarrier X6
Worried about rogue applications or spyware "phoning home" with your private data? Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers. Once you know which apps are phoning home, you can block or allow each individually, and you can even block or allow specific ports for each application, to ensure that your private data stays private.
