Karelia Updates to Watson 1.7 -- Karelia has released Watson 1.7, the latest version of their innovative program for viewing Web-based content in a clean custom interface. Along with a tool for searching the Epicurious database of recipes, Watson 1.7 includes a SiteSearch tool that helps you access the search engines of individual Web sites via their Sherlock plug-ins. A number of Sherlock plug-ins are included, and you can add more. Other small improvements include the move to "combo boxes" that let you enter new terms or choose from the last 12 entered, user-configurable font settings, and additional categories in the PriceGrabber tool. Watson 1.7 is a free upgrade for registered users; new copies cost $30. It's a 1.8 MB download. [ACE]
Disinfect Your Keyboard
Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:
- Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
- Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
- Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
- Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
- Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.
