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.

Turn the Page -- Adobe has released PageMill 2.0, which has much to delight Web authors, including a flexible table feature and an HTML Source view for what Adobe aptly terms "light" HTML editing. PageMill's Preview Mode can play QuickTime movies and run a number of plug-ins, including Acrobat and Shockwave. PageMill 2.0 is arguably the most fully-featured and mature of the WYSIWYG HTML page editors currently shipping, although I find some of its interface elements regrettably small, requiring precision mousing. The new version has an estimated street price of $99, with upgrades at $49. If you own any other Adobe product, the cost is $69. Sidegrades from programs like Claris Home Page and Netscape Navigator Gold cost $79. According to Adobe, the new version runs on any Mac with a color monitor, 4 MB of application RAM (at least 8 MB total), and System 7.1 or later. [TJE]
