Track Bandwidth Use with VirusBarrier X6

If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.

iPhone 1.1.4 Update Preps for SDK?

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released a 1.1.4 update for both the iPhone and iPod touch with absolutely no details on what changed, although users of the iPhone Atlas site are reporting improved signal strength in some cases, a fix to incorrectly ordered SMS messages, fixes to Bluetooth problems introduced in 1.1.3, and a fix for sent email disappearing into the ether.

Our suspicion is that the 1.1.4 update may also contain some foundation work to ready the iPhone and iPod touch for the upcoming software development kit announcement scheduled for 06-Mar-08. According to rumors reported by iLounge, we'll see only a beta of the SDK later this week, with the final release scheduled for Apple's World Wide Developer Conference later in 2008.
