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.

Don Norman Speaks Live on the Net

Don Norman Speaks Live on the Net -- Don Norman, Apple Fellow, former Apple User Experience Architect, and expert in the field of human interface design, will give a talk via the Internet at the KMi Stadium on Wednesday, 15-May-96. The talk will take place at 5 PM British Summer Time (noon on the east coast in the United States; 9 AM on the west coast). To participate, I recommend dropping by the KMi Stadium Web site before the talk and trying out one of the previous presentations. The Web site has links for locating RealAudio (which you need) and for CU-SeeMe (which is optional). I assume you'll also be able to play back the talk after Don's live appearance, though you must attend the talk live in order to be one of the lucky few who get to ask Don a question. [TJE]
