Web
Contributed by: Kurt Pfeifle
:: Open Content

"If you've been following the news surrounding Apple's relationship with KDE developers and Apple's implementation of KHTML into Safari, then it's almost inevitable that you've developed your opinion based on false or misleading news or comments surrounding the issue.

In this comment, ASOT talks about the future direction for Spotlight, Apple's new finder (not Finder, but it seems clear that as Spotlight matures, it will become the de-facto way people use OS X), specifically about speech-to-text capabilities

Web Fully-patched IE was known to be unsafe for an incredible 98 per cent of 2004," said ScanIT's CEO David Michaux. "And for 200 days in 2004 – that’s some 54 per cent of the time - there was a worm or virus exploiting one of those un-patched vulnerabilities," he added.

There were only 56 days in 2004 where there was a publicly-known vulnerability – a remote code execution - in Mozilla’s browser and no patch to fix it, ScanIT said.

MSN's Web search picks up steam
Web Microsoft's MSN is slowly According to turning up the dial on its Web search beta, sending more and more visitors home-baked results over results from partner Yahoo. While the lion's share of MSN search results come from Yahoo technology, the Internet portal is increasingly testing its own legs in the Web search race as it gets readies to introduce a full service sometime this year.

The coming switch-over will be significant not only because Microsoft will no longer be reliant on an outsider, but also because it will likely begin a fierce campaign by MSN to win users away from Google and Yahoo."

Win - MS: Microsoft's Google-killer arrives with a 'whuh?'
Web Google's executives might be sleeping a little easier this weekend after Microsoft unveiled its much-hyped new search engine. It's fast, slick, and comes with a raft of interesting new features: confounding some expectations as surely as it confirms others.

Web Microsoft partnering with Google? Well sort of, an article released yesterday details the relationship between the two, and the use of Google Deskbar in Microsoft’s Partner Pack for Windows, “a collection of Microsoft and third-party products released last week that Microsoft describes on its Web site as “the ultimate application package” for a Windows XP PC.”

Interesting that these companies can partner with Microsoft’s large Windows group while at the same time remain a rival to MSN.
