Shifting Places
Elizabeth Corcoran, 09.06.04

Sitting in a Starbucks in San Mateo, Calif., Blake Krikorian performs an Internet magic trick. He fires up an iPAQ handheld and, with a few clicks on a menu, pulls up live television. The screen is small, but the Fox channel's Judge Hatchett is smooth; no delays, no frozen frames. Krikorian switches to his laptop, and moments later Clifford the Big Red Dog is nosing around at a birthday party, courtesy of PBS. He then apologizes:He could download TV to his cell phone if only there were higher-speed service. "It's coming," he promises.

Talk to Me
Elizabeth Corcoran, 09.06.04

The former Ma Bell has had a bruising year. AT&T has lost almost a third of its market value, gotten booted out of the Dow Jones industrial average after a 65-year run and retreated from the business of providing consumers with plain old telephone service. Luckily, 18 months ago a 24-year AT&T veteran named Cathy Martine began pushing the company into something new: VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), zipping phone calls over the Internet.

Gaming Ourselves To Death
Arik Hesseldahl, 11.05.03, 10:00 AM ET

For years misemployed wags in academia have sought to warn society about the dangers of Internet addiction. The idea became so popularized that earlier this year a summer camp opened in Germany for the express purpose of curing children affected with the "disorder." Naturally, government social services picked up a considerable piece of the tab.

By Charles Cooper

After months waiting for Microsoft to give me a reason to remain loyal, I finally dumped Internet Explorer for the Firefox Web browser last week.

At the office, my cubicle colleague--a Firefox aficionado of long standing--smugly greeted the news by asking me what took so long. But rest assured this is no small concession.

With an installed base of 24 million people, PlayStation 2 is the king of the video game hill. An estimated 9.4 PlayStations will be shipped out in 2003, far more than its closest competitor, which will sell about 3.4 million. Unfortunately for Sony, that competitor is made by Microsoft.

The U.S. government has sued a New Hampshire man in its first attempt to crack down on Internet "spyware" that seizes control of a user's computer without permission.
