Google Wiring New York City's Chelsea For Free Wi-Fi

sdriver Re:Results from Mountain View, not promising for N (67 comments)

Sounds like he has had much better results then I do with Google's wireless in Mountain View.

Backing Up Laptops In a Small Business?

sdriver Worry about laptops getting stolen! (293 comments)

Maybe you should be worrying about all your customers data floating around random laptops...

Directly put your customers data on big boxes at the office... let people remote desktop in and work. No longer will you have a backup problem for laptops - nor a security problem.

sdriver writes "The Register reports at+t YellowPages.com has been hit by an overtime class-action suit. IBM has previously settled for such abuses for $65 million with Electronic Arts paying nearly $15 million as well. I for one would love to get all the overtime I've worked paid... my 6 figure salary ends up being around $30/hour for all the time I've put in... *grumble*."

A student has "sued the St. Petersburg city education committee, claiming the 10th-grade biology textbook used at the Cervantes Gymnasium was offensive to believers and that teachers should offer an alternative to Darwin's famous theory." The court held hearings today."

sdriver (126467) writes "San Francisco's bluegills went to work about a month ago, guarding the drinking water of more than 1 million people from substances such as cyanide, diesel fuel, mercury and pesticides. "There's no known manmade sensor that can do the same job as the bluegill." The New York City Department of Environmental Protection reported at least one instance in which the system caught a toxin before it made it into the water supply."

sdriver writes "If you thought getting laid off from email was bad (like the folks at Radio Shack). Then Money Magazine has some more fun ways... Strategy 3: There is no such thing as "too low." So don't be afraid to test bottom. One option is to let employees figure things out for themselves. One company deliberately left a new organizational chart on the photocopy machines. Some employees were left off entirely, and others were moved to new positions."
