Microsoft netted

Software giant Microsoft was embroiled in a series of antitrust lawsuits over the past decade. In 1998, the United States Department of Justice and 20 US states filed a series of civil action lawsuits against Microsoft Corporation. The issue central concerned Microsoft's bundling together of web browser software Internet Explorer (IE) and its Microsoft Windows operating system.

How to net information

Last week, we looked at how you might write advice. The example used was a column in a newspaper that responded to questions sent in by readers. But there are many different ways to offer advice by writing. One method is to ask general questions to which many people will want to know the answer. If you do not know what these might be, you could ask your friends or even your relatives.

Google must keep up its guard to fend off Microsoft

It is being billed as the next big battle between the Big Bad Evil Empire and the 'do no evil' boys from Stanford.

The battle is for the market in internet search software and the players, naturally enough, are Microsoft in the corner with the dark shorts and Google in the other in white. Well, that is the way it is being promoted.

Outfoxed by Mozilla's new cute cub browser

Once a year, the boredom my bundled blue browser provokes in me peaks. So I dump it and hunt for something sexier, then regret the decision. The last version of Netscape that I tested seemed to centre on shopping rather than research. I have also learned that Opera may run like lightning, but it crashes like thunder.

Web browsing made easier

There are usually annoying pop-ups when we browse through different Web sites, especially freeware or audio download sites where pop- up banners are used to support the site.

The more frequently the adverts are shown, the more money a Web site will get. If a user clicks on the adverts, the site will get additional money for the hit rates it produces.

The discussion about cookies in last week's column has stirred up quite a hornet's nest. While everyone agrees with my overall assessment of cookies and how they work, it would appear that the biggest problem people have with cookies is that they are used by large advertising networks to gather data you might not want them to have.

TraHK fund investment: The Hong Kong Tracker fund, as part of a balanced portfolio, offers a low-cost means of buying into the local market.
