A few weeks ago I traveled abroad and visited London for the first time. Upon arrival I followed the hordes of passengers through the long, winding corridors of Gatwick Airport's International Arrivals terminal. With signs pointing the way and chirpy airport officials ushering us along, I couldn't help but feel like a sheep. Finally we - and about eight other flights - arrived at Immigration. The immigration officials were moving rather fast, stamping passports and welcoming people to glorious England as fast as they arrived. When my turn came I wasn't quite as lucky. I'm not sure whether I "looked like a terrorist" or what (I think seven hours on a plane can do that), but I was peppered with questions about the reasons for my trip (vacation), where I was staying, and so on and so forth. I was then asked to produce my return plane ticket to the United States, which ... (more)

Dreamweaver MX 2004, Take 2

As many of you know from my editorial a few months back, I made the official switch from Homesite+ to Dreamweaver MX 2004 shortly after it was first released. The new product took some getting used to and the transition stretched out; it wasn't until I uninstalled Homesite+ entirely from my machine (and was no longer able to sneak back in when no one was looking) that I finally got myself into the habit of using Dreamweaver, and really began to explore its plethora of features. It took that extra push to fully delve into the ins and outs, and once I did, I was surprised and pleas... (more)

Welcome to the Ultimate Unwired Resource

A few weeks ago I went to my local mall to buy a new cell phone. The old one looked as though it had been through some sort of war, so it was well past the time to replace it. I picked out a model I liked and went over to talk to a salesperson to select the monthly plan that was going to rip me off the least. While complimenting me on my selection, the salesman told me that one "amazing new feature" of that model was that it was a WAP-phone so I could access "the entire Internet over it." He then rattled off several groundbreaking new features ranging from sports scores to movie ... (more)

Is Wireless Ready for Prime Time? Maybe...

Before moving into a new apartment a few months ago, I did what any self-respecting technology-obsessed person would do - ensure that all the necessary staples of my existence would be turned on and tested before I arrived. The week before I planned to move in, I scheduled installations of cable, RoadRunner (cable modem), telephone service, and gas (even I need heat and a stove), and arranged for my power to be turned on as well. My landlord agreed to be there for all these installations, and I slept easy knowing that my Internet, and thus my ability to work at my livelihood, wou... (more)
