What Soluto intends to do is allow the user to focus on the boot process, identify what applications are slowing down a computer and then let the user improve this by disabling certain items. Soluto has also embarked on creating what’s called the PC Genome which looks to map problems and solutions in a large database allowing for future streamlining of the solution process.
This device will not be available here in Toronto until sometime in May – so imagine my joy at getting to play now. I really wanted to see what the hype was all about. I had heard and seen many reports – but for many, the mantra had been “You have to see it and touch it to understand how amazing it is”. So, today, I will do that.
Welcome to this new device are features like a camera, a gps device and the inclusion of media players as well as memory expandability. Some features not so welcome are the new keyboard layout, removal of the spinning wheel and addition of the track ball. Along the way, some unexpected surprises
By now, if you’re new to using KeeWeb, you should probably have read my really basic intro to getting KeeWeb working from a place you host. You may have decided to host it on your own server or computer, but I thought putting it in Dropbox was a good primer for what’s next: Integrating this tool into Dropbox’s API and using that for storage.

I’ve seen great many of these devices, and today I was able to look at the Drobo FS, a five drive NAS device with one and two drive failover capabilities aimed at users and small businesses.
We all felt the pinch economically and personally this year, but technology was as interesting and fascinating as it’s always been. You may have already seen my Year In Review, so you know exactly how 2010 was (and how I think 2011 will unfold). Perhaps, though, you are new to this blog or just wondering what kind of stuff might be in those 96 blogs of 2010? Well, you’re in the right place, so let me show you.
You might have heard talk of a new way to secure systems and that it involves something described as Two Factor or 2FA. What you need to know is that it’s an extra layer of protection on your accounts that can protect you from hackers. The idea is that while a hacker may have gotten […]
Writing is difficult for me. But, conversely, reading is relatively easy. The better the book appeals to my sensibilities, the easier it is to read. The concept that reading more might make my writing better never really connected until I started reading close to one hundred books a year. Here are six ways I’ve found […]
