If you think that google is not doing a good enough job of providing your the most relevent results, you are free to go where ever else you want. You are also free to build your own search engine that will give you "relevent" results for yourself. I just dont get the "entitlement" that you think that you have on something you have not build, not paid for and are not forced to use. It's their castle and hence their rules - if you dont like it, get out and never come back.

+ - An Android tablet victory may be problematic for Free Software->

An anonymous reader writes "Glyn Moody writes at The H that Google's Nexus 7 tablet seems to be in a good position to shake up the market and pave the way for a serious threat to the iPad. That said, he's worried about the potential downsides to a market full of mostly 'open' devices: 'Such customised systems are likely to be as locked down as they can be – the last thing either manufacturers or companies want is for users to start fiddling with the settings or installing their own software. As a result, the apps that run on such systems are likely to be closed source, since that's the way vertical markets tend to work. Such systems will also expose a persistent problem with the open source development methodology. While big and general projects find it relatively easy to attract interested developers, smaller, more targeted solutions tend not to thrive as free software.'"

What kind of issues should I be aware of with 3rd party apps and AS email account containing HIPPA sensitive emails. Are there options to make this workable in a secure fashion... or should I dust off the old BB"

An anonymous reader writes "Mozilla has published the first Firefox 4 build that integrates a new JavaScript engine that aims to match the performance in IE9 and reduces the gap to Safari, Opera and Chrome. This is really the big news we have been waiting for all along with Firefox 4 and it appears that the JavaScript performance is pretty dramatic and seems to beat IE9 at least as far as ConceivablyTech shows. Good to see Mozilla back in the game." The Mozilla blog gives a good overview of the improvements this brings; Tom's Hardware also covers the release.
