  • Blog Post: Mozilla Chief Security Something-or-Other

    Well, I've had a busy couple of weeks, including selling a house, buying a house and moving - which didn't leave much free time for blogging, so I am a bit behind on current events. So, let me start the catch-up with a human interest post. Window Snyder, a former colleague and all around great security...
  • Blog Post: Zune and iPod Size Comparison

    Yesterday, Microsoft debuted their new Zune devices and when I read about it, I was curious how they compared to both the old Zune look and feel, as well as the iPod look and feel. To my surprise, I didn't really find any good comparisons already out there on the net, so I decided to create my own. ...
  • Blog Post: Heroes, the (Fall TV) Legacy

    I was a big fan of Heroes last year and, to my surprise, it was a big hit even outside of the sci-fi, superhero, geek space. The combination of the good stories, the new revelations each week and the soap-opera-like connections between the different characters appeared to a bit wider audience than might...
  • Blog Post: The Saga of My Luggage & British Air - Prologue

    Since I shared my original complaint about lost luggage in The Saga of My Luggage & British Air , I thought I should finish the story. Tuesday - no bag . So, Tuesday I woke up in my hotel in Berlin, got ready for the day and packed up to check out, since we were traveling to Hamburg after our meetings...
  • Blog Post: Forget the IPhone, Give me the JPhone

    Phones are a lot like other products in that when you get the one you think you want, your main takeaway is to learn about what you want different on your next purchase. My wife and I are always discussing key things we want in our next home purchase (like more garage space, for example) - though we...
  • Blog Post: December 2006 Catch-up

    Well, between the Holidays and 2 weeks of being sick, I didn't stay very current during December. So, to get back on track, I thought I'd create this summary, backdate it to December 31 (today is January 2nd, 2007), just so I can share my comments on some of the interesting security happenings during...
  • Blog Post: The Four Horsemen of CLeopatra's Barge

    One of the more interesting session I went to yesterday was a talk by Chris Hoff called " The Four Horsemen of the Virtualization Apocalypse ." (If you've never read Hoff's blog, you should check it out at http://rationalsecurity.typepad.com/ .) I thought I was keeping a close eye on security and virtualization...
  • Blog Post: Stepto Has *not* Left the Building

    Not building 27, nor the security team, that is. A couple of days ago, I'm on the phone with a colleague from another group, who says "hey, I heard, Stepto (aka Stephen Toulouse) is leaving the STU to join the Windows Vista team." I said, "err... I don't think so." So he sent me a link to this story...
  • Blog Post: The Saga of My Luggage & British Air

    I fly a lot. I've flown a lot. Twenty years ago when I interviewed in California for what was to become my first job - I had never flown. Then, when I showed up for that job, they immediately sent me on the road for 5 weeks. That was in 1987 and I don't think it slowed down at all until about 2002, when...
