Vista's Instant Search Uncovers Information Wherever It's Stor

We don't post too often about Vista, but there are a few notable features worth talking about.

If you’re on a pre-Vista operating system, you know how restrictive and clunky the old Microsoft search tool can be. Accessed as “Find” under the Start menu, the tool can’t look at the content within files and does not extend to emails.

Microsoft has taken that search tool and vastly improved its capabilities in Vista. Now called Instant Search, it’s accessed right from the Start menu and looks across file types, formats, and content to give you rapid access to the information you need. Now instead of looking separately for all the emails and documents associated with a particular project, you can bring them up in a snap. You don’t have to choose between wading manually through endless file trees or waiting as the search bar churns, finally spitting out “No result” to a file you know is lurking somewhere. Instant Search starts looking as soon as you start typing.

Instant Search is contextual, which means it will look first in the applications and files you access most frequently. And it will group results by the type of asset it finds – whether it’s a program, web site, document, or email. Click here to learn more about Instant Search:

Could you be responsible for the Twitter outage? | Safe and Secure - CNET News

From C-Net: Could You Be Responsible for the Twitter Outage?

Well, maybe not you personally, but could you be part of it? Twitter confirmed yesterday that the problems experienced were caused by a denial-of-service attack. A distributed denial-of-service attack occurs when multiple (thousands? millions?) of computers try to access the site in question simultaneously. This typically happens because the attacking PCs are infected with malware, which turns them into "zombies" which do the dirty work.
