- There are free options out there, but I can't give a knowledgeable recommendation as to which is good and which is not because I haven't personally tried any of the freeware options. You could always give one of the pay ones a try during the free trial period.

- My first thought was to disagree with your presumption about lack of willingness of people to surrender near total information about themselves by pointing to Google and/or Apple. However, the more I thought about it, the more flaws I saw in my comparison of those companies to Facebook.

- I have moved around quite a bit over the past 10 years; I've lived in 3 different cities in 2 countries, and during this period have been self-employed as well as working for 4 different companies. The truth is, I tend to get bored of a job after about a year, and start getting antsy for something new.

- VMWare is using technology from one of it's recent acquisitions to add virtual networking into its existing products. I don't really have any experience with virtual networks - What are the expected benefits of deploying a virtual network?

- Google actually posted a photo of a version of Google Glass being worn with prescription glasses. So, to quote Google, "The short answer is: yes!"https://plus.google.com/+projectglass/posts/FnpcMY5rW6s

- I use Evernote for making lists, clipping things, etc., but it is overkill for a quick reminder to go by the bank or whatnot, plus I have to remember to check it.

- I didn't really hear anything that was all that exciting at the press conference. Price is a major issue, as Sony learned with the PS3, but they didn't provide any information about that. I do like the ability to save snippits of gameplay so that I can admire my awesomeness later.

- The FCC just proposed that free public WiFi networks be established in cities across the US. My initial reaction to reading that was, "Oh, yeah!" My follow-up reaction a few seconds later was, "Yeah, right."

- I want to make sure our website doesn't get dinged by search engines for duplicate content. How do you use canonical links to prevent it (and are they effective at that)?

- I would stick with DOC for resumes. Just don't get too cute with fonts and colors and such.

- There are three that I'm excited about. One - The Pebble Watch has finally reached the production stage, and I'm looking forward to my reward for backing their Kickstarter campaign when they start shipping The Pebble on January 23.

- The Surface Pro finally brings a full-fledge OS to the tablet universe, running Windows 8 instead of some dumbed down, hobbled OS that is consumer oriented and/or limited in flexibility (cough, cough, Windows RT). That isn't to say that tablets like the iPad of Nexus 7/10 don't have their uses, but they have inherent limitations.

- Google's Project Glass. I remember watching the Six Million Dollar Man as a kid, and while this may not give me the superhuman speed and strength of Steve Austin, being able to wear around glasses that augment reality (and let me call the local pizza place if I get a little peckish) is probably as close as I'm going to get.

- Sorry, but iPad doesn't offer multiuser support. I don't really understand why Apple decided not to include this feature. After all, think about how many times you see kids distracted by a smartphone or tablet so their parents can have a few quiet minutes to eat/talk/fly/etc.

- It may be a misinterpretation of the TOS. It is a little unclear what Instagram is actually saying. The Wall Street Journal had a piece about that yesterday: http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2012/12/18/why-the-web-is-freaking-out-over-...

- I think if you set your browser's cache to "0" and disable history, that should make history sniffing pretty difficult to accomplish. NoScript might also be worth considering, but honestly, I find NoScript to be a bit of a pain when I'm just surfing around at home.

I am unable to watch a DVD, The computer doesn't seem to recognize E: drive.Microsoft chose not to include Media Center with Windows 8, which seems like an odd choice to me, so there is no DVD playback support. You can either go through Microsoft and get a free (for now) Windows Media Center Pack. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/feature-packs

- stylor answers Re: Why does my network printer require a restart every time we try to print a document?It could be a printer specific problem. However, I've ran into a problem like this at my home, of all places, where the network consists of two computers and a shared printer. The way I was able to resolve it was to go into the printer properties menu on the host computer and uncheck "enable bidirectional support".

- stylor asks What's a good, less expensive alternative to a Jawbone Jambox speaker to use with an iPhone?I want to get an external speaker to use with my iPhone. I've heard the Jawbone Jambox speaker, and it sounds great, but I really don't want to spend $200. Do any other good choices come to mind for an external speaker? I don't want it to be too big; I want to be able to take it with me without it being a chore.

- A cheap (as in free) option would be activtrak. http://activtrak.com/ It lets you monitor which applications employees use, as well as provides the URLs for all the websites that they visit.

- I read a blog entry that Microsoft was planning to move away from diesel backup generators to improve its focus on clean energy. But what are the best alternatives to diesel generators for backup power? Diesel generators have been used for backup power everywhere I've worked.
