Tech Gifts, and Holiday Travel Tips

Just a couple of items today from the tech and travel departments.

Christmas Tech Gifts?
Thinking of giving a PC as gift this holiday season? ZDNet offers us this report on 2007 security loopholes for Mac OS X VS. Windows XP and Vista. Surprisingly, to us, the Windows products fared significantly better.

Want to give a really impressive gift, at least financially? Ars Technica reports on a court case, and some arithmetic that indicates name brand replacement ink for printers may cost as much as $8,000/gallon!. Impressive by most any standards.

Traveling for the Holidays?
Google announced a new service for air passengers on 12/18/07:
For the latest information on a flight's status, simply search for an airline and flight number, and the first result will tell you whether your flight is on time or delayed as well as the estimated departure and arrival times. (Emphasis Added).
Orbitz now offers user generted advice and tips on air travel. This would seem to indicate that passengers can acquire current information "on delays, cancellations, weather and other issues way before official announcements are made." (Emphasis Added).

The power of the web in action...
