DINOSAUR ??

dinosaur n.

Any hardware requiring raised flooring and special power. Used especially of old minis and mainframes, in contrast with newer microprocessor-based machines. In a famous quote from the 1988 Unix EXPO, Bill Joy compared the liquid-cooled mainframe in the massive IBM display with a grazing dinosaur "with a truck outside pumping its bodily fluids through it". IBM was not amused.

GEODE - let locate and locate


Mozilla Labs released a Firefox plug-in last Tuesday 7th oct called Geode
that lets Web sites figure out a person's approximate geographic location
and use it in online services--as long as you grant the software permission
to access the information.

Geode, a preview of technology to arrive in Firefox 3.1, taps into
technology called Loki from Skyhook that deduces a computer's location from
the signals of nearby wireless networks, according to a Mozilla Labs blog
post on Geode.
