    "Simplicity Professional provides an incredibly cool and an incredibly frustrating Integrated Development Environment and Rapid Application Development tool. Doing both at once is quite a feat. With most applications, it's quite easy to tell whether you like them or not. With Simplicity Professional, though, some parts really shine, but the product displays some quirks that make using it more difficult."

  • LinuxPlanet: .comment: Savor the Unmarketed Moment (2000-09-20 16:16:22)
    "Don't get me wrong: I'm highly in favor of making money. I do it for a living, as I suspect you do, did, or shall. The heartbreak is in anticipation of the lavender fog of nonsense and pseudo-technobabble that has permeated almost every aspect of life now coming to envelop Linux.

  • AllLinuxDevices: Cylink's SAFER+ Algorithm Provides User Authentication for Bluetooth (2000-09-20 14:51:31)
    "More than 1,700 companies support the Bluetooth protocol. With Bluetooth-enabled devices, a wireless personal area network (PAN) for mobile commerce can easily be created using peripheral devices, notebooks or handheld computers, smart telephones, and even vending machines. The SAFER+ algorithm is one section of the Bluetooth protocol. The algorithm enables one user to send a test message to a recipient for encryption and compare the returned encrypted message with his own encryption of the test message. A perfect match verifies the recipient's authenticity."
