Tbe surprisefor many operators of Web

In addition, he ruled the domain is cwrently being used in a way that meets at lea

"I think it's an absolutely awful decision,"
he said."Based on the fact that we' ve alread
seen WIPO make clear that they'd like to
move quite expliritly in this direction [protecting geographic names[, there's clearly
the potential that this will become a prece
dent-setter."
Geist said the notion that Internet users
would mistake a dot-corn address for the
offfcial site of a government organization
was "nonsense."
"If there would be any offfrial site, on
would have thought particularly outside
the United Statesthat
it's going to be the

"So, it

the healthrecord collecting chain. "Our strategy is to apply technology to these various
steps to squeeze our cost," said Schwager.

to come in the world of simultaneous


machine-based language translation. It
indudes a Web utility that will take a foreig
language Web page and translate it into
English.
The results are far from perfect,but
the translation gives you a sense of what th
content is about. For example, when we used
the Web translator on a French site, we rea
the following translation of an excerpt from a
review of a dip-art collection: Io o
spire
f nbig
simplicity of ore ond hold in
hood, 3Spoce
CiipArrirr disappoiarsby his/herfirs stripped
interface ond o catalogue
of clip-orts disappointing. Not gramatically correct, but we at
least got the idea.
There is also a main two-window application, where you type in one language in th
upper window and the machine translated
text appears in the lower window.
One of the ongoing challenges with software-based translation, says LlkH, is that all
the regional variations of dialects and
idiomatic expressions need to be registered
with the speech-recognition engine. A related
factor is that modern languages are living
languages, and so ensuring that the translation dictionaries always refiect current language style and usage is an ongoing project.
At this point no one would argue that sof
ware translation could be used without
human intervention. It allows one to get a
sense of the message in another language.
While some of the translated sentences may
be constructed awkwardly, and their grammar may not be entirely correct, a person sti
gets an overall sense of the intended message
Many of the technology themes presented
by L&H are similar to those presented by

IBM's Speech Technology Group earlierthis


year.For example, IBM also touched on

telephony as being a main benefi


ciary of
speech technology. demonstrating a dial-in

movie theatre locator whose voice responses


to customer queries were entirely synthesized. Both companies also mentioned audio
Web sites, where content could be read back
to a surfer who had perhaps accessed th
site using a Web-enabled eB phone.

For me, Epson's cameras have always be


quite nice but had a few kcy design iss
that prevent them from being all the
could be. This one is no exception. T
resolution on this model is outstanding

back/record selector, forcing you to scro

wasted batteries. This model fixes tha
but introdures the possibility of hittin

seconds while waiting for the previou
image to save... not very handy if som
Center
thing picture-worthy happens during this
time.
Other small things, however, show rea
ly good forethought, like the fact that t
camera won't extend the lens until you
remove thelens cover, preventing damage
to both (it sounds basic, but some oth
cameras just try to ram their way throu
the lens cover).

Microsoft says one of the key improvements
in Windows Me has to do with system stability and reliability. In Windows Me, approximately 900 key dynamic link library (DLL)
files are protected: they can't be deleted,
moved, renamed, or overwritten.

that in addition to users daiberately or accidentally deleting critical tiles. sometimes,
third-party vendors may want to "optimize"
DLLs so that they work bener with their application. But the process of optimizing for one
application may create instability for another
vendor's application that uses the same DLL

signed drivers, to ensure greater compatibility
with the OS.
