Microsoft will issue out-of-band security patches next tuesday according to various tech sites. This is the third time in 25 months that the company has made this kind of action.
The patches will fix Internet Explorer and Visual Studio. The patch for IE is rated is critical while the other is rated as important. “While this release is to address a single, overall issue, in order to provide the broadest protections possible to customers, we’ll be releasing two separate security bulletins,” said a spokesperson of Microsoft.
Both patches need computers to be rebooted after intalling them.

With a great increase of developer support it appears that the iPhone is going to not just make a spot for it’s self in the smart-phone group but it appears like that it’s going to make some competitors shudder in fear. The firmware adds the capability to install applications, get and push contacts, bookmarks, email, photos via mobile me and more but the more depends on the developers. When developers get excited and start developing cutting edge applications that are useful in the workplace but also on a social level, the platform that they are developing for explodes into the market. Already some people have developed applications that show you resturants near you by shaking your phone and a guy who doesn’t even own an iPhone made an application that can control a robot that is used for tactical deployment/SWAT use.
Exchange support out of the box – push email / contacts / calendars, auto-discovery, global address book, remote wipe.

I have a ton of pictures that have anywhere from 1 person to hundreds of people in them. What I thought would be very cool to have as a utility, software that can scan your pictures and select the faces out of them and take a snap shot of the face so you can then do an analysis of what the average expression or mood a person is giving.
Thinking more about this is actually making me want to learn how to program. I mean how cool would it be if you can figure out what your friends or family members average mood is by the facial expression you capture in an image. Eventually you can use this type of software to do statistical studies of large groups and even kiosks or advertisements.
