In response to that judge's decision in a Santa Clara County Superior Court to force the producers of the Mac blogs to reveal their sources in that apple law suite, theinquirer has quoted a very interesing article from Wendy M. Grossman on the subject of journalists and their rights to protect sources as it applies to bloggers.

TheWeblogProject premieres a revolutionary and innovative way to movie production, and one which according to its creators, may seriously start to challenge Hollywood in the near future.

zdnet has a nice little article covering KDE 3.4 accessibility features. They say, "An improved colour scheme and a tool that reads out text should make KDE Linux desktop more usable for those whose vision is impaired."
"It's a huge improvement in accessibility," said Matthias Dalheimer, a KDE developer. "There is a new screen reading technology for visually impaired people and a much better colour scheme with icons that have a high contrast."
Sebastian Krahmer has reported a vulnerability in KDE, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the authentication process in the DCOP (Desktop Communication Protocol) daemon dcopserver. This can be exploited to lock the dcopserver for arbitrary local users. Successful exploitation may result in decreased desktop functionality for the affected user.
The vulnerability has been reported in versions prior to 3.4.
Solution: Upgrade to KDE 3.4 or apply patch.
