Jolly good luck, indeed. I hope you don't need it, but watching from over the pond it looks like there are going to be some very short fingernails by tomorrow...

I completely understand the government getting rid of food stamps & WIC for the adults but there is no reason the government should shut down WIC for the newborn babies that need formula Formula comes in at $15 per can and only lasts every 2-3 days thats not cheap at all. So starving the newborn babies for families that can barely feed themselves is outrageous. Some one please explain this to me, me and my girlfriend are very curious please let me know what you know about this issue!?

As President Obama's economic stimulus package winds its way through the politico, people in the tech sector wait with bated breath to find out what it will mean for the IT industry. Of particular interest is the section of the bill that details how the administration plans to go about digitizing medical records. Once the details are figured out, you can bet software vendors all over the country will swing into action developing products to process, secure, and transmit medical records. Too bad they'll be a day late to the party. Seattle-based [URL="http://www.remotemedical.com/"]Remote Medical[/URL] has already been assisting emergency medical …

In the run-up to Inauguration Day, just about has been everyone speculating on what changes our newly-elected president will bring to the table. Naturally, we talk a lot around DaniWeb about how Obama's plans will affect the tech sector. As long as everyone else is making predictions and suggestions, I might as well too. I'd very much like to see a focus on developing the technology infrastructure of this country. Most urban areas have DSL and high-speed fiber optics (and the lucky ones even get WiFi), but there are plenty of rural areas that are still struggling with out-dated dialup …

With Inauguration Day finally upon us, mobile phone operators across the US are preparing for what could be a bigger test of capacity than the traditional biggest strain on the mobile network, New Year's Eve. Hopefully the months of hard work, involving adding capacity and prepping networks to cope with the upsurge of voice, text and MMS traffic, will pay off and you will not find your self without coverage later on. Obviously, the Washington DC area is expected to take the brunt of the surge, so if you happen to be there here is some industry advice: Send a …

Barack Obama is the very definition of an Internet politico-geek, not least as I just invented the term. However, there is no denying that the President-Elect of the US has understood the power of the Internet, the power of social networking, better than any other political candidate for high office. His application of that understanding helped drive his campaign, and ultimately Obama himself, all the way to the White House. From appearing in [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/21171/532/"]Xbox 360 games[/URL] to developing an [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/20985/53/"]iPhone Obama application[/URL], the campaign has been geeky all the way.

We all knew it was going to happen, and that there was nothing we could do to stop it. In fact, it was only a matter of time until the polls had closed and Barack Obama had officially become the President-elect of the United States of America. It is not the election of Obama himself that I am talking about, but rather the inevitable malware that was quick to emerge as a result of that election process. I stayed up late to watch the results come in, despite not being American, despite living in the UK, like many across the …

Sorry, Obama and McCain are Twitterers. That's what I should have said. Or at least that's what [URL="http://www.techpresident.com/blog/entry/26569/breaking_pdf2008_hosts_obama_mccain_twitter_debate"]Tech President[/URL] reckons. Representatives of both candidates are apparently both hard at it, debating the presidential race on Twitter. The debate started on Friday and is due to run until Tomorrow. Moderated by a Time Magazine blogger, McCain is being represented by RNC online communications director Liz Mair while Obama has some professor called Mike Nelson in his corner. Nelson, I am informed, served under Vice President Gore during the Clinton administration, advising on tech policy issues. Is it just me, or is …
