pcworld.com: My name is John Dukovich. I've been working with Microsoft Office applications, basically since they came out, and I'm a heavy user of Excel macros. I shied away from OpenOffice Calc for quite a while because initially I heard the macro feature wasn't as good as Excel's.

  • Sick of memorizing passwords? A Turing Award winner came up with this algorithmic trick
    Manuel Blum, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who won the Turing Award in 1995, has been working on what he calls "human computable" passwords that are not only relatively secure but also don't require us to memorize a different one for each site.

"Right now, what has happened is the digital key fob has become a way for someone to steal your car," NICB investigator James "Herb" Price said.
