Always Connected

Palm has unveiled its newest product in the quest for mobile connectivity: the Palm i705 (www.palm.com). The 5.9 ounce device comes with 8MB of RAM (4MB of ROM) and runs on the Dragonball VZ 33 processor. Running on the Palm OS 4.1, the device promises secure wireless e-mail and Internet connection, and automatic notification of incoming e-mail by sound, flashing light, or vibration. Priced at $449, the i705 also features a monochrome display and a SecureDigital MultiMedia Card expansion slot.

Secure Your Business Online
As a small-business owner, you don’t have access to an army of IT experts. And as your business has grown, you’ve likely moved from a dial-up connection to broadband. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the connection may expose you to numerous security holes. Enter Norton Internet Security 2002 Professional Edition ($99.95; www.norton.com). The product is a full-service solution, providing antivirus protection, a personal firewall, Palm protection, and privacy and productivity control.

The application runs on all Windows operating systems and can detect system scans and intrusions, and attacks such as CodeRed and Nimda. It also provides alerts with detailed information and gives you links to online virus information if a virus is found.
