FireFound is a Firefox add-on and companion Web service that I wrote for the Extend Firefox 3.5 competition in 2009. It allows users to track their device’s location via Firefox’s then-new geolocation API; additional features include the ability to view a device’s location history on the website and the ability to turn on a “killswitch” that would clear your browsing data (history, saved passwords, etc.) if someone opened your browser and could not provide your chosen password. It was the first add-on of its kind, and it has been well-received. That being said, FireFound will be shutting down on April 1, 2012. I don’t have the time to keep it compatible with the newest Firefox and Firefox Mobile releases, nor can I keep up with the feature requests and bug reports. Home - FireFound Home - FireFound
Microsoft download from The Garage: Mouse without Borders - Next at Microsoft Microsoft download from The Garage: Mouse without Borders - Next at Microsoft I’ve mentioned The Garage a number of times here on Next and Jay Greene also wrote a story recently about some Garage projects recently for Cnet. Today it gives me great pleasure to announce a free download resulting from a Garage project. To recap quickly, The Garage is both a physical space in Building 4 at our Redmond HQ, and a company wide program that encourages grass roots invention, tinkering, ideas and incubation of projects. In The Garage,employees get together after hours to build whatever they dream up and the results are often impressive. 99.9% of the Garage projects either ship as part of a Microsoft project or remain internal, but every once in a while there’s a project that doesn’t fit into any existing Microsoft product which will get a lot of request from employees who want to be able to share it with their friends and families. In exceptions like this, the Garage community will rally together to and publish it as a standalone public download.

Iframe IFrame (Inline Frame) is piece of HTML code that creates a frame or window within an HTML page to display content from another URL. In Moodle, it is a good way to display content such as: calendars from external sites such as Google calendar, Microsoft Outlook web calendars, Apple Mobileme calendars etc. web pages with current content: e.g. weather content from network locations outside the current Moodle course e.g. another Moodle course, a network file of html page content from sites which deliver content through iFrames such as Google Picasa web albums, youtube etc. NOTE: Screen widths are often 1200 pixels wide so an iFrame up to 1000 pixels is often fine.
