:: SBA Asks for Feedback on New Rules on Contracts

Following on the heels of a report that found that the government has been shortchanging small businesses when doling out federal contracts, the Small Business Association announced last week that it is taking public comments through February 1 to help firm up a new policy that helps define what a small business is.

"Our goal is to seek advanced comments before making our decision - which is not something that have done often," said Mike Stamler, an SBA spokesperson. "When we do sit down to the write the rule, it will be the best one for all small businesses and not just a particular sector."

:: Google to provide Adwords API

Google is about to announce technology that will allow its advertisers unprecedented levels of control over when, where, and who can view their advertising on Google search pages and those of Google partner web sites.

For the first time, the search giant will provide its advertisers with an application programming interface (API), which will enable them to link their computer systems with Google and control parts of the mammoth Google ad delivery system.

:: Dumping Your Display? Think Again.

Monitors and motherboards are considered hazardous waste -- so before you throw out old equipment you'd better check the local laws.

Now that the economic picture has begun to brighten, companies are starting to replace legacy hardware with new PCs, monitors, printers, and other peripherals.

:: What is Podcasting

What is Podcasting
Podcasting is quickly becoming a buzz word among the techie crowd. So what is podcasting, anyway? Podcasting is online audio content that is delivered via an RSS feed. Many people liken podcasting to radio on demand. However, in reality, podcasting gives far more options in terms of content and programming than radio does. In addition, with Podcasting, listeners can determine the time and the place, meaning they decide what programming they want to receive and when they want to listen to it.

Listeners can retain audio archives to listen to at their leisure. While blogs have turned many bloggers into journalists, podcasting has the potential to turn podcasters into radio personalities.

The volume of e-mail made up of spam has stabilized, according to figures from Symantec's (Profile, Products, Articles) Brightmail unit.

December's figures, culled from traffic traveling through its servers, showed that 67 percent of e-mail is now spam, identical to the previous month. That was after three months when spam volumes were stable at 66 percent.

This is still equivalent to tens of millions of messages per day, but the statistics will come as welcome relief after recent dire predictions that the phenomenon would soon account for nearly all e-mail sent.

:: School Project Worth Billions??

Has there ever been a brand name like Google? Non-existent six years ago, its now a part of the global language, as in, I Googled this, or I Googled that, or I Googled you. To Google, a verb, is to get an instant answer by using the company's super-computer to look up anything on the Internet.

What began as a school project is now worth about as much as Ford and General Motors combined, thanks to a stock that has roughly doubled in price since the company went public last August.
