  • The days of the browser ballot being a bane of Microsoft's existence in Europe have officially come to an end. The browser ballot, implemented in the European Union as part of the settlement to an antitrust probe, caused quite a stir when it was announced in 2009. The ballot was designed to stop Microsoft's Internet Explorer from holding what the European Union believed was an unhealthy dominance over the browser market. But the ballot recently expired without a whimper, which is not surprising because competition in the Web browser space is simply not a hot button issue anymore. The world has moved on. The browser wars really ended years ago, and arguably were ending even as the browser ballot went into effect. The fact is people are caring less and less about browsers nowadays, as they have long since selected their favorite ones. Today, the world is obsessed with mobile devices, wearables or dozens of other things in the tech world. But in the end, the ballot helped radically alter the makeup of the browser market and even changed the way people across Europe viewed browsers.  This slide show looks back at the browser ballot and its legacy to show how the technology industry has changed dramatically since 2009.

  • In today's increasingly mobile and distributed business environment, employees have the power and technology to collaborate and share information instantly from one end of the globe to the other.  But the collaboration process is far from flawless. Ensuring effective employee collaboration across multiple work sites is a problem most companies deal with every day. The issues are compounded when working with multiple branches across the state, nation or globe, and when employees rely on multiple devices and networks in a single work day—which is a typical behavior, as more than 40 percent all employees use personally owned devices for work, according to a recent Gartner survey. When employees can't easily collaborate and share files, frustration sets in instantly. Yet the impact extends much further than that—poor collaboration cripples productivity, slows down network performance and, in many cases, puts sensitive information at risk. Businesses can make the process more efficient. Here's a look at the biggest points of failure when companies try to collaborate and suggestions on how to overcome them, as detailed to eWEEK by James Bindseil, CEO of managed file transfer company Globalscape.

  • Aside from all the stress, travel, cooking, gift-buying and general insanity the holiday season brings, there's another, more important aspect that can often be washed away in the run-up to the end of the year—spending time with friends and family and recording those memories together. Of course, digital cameras make it easier than ever to take stunning, high-quality prints no matter where you are, while awesome new gadgets like GoPros and "selfie sticks" only add to the fun. Whether you're a hardcore photographer or just a casual shutterbug, today's selection of digital cameras offers a wide variety of features at several price points. Although high megapixel counts are often the most obvious indicator of a digital camera's capabilities, many models now on the market offer exciting extras such as WiFi connectivity and location-based services, not to mention the ability to share your photos instantly on social networking sites. Just as important as choosing the right camera is choosing the right accessories, so we've also included a selection of gadgets that can help your photos stand out even more. Happy holidays—and happy shooting!
