  • Food Product Design: "Reflections on a Crystal Ball" (Dec. 2003):

While clearing out old files in anticipation of the new year, I ran across some food-product predictions for 2003. Some of these predictions ended up right on target, while others missed the mark. Here's what the gurus said we'd be gulping down this year:

...Susan Eldred, John Parker and Norman Birnbach of Birnbach Communications, Inc. predicted that "the battle of carbs vs. non-carbs continue," and that the courts will dismiss obesity suits against the fast-food chains. They also anticipated that consumers would continue to want comfort foods, super-sized portions, easy-to-prepare meals, and diet foods that taste like regular foods. (Lest you be too impressed, they also expected that although the Bush administration would bomb suspected weapons sites in Iraq, it would not invade the country.)

...Those who made forecasts based on mainly existing, solid trends turned out to be fairly accurate, although I give them credit for noting the rapid rise of low-carbohydrate products - something that took me by surprise based on the contradictory science. (Though I should know better - the magic-bullet approach always trumps boring scientific facts and/or hard work).

  • CRN: "QVision Keeps Eye On All Network Activity" (Oct. 31, 2003):
    • "Network management and security are becoming increasingly complex, but Q1 Labs aims to help security professionals handle these tasks with QVision 2.0.
    • "As networks and intrusion attacks become more sophisticated, security is rapidly becoming an unmanageable job for most administrators. Critical to security management is up-to-date knowledge of everything happening on the network as well as the ability to quickly evaluate network traffic and events.
    • "QVision 2.0 is a comprehensive network monitoring and management tool that provides many of these capabilities,from examining network traffic to mapping incoming and outgoing traffic to geographical locations.
    • "...administrators are no longer in the dark when it comes to connecting network traffic with a particular activity."
    • "The QVision solution captures the header information of every packet the system encounters, which creates a comprehensive database of network events and traffic. That proves to be a real boon for those examining traffic and plotting network trends. The database is quite efficient and is surprisingly small and fast, considering the volume of data captured."
    • "Solution providers will find the QVision console easy to navigate, and the ability to use canned views or create custom views guarantees that solution providers can quickly demonstrate the value of the product."
  • Arizona Republic, Oct. 25, 2003: "Does Anybody Really Know What Time it Is?"
