The utopia in computers can happen only if we free ourselves from
"Drivers". I mean Software Drivers. It has to interface by a serial
protocol close to the TCP/IP.
It needs to only identify
itself to the computer as what type of data it can send or receive.
Even that has to be from a tiny server on the device, which can be
mapped by a address and accessed by any Browser on any OS. The Browser
can have the configuration GUI. This is similar to some Router
free, connect a new peripheral on the USB/Firewire or LAN or Wi-Fi, Now
In browser you have a TCP/IP or Ethernet Device Explorer. Browse to the
device, it can have a IP Addr. like 11.7188.8.131.52.11 . The firewall
blocks all communication of this device to the outer world. Now setup
the device on the browser, now any software on the PC can communicate
with that peripheral to do the job.
AI or artificial intelligence applications could be used to generate the search string to the search engines, this may help simple people get what they want in the internet, without having to rack their grey matter to improve their search results. The strength of a AI application depends on a human built database of knowledge with a capability to learn thru internet or by collaborative computing.
Then i have a small AI - DOS based program made by Greg Leedberg which works pretty well, it is called daisy, i taught it many things for over a year, now it comes up with interesting things, i have never heard about.

Secure Search - Encrypted Search
When we search and get the results the keywords and results can be monitored and recorded at different points in the network.
In some cases : examples - a researcher working on a sensitive topic, an inventor gathering data for his next innovation, which he wishes to patent and make a living.
In the above instances, the user can become a victim of eStalking, which means servers, caching computers in the path and even routers can be tampered, for access to this data. When a competing firm or group gets the keywords and results, they will be ahead in getting their products or patents ahead of the original inventor.
The technology is similar to Enterprise Search, but Secure Search is a search that has all web content with a subscribed-authorized access, SSL and encrypted 'like' gui-keywords-results.
Researchers, Companies and Inventors can subscribe and keep ideas and study hidden to prying eEyes.
What happens when we cannot trust a Search Engine or Search Service. The Solution is collect and keep data organized in your own computer and Search the offline data.

The three hours of alarm remind duration works oddly at the 12.00AM and 12.00PM vicinity, i am setting this right later. That means if you set the Alarm for Night 10.00 PM or 11.00 PM it will sound when you visit the page at 12.10 Noon.
The Cookies 18 will be brought down to Five or less in my next improvement, this way it will not use much Cookie space which is sparse.
The next update will take time, it may not be visible to you, you may not need to make any changes or upgrade, it will happen in the background.
Suggestion - Get rid of the number "shadows" in the background of the clock. Put in colored skins, colored lettering [red, lavender, green, orange, purple], colored borders, background, etc. for us to adjust the clock. Allow us to CHOOSE these elements of design for our desktop. -- EA -US
