I'm a Mac user who prefers touchpads over mice. I'd love to use Apple's Magic Trackpad, but I can't use wireless peripherals where I work. What else is out there that's comparable to the Magic Trackpad that doesn't have bluetooth/RF? [more inside]

Give me advice on how to pitch a story to Wired? Should it be short or long? Personal or impersonal? Do american magazines have a specific standard formatting for submitting pitches or is it all ad-hoc? [more inside]

Remember this Wired article
about "computer teams" analyzing horse races in Asia? What became of that? Were the theories sound? What exactly were they doing? Are there any other articles, academic or otherwise, about modeling horse races? [more inside]

I am trying to find an article I read back in I think in 1997 or 1998 in a computer magazine (may have been Wired or some Mac magazine). Anyway the article talked about using things around the house to make a computer desk out of. I distinctly remember a picture of an old refrigerator being modded out and and used as a computer desk. My google-fu fails me. It had some pretty innovative ideas in it. Any help is appreciated greatly.

I'm moving into a new apartment in a couple of weeks. It's completely wired for sound and has a rack in a closet for components. I know nothing about components, but think it would be great to hook something up. Help? [more inside]

What is the proper netiquette for editing a Wikipedia entry about yourself? I just stumbled upon mine
recently. Since it is written in the third person there is the presumption of objectivity. But then, it is my life, and I am the world's expert on it. What would you do?

I liked reading this article
about Collegehumor.com and this article
about Delicious Monster. Any suggestions for any other great articles on what successes young people are having these days with respect to the tech sector? I'd prefer current articles to Jobs / Gates era stuff.

Last month in Wired, David Weinberger mentioned
a research project at Stanford that "compares photos with shots of known locations, automatically annotating snaps with information about where they were taken."
Anyone know what he's talking about? I can't seem to turn up any more information about the project.

I've got a network in my home - one PC, connected by wire to the router, and one Apple, connected by an Airport card (which I believe is 802.11G). The fastest speed I can get transferring files from one to the other is 2.5MB/s, which seems slow. Am I right, or is this standard?

Stupid Mac question - I have an AirPort card, but no base station. I was just visiting my cousin for the weekend, and they have one, and they did something
to my computer to get it to connect to their wireless network (they have all sorts of security on it) and now I cannot have my AirPort card turned on without it automatically connecting to my neighbors' networks. I use an ethernet cable here at home, and I have my configuration set to look for the ethernet connection before a wireless one. I am at a total loss as to what to do to tell it to not automatically connect, short of leaving the card turned off unless I'm using it (and Apple's website is no help, because they assume that you do
want to use it). Any ideas?

I'm looking for some good, general tech news sites...something like Wired used to be before they were bought out. Any ideas?
