Welcome back, everyone, to the Emmy-winning "Amazing Race. " And a special hello to our host, the Emmy-denied Phil, with his fabulous pointing finger and arched Eyebrow of Foreshadowing. Since this is the first episode, we are overwhelmed with teams and the names of the people on those teams. We have two Robs, two Jameses plus one Jaymes, an Abbie, Amy, and Abba, and twins named Natalie and Natalya. Can even a veteran recapper such as myself keep them straight?

QUESTION: I wish there was some way I could take the numbers from my desk calculator and send them directly into my computer. Have you heard of anything that would do this?ANSWER: Key Tronic Corp. has the Abacus keypad. Abacus even looks like a typical numeric keypad in that it offers most of the same functionality. These include directional arrow keys, Home, PgUp and PgDn keys. But it also sports a standard eight-digit calculator display, and it works without the computer turned on.As far as calculators go, Abacus is pretty straightforward.

NOT WORRIED about privacy on the Internet? You should be. Web businesses can open up your life like a can of beans. Private enterprise is building what amounts to national data centers, gathering everything that's known about you and me. Few people realize how precisely their lives and habits can be tracked online, and how little the "privacy policies" posted by many Web sites mean. For example, say you've sought information about a debilitating disease, spent time in a chat room for recovering alcoholics, surfed porn sites at night or gambled online.
