Sometimes, late at night, Glennae Williams is startled awake by a crash. "Are you ok, Ma?" she calls to her mother. Her mother, DaVeeda White, has fallen again. She gets up to use the bathroom and her legs collapse, just as they have been collapsing since Glennae was a little girl. "I'm on the floor," White calls back. She knows her daughter will come. These are not the kinds of nights one associates with the last exhausted, exuberant, anxious weeks of college. Williams stays up late cramming for finals and fretting about grades, then rushes off to work in the morning.

Twenty years from now, I will tell people I was present at the creation. One evening last fall, my colleague Jason Toraldo walked into my office and asked if I could troubleshoot a problem he was having on Facebook. He had recently put up a page for a small business he owned and wanted to connect it to his personal account. I'm reasonably tech savvy, but I wasn't prepared for what I saw. A nervous pig dressed like a middle-aged man, in slacks and an argyle sweater, was entangled in a pine tree and a string of colorful lights.

So, rock star, you've got your own little recording studio and you're laying down some hot tracks while admiring how great you sound on tricked-out studio monitors. Big deal. Anyone can bring home those studio monitors - in our world, they're known as powered loudspeakers - and create an instant sound system with an iPod, computer or even a television. Here are two reasons the nonmusician might like pro-type studio monitors in your home: Imagine tossing your favorite stereo system in a trash compactor and out pop two bookshelf speakers, each with an amplifier, volume control, on-off switch and power cord, ready to play.

Josephine Hill came home from the hospital in the spring of 2004 unable to climb the stairs to her bedroom. At the recommendation of her doctors, her husband, Ian T. Hill, converted the living room into a bedroom, kept a baby monitor at her side and acquired a hospital bed to keep her more comfortable. The bed, Ian Hill believes, is what killed her. Hill and his three children are suing Johns Hopkins Home Care Group, the company that provided the electric bed, for $10 million. They allege that the bed's motor ignited in August 2004 and caused a fire that fatally burned Josephine Hill, 65, and destroyed their Ellicott City home.

It may be asking too much to expect new Mac hardware that doesn't exhibit any odd behavior, but hope springs eternal. A few days ago a strange anomaly affecting many owners of the new Mac Pro models turned up on my machine. Waking the Mac Pro from Sleep sometimes causes it to spontaneously reboot instead. I know it's not just me because the issue is a hot topic on several Mac Web sites and Apple's own support forums. The best solution anyone has come up with so far is to reset the System Management Controller (SMC)
