Apple's 'Kinected' Kitchen -- InformationWeek
"In March, inventor Timothy R. Pryor assigned his interest in three patents and 10 patent applications covering methods for interacting with automobile telematics equipment and home appliances over to Apple.
"Executed on March 30, 2010, and recorded by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on May 3, 2010, the transfer of intellectual property -- presumably for a significant fee -- suggests that Apple is making a serious effort to develop products related to home and vehicle systems automation."

Update to the Save interface >> delicious blog
"Yesterday we released a major change to our primary action on Delicious and (not surprisingly with a change of this scale) you all immediately responded by giving us some really great feedback on what you liked and what you didn't."
But mostly what they (and we) didn't. What's really unexplained is what Delicious hoped to get out of this change, which has so many UI flaws (no resizable box for notes, for example) that it would make a good case study in Getting It Wrong Through Insufficient Testing For Irritancy On Humans.

Wikileaks and Amazon Web Services: some thoughts >> Joseph Galarneau
The chief operating office of Newsweek points out that the internet's very unlike the world of print publishing: "The power of the press can be dramatically limited when the power to the press is disconnected. Outside the newspaper industry, few publishers actually own their own printing presses. U.S. courts rarely exercise prior restraint (orders that prohibit publication), and most printers rely on their customers to shoulder the legal liability if there are disputes. But as Amazon's silencing of Wikileaks demonstrates, the rules can change when media companies move on to the Internet, with its very different methods of publishing."
