- Wired News reports, Software for Tea-Making Duties : Nik Roope's Teabuddy. I say make a coffeester and you're in business! And don't stop at that, take-out-the-garbage-buddy and in the Singapore context, dabao-ster!
- Boing Boing reports, Space Needle to be converted to WiFi antenna : "Antennas and radio equipment are being installed 605 feet up at the top of the Space Needle and in four other spots around the city" and all they're getting is 5 square miles of coverage? That's like a 1.3 miles radius?
- Boing Boing reports, Boy Scout badge in Intellectual Property : To earn this, the boy scouts were required to recite the following pledge (Ed: this is my creation)
I promise to do my best,
To do my duty the MPA and the Media Industry,
To snitch on all file-sharers,
And to love the IP law.
- IHT reports, U.S. agency loses case in piracy battle : Somehow, I don't think the Eagle scouts will be following suit any time soon.
- Russell Beattie Notebook reports, Posting at 35,000 Feet : I'm envious! Yes, Russell has all the bragging rights!
- textually.org reports, Morse Code Still Beats SMS : With phones that come with push to talk, the morse code could jolly well be restored to its former glory!
- MAKE reports, -- --- .-. ... . -... . .- - ... ... -- ... : The more accurate version of the previous story.
- MedGadget reports, MaxSight: Performance-Enhancing Contact Lenses : So is this ok for sports? Imagine how it might improve the accuracy of Tiger Woods, David Beckham, Lebron James, Phil Taylor (darts) etc.
