EFF Patent Busting
In an fantastic display of their freedom motivated spirit the EFF is going after the removal of several patents that are just to broad and vague to be issued to any one entity. Most of these are not just broad but also in existence and widely used prior to the patent application, making the attempt to patent them a ridiculous idea that would stifle creativity. Check it out for yourself and join the Patent Busting.

Google Michigan Megasite
Google taking over Michigan is of course big news but the most interesting thing about this article is the incredible ineptitude of either the columnist Tom Walsh or the tech that posted the free press article. Just mentioning the cutting edge work force... Oh lovely irony.

Google vs Yahoo Maps
Here you see the old images of my subdivision from Google Earth, a merge with the new images from Yahoo, and an overlay of the Yahoo image onto the Google images. Still, I like Google much better.

Dynamism
My favorite grey-market site Dynamism.com has all kinds of odd gear that you will not find in the US. But fortunately for us, the grey-market offers translation...

One kick is the Sony Gigapocket Video Player (shown).
