Take off all your preppy clothes

  • Giggle. Mac rumour sites and politics. At the same site, a recap of Apple's hardware lineup.
  • More John Gruber: a followup article on the anti-anti-aliasing theme: Bitmap like it's 1989.
  • The NY Times has an article about Americans living in rural France. Is that embedding, too?
  • The Telegraph's naive human shield.
  • Arab News editorial tells of BBC journos confusing Ramadan with Friday, 60 embedded journos being expelled for compromising security. I was watching CNN today and saw a reporter say that CNN had left Iraq "because of fears for their safety", which clashes somewhat with reports that they'd been expelled for being a propaganda tool. I don't know if I can believe them after last time.
  • Yesterday's Sunday Times brings news of antiwar schoolchildren demos being ripe recruiting ground for far-left political parties. This pisses me off.
  • Good Forbes article on how the patent system seems to be going horribly wrong (via slashdot)
  • Alfonso Cuaron politicises Harry Potter in an interview with the NY Times: "The evil Voldemort is very similar to Saddam Hussein. Or George Bush. They're really the same. I believe George Bush and Saddam Hussein should go to a desert island together and relax." It's bad enough that Bin Laden or Saddam might be Hari Seldon.
  • Slashdot on GIS. Oh, and there's also talking about the next rev of OS X, Panther, at Slashdot. Because that's where you for informed comment.
  • Via MobileBurn, the future is calling: your watchphones are ready, but the flying cars are on hold.
  • Via Gizmodo, fabric is getting smarter, with soft-fabric mobile phones.
  • Two pieces from a trawl of interview with Microsoft's Gordon "MyLifeBits" Bell and codenames used by Microsoft. Guess which journo posted those links...
  • Oli has updated that scraped BBC Iraq: Latest RSS feed, we might find out soon if there'll be an official feed.
  • Via Arie, news that war news coverage in the US was beaten by a repeat of 'Friends'.

Hey, stop bad mouthing the patent office, oh wait if it's just the US office that's fine.

Yes, it is just them :) IIRC we don't grant software patents. Yet.

Feh, if only it was as simple as that. Looks across his desk mornfully at the big pile of applications (ok two) waiting to be done.
