Remember kids, finish your oranges just in case there are baby snails in there. Don't discard, digest!
I'm impressed by ustart.org. The interface is definitely fast. I wish they supported keyboard shortcuts though.
A follow-up patent application describes the use of audio signals to communicate between devices and their peripherals, eliminating the need for Bluetooth chips. From the patent application: 'Look at what we can do with a speaker and a microphone. Isn't it neat?"
WTF is this? I didn't come here to read!
Can someone please write up a summary for this summary?

Who cares? Let's just post big lists of web comics so we can all click and read and woohooooo!
Beyond the obvious (XKCD, Penny Arcade, Dilbert, The Oatmeal) there are at least these:
