This makes no sense other than being a money grab... Amazon can now charge Barnes and Noble for, or redirect it back to Amazon. It seems .buy will just be a redirect to some page on Amazon, or be something trademark owners must buy in order to protect. Remember .cc resulted in refunds from Clear Channel.

I had this problem at a place I used to work... we were an "answer the e-mail" schedule, and we went six weeks without anybody in our department getting any work commands for the system. I had no choice but to tell my boss the reason why I couldn't close any tickets was because I had no tickets. We checked, saw we were at zero usage, got laid off, and claimed half our pay for the next 99 weeks.

The problem here is not dishonest work on the patent logs, it's dishonest work on the time cards/sheets that tell the bosses how much to pay. Uhm, some computer logging software is about to fall off the patent logs for 14 years being up!

There's a problem at Google right now... it's Y2K search engine is superior to the one that they're offering today. I don't mind the including of AdWords sponsors, but the way they're bossing around the non-shaded parts of the screen is getting to be troubling. Additionally, the major content providers are bossing around Google Search.... I think we need a fresh crawl of the Internet by somebody else.

That definition of a driver-less car is called a "Fiat" and only safe when nobody else is on the road near it. Collision detection for cars is a little slow to react right now... humans are better at spotting a car on the screen and through the windshield than current non-visual tech.

Never trust a computer you can't repair yourself.
