+ - The iPad is a microwave->

Submitted by milesw
milesw (91604) writes "FTA: 'You can't realistically do whatever you please with a microwave, and most people won’t expect to. But the future of food delivered from microwaves — quick, easy, user-friendly, one-button — is a bleak future. No one will become a world-famous chef by playing with making food in the microwave when they're 12. The stove presents much more opportunity to mess up and spend hours cleaning up the aftermath, or even burn down the place. It also presents an opportunity for expression and exploration that just cannot be realized in the limited nature of the microwave oven.'

'It looks like Apple would really, really like it if more people would get rid of their stoves and only use microwaves.'"

+ - Belkin paying for good reviews on NewEgg & Ama->

Submitted by

milesw writes "Via John at TechCrunch: 'I just contacted Belkin to confirm but this doesn't look good. A site called The Daily Background found evidence that Belkin Bizdev guy, Michael Bayard, is paying folks 65 cents to write good things about Belkin routers... I sure hope this is just a lower level junior guy getting a little excited and not a wholesale, nefarious plan for online shilling. I'm positive this isn't the first time this has happened but this is the first time I've seen it so egregiously advertised.'"
