Submission + - iPredict a Cease-and-Desist letter.

palewook writes: Last week, MSNBC debuted a new service on their news site. Rex Sorgatz, Executive Producer at, calls the service, "answers visualized over time". The service, iPredict is aggregated news. Propelled by user's votes with annotated changes in the news story marked on a graph. IPredict resembles a Statistical Process Control graph compressed into a timeline covering topical news headlines. Presently, MSNBC has yet to ask the risky questions using the service. When should the USA leave Iraqi? Should Paris have been released? When will Apple send a Cease-and-Desist letter over the name?
