It's just another person predicting a paradigm shift that just won't happen due to inertia and unperceived limitations.

We just need to use a mashup of service enabled architectures to provide a seamlessly semantic experience.

If that doesn't work, then depolarize the bogotronic flux.

Bingo, Sir!

I second the vote for Logitech's proprietary cordless mice. I got me a Logitech VX Revolution for my Asus netbook, and it has excellent battery life, great precision and an almost invisible receiver. The size of the receiver was what initially sold me on this mouse, since anything protruding from a netbook is bound to break sooner rather than later.
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Man Goes Through Vasectomy to Get iPhone (gizmodo.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Weird, weird, weird! A Gizmodo reader called Mr. Johnson (yes, apparently it's his name) underwent a vasectomy to get an Apple iPhone, following wife's orders after a roadtrip with his kids to Boise, Colorado. But fear not, dear readers-with-your-manly-parts-still-intact, because his amazing tale of heroic Apple fandom doesn't include any Bobbit-style genital violence.

Submission + - Eminem's Publisher Sues Apple Over Downloads

purpledinoz writes: PC World has an interesting article about a lawsuit Eminem has filed against Apple: "The music publishing companies that represent rap artist Eminem have filed a multimillion-dollar suit against Apple Inc. for selling downloads of Eminem's music on iTunes online music service without compensating them.

Submission + - How to tell if your Xbox 360 will break (blorge.com)

fdmendez writes: "In reality there's no 100% sure way to tell if you're Xbox 360 is going to break, but you can find out if you're machine is one of the consoles likely to go sour.

Here's how it breaks down: In response to a staggering rate of failure for the 360, Microsoft decided to fix the heat sink issue with its console. The earlier Xbox 360s tend to lack the new heat sink, and the older Xbox 360s tend to have the new heat sink.

If you're console doesn't have the new heat sink, there's a good chance you're going to witness the red ring of death soon, but, if you're curious as to whether your 360 has the new heat sink, Ben Heck has the deets on how to tell without voiding your warranty and all you need is a digital camera."
