2011-11-28T08:36:58-08:00Mon, 28 Nov 2011 08:36:58 PST

Solitude and Leadership -- an amazing essay on the value of managing one's information diet. Far more than yet another Carr/Morozov "the Internet is making us dumb!!" hate on short-form content, this is an eloquent exposition of the need for long-form thoughts. I find for myself that my first thought is never my best thought. My first thought is...

You say you want a revolution? It's called post-PC computing - An examination of the post-PC wave and its major players.

Developer Week in Review: Talking to your phone - Getting serious about Siri, Open Office on the rocks, and Google embraces SQL.

2011-10-24T10:37:12-08:00Mon, 24 Oct 2011 10:37:12 PST

This week, we ask if Apple's Siri has more than novelty value, and decide it does. Open Office needs you (or at least your money) to stay afloat, and Google bends to developer pressure and finally adds SQL support to its cloud computing platform.

HP Emulates Next (BoingBoing) -- In mid-1993, a few months after CEO Steve Jobs had shuttered the NeXT factory, and was in the process of switching to an all-software company—a path that led to its later acquisition by Apple—the lights were turned back on in its Fremont, Calif., factory. NeXTWorld's rumor columnist, Lt. Sullivan, reported that the U.S. military...

2011-09-01T15:27:48-08:00Thu, 1 Sep 2011 15:27:48 PST

The TouchPad's $99 price point proves enticing for consumers and — oddly — HP itself, James Gosling leaves Google, and a possible iPhone 5 leak bears a distinct resemblance to the iPhone 4 leak.

Placecast offers merchants a geofence to corral customers. Also, UK researcher YouGov says iPhone users are more willing to buy with their phones, and telecoms bury Androids with crapware.

Apple, under Steve Jobs, has always had an unrelenting zeal to bring the consumer — and humanity — back to the center of the ring. Here, Mark Sigal argues that it's this pursuit of humanity that may actually be Jobs' greatest innovation.

2011-07-21T09:57:02-08:00Thu, 21 Jul 2011 09:57:02 PST

In the latest ePayments Week: 10 iPhone passcodes make up 15% of all those in use. Also, Google In-App spreads its wings beyond the Chrome store, Isis signs deals with major credit cards, and execs expect mCommerce to be mainstream in 4 years.
