What if Microsoft designed the iPod package? (link via Rory Blyth, who has a humongous post about the recent changes in MS and what it needs to do. Too lengthy, I say.)
The best Dilbert strip for sometime now. Incidentally, if you dont use a feed reader, the unofficial Dilbert feed is a good reason to start using one. You can find lots of other comic strips' feeds here. Here's a good PJ from Jesus and Mo.
Net neutrality could neuter the Net, and I am sympathetic with this view, no doubt because of confirmation bias. Here's a good summary of the economics of net neutrality. I've already said my position is libertarian on this issue, but I still am curious to understand what Lawrence Lessig, one of the best known experts on the topic and a net neutrality proponent is exactly saying about this. He's written voluminous books on this and related topics, but I cant seem to find clear summaries of his arguments w.r.t. net neutrality. I just read the preface of his "Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace" (you can read the whole book there), and I cant share his paranoia.
