Kindle Europe 30.09.09
Sembra che Kindle stia per sbarcare in Europa.
Voci insistenti parlano del 19 gennaio 2010 come data probabile per l'uscita di iPad. Il presunto tablet di Apple.
# Apple has created at least three separate prototypes of its tablet computer. Let's call it "iPad".
# Version 1 was designed with a 7" screen, which was judged to be too small. The latest version has a 10.7" screen.
# It runs iPhone OS.
# There have been reports that it looks like an iPhone. They're sort of true. It looks like an iPhone 3G, complete with a curved back.
# It will come in two different variations: one with 3G networking capabilities, and one without 3G networking capabilities. Think of the 3G version as a bigscreen iPhone 3GS, and the non-3G version as a bigscreen iPod touch.
# Screen resolutions will obviously jump considerably from the iPhone and iPod touch 480×320-pixel displays, enabling easy reading of full-sized book and magazine pages, plus cropped newspaper pages. Expect something like 5-6 times the resolution of an iPod touch or iPhone screen (720p or thereabouts) and 7 times the touchable surface area.
# It is designed to expand the iPhone and iPod touch media concept to its next potential level: as a slate-like replacement for books and magazines, plus all of the media, gaming, app, and web functionality of the iPhone and iPod touch.
# It is not meant to compete with netbooks. It's an iPhone OS media player and light communication device.
# Apple is currently planning to announce it on or before January 19, 2010, and to use an iPhone-like hype buildup period to start selling it in May or June.
# It is apparently awaiting a final green light from Steve Jobs; chances of it appearing in the market are believed to be 80% at this point.

Domani Google Wave diventerà un po' più affollato.
Starting Wednesday, September 30 we'll be sending out more than 100,000 invitations to preview Google Wave to:
1. Developers who have been active in the developer preview we started back in June
2. The first users who signed up and offered to give feedback on wave.google.com
3. Select customers of Google Apps
We'll ask some of these early users to nominate people they know also to receive early invitations - Google Wave is a lot more useful if your friends, family and colleagues have it too. This, of course, will just be the beginning. If all goes well we will soon be inviting many more to try out Google Wave.
Nel 2005 la Spd era il primo partito tra gli under 30 con il 35%, ora è il terzo con il 16. Pirati all'8. Nel segmento più giovane dell'elettorato i Pirati hanno la metà del consenso del più antico partito socialdemocratico del mondo.

Il caso Roman Polanski letto da Amy Sullivan.
Except that Wilde was persecuted for being gay and Dreyfus was persecuted for being Jewish. In the western world, at least, it's no longer acceptable to target someone for his sexual orientation or his religious faith. In 2009, just as it was in 1977, however, it is still considered a bad thing to rape a child. And so it will be 30 years from now and 60 years from now. At least, I dearly hope so.
