I don’t think my comments like clothes.

November 30, 2009

So, I only post on Engadget when they are doing prize giveaways (it’s a thing), and because I’m only one of potentially thousands of posts, I figure, why not make it interesting. I happened to be logged into my account this past week, and I noticed an interesting trend in my posts for this year. [...]

Volokh on eLawtric books: Post No. 4

November 28, 2009

Of all of Professor Volokh’s posts on the topic of electronic books (I’ve come to just refer to them as digital books, or in the case of these posts, digitexts), the fourth is probably one of the most enjoyable, I think because the points made are directed not so much towards digitexts on dedicated, single-use products [...]

Why the Google and Intertubes scare me.

Google Scholawership: Calm the fuck down.

November 18, 2009

Everybody is all aTwitter (can I say that now? I mean is it copyrighted or patented or something?) about Google Scholar having case law on it. Wahoo! After all, how can you resist a title that says: “Will Google soon own law?” I swear, in one day, the number of posts on the Tubes, Twitter, and [...]

Volokh on eLawtric books: Post No. 3

November 17, 2009

Continuing my response to Professor Volokh’s series on ebooks, his third post briefly raises some interesting technological issues for hardware manufacturers, and actually highlights the problems with widespread adoption of the platform. 1. Readability. I disagree with the Prof. on readability. I think one of the great advantages to eInk is the fact that you [...]

The Weblets* are coming!

November 13, 2009

[*A "weblet" is a web-enabled tablet device. Although some people also think it's this. Bah.] And not a moment too soon. Today our favorite gadgety blogs (Gizmodo and Engadget) revealed that Innovative Converged Devices will be releasing 7-, 11-, and 15-inch tablet devices running Android 2.0, Wi-Fi b/g, Bluetooth, and be offered through a “Tier” [...]
