This is the Sony before they got into the content business, when they were an underdog that made hardware. Sony was a champion of public interest, fair use, and the First Amendment. It’s time for Sony to get back to its roots.
Minor warts and all, you will be hard-pressed to find a car so utterly enjoyable to drive around in as the Juke, especially in its price range. A car hasn’t made me smile as much as this one did since the Ferrari 458 Italia — and that costs 10 times as much.
It’s as if Nissan managed to capture the spirit of your first car, marry it to your dream car and put it in to a package that real people can actually afford. Simply put, he Juke is the embodiment of what car ownership is all about, and bless it for that.
Inspired by the events in Egypt, Nicaraguans are staging a virtual protest on Facebook to prevent the re-election of President Ortega tomorrow. What’s fascinating about President Ortega is that he assumed power after overthrowing the government in 1979, but has been democratically elected and re-elected several times non-consecutively.

If you’re a paid content publisher debating whether you should invest in a web app or mobile app, the answer now is clear.

Does IE9 support 99% of the HTML5 specification as insinuated by Microsoft? No, they’re actually pretty far from it. The tests Microsoft are referring to are the ones they created during the development of IE9.
Congrats to the MS Internet Explorer 9 team for building something remarkable. I can’t wait for the release.
Now, the most important question about IE 9’s release is not when it will be released, but when will its predecessor be released. No browser is perfect. IE’s bugs can’t become a working standard again. Developers need to be able to confidently build against The Spec.
I say that flat is the new black; that 2D is the new avant-garde; that a surface doesn’t have to be ashamed of being a surface. Technology users of the world, unite: you have nothing to lose but your bas-relief buttons. Let us march forwards together, spurning chrome, into a cleaner, lighter future.
This is why I’ve always felt that immersive 3D UI was a flawed concept.
While the 2010 Senate Cybersecurity bill … was an improvement on its draconian predecessors, the lesson of Egypt is that no one, not even the President of the United States, should be given the power to turn off the Internet. […] The U.S. Constitution has no provision suspending our rights during emergencies and Congress shouldn’t try to create one either.
