See Messages the Matter (Facebook): This is an interesting hybrid and probably one that will get used a lot. Facebook was smart not to make an email client. There are already giants in that area. But if this makes communication easer (and it seems it does), that’s a very good move.
Kindle and Kinect Christmas (Kottke): Kottke’s got a great point here. Amazon absolutely won by making Kindle books cross platform. I own a Kindle, and have a droid and an iPad. The books I’m reading are always with me.
iTunes and The Beatles: A Day We’ll Soon Forget (appstorm): I really thought it was going to be an announcement about online streaming, especially since they bought lala last year (though itâ€™s starting to look more and more like they just bought it to get rid of a competitor). This shouldnâ€™t have been more than an announcement on the homepage and in the iTunes Store.
Opt Out Day: “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a Temporary Safety, deserve neither”.Ben Franklin. What the TSA is doing is deplorable. Protect your citizens, but do not violate them.
