  • What the heck are newspaper publishers thinking making a special version of the paper for the non-reader available within the regular paper? It’s a question Max asks and which has me ready to just pound my head on my desk. (CT)
  • The Patent Office is going wiki-tastic in asking the community to comment on patent applications and help them in picking the most important ones out of the static. (CT)
  • I can’t imagine why residents of a New York neighborhood didn’t care for a Zune truck blasting Justin Timberlake songs through the night. That’s just shocking. And did everyone else notice this is the second company to have a protest site created that includes “wake up?” (CT)
  • Steve Safran is just too funny for a Monday. (CT)
  • Over on The Media Drop, Tom has made the consumer electronics retail industry an offer it really can’t refuse. (CT)
  • I’m sorry, did something change on the USA Today website? I’m just not seeing enough coverage and would like someone to really dive into how it, say, looks and feels. Help a brother out? (CT)
