Spread the word | Read | Act | Fight | Learn | Tell

If you're a U.S. citizen, Sign this petition. By: +Desiaire Rickman https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/end-acta-and-protect-our-right-privacy-internet/MwfSVNBK

What is ACTA? Learn more about it

What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

It is said that human beings are hard-wired to identify the human face from a distance. We only need a few minimal details to make the recognition, and as such we’re predisposed to seeing human faces in everyday objects such as clouds, buildings, and paintings. This phenomenon is termed pareidolia, and you can see it in the paintings of Oleg Shuplyak. The artist from Ukraine cleverly uses people, objects, and landscapes to give his paintings a double meaning.

Android devices are outselling iOS devices 2 to 1. Looks like this is smartphones only though -- doesn't seem to include tablets, where Apple is making waves.

-USB hosting - use it with a keyboard, mouse, Xbox controller etc

-Face tracking for the camera

-Camera panoramas

Tech CEO shakeups

As +Art Graham pointed out in that last thread about Carol Bartz, this is a turbulent year for tech CEOs:

-Eric Schmidt out as Google CEO

-Steve Jobs steps down as Apple CEO

-Carol Bartz fired as Yahoo CEO

One wonders what the impact will be on the output of these firms.

For Google, it's meant cutting down the number of products they offer dramatically and focusing on the growing ones, like Google+. In my opinion they killed some pretty amazing products, but sometimes you've got to take the tough decisions for long term growth.

For Apple, we might hope for "business as usual", given all the upcoming products have been in the pipeline for awhile. The real test comes next year, as new products are developed without Jobs' guidance. (How far along is the rumored Apple television?)

For Yahoo, it's hard to imagine a new CEO who could put them back on a growth path. The new leader may have to sell the company or at least some of its assets.
