Too good not to share! These guys almost make me wish I still commuted to NYC. TOO MANY ZOOZ rocks Union Square.

Well, here we go again. Add LG Electronics to the names of companies that you cannot trust in your home. Seems that their "Smart" TVs have just been caught sending data on what you watch, when you change channels, and the names of files on an external drive (e.g. USB drives) back to their home servers. This is an obvious violation of privacy. As more appliances move to the Internet, we're going to see this more and more.

+TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit  is a very popular video game reviewer on YouTube. With over 1.25 million subscribers, he is highly respected within the game development community. This weekend, one of his reviews was removed under a fake DMCA copyright violation claim made by a game publisher who didn't agree with his review of their product. YouTube has come under fire in the past for making fake claims very easy while providing very little recourse to content developers that have a legal right to make their videos. Hopefully, given TotalBiscuit's popularity, this will bring the larger scope of the issue to Google's attention and they will finally do something about it. Otherwise, Google will continue to be played for a fool by unscrupulous publishers who seek to censor criticism of their works.

"The weather forecast is a State secret". Chilling. The BBC has a new radio play premiering that's based on Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album. Their trailer for it would make Storm Thorgerson proud. BBC Radio 2 Darkside, Darkside Teaser trailer

It's been a long time since I've been to a Barnes & Noble. Standing in their business section, looking for a book on sales analytics. It really hurts your credibility as a bookseller when literally half of your selection is from the "____ For Dummies" series.
