Why Apple will change TV...

Steve Jobs described the iTV as Apple's entry into the living room, as if it were a strategic move in a larger game plan. But with several wireless TV extenders already on the market, why will Apple's be any different?

What Steve didn't tell about iPod car integration -Apple Expo reality check

On the last Apple special event, Steve Jobs was almost bragging about the fact that 70% of new cars sold in the US this year had (optional!) iPod integration available. This is a review of car integration solutions actually available at Apple Expo this year. You can have a nice car like the Audi TT and still the crappiest iPod integration ever...

How did it come to this ?

Interesting story and comments... Do read, if you have a moment...

I've taken the liberty of copying a particularly appropriate comment here :

I've come to realize that if you're going to run a sleazy presidential administration, the trick is to be so over the top, lie and obfuscate so frequently, repeatedly demonstrate incompetence, and allow your cronies to have their hands in so many cookie jars, that people just burn out and tune out.

You see, if the only major wrong thing you have done as president is to get a knobber in the oval office, the people have something that they can keep in their heads and comprehend.

However, if as president you can get us into a war with no end in sight and no clear objectives, rack up the biggest debt in history, make sure all your loyal buddies are put into key government positions (whether or not they have a clue what they are doing), break our nation's laws while claiming that it is in our best interest, use fear to hold onto your power while doing things that actually increase our risks, AND get a knobber in the oval office, then who the hell is going to notice the knobber? As matter of fact, things are such a mess that it becomes too much for most of us to wrap our heads around what is going on.

Used extensively in Japan already, Smartpox are bar codes for the web... The technology allows users to encode URL links, phone numbers, email, and text into 2D barcodes. These codes can then be read using a cameraphone running the J2ME Smartpox reader.

So a Smartpox is essentially a 2-dimensional barcode, which contains data that can be decoded using the Smartpox reader in a mobile phone.
