This is a truth that many people don’t even know about

I randomly happened across this article and after reading just a few sentences I agree with everything in it.  Comparing new tech devices to older physical objects like cars and TVs that we OWN them when we buy them, which somehow changed with smartphones and newer devices.

Searching is just a conversation away

And this is why I think Google Glass is one of the coolest things.  We can potentially have a conversation with a computer and it will tell us exactly what we want to know, how we want to know it.  Not saying it can replace a person for conversation, but instead of knowing how and what to type into a search bar, the computer would decipher for us.

ISP now monitoring Peer-to-Peer

Finally ISP’s are now monitoring their networks for peer to peer sharing of illegal content.  Though its hard to say exactly how their monitoring software works it could detect false-positives in that people could be using peer to peer for legal reasons.  The comments on that article are quite against this monitoring but not a single one mentions that copyright holders have a right to their creations.  Strange how that works.

More Google Glass…

More Google Glass…

I’ve been obsessing over Google Glass the past couple of days since they new release of information.  It all looks amazing, the best argument against it for sure is that they look silly and who would ever wear them… I WOULD!  This article has an indepth interview with the lead designers on Glass, it goes over lots of the concerns and if you can get over that (And the price tag) you’ll be just like me! A huge nerd wearing a computer!

Google Stores (Physical stores that is)

Rumor has it that Google may be opening retail stores soon! This would be awesome! And why not? Apple has them, Microsoft now has them, why not google get in on the action to show off their phones / chromebooks and in the future GOOGLE GOGGLES!

File-Sharing Verdict….. Confusing

Just reading through this article and what we discussed in Class today about the standing laws on filesharing.  A person can be targeted and fined an exuberant amount of money for “Sharing” copyrighted material (Interestingly not “downloading” is the word used).  Though as is more common today ISPs take punitive action against people infringing at the request of the RIAA.  A WHOLE new legal world is out there and in its infancy with the Internet.
