Microsoft surprise me. They seem to have jumped in with Surface - which may look suspiciously like Multitouch even if they don't credit it in the history - but actually appears to offer something more. Surface puts together a large multi-touch screen (in a table-top) with smart objects interacting via (I suppose) radio and touch.

The example applications in movies on the MS site are about as uninspiring as you can imagine (although pitching to expensive bars and restaurants is probably a good idea in the short-term, so menus and interactive drinks make sense) but you can see that if the hackers are just allowed to get their hands on this there'll be some interesting results.

How weird! When I save a page from inside Firefox it saves something called injection_graph_func.js and injection_graph.css which seems to have been put there by Skype. And it modifies the page to call them.

Anyone know anything about this?

Fabius Maximus :

And will we be outraged and shocked -- shocked -- if Iran's gov't "mounts covert black ops" against the US?

Not sure how reliable this is, but could we be hitting Peak Oil in 2007?

Have a look at FlickrVision and TwitterVision.


And this screensaver is gonna be amazing.

Oh, and I have a Twitter account, though I don't really get it yet.

Interesting (and disturbing) story on Global Guerrilla style co-operation between FARC and Brazilian gangs.
