- With a simple edit to a text file, you can make Firefox ignore security settings and remember passwords. Be careful using this one. The bookmarklet version is also neato.
- We can now edit Google Spreadsheets on our phones. I can barely imagine all of the possibilities! (Note: Like many geeks, I have an unnatural love for spreadsheets.)
- "Web 2.0" has passed from a buzzword into being an actual thing. It's becoming uncool to invest in Web 2.0, and I'm hoping investors will realize the reason the hype has gone down is that now it's the right way to make a website.
- IBM has patented a bullet-dodging bionic suit. Seriously. We definitely have the technology now.
- Samsung has released a solar-powered mobile phone. This means we can edit our spreadsheets all day without fear of power loss!
- Abraham Lincoln was a technology nut, and even had a patent. Cool.
- Liquid wood is coming back as a possible plastic replacement. It's good to see there's something in the works as a plastic replacement. If we switched to 100% alternative energy today, we'd still need a crapton of oil to make plastic. We need to find a plastic replacement, or our reliance on fossil fuels can't go away.
- Andrew Sullivan is still not happy with the party to which he supposedly belongs. I think he hoped they'd become his ideal of the party after Bush left office, and is now even angrier.
- Roland Burris now says Blago's brother asked him to donate to buy the Senate seat, but Burris also claims he didn't do so. BTW, NYTimes.com seems to be requiring a login more often than it used to. Sorry about that. I'll probably switch to a different general news feed.
- I don't know what Cognitive Daily is planning with this survey, but it looks interesting.
