the new HP...

... how's it doing? An article from Business Week. Mergers usually fail, specially big ones like HP/Compaq. It will be interesting to see if they are the exception that confirms the rule... they still have a long way to go though.

software radio

A Salon article on GNU Software Radio. If it's really allowed to grow (regulators and such might still stop it at some point), software radio is definitely the "wave" of the future.

in the beginning...

I keep forgetting to post this link... Something good to read every now and then, from the master of SF: Neal Stephenson's In the beginning there was the command line..., the best history of computers you can read in forty pages or so.

should we patent air too?

[via Scripting News] An article from News.com:

America Online has quietly secured a patent that could shake up the competitive landscape for instant messaging software.

"The claim is it's a system where you have a network; you have a way to monitor who's on the network; and if you want to talk to them you hook them up," said Gregory Aharonian, publisher of Internet Patent News Service, a newsletter that's critical of technology patents. "If you're doing something like that, you're potentially infringing."

Talk about a broad patent... and the patent office apparently asleep at the switch as usual.
