Things which amused or interested me today:

  • Deep-Fried Butter Update
    September 13, 2009 – I like butter. Not this much.
  • Eucalyptus Enables Private Clouds on VMware
    September 12, 2009 – OK, too much software business. But anyone providing bridge software between private & public clouds is a good thing.
  • BLADE Network Rides OEM Deals to $230M Valuation
    September 12, 2009 – This could get interesting. Blade Network Tech appears to have at least a few people from the former Alteon Networks, which were the folks to figure out gigabit ethernet and FPGA/ASIC-based load balancing (in hardware circuitry) in the 90s, outperforming everyone else (who were still doing their calculations in software) by orders of magnitude. Maybe time for a round 2?
  • Aspera Bypasses Bandwidth Bottlenecks to EC2
    September 12, 2009 – Interesting. It certainly won’t cut down on bandwidth costs, but their tech works for speed — it’ll transfer at the bandwidth you set whether the endpoints are next door or halfway across the world.
  • Stacked airplane seating concept terrifying
    September 12, 2009 – Hey, at least there’ll finally be more legroom in coach!
  • Stainless steel Sharpie
    September 12, 2009 – Sharpies are useful enough to keep around all the time; the company’s finally come up with a refillable, stainless steel sharpie instead of the disposable plastic kind.
  • Polaris, a new cell phone x robot that acts as a desktop secretary
    September 12, 2009 – Your new japanese robot personal assistant will learn from your cellphone…
  • Well, It Is.
    September 12, 2009 – This is why….
  • Update: Teapot-Blowing Contest — Pictures
    September 12, 2009 – Hmm, looks like teapot-blowing may be the new phone-booth-stuffing or roller-coaster-chess-playing.
  • Kymera Magic Wand Universal TV Remote
    September 12, 2009 – This is, of course, the natural evolution of gesture-based control. Also technology so sophisticated it seems like magic.
  • The Robots —Rotfront
    September 12, 2009 – This song is kind of a klezmer-eastern-european something that I can imagine being the soundtrack to a montage of a robot army assembling itself. I’ve been hanging around with too many evil geniuses lately.
