There have been a few little snippets related to stuff that has appeared in this blog.
- Daniel Engber cottons on to the missing population question in global warming. This is something I have written about here and here.
- The Netherlands’ Competition Authority says what we all knew, that Apple was not tying its iPod with iTunes. Why? Because you can play non-iTunes songs on an iPod and can play iTunes songs on other things such as a computer. Ta da!
- iPhone unlock is taking Australian orders. I think I’ll wait on that one until the price drop; although Steve Levitt seems to think that people will actually shy away from companies that are seen to make a profit. We in Australia would have paid good money to be screwed by Apple on the iPhone.
- Lego have notified me that my Millennium Falcon will be shipping soon. That is 5,195 pieces of fun. It will look great but way out of proportionate scale sitting next to this one that I made a couple of years ago.
- And if you watch last week’s episode of The Chaser (which I finally did), they attempted to breach APEC security then too but with less success. So they were repeat offenders and still got through. Also, Melbournians are happy with increased security.
