facebook cpc click fraud controversy – reading the WickedFire board was fun

didn’t know this could be done

this group should be seeing loads more activity

HTML5 discussion at /. including an open letter railing against the evils of javascript in manipulating html5 structs. Thankfully they all lived happily ever after [corrected original article], although surely a sign of the difficulties involved & simultaneous innovation & standardisation?

just noticed that links in Google docs don’t extend automatically when you continue typing after the url gets pasted – Google docs dev team next target: world peace

The piecemeal trading of design interests me. How does such stuff standardise on architecture? jquery, plugins, commenting systems, it isn’t just ephemeral cool squiggles and colours anymore – it’s whole user experiences with the wires ready to plug in to your engine of choice.

microtransactions & 100meg file sharing in beta @ yahoo mail – when’s gmail going to give us this? Come to think of it, when are we going to be allowed develop apps for webmail systems?

getting back on the machine readable theme: initially US employment & volume reports, fairly black and white processing involved (binary result) but it’s a sign of commercial viability

Interesting article on Digg buying

A while back I wrote about Google Wave and how it appeared to be their take on Facebook’s news stream. That doesn’t appear to be a coincidence

128 a side battles the day before Modern Warfare 2 hits shops

Can’t believe I missed this

Just like a real bank! with real-life pretend solutions too!

has ANYONE managed to get their hands on this? Japanese Outlook SKU perhaps? no…

first iphone app I’ve thought was cool

This is a masterstroke – not because it’s great or anything but because Arrington could sell anything with that brand
