Better To Remain Silent...

Oh dear.  Two of the jurors on the Apple v. Samsung patent trial have opened their mouths.

Can you say overturned on appeal, boys and girls?

(Some are speculating on the possibility of a mistrial.  I don't know enough about the US legal system for informed comment.)

Update: Groklaw's analysis.  I stopped reading Groklaw regularly after SCO burned to ashes and blew away in the wind, but they've had no shortage of material since then.

Spring!!

Monday the high temperature here was around 17C, with an overnight low of 4.

Today it's up past 27C with an overnight low of 14.

And my lawn needs mowing.  Well, parts of it.

Actually, potentially serious.

All Well And Good, But Technically, Wizards Aren't Real

I'm happy to see a funding campaign to build a museum at Tesla's Wardenclyffe lab.  Not least because I'm a huge fan of Tim Powers and F. Paul Wilson.

It's somewhat dismaying, still, to see how much nonsense comes out whenever his name is mentioned.

Tesla's, that is.  Not Powers' or Wilson's.  Okay, who knows, maybe theirs too, but...

You know what?  Never mind.  Tesla museum, woo!

Dear Marissa*

Go big on email.

I spent half an hour last night rescuing important mail from my Gmail spam folder, and spent half an hour this morning flagging mail in my inbox as spam.**

Rescue Thunderbird.  Get some top UI designers to make it really pretty, and some top coders to make it really fast.  Get it on Android and iOS.  And then make it seamless to use it with Yahoo mail, and make it seamless to move from Gmail or Hotmail/Outlook to Yahoo.

Thank you.

* Marissa Mayer is the new CEO of Yahoo!, formerly employee number 20 at Google.
** And missed the tick box once and had to go and rescue a critical conversation.
