Pipes and Filters for the Internet  —  Yahoo!'s new Pipes service is a milestone in the history of the internet.  It's a service that generalizes the idea of the mashup, providing a drag and drop editor that allows you to connect internet data sources, process them, and redirect the output.

Yahoo! Pipes: Unlocking the Data Web  —  For far too long now RSS has been used in ways that don't really tap its true potential.  Being able to syndicate my favorite headlines or blog posts is great.  In fact, it helped to kick off a revolution in personal on-line publishing that is still growing and evolving.
Anil Dash:
Yahoo Pipes  —  Background: Yahoo's launched an interesting and innovative new service, Pipes, which lets users with a relatively low degree of technological expertise combine structured sources of web data such as feeds.  In this way, it's possible for non-experts to create new web services for their own use or for public consumption.

When the Korean GOD awake, he gives us... the Samsung Ultra Smart F700  —  Thank you Apple, Thank you for your iPHONE that even if I will, most will probably never, ever buy...I said MOST probably.  Okay?  I must admit that your iPHONE gave other manufacturers a kick in the butt that awakened them.

Chris Ziegler / Engadget:
Samsung outdoes itself with Ultra Smart F700  —  Eek!  Must restore... cardiac function... ahh, there we go.  Samsung's Ultra Editions seem to get classier, glossier, and more far-fetched with every subsequent iteration — and if they haven't already jumped the shark, they have now with the rather breathtaking Ultra Smart F700.

Jason Calacanis / The Jason Calacanis Weblog:
Why people hate SEO...  (and why SMO is bulls$%t)  —  This video is so cheesy you have to think it's a fake... but I don't think it is.  (Hat Tip)  —  The SEO folks got really pissed off at me for saying "SEO is bulls@#t." last year, but the truth is that 90% of the SEO market is made up of snake oil salesman.
