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.

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.
