Vin Dieselgram (via InsoOutso) – ok, that’s funny. Translation From MS-Speak to English of Selected Portions of Tony Ross’s “Distributed Extensibility Submission” – good stuff, as usual. Arctic seas turn to acid, putting vital food chain at risk | Environment | The Observer – not thinking about this stuff because it’s scary isn’t working anymore.

T-Mobile: we probably lost all your Sidekick data – I always feel better when I control my backups.
