Just before he died, Steve Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson about his dream for revolutionizing television.
Nikolaus Wood's insight:
I somehow doubt that the Xbox is at all what steve had in mind. In my opinion Jobs would have liked all this functionality to be inside the television itself instead of inside a video game console. Good job to microsoft for taking a good idea and trying to improve on it though.
"According to a new study, we really don't have to worry too much about the nearly 1 in 4 children without access to FarmVille at home."
“Our results indicate that computer ownership alone is unlikely to have much of an impact on short-term schooling outcomes for low-income children,” report Robert W. Fairlie and Jonathan Robinson in a new study of a large-scale randomized computer give-away experiment in California."

That time spent playing farmville may very well turn into a passion for research when they individual grows tired of tending virtual crops.

In terms of mass identification thefts it seems imparitive that twitter should find the souce of the attacks and quickly fill that gap while pushing its users to change their passwords and make sure that nothing else has been attacked.
Google has made it possible for us to have instant information gratification. Just start typing the first letters of your search word and the site intuits your question and offers you the smartest choice of answers.
Personally I never use this model of search beyong spell checking. Using google to find a new interst seems rather broken to me, instead I prefer to find connections from what I am already interested in. Therefor having relivant searches rather than just extensions of the letters already typed would be more beneficial.
