Since I always try to end things on a positive note, let’s start with the… hrmmm, “less positive” things first:

Before reading this thread please note that patents on trajectories probably DIDN’T kill this satellite, but come on… patentable trajectories?

UK police will start, or already has started, copying the contents of detained suspects’ cellphones, and will be keeping those contents regardless of if any charges are ever pressed…

With that out of the way, let’s check out these really cool things I found:

Eldy seems to be a nice project aimed at making computers more suitable for elderly. And it even has a tarball for installation on GNU/Linux :)

sipml5: The world’s first HTML5 SIP client.

If you have a dataset with subjective ratings, and some known preferences, could you use that to discover other brands of scotch you might enjoy?

Start sending dates the correct way, i.e. ISO8601.

MomentJS seems to be the JS library to handle all your datetime needs.

This was a pretty cool idea: 3D QR codes only accessible at certain times of day

Perhaps this should be spread around more to decrease the risk of misunderstandings?

And finally some programming-“related” things:

Programmers are optimists: This can be read as a quip about the deficiency in programmers with always overestimating their abilities and underestimating the problem, but the last lines paint the post in a somewhat different light ;)

Funny quotes about programming languages :D
