betabeat.com
Does it ever seem like Pandora’s sourcing is a little… off? You’ll hear a golden oldie, only to look and see it’s been pulled from some random soundtrack to a forgotten, shitty movie. “That’s weird,” you’ll think, before diving back into your workday. Well, the trend appears to have reached...

USPTO planning two roundtable discussions with developers about software patents

www.engadget.com
We know, we know: the patent system is broken. But what exactly should the US Patent and Trademark Office do to reform itself, particularly where nebulous software claims are concerned? If you ask the developers themselves, they might tell you code was never meant to be patented. Obviously, an...

At this rate, it will take Twitter about 10 years to reach Facebook's current number of active users

Social networking company Twitter now has 200 million monthly active users, up from 140 million the last time it shared that kind of numbers (on 21 March 2012, when it turned 6 years old). That’s a more-than-respectable increase of nearly 43 percent in 9 months. It also means that Twitter...

Should Google, Amazon And Others Be Able To Lock Up New Generic Top Level Domains For Their Own Use?

www.techdirt.com
For many years, we've noted that the entire setup of ICANN rolling out new top level domains (TLDs) was a complete joke, often driven by ICANN members who were in positions to be the registrars and registers for those new domains. Thus, all they seemed to do was create money...

.Rip .Off: Highlights From The Top-Level Domain Scrum

www.techdirt.com
The whole ICANN process for creating generic top level domains (gTLDs) has clearly been designed to allow certain groups to make a ton of money by basically pressuring individuals and companies to snap up more domains they don't need. The whole thing has appeared impossibly corrupt from the very beginning....
