This week’s interesting links from my RSS feeds:
Individuals fighting a "System"
- 33 GB of Scientific Papers uploaded to Pirate Bay as a torrent – apparently in response to earlier indictment of Aaron Schwartz in felony charges for downloading 4.8 million papers from the academic journal database, JSTOR.
- ‘Anonymous’ hackers to FBI: There is nothing you can do to stop us.
Other Tech News
- The new Top level domains are only going to cause more trademark issues, says Esther Dyson, who was founding chairwoman of ICANN.
- Indian Government blocks leading file-sharing services (yes, including RapidShare, HotFile, MegaUpload etc).
- Google demos search by image. Watch this. This is going to result in some very interesting applications.
- Faking taken to the extreme: An entire fake apple store in China.
- NotionInk Weathers The Storm, plans on releasing the Adam 2 Android tablet in December. Several months back, I wrote about this. I was eagerly waiting to buy one. Good that I didn’t. They had a good product and took very long to release. They failed to capitalize on their software fixing Android to run on tablets – much before Honeycomb was out. Till date, they donot have Honeycomb build yet. While I didn’t like all the negative publicity that CrunchGear meted out to them, they are right on total failure of NI’s marketing.
- MIT, Harvard use nanotechnology to monitor single living cell in real-time. A nanosensor that attaches to surface of a cell – much like a virus ? what next ?
