Babyface and Clapton:
Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins collide going for the same ground ball, leading to an unearned run by the Mets. Bah.
Simon Rosenberg on what Bill Clinton said about Medicare:
I know times are tough but I’ve only gotten three contributions so far.
Just like public TV and radio, bloggers count on your support to make it through these tough times. If you value what I do here, and you want to support independent analysis of political news, please show your support by making a donation.
As always, thanks.
NYTimes tech columnist David Pogue, in the news last week for domestic violence reported between him and the wife he’s divorcing, is back in the news for dating the VP at a PR firm that represents many of the companies whose products he reviews.
But of course the Times isn’t at all susceptible to conflicts of interest (just ask Judy Miller!) so I’m sure it’ll be fine.
I love the Muppets. I wish they’d bring the TV show back:
I might have mentioned before that I have an idea for a home improvement product with real potential, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to market it. (A lawyer friend even wrote up a non-disclosure agreement for me so I could shop the idea around.)
However, this morning I talked to my old boss, the management consultant. He told me to stay away from those patent companies (“They’re all crooks”) and that no major company will entertain ideas from outsiders because they don’t know what their own people might have in the pipeline, and they don’t want the potential legal exposure. But he does know someone in a related industry “as honest as the day is long” who might be willing to offer some direction, and that he would call him next week.
So who knows? I’ve done patent searches, I can’t find anything like this. I’ve seen a commercial product that’s somewhat similar, but not the same.
