This and That

According to a report on a speech by Schmidt found at ReadWriteWeb here:

Google CEO Eric Schmidt envisions a radically changed internet five years from now: dominated by Chinese-language and social media content, delivered over super-fast bandwidth in real time.

Barnes & Noble may have a tiny (read: huge) problem with their Nook design. They're being sued by Spring Design, a company which just released their own e-reader called Alex. They're claiming they have a paper trail leading all the way to the top indicating that Barnes & Noble stole their designs after engaging in proprietary discussions to release something together.

Uh-oh. If they're successful in their lawsuit, Spring Design may cause serious financial and "public relations" issues for Barnes & Noble--deservedly so if the allegations are true.

Okay, I may actually cry if I decide I need to boycott Barnes & Noble. Boycotting Wal-Mart has never been a problem, but a bookstore?? AAK!
