Over the past 30 years, designer, writer and Principal Researcher for Microsoft Research Bill Buxton
has collected input and interactive devices whose designs he found "interesting, useful or important. In the process, he has assembled a good collection of the history of pen computing, pointing devices, touch technologies, as well as an illustration of the nature of how new technologies emerge." This week, he unveiled his collection
at the Computer-Human Interaction conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. An extensive gallery has been posted online with images and notes at The Buxton Collection

David Rees's comic strip Get Your War On
), has been appropriated by Jamba Juice
into an animated Flash video
. Rees, of course, built Get Your War On
using clip art, which makes matters a little trickier. Is Jamba Juice's ad a case of fair use? Or are there enough factors being used here for Rees to have a casus belli? Will we see more advertisements pilfering along these lines?

Think you're in full control of your computer?
Intel has just quietly added one of the necessary components of Microsoft's (and the TCG/TCPA's)
, Palladium, to the PC platform. Some say this is a move against
rampant Chinese software piracy
others think it's a power grab by the content producers.
Left unchecked, content and software producers will
have the final say in how you use your computer, fair use

"You can't copyright anything on the Internet" Retrocrush posted an article written by thier own, to point out the "Worst Sex Scenes Ever" in the movies. Less than 30days later, the british tabloid "The Daily Star" printed an article that seems to have come directly from the site, attributing the source to a (seemingly fictitous) american magazine called "Film". Not only did the Star's news editor make the above quote, but the story was picked up by a wire service, and has seen print in several other online and print publications... Obviously it's not Fair Use. What would happen if reporters came here looking for ideas?
