User experiences from different ends of the spectrum: The Playstation 2 Taiko drumming game Took roughly 3 minutes to install, which mainly involved figuring out which plastic pieces at the base of the drum fit together... Happily banging away on the drum in no time... Or, there's the webcam, which requires port changes, and opening the wireless router to allow access from the Internet to see the results.. I should be done with that, in, oh, about 3 hours :)

Useful post on some security stuff, if you've ever wondered what would improve your Internet experience. Installed Spyware Doctor today, it seems to have done a nice job speeding up the browsing process.

The Geico decision has interesting ramifications. This quote from the judge ""There is no evidence that that activity alone causes confusion, " Brinkema said" seems misguided. Lots of ads for other insurers when you search on Geico?? You have to kind of squirm when you hear that. If the keyword is "insurance", sure, but Geico?? It does seem pretty clear what people are searching for when they enter that term in. Be interesting to see what happens next.

Interesting post from Kareem. He works at ESPN and notes the increasing use of RSS feeds. Especially by folks who find espn.com to busy. I've found myself subconsciously navigating away from it, due to page load time, and occasionally the video that pops up on ESPN motion. Plus, with RSS I can see the columnists that I'm interested in. I can still see a few ads in an RSS reader, but many fewer than I would see at the site. Interesting dilema in the e-marketing world, figuring out how to handle that. I'm sure, somewhere on the site, there's a "light" version, but I've never stumbled across it.
