    On the Apple theme, I think this is a thoughtful piece by an iPhone user who also uses other phones:
    http://www.phonedog.com/2013/02/09/is-apple-their-own-biggest-obstacle/

    A statement he refers to is the Woz last week saying that the iPhone was “a little behind” Samsung. The iPhone interface is looking a bit tired. They did put Jonathan Ive in charge of interface design recently and my guess is he’s going to redo the interface so it’s a lot more Windows Phonish and Apple will be praised loudly for its innovation.

    Lenzner sums it all up with six sad words: “the vestiges of American criminal law.”

    I realize most readers probably have access to WSJ articles but could you please assume not everyone does and give means for access. Either that or perhaps don’t include them.

    The paired articles above by Investing Caffeine and Barron’s are two of the most ridiculous things I have read all morning. (I’m thinking this might have been your point) IC reality train is o hopelessly off the tracks that I don’t even know where to begin (Ok..ok Wade Slome…I’ll leave my money with you…bull market…cheap…buy stocks…got ya). Barron’s speaks to this glorious record amount of corporate cash on hand and ignores the more than offsetting levels of corporate debt..and who the flip is Jeffrey Kleintop with his “long-term rotation from bonds into stocks” what the hell does that mean. It is hysterical that someone with the title of “Chief Market Strategist” could have such a naive understanding of the markets.

  7. Raytheon’s Graphical Object Browser for Tracking People Over Social Networks

    Via: Guardian:

    “…the software – named Riot, or Rapid Information Overlay Technology…”

    “…the Massachusetts-based company has acknowledged the technology was shared with US government and industry as part of a joint research and development effort, in 2010, to help build a national security system capable of analysing “trillions of entities” from cyberspace.

    The power of Riot to harness popular websites for surveillance offers a rare insight into controversial techniques that have attracted interest from intelligence and national security agencies, at the same time prompting civil liberties and online privacy concerns…”
