Nissan starts taking reservations for the Leaf on April 20. Paying $99 (refundable if you change your mind) buys you a place in line when Nissan starts building the cars in September. The first cars roll into showrooms in December and will be available in the five markets of the EV Project plus the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles. Nissan plans to offer the car nationwide by the end of 2011.
While publishers regularly offer e-postcards announcing new releases, Jim Gladstone, who wrote The Big Book of Misunderstanding, is taking the concept a step further. He has not only written his own code for an easy-to-send e-card, but also plans to offer the software to other authors later in the year.
The work non-profits do is more crucial than ever, especially as government funding for many social programs plummets and the gap between haves and have-nots widens. But keeping such organizations afloat has also gotten challenging as budgets shrink and donor numbers dwindle. These realities have convinced some insiders that smart data is the secret sauce non-profits need to up their game. And if non-profits get savvier and more effective, donors and participants could benefit, too. When you give to a worthy cause, research shows, your brain gets happy, and committed volunteers enjoy a “helper’s high,” reporting better health and more life satisfaction than non-volunteers.
That was a typical post on Apple message boards Wednesday, as Mac heads trashed Microsoft’s new Windows XP operating system as yet another case of Microsoft repackaging Apple ingenuity and calling it original.
By Friday, the offending link had been removed from the site, but a cached version can be found here. The link in question is a graphic on the right-hand side of the page that reads, “My Utah Search.com.”

Uncle Bob? James continued, “Yeah, I got a call once from a frantic lady asking if I had seen Uncle Bob. I thought she must’ve meant that there was an old guy wandering around the terminal. ‘No,’ she said, ‘Uncle Bob is in a box!’

And yet, when I went home last weekend to visit my family, I was surrounded by Christians and not one of them had any interest in whether anyone else owned a sex toy, looked at porn or took birth control.
Maloney: Once again, both of you, stop saying “intellectual property.” It’s not a valid concept.
What if the TI voices exist for the same reason? Maybe my father, and the thousands of people who have bonded over their self-perceived status as targeted individuals, are a kind of indirect warning system experiencing a kind of collective dream—canaries in the digital coal mine. We dismiss them as out of touch with reality. Yet we have all become the objects of monitoring and manipulation eroding the core of what makes us human: our free will.
Mazzanoble: That is probably a better question for him as he’s been a gamer all his life. The fact that I have ever even seen a d20 is a huge bonus as far as he’s concerned. I think it’s important in a relationship for each person to have their own interests but something like gaming can be really good for couples. Gamers are passionate people and gaming can take up a considerable amount of time, so it’s really nice to have your significant other sit next to you at the table. Consider it bonding. While I don’t think it’s appropriate to work out your issues “in game,” it is kind of nice to have that outlet. Maybe I don’t care about wet towels on the new duvet but my character sure does. Bam!
