I've noticed a lot of the blogs I read have introduced a linking blogs feature. Not quite sure how it works, yet, but its supposed to list all the posts that link to that specific post. Sounds pretty cool. Lets see if it works.

I haven't finished reading the post yet, but I've already got my 2 cents to add. I think google would be better off buying/releasing an all-in-one messenger client rather than creating yet another proprietary format.
Even if they wanted to introduce their own IM scheme (hopefully integrated with their other services I already use) then they'd be better off releasing a multi-service client to go with it.
Or, better yet, with the quality of today'sopen sourcee/free multi-service software, they could develop the service, and release an API.
Now that I've finished reading, I feel I should mention that I like Google.
One of the reasons I no longer use Yahoo is the super-simplistic ideology that surrounds the Google site. While the different Yahoo services are “more integrated” I think the result is a much more clutered experiance. I think it would be foolish for google to risk offending their user base by trying to be more like Yahoo.
Simplicty rules. If integration is Yahoo, then I'll settle for divergence.
Rockstar Games gets <CENSORED>
bitched</CENSORED> at by some idiot attorney. Tho say that violent video games breed violent children is insane. If this guy is so upset he doesn't have to buy the game for his kid, but who the <CENSORED> fuck</CENSORED> is he to tell me what I can't buy for myself/my kids. As a lawyer, I'd expect him to be more educated. What a dickhead.
