"And I've become, like, such a slave to the GPS, I just follow it like I'm a robot. And I'm following it..."

"... and at one point, my dad's in the backseat. My mom's sitting next to me in the front seat. And at one point, my dad said, like, where are you going? Like, why are you going this way? And I don't even know exactly where I was. I think it had taken me to the Cross Island, and then an exit in Queens. And he was like, why are you going this way? And I was like, the GPS says-- I'm just following the GPS-- (LAUGHING) like I always do. And then it told me to make a left on Broadway in Queens. I ma...

An Apple Store in Manhattan. Mike Segar/Reuters Former Apple employee Ashley Gjovik filed new complaints against the tech giant Tuesday. She alleges that Apple's anti-leak stance and strict employee handbook violates US labor laws.

En Banc Petition: Counting to Two Alice Style

by Dennis Crouch Apple Inc. v. Universal Secure Registry LLC, Docket No. 20-01223 (Fed. Cir. 2021) In August, the Federal Circuit sided with Apple and affirmed the district court determination that USR’s asserted claims were all directed to abstract ideas — and thus ineligible under 35 U.S.C. § 101. When I first wrote about the original decision, I noted the high correlation between the two steps of Alice: “if a claim fails step one, it usually fails step two as well.”  However, this particular ...

"Instead of trying to carpet the world, put on slippers."

Said a commenter, at WaPo, on an "Ask Amy" column about a letter from a woman who wanted another woman's husband to stop talking so much and so obnoxiously on Facebook. The larger issue is the way people expect the wife to control her husband and think it's a wife's job to be an intermediary on their behalf. It's always the woman's job to tend to social harmony. A secondary issue is that people who are unhappy with interactions occurring on Facebook don't seem to realize you can just click a but...

[Reuters] * The people whose life spans will presumably overlap with the heavy consequences of global warming have a flavor of existential dread that's being called "eco-anxiety."

How do we attribute value to an NFT?

How do we attribute value to an NFT? We can analyze this question from a number of perspectives. To start, we could draw a line of demarcation between categories of possessions that exist physically and those that exist intangibly. One intuitively understands how to value tangible things. This is often tied to the item’s usefulness. For example, a car has value because it transports. A knife is useful for cutting. A pen enables writing. We move out one level of abstraction and see that pieces of...
