Six comments worth reading about iPad

Saturday morning is the best day to read more in depth analysis. I collected six articles that amused me, largely from the HBR blogs (one of the best source of food for thoughts, IMHO). If you, like me, are fascinated by innovation and by the physicality of objects I suggest you to read Apple iPad’s…

Il Corriere della Sera attacca ancora Google

Torna Mucchetti, il giornalista castiga-google del Corriere della Sera, che mischia notizie con un articolo che parte dalla relazione del AGCom per tornare a chiedere  di castigare Google. Il problema sarebbe che Google fattura per pubblicità più delle concessionarie degli editori più forti ma questa quota di raccolta pubblicitaria non sarebbe inclusa nel calcolo della…

iPad DRM endangers our rights

The Free Software Foundation guys are ready to remind us the real threat that iPad furthers: The iPad’s unprecedented use of DRM to control all capabilities of a general purpose computer is a dangerous step backward for computing and for media distribution. Yesterday a group of FSF volunteers set up “Apple Restriction Zones” along the…

This is why i think iPad is revolutionary

I’m following the iPad presentation but until I saw this I wasn’t impressed This makes the iPad a totally new device and suddenly makes OS X and GNU/Linux and Windows well … obsolete. To me this looks like Apple finally pushing away to the oh-so-old desktop metaphor, the mouse, the windows, the folders and all…

Come vincere la burocrazia italiana

In realtà il titolo è ottimistico: con la burocrazia non si vince mai, al massimo si pareggia. Negli ultimi mesi ho avuto modo di frequentare alcune pubbliche amministrazioni italiane e ho ricavato delle lezioni importanti su come ottenere ciò di cui si ha bisogno. Serve, in sintesi, sviluppare empatia e azzerare la fretta. È necessario…

How to sync Mac OS with Funambol (part 3)

I noticed that my posts about using Funambol on Mac part I and part II are two of the most viewed posts on my blog, so I decided to update them with a new tutorial using the official Funambol Mac OS Sync app. Since I was at it I decided to test also Prezi, a…

Why that thing on Nexus One?

I can’t get my head around one feature of Google’s superphone: why did they put that scroll-click-button at the bottom of the phone? Shouldn’t the touch screen be enough to use the phone? Besides, being so close to the bottom edge, can it really be used? If anybody is still thinking that Google wants to…
