icann-logo.jpgThe PowerPage is seeking assistance from someone with experience with ICANN’s Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). If you’re a patent, trademark or IP attorney or have experience with the Policy, kindly get in touch. If you have no idea what this alphabet soup of acronyms mean, pardon the interruption and ignore this post.
However, if you are knowledgeable about the UDRP (or know someone that is) kindly let me know. If you’ve ever asked “How can I give something back to the PowerPage?” or if the PowerPage has ever helped you out with a hot tip, cool deal or a good laugh in the 10 plus years we’ve been publishing, lend a hand.
Thank you,

wmm.jpgTuesday’s announcement of Apple’s US$69 Wireless Mighty Mouse elicited a lot of excitement from the Mac faithful, but I am more of the opinion that it’s about time.
One of the very first criticisms of the original Mighty Mouse when it debuted almost one year ago was the lack of a wireless option. The original Mighty Mouse was a revolutionary step out of the dark ages for Apple as their first mouse that featured more than one button. Like most things from Apple, they took it to a new level by adding four independently programmable buttons “without compromising simplicity for users who prefer just a single-button mouse.”

As the One Laptop per Child project, a nonprofit effort based in Cambridge, MA, nears the completion of its rugged and versatile laptop designed for school children in poor countries, a key component has fallen into place: an efficient, human-powered generator that could make the computer practical for children living in areas without reliable, affordable electricity.

The new generators, which will be field-tested beginning this October, abandon the bulky and inefficient hand-crank design featured on an early mock-up of the laptop in favor of a more compact off-laptop design that uses a pull string to spin a small generator. It was developed by Squid Labs, Emeryville, CA, a design and engineering group whose co-founders include several graduates of MIT’s Media Lab, where the laptop project originated.
