Sony/Toshiba abandon efforts to standardise DVD formats. It's VHS vs Betamax all over again. Looks like Sony has the edge here.

Google finally enters the telecom arena with GoogleTalk - free internet telephony, IM, the works. Available now only for US based Gmail users. Also, they're planning a 3.28 billion dollar public offering soon. Is it my imagination or are these guys slowly becoming evil? Something doesn't fit.

Oh yeah, recommended picks-

WaiterRant - Funny shit.

Wired news - Cool. Very cool.

And that's that. Goodnight.
