Is that even a word?

    <a href="http://daringfireball.net/2010/03/this_apple_htc_patent_thing">John Gruber weighs in</a> on the Apple-vs-HTC lawsuit; if you can't beat 'em, sue 'em. Not surprisingly, <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/146865/2010/03/google_htc.html">Google defend HTC</a> in this particular debacle.

    PatentlyApple says that Apple have been granted a patent for a "<a href="http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2010/03/apple-wins-a-patent-for-an-advanced-battery-recharging-system-more.html">highly advanced battery recharging system</a>".

    Western Digital make some <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/146766/2010/03/wd_harddrive.html">hard drives with cool displays</a> that display information even when the drive is powered down - but we all know that that stuff is powered by unicorn tears, anyway.

    Another one of those crazy, pseudo, it's-like-you're-taking-hardcore-drugs-but-you're-not apps for your iPhone. <a href="http://www.creativeapplications.net/iphone/glory-math-iphone/">And it's about math</a>!

    Steam is Valve's digital distrubution platform for games, and there's a good chance it will be coming to the Mac. <a href="http://www.boingboing.net/2010/03/03/gallery-valve-tease.html">Valve's teaser is nothing short of sheer brilliance</a>.
