Daring Fireball: Claim Chowder: HomePod Touchscreen
Yours truly in June, after first seeing HomePod:

HomePod has a touchscreen on top.

Clearly, we now know [that’s wrong]. Paul Kafasis called me out on this during the most recent episode of The Talk Show, and it’s clear that I was wrong. It certainly is a touch panel, and it does light up and animate, but whatever you want call the part that lights up and animates, it’s not a screen in the sense of being a display that can render arbitrary pixels. The “+” and “-” buttons are hardware touch buttons, and the Siri animation is the only thing that can be shown in the middle.

Google’s big break: How Bill Gross’ GoTo.com inspired the AdWords business model.
Within a year, it was clear to many in Silicon Valley that Google’s algorithm was superior to those of more established search engines like AltaVista and Inktomi, whose software powered HotBot, Yahoo, and several other major Web portals.

The conventional wisdom at the time was that there wasn’t much money in search—the real revenue came from keeping people on your own pages, where they could see your banner ads.

Google had about 50 employees at the time and was starting to catch on with Internet users, but it was bleeding cash

That’s when Page and Brin started to take a closer look at GoTo.com, a rival search engine that was beginning to reap huge revenues with a novel advertising model. GoTo.com had been founded by a serial entrepreneur named Bill Gross in February 1998, seven months before Google.

Rather than build his own search engine from scratch, Gross took Inktomi’s engine and introduced a twist: paid search. Like the way companies bought ads in the Yellow Pages, websites could pay for top placement on the GoTo.com results page for a given keyword.

advertisers would pay only when people actually clicked on their ads

so that more desirable keywords would command higher prices, while less common keywords could be had for as little as a penny per click. As a search engine, GoTo.com had nothing on Google. But as a way of making money on searches, it was ingenious.

“The whole point of Internet advertising, I thought, was accountability,” Gross says. “You could measure it, unlike with print ads. But here was everyone still selling ads the old way: buy a bunch of impressions, cross your fingers, and hope it turns out well.”

Meanwhile, GoTo.com was taking off. It went public in June 1999, and in September 2000 it landed a coveted deal to syndicate its paid search results on AOL.

changed its name to Overture in 2001 and focused exclusively on running its ad network.

Soon after, Page and Brin met with Gross at a TED Conference, and Gross suggested a merger. No thanks, the Googlers told him.

And they did. In 2002 Google launched its own pay-per-click, auction-based search-advertising product, called AdWords Select. It was instant gold, and Google soon dropped the original AdWords altogether.

Did Google steal Overture’s idea? Not really, says Gross. “We didn’t patent the idea. So if we don’t patent it, they can copy it.” Yet Gross is convinced the concept of a cost-per-click, auction-based search-advertising system would have been patentable, in retrospect.

When It Snows, Chicago Police Ticket Minority Communities More | WBEZ
"Drivers and property owners in just a few South Side neighborhoods get hit with a disproportionate number of winter-related tickets.

That’s the finding of a WBEZ analysis of city data, which also indicates that some of the weather-related ticketing done by cops may run askance of the city’s snow plan and the Chicago Police Department’s directives."
