Gmail takes image loading out of users’ hands – here’s how to take it back | Naked Security
"That ought to mess up marketers' "open rates" and prevent confirmation that your email address is active, right? Nope, it won't help matters at all. As a Google spokesperson acknowledged when CNET asked, senders can simply use a unique image URL per recipient. Instead of requesting one image from the sender and caching it, Google would have to ask for each unique URL. This ought to make email open-rate tracking even more accurate than it is now because, thanks to this update, every email that's opened will automatically download images."

Amazon Offering E-Book Discounts for Print Copies
Amazon MatchBook Now lets you buy a Kindle e-books at a discounted price for print copies already purchased on the site. This is similar to the idea I had where Amazon would charge you for the license to a book and they'd send you the physical copy, the ebook and the audiobook for a single licensing price.

Patent Race: Move Fast or You're Screwed | Inc.com
"U.S. patent law recently switched from a first-to-invent to a first-to-file system. Under the old system, if you could prove--using lab notes and witness testimony--you were the first to invent a product, you would win the patent. Now, patents go to the first entity to file an application. They will also be judged against international inventions, not just those created in the U.S. It's great news--if you have an in-house patent department. If not, you'll have to change your strategy."
