- Review: Jono reviews the Roku 2, mass-market tv streaming device. Is it any good?
- Open-source phone platforms: Jolla, Ubuntu, and Firefox OS. What is success? Will these platforms get anywhere? Are Android and iOS ripe for unseating?
- Interview: Jeff Atwood talks about Discourse, the modern forum system, and why it’s an improvement over the horror that is web forums currently. You can ask follow-up questions which Jeff has agreed to answer at Ask Your Questions: Jeff Atwood, founder of Discourse
