Very interesting Navy recruiting presentation calling MySpace kids an “alien life force” and talking about how the Iraq war has made today’s youth less patriotic and less likely to join the military:

It sure sounds to me that this former iRobot engineer stole iRobot material to form his Robotic FX company, which recently won a $280 mil contract. Admitting to shredding CDs and wiping a hard disk (with the wiping software running as US Marshalls raided his home), plus being followed as he dumped electronic components in a box labeled “iRobot” sounds pretty big to me:

Interesting article about the WiMAX spectrum owned by schools and nonprofits–I didn’t realize that 2/3 of Clearwire’s spectrum was from schools and nonprofits!
