Today on Bytemarks Cafe, we discuss how social media impacts politics

cs. Can posts on Facebook or Twitter swing a vote, or have more influence than ads, flyers, or the news?

Bytemarks Cafe is the weekly live, local sci-tech show I do with +Burt Lum on KIPO 89.3FM in Honolulu, but you can listen online. We take calls and Twitter comments, but I'd love to have questions and comments come in through Google+ as well! Any thoughts? Fire away.

It's a BlackBerry Playbook with Amazon juice, and a pretty solid color touchscreen Android tablet for $199. They can leverage their extensive content offerings and cloud storage to create what's probably the best non-iPad tablet out there, right out of the gate.

The 'Silk' browser is a pretty cool differentiator, for sure. They'll sell a ton of 'em. But I actually am more excited by what this new 'top of the line' device did to the rest of the Kindle family. You can now get a basic e-ink Kindle for $79, or a Kindle Touch for $99 ($149 with 3G). Remember the first, ugly, klunky Kindle sold for $399!

Great post by Hawaii's own +Christie Wilcox for Scientific American:

Great post by Hawaii's own +Christie Wilcox for Scientific American:

"Contrary to how it might seem, scientists as a group are highly trusted by Americans. We rank second only to military personnel… How to we build and maintain that trust? We have to communicate better."

The fact that Spotify is going all in with Facebook, requiring a Facebook account to use the service, is troubling. Rdio is planning the same. So I love most of what Joel Resnicow says. If only his own app, which looks promising, didn't also base its 'social' layer on Facebook.

Last night, Chad Hurley tweeted that the new Delicious was live

Still a place to save, share, and tag bookmarks, with an updated look and a new user profile layout. But the new twist is "Stacks," collections of links that get a snazzy multimedia presentation. As pretty as it is, I'm still only interested in the simple, basic purpose the site always had.
