Google went nuts for April Fool’s Day. This is hysterical.
They “invented” CADIE: Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity.
CADIE Technical Specs
CADIE YouTube Page
Basically it is an Artificial Intelligence that will:
Respond to your email
Search your brain
Write your documents
Write your code
Add 3D to your browser
Show you ocean floor terrain maps
Tell you where to go
Most likely all or some of these links will be time sensitive, meaning that if you read them on any day other than April 1st you won't see what I'm referring to.

"Resisting the Kindle" is article one in a series of two articles on The Atlantic.com, presenting the Pros and Cons of the Amazon Kindle.
This article presents the "against" argument and I think it is completely flawed. To be honest I think the author was stretching for a thesis simply to be part of a series of two articles examining the pros and cons of the Kindle.
"In Defense of the Kindle" is part two of the series which presents the "pro" or "in favor of" position on the device.
I think you could do away with almost the entire article and only read the response to the original article's discussion of Wallace Stevens and the loss of historical context at risk with the discontinued regular use of Bartlett's Quotations and it still pwns.
Please discuss. I would love to hear feedback on this.

Very informative. I came upon it while looking for the origin of the expression "all-singing, all-dancing".
