slHurricane Sandy's begun to batter the East Coast, and companies are using the internet to help out. Google has set up a crisis map for people on the East Coast preparing for the storm, which includes weather service alerts, and notifications of evacuation areas. The Red Cross has a family connection page set up, The Weather Channel is streaming live coverage on YouTube, and the New York Times has temporarily waived its paywall, to name a few resources that have cropped up.http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/28/google-has-set-up-a-crisis-map-for-those-preparing-for-hurricane-sandy/

iaIn more weather-related news, Hurricane Sandy has delayed a number of events on the east coast. Google's New York Android event is cancelled because the venue where Google was to do the event is in an evacuation zone. AllThingsD's Dive into Mobile conference is also delayed. Facebook's Manhattan gift event is also delayed. All of those events were to start today and will be rescheduled. http://www.cio.com/article/720137/Hurricane_Sandy_Shuts_Down_Google_s_Android_Event

tmCarbon nanotubes are one hope for smaller and faster computer chips. IBM announced a breakthrough in getting enough nanotubes together to be useful in commercial chips. The new approach uses ion-exchange chemistry that allows controlled placement of nanotubes at two orders of magnitude greater than before, with a density of roughly a billion per square centimeter. This is still lab technology, but a significant step forward.http://www.engadget.com/2012/10/28/ibm-labs-develops-initial-step-towards-commercial-nanotubes/

slApple has sold out of its launch inventory of all models of the iPad Mini, with wifi-only models pushed back two weeks, and LTE models shipping sometime after that. If you're one of the pre-orderers, Amazon thinks you're crazy! The company is running a big ad on its front page saying the Kindle Fire HD offers "much more for much less," and calls out the Mini for having a "lower-resolution display" than the Kindle Fire HD, one measly mono speaker, and all for $329?? Happy cutthroat holiday season, everyone! http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/10/29/apple-sells-out-of-all-ipad-mini-models-as-amazon-pans-its-price

slRemember Paul Ceglia, the man who claimed he rightfully owned half of Facebook, because back in 2003 Mark Zuckerberg did some programming work for him and somehow they came to a 50/50 agreement of the social network? He's been arrested and charged with doctoring, fabricating, and destroying evidence to support this claim. Ceglia is accused of producing a contract with a fake 1st page, faking emails confirming the deal with Zuckerberg - and that an actual contract found on one of Ceglia's hard drives didn't even reference Facebook.http://www.tgdaily.com/business-and-law-features/67150-man-who-claimed-half-of-facebook-charged-with-fraud

tmWant to sell that used phone or computer? Better check where it was constructed. If the US Supreme Court rules in favor of John Wiley and Sons against Supap Kirtsaeng today, it could become illegal in the US to resell anything manufactured outside the US. The "First sale" doctrine allows you to re-sell used items, but this case attempts to squash that right when importing goods. The case pertains to 'greay market' importation of textbooks, but a broad opinion could have other repercussions, especially for businesses like eBay and Amazon.http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2012/10/a-supreme-court-clash-could-change-what-ownership-means/

iaYou can now purchase light bulbs at Apple stores. The Phillips Hue system is a set of three LED light bulbs and a device that connects to your router so you can control your lights from an app. The Hue system allows you to set light profiles and can even copy a color from a photo. It's not cheap - the starter pack costs $200 and is available exclusively at Apple stores. http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2220462/philips-web-enabled-led-home-lightbulbs-hit-apple-stores

How a Supreme Court ruling may stop you from reselling just about anything
http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2012/10/a-supreme-court-clash-could-change-what-ownership-means/

.

- John Wiley and Sons, the textbook publisher, is suing Supap Kirtsaeng, a student-entrepreneur who built a small business importing and selling textbooks.
- content companies want to knock out the "first sale" doctrine on goods made abroad. Since most consumer electronics are manufactured outside the US and include copyrighted software in it, a loss for Kirtsaeng would mean copyright owners could tax, or even shut down, resales of everything from books to DVDs to cellphones.
FIRST SALE: the rule that allows owners to resell, lend out, or give away copyrighted goods without interference. Along with fair use, it's the most important limitation on copyright. 
-Without "first sale" doctrine in place, content companies would be allowed to control use of their goods forever.
- trouble starts in 90s with Amazons, etc. we could get price info about goods being sold overseas. identical or good-enough products were often being offered for prices much lower than the products being hawked in the US.
- sometimes it's cheaper book paper, stuff that students don't care about. A biochemistry text was $146.15 on the American Amazon site, but sold on the UK site for a mere $63.48, plus $8.05 shipping, one student found.
ON KIRSTSAENG'S SIDE: eBay, brick-and-mortar music and game retailers, and Goodwill—all concerned they may lose their right to freely sell used goods. Even libraries are concerned their right to lend out books bought abroad could be inhibited.
EBAY LAWYER: "This case is an attempt by some brands and manufacturers to manipulate copyright law, to control the distribution and pricing of legitimate, authentic goods," said eBay's top policy lawyer, Hillary Brill. "When an American purchases an authentic item, he shouldn't have to ask permission from the manufacturer to do with it what he wants."
OPPOSERS: movie and music industries, software companies, and other book publishers. Those companies argue differential pricing schemes are vital to their success, and should be enforced by US courts.
PAST CASES: a 1998 Supreme Court case called Quality King, the high court found that copyright owners couldn't control the re-importation of goods. They were limited by the "first sale" doctrine, which meant the rights held in a particular copy of a work expired once it was sold or given away.
KIRTSAENG HAS LOST ALREADY: Wiley and Sons sued Kirtsaeng in 2008. Kirtsaeng's lawyer was unable to get the case thrown out on "first sale" grounds. jury found Kirtsaeng guilty of infringing copyrights in eight books he had sold, and he was ordered to pay $600,000 in damages—$75,000 per book. He appealed, but a panel of judges ruled 2-1 in the publishers' favor.

Amazon compares Kindle Fire HD to iPad mini, forgets some key specs
http://www.tuaw.com/2012/10/29/amazon-compares-kindle-fire-hd-to-ipad-mini-forgets-some-key-sp/

.

- Amazon's coming out swinging
- On the front page of Amazon.com is an ad for the Kindle HD comparing it to the iPad mini
- The ad uses a Gizmodo quote "...your [Apple's] 7.9-inch tablet has far fewer pixels than the competing 7-inch tablets! You're cramming a worse screen in there, charging more, and accusing others of compromise? Ballsy."
- Also shows areas where the Kindle Fire HD shines compared to the iPad mini. TUAW looked at some things that the iPad mini does better than the Kindle Fire HD

Q: Spec for spec - which is the better tablet?
- Amazon spokesperson Drew Herdener told AllThingsD that Wednesday "was the $199 Kindle Fire HD's biggest day of sales since launch and up 3x week over week" (Oct 24th, day after iPad mini announcement)

- If you try to order an iPad mini, you'll find that all iPad mini models will ship in two weeks.
