Luis: While it would be nice for it to be "open hardware" already, I wonder how long until someone hacks the Kindle to run Gutenburg project texts. Because it runs Wikipedia, I can't imagine it would be hard to do. However, it's very understandable that it would be the antithesis of Amazon's business model to provide quality free content and furthermore would be rude to use the wireless link(supported by buying items) to load Free content on the device. On the other hand, the USB link is fair game. ;)

Gmail encryption/signing

I spoke too soon as this signed email does not verify correctly. Google why can't we get this right?

GMail part deux

I haven't noticed a lot of changes with the new GMail interface that has been recently delivered, which for the most part is a decidedly good thing. However, I decided to test out Seahorse's Epiphany plugin with the new plain text entry box and was delighted when my test email was delivered and the signature was good and the decryption didn't have a problem with the word wrapping. This was a major thorn in my side; preventing me from using signatures with my sent mail. Thank you to whichever brave Googler purposefully or inadvertently fixed this featurebug.

Also, I would like to join the band wagon in thanking the crowd over at Nokia and Maemo for accepting my application for a discounted N810. It will probably lead to an increase in my Verizon tax, but will be worth it.
