Magic Rights Management for eBooks
I made mention of SiDiM last week in my collection of links, as well as it as an example of one of the reasons I distinctly prefer paper over ebooks.  Eric Hellman goes beyond my feeling of disquiet and actually discusses SiDiM on a broader scale.

Ouya launches for $99; already sold out on Amazon, GameStop
I'm intrigued by this little console, but I'm also not really in the market for any console at this moment.  Either way I will be keeping an eye on it, could be an interesting option for in house video-gaming at the library, or even possibly as circulating hardware.  We circulate e-readers and tablets, that doesn't make a $99 console seem all that unreasonable.  We might need to buy at least a second controller, but I think it would be fun to circulate an Ouya.
