Google Notebook – I told you

with one comment

I'm just into using Google Notebook, and this is almost what I needed and wrote about a month ago.

Capability to highlight portions of a webpage, and then if I bookmark it, and later reopen the page, previously marked portions are highlighted again. This will be a great tool for serious web research!

This is so much more than in spite of lack of tagging.

[Update]- Google Notebook 'should' have been much more than, but its breaking far too often. Right now none of my saved notes are accessible/visible. It's beta, it's free, but still! I expected better. Back to for now.

On TV Advertising

From an article in NYTimes on a patent application filed by Philips in USPTO-

James Boyle, a law professor at Duke University, said that broadcasters offer a program knowing that only a fraction of the audience watches the commercials. Advertisers, he added, buy nothing more than "an option on a probability," and the viewer is no more obligated to watch every commercial than a driver is obligated to read every billboard.
