NYT (reg req) | A 'Funky A.T.M.' Lets You Pay for Purchases Made Online. Fan-freakin-tastic! I figured this would have to be possible :) Since banks have completely missed a market for debit cards (credit card with zero limit - pay as you go), there's an opportunity for solutions like this to become popular.

Ask Slashdot | Color Printing Without the Inkjet Mess?; don't miss the link to Continuous Flow Printers.

Currently slashdotted, but for future reference: Slashdot Games | Celebrating Bad Game Packaging Art.

The Australian | Police target free email. The Australian Feds are trying to remove the anonymity from webmail accounts; even suggesting a 100-point identification check for internet access and the abolition of free email. The article points out that data havens will always spring up anyway; and I seriously doubt the world (especially the US) is going to pay any attention to Australia's police. "Australia? Isn't that in Europe? Oh wait, no you mean the place with all the crocodiles! Do they have internet there? Wow!"
