The Null Device

Bad news roundup: It looks like there is likely to be war in the Middle East. This probably means that Israel will wipe the floor with the various Arab states in a few days and the situation will cool down to a simmering rancor, with all recent gains more than undone. Unless some Arab state lobs a nuke at Israel, in which case things look like getting really bad. Meanwhile, Europe is on the verge of adopting US-style software patents, which could all but give a few giant multinationals with cross-licensed portfolios a monopoly on innovation.
