Hi everyone, it has been another super busy day in library land so this will be a really short blog posting – well, for me anyway!

Here’s a link to a CNET article on the new inexpensive Ouya gaming system that is an open system and will allow gamers to play mobile titles on their TVs for only $99 and by “mobile titles” I mean titles for tablets and smartphones that developers can easily tweak to work with this new gaming system.

Here’s the link:

And here’s a link to a second article that discusses how in the near future you may be able to swallow two capsules that will run through your body and relay messages about your heath back to your doctor – which I think is sort of cool!

And this third and final link relays to an article regarding a European Union court decision that actually benefits Google in what I’d call another “right to be forgotten” case – and by that I mean the decision has to do with personal information that Google has obtained online – legally obtained – and I think this is interesting because of the ongoing debate over the right to be forgotten – meaning of course that whatever personal information you put on the web may stay there forever no matter how embarrasing it latter becomes – say college photos on a friend’s Facebook page of you and your friends partying hardy – which aren’t so much fun 10 years later when you get turned down for a job because the company you were applying for a job with didn’t like those photos!
