Welcome to the future! Where you can scan your own books page by page thanks to Amazon (http://www.engadget.com/2015/02/03/rip-and-mix-is-fine-but-dont-burn-books/). The future sadly will not include Radio Shack, which may be selling its stores to Sprint (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-02/radioshack-is-said-to-discuss-liquidation-as-part-of-sprint-deal) or Amazon (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-03/amazon-said-to-mull-buying-radioshack-stores-in-retail-expansion) or both. Dan doesn't mind because You-do-it Electronics is still around (http://youdoitelectronics.com). And, truly alas, TUAW will not be around in the future (http://www.tuaw.com/2015/02/03/so-long-and-thanks-for-all-the-fish/) and neither will Joystiq (http://www.joystiq.com/2015/02/03/there-is-no-end/). No sign, however that Daring Fireball is about to go under (http://daringfireball.net). Individually run sites have the benefit of being able to make their own advertising decisions (http://sixcolors.com/post/2014/12/no-other-gatekeeper-but-me/). It's not hard to imagine that AOL might mess up a decision or two as it's still big in the dialup Internet business (http://consumerist.com/2013/08/08/believe-it-or-not-2-58-million-people-still-pay-for-aol-service/). If you miss TUAW, you can find most of them soon at Apple World Today (http://appleworld.today). Apple itself, meanwhile, is rumored to be building a data center in that no-longer-used sapphire manufacturing facility (http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2015/02/02/apple-to-build-data-command-center-in-arizona/). Lex is happy there's a way to make your iOS device's screen even darker (https://medium.com/@searls/how-to-make-your-iphone-dimmer-than-dim-d20fd3bbbb66). He's weird that way.
