...and I'm catching up on my blogroll. Two things that popped for me this evening are Brand New, which has a guest editorial write-up about how the brand of American Gladiators was updated for the return to television, and Jan's review of the updated Zune client. I had a chance to work with Jan for a while in the early days of Longhorn. Jan has one of the strongest senses of empathy when it comes to UI design I've seen in many years. It really comes through in his blog, as well as his latest professional efforts.

Finally, Businessweek had a great write-up about the newest technology object of my desire, the Lenovo X300.
