How about this one:

A glitch on Blippy caused it to reveal users' credit card numbers on Google searches. Do you feel safe storing your credit card information on websites?

They were done as blogs and then one person puts them all together into one blog and send me a link that that blog. I have not received that link yet. I see that you have yours marked as private still.

Here is my portion including the discussion question (which is up on the AP.net). I would have put it all together, but I don't know how to copy everything including the formatting. Would someone please put it together and notify Linda/Lueda?

You two want to stick with last week's line-up? I think we should try to finish this round-up by early Saturday afternoon so we can get more of the weekend crowd.

Let me know your thoughts.

Gizmodo explains how multitasking works on mobile phones.

HP has purchased Palm. This was the Engadget live blog during the acquisition.

HTML5 killed Flash, not Apple. It just works better and is more efficient on mobile devices.

The beta version of Skyfire 2.0 for Android has been released.

The Nokia E72 can now be purchased in white and comes with a new firmware update (for all E72s).

Motorola has posted a small Quarter 2 profit.

Verizon subscribers can now get their hands on WebOS 1.4.1.1 for Palm.

Android is expected to boost HTC's Quarter 2 sales by a whopping 36 percent.

By next month, Sony should be announcing Android Dragonpoint for TV.

The Sony Dash is now officially on sale.

The HTC Droid Incredible should be shipping very soon.

Microsoft's Kin could possibly be available on a large number of networks, outside of Verizon and Vodafone.

Three new Android phones have appeared in Asia.

Android 2.2 will support Flash.

Nokia says that the new (leaked) N8 has early software and isn't ready for review.

Miscellaneous

Check out Volksvagen's foldable Bik.e electric bicycle.

Japanese scientists have created "elastic water."

The Better Marriage Blanket absorbs farts and saves marriages.

Scientists have discovered a gene that allows a worm named Schmidtea mediterranea to regenerate its head and brain.

Check out this sweet 8-bit arcade guitar.

Find out more about the BattleBots that are competing at the RoboGames.

There is a new Video Games badge for Boy Scouts.
