Monday Morning Links

Here are a few links to ruin your resolve on Monday morning.

From Nathan Carpenter, a link to the boombox museum, an online history. I thought I'd spend thirty seconds there and wound up reading through the entire site. Amazing detail and great pictures. Here's the link:

From DQ reader Dan Holmes, a bombshell from Microsoft that no one's seemed to notice:
With little fanfare, Microsoft last week revealed it would release a free VoIP app that will let Office users to make free calls on Wi-Fi phones running Windows Mobile software.

That seems like warning shot across the bow of all kinds of companies, but I haven't heard boo about it except for this article. Here's the link:

Finally, from Frank Regan, a link to an interview with Tom Burick of White Box Robotics. Here's an excerpt:

What Tom is trying to do, is not only provide a product that can be sold and used, but define a common platform on which robotics hobbyists and industry alike can experiment on and develop their own custom solutions to meet their own ends.

Very interesting, and here's the link:
