Flipboard said that it would not continue to evolve Zite and that Flipboard would integrate the technology of Zite into Flipboard.” Sad, sad day. Zite was my favorite iPad random newsgatherer. Flipboard was interesting until I found Zite. Totally bummed over this. Totally.

Consumerist: DropBox Jumps On Forced Arbitration Bandwagon, But Offers Online Opt-Out.

Thank you Dropbox for unburdening consumers of their statutory right to seek legal redress in a court of law! It’s like you read our minds. We’d all much rather be heard by a paid arbitrator in a process that is heavily unbalanced in favor of businesses.
