True Patriot: Volume 2 hits Kickstarter, go get your Canadian comics cool on!

One of the bright (northern) lights of Kickstarter for me recently was True Patriot, a Canadian comic book spearheaded by J. Torres. I saw it. I backed it. He shipped it. I got it. And I enjoyed the heck out of it. It worked out well for all involved, in fact, and so much so that Volume 2 is now on the way. You can back it a little and get a PDF copy perfect for reading on your iPad, or you can back it a lot and get a real-world book (you can even back it all the way and get original art). This, to me, is Kickstarter done right. It supports the arts, enables projects that would otherwise be improbable or impossible, and it nets me more great stuff. Win/win. I loved Volume 1, I'm in on Volume to, so check out True Patriot on Kickstarter now, and if you like it, back it.

Dogfight review: The war between Apple and Google gets personal

Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War and Started a Revolution by Fred Vogelstein is a tale of two companies, two of the most important of the current era, how they both started working on phone projects, and how it not only destroyed their friendships, but eventually the careers of many involved. Much of it is already well known. Google, worried that Microsoft would dominate phones the way they had desktops, and shut them down the way Netscape had been shut down, bought Andy Rubin's company, Android, and set about making a Windows Mobile/BlackBerry/Nokia communicator competitor. Apple, meanwhile adapted their stalled tablet project into the iPhone. And that's when it gets interesting...
