Remains of the Day: Never forget

Amazon took not just a page from Apple's book, but apparently a whole site. Elsewhere, Intel is telling it like it is, and Jonathan Ive racks up yet another major award. What were the remainders for Thursday, April 18, 2013 saying again?

Amazon's Goodreads Purchase Scuttled Apple Partnership (Wall Street Journal, subscription required)

Sneaksy Bezoses! Before Amazon snapped up Goodreads, the book-recommendation site was apparently on the verge of doing a deal to integrate its content with Apple's iBookstore.

Jonathan Ive (Time)

The man, the myth, the Jony Ive has made this year's incarnation of the Time 100, the magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. That's pretty great, but even better is that the blurb about says "Jony is Obi-Wan. His team are Jedi." And did we mention that write-up was by Bono? Yes, that Bono. Yes. Seriously. What, do you know a lot of other Bonos? No, that was John Bonham. Not Bono. No. No. Bonobos are monkeys. Yes, monkeys. Okay? Okay.
