The sales assistants know what the drink is and they have a little button on their cash tills to ring it up. It's cheaper than the other drinks on offer, but it doesn't appear on the menu. Starbucks claims that's because they don't have room on the menu board. Coffee Republic doesn't even have that excuse: there's a blank space with no price where this drink should be listed. It's called the "short cappuccino", and it's smaller, cheaper and better than the smallest size on the menu, the "tall". Pricing battling So what is going on? It's all part of an attempt to ... market research, surveys and trends

Amazon's original Kindle patent could spell trouble for competitors
applied for by Amazon in 2006 has been made public today as a consequence of its being granted, and its language is rather more wide-ranging (and forward-thinking) than we might have expected. Depending on the interpretation, Amazon’s patent may be broad enough to justify a lawsuit over devices like the Nook and Alex , both of which sport a design clearly claimed by Amazon. The relevant language in the patent starts off thus: 5. A handheld electronic device comprising: a first display for presenting visible representations of content, the first display comprising an electronic paper display; and a second display positioned ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
"The Last Airbender" is awkward and unimpressive
"The Last Airbender" is an utterly incompetent attempt at transforming the first season of the hit Nickelodeon cartoon series, "Avatar: The Last Airbender," into an entertaining fantasy epic for the whole family. Writer, director, and producer, M. Night Shyamalan, works with material not his own for the first time since he scripted "Stuart Little" back in 1999. His adaptation of "Avatar" for the big screen essentially selects the most important plot points of the TV show’s first 20 episodes, splices them together through lazy voiceovers and tedious amounts of expository dialogue, and attempts to fit it all in a running ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Based on research, a team of UW industrial design students recently designed a biodegradable keyboard composed mainly of vegetable pulp. The project was just one of 16 creative design solutions that emerged through a recent undergraduate course on whole product design, co-developed by Louise St. Pierre, assistant professor of industrial design, and Ann Thorpe, King County Department of Natural Resources. ...
