Kuler RIA -> Desktop via Dashboard

The folks behind kuler, Adobe’s color-centric rich internet app, are a quietly busy bunch.  Tonight they’ve posted a widget for OS X’s Dashboard (download — 200kb; screenshot).  According to kuler community PM Sami Iwata,
the widget "displays RSS feeds of color themes from kuler… Browse the newest, highest rated, and most popular color themes; search for themes on the kuler site by tag, title, or creator ID; copy hex values from any theme to your clipboard."

Knowing this group, they’ll keep cranking out good stuff.  In the meantime, if you have feedback on the widget, please let the team know via the kuler user forum.

Stupid-fast new printer technology

If haste makes waste, the team motto at Silverbrook Research must be, "Let’s get wasted!!"  Offering "a price/performance ratio that is off the charts" according to Lyra Research, the new Memjet printing technology (video) is many times faster than anything else on the market (60 pages per minute of 1600-dpi, full-color printing).  Somewhere a forest groans; somewhere ink salesmen smile.

These Aussies have apparently been (quietly) going berserk filing patents over the last few years, as described in this profile of the company & founder Kia Silverbrook. The Memjet site has a bit more info on the technology. [Via Jim Pravetz]
