SeaDragon, an application from Microsoft that extracts the "Deep Zoom" component from Silver Light and enables it on an iPhone, has been released to the Apple Application Store (Wonders never cease!) because the Apple iPhone has a fantastic GPU.

What's very interesting to me about this feature is not the mobile component, but the ajax one.

Apple, Steve Jobs, bow out of MacWorld Expo. This fuels the usual debate on Steve Jobs' health, as usual, and rumors run rampant. What do you think? Sick? Disincentivized?

PLUS: My new favorite iPhone Application: Taxi Magic. Seriously -- how slick is that? When do you usually need a Taxi? When you're most impaired, likely, say perhaps after drinking? One button. Finally, technology for fun and profit.
