I have been using Google Code for awhile to find code and projects that others have written. I just recently began looking at it from a developer perspective and I must say that I am impressed with what I see so far.
Yahoo! Pipes allows me to mashup and manipulate content to my heart's desire. The interface might be a little daunting at first but becomes intuitive after awhile. The UI is actually impressive when you consider the enormous amount of power and flexibility the users have at their fingertips when using this tool.
If you visit any page on www.ea.com with the Opera desktop browser you will be refused the page and instead redirected to their mobile site. Inaccurate browser sniffing is so lame! Luckily, Opera will let me "Mask as Firefox" on the ea.com domain and the site works fine. However, this contributes to Firefox getting credit for usage when in reality it is Opera users. Professional work there EA!
I am happy to see users making a statement about what they want, or more accurately, what they don't want. EA has added more restrictive Digital Rights Mangement (DRM) to their games recently. Spore has seen a backlash from its users and as a result the Amazon user rating of the game is 1 star after over 2000 user ratings. Many companies have tried DRM, most notably the music industry with MP3s.
