Dinosaurs in suits pollute the Earth (link roundup)

Dinosaurs in suits pollute the Earth in an ad campaign by I.D.E.A.S. for The Climate Institute that someone for some reason doesn't want embedded.

And a few more links:

1. On the one hand, it's refreshing that the President can't simply snap his fingers and make such problems disappear. On the other hand, this is a sad statement on the law, political discourse, and rational thought: "law firm Perkins Coie has billed Obama's lobbying organization more than a million dollars while trying to suppress lawsuits over Obama's eligibility to be president." Via.

2. Daniel Lyons savages David Pogue (and his employer the NY Times) for writing reviews of Apple products, while making lots of money on the side writing Mac-user guides.

3. Consumer Reports says generic store brands aren't just pretty good, in many cases they taste better than the brand name. Via.
