Several people have contacted me and informed me that the MiniURL link I
posted for the article on E-Ink in the business section of the Boston
Globe this morning has led them to an adult oriented website. I double
checked this and got a '404 site unavailable' message.
This is a shame because it is an interesting article. You can find it by
visiting www.boston.com and looking in the 'business' section.
Regardless - I apologize for unintentionally linking folks to a
non-professional website and recommend not using MiniURL.
