Any fans out there of theories of everything?

I've never been good enough at HEP theory to do more than skim this stuff, but I particularly liked the end of section 5: "The theory has no free parameters. The coupling constants are unified at high energy, and the cosmological constant and masses arise from the vacuum expectation values of the various Higgs fields..." - the guy is simply reeling off desirable features from the GUT ticklist.

I eagerly await the results of some peer review, and about a decade of LHC running. :-)

This article talking about Google's plans (or otherwise) for the upcoming 700MHz spectrum auction in the US has the fantastic line, "Google has hired game-theory specialists to help plot its auction strategy, say people familiar with the matter."

Now, wouldn't it be the best strategy ever if, in its entirety, it consisted of leaking that rumour? :-)
