Weeds shoot up through the cracks in the concrete surrounding it and a padlocked chain link fence keeps swimmers away. Eatonville’s town government closed the pool in March 2020 as businesses, government offices and schools shut ...

Did a patent dispute squash Orlando's early-2000s tech industry — or was it all a pipe dream?

Mention patent law at a dinner party and you're likely to see eyes around the table glaze over. But the patent system undergirds modern U.S. technology — everything from software to the physical mechanics that make smartphones work. In the early aughts, a Florida-based company thought it was going to bring the growing technology economy to Orlando. But two decades and two patent lawsuits later, those dreams have all but evaporated.

Welcome to the high-tech fantasy and hair-pulling frustration known as Disney's MagicBand+

Between the record-setting second-quarter revenues recently reported by Central Florida area attractions and the rapidly rising levels of traffic at Orlando International Airport, it seems like our local tourism industry has rebounded at full speed from the pandemic this summer — but one major thing has been missing. While the crowds may be back in full force, with an ever-increasing roster of resurrected live performances to keep them entertained, this summer there's been a noticeable deficit of major new ride debuts. For example, SeaWorld opened its Ice Breaker roller coaster back in February, and has begun teasing a stand-up Surf Coaster for 2023, but its only new draws for the summer were fireworks and food festivals. Likewise, after opening a blockbuster new attraction nearly every summer for the past decade, Universal not only passed on adding anything substantial to its existing parks this season, but, as of this writing, has also been unable to reopen Revenge of the Mummy following its multi-month refurbishment.
