Rapidly growing online hangout Facebook Inc. is luring one of Google Inc.’s top advertising executives to be its new chief operating officer.
“Scandal you say?” Yeah, pretty much. The internet community has been in a building uproar over the controversial Facebook ad beacon system. A system that would completely compromise your security and privacy without you knowing. Facebook & it’s CEO Mark zuckerberg have publicly conceded deafeat… “We’ve made a lot of mistakes building this feature, but we’ve made even more with how we’ve handled them,” Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook’s blog. “We simply did a bad job with this release, and I apologize for it.” aka “The other day I was thinking there is no such thing as bad pr, now, i kind of see it as, “We tried to trick you and take our money and that kept pissing you off and we thought it would like go away, but you kept yelling at us through the door like in that After the Rain video.” Read the rest of this entry »
Yup, iSaid it….and its true. Here it is Halloween weekend in 2007 and the best dressed costume of the year came from Cupertino. Leopard (OS X) is nothing special. At. All. iBlogged some digg crap calling it a “tipping point” dang, i’ve seen Malcolm Gladwell speak live, even met the man and i am willing to bet he IS NOT considering this marginal OS upgrade a “tipping point.” Or even gives a crap at all. iF Anything it gives MSFT time to kick the sh*t out of Apple again. Sure they got the momentum, SJ (Steve Jobs) will retire within this time frame. He came, he saw, he kicked f”ning ass. But Bill Gates did well too, they both did, and after Leopard, iPhone, iPod and the 45 nm paradigm shift has occured… iPredict Steve will retire. He should in my opinion, obviously he can do whatever he wants forever, he started Apple, he revived it, he made the keypad on my MBP glow, i owe him a foot massage and as awkward as that would be, more awkward still would for Steve to keep, “innovating.” Zaxxon high score reached. Time up. Not “game over…” Anything goes in bidness, but really, for this round, “time up.” Aside from a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, endorsed motor oil, or personal Hallmark division i don’t know what else the man can do, b/c he HAS DONE EVERYTHING.

It’s been the buzz of the blogosphere for last few months – the much-awaited launching of a Google mobile phone – with industry watchers haunting over incessant hearsays and supposedly leaked effigies of the legendary phone.Google has declined to reassert any further plans for the GPhone
But at the moment it looks that the so-called ‘iPhone killer’ could be one of the most hyped non-devices in record.
According to the recent information, the mobile phone Google engineers have spent two years secretly making is really not a cellular phone in any way but an operating system (OS), which is configured to bring all the tech majors’s online goodies comprising its highly productive advertising to mobile users.
Now the world’s most popular search engine is in quest of extending its authority of internet marketing to the mobile phone market.
The company desires to redeem on what it considers as the speedily rising mobile internet advertising market that is comparatively small nowadays.
It is making a mobile phone operating system, which it desires service providers and makers to set up in their phones. The phones cost could even be subsidised by the publicity, which appears on their screens.
A declaration about the growth is projected soon with handset using the latest software available as early as 2008.
At present, mobile phones make use of a range of operating systems to access the internet consisting arrangements from Microsoft and London-based Symbian. The software is assembled into the phones by makers. Google is projected to present its software free without charging phone manufacturers a licensing cost.
Together with the operating system, Google is likely to originate a unique browser for cellular phones and modify some of its MORE.
M/i/Thoughts: iTotally think so. Why would Google get into anything physical ever? Apple did, yea well, it is what they do. And they kicked arse, they aren’t going to be beat there, at least iDon’t thunk so. Google, on the other hand is an advertising company that is screaming to rip itself from your desktop, laptop, and even your tv. Just watch. i 100% think the gPhone is a software that mimics OS X, (it might even be OSX??) and uses a whole lotta grandcentral/visual voicemail on it. Google maps rocks on an iphone right? Maybe that’s because of the gphone software, Maybe Apple will become part of Google, who knows, all iKnow is that Microsoft and Google are frenemies considering Microsoft does well, b/c they own part of Apple. And just watch the gphone is an idea, a cloud, a server in the sky, it is the next operating system that will transform people’s lives again, just don’t tell iLeopard Rar!
Where to start your blog? Facebook? MySpace? A YouTube Video Blog? Hells no. WordPress baby. There is much more functionality on having a wordpress.org self hosted blog, but WordPress.com is truly a great system. AND, unlike blogger, vox, typepad, etc. WordPress is open source. Just like parts of Leopard. So get wth the program and lets make the EFF, W3c, and that important committee that sets internet standards happy and keep it fresh, clean, and open source. Self-less WordPress plug, go go godzilla!

Thunk… Apple’s upcoming release of Mac OS X Leopard could provide a major boost to the company’s bottom line during the fall and could be bolstered even further by a new portable in January, according to a new report by analyst Gene Munster of investment firm Piper Jaffay.
The researcher maintained that Apple was “on track” to release Leopard by the end of October and that its timing could result in a surge of about $240 million to Apple’s calendar fourth quarter results, even if adoption rates were similar to those from Mac OS X Tiger, which launched in April 2005. At the time, 15 percent of Apple’s users bought either Tiger or a Mac preloaded with the software within six weeks of launch — a feat possible due to the Mac maker’s smaller customer base, but still widely believed to be a major accomplishment.
This uptake was expected to be higher as Apple’s overall number of users running Mac OS X had nearly doubled from 12 to 23 million, Munster said. And unlike the launch of Windows Vista in January this year, Mac buyers were less likely to dent sales by waiting to receive the upgrade with a new computer, even as many enthusiasts upgraded or replaced existing systems specifically due to the new features.
“While we do not believe many consumers delay the purchase of a Mac because of Leopard, we expect its new features and updated look to be positive for Mac sales,” the analyst wrote.
Thunk Different… You wont find many Radiohead fans on Facebook who disagree!
