Stop me if you’ve heard any of this before..
Thought Crime of the Week - Polish Googlebomber faces three years in prison. The problem is having “bomb” in the word “Googlebomb.” They probably thought it was a real bomb, you know, because Polish people are stupid.
Not So Much - Yahoo!’s “Mashup Debate” won’t allow mashing-up.
iPhone Officially, Really Unlocked, for Realz, and for Free - And a nerd war begins.
Like a Cool Mountain Soda - Water so pure, it tastes like strawberries.
Spare a Gigabit, Buddy? - Bandwidth as currency.
How come everybody’s suddenly talking about Dr. Who again these days?
Free McD Goodies! - SMS 2.0, now with McDonald’s ads. This is a fantastic idea.
Prince to sue YouTube - Enigmatic rock star hires the “Web Sheriff” (serious!) in attempt to “reclaim the Internet” from the rest of us and keep it all to himself.
YouTube to sue JewTube - Or someone.
Domain Still Available - MagooTube.com
We’re Rich and We’re Smart and We Live Nearby - High-fallutin’ tech jobs abound in Seattle. Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Amazon all expanding all up in our faces.
MySpace Out, Facebook In - 23% growth in a year is just sad. Sorry Rupert, the dream is over.
Time Suck - If you’re at work, don’t click this. It’s too awesome.
Every Important Invention. Ever. - Wikipedia has the definitive list. For example, did you know that the only two important things that have been invented this century are the self-contained artificial heart and the Scramjet? S’true. If we can invent three more things by the end of the decade, we can stick it to the stupid lame-ass 1990s, and their “World Wide Web.” Get busy.
