Stuff worth noting I missed near the end of the week, as I was traveling:
Blinkx goes public, soars.
Google and Dell taking some flack for approaches to software bundling.
Facebook gets generally positive reviews after its first developer conference. “The anti-Myspace” seems to be the buzz.
Cringely says it’s inevitable: Google will do itself in because there are more good ideas than the company can go after. I’m not convinced. Google may lose some folks to entreprenuerialism, but that’s entirely normal. The NYT covers how Google recruits.
From Ars: The Future of Google Mobile Search.
Bloggers are more connected than journalists. Huh. What if we’re both?
Yahoo testing linking to outside sites on homepage. Firehose, ho!
Microsoft is playing catchup on the web apps side with a big relaunch of Hotmail (now with Live!) today.
Sphere re-orgs its home page around its strength in social news.
CNN making debates available to public. This makes so much sense it’s ridiculous anyone thinks otherwise.
Last week was a big day for news and posts, with several on Friday. I know how many of you actually read on Friday, so to review:
I’m traveling for family reasons today, a few stories worth noting:
Facebook is growing. A lot.
Google might buy DoubleClick after all. But…why? Oh wait, now I know. To push Microsoft to spend even more for it. If Google buys DoubleClick, I’ll eat this post.
Well done, EMI.
Yahoo is testing new approaches in search too.
