  • Please Leave Scoble Alone

    1938media captures the spirit (video above) of a week where Robert Scoble took on Facebook and lost, caused a Plaxo Flub then got reinstated and sparked a new debate on data portability. You have to hand it to Robert, there’s rarely a dull moment…well most of his non-live videos aside. He’ll certainly be a handful for Fast Company when he starts there later this month. Read More

  • Obama Surges, Online And Off

  • Crumpler's Regifting Day

    Even though “Seinfeld” has been off the air for over nine years, I still reference it quite a bit. Who doesn’t celebrate Festivus or quietly chant “serenity now”? I find myself telling friends and family, ‘no soup for you’, all the time. Did you know that of the 60 million Seinfeld earned this year most of it came from royalties? “Seinfeld”… Read More

    We’ve heard tales of people buying electronics, getting them home, and opening them just to find, well, not what they’d purchased.

  • Technorati Makes Changes To Blog Rankings. Big Hit For No. 1 Engadget
