• Speculation Time: Who's The Next CEO Of MySpace?

    The body isn’t cold yet (or even officially pronounced dead), but there is already broad speculation on who may be the next CEO of MySpace. Last night we were handed a list of names by a source close to MySpace parent company News Corp., cloak and dagger style, with a “guarantee” that one of them will be the next CEO.

  • Leaked: LG enV3 VX9200 to have a 3 Megapixel camera

  • Twitter OAuth "Temporarily Disabled", Developers Left Hanging

    Twitter, you need to do a better job at communicating with the developer ecosystem that has been formed around your API for the past couple of years.
