  • When businesses attack…their customers (Social Studies Blog)
    Get Satisfaction is better known these days for providing a platform for companies to “love their customers,” but at times it’s also a channel for consumers to make their voices heard to companies that actively spurn them. Ever since we launched, GS has allowed people to post an issue about any company, whether or not the company has created an official community space.

  • Jolicloud Jolibook review — Engadget
    The Jolicloud Jolibook. Oh yes, it's sounded like a made-up device ever since the pictures of it started to leak out, but the netbook centered around the Jolicloud Linux operating system is indeed a real product. So real that we've been using the Atom N550-powered system over the past few days. Sure, we've gotten looks in public because its cartoon-covered lid, but the £279 ($443) machine isn't meant for "grown-ups" — it's intended for a younger set, or those between the ages o..   show all text

  • Sites With Government Seized Domains Are Moving On, On Twitter
    Last week while everyone was waiting for the COICA bill to move through Congress, the US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency one upped the Attorney General and seized domain names from a group of over 70 copyright infringing websites. A visit to the blacklisted domains now results in the below ominous looking message from Homeland Security. While the graphic is pretty scary, as Market Ticker’s Karl Denninger points out the websites themselves and the servers they run on hav..   show all text

  • Gmail Lite: If You Build It Google, We Will Come
    I’ve seen the future of messaging — it looks a lot like Facebook Messages. More specifically, it looks like the new version of Facebook Messages that the company began rolling out two weeks ago. But I’m not sure that the future is Facebook Messages. At least not for me. Because that’s simply not how I have used Facebook and it’s too hard to switch my patterns now. And that’s why Gmail has a huge opportunity. We need a Gmail Lite.
    At first, I was underwhelmed ..   show all text

  • The Good Old Days
    Stream of consciousness you say? Trying to find something on what used to be called the Internet is now officially a full time job. It’s not so much that various media strategies and hardware devices have carved things up into a tangle. It’s that what passes for interesting has been shorn of a reliable index in the move toward social filtering. We’re not there yet, the message seems to be. Is there a there there we are going to get to? Not clear.

  • How To Say No
    I have the hardest time saying no. Lots of people do. It’s one of those things we do to foil up our lives quite often. Why? Because we hate to disappoint. Because we think it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Because we want to say yes and be more positive. There are lots of things that thwart us from saying no.
    Personally, I’m an avoider. That’s even worse. Because I don’t do well at just saying, “You know, this isn’t going to work.” But that&r..   show all text

  • Can Anything Stop The Facebook Juggernaut?
    So. Facebook. $35 billion valuation; 600 million users; 25% of all US internet traffic — and all that with fewer employees than Google has job openings. The inventor of the World Wide Web recently warned that the web may be endangered by Facebook’s colossal walled garden. A Google engineer was recently paid $3.5 million to not jump ship to work there. Facebook seems an unstoppable juggernaut. And I kind of want them to die.
    Not because of their policies. They’ve been..   show all text

    Since the launch of New Twitter in September, things have been pretty quiet on the new feature front.
