Twitter’s new mobile interface, look no SMS! 🙂
NY Times review of ultraportable notebooks.
I put in another two hours with the Zune today, finally got it to say it was synchronizing, but it kept going and going, no indication of progress on the computer or the Zune itself. Finally after about an hour I unplugged it, no changes, none of my songs or podcasts are there.
Lots of stories this morning on Techmeme saying that a Microsoft and Yahoo merger is coming soon.
What would this get Microsoft? An exit for Yahoo’s founders?
Scott Rosenberg: “Seven years from now Yahoo will be as much of a shell as AOL is today.”
WSJ: “The merger discussions are no longer active.”
Brier Dudley: “The New York Post owes everyone a good follow-up story.”
Om Malik: “Now that Web 2.0 is growing up, scale no longer matters. Even tiny businesses can go global.”
There’s a yin to Om’s yang — not only do companies go global easily, their customers do too.
Now we all have much better information, when we need it, to make a decision about who to do business with.
Marketwatch: “Eateries see reviewers at every table.”
Businesses that really think of the customer will be rewarded, and those that fake it, will fail to compete.
If you don’t want your customers to find out that you mistreat customers, then don’t mistreat customers.
Don’t expect them to suffer sliently. That worked in the last century, it doesn’t work in this one.
