Not much this week…deal with it…

→ Foursquare Adds Another Search Feature: Check-In History

Today the company launched the latest of several search features that continue to position Foursquare firmly as a formal local search engine: a fully searchable history page where users can review their entire check-in history, including photos, tips and who else was there.

This goes along with my thoughts a few days ago about Twitter search history. I understand for Twitter the past is not their focus but as it appears Foursquare shows how it should be done.

Facebook urges users to share organ-donor status

Starting today, users can add donor plans to their profile, just like they already note a hometown or alma mater, Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, said on a blog post. There will also be a link to the official donor registry, the Menlo Park, California-based company said.

Nice initiative but does EVERYTHING about us have to published on profiles?


I’ll conclude with this: If you read The New York Times arti­cle and found your­self outraged at Apple, take a step back and real­ize that being angry at Apple does noth­ing here. Instead focus that anger toward elect­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives — at all lev­els of gov­ern­ment — who are not beholden to cor­po­rate inter­ests. That’s where the real change will come from.

That article mentions Apple 92 times, Microsoft 3 times, Google 6 times. Same case as previous Times/Apple Exposé’s. I’m no money man but I’m sure all these large companies do their best to sidestep any taxes they can.

→ The Brooklyn Nets: I Call Technical Foul

Whether Jay Z opened up Adobe Illustrator and set the type on a curve himself or not remains a mystery but one thing is for sure: the logo family is technically worthless and embarrassing.

Don’t really have much of an opinion on the Brooklyn Nets new logo but I thought that line was rather humorous.

Go right (YouTube)

this is the best video ever.

If you watch this and feel nothing, you cannot feel. Awesome video simple concept and anything with a reminder of the epic Game Over screen from Zelda 2 gets a thumbs up from me.

    Businesses do not pay taxes, they pass it on to the consumer in higher prices. It is just a form of indirect tax on the consumer.
