What Happened To Sony?

Remember when Sony was the gold standard of electronics? Well, those days are obviously gone. Earnings are down 94%. Wow. Part of that stems from the laptop battery problems, but an under-rated portion of that is the lack of clear innovation at Sony for the past several years. Sony still doesn’t seem to think the […]

Wired on Reporter

Wired’s blog Monkey Bites has a small mention on reporter in response to a comment I left the other day. Very cool to get a little publicity for the tool. Those reports really do make a difference. The more reports in the database, the more we know about problems facing users on that wild wild […]

Mission Accomplished?

BusinessWeek has a short post on Firefox, a good (but short) read, my favorite is: …Firefox has anywhere from a 10% to 18% worldwide market share among browser users, depending who is counting, and almost every Web site that matters makes it possible for Firefox users to fully access their pages.

ABCNews […]

Wired Magazine

Just saw this via Asa. Amazing. Congrats to Blake!. This is a giant accomplishment. Wired is not just a geek magazine, but has lots of mainstream readers who read it just because they enjoy technology. Wired’s got a great audience. So this means a lot in terms of promotion. Yea!

Yahoo Homepage on the day after the Election

Well, if this doesn’t show the power of Firefox, nothing ever will. That’s right. Hours after the president announces he won the election, a nice “switch” style article right on the Yahoo homepage. It links to the syndicated feed of this PC World Article (link to PC World Article, because Yahoo links tend to break). […]
