Who Is Pissed At Nokia??

Nokia has conceded that Symbian is dead. Fifteen hundred workers walked off the job, as the software that runs the phones has been ceded to Microsoft in a attempt to ward off market erosion to Android.

The Devil Made Me Do It.

Google has pwnd Bing, Microsoft’s internet search engine, and its team and clearly demonstrated that Microsoft is using information about Google’s search engine based on data gathered through the Bing Toolbar.

After looking at the results provided by Google, Bing’s search engine produced the same responses to nonsensical queries. This prompted Google to prove that Bing was watching what people searched for on Google. Essentially, Bing collected data on the sites people selected from Google’s results and then used it to improve its own search listings. Microsoft later claimed that Google’s findings were rigged and manipulated through the use of click fraud.

After paying for a piece of hardware are consumers going to be frustrated by their inability to use the device in the manner in which they see fit? Recently Apple rejected Sony’s iPhone application, which would have allowed people to buy and read e-books bought from the Sony Reader Store and thereby compete with Apple’s iTunes offering.

Applications developers, including Sony, are being told that they can no longer sell content, like e-books, within their applications, or let customers have access to purchases they have made outside the App Store, something which it didn’t use to do.

Mark Zuckerberg on SNL

Jesse Eisenberg, the actor who played Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” hosted “SNL” this Saturday. Eisenberg was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor so this is a high-profile “SNL” hosting appearance. The team behind the show approached Zuckerberg about showing up alongside Eisenberg as a surprise. Zuckerberg, who was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year in 2010 appeared to express he has a sense of humor. A triple dose of Zuckerberg is what viewers got, as Oscar nominee/guest host Eisenberg took the stage and was quickly joined by the show’s Zuckerberg impersonator, Andy Samberg. Shortly thereafter walked Mark himself. Mark showed up three times and gave Eisenberg a seemingly heartfelt hug to show all was forgiven.
