Business Week article says Facebook execs are selling their shares.
2 interesting things
1. There really isn’t supposed to be a market for this, and VC firms frown upon this. Apparently FB is addressing this internally.
2. The valuation is around $3.5 – $5 billion. That’s way below the $15 billion valuation Microsoft paid.
Interesting image. Searches for VC and PE drop dramitically over the weekends.
So what does get searched for on the weekends?
Oh well. . there’s no way to do this because you can’t get the granuality
I used trends and it gave some interesting glimpes into what people were searching for. Now Google just announced yet another beta product – Insight for Search.
“Today, we’re launching Google Insights for Search, a new product designed with the advertiser in mind. It provides more flexibility and functionality for advertisers and marketers to understand search behavior, and adds some cool new features like a world heat map to graphically display search volume and regional interest.”
Now let’s see what we can do with it…
Hasbro/EA is now fixing the Scrabble application.
I’m all for using the word “Beta” on something that is not complete, but the application was “pre-Alpha” at the most. It was not ready for the scale of users on Facebook.
Beta would typically be updated and bug-fixed, but it would not be completely removed for reworking.
Scrabulous brought Scrabble back to life, but Hasbro had to shut it down it to protect their IP.
This was coming a long time ago, but who would have thought Hasbro and EA (developer of SCRABBLE Beta) would put out such a horrible product.
I won’t be playing until they fix Scrabble or bring back Scrabulous.
If I really need a Scrabulous fix, I can always play on the Scrabulous site.
I’ve been asked by many people about my firefox setup, so here it is.
I use the latest versions where possible and rely on the auto updates from the developers.
Portable Firefox – so I can move it move it when necessary and run off a flash drive
I run the latest version and it does auto updates.
