  • Scoble opens a can of whupass on Google for Eventsgate

    Google didn’t really think through the new Google+ Events feature when it rolled it out last week. Google also seems not to have actually tested it with real people either because when users started playing with it and flooding Google+ streams with invitations, events apparently started popping up in recipients’ Google Calendar.

  • Microsoft says to beware of the Googlighting Stranger

    Sometimes its a good thing not to have competitive advertising. Wow, this is a hectic ad that doesn’t pull punches. The new, edgier and more pissed off Microsoft.
