What is the right snarky nickname for Google's $12.5B bid for Motorola? Googorola, Motoogle and ScrewYouApple, among the choices!

Amongst ourselves? You started the conversation. Why walk away? ;-)

I'm still waiting for Amazon to let us remove apps that were downloaded from their app store.. Maybe this will speed things up?

Introduction

Kara Swisher is the Co-Executive Editor of AllThingsD.com, a tech and media news site.

She started covering digital issues for The Wall Street Journal’s San Francisco bureau in 1997. Her column BoomTown originally appeared on the front page of the Marketplace section and also online at WSJ.com.

Previously, Ms. Swisher covered breaking news about the Web’s major players and Internet policy issues and also wrote feature articles on technology for the paper. She has also written a weekly column for the Personal Journal on home gadget issues called Home Economics.

With Walt Mossberg, she currently co-produces and co-hosts D: All Things Digital, a major high-tech conference with interviewees such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and many other leading players in the tech and media industries. The gathering is considered one of the leading conferences focused on the convergence of tech and media industries.

Previously, Ms. Swisher worked as a reporter at the Washington Post. She is also the author of “aol.com: How Steve Case Beat Bill Gates, Nailed the Netheads and Made Millions in the War for the Web,” published by Times Business Books in July 1998. The sequel --  “There Must Be a Pony in Here Somewhere: The AOL Time Warner Debacle and the Quest for a Digital Future" -- was published in the fall of 2003 by Crown Business Books.

She is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
