Too many marketing people don't seem to understand this...
I heard the other day that if someone “Likes” your Facebook business page, they’re over 90% likely to never look at it again. Wow. 90% is a lot! We could assume that’s exaggerated by ½, but 45% is st...

I find it ironic that Apple does everything they can to dispose of Flash, but then require QuickTime to watch videos on their website...

Microsoft doing some good things lately: how Windows 8's picture passwords work #geek
Unlocking a mobile device with gestures isn't new. But Microsoft takes gesture passwords to a whole new level in Windows 8, and has the calculations to prove it.

Correlation may not imply causation, but it sure can help us insinuate it.
Need to prove something you already believe? Statistics are easy: All you need are two graphs and a leading question

Hmm new challenge... people googling web addresses they've been told rather than typing them, then deciding they don't exist because they're not in Google's index...

Interesting note from MySpace Tom
Tom Anderson originally shared:
 
Google+ seems like a "reaction" to Twitter/Facebook. But are you starting to see the ways that Google+ just makes Google a better, more integrated set of services? Google already has top-notch products in key categories--photos, videos, office productivity, blogs, Chrome, Android, maps and (duh) search. Can you start to see/imagine what Google+ does for Gmail? Picassa? Youtube? Not to mention search? The +1 system that Google now has control of (unlike Facebook Likes) can really influence and change the nature of their search.

My original vision for MS was that everything got better when it was social--so I tried to build all the super popular things used on the web (blogs, music, classifieds, events, photos) on top of MySpace's social layer. When Yahoo launched 360, MSN launched Spaces, and Google launched Okrut, I was shakin in my boots. But quickly I saw that it's really hard to layer in social to features after the fact. At MySpace we had the luxury of having social first, and building the products on top of that layer. Then I choked and Facebook realized that vision. ;-)

But Google+ really seems to be primed to make good on that original premise--that everything gets better when its social. And unlike FB, Twitter, or anyone else, Google already has the most advanced set of products. And if I can clearly see where this is headed, then I think what we are getting is a much better Google. Does that kill FB/Twitter? Who cares? I'd use all 3, but more importantly, I'll be using Google products I never used, or use them in new, better ways I never used them before.

Oh yah and I love my Google TV :)
