Brandon - I'm in San Francisco for VMworld and yet Google Latitude kept showing me in Anaheim. For others, they appear in Beijing, China. That was all :)

Engineers at Dell must be on a Fast and Furious kick too! They've clearly decided to live life a quarter-mile at a time, and swaddled their XPS 13 with carbon fiber.

Wow, +Marissa Mayer just became CEO of Yahoo. HUGE news!

Some more thoughts on Marissa Mayer's new CEO job. FINALLY Silicon Valley has a woman in a CEO role that we can be proud of. The other female CEOs simply are not geeky enough to bring innovation to the world. They were business types.

Marissa is a true geek. She codes. When you visit her home she has artwork around that she's coded. No other CEO is like her. None.

This is a very cool choice.

But she does face huge problems at Yahoo. That company has been abused by its leaders for so long and has lost so much talent. That said, one thing I watch is who would join a new leader. I've been at several events and have seen first hand the people that Marissa inspires. She'll probably bring in her own innovation team that will be world class pretty quickly. This will be an innovation shock to Yahoo that's definitely needed. 

I was just telling my boss, a woman, that I'm tired of how the valley talks about the problem of not enough women in engineering teams. This is a HUGE move in inspiring more women to join engineering ranks and learn to code. It's so good for Silicon Valley that we are pushing engineers to the top ranks again.

Two weeks ago I was talking with Marc Andreessen and he said that Silicon Valley works best when it's an innovation machine. This gives me great hope for the future of the valley and for Yahoo.
Yahoo has named Marissa Mayer, a longtime Google executive, as its new CEO.

The 5 keyboard shortcut habits of highly effective Google+ users.

+Vic Gundotra tossed out a great tip recently, which is that the / key brings you to the top of the page when you're using Google+. It's helpful because we all find ourselves 10 pages down on the stream, but to post you need to get to the top. Using / is a great habit.

What you should also know about the / tip is that it's technically the command to launch a search -- it puts the select cursor in the Search box and brings you to the top of the page.

You've seen the long lists of keyboard shortcuts for Google+. Most people don't take the time or make the effort to use them habitually. It's a lot to memorize.

But nearly all the value of G+ keyboard shortcuts can be found in just five of them.

By getting in the habit of using these five, you can make using Google+ a LOT faster and easier.

Here they are:

Microsoft is pulling out of CES.
