Rick Santorum's dealing with some family stuff at the moment. Will this become too much to handle if he's president?

Dear Google, we support you airing your dirty laundry in public.

We are a bit surprised by Twitter's comments about Search plus Your World, because they chose not to renew their agreement with us last summer (http://goo.gl/chKwi), and since then we have observed their rel=nofollow instructions.

Are these the type of backdoor battles that will decide much of the tech future? and our methods of using tech tools to process information? or just some BS that will be dwarfed by emerging tech companies in a decade or so?

In case you missed this whole controversy, it was a big journalism ethics mess about a week ago. This is the second job lost as a result of the whole thing.

CBS Sports fires the blogger behind a major error: He reported Joe Paterno died based on a single tweet that was only linked, not sourced. (He wasn't dead at the time, though he died about 12 hours later.)

+Doug Salter though many people might feel differently about that statement, I think it's a valid point. The memorial service was full of speakers who made similar points. Clearly the school and Paterno could have done more, but I think stories like these bring out a lot of emotion that's hard to control. That's why, in cases like these, it's important journalism does its job, reports the facts honestly, and otherwise stays out of the way.

Kodak's on the road to bankruptcy, sources say. Sounds like someone lost the plot.

I think the problem was deeper. Kodak could never compete with serious camera makers like Canon, Nikon etc. They traditionally produced affordable and simple cameras aimed at rather inexpirienced users. So even before the advance of the digital cameras, Kodak cameras had a reputation of very generic product, the one you'd rather buy to your grandma but would never use yourself.
They are still pro at making the films, but that is all. They just never managed (if they really ever tried) to rebrand themselves as the makers of the cameras for professional and enthusiast markets.
I still visit their website from time to time and they are absolutely living in the past, with the products nobody wants (I'm talking about cameras here).
