  2. Facebook's Yahoo Smackdown: This Is Why Consultants Shouldn't Run Tech Companies

    As we wrote yesterday, Yahoo is really no longer being run by Yahoo. Astoundingly for a company as bloodied in the market as Yahoo, it's hard to know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

  3. Backstory: Push A Button, Custom Tailor Your Site For Each And Every Visitor

    We, as website operators (and I say "we" because, well, who doesn't own a domain or three these days?), know a ridiculous amount about the people visiting our sites. Even if we don't really try to gather any information, we can generally determine what sort of device the user is visiting from, what website lead them to us, and which pages of ours they've seen, getting a rough idea of where they are in the real-world. Pretty much the only thing you can't tell is how many cats a visitor owns — and really, I'm sure that's hidden in the user agent data somewhere.

  6. On Writing from the Boonies

    In Upstate New York, it's easier to find a drug dealer than it is a decent Internet connection. This is the region that has decided to make a name for itself, growing grapes and outsourcing any labor-intensive work to the Amish, while the rest of us attempt to find something, anything to do.

  7. 1000memories Launches Shoeboxes, Photo Storage, and Collaboration

    Out in my garage, my family has tub after tub of old photographs that we never see. The problem with it all is that they are so disorganized, that we never get to see them, yet there are so many photographs, that's all we want to do.

  8. Nitro Raises $3.5 Million to Take On Adobe Acrobat

    In 2005, Nitro PDF set out to make documents smarter, launching an Adobe Acrobat alternative that's free and simplified. The idea was to use intuitive features, a freemium model, and a paradoxically badass name to do documents better than the reigning prince of PDFs.
