  1. SafeApp Certificate aims to provide a clean bill of health for Android apps

    SafeApp Mobility founder Joe Santilli is the first, and hopefully last, person I’ve interviewed to compare downloading an app to having unprotected sex. Normally the only way to follow a sentence like that would be “So… that happened,” but I’m told that y’all want something called a “backstory” and “news,” so here goes.

  2. CSR goes downstream: Bright Funds to launch charitable giving tool for businesses

    You’re the giving type, and you care about starving children and clean water and trees and all those things you listed as key concerns on your Facebook profile to make everyone think you’re virtuous. It’s just that you forget, sometimes (all the time), to send money in the direction of those causes. Other things happen – those new heels, that latest phone, those undeniable ales – before you can get to the “save the world” corner of your bank account. You wish someone could just direct cash straight out of your paycheck into the causes you care about, and that maybe your company will even match what you give. Just like a pension plan.

  3. Your innovation is killing us

    Entrepreneurs and technologists, be careful with just how hard you push your innovating. One day it’s a photo app, the next it’s a self-aware nanofactory that has the ability to self-replicate ad infinitum and supplant the human race.

  4. The VC associate model is broken

    I want to talk about the venture capital associate problem. Everyone knows about it, though few are willing to talk about it.

  5. More iPad Minis may ship in 2013. Here’s what that means for retailers

    It would be too premature to call it a sea change, but it at least looks like smaller tablets are here to stay. And in perhaps no industry is that more compelling than in-store retail.

  6. CrowdTwist is changing the customer loyalty game through data

    Ask most Americans about customer loyalty programs and they’re likely to conjure up images of frequent flier accounts and grocery store rewards programs. But those decades old models are just a fraction of the story today, as brands are increasingly turning to the digital realm to market to, engage with, and reward their loyal audiences.

  7. What does it take to turn around a Web company? A look inside the only two we've ever seen

    Every time a has-been startup like Myspace or Digg or a big public company like Yahoo or AOL attempts a Web turnaround, the tech media is quick to remind them that Web turnarounds never work.

  8. Will the real "sharing economy" please stand up?

    Over the last year, every publication, everywhere has discovered the sharing economy. (Truly, e v e r y o n e, e v e r y w h e r e.)
