  3. Tango's new video features are silly, but not that silly

    The first time I ever video-chatted over a mobile device was about two years ago, almost to the day. It was a Thanksgiving call to my parents back home over an iPhone 4 while I was living in New York. The call was no-frills. I used the videoconference service Tango because my apartment had no Wi-Fi, and I couldn’t use Apple’s much-hyped onboard FaceTime app.

  4. Cry Me a River: Why Justin Timberlake's MySpace can't take on Spotify and Rhapsody

    It’s dangerous when actors confuse a role with reality. Imagine if Daniel Craig, for instance, suddenly believed he were James Bond and chased villains across the tops of trains. Or if Nicholas Cage really thought he could take his face...off. Today, we are seeing why Justin Timberlake should probably only play an entrepreneur in the movies.

  6. South African shopping startup has one simple rule: No marketers allowed

    Facebook has been desperately trying to lure marketers to its platform in an attempt to breath life into its stock. (Just today, the company started offering marketers software that tracks the purchases of Facebook users that have click on their ads. And the company has recently taken heat for charging brands for their social reach.) But one shopping startup is doing just the opposite. For now, Pashash is based on one principle: No marketers allowed.

  7. Friday fun: Apple, David Petraeus, and a dystopian near-future

    Here’s some Friday fun: A dystopian near-future where Apple is embroiled in warfare in China. President Michael Bloomberg and Vice President David Petraeus (yes, that Patraeus, everyone’s favorite new soap opera character) are leading the country through the strife. Yielding to shareholder pressure and a mess of patent litigation, Apple has ditched whimsical consumer design and has turned to producing military drones. And the hacker group Anonymous is still messing shit up.

  8. Some companies are experiments. It's okay if they fail

    There's a reason the term "serial entrepreneur" exists in Silicon Valley. Yes, part of it is because some people just love the hunger and romanticism of a startup, and they want to chase that feeling. Many other times, it's because building a successful startup is just so damn hard. Naval Ravikant thinks the way early companies are funded now is making it harder.
